Simulate lo-fi sound sources
When nostaliga hits, Bitcrush can bring you back to the digital hardware of times past. It simulates the audio being played back using a low quality sampler with limited sample rate and bit depth. Mm, crunchy.
Enhanced stereo effect
The Chorus enhances the stereo effect and presence of a sound by mixing it with delayed versions of itself. It's like your own personal choir!
Cut frequencies at intervals
The Comb Filter hollows out the sound by carving out frequencies at each multiple of the base frequency, like the teeth of a comb.
Someone somewhere once said that there are 931 compressor plugins in the world. Well, now there's 932!
While large echoing cavernous chambers seldom are the first pick for a good acoustic space, Delay effects have been ubiquitous in sound processing for a long time.
Magic all-pass filter
Disperser smears high energy transients through space and time without modifying the gain of the sound.
Versatile distortion effect
Ever since mankind invented music, there has been a desire to make it heavier.
[Citation needed] Distortion can take your sound from zero to sword wielding hero in seconds.
Dynamics preserving distortion
Faturator can do everything from adding subtle and warm gritty character to your sounds to slam them into a wall of heavy saturation and digital fuzz. Contrary to many distortion effects, Faturator will preserve the dynamics of your sound.
Common filter effects
kHs Filter is a resonant filter with 7 modes, swiftly getting rid of frequencies you don't like or enhancing frequencies you do. And it's doing it and doing it and doing it good
If your music doesn't get enough "Aahs" and "Oohs", maybe you should try putting them into the actual music? Formant Filter shapes the sound in a similar way to how the vocal tract works, leading to vowel-esque sounds.
Frequency shifter shifts the frequencies of a sound linearly across the spectrum, destroying the original harmonic relationship between frequencies.
Sound loud? Make softer. Sound quiet? Make louder.
Noise floor removal
kHs Gate has simple but powerful controls for tuning in the desired effect, and can easily be driven by an external sidechain signal. The gate can also be flipped around to make a signal duck under another.
Panning sound is key in mixing and sound placement, but amplitude is only part of how humans determine the direction of sound. The Haas effect targets another mechanism that detects small differences in time between left and right to position sound.
When you're looking for a bit of that vintage feel, Ladder filter will twist your basses into squelching retro-licks akin to those of the Moog or the 303. Crank the drive up an extra notch and it will even function as a warm distortion. Mmm, smooth.
Whether you want to crank the last drops of gain out of your track or just want to control a few loud peaks, a Limiter can be the weapon of choice.
Pretty much all the bad things with signal phase issues, but turned into an effect and labeled "cool".
Are you out of tune? Do you want to be? Either way, pitch shifter uses grain delay to bring the pitch where you want it to be. Or at least somewhere else from where it already is.
Specific frequency harmonics in the input sound are enhanced and propagated, giving you fine control over the sustain of a tone.
The kHs Reverb is a simple but powerful reverb, which helps you to quickly tune in the character you want.
Remember in The Ring when Samara kind of walks backwards but still towards you and it's all scary and weird? This is not really like that.
Multiply and conquer
The kHs Ring Mod uses either an internal sine/noise generator or a secondary input as the second signal in the modulation, and allows for versatile transformation of the modulating signal.
Width and panning
Tape speed simulation
kHs Tape Stop allows you to get great spindown/speedup sounds quickly with the push of a button.
Trance Gate is a gate sequencer which quickly adds a rhyth to a pad or lead, chops up a beat or adds more staccato to an arpeggio.
Customize Attack Character
When you want to carefully tweak the punch of your snare, the ricki-ticki-ticking of your hi-hats or the snappiness of a synth line, Transient Shaper is the right tool for the job.
