Cycling '74 announced HIPNO 1.0, a new suite of over forty effects and instrument VST plug-ins for VST, Audio Units and RTAS Mac OS X host applications.
Designed by ElectroTap, this package features an irresistible mix of granular, spectral, and filter/delay-based plug-ins featuring the unique Hipnoscope user interface. Also included in the package is a set of processors that utilize live video input as a control source, and a new set of modulator plug-ins sure to captivate both the novice and long-time users of Cycling '74's Pluggo and Mode plug-in collections.
Some highlights of the HIPNO collection include:
In addition to the host-sync capabilities and the ability to use Cycling '74's modulator plug-ins for control, many of the HIPNO plug-ins offer the unique Hipnoscope interface to create, control, and explore complex preset morphs and interpolations with a flick of the wrist. While satisfying on its own, the HIPNO collection also extends the visionary signal processing and instrumental possibilities of the Pluggo and Mode plug-in collections.

Hipno has a suggested retail price of $199 and is will be available for purchase in the first quarter of 2005 from Cycling '74 or its retail dealers. A Windows XP version of the Hipno collection will be available later in 2005.
