STW Audio a sorti REFLEX free.

QuoteREFLEX free is capable of generating huge spaces, short rooms, or chorus like modulations through a cascade of regenerating delays. It's sound is a mixture of straight stereo delays followed by a dense cloud of reflections. It achieves a huge and spacey wideness with a decent amount of the two modulation sources.


*Short reflections up to endless reverberation.
*Delay/Reverb Modulation.
*Two modulation shapes.
*Lean GUI.
*Low on CPU.


Sir Elliot a sorti the SL–1.

QuoteThe SL-1 was designed to tame Brass Instruments under live sound reinforcement environments. It will however easily adapt to the recording market.

The SL-1 is more suited for Brass Instruments or female vocals that fall within the Alto range.

Offering a soft limiting technology, distortion is minimised which makes it superb for Jazz & Salsa music.

*An additional analog signal path emulation provides some subtle but precious stereo imaging improvements.


Xoxos sort Pink:

QuotePink VST is a free amp simulation effect for guitars, featuring 10 shaping options and an optional second gain stage. The zip includes mono and stereo versions.


WOK sort BassPlus.

QuoteBassPlus is an enhancer for low frequencies. Intended for drums, but works on other signals too of course. It's not a fixed EQ, but has a detector for lower frequencies and enhances them and/or adds a new subtone to it.
Adjusting the amount of bass frequencies as well as the extra bass volume and frequency is quick and easy, the plugin can even be used in the end mix.


AudioTeknikk sort RedAmption.

QuoteRedAmption is a versatile and powerful compressor suited for many different tasks. It is designed to respond as a analog compressor would do. It also has four saturation/ distortion modes.


*Switchable gain reduction/ input output meter.
*Feed forward/ backward blend knob.
*Feed forward feed backward / sidechain blend knob.
*Tilt EQ knob to alter tone of envelope follower signal.
*Threshold knob. 0...-24dBfs
*Ratio knob. 1: 1.1...20
*Attack knob. Time 0.1...100 ms
*Release knob. Time 0.04...4 sec
*Stereo, individual left right, mid or side processing buttons.
*Four saturation mode buttons.
*Dry/ wet blend knob.
*Makeup gain knob.
*Off/On switch.
*Ctrl + left mouse click to default knobs.
*Shift + left mouse click and drag to get precise knob movement.


Bob Leggitt sort Real Rotor

QuoteThe FreeST Real Rotor VST rotary speaker effect replicates the sound of a mic'd up, valve-type, bass-plus-horns rotary speaker cabinet, as typically used with an old Hammond organ. It's a development of my original Real Rotor effect, which was integrated into the FreeST VSTX3 virtual organ. Not only does this new version have improvements over the original, it's also the first time the rotary has been available in its own right, not as part of an instrument. So now the Real Rotor can be used with any VST organ, and indeed any other instruments you feel it would suit.


ThePriest sort ChannelTools

QuoteChannelTools is a freeware VST plug-in to perform various tasks, primarily to control and analyze the levels of signals and to check and modify the stereo image.


- Written in C++, unique buggy :) DSP algorithms developed by myself.
- Awful GUI designed by myself.
- Purely digital, not analog modeled.
- Two gain faders with leds for activity (green leds) and clip (red leds).
- Configurable gain smoothing.
- Stereo width fader (0 to 200 %) with correlation meter.
- Pan fader with "stereo position meter".
- Swap left and right channels.
- Invert phase.
- Mono.
- Mute.
- Limiter (hard limiter, not analog modeled, digital).
- Metering (peak and RMS).
- Double precision (64-bit) floating point internal processing engine.
- Double precision (64-bit) floating point audio output on VST 2.4 compatible hosts.
- Full automation support.
- Any sample rate supported.
- Zero latency.


Voxengo sort  AnSpec.

QuoteAnSpec is an analog-style third-octave spectrum analyzer plug-in for professional music production applications. It was designed to be a handy visual feedback tool for those who like smoothness and easiness of use of analog analyzers. AnSpec also provides peak level indication.

While there are no adjustable parameters available in this plug-in, you can still change level meter ballistics and resize plug-in's window.


*1/3 octave analog-style spectrum analyzer.
*Stereo and mono analysis.
*Peak level indication.
*All sample rates support.
*User interface window resizing.
*Zero processing latency.


Bob Leggitt sort 5 effets pour la série Stomp King.

QuoteThese are highly individual, but extremely musical freeware devices which have the sonic aura of a classic vintage stomp box range.

Among the first batch are some offbeat and interesting units including an analogue delay, a very cool guitar amp simulator (also brilliant for bass or clonewheel organ), a sophisticated 'dimension'-style symphonic chorus, a cyclic filter and a standalone vibrato.


Adam Szabo sort Phazor.

QuotePhazor is a free effect plugin, which emulates the phaser effect found in the Virus synthesizers, which helped make its characteristic sound. A lot of time was devoted to make it sound very close to the original and every control has been carefully adjusted to behave just like the phaser from the Virus.

It has selectable 1 to 6 stage all-pass filters controlled by an LFO, with spread and feedback controls. The plugin is highly optimized and its CPU usage is minimal, allowing for multiple instances to be used in a project.


Jon Grove a sorti J-Scope.

QuoteWhilst experimenting with writing a VST synthesizer plugin, I found I needed an oscilloscope whose behaviour I understood. The synth plugin has not yet made it to a state where I feel it's worth releasing, but I think the oscilloscope may be useful to someone.

I've tried to make it fairly similar to a real oscilloscope, although the fact that the waveform is fed to it in bursts which don't necessarily synchronise with the computer's display refresh rate or with the oscilloscope's sweep rate makes it hard to accurately model a real screen.


*Accepts a stereo signal, and can display it in several modes.
*Timebase from 1s/div (0.1Hz) to 0.1ms/div (1kHz).
*Gain (Y) from x0.1 to x100.
*DC or AC coupled.
*Variable X-offset of trace(s).
*Y-offsets of stereo traces individually adjustable.
*Adjustable trigger level, on positive or negative slopes.
*Delayed triggering.
*Display 'freeze' option.
*Adjustable phosphor persistence.
*Optional graticule with variable brightness.
*8 preset modes for quick setup.


Kuassa a sorti basiQ.

QuotebasiQ is an acronym for Baxandall Simulation Equalizer, a FREE 3-band equalizer plugin with photorealistic graphics from Kuassa, Inc. As the name implies, the engine are modeled after a design of classic baxandall equalizer well known for its smooth shelves and natural-sounding responses, similar to the tone control on a hi-fi systems. The simple controls allow you to shape the frequency from many sources to your needs, from opening up an air on guitar leads, adding a gentle shimmer on vocals, giving extra 'oomph' on your synth basslines, or even getting more presence from your masters.

This straightforward equalizer are well-suited for mixing or mastering purpose although the neutral characteristic of basiQ are more suitable as a 'sweetening' device or giving some transparent 'tilt' to your mix rather than a surgical device, best paired on master output with Kratos Maximizer, another audio processing plugin from Kuassa, Inc.


*Simple tone control with large Low, Mid, and High knobs.
*Preset Management with 12 preset slot within a single bank.
*Mono and Stereo applicable.
*Supports up to 96 kHz Sample Rate.

*Mouse drag modifier for even more precision.
*A special "curve scale" feature which amplifies the overall frequency response of all bands.
*Nice main volume slider.
*Four output mixing modes – stereo, mono or left/right channel.
*Customizable default preset bank. Default bank comes with 10 presets.
*CPU-friendly 64 bit SSE processing.
*Three different skins, in addition to the default red theme (above), a blue and a clean minimal variant is available.
*Possibility for custom skin design (see the "skins" directory for details).


Homegrown Sounds a sorti Modulator.

QuoteModulator does what it says on the tin, it uses an LFO which can then be used to create many modulation style effects such as Flangers, Phasers, Ring Modulators etc... The LFO can also be swapped for an Envelope follower which will use the incoming sound level as the modulation source in various ways.


*Available effects include Flanger, Phasers, Low/Band/Hi Pass Filters, Frequency Modulation, Pitch Shift, Chorus, Ring Modulation, Gapper, Autopan, Low Shelf, Hi Shelf, Notch, Peak, Decimator, and Modulation Delays.
