Sinevibes is well known for its nifty VST/AU plugins, but if you are a KORG synth user you have one more reason to check out its work – Node, a just-released four-operator FM synthesis engine for KORG prologue, minilogue xd and NTS-1.
Node is based on a classic setup with four sine oscillators (operators), which are connected together via multiple different algorithms that let them apply frequency modulation onto one another. This plugin neatly packages a total of 24 such FM algorithms and allows to set operator frequency ratios within an extremely wide range, delivering nearly 90,000 possible combinations – and opening a whole universe of timbres, from timeless classic to edgy modern. Node’s engine runs 2x oversampled and employs a special filter to suppress unpleasant aliasing frequencies, enabling a much cleaner sound even in the higher octave range.
Node also includes a very flexible built-in modulation generator that can be configured in a number of ways: exponential or linear envelopes, multi-waveform LFO, sample & hold, or random triangle. With these many features, Node is arguably the most user-configurable plugin available for KORG’s platform – yet it’s designed to be incredibly easy to use.
– Genuine four-operator FM synthesis engine – Internally runs at 96 kHz sample rate with an anti-aliasing filter, delivering superior audio quality even in the higher octave key range – 24 total FM algorithms: 12 base configurations plus two variations each – with and without a self-modulating feedback loop – Individual frequency ratio selection for operators 2, 3, and 4, plus variable operator detune – Flexible modulation generator with 24 modes: exponential envelopes, linear envelopes, multi-waveform LFO (triangle, saw, square, pulse, trapezoid, peak), sample & hold, and random triangle – Built-in lag filters for noise-free, ultra-smooth parameter adjustment and modulation
PRICE AND AVAILABILITY
Node is immediately available for $39. Existing Sinevibes customers are eligible for special upgrade pricing.
