Brandulator 2.0
VST2 and VST3 version


Freeware VST Plugin Brandulator is a complex sound processor that allows you to get quite interesting combined effects - comb filters, trance gate, vocoder, wah-wah, various types of modulation (chorus, flanger, phaser, ring, etc.). The work of this plugin is based on splitting the original signal into uniform intervals, in accordance with the tempo of the musical composition, to each of which a certain type of processing can be applied.

To expand the functionality of the plug-in, there are three individual channels of sound processing, with adjustable volume and panning, which allows you to create a realistic stereo sound picture. Each channel has 16 pairs of mode / key controls called steps. It is possible to set the parameters of the steps both individually and in a group method. Also, this can be done both in manual and in automatic mode, in accordance with the required harmonic law, of which there are about three hundred different scales in the plugin's database.

Thanks for the update. I was a fan of the original, this looks to be a worthy update.
Nice video also.

The old version was written in the era of Windows XP in Delphi and contained inaccuracies in the work. Repeatedly I had to receive bug reports from Windows 10 users.
Now the strategy has changed, I develop all plugins in C++, and the code of the old ones has to be ported from other programming languages.

Is this similar concept to that old AdrenaLinn plugin modeled after the hardware?

That would be sweet, as i think dev stopped on that and its only 32bit

Downloaded Brandulator today and spent some time playing around with it. Really impressed. Its easy to get great sounds and sequences. Lots of very usable presets too.

In fact, the concept of such a device was born to me a very long time ago, about thirty years ago. :wink:
In 1993, I made a hardware device ZLooper, which I then implemented as a plugin in the mid-2000s.

After there was the first version of the Brandulator:

Yeah, I ran a simple drum loop through it and ended up with a cool counter melody, added some delays and found myself with a neat 'maximalist' ambient piece. :)

Thanks Vasyan.

Look forward to trying this. I love stuff like this. I used to do shows where I’d load up an Electrix Repeater and then process them with an Adrenalinn. That rig is long gone but this could be just the thing.

Super impressed with the demo vid. Will definitely try this plugin in my music. :tu:

BTW, I'd really love to see your original hardware effect, but the img didn't show. Could you try again? (Small-size imgs can be uploaded to KVR.)

Thanks for your generosity, giving it away for free (will donate through Paypal if I use it)!

Hi SparkySpark! The hardware effect was made as an experimental model in 1993, when Stone Voices was part of Sovtek (a subsidiary of Electro-Harmonix), but there was only one channel and performed a purely Comb + function. Since the company was located on the territory of a military plant, shooting photos was prohibited, so there are no photos. This device was never launched into mass production.

Wow, what a story! (I thought there was supposed to be a photo in your above post, as it has a broken-image icon.)

Good luck with future development. :tu:
