Best free plug-ins this week: Schroeder, Hanon B70 and Lattice Reverb https://ingovogelmann.net/2020/05/24/best-free-plug-ins-this-week-schroeder-hanon-b70-and-lattice-reverb/?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=best-free-plug-ins-this-week-schroeder-hanon-b70-and-lattice-reverb https://ingovogelmann.net/2020/05/24/best-free-plug-ins-this-week-schroeder-hanon-b70-and-lattice-reverb/#respond Sun, 24 May 2020 07:59:18 +0000 https://ingovogelmann.net/?p=16989 An iconic tonewheel organ and not one, but two unusual reverbs: That’s this week’s collection of the best free plug-ins. Download Schroeder, Hanon B70 and Lattice Reverb, and spend your Sunday checking out these great freeware plug-ins. For even more free plug-ins, head over to our archives. discoDSP Schroeder This plug-in models the Schroeder reverb, an early concept for artificial reverberation developed by Manfred Schroeder in the early 1960s. A Schroeder reverb is based on a series of all-pass filters, a parallel bank of comb filters and a mixing matrix (you can read more about it here). Its distinct character is delightfully different from all the spring and plate reverbs out there. The only controls are decay and mix sliders. Schroeder is a VST3 and AU plug-in for macOS. Get Schroeder here Lostin70s Hanon B70 Hanon B70 by Lostin70s is an emulation of the legendary Hammond B3 tonewheel organ and a Leslie 122 rotary speaker cabinet. It’s all there: two drawbar sets, percussion, chorus/vibrato and of course the Leslie speaker simulation. You can adjust the balance between the bass and horn rotors, and there’s an overdrive for the Leslie effect. Lostin70s has even thrown in a reverb. Now that’s the kind of free plug-in we don’t see every day! Hanon B70 is available for Windows and macOS in VST, VST3 and AU formats (64 bit only). Download Hanon B70 here Uhhyou Lattice Reverb I promised you two unusual reverbs – here’s the other one. Uhhyou has released Lattice Reverb, a reverb based on a lattice structure. According to the developer, it features 16 delays per channel, each of which can be modulated by an LFO and passed through a low…

UVI Drum Replacer: the next big drum trigger VST? https://ingovogelmann.net/2020/05/22/uvi-drum-replacer-the-next-big-drum-trigger-vst/?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=uvi-drum-replacer-the-next-big-drum-trigger-vst https://ingovogelmann.net/2020/05/22/uvi-drum-replacer-the-next-big-drum-trigger-vst/#respond Fri, 22 May 2020 21:59:07 +0000 https://ingovogelmann.net/?p=16978 The art and science of drum recording sees a machine learning-powered extension with the release of UVI Drum Replacer. The French developer describes Drum Replacer as a real-time, program-adaptive drum replacement utility. But triggering samples isn’t all there is to this plug-in, as we shall see… UVI Drum Replacer Drum Replacer’s abilities also include bleed removal, VST hosting (so you can trigger drum samplers), and a sub-bass generator. Incoming audio is analyzed and spectral models of up to six components are created. These are brought to the trigger detection module with up to 8 internal audio samples or VST instruments. Samples can be triggered all at once, or sequentially and randomly. Thus, a welcome bit of variety is achieved and the dreaded machine-gun type sound is avoided. Triggering is one thing, but the component isolation allows for other interesting applications like extracting specific drum sounds to side-chain them into external plug-ins or gear. A cutting edge tool Drum Replacer also features an integrated browser to let you locate and tag files and plug-ins. Sample controls include an AHD amplitude envelope, fade in/out to eliminate clicks, and tuning. Gain and pitch matching is a one-click operation, and an integrated waveform display lets you precisely align samples to the input audio. Up to 8 tracks can be configured and saved as presets, complete with metering and detection settings. Each track can be individually named for orientation. All in all, Drum Replacer looks like a cutting-edge drum replacement and clean-up tool. Time will tell whether it truly stands up to industry standards like Slate Trigger and Drumagog. Price and availability Sold at an introductory discount (EUR/USD 59, down from EUR/USD 99) until June 30,…

It might just be the thing for guitarists looking to make their recordings stand out, but without having to dive into the esoterics of virtual effect-chains, or for those without a prior sound engineering background.  Finisher VOODOO UJAM has created a super friendly front-end for a series of effects that enhances your recorded guitar tone. Its simplistic layout practically does all the hard work for you. The new Finisher VOODOO combines convolution and modulation effects, dynamics, distortion and EQs, as well as multiband effects, that can go from granular manipulation of your audio through to the more out-there, ‘twisted’ effects. UJAM Finisher VOODOO.   Normally, to achieve some of these combinations you’d need a fair bit of knowledge in sound engineering, at least if you wanted to make them sound good. Fortunately, this plug-in does all of this, in the background, for you. All you have to do is choose a preset, then tweak the controls and adjust to taste. Finisher VOODOO features: More than 150 signature sound designer presets 50 multi-effect modes Finisher control and 4 Variation knobs – each is macro-programmed for the effect configuration 40 effect algorithms under the hood: amongst others multiband-compression and -distortion, convolution and modulation effects, Filters, EQs to envelope following, and granular effects Automation and MIDI control to connect pedals and add extra articulation to performances. Add a bit of sparkle The Finisher VOODOO is available in VST, AU, and AAX plug-in formats for both OSX and Windows, and so should run in most DAWs without any problems. I tried it out…

This new re-engineered, high-definition BIAS DSP engine for guitar is a powerful little tool that is free to download on your iPhone or iPad. BIAS FX 2 Mobile App The basic version of the BIAS FX 2 Mobile App is available to download for free from the Apple App Store on your iPhone or iPad. In-app purchases will unlock more virtual equipment, if you find the basic version lacking. According to Positive Grid, this latest version of the app has a “completely re-engineered” BIAS DSP engine with “hundreds of improvements”, all geared towards bringing more flexibility and realism to the rig. HD Sound Engine The company boasts that its HD Sound Engine has “hyper-realistic and detailed tones”, which we all know may well be marketing spiel. However, having tried it out, I do think that it sounds better than its predecessor. BIAS FX 2 Mobile All that power! The app gives you 101 effects, 35 amps, 25 cabs, and 4 mics in your pocket virtual guitar rig. You can also create your own dual amp hybrid setups. If all that’s a bit too overwhelming and you’re not sure where to begin, you can always use one of the the app’s 77 pre-made virtual rigs to start off with, and take it from there. Guitar Match & Loops The Guitar Match function gives you the ability to turn your guitar into one of 20 virtual guitars on offer. So you may find yourself experimenting with different guitar tones way before you even begin to delve into all those amps and effects!

VCV Rack has the coolness and Softube Modular has the authenticity whereas Voltage Modular has the “jolly” in the shape of a slightly too colourful interface. Well, they’ve fixed that by dialling the Duplo down just enough to give it more professional and serious feel. Sometimes it’s the little things that make a difference and it felt immediately better the first time I loaded a patch in version 2. Patch Many of the new features revolve around the notion that because it’s software you don’t actually need to tolerate the restrictions of modular hardware. They’ve been moving this way already with previous updates adding polyphonic cabling and multiples baked into every patch socket. Well, now they’ve gone further. Each patch socket can now host as many cables as you can stuff into them. So you are never short of sources or destinations and without having to clutter up your rack with Mults and Splitters. When you click on a socket a ring of 6 emerge and as you fill them up another socket gets added to the ring apparently forever. You can also move all the cables together by shift-clicking. Cables could already be set to different levels of visibility but now there’s a button to show/hide them instantly. When hidden the relevant cable reappears when you mouse over a patched socket.

Argon8 2.0 Updates are always welcome but along with the expected tuning, tweaks and fixes comes a couple of pretty substantial additions. MPE was one of those things that you felt it always should have had and so it’s great to see that implemented. The Polyphonic Step Sequencer is probably more interesting with up to 8 notes per step all able to have fun with the 4 lanes of parameter automation. The Envelope Curves update brings in 7 new types and 3 additional curves. Each one is independent and so you can have different envelope types in one patch. Expo – classic curve found in the original release of Argon – suited for most sound types Snappy – fast attack and decay time curves – best suited for percussive material Soft – smoother attack and release time curves – best suited for pads Linear – simple linear ramp for each envelope stage – best suited for modulation Expo Long – Expo curve with double the maximum time for each stage of the envelope Snappy Long – Snappy curve with double the maximum time for each stage of the envelope Soft Long – Soft curve with double the maximum time for each stage of the envelope Linear Long – Linear curve with double the maximum time for each stage of the envelope Modal Argon8 The gain structure has been revised giving a new Gain Boost setting which increases the average output level. There’s also increased range in the Patch Gain Control improving the audio quality while decreasing the noise floor.…

Valhalla Supermassive: Reverbs and delays from another galaxy – for free! https://ingovogelmann.net/2020/05/20/valhalla-supermassive-reverbs-and-delays-from-another-galaxy-for-free/?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=valhalla-supermassive-reverbs-and-delays-from-another-galaxy-for-free https://ingovogelmann.net/2020/05/20/valhalla-supermassive-reverbs-and-delays-from-another-galaxy-for-free/#respond Tue, 19 May 2020 22:41:04 +0000 https://ingovogelmann.net/?p=16927 Here’s an awesome freebie from Valhalla DSP: Reverb guru Sean Costello has released Valhalla Supermassive. The plug-in uses feedback delay networks to create super lush, otherworldly reverbs and other effects. And it’s completely free! Valhalla Supermassive Valhalla Supermassive is a new effects plug-in based on feedback delay networks. If I’m getting this right, that’s a bunch of delays mixed together and interconnected by feedback. There are eight modes which affect the attack, decay and density of the echoes, resulting in a wide variety of sounds. Like most Valhalla plug-ins, Supermassive has a very clean GUI with a simple set of controls. Much of it looks like a fairly standard delay plug-in, with controls for the delay time (up to 2 seconds), feedback, mix, width and a 2-band EQ. The Warp knob is where it gets interesting. According to the developer, this spreads out the delay times of the delays in the feedback network relative to the delay setting. Valhalla DSP says that this can transform a sound from a simple delay to more resonant echoes and lush reverbs. The density knob, which controls the number of perceived echoes in the output, is another way to explore the territory between delays and reverb. Finally, the plug-in offers a sine wave LFO for modulating the delay times, which results in chorus and flanger effects. The developer says that Supermassive contains concepts that he’s been thinking about for many years. Apparently, Supernatural is based on a bunch of ideas that were too weird for other plug-ins like Valhalla Delay. That can only be a good thing! And did we mention that Supernatural is free? You don’t even have to create a user account…

Acustica Audio has released version 4 of Pink, its modelled analog gear suite. Pink4 recreates a bunch of studio gear from the 60’s made in America. Here’s more about the project… Acustica Audio Pink4 The Pink4 suite comprises six plug-ins including a preamp module with 8 circuit models, a 10-band graphic EQ, a 4-band parametric EQ, single and multi-band compressors, and a channel strip which integrates all the processors in a single plug-in. Of note is that the 4-band EQ model contains a preamp section with 16 line path and 9 custom preamp emulations. This makes the module suitable for analog summing inside the box. As far as virtual rack equipment goes, Pink4 is certainly a stand-out. However, the fidelity comes at a cost – a whopping 9GB download and relatively high CPU usage. Hopefully, your computer is up to spec and able to handle as many instances as you need in a project. Price and availability Pink4 is a free update for existing owners of the suite. As a new purchase, it’s priced EUR 69 (down from EUR 199) for the first four weeks after release. Very good value with a long introductory window! The plug-ins are available in VST, AU, and AAX formats for Windows and Mac computers.

There are two channels, with each one having its own independent controls for volume and gain. From there, the audio signal  goes through a three-band equalizer and an exclusive power amp resonance and presence control. 8180 Monster Tube Guitar Amplifier Plugin Virtual Environment The plugin comes with six different cabs and four microphone emulations that you can experiment with in the virtual room and recording environment, as well as some additional parameters for shaping the effect and tone. You can blend between these microphones and effects using the mixer section. Also very interesting is the Impulse Response (IR) Loader, which can import up to three third-party IRs. These can be blended and applied to the overall tone, which I think is a neat little feature. Finally there is a cleaner, which removes unwanted low and high frequencies, and a noise gate. Nembrini Audio 8180 controls Prices and dates If you hurry, you can get the Nembrini Audio 8180 Monster Tube Guitar Amplifier from the manufacturer’s website for an introductory price of $29 until May 30 2020, instead of the regular $137. The plugin runs on Mac OSX 10.9 or higher and Windows 7 or higher, in VST, VST3, AAX and AU fromats.

There’s an emulation of a rare Soviet drum synth, a 4-operator FM synth and a plug-in that lets you scratch an audio file like a vinyl record. Check out Elsita-V, Exakt Lite and Scratchknott! For many more free plug-ins, check out our huge archive! Digital Systemic Emulations Elsita-V The RMIF Elsita is a 4-channel analogue drum synthesizer from the Soviet Union. Digital Systemic Emulations has emulated the rare machine in a very cool free plug-in. The developer says that while the four channels have identical parameters, they don’t sound exactly the same. The controls are in Russian, but there’s a translation on the website. Each channel has envelope, tune and decay controls, a filter and a blend knob for adjusting the balance between the oscillator and noise. Elsita-V is available for Windows and macOS in VST, VST3 and AU formats. Get Elsita-V here Sonicbits Exakt Lite Exakt Lite by Sonicbits is a free 12-voice FM synthesizer. Its four operators can be arranged in eight FM algorithms. In addition to basic waveforms, the synth emulates the classic waveforms of the Yamaha TX81Z. The developer says that each operator has its own 5-point TX-style amp envelope, which can be edited graphically. There’s also a resonant multi-mode filter and a neat waveform visualizer. Exakt Lite looks like a great addition to any plug-in folder! Exakt Lite is available for Windows 7 or higher (64 bit) and macOS 10.9 or higher in VST, VST3 and AU formats. Download Exakt Lite here Derknott Scratchknott This cool plug-in first came out about five years ago, but was restricted to 32-bit Windows hosts.…

Based on neural networks and machine learning, is PreTube intelligent enough to know exactly what your tracks should sound like? Probably not, but interesting nonetheless. Accentize PreTube Artificial intelligence is making its way into more and more audio plug-ins, most notably mastering tools like Zynaptiq Intensity, adaptive EQs like smart:EQ live or Equalizer 4 and audio restoration software like Accentize’s own DeRoom. But in a preamp simulation? Absolutely! Accentize PreTube is an AI-based tube preamp simulator and saturator. Instead of fixed algorithms based on physical models of hardware components, it uses artificial intelligence to predict what analogue circuits would do to any given signal. According to the developer, PreTube utilizes artificial neural networks that have been trained to precisely emulate the behaviour of analogue hardware. We don’t know which hardware was used for training, but the plug-in includes three preamp models: Ghost, Hybrid and Vintage. They can produce anything from subtle saturation to vintage overdrive, the company says. The controls are very simple. In addition to the model selector, the plug-in has a drive knob, mix and gain sliders and a mono button. As neural networks are notoriously power-hungry, Accentize has also included a high quality button. This lets you switch between a lower quality mode and the real deal, so you can reduce the burden on your CPU while mixing and then switch to high quality for the final render. However, Accentize says that the algorithms are “highly optimized” to go easy on your CPU, so you may not need it after all. It’s a very interesting concept and if it delivers good-sounding results, we’re sure to…

Moog has just announced a remodelled Subharmonicon that it will take you on an adventure of sequences spiralling through six-tone subharmonic chords and organic patterns. Subharmonicon They say it’s dead easy to use although, to be honest, it doesn’t look or sound like it. It has two VCOs, four Subharmonic Oscillators, two 4-step Sequencers and four Rhythm Generators. It will produce a “rich harmonic kaleidoscope” that turns everything on its head. The inspiration came from the experimental electronic music of the 1930s and 1940s. Joseph Schillinger’s mathematical systems for musical composition and the Mixtur-Trautonium, which employed a series of subharmonic oscillators to generate electronic undertones, and the Rhythmicon capable of sounding multiple harmonically related polyrhythm generators simultaneously. You can read all about that on the Moog website. So what is it? It’s a semi-modular polyrhythmic synthesizer that uses mathematical ratios to tune its Subharmonic Oscillators and control the timing of its Rhythm Generators. The maths ensures that the tuning and timing remain somehow coherent and musical. The tuning comes from the two regular VCOs and so generates these interesting chord shapes.  Each VCO runs two of the Sub-Oscillators and the intervals created are in relation to that VCO. You can keep things together through quantization to multiple scales and tunings or let it run free form. The chord shapes are animated with the two 4-step sequencers which are clocked by the Rhythm Generators to create layers of timings and rhythms and all sorts. Then get to work on the envelopes, the Ladder Filter and VCA through which the oscillators travel paraphonically to blur the lines between pads and percussion, noise and melody. Subharmonicon has a…

Apple just released Logic Pro X 10.5, the update we previewed a few weeks ago. It’s the biggest update to the macOS DAW since the introduction of the Alchemy synth. Here’s everything new that producers will be sinking their teeth into… Live Loops Loops, samples and recordings now live in a new musical grid that lets you perform spontaneously and come up with arrangements to record into the timeline. The feature couples with Remix FX, which is a collection of performance effects like Bitchrusher, Filter, Gater and Repeater. The Logic Remote app for iPhone and iPad comes particularly handy here, as it enables multi-touch control over both Live Loops and Remix FX. So your iOS device becomes a de-facto controller! Neat. Sampler & Quick Sampler The EXS24 sampler is now reborn in two incarnates: Sampler and Quick Sampler. The user interface is completely new, but the essential functionality is all there, complete with backwards compatibility. While Sampler is great at mapping and effecting complex sample instruments and patches, Quick Sampler is where you go to to turn any individual sound into an instrument. You are able to import any sound from within Logic, Finder, Voice Memos, or record directly into Quick Sampler. Then trim, loop and play the result as well as adjust basic sound shaping controls. Step Sequencer & Drum Synth Apple turned its eyes onto beat creators with the addition of Step Sequencer, Drum Synth and a renovated Drum Machine Designer. The Step Sequencer is a colorful pattern-based sequencer with detailed control over note velocity, repeate, gate, skip, playback direction and randomization. Drum Synth is Ultrabeat’s little brother whose sounds can…

Roland has broken free of the confines of their history and takes everything forward into the world of ZENOLOGY and it could be very exciting. ZENOLOGY It’s the latest innovation from Roland which pulls the technology out of their still-not-quite-with-us Jupiter-X and realises it in software form. What starts off as a rather dull-looking hyper-preset virtual instrument quickly gathers pace into something very different. I didn’t get it at first, but I think I get what they’re doing. They are taking all their old synths and virtual versions and pushing them onto a new synthesis platform that will push them into deliciously unrecognisable places. It’s a triumph or a tragedy depending on how you feel about the purity of their back catalogue. What is ZENOLOGY? ZENOLOGY is an expandable plug-in version of the ZEN-Core Synthesis System. ZEN-Core is based on discrete synth voices—each containing a flexible oscillator, filter, amplifier, dual step-LFOs, and lush effects. It mixes multiple synthesis types, combining vintage Roland oscillators and filters with PCM waves capable of PCM-SYNC and cross-modulation. Layer up to four voices in a single tone for rich, complex sounds, both classic and modern. So it’s a huge synthesis engine, right? Yes, and it’s already an immense source of sounds. But over time they are releasing new synthesis algorithms and expansions that will expand its potential in all sorts of directions. This will include all their fabulous old synths like the Jupiter-8, Juno-106, SH-101 and JX-8P, but here’s the crucial bit – they are not arriving in the traditional GUI. They are being reworked into a new unified interface which in one fell swoop ditches the confines of the historical…

MIXROOM from Mastering The Mix is another AI-assisted EQ with algorithms that guide you through better EQ adjustments. It also has a user interface quite unlike anything we’ve seen before. MIXROOM – Intelligent EQ plug-in Like its AI-powered brethren, MIXROOM can analyse audio and show you example EQ adjustments to help you start EQ-ing. There are genre and channel-specific EQ target suggestions as well. Reference tracks can be imported to create custom EQ targets and level matching for the output gain helps when comparing dry and processed signal. Additionally, ‘Smart Bands’ can be inserted, matching the target EQ curve and giving you further starting points. The user interface is novel, presenting frequency bands as big blocks of color that you can move up and down, adjusting their amplitude. This way, you get an immediate visualisation of how the frequency spectrum is laid out and which frequency ranges are dominant. The interface is also fully resizable. Indeed a pleasant sight for those tired producer eyes! Price and availability MIXROOM is up for an affordable GBP 49 and a free trial version can be downloaded for testing. It’s available in VST 2, VST3, AU, and AAX formats for Windows and Mac computers.

Is this the killer app VR has been waiting for? SynthSpace Probably not, is the short answer, but that doesn’t stop this being a fascinating project for people who have invested in the hardware to make VR a reality in their own leisure time. The idea is to model a modular synthesizer in Virtual Reality and make it as real as possible. In the demonstration you have a rack of modules patched together with the ability to move plugs about, repatch and move knobs with your VR magic controllers. Markus, the man behind the VR googles, says that VR frees us from screens, mice and keyboards and lets us use our hands again and have an entire room to play in. I guess that’s why we all like hardware. But assuming that your access is via software then this could give you something approaching a hardware experience without having to invest all that money in buying actual modules. He also talks about “magical bits” that are not available in the real world…. although I’m not sure what they are. In the video there’s a floating virtual oscilloscope display which you wouldn’t normally expect to see in the real world. SynthSpace At the moment Markus is looking for investment via Patreon to move to the next level of development and hopefully bring some people along with him. As it stands it looks pretty convincing, in fact, the modules look amazing but it will be whether the sound lives up to the usability that will be the key. Markus’…

Stock your plug-in folder with these new additions: LightPadSynth, TruPressor and TUBA. You’ll find lots and lots of free plug-ins in our huge archives. Uhhyou LightPadSynth Developer Uhhyou is back with his latest creation. Back in March, he released CubicPadSynth, a very interesting wavetable synth based on the PadSynth algorithm. LightPadSynth is a more CPU-efficient version of the software synth. According to Uhhyou, it uses linear instead of cubic interpolation. The pitch modulation feature has been omitted in favour of a delay for each voice. Judging by the demo video, LightPadSynth is capable of some very unique textures. LightPadSynth is available for Windows, Linux and macOS (64 bit only). Get LightPadSynth here Truality Creation TruPressor TruPressor by Truality Creation is a one-knob dynamic processor. The developer says that the processor is “tuned by ear” and “enhances an audio signal in a rather subtle and refined way”. Like RealSpread 64, TruPressor features an extremely simple GUI with literally just one knob, which makes it very easy to use. There’s an auto level compensation feature, and Truality says that TruPressor will enhance nuances in harmonically rich content. TruPressor is a VST3 plug-in for Windows (64 bit only). Download TruPressor here Analog Obsession TUBA Analog Obsession has become a regular in our freeware posts, and for good reason: The developer keeps releasing beautiful and good-sounding free plug-ins. TUBA is a tube mic and line preamp simulation with a 2-band EQ. Analog Obsession says that it isn’t meant to be a 1:1 model of any particular hardware unit or console, but rather…

With its simple controls, the plug-in delivers quick results with a minimum of effort, MIA Labs says. A good thing? You decide! MIA Laboratories 980 SPARK Only a few weeks after the 358 Enhancer, MIA Laboratories has released its next plug-in. The developer says that 980 SPARK is designed to “enrich and thicken” your tracks with a few easy adjustments. It consists of compressor, EQ and saturator stages, which have been stripped down to the bare minimum of controls. According to MIA Labs, the simple GUI is optimized for a quick workflow that still offers flexibility. The compressor features an intensity knob, three time modes (fast, medium and slow) and adjustable make-up gain. The colour module is an EQ with six preset curves, which were “carefully developed”, MIA Laboratories says. There’s also an amount knob that lets you dial in how much EQ is applied. Finally, the signal reaches the saturation stage. This has six algorithms to choose from, and you can set it to soft, medium or hard. The drive knob controls the amount of saturation. According to the developer, the saturator uses 8x oversampling. The plug-in also offers overall input and output level controls and meters. MIA Labs says that 980 SPARK is especially well suited for electronic music production and sound design, but also works well for acoustic instruments. As with all similar processors that use simplified controls for complex tasks, it’s going to be hit or miss: either it works for a particular track or instrument, or…

He has even added a little picture of each one to make it easier to navigate when using. The fact that the icons match the originals is a great touch and makes this mod super useful.

We all know who and what they really are, but sometimes it can get rather frustrating trying to remember which one is which. Thankfully, Ben Vesco has done all of the hard work, allowing the rest of us to see the real names for all the virtual pedals and amps in Line 6’s systems. The updates are for the following systems POD Go Edit HX Edit Helix Native Check out the video below for the full instructions on how to install these updated files and follow the link below to grab your free copy of them.

Melodya generates, edits and transforms melodies and rhythms https://ingovogelmann.net/2020/05/04/melodya-generates-edits-and-transforms-melodies-and-rhythms/?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=melodya-generates-edits-and-transforms-melodies-and-rhythms https://ingovogelmann.net/2020/05/04/melodya-generates-edits-and-transforms-melodies-and-rhythms/#respond Mon, 04 May 2020 13:26:30 +0000 https://ingovogelmann.net/?p=16680 Struggling to write a decent melody? Developer Music Developments has a fresh new release out – Melodya. Melodya (Melody) is a plug-in dedicated to generating and editing melodies, motifs and anything else resembling a hook. It’s available on an introductory offer – USD 39 until May 15. Melodya – advanced melody editor and generator With its reasonably simple interface, Melodya offers fairly deep control over the melodies you work on. First up is a Motive editor (“motif”? – Ed.) and a one-click melody generator with rhythm and shape options. The developers have included three rhythm generators, including a “Modern” one suitable for contemporary styles like EDM. A special rhythm mapping algorithm makes it possible to separate rhythm and shape for dedicated control over the two. A pack of melodic and rhythmic transformations provides a starting point with progressions and structures you will hear in well-known melodies from Western harmony. You can also import MIDI files and split them into melody sections to edit or regenerate. As a final touch, the user interface is fully customizable in terms of colors, fonts, and keyboard shortcuts used. The interface is simple to get around, especially if you have used software like Guitar Pro. You get scale, tempo, time signature and octave controls up top, a big ol’ piano roll at the bottom and a metric ton of variation buttons. There’s also a Randomize button that comes up with melody and rhythm on the spot, so you can start editing and transforming a new melody right away. Price and availability Melodya is on an introductory sale until May 15, priced USD 39 down from USD 49. A free demo can be downloaded for testing.…

Like most synths by beatassist.eu, Doremi is geared towards dance music, so it offers a trance gate that syncs to your DAW and has adjustable note lengths and swing.

Based on an emulation of ECC83 and EL34 tubes, it offers two channels: high gain and clean. The high gain channel has a drive tone control which cuts or boosts the highs. Quite ironically, the clean channel features a dirty switch. Both channels have 3-band EQs and there’s an overall presence knob and a reverb with two modes. Tonedeluxe V2 comes with 12 cab models.

The MIDI mapping, especially the “stacking issue”, is a pain in the ass. When it comes to point 2 I had a conversation with the support. Remarkable: I never got a quicker support reply. What leaves me in mixed emotions is the content of it. Here’s my message: I can’t seem to find the “Input Converter” in SSD5.5. I’d love to keep the mapping for every kit loaded, so that I can switch between drum sets, but keep the samples where they were. Then I can’t figure out how to “unstack” samples… well, in all honesty: why do they get stacked by default in the first place? Would be great if they’d get somewhat logically mapped to their own MIDI notes (like a second kick drum close to the 1st one etc.). It’s very inconvenient to have a second hi-hat placed 3 octaves above the first one. That makes drum programming a nightmare. I want to build a huge drum set with 2 different kick drums, 2 different hi-hats etc., and not run 2 instances of SSD5.5 in one project, just to be able to have this. I know, I can assign every single sample to another note (MIDI Learn), but to do all of this by hand is, as mentioned, a nightmare. Also, what’s the difference between “User (not loaded)” and “Reserved (not loaded)”, and what happens when I put, say, a kick drum on a “Bell left (not loaded)”? Will the left bell WHEN LOADED then stack up with the kick drum? As said, I want to build a…

The new firmware brings RTA functionality along with more recording channels, and additional features. You’ll have to cough up some hard cash if you want the tasty new FX units though… New RTA on all SQ Series Channels V1.5 Firmware Update Allen & Heath launched its successful SQ series digital mixing desks at the tail end of 2017, rounding out the range with the flagship SQ7 just a few months later. Now, Allen & Heath drops a big SQ firmware update to V1.5 firmware update. So what’s new? Is this a must-have firmware update or is it all a bit meh? Taking a read through Allen & Heath’s release notes, we can’t help but feel slightly underwhelmed. But there are a few items that are noteworthy, valuable upgrades: RTA function updated to permit channel based analysis with new display functionality 32 channel record/playback from SQ Drive now permitted HPF and LPF filter now available on all processing channels Availability of new FX Processing add-ons New Free Stuff! What’s the Problem? We’re left feeling underwhelmed and moreover a little disappointed by the V1.5 firmware update, for a few reasons. First and foremost, a lot of this functionality should have been available from day one. Isn’t RTA analysis on a channel by channel basis a given on any digital desk nowadays? That we’ve had to wait for HPF and LPF functions on all channels seems a bit of a stretch. Desks of this type are often employed to do double duty as FOH and monitor mixer, where a HPF is a bare minimum requirement…

Our buds at Plugin Boutique launched a spring sale on all Soundtoys products – still some of the finest effects money can buy. The discounts are deep, reaching up to 80% for individual plug-ins and 39% for the Soundtoys 5 Plugin Bundle. The people in charge at Soundtoys are former Eventide heads, so if you know what this name stands for, then you know where the Soundtoys stuff comes from.Free trials are on offer, so you have a perfect opportunity to test drive classics like the EchoBoy delay/echo and Decapitator saturator and compressor. Soundtoys 5 Plugin Bundle The big mama of this offer includes all 21 Soundtoys plug-ins and requires no dongle for activation. An iLok account and the iLock License Manager are required for authorisation, both available for free. Normally, the bundle costs USD 499 which is still reasonable considering what you are getting. But a big ol’ discount is what it is, all things considered! Soundtoys Effect Rack The newest addition to the Soundtoys line-up is the Effect Rack. It lets you line-up FX chains from a single plug-in instance, rather than horsing around a chain of individual plug-ins. A global mix control lets you blend the effected chain with the dry signal and a Recycle control lets you feed back the effect rack output into its input for experimental modulations and sounds. Additionally, the Effect Rack includes as many as 67 presets utilizing its capabilities and providing a jump-off point. All in all, great stuff! If I didn’t have a bunch of taxes to sort out, I’d jump onto this hardcore. More information Soundtoys…

This amp emulation was created in collaboration with the manufacturer Orange, and gives you the familiar sound of the Tiny Terror modelled in your DAW.  AmpliTube Orange Tiny Terror Amp Sim IK Multimedia wants to add some subscribers to its newsletter, apparently. The Italian software and hardware company is offering new subscribers the AmpliTube Orange Tiny Terror amp simulation for free. As long as you sign up for IK’s newsletter, that is… IK says the Tiny Terror amp sim gives you sounds from “clean/bluesy crunch to Punk and Classic Rock”, so quite a wide range of crunch and drive tones. We expect that the tones will be pretty darn close to the original amp. It’s part of the AmpliTube Orange set of emulations, which includes eight Orange amps: AD 200, Dual Terror, OR 50, Thunderverb 200, Tiny Terror, AD30TC, Rockerverb 50 and the OR-120. Nine matching cabs are on offer, too. The company obviously hopes to entice you to demo the Orange sound and spend some cash on the other models. To use the Tiny Terror, you need to download the Custom Shop app, which is free of charge. This even contains another 24 bits of virtual analogue gear that you can use right away, for free. The Custom Shop has both standalone and plug-in versions, so you can use it inside or independently of your DAW of choice.

It’s evolved and it’s ready to go. Wing Pinger The look as certainly changed moving from something industrial towards something more beautiful and instrument-like. The black and gold are very subdued and the growth of an entire touch-plate keyboard out the side is unexpected but very welcome. It’s based on a pair of 4-pole resonate lowpass filters surrounded by a network of comparators, pulse converters, binary counters, and shift registers. You don’t so much play it as place yourself in the cockpit of a sound-generating machine that would explode if you didn’t keep fiddling with things. The “Pinger” aspect is to do with pinging the filters to create the sound. The response is very organic, moving from noise to plucks to percussion held somewhere on the edge of chaos while being musical. But only if you want, otherwise just let the chaos flow through the cross-modulation and avenues of feedback.

A great new resource for live artists seeking an income stream? Or is it another shameless corporate cash-in, exploiting already cash-starved creatives? Facebook Live Updates A raft of updates was announced this month to Facebook, along with new features to help you live stream and connect more easily. What jumped out at us were the new Facebook Live and Facebook Event features. It seems you’ll now be able to mark your event pages as “online-only” and in addition to this, add a Facebook Live stream. What we see as most controversial is that pages will now be able to charge for access to live events: “To support creators and small businesses, we plan to add the ability for Pages to charge for access to events with Live videos on Facebook”. Yup, Facebook has effectively now moved into the ticketing business for live shows! The COVID-19 pandemic has undoubtedly forced a lot of us to seek alternative revenue streams; losing income from traditional live shows has hurt many of us hard. Clearly a lot of artists have turned to live streaming in order to publicise their music and promote their music. So I get money from my livestreams? That’s great right? Here’s the crunch. So far, Facebook hasn’t told us what percentage cut they’ll be taking per paid event. It seems extremely unlikely to us that they’ll be offering their platform and streaming bandwidth for free. After all, they are a business! We wait with bated breath on whether this will be a great potential income stream for all of us, or if it’s…

Take a break and play a bit of Pong – in your DAW! Retro Pong by Lunatic Audio is a plug-in that recreates the classic 80’s game. And for the time being, it’s completely free! Retro Pong – play in your DAW! Retro Pong is a complete adaption of the classic arcade game, which even includes three difficulty levels. The game is controlled from your regular or MIDI keyboard and has you playing against the DAW or a Player 2 as your oponent, along with a deadline. It’s a classic, simple game of Pong with colorful retro visuals and nice, responsive controls. If you haven’t even heard about Pong (you must be young!), it’s like a very simple game of tennis where your racket is at the bottom and the opponent’s racket is up top. In between, there’s an empty field along which the ball travels. So the ball is hit back and forth and increasing speeds until one side loses. And then comes another round. The original game debuted decades ago on arcade machines and has spawned hundreds of remakes and reimaginations. It’s an all-time classic, not unlike tetris or Arkanoid. Remember Arkanoid? It’s pretty much a revision of Pong! Availability Retro Pong is free with the option to donate to the developer right from its website. The plug-in is available in AU, VST3 and AAX formats for Windows and macOS computers. It should run under any modern DAW or plug-in host, so have fun!

EndeavourFX Pantastic offers a fresh new take on L/R panning https://ingovogelmann.net/2020/04/29/endeavourfx-pantastic-offers-a-fresh-new-take-on-l-r-panning/?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=endeavourfx-pantastic-offers-a-fresh-new-take-on-l-r-panning https://ingovogelmann.net/2020/04/29/endeavourfx-pantastic-offers-a-fresh-new-take-on-l-r-panning/#respond Wed, 29 Apr 2020 10:33:18 +0000 https://ingovogelmann.net/?p=16598 The science of psychoacoustics lets clever developers play all sorts of tricks on our unsuspecting ears. Pantastic by EndeavourFX is one fine little example. It’s a panning plug-in that aims to make typical stereo L/R panning sound much more realistic. Pantastic – realistic panning plug-in In the example given by EndavourFX, try panning a mono drum set hard left and the guitar hard right. You know, like those old The Doors recordings. Now how does that sound? It surely doesn’t sound like you have a drummer to your left and the guitar player is in the right corner of the room and they are jamming hard. That’s because convential panning, explains the developer, only adjusts the volume of left and right signals. In actuality, to be able to localize sound properly, you also need time, phase, and timbre. Pantastic recreates these phenomena to provide a novel effect and question all your regular panning decisions. The effect is especially notable on headphones, as a pair of cans delivers the left signal to your left ear and the right signal to your right ear. You are listening with only one year per signal while humans are meant to hear with both! So Pantastic, with just a single knob, and three options, simulates all that important psychoacoustic stuff. Three modes Pantastic has three panning modes. Realistic is the most natural and sounds great and headphones, but it compromises mono compatibility. Traditional is basic panning which is good for the mid and side signals but it doesn’t sound like it should. Pantastic is where the prior modes meet in the middle for a good compromise between realism and mono compatibility. Price and availability Priced…

Mother-32 2.0 Owning a Mother-32 makes you feel like you’ve entered the world of proper synthesizers. It has a vibe and flavour to it that reassures any sense of purchase anxiety in the knowledge that you made a sound decision. It does everything you expect a quality synth to do and ignites a love for simple subtractive synthesis and an appreciation of that sound. Thankfully the great aspects of the synth carry you through the slightly frustrating experience of the sequencer. The sequencer is usable, functional but it can be hard and often needs regular referrals back to the manual to interpret the lights and button combinations required to do simple tasks. The updates to the sequencer haven’t reworked it into a magically intuitive system but they added functionality that will lessen the pain and make it a more interesting place to play. Oh, and there’s an auto-save mode which is truly the best thing ever. Directional The big creative improvement is in sequencer directions. You can now fire the sequence forwards, backwards, in a pendulum and randomly. There are new tempo modes for external clock including step-advance and selecting a step based on voltage. They’ve added new Clock divisions (you can literally just turn the tempo knob to change the sequencer speed relative to the clock) and new Swing modes. Along with the ability to auto-save the current pattern you can also “write protect” a pattern so that you can’t over-write it. This is great for improvising in performance without ruining your starting point. And also you…

The Erae Touch consists of 18 touch points with support for Midi Polyphonic Expression (MPE) and MIDI 2.0. The innovative controller lets you freely assign parameters to each area so that you can control both notes and parameters with touch. All areas are lit in full color, too, making for a very sleek and visually impressive controller. Erae Touch Controller The Erae mapping software. Comparisons to the Roli Blocks units are somewhat justified. Visually, the Erea is reminiscent of an oversized installation of several Blocks controllers. However, just like the size, the possibilities are bigger as well. Mapping the controller is done by software which takes your templates to the hardware. The mapping possibilities are comprehensive. You are able to turn the touch areas into faders, buttons, note fields, or a plain X / Y pad. So you can cover almost any aspect of your typical virtual instrument just by touch. Like a modern piece of equipment, the Erae connects over USB-C and features continous modulation to ensure very low latency operation. On the hardware itself, you can quickly recall presets, templates, and other settings. So the Erae is mean to be played live, not just a fancy studio tool. Price and availability The Erae Touch is scheduled for pre-order from September 2020. It will be financed via Kickstarter. The pre-order price for backers is EUR 700. The retail price once the unit is ready to hit stores will be EUR 800. The package will include the MPE-capable software synthesizer Nylon, made by German developer Wave Casual. It’s a very interesting synth with…

Satura: free plug-in with three types of saturation (and a story) https://ingovogelmann.net/2020/04/28/satura-free-plug-in-with-three-types-of-saturation-and-a-story/?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=satura-free-plug-in-with-three-types-of-saturation-and-a-story https://ingovogelmann.net/2020/04/28/satura-free-plug-in-with-three-types-of-saturation-and-a-story/#respond Tue, 28 Apr 2020 10:03:17 +0000 https://ingovogelmann.net/?p=16573 I just love stories that begin moody and end up with a free saturation plug-in (plus a happy developer). The story of Satura is kind of like that. After spending who knows how much time on the plug-in and a selling platform, Satura’s developer gave it away on Reddit, stating that “competition was too da*n high”. However, the Reddit community welcomed the offering with open arms and insisted that the developer add a donation button. So there’s a cool little story about how human kindness helped a struggling developer come up with a reasonable “business model”, so to say. Donationware is awesome and must be supported! Satura – three band saturation plug-in With just three knobs, Satura is able to coax digital distortion, lo-fi tape delay and analog transistor saturation courtesy of a modeled Moog ladder filter. The goal, says the developer, is capturing the essential grit of the 80’s sound. As with all competent saturators, this one is capable of subtlety at gentle settings and complete overdriven havok when pushed to the extremes. Availability Satura exists in Mac AU, Mac VST3, and Windows VST 3 formats. It’s completely free to download and smash stuff with. It was only after the Reddit community requested that the developer added a PayPal donate button, so donations are always encouraged. More Saturation plug-ins Saturation plug-ins and hardware have been very popular releases as of late. There’s seemingly no end to how much producers want to characterize and mangle their pristine digital audio. So check out just a glimpse of some the recent developments on the matter: VocalMint Saturator & Punchy Worm Denise God Mode multi-band saturator Undertow FX Box dub saturator The Dust…

Sound Magic Classical Guitar Classical Guitar models a Kremona Solea, an expertly crafted nylon string guitar. It truly blurs the line between sample and modeling technology, and great lengths were taken to create this bundle of more than 2,300 samples. Using hybrid modeling technology, Classical Guitar works equally well as a sample library or as a virtual instrument. As an instrument played in real-time you can switch between over 15 guitar techniques including vibrato, legato, glissando, and more. Timbre can also be changed in real-time to further emulate the intricacies of playing an actual guitar. It’s available for Windows/Mac 64-bit in VST and AU formats. More Information and purchasing Klevgrand Productions Ting One of the more unique sample packs available, Ting takes its percussive sounds from ordinary household objects and acoustic spaces. In total there are 12 different sounds, each one multi-sampled for use in music production and sound design. Some of the sounds include things like hand claps, silverware, car keys, finger snaps, and more. There are also on-board effects like EQ and compression, six reverbs, and five room impulses. The room sounds include such unique spaces as a kitchen, home office, and closet. It’s a very novel idea that has utility in all kinds of music and sound design applications.

Polish your mix with these freeware tools! Introducing LALA, Blanka and RealSpread 64. Looking for more free plug-ins? Our archive is the place! Analog Obsession LALA Analog Obsession is one of the most productive developers of free plug-ins out there, and here’s one of his newest creations. LALA is of course an emulation of the famed Teletronix LA-2A Leveling Amplifier, something the developer says many people have asked him to do. But Analog Obsession hasn’t stopped there. LALA offers some additional features like an external sidechain input, a 3-band sidechain filter and a mix knob. It also sports a gorgeous GUI. Analog Obsession LALA is available for Windows and macOS in VST, VST3 and AU formats. Get LALA here AudioFB Blanka Blanka by Audiofusion:Bureau is an exciter plug-in. It offers two switchable low cut filters at 75 and 105 Hz and three knobs for adjusting the sound. The first one is labeled “Weitght” and they point out that it’s not a typo – I assume it’s meant to be read as a portmanteau of “weight” and “tight”. The others are Clarity and Punch, and there’s also an output level knob and a VU meter. The developer says that Blanka works well on drums in combination with their Fatudo plug-in. Blanka is available for Windows (VST) and macOS (VST, VST3, AU, AAX). Download Blanka here Truality Audio RealSpread 64 RealSpread 64 by Truality Audio is a stereo spreader plug-in.

AudioGridder by Andreas Pohl is a networked solution that lets you offload DSP processing to another computer, giving your main machine room to breathe. And here’s the kicker: The software is free! AudioGridder DSP server If you’re constantly maxing out your DAW computer with plug-ins and virtual instruments, one way to give your CPU a break is to invest in DSP hardware from companies like Universal Audio and Antelope Audio. While these solutions are popular, they tend to limit your choice of plug-ins and force you into closed ecosystems. AudioGridder is a new alternative that lets you turn another computer into a DSP server over the network. And best of all, the Mac software is free and open source. Like similar commercial solutions such as Vienna Ensemble, AudioGridder consists of a plug-in for your main machine and a server software for the remote computer. The plug-in runs inside your DAW software and serves as a host for VST3 and/or AU plug-ins. It talks to the remote server over the network. Any plug-ins loaded in the AudioGridder host plug-in are processed by the server, which then returns the processed audio to your DAW. While a wired network is obviously the best choice for this setup, the developer says that it’s even possible to pull this off using a wireless network, provided it has low latency and enough bandwidth. While you can of course invest in a dedicated machine like a Mac mini for your DSP server, AudioGridder also seems like a great way to extend the life of an older computer that you’re not using as your main DAW…

God Mode: creative multi-band saturation plug-in by Denise Audio https://ingovogelmann.net/2020/04/24/god-mode-creative-multi-band-saturation-plug-in-by-denise-audio/?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=god-mode-creative-multi-band-saturation-plug-in-by-denise-audio https://ingovogelmann.net/2020/04/24/god-mode-creative-multi-band-saturation-plug-in-by-denise-audio/#respond Fri, 24 Apr 2020 19:17:25 +0000 https://ingovogelmann.net/?p=16527 Ever so colorful, developer Denise Audio released a new saturation plug-in called God Mode. This piece of divine divinity uses a “push-pull” technology to let you saturate specific frequencies in your track. God Mode Said technology is inspired by the good old Pultec EQ passive tube equalizer. This 1950’s era equalizer famously pushes gain for the desired frequency range into its tube circuit to pull it back again, smoothing out the frequency reponse and adding tube warmth. God Mode, says Denise, is like a modern plug-in approach to this method. A graphic parametric equalizer lets you dial in an EQ shape to choose the frequency ranges you want affected. Therefore, God Mode is a multi-band saturation and distortion plug-in. You can follow by adding simulated tape distortion, rectification or fuzz. The tape distortion is borrowed from Denise’s Bad Tape plug-in, more specifically the Tape Analog VM algorithm which emulates the hysteresis of old tape machines. The EQ filters are all linear phase for purity of sound and can be used in parallel or to dial in a dry/wet balance that’s perfectly in-phase. You can also toy with the dry/wet signals by panning them independently. This is how you can widen the stereo image and also add a high-end boost. Moreover, any signal can be sidechained to the plug-in to modulate the amount of tape distortion. One track can distort the other, accomplishing rhythmic distortion effects. Price and availability All in all, that’s a quite accomplished and fun saturator we have here! God Mode is on sale for EUR 39, down from EUR 69. With the purchase, you also get the Slappy delay plug-in for free. God Mode and all Denise…

Flame Mäander We originally saw this at NAMM last year. It looks stunning in the white and red and that 12-band analogue filter bank running along the bottom – hard to miss. Internally it’s a polyphonic wavetable synthesizer with noise and sockets for external processing through the filter bank. It has a polyphonic sequencer track of up to 4 voices, 14 mono tracks for the external input and noise and filtering for each channel. The 2.0 update adds a further 39 wavetables and more will be coming. They’ve also added in an additional FM sound algorithm and you are now able to detune 8 voices for massively fat chorus effects. The update is free to all users and should be available soon from the website.

The SFC-8 is everything you need to control a software Jupiter-8 or boutique hardware ones. SFC-8 Of course you can use any old MIDI controller if you want to control a software synth with more than a mouse but SoundForce offers something far more elegant and engaging to the point where you could fool yourself into thinking it’s a real synth. The SFC-8 looks great, compact without making everything too small, and it’s immediately “Jupiter”. It’s made of metal with walnut cheeks and all the knobs are on wobble-free metal shafts. It’s designed to work perfectly with both the Arturia JUP-8V and the RolandCloud Jupiter-8 plug-in. Using a control app you can have complete control over the mapping and layout so you can absolutely control other synths or hardware however you like – it’s just a MIDI controller. And to help with that it’s got MIDI DIN as well as USB and you can use them simultaneously. Soundforce SFC-8 The SFC-8 should be available towards the end of the year and the price is not yet set.

Wavetables Novation’s Peak and Summit synthesizers combine digitally controlled Oxford oscillators with an analogue signal chain and filters. Along with the traditional waveforms each oscillator has 43 wavetables of 5 waveforms per row making for some nice hybrid sounds. Now they’ve opened up the wavetable oscillators to some new content via their Components browser-based editor. The new Wavetable Editor lets you draw your own wave shapes and audition them in real-time. Or you can import audio files or wavetables to be used as the oscillator waveform. Along with the ability to generate your own vegetables Novation has included a bunch of space-themed audio from the NASA sound library: “Get inspired and expand your sound design possibilities by generating waveforms from recordings of human space exploration and otherworldly environments.” And there’s exclusive wavetable content from producers Noisia. The Wavetable Editor is free to use, just connect your synth and head to the Components webpage. Make sure you pick up the latest firmware for your Peak or Summit first.

The developer is offering 50% discounts on many plug-ins and virtual instruments for a limited time. All instruments from the V Collection are on sale, as are the individual effect plug-ins from the FX Collection. Here’s a great opportunity for some serious plug-in stockpiling! Arturia plug-ins on sale For many of us, staying home and making music is all we can do right now. To keep you happy and inspired, many developers are offering free or discounted music software. Arturia’s latest offer is quite generous: All individual instrument and effects plug-ins from the V Collection and FX Collection are on sale at half their regular prices. The Arturia Pigments 2 software synthesizer is also 50% off. The bundles are not on sale, but all the individual plug-ins are. Arturia’s emulations of many legendary synthesizers and electro-mechanical instruments have certainly helped to shape the way we think of software synths today. The French developer later expanded this concept to effects, with the Compressors, Delays, Preamps and Filters bundles and the FX Collection. Like the synths, the effects offer emulations of the original hardware, while adding some expanded functionality that’s only possible in a plug-in. Each plug-in comes with a huge collection of presets from renowned sound designers. If you like the sound and feel of Arturia’s software synths and effects, but don’t need the complete bundles, now is a great time to add some of the individual plug-ins to your collection. Price and compatibility Arturia’s instrument and effect plug-ins are on sale at 50% off at Plugin Boutique*. It’s best to act quickly, as this deal will expire on May…
