Promising to "bend and curl" your input signal in real time, Turbulence 2.0 is an updated "special distortion processor" from Sinevibes.

Available as a Mac Audio Units plugin, Turbulence comes billed as a "wave transformer", and is said to be capable of crafting new synthetic textures from even the most basic waveforms. Parameters can be 'animated' using the 32-step sequencer, with each of these steps having its own transformer model, curve and modulation envelope.

You can find out more and download a demo of Turbulence 2.0 on the Sinevibes website. It costs $29.
