Product Overview

Interstellar Waterphone plugin creates the haunting soundscapes and textures.

It is based on selected acoustic waterphone samples captured in high detail.

This instrument provides very interesting melodic possibilities with microtonal glimpses. The sound is rich in odd harmonics and overtones.

Three different Interstellar Waterphones were recorded to make an audio source for this plugin. Sounds last long until they vanish into the silence. The average sample length is 30 seconds.

Unique sounds recorded on professional equipment suited for cinematic recordings.

The sounds of the waterphone are very complex. They have sharp transients and long reverberating sustain which is very subtle and rich with harmonics. These sounds are singing and enchanting but also thunder-striking and whispering in the next moment.

Control over sound by multiple parameters

The Interstellar Waterphone plugin has many diferent parameters for sound control

  • Attack, Decay, Sustain, Release envelope
  • Sample start offset
  • Low-pass and high-pass filters

Virtual Bow

Interstellar Waterphone has a "Virtual Bow" knob, that can play sounds and generate midi data, that will go out of your plugin and can be recorded by a DAW software.


  • Offset
  • Bow velocity
  • Velocity randomness

Automation learning

You can effectively and easy assign the Interstellar Waterphone knobs to receive certain MIDI CC messages from your MIDI controller. It works in standalone application and in some DAW's, for example this feature works in Reaper so it isn't disabled in the plugin version but it's primarly designed and reccomended for the standalone application use.

2 - "Dry Space" - Bowed sounds without water, tuned to A=440 Hz
