Do you offer offline software activation?

Currently, we do not offer offline activation. An internet connection is only required during the activation process, not after the software is activated.

That looks like a very generous freebie!
The online activation requirement is tough for me.

So what does Rift do? :)

Thanks! We hope you enjoy it. We have a lot of fun using it in our own productions.

RIFT will be coming later this month, but we wanted to share just our filter module to introduce ourselves and let people know we exist :) - I can tell you this much, it's not a filter!

On the offline activation, we understand that can be an issue for some people and we'll be implementing an offline system.

In the meantime, the plus with our auth system is you can manage where your plugins are used within your user account on the website, and freely remove machines, making it incredibly easy to move our plugins between computers (as long as they can get online)

Thanks for the feedback!

An interesting and useful filter. It is quite similar in many aspects to the filter found in Matt Tytel's synthesizer "Vital" but without modulation sources, save MIDI note control over FC position, and manual control via your DAW's automation. Nice freebee.

Sounds nice, the low pass phaser is an interesting option, sounds great modulated over a pad.

Thanks.

Nice filter. Here's Rift Lite being abused by an acoustic drum mix and manual automation.

Thankyou for the freebie - I think Rift looks interesting but at the moment I am not enjoying the sound of this filter with high resonance, it breaks up too much and gets too boomy for me.

Yeah, ditto. It rings too much and lacks some kind of drive stage in the filter loop. Doesn't need to be fancy, even a simple soft clipper would do the trick, but beyond a certain amount of resonance currently i find it a bit unusable

Decent freebie though. I would guess this is somewhat based on the Z-Plane/Morpheus filters in the old E-Mu samplers and rompler/synth things?

Hey,

Thanks for checking us out and posting some feedback!

Rift Filter Lite is taken from our upcoming product Rift, which provides multiple stages of distortion/soft-clipping in a similar way to what you're describing. I really like the idea of adding an optional drive stage to RFL, and we'll try to get it into the next update. Thanks!

I haven't used the filters you mentioned, but they do look similar!

Best,
Ben from Minimal Audio

I'm glad you're enjoying it! LP Phaser is one of my favorite filter types in the plugin. It can sound very "liquid" to my ears.

Thanks for checking us out!

Is the full version going to have more morphing filter types? Please look at the Emu. There are tons of people who will snap this up, given more options for morphing.
