GrainSpace

Reviewed By Former [all]
June 25th, 2021
Version reviewed: 1 on Windows

I personally love it, and keep returning for it whenever I need an "grainy" effect- it has beautifull, lush, stuttery, tonal grain presets- not too many, not too few, really a great selection and diversity. Also not CPU Intense. Tweaking is not that easy, somehow, I never got my head around it, even if everything is clearly labelled and all knobs are visible. But I am very happy with the given presets- for the price, one of the best grain VST on the market, if you just search something you can slap in your track and try out a few creative, musical options fast that are not too glitchy (like with most grain vsts).

Moodal

Reviewed By Former [all]

Version reviewed: newest on Windows

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.
