Prepare to embark on a sonic journey like no other with Motion: Harmonic, a groundbreaking plugin developed by Excite Audio. This powerful tool combines distortion, filtering, and bitcrushing to offer a dynamic and immersive sound-shaping experience that will revolutionize your audio production.
At the core of Motion: Harmonic lies the Hexagon controller, an innovative interface that invites you to explore and manipulate your sound in real-time. With its interactive and visually captivating design, this intuitive controller empowers you to push the boundaries of your audio creations. Whether you opt for precise mouse movements or intricate patterns, the Hexagon allows you to craft expressive and evolving soundscapes effortlessly.
Excite Audio has masterfully crafted the distortion section of Motion: Harmonic, offering a rich palette of sonic possibilities. From subtle warmth to intense saturation, the plugin provides precise control over drive, tone, and character. The Dynamic parameter adds an extra layer of responsiveness, allowing the distortion effect to adapt to the transients in your audio. Additionally, the Feedback control introduces resonant feedback loops, while the Mix control seamlessly blends the original signal with the distorted elements.
Bitcrushing enthusiasts will be delighted by Motion: Harmonic’s ability to recreate the lo-fi charm of early digital systems. By manipulating the bit depth and sample rate, you can achieve authentic vintage degradation and gritty textures. The Dynamic control focuses the bitcrushing effect on transients, while the Lo and Hi sliders enable you to target specific frequency bands. The inclusion of pre-filters and the Mix control provides further flexibility, allowing you to strike the perfect balance between the original signal and the destructive bitcrushed elements.
Motion: Harmonic’s filtering capabilities are equally impressive, offering a wide range of sonic sculpting tools. The high-pass and low-pass filters, under the control of the Hexagon, bring movement, character, and rhythmic textures to your audio. By modulating these filters, you can create undulating effects, sweeping motions, and precise frequency manipulations. The Peak Filter adds a touch of complexity, enabling you to replicate spectral resonance and unique phaser-like sounds. Customization options such as adjusting the number of peaks, frequency, and shape, as well as the Contrast and Invert switches, further enhance your creative possibilities.
Visual feedback plays a crucial role in the Motion: Harmonic experience. The plugin features a reactive 3D visualizer that provides real-time insights into the effects of your settings on the wet signal. Switch between distortion and bitcrushing visualizers to observe the impact on your sound and make informed adjustments. Additionally, the peak filter and LP/HP visualizers offer valuable information about the frequency spectrum, allowing you to precisely shape and mold your audio.
Excite Audio’s Motion: Harmonic is a must-have tool for producers, sound designers, and musicians seeking to unlock new dimensions of creativity. Its innovative Hexagon controller, versatile distortion and bitcrushing effects, and comprehensive filtering options make it a game-changer in the world of audio manipulation. Experience the power of Motion: Harmonic and elevate your sound to unprecedented heights.
