FKFX has released Influx, a free sequenced resonator distortion plugin for macOS and Windows for this year’s KVR Developer Challenge. Some will remember the Obvious Filter plugin that the developer is offering also as a free download.
Influx merges a resonator, a lowpass filter, and a multi-algorithm tube distortion in a new versatile plugin.
Influx is described as a sonic retox engine that offers a sequenced resonator, a lowpass filter, and a tube resonator. The resonator includes dedicated advanced note and dry/wet editors where you can create entire note sequences and modulation curves. These are fully-featured and gives you precise control over every step.
There is also a scale snap for automatic scale modes, a stereo pitch shifter, and a chaos functionality that re-fuel in real-time the resonator with an audio input. A perfect tool if you like more crazy results. The flux section also hosts an LFO with polyrhythmic rates that controls the lowpass filter, the second element of this plugin. You can control it manually with the low cut filter parameters or with the Flux resonator LFO.
From the filter, it goes into a tube distortion with 16 different waveshapers and gain parameters that sets the post distortion gain. T
The plugin ships with 82 factory presets. You can download 128 extra presets for free from the Heat Audio facebook page, so you have in total 210 presets right away to check out. Like Obvious Filter, Influx also has a very high-quality, glossy GUI that can be used well on 4K screens.
FKFX Influx is available for free as part of this year’s KVR Audio Developer Challenge (2021). The plugin runs as a VST3 & AU plugin on macOS and Windows. Besides the challenge, please support the developers on Patreon if you enjoy the play.
