PRESS RELEASE – Ukraine – Sinevibes has released Skew, a non-linear audio reverser effect plugin. Perfectly synchronized to the host transport, Skew is constantly recording the incoming audio into a buffer — and playing it back in reversed chunks. The big trick in this algorithm is that it’s able to warp its playback speed via a selection of non-linear curves, thus bending the pitch in various ways. With each parameter having an extremely wide range of adjustment, Skew can be used to create multiple rhythmically-precise effects such as reversing, tape rewind, pitch slides, detune, glitching, and scratching. Thanks to its fine calibration, responsiveness, and DJ-style crossfade control, Skew can easily be automated or manipulated in real-time to add exciting musical complexity and create cool build-ups, breaks, and transitions.
Skew Sound Engine Highlights
- Audio reverser with precise transport synchronization
- Six non-linear curves for warping the audio playback speed
- Fractional chunk size adjustment with 256 possible values (any fraction from 1/16 note to 16 bars)
- Meticulously tuned smoothing envelopes with optional overlapping
- DJ-style crossfade control
Sinevibes Skew is available now for $29. It requires macOS 10.9 or later, an Intel or Apple Silicon processor, and an AU, VST3, or AAX plugin host.
