Using their granular synthesis technology, a single voice can be transformed into a string ensemble or a choir with capabilities to apply movement, timing, and pitch differences to the layers, mimicking the sound of multiple musicians playing together.

“From music to sound design, from stereo to Dolby Atmos, Density is a plugin that you definitely want in your toolset,” Sound Particles said.

There are three modes of use available: Basic, Detune, and Multipitch.

Basic mode allows you to use the plugin quickly, without needing any additional experience, with quality results. With just a few controls, you can create small or large ensembles from a single sound.

Detune mode is perfect to create the feeling of various layers. The Detune Mode has more advanced controls that allow you to fine-tune some parameters related to the generation of grains and the movement of the voices.

Pitch mode creates multiple groups of voices with individual controls for pitch, number of voices, and gain, allowing harmonisation like a choir – and giving you the most realistic – and most creative results.

In Detune and Multipitch mode, two assignable parameters can be controlled at the same time with XY Pads, while there a range of other tools available like Top View, which provides a circular visual representation of your layers in a 3D space.

The plugin is available in AAX Native, VST3, AU and AUv3 formats, and is Supported on Windows 10 or above, as well as macOS 10.3 or above.
