Homegrown Sounds announces SideTrack VST/AU Public Beta & Group Buy

Homegrown Sounds

Homegrown Sounds has announced the Public Beta release of SideTrack, a new VST/AU instrument plugin for macOS and Windows, along with a Group Buy that will be running for the next three months with a mixture of products developed during the group buy as well as some Kontakt Instruments and Samples.


Mod Matrix
Modulation Matrix

SideTrack is a VST/AU Instrument for Windows/Mac. It has 2 sample based Oscillators with drag & drop support for WAVs. The Oscillators support up to 9x Unison, there is a dual filter, Bit Crusher, Saturation and Decimator per voice. It has a large 14 x 48 Modulation Matrix with hardwired connections, an FX Section with Flanger/Chorus, Phaser, Reverb & Delay/Looper. It also has an advanced theme system based on assets and colours.

Each Oscillator has a selection of Play Modes including Poly with cross faded loop, single cycle with PWM, an Oscillator section (Triangle, Saw, Square & Sub with various FM, RM & Sync modes).

Chromatic Split Mode
Chromatic Split Mode

It also has some unique Play Modes such as Chromatic Split, which divides a WAV into x slices and the maps the slices across the keys chromatically. The slices have various volume modes which can shape with Attack/Decay or they can be cross faded into seamless loops. This can make some fascinating instruments depending on the source material.

Sample Chain Mode
Sample Chain Mode

Another mode is Octatrack Sample Chain import or CUE Meta sliced WAVs, these are mapped across the keys either as a Kit or mapped chromatically across the keys with a knob to control the currently playing slice. This can be modulated.

It is available as a Public Beta for the next few releases so people can try it out, there is still work to do on implementing features but it's fully functional.
