Snap Heap is a modular Snapin Host which allows you to build up to seven serial or parallel effects chains and modulate every parameter using Kilohearts' powerful modular modulation system.
The open modular architecture of the Kilohearts Ecosystem gives you the freedom to design any effect you can imagine.
Snap Heap comes with Kilohearts Essentials, a large range of useful effects plugins. These are all available as Snapins to be combined and modulated as you desire. Premium Effects are available to buy separately to further bolster your sound design capabilities. Once a preset is saved it will be fully functional for anyone you share it with, regardless of which Snapins they own.
A unique modular modulation section allows you to connect modulators and utilities in an infinite number of combinations for ultimate control, or ultimate chaos. Whether it’s ultra-precise envelopes and LFOs you need or wild randomisation for unpredictable chaotic mangling... you can build it with the Kilohearts Ecosystem.
At every point in the signal chain, all our software is optimised for the highest quality processing with the lowest possible CPU load. For professional music production and sound design, you won’t ever have to worry about shortcomings in sound quality again.
All our plugins come loaded with a broad range of factory presets from some of the most highly-regarded sound designers in the game. Whether you’re in need of a solid starting point to customise and make your own, or just love to reverse-engineer incredibly patches to learn exactly how they work, you will find just what you need in the presets folder.
Once you buy a license for any Kilohearts plugins you will get all future updates for free. We won’t charge you a penny for new versions. And we will continue to improve all our software with new features and OS compatibility (yes, it’s all M1 Native already!), which means that investing in Kilohearts software is a very sensible move for the serious sound designer.
All our plugins and Content Banks are included in the Kilohearts Subscription. The subscription also gives you instant access to all new releases as soon as they are available.
For every 12 months you subscribe, you'll also get a $100 in Subscriber Rewards to put towards permanent licenses for any of our products.
"Kilohearts plugins have been such a game-changer for us when we've needed to either adjust something quickly with the single easy to use plugins or while get really weird and creative with the Multipass & Snapheap on different sounds. We've used it in every project since we learned about them! Such great tools that we feel every producer should have."
"Snap Heap is the first tool out there that have allowed us to integrate audio fx into the expressive part of a sound. The ability to modulate effects straight from the keyboard via velocity and pitchopens up a new dimension to our sound design process. Most tools out there require us to make a choice, either the hard way with lots of possibilities, or the easy way with the downside of many limitations. The beauty of Snap Heap is we don´t have to make that choice, it manages simplicity without creative restrictions."

"I am a huge fan of the Kilohearts ecosystem! Their tools and instruments find their way into every one of my projects. I use the standalone effects for really quick jobs, and also to build more complex rack-effects within Snap Heap and Multipass.
Which leads me to Phase Plant. A go-to instrument to dial up sounds for quick tasks, but I’ll also spend hours building crazy patches and even load up my crazy Snap Heap and Multipass patches within Phase Plant as part of the fun.
This versatility is what makes Kilohearts some of the most powerful and useful creative tools I have!"
