Drift is a unique effects processor based on two independent Lorenz chaos systems. These are three-dimensional oscillators widely used by scientists and engineers to model convection in liquids and gases. Here, these random but smooth signals are used to modulate spectral effects, sound level and stereo pan, giving them the dynamic characteristics of wind gusts, air turbulence or rising water bubbles.
All of Drift’s functionality is neatly presented by an intuitive interface wholly built with colour-coded graphics. It features two- dimensional representations of the chaos systems as well as subtle animations for all controls, adding up to a pleasant, organic experience. Together with precise parameter calibration, this makes Drift a musical, productive and always enjoyable tool.
Drift works with Logic, GarageBand, Live, MainStage, ReNoise, Reaper, Studio One, Digital Performer, Tracktion and other software that supports Audio Unit effect plugins. It comes in 32/64 bit format for Intel Macs running OS X 10.6 or later, and supports Retina screen resolution.
Drift costs $29 and it’s a free upgrade to existing users.
