At the Musikmesse Festival in Frankfurt, Cycling '74 has announced a forthcoming collection of audio plugins for Mac OS X. The "Mode" collection includes five individual plugins and will support VST and RTAS when it's released in the third quarter.

The Mode 1.0 collection, designed by CreativeSynth Development, offers three instruments and two effects modules. These include:

  • Bang, a single-voice percussion module with sample playback, FM synthesis and analog modeling drum synthesis;
  • Mono, a monophonic synthesizer;
  • Poly, a polyphonic synth based on classic DCO synths with a polyphonic arpeggiator;
  • Spin, an effects processor with a state-variable filter, panning effects, rhythmic gating, delay, distortion and bit reduction;
  • Wash, an effects processor with an interconnected network of six controllable recirculating delay lines.

Mode will be available for RTAS and VST in the third quarter. It will support Mac OS X and will cost $295. For more information, visit
