REALIZER is a transient based random value generator for parameters.

Great for static synths, samples, one-shot or multi-layered drums, fake doubled vocals and even recreate broken cassette player! It's not limited. Your imagination is the only limit!

It has 5 randomized parameter. Gain, Transient, HPF, LPF and Pitch. Volume is standart output volume control. Not randomization. Simply, each parameter has its own range but not static. Always, triggered with random values by transients.

You can use each knob to set parameter "intensity". So, you will be able to keep random values between "unknown" range. For example, if you set gain knob to %20, you will get unknown but narrow range. Same for others.
  • 5 randomized parameters triggered by transient.
  • Gain, Transient, HPF, LPF and Pitch.
  • Each knob will set range for parameters. Narrow to wide.
  • Volume knob is simple output knob.
  • Touchscreen support.
  • Resizable interface. Simple "Bottom Right Corner Handle" to resize. 50% to 200%.

It's free, do the job. Yes, it could be improved. But it's a nice tool for more organic feeling. Ps: Sometimes I have a overdub of the sound, it's a bug, should be corrected in the future

I find the idea in principle good, but not the realization. This plugin urgently needs a manual, which explains more detailed, what happens in which configuration. Tried a lot of different settings, but I hardly heard any differences with different gain, hpf, lpf settings, on the other hand pitch seems to work much too extreme, even low settings affect the sound so intense, that the detuned tones practically become unusable in combination with other tracks. Also the lettering of the on/off switch seems to be wrong, in my world I/0 means, that I is on and 0 is off, here it seems to work reverse. As it is, for me not really usable. I did not notice any positive improvements with electric guitars, with my favorite synthesizers (Taurus, MiniMoog, ARP-2600) or with my Hang and frame drum plugins, sorry. As it is, this plugin rather is like throwing dices, sometimes you‘re lucky, sometimes not, but this is not really, what I expect from a plugin. But finally the effect is so minimal, that it hardly will change much, even less any musical quality or message seriously. The other aspect is, if I need such a plugin, to improve another one, maybe using the other one generally is a mistake. The market is full of excellently sounding plugins, so it hardly makes any sense to me to „improve“ bad sounding plugins, if there are more than enough better sounding alternatives available. If you want to „improve“ a bad sounding tube amp plugin, you also will hardly get a better sound, if you place a transistor based pedal in front. Same here, just use better sounding plugins, and you do not need this one at all!

Great for humanizing synth riffs and arps! Try it on any Karplus synth, for example and you will get humanized arps. Great for Detroit techno vibes as well - you can get humanized sound with this old-school vinyl/analogue tube feeling. I have also tested 'Realizer' on drum breaks - you can crank out nice pitched/filtered drum transitions with this plugin. I have tested Realizer in FL Studio 20 - for a reason unknown, this plugin got unrecognized in my freeware Waveform 12 (by Tracktion) - quite a strange occurrence, because usually all the plugins by Analog Obsession work flawlessly in Waveform 12.

This doesn't feel quite ready yet... It's usable, but I would like more control over what it's actually doing. Another gripe is that it seems that if you have 2 or more instances, they work "in tandem", i.e. they do the same random things at the same time, so they are random, but not "mutually random". This makes it a lot less useful for e.g. randomizing multiple tracks in parallel.
