Special Bundle that includes I WIsh + Manipulator + Gatekeeper
TAKE ANY SOUND IN THE WORLD, FREEZE IT IN TIME AND SCULPT MIND BENDING SOUNDS AND MUSIC
I Wish is a pitch freezer plug-in. It allows you to take any sound – a vocal recording, a drum beat or even noise, and instantly freeze it in time and pitch. The pitch-frozen audio can then be manipulated and modulated to create highly musical mind bending effects and sounds that have never been heard before! Is it a synthesizer? is it an effect? Its both!
SO WHAT EXACTLY DOES THIS PLUG-IN DO?
When you hit a note on your midi keyboard, the plugin creates a tiny loop, at the wavelength of that note.
I Wish allows you to freeze your audio in any pitch you like. There are various uses for this plug-in such as creating robotic voice effects, pitched stutter effects, musical drum beats, mind bending ear candies – the possibilities are endless! It can even be used as a polyphonic synthesizer, with real-time wavetable oscillators! This essentially allows you to make music from noise. I Wish is the only plug-in that allows pitch based micro-editing on the fly. Since the result is heavily dependent on the audio and MIDI you feed the plug-in, it will always be highly personalized and unique to you.
The idea for this plug-in came from Infected Mushroom’s work on their track “I Wish”, in which they manually chopped and edited tiny loops for several days in order to achieve the desired special effect. This plugin creates the same effect, but instantly, instead of several days.
Polyverse Music have created a rough prototype VST of the plug-in for the group’s personal use. However, after two years of using the plug-in Infected Mushroom have decided the plug-in was too good to be kept for themselves, and decided to release their secret weapon! By the time we have finished developing I Wish, Infected Mushroom have have been using it extensively throughout their latest album “Converting Vegetarians 2”.
- The only pitch freezer plug-in on the market.
- Modulate pitch and formant.
- Real-time polyphonic Wavetable synthesizer.
- Pitch based micro-editing on the fly.
- Produce extremely controlled stutter effects.
- Create attention grabbing ear candies.
- Endless creative possibilities.
- Supports VST / AU / AAX plug-in formats
Through unique granular algorithms, Manipulator can dramatically alter the timbre and pitch of monophonic audio in new and unexplored ways. From subtly imposing pitch and harmonization, to a full-on sonic mangle that will leave you with a totally new sound, Manipulator is as versatile as it is creativity-inducing.
- Bend and sculpt your sounds into new ones
- Alter timbre and pitch of vocals and instruments
- 10 Different effects with endless combinations
- Change melodies of existing performances
- Create harmonies with up to 4 polyphonic voices
- Extensive modulation capabilities
- Real-time processing for live performance
- Supports VST / AU / AAX plug-in formats
Equipped with 10 different effects including pitch processing, formant, harmonics, sound smearing, pseudo stereo and more, Manipulator can take a normal vocal and transform it into a complex, entrancing new sound. Other monophonic and rhythmic sources work particularly well with Manipulator.
Like I Wish, Manipulator allows users to accept midi data in real time, allowing pitch shifting to be controlled on the fly via midi controller. Didn’t like the vocal melody in a take? Play it the way you hear it! Manipulator transposes pitch seamlessly and adds a unique texture to incoming audio. Manipulator supports up to 4 polyphonic voices when used with a midi input.
A large part of Infected Mushroom’s signature sound is their array of vocal manipulation techniques. Most of the vocals on their albums are actually mangled, edited, chopped, and heavily processed – all in the pursuit of making them sound like synthesizers.
It’s not hard to see why making the ultimate plug-in for voice transformations
was the obvious next step after “I Wish”.
Through our unique “Artistic feedback” process, the artists use ever-changing prototypes to make their own music, Manipulator has morphed and evolved into what it is today. Throughout its creation, Infected Mushroom have used it extensively throughout their 2017 release “Return to the Sauce”.
Gatekeeper is the cutting edge of volume modulation. Capable of sample-fast transitions and equipped with a unique variable smoothing algorithm, Gatekeeper allows for drastic, punchy gating and sequencing while keeping the output smooth. Breathe new life into your audio with the most basic, yet impactful way: silence.
- Sample fast and precise volume modulation
- Expressive and fun envelope drawing tools
- Boost and clip features for extra punch
- Smoothing algorithm to eliminate clicks and pops
- 8 independent volume envelopes
- Fully customizable midi-triggering
- Panning tools
- Tempo mapped looping
- CV output for Modular synths
- Hundreds of presets
Gatekeeper can act as an LFO, envelope, step sequencer, sample-accurate volume automation and more.
With 8 MIDI programmable envelopes, and even CV output for external hardware, Gatekeeper is a Swiss army knife of creative expression. Even more so, it includes hundreds of presets that will spice up your sounds. Whether used in production, mixing, or sound design, Gatekeeper always has something to bring to the table.
PRECISE, EXPRESSIVE DESIGNING TOOLS
Never again be frustrated by clunky editing interfaces! Curve brushes and an elaborate shortcut system makes drawing automation fun and easy, while 31 kinds of envelope brushes and 4 copy slots allow for exceedingly intricate designs. Need long drawn out patterns? With up to 1024 nodes, Gatekeeper can create a sequence up to a whopping 20 hours long.
THE NEXT KEY TO INFECTED MUSHROOM’S ARSENAL
Since a large part of Infected Mushroom’s signature sound has always involved volume envelopes and rhythmic gates, it’s easy to see why they teamed up with Polyverse to bring the fastest, most accurate and flexible volume modulator to the world. Gatekeeper contains all of the secret techniques Infected has been using for years, all the way to their most recent creations.
Through our unique “Artistic feedback” process, artists use ever-changing prototypes while making their own music, allowing Gatekeeper to naturally evolve into its best form.
