Introducing Plasmonic

The resonant depth of physical modeling merged with subtractive synthesis

My goal is for Plasmonic to approach the depth and detail of an acoustic instrument, while making it easy to shape the sound into anything you want. Its deep modulation capability and MPE support make it a very playable and expressive instrument.

The heart of Plasmonic is a self-oscillating delay-based resonator/multimode ladder filter pair, which can be configured in parallel or in series. Each filter can take any combination of the audio sources as input. This creates some very interesting interactions between the audio source and feedback loop of the resonator.

Audio sources include two wavetable oscillators, a sample-based impulse generator (built-in samples only), and a filtered noise generator. Both oscillators have waveform transformations which nicely complement the resonator. The impulse generator is especially suited for making the resonator ring. 

Modulation is deep and makes it easy to add detail and life to the sound. Each parameter has a popup panel displaying the depth, polarity and inversion of each modulation source, allowing unprecedented control. 

The master section contains a 3-band EQ, a polyphonic saturator, and two modulated delay effects. Like the resonator and ladder filter, the delay effects are capable of self-oscillation, which can lead to all kinds of sonic mayhem.

Four Audio Sources

  • 2 wavetable oscillators with dynamic wave transformations
  • A special impulse generator for making the resonator ring
  • A noise generator with its own resonant lowpass filter

Two Interacting Filters

  • A self-oscillating resonator provides organic resonance
  • A multimode self-oscillating ladder filter: LP, HP, BP, 1, 2 and 4 pole, formants filter and LP+HP in parallel and series
  • Each filter can take any combination of audio sources
  • Can be configured in series or parallel

Modulation and Expression

  • MPE Support, nearly all parameters can be MPE controlled, and all factory presets are fully MPE playable
  • Deep and precise Modulation system, nearly all parameters can be controlled by any combintaion of modulators
  • Multiple ADSRs and LFOs with unique features
  • 8 configurable MIDI Macros
  • 3 Pulse modules for triggering modules to create complex rhythmic effects

Unique Delay Effects

  • Most delay effects are capable of self-oscillation
  • Complex modulation effects
  • Sympathetic mode resonates dynamically according to a harmonic grid
  • Polyphonic Saturation
  • 3-band Parametric EQ

Intuitive Graphic Interface

  • Resizable single-panel interface, everything is no more than a click away
  • Easy-to-use, setting up complex modulation is fun and intuitive
  • Controls are precise, providing coarse and fine with adjustment with one hand

System Requirements

  • Windows: 8 and higher
  • macOS: 10.11 (El Capitan) and higher. M1 compatibility is currently under evaluation.


  • macOS: Standalone, Audio Unit, VST3
  • Windows: Standalone, VST3

Attention VST Users! Plasmonic is only available in VST3 format, so please make sure your DAW supports VST3. This is because Steinberg is no longer licensing VST2 to new developers.


With one license you can install Plasmonic on up to 3 machines, using only one machine at a time.

Plasmonic requires internet access during activation, once activation is successful it no longer needs internet access. There is no support for offline activation.
