Santa Cruz, CA (July 7, 2016)—Plugin Alliance, working with Unfiltered Audio, has released Fault, an unusual pitch- and time-correction plug-in.
Fault's processors can be used sparingly to improve the quality of poorly recorded tracks or, at extreme settings, transform them into something that's unrecognizable from the original.
Three main processors form the core of Fault's toolkit. The stereo Frequency Shifter can be used in ring-modulator mode to add missing spectra to poorly recorded drum and percussion tracks—restoring detail and impact—or modulated by high-resolution FM controls to create discordant sounds on pitched instruments. The dual-channel Pitch Shifters execute fractional-semitone to full-octave shifts—up or down—reportedly without artifacts. Two independent Delays can be synchronized to the host's tempo and use filters and discrete dual-channel or cross-channel feedback to add depth.
Six customizable feedback paths—three each for the Frequency Shifter and Delays—create complex textures. Fault also includes Unfiltered Audio's flagship modulation system, which provides six freely assignable modulators—sine LFO, sawtooth/triangle LFO, square-wave LFO, input follower, sample-and-hold noise, and a macro control knob—with drag-and-drop virtual patching to every control knob and switch in the plugin's GUI. Mid-side processing adjusts the stereo image from mono to wide. A soft clipper and sampling-rate crusher add lo-fi character. A Dry/Wet mix control provides parallel processing.
Fault can also create conventional effects including ping-pong delays, chorus, flanging, octaver, tape recorder-style varispeed ADT effects and more.
Unfiltered Audio plugins, as well as all other Plugin Alliance products, are provided in AAX native, VST and AU formats for Mac OS 10.6 or higher and Windows 7 through 10. All Plugin Alliance products are available as fully functional 14-day demos at Plugin-Alliance.com.
