Eventide and Newfangled Audio -Pendulate New Free Chaotic Synth Plugin


Eventide has released Pendulate, a freeware virtual synthesizer developed by Newfangled Audio. The company has also announced that the full version of the Pendulate plugin, called Generate, is scheduled for release on September 8th.

Pendulate is an innovative virtual monosynth that uses a new oscillator technology based on a double pendulum’s physics properties. It was developed by Newfangled Audio and you can download it for free from Eventide’s website after filling out a form.

Eventide’s chaotic synthesizer excels as a source of dark electronic pulses, glitchy bass tones, and synthetic soundscapes drizzled with static noises. Sure, you can use Pendulate to produce some more musical and mellow sounds, but dark and glitchy electronica is simply the nature of this beast.

The raw sound of the oscillators is shaped by the wavefolder section and the low-pass gate. According to the developers, this type of setup (an oscillator followed by a wavefolder and a low-pass gate) takes inspiration from the works of the legendary synth designer Don Buchla. As a matter of fact, the wavefolder circuit is based on the Buchla 259 waveform generator, and the gate mimics the Buchla 292 dual low-pass gate module.

To make things even more interesting, Pendulate offers MPE support and allows up to 169 simultaneous modulation routings. The modulation comes from external sources, a syncable LFO, and an ADSR envelope, all of which can connect to various synth engine parameters using virtual cables. These cables can remain visible at all times or hidden in the settings menu.

Here’s how the developers at Newfangled Audio describe the philosophy behind Pendulate’s modules and the synth’s underlying architecture:

Pendulate is a chaotic monosynth based on the physics of a double pendulum. What initially looks like randomness contains underlying patterns, interconnectedness, constant feedback loops, repetition, self-similarity, fractals, and self-organization.

When designing the Pendulate oscillator we took great care to bring out these underlying patterns. The result is an oscillator that can smoothly fade from a sine wave to total chaos, with an expanse of territory to explore in between.

Every parameter in Pendulate’s three modules can be modulated by an included Envelope Generator, LFO, or MIDI and MPE sources. The innovative modulation interface allows you to easily and quickly patch any combination of sources to any destination—creating sounds that are sure to make you move with them.

The software is available in VST, VST3, AU, and AAX plugin formats for 32-bit and 64-bit digital audio workstations on PC and Mac, and it doesn’t require iLok. To download your free copy of Pendulate, visit the promo page on Eventide’s website and fill out the form.
