With a whole raft of innovative virtual instruments and effects plugins under their belt, DSP whizzkids AudioThing have proven themselves to be one of the most prolific and reliable software developers around today. They’ve already provided readers with the hotter-than-hot ValveFilter CM, and the chiptune-tastic miniBit CM synth, and now it’s time for a third excellent AudioThing plugin.
Enter The Orb CM, an other-worldly filter effect (VST, AU) that’s totally different to
your run-of-the-mill low- or high-pass filter. The plugin uses a bank of three band-pass filters to emulate the unique sonic resonances (ie, formants) imparted by the human mouth and vocal tract. By dragging the centre dot around the plugin’s main central ‘orb’, and dividing it into five different vowel settings, you can make any signal ‘talk’ in a distinctive, synthetic way – perfect for anything from subtle modulation and motion through to creative sound design. Check out our tutorial and watch the accompanying video to get to grips with this futuristic filter.
