Sinevibes Corrosion v2 plugin takes the concept of its predecessor to the next distortion level with more algorithms, more accuracy, better sound, VST3 support, and more.
The talented effect plugin developer Sinevibes is currently working on the modernization of its popular macOS plugins. I’m very happy about these updates because these plugins are innovative and sound excellent. And priced very fair.
Corrosion is a 4x oversampled distortion plugin packed with unique algorithms supported by analog-style anti-aliasing filters. Corrosion v2 is the successor, offers everything of the first but incorporated in a new, improved DSP engine with more features.
Sinevibes Corrosion v2
Corrosion v2 is a big update, with optical but also many new engine features. Starting with the newly designed user interface with size scaling up to 200%. A nice improvement, especially for users of high-resolution screens. Sinevibes added VST3 support to the plugin. AAX will follow in the near future, the developers are currently testing it. They ship it with all-new presets that are built into a new preset manager. A premiere for Corrosion.
Besides optical and workflow improvements, the engine got a major makeover. Corrosion v2 includes a redesigned DSP chain with a built-in noise gate and simultaneous cutoff frequency. They also expanded the original distortion algorithms with four new juicy ones for a total of 15. It includes parabolic, sine clip, sine bend, and symmetric warp. Then, it brings control for the upsampling filter, -48dB/octave stage-variable crossover high-pass filter and a new stereo tilt control for the distortion gain.
The plugin now has a new oversampling engine with a smoother sound and a support higher maximum input gain level (from 18 to 24dB). Also new is:
- Thorough state initialization when receiving the reset() call from the host
- Natural parameter mapping (quadratic or cubic) on more controls
- Support for any buffer size requested by the plugin host
- Consistent name, mapping, value, and unit implemented for all parameters in both graphic user interface and host control/automation
Sinevibes Corrosion v2 is available now for $39 USD + VAT and runs as a macOS VST3 and AU plugin. Existing Corrosion v1 customers can upgrade for $10 to the new version.
