Developer (Un)familiar offers a 24% discount on the new Spectralsand plugin and a FREE version for macOS, Windows, and Linux.
Spectralsand is a spectral delay plugin from (Un)familiar, and for a short time, you can grab it for $15.19 (usually $19.99).
If the sale price seems a little random, don’t worry; it makes perfect sense; the developer released the plugin on their birthday, the 24th of January, hence a 24% discount, and the special price will be available until the 7th of February 2024.
The free Mud Edition has a limited feature set and is locked to v1.0.0, but it’s still well worth checking out.
The clever plugin allows you to alter the timbre of any source material/sound beyond recognition (or less dramatically if you’re so inclined). It breaks down the frequency spectrum into tiny bits called bins, each delayed by a specified amount of time that you can manipulate in various ways, including basic shapes, white noise, and custom waveforms.
The range of sounds you can create is limited by little more than your curiosity for experimenting with time.
Spectralsand can break your input into any number between 128 and 2048 bins, which you can set by adjusting the Binsize.
The Time parameter defines the time that each bin is delayed, and you can offset the time between the left and right channels to create ultra-wide delays.
You can change the oscillator type by selecting from available shapes or drawing a custom oscillator. The custom oscillator function is only available in the paid version of Spectralsand.
Another function limited to the paid version is Sidechain Mode, which has a handy Boost feature to enhance the sidechain.
The most unusual or experimental results might come when using the Feedback function, which feeds delays back into themselves. As always, such functions come with a tendency to escalate quickly; should that happen, the dev has included an aptly named Panic button.
If the results aren’t already random enough, you get a handy Randomizer that will lead you to all kinds of chaos. You can reign in the chaos, if you choose, by blending the delayed output and original input.
If quirky and experimental is your thing, don’t forget to check out Strange Audio Loops gRainbow update.
Spectralsand is available in VST3 format for macOS, Windows, and Linux. It is a result of a couple of years of effort, so thank you (Un)familiar. for the hard work!
