Fugue State Audio Spectral Destroyer free audio-mangling/FSU plugin 0 (0)


Spectral Destroyer is an audio-mangling/FSU plugin designed around spectral processing. It uses pitch-shifting and delay to do what it does, but isn’t really designed to be either of those things. It is designed more for audio destruction and feedback effects.


Fugue State Audio Shapeulator free plugin synth VSTI3 0 (0)



Shapeulator is essentially the product of a modular patching session, and a desire to have the core setup used available for further sound design fun. At the most basic level, it is a subtractive synthesizer, with some additional features that make it especially useful for certain types of pads, fx sounds, and synthetic percussion.

The main features that separate Shapeulator from other analog-style subtractive synths are the waveshaper oscillator and resonator. The waveshaper oscillator is a fairly standard VA osc with a waveshaper that is controlled by another oscillator. This second oscillator can be modulated independently, and creates a sound something like amplitude modulation. The resonator is a stereo bank of tuned delays with feedback, which can also be modulated.


FourHead by Fugue State Audio 0 (0)

FourHead is an experimental granulator effect, despite not really being a delay or a granulator, though it lives in that realm.
It is based on an audio buffer which constantly records the input in chunks. This buffer is then read by four “play heads” which play it back as looped segments.
The length of the chunk to be played back is set independently from the length of the recorded buffer, and the pitch and start offset for each “head” can be modulated (the playback on 3 of the 4 heads can also be delayed), creating odd retriggering arpeggiations and granular-style swarms of sound.
The output can also be fed back to the record buffer for endless noisy fun.
