London-based FXpansion have released a new plug-in billed as a ‘creative delay and diffusion’ effect. The plug-in lets you modulate almost all of its parameters with LFOs, step-sequencers and envelope followers. For more information from the plug-in’s makers, read on:
Press Release: FXpansion is proud to present Bloom, a creative delay effect plugin with additional diffusion network, effects, advanced modulation and much more. Bloom's varied delay modes and lush diffusion reverb instantly introduce new textures and spaces to your productions. Dig a little deeper to discover new ways of using delay for sound design.
At Bloom's core is a stereo delay line switchable between analogue BBD, tape and digital models, with a lush diffusion reverb algorithm providing stunning spaciousness and dimension. With 3 switchable routings for the diffusor and the effect section containing filtering, chorus, frequency shifting and more, an extremely wide variety of effects are possible. Other highlights include reverse, ping-pong and freeze functions.
Bloom's TransMod modulation system lets you modulate almost all its parameters with a variety of sources - built-in step-sequencers, LFOs, envelope follower and more. Additional MIDI-derived sources let you change the delay time per note or vary the feedback amount with note velocity. The plugin also includes an internal MIDI learn system for tweaking parameters live, turning Bloom into a versatile performance effect.
