Back in December 2016 Infected Mushroom showed off their latest collaboration with Polyverse, Manipulator. It was in BETA back then... and today it's available to buy as version 1!
Manipulator is designed as a new type of vocal transformer. Of course, you don't have to use it only on vocals, other instruments can be processed too. Manipulator alters the pitch and timbre of your voice using "unique grain algorithms". So, if you enjoy warping and manipulating sounds beyond the recognizable, but still making them usable it looks like Manipulator is for you.
We think Manipulator looks and sounds like a lot of fun indeed. Check out the video below for an overview of the plug-in's settings and really cool examples.

- Alter timbre and pitch of vocals and instruments
- 10 Different effects with endless combinations
