Blue Cat Audio PolyVibe
Classic Vibes and Beyond
Blue Cat's PolyVibe is a complete re-creation of vintage "vibe" pedals, based on original designs and taking them several steps further for the 21st century.
With a couple of twists and innovations, the plug-in can simulate many kinds of "vibes", chorus, phaser, rotary, or wah/vocal effects, while keeping this particular vintage flavor that is so typical to "vibe" pedals.
Thanks to these extensions, the plug-in is not only suitable for guitars, but for any other instrument, including the human voice.
Like the original "Uni-Vibe" pedal (a registered trademark of Dunlop Manufacturing, Inc.) played by Jimi Hendrix, David Gilmour, and many others, the PolyVibe plug-in gives you access to a wide range of vintage "vibe" tones, and much more.
Using the original filters designs as a starting point, the plug-in lets you control their shape and motion in details to create new modulation effects, with two extra modes.
It can also produce stereo vibe effects, while most pedals are still limited to mono these days.
You can of course synchronize the modulation with the host application, and adjust the feel of the oscillator with the "swing" control to fit the music.
Despite all these extra controls and options, it has never been so easy to find your own tone: the Tone Maps helps you explore existing presets and create new effects quickly.
