AudioThing’s Things – Motor

Introducing Things Motor, a plugin effect that uses side-chaining to combine signals in new and interesting ways. Put in any two signals and they will dance around each other like courting birds drunk on fermented cherries.

AudioThing added a vibrato and a panner synced to the “motor” LFO, as well as some of AudioThing’s classic analogue-like sound shaping to make this a truly versatile tool.


  • Signal Chopper
  • Tremolo, Vibrato, Panner
  • Multi-wave LFO (Sine, Triangle, Ramp Up, Ramp Down, Square, Sine Up, Sine Down, Exp Up, Exp Down, S&H)
  • LFO Start/Stop with Speed Control
  • Resizable Window

System Requirements

  • Windows: Windows 7, 8, 10, 2GHz CPU, 4 GB RAM, VST2, VST3, AAX, CLAP (64-bit)
  • Mac: OS X 10.9 – macOS 12 Monterey, 2GHz CPU, 4 GB RAM, VST2, VST3, AU, AAX, CLAP (64-bit)
  • Universal 2 Binary

Together with the variable time on the motor start/stop this becomes the sound morphing rotary effect you never know you needed – until you hear it.

Switching is controlled via a variable waveshape LFO instead of the fixed physical waveform of the original. This allows for smooth morphing or aggressively chopped sounds, and worlds in between.

Collaboration with Hainbach

Bringing avant-garde techniques of the past to a modern audience is one of Hainbach’s main interests on his channel, and AudioThing are happy to have partnered up with him on this project. Hainbach, based out of Berlin, Germany, electronic music composer and performer who creates shifting audio landscapes THE WIRE called “One hell of a trip”. Never losing his childhood wonder, he still searches for the sounds in between on modular synths, tape, and test equipment, making even the unmusical “music”.
