Sinevibes Stator, new flexble tape wobble simulation plugin that takes Korg logue synthesizers with a wow & flutter infusion back to the 80s
Tape machine emulations seem to be trending in 2021. Or rather the 80s sound vibe is on. More tape plugins have hit the market than ever before. Plugins and hardware? Yes, the Korg Logue synths offer a platform in which you can load in specially developed plugins.
Sinevibes makes currently one of the best sounding and most innovative algorithms for the Logue SDK enviroment. And now also a tape effect, but one with a special touch.
Stator is a tape wobble simulator plugin for Korg Logue synths. According to Sinevibes, it uses a creative approach to replicate the effects of speed fluctuations in tape machines aka wow and flutter. It also emulates scrape flutter caused by the friction of the tape against the tape head.
Artemiy Pavlov, founder of Sinevibes goes even deeper in the topic. His team has modeled gentle phasing artifacts produced by crosstalk between the stereo channels. This makes the effect more authentic and organic.
The operation is super straigthforward with two parameters. Speed simultaneously adjust the relative frequencies of the modulation sources while depth sets the pitch modulation depth. Stator is capable of creating lovely stereo choruses or best-known lo-fi pitch wobbles. Or with slow pitch modulations, you can simply add something organic to any sound. This in combination with a delay or reverb, gives you instant 80s vibes.
If you want to transport your Korg Logue Synthesizer in vintage lo-fi terrorities, it is difficult to get past this new algorithm.
