Moodal is an audio plugin that modelizes objects and spaces to be excited by the sounds you will run through it.
Make your snare deeper, or change it to a bottle. Send your voice through a phone, or slide it on a string. Give your guitar a new soundboard, or throw some notes over a plate and quickly create rich textures.
Moodal let you transform your sound in a lively and refreshing way.
At the heart of Moodal is a one-of-a-kind resonance engine. Its underlying thousand resonant filters make Moodal capable to replicate realistic objects such as strings or plates, but also to simulate reverberant spaces such as rooms and halls that require a high modal density.
Moodal's controls have been designed to let you sculpt your sound deeply yet easily.
The user interface, including 3 editable curves, allows you to quickly set up the resonators properties over the whole frequency range and to create unique timbres within seconds.
Sound Examples :
Moodal is for you if you are seriously into resonances. It's the only plugin i am aware of where you can experience smoothly all kind of resonances from a single frequency up to a full lush reverberation- This is possible because it can have up to 1000 single resonances!
It's revealing a fundamental thing in nature, I had some great learning insights.
However, for a practical tool I find it difficult to control single resonances- You have an MSEG/ADSR Curve to influence the resonance volume but that's it- the single positions cannot be controlled and that limits it's usage. There is however a kind of a "spread" parameter controlling the distance between the single frequencies and you can achive from bell to metall kind of sounds with it.
It's missing keytracking, but in Bitwig I can add this from externally, so that is possible to add with some clever tools around it.
The presets are okay-ish and probably strong in the reverb section, but I was looking more for a harmonics influencing options (where you deal with single frequences and not with hundreds of frequencies. CPU Footprint is quite light, considering the many resonances it can controll.
Overall, not that much control on detail, what limits its usage and not per se musical but still a great experimentation and learning tool and unique in the market with this approach, and in combination with other tools that do the EQ analytics and something providing key tracking it can be used for building instruments in the direction of physical modelling- great toy for sounddesigners!
I think if I would have some way to get IR Files from cabinets etc into the presets, It would be a fantastique resonator body- that is not possible.
