Audio Damage released the next version of their discord stereo pitch shifter plugin, the new version is called DISCORD4. I did play around with it today and can report that the new UI makes sense and that the sound you get from this plugin is a good as expected from the fourth version of DISCORD, just with a better Interface.
DISCORD4 is available for new customers at $59 (USD) and for qualifying customer at $10 (USD) for an upgrade.
Features according to Audio Damage:
- Pitch Shifting: Discord4 contains a pair of shifters with three separate algorithms (Vintage, Clean, and Granular) for different styles of pitch shifting.
- Buffer Size Control: The P1 (Vintage) and P2 (Clean) algorithms have a Buffer Size control, from 32 to 2048 samples, for fine-tuning the pitch shifting effect.
- Delay: Tempo-synced or free-running delays with feedback, cross-feedback, and a sophisticated bandpass filter.
- Reverb: A simple stereo reverb is added to the feedback path, for “shimmer” effects and further sound exploration.
- Modulation: Two of our new FLFO (Flexible Low-Frequency Oscillator) with tempo sync and an arbitrary waveform, capable of a nearly infinite number of modulation shapes using only three controls.
- True Stereo Operation: Discord4 has a true stereo signal path, with entirely independent control over each side, finishing with panorama settings for stereo width.
- MIDI Note Control: Six octaves of pitch-shifting can be controlled with MIDI note input.
- All-New GUI: Vector-based resizable user interface.
- Presets: Cross-platform XML-based preset manager.
New in Version 4.0:
- A new reverb processor
- Refinements to the granular processor, providing overall improvements to the sound quality and a more useful Chaos control
- Redesigned LFOs with a variety of shaping controls and animated displays
- Output panorama controls for adjusting the stereo width of Discord’s output
- A completely new, resizable user interface, appropriate to contemporary display technologies
- Discord is now compatible with AAX and VST3 hosts
- Presets use a cross-platform XML-based file format
- Discord is built with up-to-date code libraries for better host compatibility and future-proofing
