The weirdest thing in your sonic arsenal

If you are heavily into experimental stuff and have always found that none of the numerous plugins available out there offer the possibility of making these kinds of really bizarre effects and textures that have been haunting your mind, Hematohm is your Holy Grail. Ideal for horror/sci-fi movies.

It's nice to have a plug-in that actually does something drastic for a change.

High-quality frequency shifter

As a frequency shifter, Hematohm goes far beyond ring modulation, although it may remind you of the sound of the latter. It's not a pitch shifter either: instead of removing the whole harmonic content, it handles frequency itself. This, in conjunction with other controls, can radically change your sound.

In my last album I used ample doses of Ohmicide:Melohman, OhmBoyz, Hematohm, Predatohm and Symptohm:Melohman.

3 auxiliary killer features

Combine Hematohm's core competency with a vicious envelope follower to add some colour, with an LFO with 10 waveforms and plenty of controls (like a 3 randomized shapes capable of an unlimited number of modulation patterns) and a delay that you can route to the direct forward path or the feedback path alone.

The weirdest sounds ever

That's all very well and good, but how does all this sound at the end? Odd - Incredibly odd, as anybody having merely switched between built-in presets will tell you. Certainly, it will not be your everyday tool for producing top 40 songs, but it's definitely the perfect secret weapon for sound designers looking for alien FX.

Two skins, two paths to the Force

Ohm Force plugins come with two skins: the classic one gives you all the controls in a neat, old school analogue rack-like interface. It's a good point to start learning and get familiar with the plugin's capabilities. The other one, called 'funky', embodies the true spirit of Ohm Force.
See for yourself!

"An intro to the Hematohm"

As with all Ohm Force plugins

Thanks to auto-bind, you can control any parameter via your MIDI controller. Adjust LFO phase to be in sync with your host's tempo. Save and load settings in no time. Group parameters together for advanced control. Morph between presets to produce surprising transaction effects, sonically as well as visually.
