Winter Is Coming With Puremagnetik Fathoms, A Glacial Soundscape Maker

The Summer heat is killing you? Puremagnetik got you covered with their latest plugin, Fathoms.

According to the developer, Fathoms is an ambient processor that can turn anything into a glacial soundscape, harmonic drone or endless pitch-shifted space. It spectrally processes incoming audio and routes it through a resonating, physically modeled space. Within the defined dimensions, it can pitch shift and send audio through a complex delay matrix.

The sound can be further augmented through filtering, spectral freezing and amplitude modulation. You can dive into deep sound design or simply use Fathoms as a reverb effect.

Spectral Pitch Processor
Fathoms spectrally analyses all incoming audio so that you can pitch shift or freeze it.

Filter
Tone sculpt the post-processed audio with simultaneous high and low, Moog style ladder filters.

Delay Matrix
Pre-reverb, all audio is sent through a delay matrix with amplitude modulation and feedback controls. The amplitude modulation is a variable random amount (adjustable with “Swell”) to give the effect a sense of natural modulation before it is routed into the resonant reverb.


Pricing
Fathoms is currently offered as part of Puremagnetik’s (ANR-recommended!) Spark subscription for $8 per month. After one month it will become back-cataloged for a la carte purchase at $20 USD.
