Bref, a compact synthesizer plugin, specializes in creating synthetic percussion sounds.

Utilizing a modified version of Ephemere's synthesis engine, Bref effortlessly produces a vast array of short, crisp metallic sounds.

The workflow of Bref is streamlined and intuitive:

  • The plugin randomly generates a pair of sounds on startup.
  • Trigger it with a MIDI note (the sound has a fixed pitch, making it easy to use the plugin inside drum racks for example).
  • You can blend the sounds together using the MORPH knob (automating this knob can yield dynamic and interesting results).
  • You can regenerate each sound individually by clicking on the A and B buttons.
  • You can also regenerate the whole state of the plugin by clicking the dice button at the bottom.
  • There is no preset system, but the state of the plugin is saved when you save a project in your host.
  • The user interface can be resized by dragging the handle in the bottom right corner.
