CatStretch by Max for Cats
Explore new sonic worlds.
CatStretch is a 6-voice polyphonic time-stretching sample playback instrument. It lets you 'freeze' a sonic character at a specified position and play it back chromatically with MIDI notes.
CatStretch is specially tailored for extreme sonic manipulations in the spectral and time domain. You can adjust the position of a sample with the 'Scrub' dial. It uses a phase vocoder to achieve time stretching up to total time freeze. That includes reverse stretching.
Sculpt your samples in new and unheard ways.
2 assignable Matrix LFO's, 3 Envelopes, Effects and a Multimode filter. These features will help you to further shape and design exciting new soundscapes.
Explore the CatStretch Presets and drag your own samples on the display to play them! CatStretch features a small but dedicated sound library for its presets.
Spex: This tab contains a Spectral Filter where you draw your own filter shape. Additionally, there are 3 default presets to choose from.
Mod: Here you can find the 2 LFOs and the Modulation Matrix. Each LFO offers 7 different wave shapes and they can be switched from beat sync to free mode.
FX: Access 3 different effects: a Granular effect, Chorus and a Reverb for adding depth and texture to your sound.
