Cableguys have released HalfTime, a new plugin 100% dedicated to half-speed effects, in use by Armin van Buuren, David Guetta, members of 808 Mafia, The Chemical Brothers and more.
HalfTime transforms any audio into a dark, downtempo version of itself, giving your tracks huge mood and atmosphere. Lead synths mutate into heavyweight EDM bass monsters. Plinky piano lines become haunting trap melodies. Percussion thickens, expanding to reveal new rhythmic possibilities.
Just add the plugin for an instant half-speed effect with zero setup. Or go in deep with powerful creative controls. HalfTime works on loops, virtual instruments or even live audio input, inspiring you in seconds.
The hands-on Power button makes it easy to fit HalfTime into your tracks — create a rapid switch or sink in slowly with smooth fades up to 16 bars.
Three speed Modes give you classic half-speed, tight harmonies and shuffling swing rhythms, and drugged-out quad-time playback. Adjustable Loop length allows multi-bar slow-downs, funky syncopations and totally new grooves.
Slow only the lows, mids or highs with the Band split — generate deep bass movement, fatten midrange percussion, or flip your top-end on its head.
HalfTime is €10/$12 and is available for Windows and Mac OS X, in 32- and 64-bit, for VST and AU. For a limited time HalfTime is free to existing and new TimeShaper owners. Or buy HalfTime and get €10/$12 off any future TimeShaper upgrade.
