Transcend can best be described as retro-style, abstract, 2D shooter. The graphics are geometrical, and the pace is sometimes frenzied. Two features set Transcend apart from other games. First, its dynamic graphical engine, which can smoothly morph from one complex shape to another in realtime, produces striking displays. Combining these dynamic shapes with subtle randomizations ensures that each new play through a level is visually different from the last. The second novel feature is the musical power-up system. As you play through a level, you are simultaneously assembling an abstract visual collage and arranging a unique piece of music.

AZR3-JACK is a port of the free VST plugin AZR-3. It is a tonewheel organ with drawbars, distortion and rotating speakers. The original was written by Rumpelrausch Täips. The organ has three sections, two polyphonic with 9 drawbars each and one monophonic bass section with 5 drawbars. The two polyphonic sections respond to events on MIDI channel 1 and 2, and an optional keyboard split function makes the bass section listen to the lower keys on channel 1. The three sections have separate sustain and percussion switches as well as separate volume controls, and the two polyphonic sections have separate vibrato settings. All three sections are mixed and sent through the distortion effect and the rotating speakers simulator, where the modulation wheel can be used to switch between fast and slow rotation, and the fast and slow rotation speeds themselves can be changed separately for the lower and upper frequencies.

nekobee is a DSSI soft synth plugin that emulates the sound of the TB-303 Bassline. It is not an exact copy; rather than make it "just like the real thing", the design concentrates on modelling the circuitry and was adjusted by comparing the sounds achievable with it to those heard on classic acid house tracks. It includes a switchable square/saw wave VCO, 24dB/octave VCF, an adjustable decay time for the VCF, a fixed decay time for the VCA, and an interesting bit of circuitry around the "Accent" control.
