Unfiltered Audio has returned with their most powerful plugin yet. BYOME ("Build Your Own Modular Effect") combines Unfiltered's endless modulation options with a collection of over 40 effect modules. Each effect has been meticulously engineered and tested for maximum impact without sacrificing usability.

Are you looking for a reverb to set your tracks apart? Check out Deep Reverb, a massive atmospheric goldmine with infinite echoes, custom tuned to make your synths sound epic. Want something more experimental? For the first time outside of the Rack Extension format, Unfiltered's classic Renoun Reverb is back, a modulated reverb that can cleanly morph between classic rooms and impossible geometries. Want even more? The Lofi Reverb module is inspired by the classic recordings of computer music pioneers and features ten separate reverb algorithms!

Many of Unfiltered Audio's legendary algorithms are represented here, from Sandman Pro's Instant Delay to Fault's Frequency Shifter. There are many new algorithms as well, including a powerful Phaser with up to 48 stages and variable harmonic all-pass tuning, a massive Granulator with up to +/- 4 octaves of pitch shifting and deep time shifting, and a Resonator Bank with four parallel comb filters for making any material harmonic.

BYOME isn't only for sound designers and musicians. It's an incredibly versatile mixing tool as well! Check out the Stereo Image module, a collection of eight classic mixing tricks with simplified controls (including a quick button to check what a mono mixdown would sound like). These algorithms include "Micro Pitch," a method for subtly pitch shifting both channels, "Micro Delay," "Mid/Side EQ," or the wild "Rotation," which maps your mix to an imaginary circle and spins it around in space. Need a Dynamics effect? Choose between the quick Auto Compressor, the deeper Compressor, the purpose-built Limiter, and the popular Noise Gate from G8. The Dynamics effects are compatible with external sidechains as well. We've also included a 3-Band EQ with a unique "Unity Gain" feature and a Panner with multiple pan laws. Want a deep Auto-Panner? Simply hook up the Panner to our incredible modulation system.

Speaking of the modulation system, we've added many new features and modules. For starters, the Input Follower can either monitor the main input or an external sidechain. Have you ever wanted to make a reverb that changes sizes in response to a kick? Now you can. We've extracted our critically-acclaimed analysis tools from our compressor, Zip, and turned it into the Spectral Follower module. Instead of only listening to a signal's amplitude, you can generate an envelope follower from features like Brightness and Noisiness.

To get you started, BYOME includes a massive library of over 400 presets spanning a number of genres and techniques. For the more experimentally minded, Unfiltered Audio has partnered with Ivo Ivanov of Glitchmachines for the creation of 70 cutting-edge presets designed for the production of futuristic drums and percussion.

Unfiltered Audio has created their masterpiece.
