The VST Effects topic
« on: February 01, 2006, 14:15:00 »
Before you do anything, note this: This topic is only about VST Effects. There is a seperate topic about VST Instruments!

Since MODPlug Tracker is able to use VST effects, people get more into using them. There are sites like kvraudio.com that is dedicated to providing free vst's, as its for payed ones too.

The question is: Have you played with an interesting VST latelly and want to tell everyone about? Then this is the topic to do so.

Here's a little template you can copy to use for your reply.

[b]Name of VST:[/b]
[b]This VST does:[/b]
[b]Quality:[/b]
[b]License of this VST (and costs):[/b]
[b]Link to VST or site:[/b]

explaination:
Name: this one is obvious i think...
What it does: You can enter a short description or function, like: EQ, Moog Filter, Distortion, Multi... etc...
Quality: How do you rate the soundquality of the output? (HQ, MQ, LQ, possible specs like 44khz, Mono, etc)
License: Freeware, shareware, buy, etc... (shareware = download for try, buy is only download after payment) and ofcource if there's a price, how much it costs!
Link to VST or site: Provide us with a link where you can download the vst. If its a commercial one you can point the download to their website with price info etc.


List of gathered plugins:
------------------------------------
G-Amp Classic: Free, Distortion / Overdrive / Amp, HQ, nice deep sound, and excellent if source is HQ
"Heh, maybe I should've joined the compo only because it would've meant I wouldn't have had to worry about a damn EQ or compressor for a change. " - Atlantis
"yes.. I think in this case it was wishful thinking: MPT is makng my life hard so it must be wrong" - Rewbs

Name of VST: Super Impulse Reverb (SIR)
This VST does: Generates reverb using impulses (basically recordings of reverbs)
Quality: SIR itself allows finetuning the reverb sound, but the quality is entirely due to the impulses you use, such as from a System 6000 (multi-thousand dollar reverb).

Name of VST: dfx Skidder

Name of VST: GlaceVerb
This VST does: Reverb effect
Quality: Very good.  One of the best free reverb plugins I've heard.  It can be a bit CPU intensive though, especially if you're using it with too many other VSTs.

Name of VST: Digilogue Blue Paramater EQ
This VST does: Parametric Equalizer
Quality: Good allrounder, Amazing where suited. Low CPU usage.
License of this VST (and costs): contribute-ware
Link to VST or site: http://www.digilogue.de/

The Blue-line package has no limitations, but they ask for you to send $35 if you end up using them.
Whilst the package has many VST's, Im focusing on the Equalizer for now.

Lovely unique character! The bass is a very mellow, whilst the treble is crisp. It has a lot of presence and is very good at both increasing and reducing frequencies. It has 4 bands and if it had just one more, Id be a lot happier. Nevertheless, amongst many far more expensive VSTs, this one has a permanent place in my collection.
