Sinevibes developer Artemiy Pavlov has done as much as anyone – even Korg – to demonstrate the possibilities of Korg’s Multi Engine, which is featured on the NTS-1, the Minilogue XD and Prologue synths.

Pavlov has developed 5 user oscillators and 17 FX for the platform, dramatically expanding the possibilities of the synths.

His latest Multi Engine release is Stator, a tape wobble simulator plugin. It is designed to replicate the effects of speed fluctuations in tape machines, namely wow and flutter, due to uneven electric motor rotation, as well as scrape flutter caused by the friction of the tape against the tape head. The algorithm also models gentle phasing artifacts produced by crosstalk between the stereo channels.

Pavlov says that the processed sound has a beautiful stereo vibe, and can go from gentle chorusing and coloration all the way to dramatic lo-fi pitch wobble.
