Plugin Spotlight: Xfer Cthulhu Demonstration

Former ICON Instructor and Xfer Records mastermind Steve Duda joins David Alexander at ICON Collective in Los Angeles to demonstrate Cthulhu.

Cthulhu Overview

Cthulhu is two MIDI FX modules combined into one plugin: One-half is a chord memorizer and player that allows you to experiment with creating and reworking chord progressions. The other half sports a pattern-based arpeggiator that allows you to manipulate incoming notes or chords in various rhythmic ways.

Chords Module

One note becomes many. Cthulhu makes creating various chord progressions fun and easy with single-note presses. The plugin also comes equipped with over 150 factory chord presets allowing for a near-unlimited amount of possible musical-sounding chord progressions. Instantly find inspiration by recording your own chords or importing MIDI. Moreover, the Chords Module also analyzes the chords you play. It also provides various sorting options such as Circle of 5ths, Chromatic, low note, and more.

Arp Module

Transform your chords in new ways with Cthulhu’s unique pattern-based arpeggiator. The eight tabs of the step sequencer allow you to completely reshape the incoming MIDI notes. Even a single note fed into the arp can become a unique and rhythmic riff! Cthulhu’s Arp Module features advanced features such as chord-arpeggio mode, ties, duration/velocity sequencing, intelligent transpose, harmony, and more. Additionally, every tab of the sequencer can also operate on its own length, allowing for evolving polymeric arpeggios. From simple to complex or chaotic to precise arpeggios, Cthulhu gives you the power to transform your ideas in noteworthy ways – pun intended!
