Physicles is a container of physics-based MIDI Audio Unit plugins. These AU MIDI plugins generate MIDI messages through the use of an underlying physics engine, which models the physical interactions between various entities. In this version, the following plugin is included:

  • Physicle Bouncy: In this playground, multiple balls bounce inside a polygon. MIDI messages are generated whenever a ball collides with the side of the polygon.


  • The plugin requires a compatible AU Host such as AUM, AudioBus 3, apeMatrix, Beatmaker, Cubasis 2, or Sequencism.
  • The plugin do not generate any sound, only MIDI messages.
