Best free plug-ins this week: Warmy EP1A, OctaSine and Unifilter

Best free plug-ins this weekThis week’s collection of free plug-ins brings you an awesome Pultec EQ, an FM synth with four operators and a screaming acid filter. Here’s Warmy EP1A Tube EQ, OctaSine and Unifilter.

You’ll find many more free plug-ins in our archives.

Klive Audio Warmy EP1A Tube EQ

Klive Audio Warmy EP1A Tube EQDeveloper Klive Audio introduced themselves with a quartet of new plug-ins this week, and one of them is free! It doesn’t take a scientist to figure out that Warmy EP1A Tube EQ emulates the legendary Pultec equalizer, or, to be precise, Warm Audio’s hardware recreation of the classic. The plug-in offers a resizable GUI, oversampling and a tube emulation intensity knob, which lets you dial in the desired amount of tube warmth. This one’s a must-have.

Warmy EP1A Tube EQ is available for Windows 7 or higher and macOS 10.7 or higher in VST, AU and AAX formats.

Joakim Frostegard OctaSine

Joakim Frostegard OctaSineOn to an interesting open-source FM synthesizer. OctaSine is inspired by the Native Instruments FM8 and Elektron Digitone synths. It offers four operators, which can use sine waves or noise. Each has its own set of controls: Volume, pan, modulation index, feedback, three modifiers and an ADSR envelope. There are also no less than four LFOs for additional modulation. With a 128-voice polyphony, OctaSine packs quite a punch. The minimalistic GUI is straightforward and easy to use.

OctaSine is a VST plug-in for macOS, Windows and Linux.

SNFK Music Unifilter

SNFK Music UnifilterUnifilter by SNFK Music is a cool little acid filter plug-in. It offers eight filter types, which you can tweak using the cutoff and resonance controls. There’s also a neat frequency display that shows you what’s going on. Its best feature, however, is the drive knob, which lets you dial in some saturation and additional overtones for that lovely acid growl. The developer says that Unifilter uses very little CPU. Sometimes it’s the simple things that are the best.

Unifilter is a VST3 plug-in for Windows. A Mac version is currently in development.

Say hello to Yum Audio and download a free plug-in

Yum Audio plug-insNever heard of Yum Audio? That’s about to change. The new plug-in developer is hitting the scene with four new audio tools, and you can now download one of them for free! Yum Audio’s first four plug-ins are called LoFi – Playtime, LoFi – Pitch Dropout, Spread and Spread Light, and they look like awesome additions to any sound designer’s plug-in folder.

Yum Audio plug-ins

Although Yum Audio’s website has a very Japanese feel to it, the new plug-in developer appears to be based in Germany. And they’re introducing themselves with the release of four exciting new plug-ins designed to help you bring your audio tracks to life. With a 30% launch discount, now is a great time to check out these new tools.

LoFi – Playtime is a “time twister” that lets you experiment with time and pitch. It gives you two virtual tape machines with independent controls for playback speed, direction, age and ‘shine’. There’s also a freeze button for creating interesting loops and a delay for warbling textures. I really dig the playful GUI of this one.

LoFi – Pitch Dropout is another effect designed to add tasteful imperfections to your signal. It offers six modes based on old playback systems and their characteristic dropout behaviors. You can of course adjust the amount and probability, and even trigger dropouts manually.

LoFi – Pitch Dropout

As the name suggests, Spread is a stereo spreader, albeit a very interesting one. It divides your audio signal into four adjustable frequency bands. Each band offers independent panning and width controls and can be used in M/S or Haas mode. There’s a global intensity slider which lets you make quick adjustments to the overall effect.

And then there’s Spread Light, which is currently available for free as part of Yum Audio’s special launch offer. Spread Light gives you a single Spread band, with width and pan controls and M/S and Haas modes.

If you opt for the bundle, you can get all four plug-ins for €99.

Elektron Digitakt OS 1.30 Update: Filters, 2nd LFO and more

Digitakt UpdateDigitakt owners rejoice! Elektron has a bunch of goodies for your sampling drum machine including another LFO, external signal mixing and new filters.

Digitakt OS 1.30

It’s always great to see new features added to hardware products and Elektron always seem to bring a lot to the table with every update.

LFO

First up is the second LFO which seems the same as the original but of course, doubles your modulation possibilities. It can also modulate the first LFO which could get interesting. The update extends to the display with LFO waveshape and phase now represented in the window.

Filters

The multimode filter has been expanded to include an EQ mode and a new envelope delay which is ideal for processing transients.

Elektron has introduced the bass-width filter from the Digitone that allows you to process bass sounds with high low and bandpass filtering independently from the main filter.

Elektron Digitakt

Elektron Digitakt

Mixing

The sampling inputs can now be used for mixing external signals. You can use it as a stereo source or split it into two mono signals which is perfect for running in a couple of synths. You can then process them through the reverb, delay effects and master compressor.

Other bits

The pitch range has been increased to a whole 3 octaves down. They’ve introduced multitrack step recording and resampling of individual tracks.

In order to use the Elektron Digitakt OS 1.30 with Overbridge, Overbridge must be updated to version 2.0.58, which has also just been released.

Download

The Elektron Digitakt OS 1.30 update can be downloaded free of charge from the Elektron website for all Digitakt owners.

Nembrini Audio MRH159: Marshall Super Lead 1959 Amp for 39 euros!

Nembrini Audio MRH159: Marshall Super Lead 1959 Amp for 39 eurosNembrini Audio presents the new MRH159, a software emulation of the popular Marshall Super Lead 1959 Amp. It has that typical vintage character we all love as guitarists, and that Van Halen Brown Sound that we all chase.

Nembrini Audio MRH159

This emulation can generate clean tones, but really, what we are after are those overdrive tones. The sound of a Marshall Super Lead 1959 with 4 x 12 cabs in a plugin format is exactly what the doctor ordered. Regardless of your playing style. And right now you can get it for a great introductory price. The virtual version is available as a plug-in for macOS, Windows, and even as an iOS app, for just 39 Euros!

Brown Sound

It means you can now get the Marshall Super Lead 1959 Amps straight into your DAW. And due to the company’s proven track record for making great-sounding virtual amps, expect a useful tool for your virtual rig. It also emulates that famous “Brown Sound“, something Eddie Van Halen stumbled upon in the ’70s and is now sought after by many guitar players.

Nembrini Audio MRH159: Marshall Super Lead 1959 Amp

Nembrini Audio MRH159: a virtual Marshall Super Lead 1959 Amp

Tweaked to perfection

You get two channels to imitate the sound and layout of the original Marshal amp: Channel 1 is responsible for the high frequencies and Channel 2 for the “normal” sound. There’s also a Variac Variable Transformer to get you that Brown Sound by starving the circuit of voltage, a 6CA7 Fat Bottle tube (instead of EL34 power valve ), a change in resistance and a Fat cap 25uF for the tube. All this helps to refine the overdrive and get you those classic rock gain tones you hear on records.

Free Klon?

Whilst you are checking out this new amp simulation, you may as well download Nembrini Audio’s free Clon Minotaur Transparent Overdrive based on the legendary Klon pedal, which we wrote about back in May. It can be a lot of fun to throw an overdrive at the front end of a Marshall amp, and get some extra tones with this virtual pedal.

Prices and Specifications

Nembrini Audio MRH159 is currently available for an introductory price of $39, instead of $137, until 04 July 2021 on the manufacturer’s website. The plug-in runs on macOS 10.9 or later and Windows 7 or later and supports VST3, AAX, AU and VST in 64-bit. For authorization, you need a free iLok account (or dongle). A demo version and a PDF user manual are also available for download on the company’s website. A selection of presets is included with the package.

The emulation is also available as an iOS app in the Apple App Store for the price of 10.99 euros. It requires iOS/iPadOS 9.3 or later and is compatible with an iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch. In addition, it runs as AUv3 and standalone on an Apple Mac with M1 CPU.
