Klevgrand - Krets v1.0.1 (Modular Audio Environment) x64 VST AU WiN MAC [FREE]

[Image: krets-start.jpg]

KRETS is a modular environment that can be used in any DAW compatible with the AudioUnit or VST format.

The application is based on a set of modules that can be connected in different ways, where focus is on low level audio DSP processing. There are (almost) no ready-made effects to hook into an audio stream, the purpose is for the user to create these more or less from scratch. By combining mathematical expressions and functions (available as modules) a plethora of audio effects can be created, anything from a compression algorithm to generative soundscapes.

Although we're in an early development phase, we'd love if you would like to play with it. Maybe you'll find a couple of bugs, maybe you'll invent a killer distortion algorithm by accident. (true story: An accidental algorithm is actually the reason that Klevgrand started making plugins in the first place)

In order to use Krets, you'll need a Klevgrand account. It is very free and lightweight. You’ll also need a Internet connected computer to authorize your copy of KRETS.

User Interface
First time open

When KRETS is opened for the first time, it’s necessary to login. Use the same email and password as on the Klevgrand site.


1 - The canvas

This is the surface that contains all modules. Use left mouse button to drag it around, and right mouse button to add new modules.

2 - Input Module

This module outputs two audio streams from the host (left and right).

3 - Modules (added by the user)

All modules can be connected to each other in different ways. Every module has a number of slots, and these slot positions specifies their kind.

The topmost row (green slots) is for audio input, the ones in the bottom are for audio output. The leftmost are for parameter data input, and the rightmost for parameter data output. It’s perfectly OK (and sometimes necessary) to connect an audio output to a parameter input, or a parameter output to an audio input.

Hovering a slot with the mouse will show additional info about the slot such as its name.

Two modules can be connected by clicking a module´s slot, and drag to the destination module´s slot. To remove a connection, just click a connected slot, move the mouse to the canvas and release.

Modules can be moved by click and drag at its name.

To remove a module, right click it and choose remove.

4 - Output module

Any signals routed to this modules input slots will be passed on to the host DAW. Note that there’s a built in brick wall limiter at 0dB in this module.

5 - Host parameters

These are the 8 parameters known by the host (that also can be automated). A module called ”Host Parameters” can be added to the surface and each one of those outputs reflects the DAW parameters.

A parameter can be renamed by clicking its name and type a new one. Note that the host won’t see this change, the name is only visible inside the plugin.

6 - Contextual info

When hovering a module with the mouse some more info about the module will show up here.

7 - Window resizing

Click and drag to resize the window.

8 - Annotations

By right-clicking the canvas, one can also create an annotation. Click the annotation text to change it, and click and drag the left side to move it. These annotations are just comments to help out understanding more complex patches.

9 - Menu

Click to reveal a list of functions to load / save / publish patches.

10 - Patch title

A saved patch’s (via the Menu) name

11 - Share

Opens a saved patch in the default browser. This link can be shared and imported via Menu/Import patch URL
