Endless Series v3 released!

I am very happy to announce the release of Endless Series version 3, my new VST and AudioUnit plugin.


blurb: "A unique synthesis and effect plugin based on the Shepard Tone auditory illusion. It generates mind bending infinite scales, psychedelic drones and fascinating sonic textures. Endless Series v3 works as a tone generator, a ring modulator, phaser, flanger or resonant filter bank effect."

I have been working on this for what seems like forever. It's totally rewritten in C++ and is a vast improvement on previous versions. Hopefully future plugins will be quicker to put out, since much of the work involved improving my C++ skills and improving the iplug framework to have the features that I wanted.

Final key feature list:
  • VST2/AudioUnit plugin based on the Shepard Tone auditory illusion
  • Additive tone generator with up to 40 partials
  • Circular pitch ring modulator, flanger, filter and 24 stage phaser FX
  • Glissando, auto-stepped and MIDI stepped modes
  • Many options to tweak harmonicity and timbre
  • Stereo detune, phase offset and auto-panning
  • Quantise pitches to 14 different scales
  • Soft clipping, extra harmonics and noise modulation
  • Fast ASR amplitude envelope in MIDI stepped mode
  • MIDI reset-able for repeatable output
  • Integrated help system
  • 32 high quality factory presets
I have redone my website, and have temporarily withdrawn my old products from sale. These are being rewritten too, but they need more work.
