The Kilohearts Disperser transient-shaping plug-in utilizes all-pass filtering to achieve effects that you can't achieve with traditional filtering and EQ. All-pass filtering changes phase relationships of various frequencies without adjusting their gain. Used minimally, Disperser can soften transients and add girth to kick drums without upsetting your mix balance. At extreme settings, you can create filter-sweep effects that are unachievable with typical filters — perfect for sound design and electronic music production. With just two simple controls and an undeniably rich sonic character, Sweetwater is sure you'll find all sorts of creative applications for the Kilohearts Disperser transient-shaping plug-in.
Build a massive modular sound design system with Snapin plug-ins
On their own, Kilohearts plug-ins are formidable production and mixing tools. But when integrated using Kilohearts Snapin hosts — Snap Heap, Multipass, and Phase Plant — they evolve into a powerhouse modular sound design system. As the name implies, Kilohearts Snapin plug-ins literally “snap” into the Snapin hosts, allowing you to build massive processing chains and offering numerous ways to modulate parameters, stack effects in series or parallel, and creatively manipulate chains via automation and MIDI — all in a streamlined environment. Snap Heap arms you with four independent effects lanes, assignable envelope generators and LFOs, and the ability to control numerous parameters simultaneously with user-defined macros. Multipass ups the ante on the Snap Heap formula by including a frequency band splitter, which enables you to apply dedicated effects to individual frequency bands. For instance, you can completely transform a stock synth pad by saturating the low end and collapsing it to mono for more focus and heft, while adding a subtle chorus to the midrange frequencies and bathing the high frequencies in a pitch-shifting delay. Finally, Phase Plant combines Snapin plug-in functionality with an award-winning semi-modular soft synth to create a virtual instrument with unparalleled flexibility. With more than 30 Snapin plug-ins available, you’re free to assemble limitless combinations of effects that will color your productions with totally unique sounds!
Note: Kilohearts’ Snap Heap is available for free. Multipass and Phase Plant are sold separately.
