Zap is a unique mini-synthesiser
controlled by incoming audio. It starts with an
envelope follower that tracks the peak energy of the
sound and then applies it onto the frequency of a
monophonic oscillator. With three different
oscillator waveform modes and features like envelope
stepping, Zap can turn any sound source into dynamic
synth sweeps, sub-basses, blips, chirps or glitches.

Zap has a simple and stylish user interface built
with colour-coded graphics and full Retina
resolution support. It has subtle animations and a
live output waveform view, making even such a simple
effect very fun and engaging to work with. And yet,
thanks to hardware-accelerated rendering, Zap feels
fast and responsive even on older, lower-end Macs.
Zap works with Logic, GarageBand, Live, MainStage,
ReNoise, Reaper, Studio One, Digital Performer,
Tracktion and other software that supports Audio
Unit effect plugins. It comes in 32/64 bit format
for Intel Macs running OS X 10.6 or later, and
supports Retina screen resolution.
