Midnite Expanded | Hybrid Guitar Atmospheres
The Edge of Creativity
Enter the world of Midnite, where granular textures meet intense overtones for an unparalleled musical experience and craft hybrid, heavy-granular, overdriven sounds. As a powerful multi-layer sound designer instrument with 5 studio-grade DSP effects, Midnite empowers you to shape your sounds like never before. Inspired by iconic video game scores and ambient and videogame classics like Boards of Canada, Fallout, Borderlands, and many more. It comes in a VST3, AU, and AXX plugin for Mac and Windows.
Midnite in Action
The Sound Design Powerhouse
Midnite is your passport to the boundary where today meets tomorrow. It boasts a robust 5-module multi-layer engine, analog-modeled DSP effects, Smart Randomizers, and more. Despite housing over 200 parameters, its clean interface allows you to forge rich atmospheres, keys, leads, drones, and complex pulses effortlessly. Midnite is more than a virtual instrument – it’s an exploration beyond mere electric guitar or post-apocalyptic tones.
Shaping Tomorrow: Extensive DSP Effects
With Midnite, you get four distinct DSP modules: Overdrive, Dimension, Lusher, and Vintage Delay, further augmented by analog-modeled multimode filters and a master glue compressor. Experience the breadth of overdrive, from subtle saturation to fierce distortion, the harmonic richness of our dual granular engines from Lusher and the depths of the unique Juno-inspired chorus: Dimension.
The Sounds of Midnite
Crafting the Future: Meticulously Created Sounds
Featuring over 20 unique sound sources and 120 artist presets, Midnite invites you to sculpt and blend unparalleled sonic landscapes. We meticulously captured three electric guitars with an expansive effect board (with Electro-Harmonix Superego+, Pro Co Rat, Collision Devices Black Hole Symmetry, Meris Polymoon and more) to ensure unmatched quality.
Three Worlds in One: Preset Libraries
Midnite Expanded offers two primary preset libraries, each a world of creativity. “Midnite Core” provides 80 diverse presets across genres, while “Midnite Overdrive” accentuates distort sounds and pulses with 40 presets. But it does not stop there, as an expanded version exclusive, this version also contains the “Lo-fi Realm” preset pack.
Your Midnight Canvas: Tailored Visual Experience
Choose your look with 3 skins that bring the “Midnite” experience to life: the classic “Midnight Core,” the futuristic “Poly Drive,” (inspired by Polyscape) and the neon-light-inspired “Night Drive.”
Behind the Sounds of Midnite
Midnite’s sound sources were created in collaboration with UK-based Italian composer and sound designer, Alessandro Mastroianni (BBC Radio 4, Prodigal, Red Winter and more) from Sonora Cinematic.
Expanded version exclusive: Lo-fi Realm
Dive into the world of lo-fi with our “Lo-fi Realm” preset expansion pack. This set is carefully crafted with a focus on lo-fi hip-hop sounds, offering 40 finely-tuned presets. This collection encompasses pads, keys, leads, bass and more.
