Bent, A New Oscillator Plugin For Korg Synths From Sinevibes

Bent new oscillator for Korg synths

One of the cool things about Korg’s latest synths is their SDK (Software Development Kit) that allows developers to program, customize and extend the capabilities of the multi-engine and digital effects.
It’s still early days, but Sinevibes has been on the forefront of this development and today they announced Bent – an oscillator plugin compatible with the Korg Prologue and Minilogue XD.

Bent implements a novel synthesis method called “bent-wave frequency modulation”, developed by Sinevibes (if you’re not familiar with their work, have a look at our Sinevibes coverage).

Bent combines a classic modulator-carrier pair of sine oscillators with a unique “bender” module which changes the modulator signal’s curvature, phase, and time symmetry. Despite the “FM” part, bent-wave FM produces sounds more akin to a mix of two synchronized and filtered analog oscillators – with smooth, elastic waveform morphing. Due to its specific density and rounded curvature, Bent also forms a perfect symbiosis with Korg’s resonant low-pass filter, creating sounds with incredible plasticity.

Here’s a video overview of Bent, while below you’ll also find a Soundcloud playlist with some audio demos.

PRICING

Bent for Korg multi engine costs $29. It comes with an in-depth PDF user manual and 16 preset patches for both prologue and minilogue xd. Bent is also available as a bundle with the previously released Turbo variable waveshaping oscillator, they both can be purchased for $49 (15% discount).

Full details about Bent can be found at the Sinevibes website.
