Oligarc is a collection of four world class virtual analog FX, tied together by a modulation nerve center that converts the input audio into control signals that can be routed to most of the effect knobs. Oligarc can be an LFO-driven filter, an envelope-controlled phaser, a gate-triggered saturation effect, or anything else you can think up, including mad combinations of linked modulation of multiple effects at once.
In addition, the Oligarc package contains standalone versions of the Drive, Phaser, and Chorus effects, for more traditional usage — although there’s nothing traditional about these effects.

* The “Drink This” demo song starts with the dry instrument sounds used in the rest of the mix. The “synth” sounds were created with a test tone generator. The only effects used are Oligarc, a basic delay and compressor.
** Dimitar’s guitar was recorded direct. No guitar amp or amp simulator was used, just Oligarc.

*Note: Oligarc makes extensive use of the SSE2 processor instruction set for maximum CPU efficiency. Older CPUs (notably the pre-64 Athlon XP series) that do not support SSE2 will not recognize it as a loadable plugin. A less optimized build that will run on older machines can be downloaded here. There is no difference in usage or licensing terms.
