Droplet

Droplet raindrop delay

BUY NOW ... TRY DEMO ... PDF MANUAL

Droplet is a plugin for modeling “raindrop delay” effects. It is based on a chain of 24 randomized delay lines, specially configured to produce a sound similar to drops of rain or small particles falling onto a surface. This delay chain features variable frequency damping, time modulation with original phase-flipped routing, as well as chaotic stereo panning, all of which lets Droplet go much beyond the actual raindrop delay – and into granular clouds, dreamy spaces and lush chorused reverbs. Since the parameters are randomized each time a Droplet instance is created, just as any natural process it will never sound exactly the same - even the same preset on two different tracks in the same project will sound different.

As always with a Sinevibes product, Droplet has a carefully crafted, clean and intuitive user interface. It features color-coded graphics for consistency with other plugins in our collection and well-calibrated contrast for optimal visibility in most lighting conditions. The interface supports retina resolution and also uses GPU-accelerated rendering, never impairing audio processing.


Sound engine

  • Chain of feedback delay lines with 24 “drops” and high-quality spline interpolation.
  • Variable delay time and stereo pan randomization per drop.
  • Feedback damping filter with low-pass and high-pass modes.
  • Sine oscillator for delay time modulation with unique phase-flipped routing.

Graphic interface

  • Color-coded graphics with subtle animations.
  • Fully hardware-accelerated rendering with support for retina screen resolution.

Compatibility

  • Works with any application that supports Audio Unit effect plugins.
  • Supports OS X 10.6 or later running on 32 or 64 bit Intel Macs.
Update 1.0.2
– Dramatically reduced processor load in modulation stage.
