Music Unfolding announces the release of F8-V2 ($35), an Audio Units plug-in effect available for Mac OS X as a Universal Binary. F8-V2 has eight LFOs and eight time-varying amplitude modulators, and works by copying the audio input into eight independent streams. Each LFO and sequence pattern is set independently. The filters are set as highpass, bandpass or lowpass.
Each filter has a resonance and cut-off frequency control. The LFO applies to the cut-off frequency of the filter. The rate, phase and depth are set independently for each filter. The “X” control applies to all eight filters equally. If the value is greater than zero, the filters have a faster roll-off. As “X” is increased, the resonance of the filters becomes sharper.
An amplitude modulation pattern is applied independently to each stream. The amplitude modulation sequence patterns are drawn with easy-to-use editing tools based on Bezier curves, making it possible to custom design any amplitude envelope of any shape. The volume for each stream is set in the “mini-mixer.” The streams can be set to apply to both stereo channels or as stereo-split. The tempo is set by the bpm control or synced to the Audio Unit host.
F8-V2 comes with more than 200 presets that are organized by category.
