Unfiltered Audio’s newest release BYOME is a true sound design dream and is a plugin that lets you build your own modular effect processor with the help of over 40 effect modules!
Unfiltered Audio has made a name for itself in recent years for exciting plugins that specialize in complex sound design. The last plugins Scope, Dent 2,… have shown this beautifully with an easy-to-use modular engine. With their new plugin BYOME, they want to give musicians even more flexibility in sound design.
BYOME is a new effect processor plugin that allows musicians to built their own modular effect processor with the help of over 40 effect modules. They range from delays, distortions, granular, filters, reverbs and more. BYOME has the freedom you have in a modular Synthesizer but here in the effect world. Exciting is here that these effects can be modulated by a wide range of modulators like envelopes, gate sequencers, LFO’s and more.
With this one can thus design very deep and complete effects and alienate sounds extremely. If you love creating extraordinary sounds using advanced music technology, don’t miss the chance to test this new plugin from Unfiltered Audio.
Unfiltered Audio has returned with their most powerful plugin yet. BYOME (“Build Your Own Modular Effect”) combines Unfiltered’s endless modulation options with a collection of over 40 effect modules. Each effect has been meticulously engineered and tested for maximum impact without sacrificing usability.
Are you looking for a reverb to set your tracks apart? Check out Deep Reverb, a massive atmospheric goldmine with infinite echoes, custom tuned to make your synths sound epic. Want something more experimental? For the first time outside of the Rack Extension format, Unfiltered’s classic Renoun Reverb is back, a modulated reverb that can cleanly morph between classic rooms and impossible geometries. Want even more? The Lofi Reverb module is inspired by the classic recordings of computer music pioneers and features ten separate reverb algorithms!
Many of Unfiltered Audio’s legendary algorithms are represented here, from Sandman Pro’s Instant Delay to Fault’s Frequency Shifter. There are many new algorithms as well, including a powerful Phaser with up to 48 stages and variable harmonic all-pass tuning, a massive Granulator with up to +/- 4 octaves of pitch shifting and deep time shifting, and a Resonator Bank with four parallel comb filters for making any material harmonic.
BYOME isn’t only for sound designers and musicians. It’s an incredibly versatile mixing tool as well! Check out the Stereo Image module, a collection of eight classic mixing tricks with simplified controls (including a quick button to check what a mono mixdown would sound like). These algorithms include “Micro Pitch,” a method for subtly pitch shifting both channels, “Micro Delay,” “Mid/Side EQ,” or the wild “Rotation,” which maps your mix to an imaginary circle and spins it around in space. Need a Dynamics effect? Choose between the quick Auto Compressor, the deeper Compressor, the purpose-built Limiter, and the popular Noise Gate from G8. The Dynamics effects are compatible with external sidechains as well. We’ve also included a 3-Band EQ with a unique “Unity Gain” feature and a Panner with multiple pan laws. Want a deep Auto-Panner? Simply hook up the Panner to our incredible modulation system.
Speaking of the modulation system, we’ve added many new features and modules. For starters, the Input Follower can either monitor the main input or an external sidechain. Have you ever wanted to make a reverb that changes sizes in response to a kick? Now you can. We’ve extracted our critically-acclaimed analysis tools from our compressor, Zip, and turned it into the Spectral Follower module. Instead of only listening to a signal’s amplitude, you can generate an envelope follower from features like Brightness and Noisiness.
To get you started, BYOME includes a massive library of over 400 presets spanning a number of genres and techniques. For the more experimentally minded, Unfiltered Audio has partnered with Ivo Ivanov of Glitchmachines for the creation of 70 cutting-edge presets designed for the production of futuristic drums and percussion.
- Over 400 presets, including large libraries from Ivo Ivanov (Glitchmachines), Richard Devine, and ignatius
- Over 40 effect modules to choose from, spanning Delays, Distortions, Dynamics, Filters, Granular, Mixing, Modulation, and Reverbs
- Many new Modulators to choose from, including Spectral Follower and Probability Gate
- Supports external sidechain signals for Dynamics Effects and Follower Modulators
- Presets for individual Effects and Modulators
- Per-Section, per-Effect, and per-Modulator Randomization
BYOME for Windows and Mac (VST/VST3/AU/AAX) is available for the intro price of $179 USD (regular $249 USD). You can download a fully functional 14 days trial version from the Plugin Alliance website, no dongle required.
