The Sonic Charge Echobode in VST and AU formats
Echobode, the delay and frequency shifter that Echobode initially launched on Reason is now available in VST and AU formats for Mac and Windows.
Echobode is now available on Mac OS X and Windows in VST and AU plug-in formats, as well as a Rack Extension for Reason.
The plug-in combines a delay effect to a frequency shifter inspired by Harald Bode’s model and that allows for suppression on 40 Hz to 20 kHz range. The latter can be reduced thanks to the Sideband Mix control and you can use it to create amplitude or ring modulation for instance.
Echobode features an adjustable “anti-reflexion” stage that allows for removing “negative” frequencies as well as those that are shifted above half of the sample rate (Nyquist).
The delay time can be tempo-synced or modulated to create chorus effects and a “Smear” section in the feedback loop allows for producing reverb-like effects.
Echobode also features an LFO with sine, saw, square and random waveforms for shift amount, phase reverse, low-pass filter or delay time modulation. It can also be tempo-synced and thanks to a dedicated stereo switch, it is possible to generate reverse modulation in the right channel.
Last, a dedicated MIDI mode allows for listening the MIDI input and change the shifting amount according to the received MIDI notes.
Echobode VST/AU is available for $44 and you can download a trial version from soniccharge.com.
