The Kilohearts Snapin framework is the easiest, most creative, sound design workflow you have ever come across. This free bundle contains Snap Heap, a basic snapin host plugin, alongside 5 useful snapins.

Wha Wha What's it all about?

Managing effects is something that's possible in pretty much every digital audio workstation out there, but managing effect chains can be cumbersome and tedious. With Snap Heap managing complex effect systems is super simple and nothing stands between your creativity and the speaker cones.

Fast lane to success

Snap Heap is based around up to 4 routable lanes of modular "snapin" effects. Each lane can contain any number of snapins, and have individual gain, panning and dry/wet mixing. You can also move things around easily using a state of the art technology from the future of 1984 called "drag and drop".

Modulation station

While adding four filters a frequency shifter and a stereo width modifier can be interesting in itself, adding four filters with sweeping cutoff retriggered by audio threshold, a frequency shifter bound to the MIDI note and stereo width scaled by the input RMS can be... Well, probably strange. But it may be amazing, and trying it out is just a couple of clicks away. Try it!

We're serial about parallelizing

Sometimes you want effects to run in series, and sometimes you want them to run in parallel. In Snap Heap, switching between the two is as easy as the push of a button. Clicking the route button between two lanes links them together in parallel mode, running the same audio through both before mixing them together. Want all four lanes to go in parallel, or have two parallel with pre and post FX, or just about anything else? The choice is yours!

You have to focus, Trinity

When you're tweaking a specific effect in the chain, the other effects involved can sometimes make it hard to properly hear what's going on. Mute or solo effect lanes, to quickly home in on what you're doing. Snap Heap will take care of sorting out the routing so you hear just what you want to hear.

Honey, I'm 4 ms late

Don't worry about latency. No matter how you route things or what effects you add, Snap Heap makes sure everything is as in sync as they can be to make sure all modulation aligns properly and to avoid phasing issues.

What's a ?

Well, snapins are regular old VST/AU plugins that you can use for a multitude of purposes. They come in a bunch of different flavors and we create more all the time. The thing is that they also work as modular effect pieces that you can combine in our snapin host plugins, as you can see above. Nifty!

Snap Heap comes with these five basic but useful snapins:
