Cycling '74 announces Hipno
20th January 2005

Cycling '74 today announced Hipno v1.0, a new suite of over forty effects and instrument plug-ins for VST, Audio Units and RTAS Mac OS X host applications. Designed by ElectroTap, this package features an irresistible mix of granular, spectral, and filter/delay-based plug-ins featuring the unique Hipnoscope user interface. Also included in the package is an amazing set of processors that utilize live video input as a control source, and a new set of modulator plug-ins sure to captivate both the novice and long-time users of Cycling '74's Pluggo and Mode plug-in collections.

Some highlights of the Hipno collection include:

In addition to the host-sync capabilities and the ability to use Cycling '74's modulator plug-ins for control, many of the Hipno plug-ins offer the unique Hipnoscope interface to create, control, and explore complex preset morphs and interpolations with a flick of the wrist. While immensely satisfying on its own, the Hipno collection also extends the visionary signal processing and instrumental possibilities of the Pluggo and Mode plug-in collections.

Hipno has a suggested retail price of US$199 and is will be available for purchase in the first quarter of 2005 from Cycling '74 or its retail dealers.

A Windows XP version of the Hipno collection will be available later in 2005.
