Sinevibes has stood for one thing for years: exceptional plugins for Mac. One of these is Malfunction that can add in seconds a circuit-bent character to any audio signal. Today, the companies released a major update for Malfunction and added major new features as well as improves the plugin a lot. The developers re-design the product completely inside as well as outside. As you can see already, the developers created complete new graphical user interface with a much better usability.

On the feature side, they added build-in gate to prevent endless self-oscillation. On the modulation side, they include new flavours to  it with two freshly developed modulation generators: broken triangle & broken saw waveforms. On top, the entire plugin performs now much better in every macOS DAW.


Malfunction is a “circuit-bent” filter – a filter with intentionally broken connections and erroneous math that produces very special, hissy and screaming distortion. To tame this dramatic effect the plugin includes a low-pass pre-filter with a booster, as well as an output gate followed by a multi-mode filter. Malfunction also has two highly versatile tempo-synchronized modulation generators routed into the circuit-bent and the output filters for intricate morphing and pulsations: they feature many different waveforms including our special “broken triangle” and “staircase”. Plus, these modulators also offer variable chaos control which gradually adds random, never-repeating accents on each individual waveform cycle.

Malfunction has an intuitive user interface built with Sinevibes trademark color-coded, animated graphics and highly legible shapes and text. Thanks to carefully tuned parameters, superb efficiency and stability, Malfunction is a deeply creative tool that is also very enjoyable day to day.
