Superchord is a novel effect plugin based on multiple virtual strings that resonate in sympathy with the input audio material. The pitches of these strings can stay fixed, or can be played live with a MIDI keyboard, as an instrument.

Superchord can be used to radically alter sound and create complex, animated textures with an organic quality. It can also function as a special kind of reverberation to add a touch of ambience to your tracks.

Superchord opens new creative possibilities for musicians, producers and sound designers alike.

A wide range of applications:

  • Add virtual sympathetic strings to any instrument such as guitar, piano, etc.
  • Add a harmonic layer to rhythmic loops, keeping source dynamics.
  • Get inspired by mutating existing sounds into something new.
  • Create otherwordly special FX for sound design.

Tweaker's delight:

  • 12 string resonators with individual and global settings.
  • Assignable LFO and envelope follower.
  • Filter and saturation modules.
  • Dynamics model, controlling string energy characteristics.
  • String model parameters, controlling timbre and other qualities.
  • Instrument mode for live playing.

Pristine audio processing:

  • Optimized audio engine with 64-bit double precision path.
  • Sample accurate automation.
  • Glitch-free parameter changes.
  • Integrated mini-mixer with solo, mute and defeat.

Hands-on control:

  • Deep host integration with direct access to automation (AAX / VST3) and quick control learn (VST3).
  • Native Instruments NKS FX support for seamless integration with Komplete Kontrol and Maschine.

  • Coarse/fine control adjustment using modifier keys.
  • Mouse wheel support.
  • Convenience functions such as parameter reset, randomize and more through context menus.

Reactive user interface:

  • Scalable user interface with clean 2D vector design.
  • Preset browser with more than 50 factory presets included.
  • Context-aware interaction and help system.
  • Selection of graphic skins.
  • GPU accelerated graphics engine to maximize refresh rates and minimize CPU usage.
