Malfunction is a "circuit-bent" filter - a filter with intentionally broken connections and erroneous math that produces very special, hissy and screaming distortion. To tame this dramatic effect the plugin includes a low-pass pre-filter with a booster, as well as an output gate followed by a multi-mode filter. Malfunction also has two highly versatile tempo-synchronized modulation generators routed into the circuit-bent and the output filters for intricate morphing and pulsations: they feature many different waveforms including our special "broken triangle" and "staircase". Plus, these modulators also offer variable chaos control which gradually adds random, never-repeating accents on each individual waveform cycle.

Malfunction has an intuitive user interface built with Sinevibes trademark color-coded, animated graphics and highly legible shapes and text. Thanks to carefully tuned parameters, superb efficiency and stability, Malfunction is a deeply creative tool that is also very enjoyable day to day.

Sound engine:

  • Unique "circuit-bent" filter algorithm producing thick, hissy and screaming distortion.
  • Multi-mode state-variable filter with 8 algorithms for detailed output spectrum shaping.
  • Two modulation generators with 10 waveforms and variable chaos.
  • Transport sync with support for tempo and time signature changes.

User interface:

  • Color-coded controls with lightly animated transitions.
  • Fully hardware-accelerated rendering with support for Retina screen resolution.


  • Works with any application that supports Audio Unit effect plugins.
  • Supports OS X 10.6 or later running on 32 or 64-bit Intel Macs.
