Artificial Audio: Obelisk For Windows

Artificial Audio has announced that Obelisk is now available as a VST plug-in for Windows XP and Windows Vista.

The Windows version is free for all registered owners of Obelisk for Mac.

Obelisk is a spectral multi-effect that combines a Spectral Delay, a Spectral Filter and a Spectral Gate together with a Spectrum Analyzer and 2-Dimensional LFOs to modulate the effect settings.

Obelisk separates the incoming audio signal into frequency bands. Each frequency band has its own Delay with Feedback, its own Filter and its own Gate. Hundreds of parameters can be controlled by drawing “effect lines” into the Analyzer Point View. Obelisk has three 2-Dimensional LFOs to modulate the effect parameters.


Spectral Analysis / Synthesis:
  • Spectral analysis and synthesis (256 or 512 frequency bands).
  • Adjustable frame size and overlap.
  • Multiple window functions : rectangle, triangle, Hanning, Hamming, Blackman.

Real-time Spectrum Analyser:
  • Realtime spectrum analyzer with hold function.
  • Selectable analyzer sources : input signal / effect signal / output signal.

Spectral Delay:
  • Individual delay with feedback for every single frequency band.
  • 10 delay points to define the delay line.
  • 10 feedback points to define the feedback line.
  • Different line styles : polygon / square.
  • Delay points can be quantized to sync the delay times to the song tempo.
  • Selectable sync tempo : external / internal.
  • Beat grid for quantize positions.
  • RESCUE switch to clear the feedback buffer.

Spectral Filter:
  • Individual gain parameter for every single frequency band.
  • 10 filter points to define the filter line.
  • Different line styles : polygon / square.
  • Filter force parameter for smooth or hard filter action.

Spectral Gate:
  • Individual noise gate for every single frequency band.
  • 10 gate points to define the gate line to adjust the gate thresholds.
  • Different line styles : polygon / square.
  • Global attack time and release time parameters.
  • Mono / stereo switch to link the gate (left / right) in 2 channel mode.

Spectral Shift:
  • Shift of frequency bands between analysis and synthesis (+/- 64 bands).
  • 3 LFOs to create 2-dimensional point movements.
  • Independent x- and y-axis parameters.
  • Snap function to lock the LFO start to a fixed song position.
  • LFOs can be synchronized to the song tempo (from 1/16 note up to 8 bars).
  • Learn Mode for easy modulation target assignment.
  • 5 modulation targets per LFO.

Help Function:
  • Information display for every parameter control.

Undo / Redo:
  • 50 step undo / redo for all point line parameter changes.

Parameter Automation:
  • Parameters can be automated by the host sequencer.

Pricing & Availability
Obelisk is now available for Windows (VST) and Mac OS X (VST & AU).
Demo versions are available.
