Hipno was a set of 42 Unique Plugins featuring “Mesmerizing controller interfaces, matched with creative audio processing”. The plug-ins were inspired in part by a quote at disciplineglobalmobile.com that reads:
Efficiency: the right amount of the right quality of energy, in the right place at the right time, doing what is right.
Hipno was developed by Timothy Place along with Jesse Allison and Nathan Wolek through Electrotap, and released in the Summer of 2005 by Cycling ’74. These links point to the initial press information distributed at the NAMM 2005 show:
Sadly, Hipno was discontinued due to the underlying technology on which it relied (Pluggo) being discontinued. This was announced on the Electrotap Blog, where the current status of Hipno has been updated through blog comments.
