Influx is a modulated distortion / resonator

Called as an instant "Sonic Retox" engine, the resonator module (FLUX) goes thru a Low Pass and a Tube distortion. Flux resonator Note and Dry/Wet have their dedicated editors.

Influx lets you create new grooves from your current input. Selecting "WET ONLY" will output only the transformed part of the signal.
  • Flux Resonator: multi-point LFO Editor on resonator note.
  • Flux Chaos: Resonator realtime re-fuel with audio input.
  • Flux Center Note: Select the root note for the Flux Resonator, with optional MIDI control.
  • Flux Scale Snap: 38 automatic scale modes: Off / Octave / I-V / I-IV / I-IV-V / Tetratonic / Tetratonic minor / Tritonic / Major Pentatonic / Suspended Pentatonic / Blues Minor Pentatonic / Blues Major Pentatonic / Minor Pentatonic / Miyako-Bushi / Iwato / Hirajoshi / Insen / Whole Tone / Blues Common / Enigmatic / Persian / Ionian / Dorian / Phrygian / Lydian / Mixolydian / Aeolian / Locrian / Harmonic Minor / Melodic Minor / Phrygian 6 / Lydian Augmented / Lydian Dominant / Mixolydian b6 / Locrian 2 / Altered Min Scale / Harmonic Major / Chromatic.
  • Flux Stereo: adds stereo pitch shift between left and right Flux Resonator.
  • Flux LFO: controls Low Pass Filter.
  • LFO Rate: From 4 Bars to 16th, with polyrhythmic rate (i.e. 5th, 7th).
  • Low Pass Filter: can be controlled with Flux Resonator LFO.
  • 16 Waveshapers
  • Tube Distortion
  • Low Cut Filter: Remove low rumble from signal.
  • Gain: Sets post distortion gain, 48dB/+48dB, exponential.

  • FULL WET button, with extra strike animation.
  • Editor Tools: Smooth, Normalize, Flip, Chop, Roll, Pencils, snap modes, etc..

  • Preferences on OpenGL animations, MIDI Note, MIDI Thru.

When this thing was new, part of the kvr developer challenge 2021 (i think), and I tested it I was blown away. A completely new sound, parameters with unusual names. A super dynamic graphic representation of what's going on. I was like "wtf, did they invent a new dsp algorithm or where is this coming from out of a sudden??"

This is an amazing and modern electronic music effect. Sounds like electrical sparks or something. It is great and everyone that uses a synth needs this. Press play on your DAW so it runs in rhythm to the music. Can't say enough good things about this

This dll and vst files working at the beginning, later plugin disabling itself because there is new setup files on official webpage. You must get free licence key serial now. Need an update here. Btw it is 5 stars great plugin.

This is an incredible effect. Free or not, it sounds great and just adds that modern, futuristic sound. very fun to experiment with. I thought it didn't work until I realized I had to press play on my ableton cause it is in sync with the tempo, lol. After that is was great stuff

Been using this for a while and I'm blown away. I've been looking for a gritty / glitchy distortion plugin that matched this sound for so long. This is a must have for electronic musicians, there is so much you can do with it.

I had issues using it with my midi controller. It has some noticeable latency. No major problems that can't be solved with easy workarounds. But it's crazy that this plugin is free
