Available here as one convenient package, the Delta Sound Labs Alpha Bundle gives you Stream and Fold 1.0 in one simple download. The two plug-ins are quite complementary. Stream is a granular sampler synthesizer intended for sound design and creative composition, giving you a cleaner sound compared to other granular synths. And when paired with Fold 1.0, cleanliness goes out the window. Fold 1.0 is a distortion powerhouse, offering you everything from sutble saturation to mangled bitcrushing, and everything in between.
Available for download, Delta Sound Labs Stream is a granular sampler plug-in intended for sound design, though it presents a latency low enough for dependable live use. Granular synthesis is noted for its ability to take an aspect of a sample and stretch it in all sorts of strange glitchy ways. What distinguishes this granular synthesizer, however, is its cleaner sound when compared to others in the granular space. Because of this clean, relatively artifact-free sound, the plug-in works great for layering effects.
Stream is very easy to use; Drag and drop a sample into the GUI, and select a section of the sample to focus on. Then, you can manipulate the section's grains, which are essentially small slices of the audio that make up the larger sound. You can control how many grains you use with the Voice control, increase or decrease the size of each Grain with the Grain Size knob, or adjust how the grains overlap with the Spread control. Adjust how the grains are triggered with the Reverse control, control randomization with the linear-to-jitter fader, and more.
Stream can operate in Mac and Windows systems. It will work in AU, VST, VST3, and AAX formats.
Create warm saturation and distortion effects in your digital mix with Delta Sound Labs Fold 1.0, a downbloable plug-in for use in your DAW. With this software, you can imbue your instruments with rich harmonic saturation, or completely mangle them with all kind of distortion.
Hard clipping, soft clipping, wavefolding, bit-crushing, and more are at your fingertips. Analog-style high- and low-pass filters can alter the tone of your instruments. With four syncable LFOs, each with three selectable waveform types, Fold 1.0 with let you achieve creative and dynamic distortion effects as well. As distortion can often create undesirable aliasing, Fold 1.0 allows for oversampling up to 16x. The plug-in is compatible on MacOS and Windows operating systems, and operates in AU, VST3, and AAX formats.
