Sample Logic released Animation Station, a secret tool for creating active motion with any MIDI-enabled virtual, or real world instrument. Despite the intricacies of the scripting under the hood, Sample Logic has designed a straightforward approach to conjure innovative magic without layers of complexity. This isn’t just your run-of-the-mill arpeggiator – No siree! This plugin has numerous customizable functions and performance parameters that come together to create a sequencer without borders. Set the length and attributes of each step independently, or select from hundreds of unique animation presets. These can all be independently randomized, generating new patterns on the fly. Shuffle the steps, or grab a single step and move it around within the sequence. In addition to the real-time performance engine, ANIMATION STATION is designed with MIDI drag and drop technology. Export MIDI from an active instance of the plugin and apply it to other instrument tracks in a DAW for further tweaking.
Whether you need a quick and easy way to create memorable melodies, or you just want to glitch the night away, ANIMATION STATION is for you. With tight deadlines and demanding clients, dialing in a perfect pattern quickly can be a life-saver and this rapidly robust plugin makes that happen! Take your favorite virtual instrument, synth, drum machine, sample library, or even vintage hardware, then add ANIMATION STATION as a MIDI effect – you’ll hear the incredible transformations instantly. This plugin is designed to generate limitless musical phrases with minimal effort. Simply play a few notes and cycle through the presets to find your perfect motion. ANIMATION STATION is an intuitive and dynamic one-stop solution for creating awesome arpeggio patterns with a little stutter and glitch on the side. The included presets offer a world with limitless possibilities, from simple standard arps to extreme experimental patterns and everything in between. For songwriting inspiration, try the melodic and chordal sequences, or drum machine style patterns for kicking your beats up a notch, or even glitchy stutters that would previously have taken forever to create using standard MIDI programming.
