Minimal Audio has pulled the feedback engine from its awesome Rift distortion plug-in and released it for FREE as Rift Feedback Lite. The plug-in lets you explore the musical capabilities of feedback. You can go wild with resonators, comb filters and delays, and even play it like an instrument. Get it while it’s free!
Get Minimal Audio Rift Feedback Lite for FREE
Rift’s unique morphing filter is already available separately as Rift Filter Lite. It was free initially, but now costs USD 49. So it’s great news that another processor from Rift is now available for free: Rift Feedback Lite.
According to Minimal Audio, Rift Feedback Lite features a physical modeling feedback engine that includes tuned resonators, comb filters and various synced delays. You can adjust the time, spread, and of course feedback, and there’s a pair of high pass and low pass filters for additional tone shaping. A choice of stereo spread and ping pong modes allows for interesting stereo effects.
The developer says that the feedback can be tuned to the key of your track using preset scales, out of which you can pick the desired notes. The plug-in even has a MIDI input that allows you to play the feedback like an instrument and create melodic effects.
Price and compatibility
Minimal Audio Rift Feedback Lite is now available for free from the developer’s website. It looks like it’ll eventually become a paid plug-in for USD 29, so it’s probably a good idea to grab it while it’s free.
The plug-in runs on macOS 10.9 or higher and Windows 10 in AU, VST, VST3 and AAX formats.
