Sinevibes intros Skew Non-linear Audio Reverser Plugin



Sinevibes finds a reverse gear as it releases the “unique” Skew plugin


Sinevibes has introduced Skew, a non-linear audio reverser plugin. Perhaps, the developer is a forward-thinking plugin developer who is looking backwards for a change and releasing the Skew.


Use Skew to create tape rewind, pitch slide, glitch and scratch effects – This is said to be unique in its ability to warp the playback speed of multiple different curves, meaning that you can create the likes of tape rewind, pitch slide, glitch and scratch effects.


Skew works by constantly recording the incoming audio into a buffer and then playing it back in reversed chunks. There’s plenty of potential for parameter adjustment, along with a DJ-style crossfader. The idea is that you manipulate it in real-time to add spice to your build-ups, breaks and transitions.


Here’s what they say about it:


“Perfectly synchronized to the host transport, it is constantly recording the incoming audio into a buffer – and playing it back in reversed chunks. The big trick in this algorithm is that it’s able to warp its playback speed via a selection of non-linear curves, thus bending the pitch in various ways.


With each parameter having an extremely wide range of adjustment, Skew can be used to create multiple rhythmically-precise effects such as reversing, tape rewind, pitch slides, detune, glitching, and scratching. Thanks to its fine calibration, responsiveness, and DJ-style crossfade control, Skew can easily be automated or manipulated in real-time to add exciting musical complexity and create cool build-ups, breaks, and transitions.”




  • Audio reverser with precise transport synchronization
  • Six non-linear curves for warping the audio playback speed
  • Fractional chunk size adjustment with 256 possible values (from 1/16 note to 16 bars)
  • Meticulously tuned smoothing envelopes with optional overlapping
  • DJ-style crossfade control
  • Lag filters on all continuous parameters for smooth, click-free adjustment
  • Supports mono › mono, mono › stereo, and stereo › stereo channel configurations


Skew is available now for PC and Mac in VST/AU/AAX formats. The full price is $29, but it is available at a discount for previous customers and owners of the Sinevibes collection bundle.
