VSTi-plugin «Marazmator», is the virtual synthesizer creating unusual sound forms. The subject of sounds strikes with the variety, it both sound space plots, and the natural phenomena, sounds of technical character (engines, mechanisms, the tool and тп), different voices, and sound objects which are simply not giving in to any description. The synthesizer can be used in different genres and the directions to the modern electronic and experimental music such as: Ambient, Chillout, Industrial, Noise, Dub, Jungle, Drum'n'Bass, Trance and so forth. It can be used as the generator of special effects in audio tracks for different applications, games, theatrical performances, movies (documentary, a fantasy, mysticism тп). With its help it is possible how to create the very long on time morfiruyemy sound forms, and rhythmic repeating - loops (Loop). We hope that by means of this plug-in you will be able to bring new sound forms which will surprise listeners to this world, will make your music more various and more interesting!
Marazmator - a monothematic synthesizer as polyphony in this case doesn't make a sense, synthesizer sounds in most cases have no musicality determination. But for the organization of the polyphonic mode if that is required, it is necessary to create several enkzemplyar of a plug-in.
Functionally, the synthesizer is a set of the functional units:
Three generators with four types of wave forms: sine, triangle, saw and reverse saw. Oscillations of each generator is exposed to amplitude distortions: distortions (direct and reverse) and bit reductions. Generators connect according to a certain diagram, providing nine options of switching of communications in between, to different modes of interaction: frequency (F) and multiplied (M) modulations.
Pipe - the filter. The virtual analog of a pipe through which there passes the sound, resounding on the overtones depending on its geometrical sizes.
The LF and HF adjustable filters with different types of filtering: biquadratic filter, Butterworth and Chebyshev filters.
The unit of effects including a flanger and a reverberator.
Presets control box.
Banks with presets, sequencer patterns, and also the detailed reference guide in the English and Russian languages are a part of a set of installation in addition to the synthesizer that considerably simplifies use of this plug-in.
