What Is The Idea Behind Cryogen?

Cryogen is a modular buffer effects processor designed to generate robotic artefacts and abstract musical malfunctions.

Cryogen features a fully modular drag & drop modulation matrix which makes it possible to bend the signal path to your will.

This versatile matrix adds a fresh dimension of possibilities to the plugin when used in conjunction with its four signal mixers and two mod multipliers, all of which are capable of combining audio and modulation signals.

Cryogen comes loaded with 140 factory presets from sound designers Ivo Ivanov, Thomas Hennebert, Nicholas Yochum, Daed and Alex Retsis.

Easily Generate Abstract Musical Malfunctions

Cryogen features dual buffer effects, dual multimode filters and dual bit crusher effects.

With the advent of its flexible architecture and fully modular drag & drop modulation matrix, Cryogen is capable of generating everything from subtle glitches to stunning signal mutations, making it an exciting creative tool for electronic musicians and sound designers.

Between its flexible routing matrix, multiple effects processors and extensive modulation options, Cryogen enables you to dial in vast variations of special effects. Cryogen takes buffer effects one step closer to the edge!

Cryogen’s LFOs feature optional 100X rate multipliers, making it possible to also use them as dirty tone generators within your patches.

In combination with the signal mixers, you can take these LFOs far beyond traditional modulation duties. Another one of Cryogen’s highlights is the ability to use incoming audio signals to modulate nearly every parameter.

On top of that, the convolving signal multipliers can intertwine audio signals with modulation signals in any combination. These unconventional features are the key to effects that would be impossible to achieve with more conservative plugins.

Inside Cryogen: How Does It Work?

Cryogen Plugin Overview

COLOR CODING: The 4 UI colors are designated to the following sections/functions:

  • BLUE: Effects Chain 1
  • GREEN: Effects Chain 2
  • YELLOW: Modulation
  • FUCHSIA: Modulation Assignments & Depth

INTERFACE:

Below each parameter knob, there are mod assignment and mod depth boxes. The mod assignment box makes it easy to see which source has been assigned as a modulator for a particular parameter.

You can drag & drop any module’s header to the desired mod assignment box in order to make quick modulation assignments without having to visit the modulation matrix.

EFFECTS PROCESSING

Cryogen features two effects processing chains. Each of the chains feature a Buffer Effect, a Multimode Filter and a Bit Crusher Effect.

By default, each chain processes the incoming signal in parallel with signals flowing from left to right and converging at the mixer before going to the master output. This path can be re-configured in various ways thanks to Cryogen’s modular architecture.

MODULATION

Complex modulation routing is at the heart of Cryogen. All key parameters can be modulated using the LFOs, signal mixers and signal multipliers. Cryogen’s LFOs feature optional 100X rate multipliers, making it possible to use them as dirty tone generators within your patches.

In combination with the signal mixers, you can take these LFO’s far beyond traditional modulation duties. Another one of Cryogen’s highlights is the ability to use incoming audio signals to modulate nearly every parameter.

On top of that, modulation multipliers can convolve audio signals with modulation signals in any combination. Their output can then be used as a modulation source for other parameters.

BUFFER MODULES

The buffers loop small portions of their input and can alter the pitch of the looped signal.

  • (SZ) SIZE: the length of the loop (from 1 Ms to 1000 Ms)
  • (RP) REPEATS: number of repetitions of a loop before sampling a new signal (1 to 128)
  • (RA) RATIO: speed & direction at which the loop is played back

FILTER MODULES:

  • (MRP) MORPH: morphs between 4 filter types (lowpass, bandpass, highpass, notch)
  • (CUT) CUTOFF: the cutoff frequency of the filter (20 Hz to 11000 Hz)
  • (RES) RESONANCE: the resonance (emphasis) at cutoff frequency

CRUSHER MODULES

  • (BIT) BIT DEPTH: the bit depth of the signal (1 to 16)
  • (RAT) SAMPLE RATE: the sample rate reduction ratio (1 to 64)
  • (MIX) MIXER: mixes between the input and the processed signal

OUTPUT MODULE

  • (D/W) DRY/WET: mixes the plugin input and the processed signal
  • (LVL) OUTPUT LEVEL: adjusts the gain of the processed signal

The output module also features a dynamic visualizer which reacts to the outgoing signal of the plugin.

LFO MODULES

  • WAVE – the waveform of the LFO: SIN, SQR, SUP, SDN, TRI, S&H
  • (RAT) RATE: the frequency (measured in cycles per second) of the LFO
  • SYNC: synchronizes the LFO to the host (DAW) clock
  • X100: the rate of the LFO will be multiplied by 100

MIXER MODULES

  • SOURCE MENUS: these menus let you select both inputs of the mixer. The upper menu corresponds to the left side of the MIX knob, while the lower menu corresponds to its right side
  • MIX: mixes between the 2 selected sources (0% to 100%)

MODULATION MULTIPLIER MODULES

The modulation multipliers let you convolve two signals (modulation and/or audio signals) in order to use the resulting signal to modulate another parameter. Mod Multiplier modules are especially useful in generating evolving modulation shapes.

They work in a similar way to to ring modulation, but in Cryogen they can also be used to create modulation shapes that are more complex than the default wave shapes generated by the LFOs.

MODULATION MATRIX

The drag & drop modulation matrix gives you an overview of all the available connections (audio and modulation) across the plugin.

This matrix enables you to make modulation assignments and also grants you access to the audio signal path so you can alter the way the plugin processes the input signal.

FOOTER

  • MIDI LEARN: assign a knob to a MIDI controller.
  • MIDI UNLEARN: unlearn a parameter assigned to a controller.
  • MIDI CLEAR: pressing this button will clear all MIDI assignments at once.
  • PROGRAM CHANGES: Cryogen will respond to MIDI program changes by triggering the corresponding presets according to their order in the preset menu.

DYNAMIC PARAMETER DISPLAY

The area behind the Cryogen logo doubles as a parameter value display. This section will switch dynamically to display the value of an affected parameter. Once a parameter is no longer being adjusted, the logo will reappear.

What People Think About 84% off “Cryogen” by Glitchmachines

  • "Cryogen has about 140 presets, most of which are excellent and make it ready to use straight away. I started using Cryogen in this way, exploring some of these great presets. I’ve found it works really well on drum beats as well as vocals and synth sounds, in fact it will happily process whatever sounds you want it to process. You really can do pretty much whatever you want which makes it such a great effect to use."
