Plugin Alliance have released a second plugin at the same time as the Brainworx bx_rooMS reverb plugin. This second release is a major upgrade to the Unfiltered Audio Sandman delay/looper plugin - Sandman Pro and in a double promotion to celebrate Sandman Pro’s release, Plugin Alliance is offering special upgrade pricing and a freebie.
What Is Sandman From Unfiltered Audio?
Plugin Alliance describe Sandman as a "Swiss army knife of delay effects and a mutating granulator", Sandman Pro is designed to deliver an assortment of time-based effects, from conventional to wildly experimental effects, Sandman Pro offers flanging, phasing, chorus, ping-pong delays, 16-tap delays, automatic double tracking, reverse echoes, reverb, pitch shifting, harmonizing, granular synthesis, percussion resonator, stutter generator, glitch effects and many more.
New Features In Sandman Pro
There are seven new delay modes that are designed to optimise Sandman Pro for a wide variety of applications. Classic Tape mode adds virtual tape saturation, wow and flutter to traditional delay effects and to unorthodox loops and grains created by Sandman Pro's metamorphosing Sleep (delay) buffer. The Multi-Tap mode delivers 16 simultaneous delay lines that can be used to create massive doubling, ensemble and echo effects. The Reverse mode produces click-free, reverse echoes. Sandman Pro's delay time can be modulated, using Modern Instant mode, to morph thick flanging or doubling into long echo trails in real time. The dual-mono Pitch Shifter mode can create vocal harmonies, shimmer effects, metallic textures and more, while Glitch Shifter mode can add instability to pitch-shifted signals for an unorthodox effect. DJs should check out the modulating Sandman Pro's Sleep button in No Echo mode to create stutter and glitch effects on the fly. The new Echoes section in Sandman Pro includes a stereo feedback network and a Diffusion control, which is designed to blend any delay tail you create into thick reverberant pads.
Sandman Pro has also been upgraded to include Unfiltered Audio's modulation system: six freely assignable and fully automatable modulators (sine LFO, sawtooth/triangle LFO, square-wave LFO, input follower, sample-and-hold noise, and macro control knob) can be patched to each and every control via intuitive drag-and-drop patching. Modulating Sandman Pro's frozen Sleep buffer, electronic-music producers and sound designers can build libraries of effects, loops and wavetable grains, while studio engineers can create innovative sounds that keep their mixes ahead of the pack. DJs and musicians can use the modulation system's macro knob to simultaneously control multiple parameters in multi-effects presets to create song transitions during their live set.
