Wow, just wow. Reformer Pro is a stylish and responsive tool that answers most of Sound Designers questions about the original Reformer, including the possibility of building custom libraries. Turn live input into anything from tiger growls to electronic glitches. Not only that, but it responds differently to a variety of frequency content. Using it's procedural audio techniques, users can take advantage of Krotos' many Reformer libraries, or build their own.

Dehumaniser 2 is a staple tool in many a Sound Designer's secret weapon box. Morph live input into various modulated creature noises, some of which are just as effective as processing them manually, which is very impressive. It's a life saver with today's fast turnaround workflows. It is a modular processing environment with 10 modules and 100+ presets.
