Phonolyth (Yuri Turov) releases Velvet Machine for macOS and Windows


Phonolyth has announced the release of the Velvet Machine effect plugin for macOS (AU / VST3) and Windows (VST3), previously available only for iOS (AUv3). The Mac version is also a Universal 2 Binary, meaning it runs natively on both Intel and Apple Silicon.

Velvet Machine is a sonic texture generator / blur / non-linear reverb effect based on real-time convolution with enveloped velvet noise. It's designed to:

  • Stretch and blur out even short sounds to lengths of up to 10 seconds.
  • Produce reverb-like textures with flexible volume envelope (including reverse, fading in and out, pulsating etc.).
  • Work as a variable density random multi-tap delay (bordering on granular-like sounds).


  • Flexible volume envelope with arbitrary number of segments and curvature.
  • Effect time ranging from 50 ms to 10 s.
  • Response density adjustable from 1 to 2000 repeats per second.
  • Predelay up to 1 s.
  • Host tempo sync for time and predelay.
  • High cut and low cut filters for the effected signal.
  • Mix adjustable from 100% dry to 100% wet with no dry signal.
  • Mix Lock to switch presets while keeping the dry/wet mix constant.
  • Fully resizable vector-based UI.
  • Cross-platform preset format.

Intro Price: $16 until June 1st 2021 (Reg. $32).

The iOS version is also on sale: $3.99 (Reg. $7.99).
