MS EQ COMP – FREE Midside Compressor

MS EQ COMP – FREE Midside Compressor Internet Co. recently released a FREE mid-side equalizer and compressor plugin called simply MS EQ COMP. The plugin is available both for Windows and Mac OS platforms. It is a straightforward plugin in design and function which we’re quite grateful for, it’s part of what makes this such a quality plugin. The effect features a 3-band equalizer specifically for adjusting the center or the sides. If you aren’t interested in getting that type of processing you can link the modules in order to work in stereo by pressing a clearly labeled and easy to see button at the bottom of the plugin’s GUI. A bonus feature is a preset manager where you can save and recall your favorite presets. Internet Co. features this description on their website – MS EQ COMP can encode standard STEREO (left/right) signal to MS (middle and side) and add EQ …

Regrader – FREE Lo-Fi Delay from Igorski

Regrader – FREE Lo-Fi Delay from Igorski Igorski has released Regrader, a Lo-Fi Delay plugin, for free in VST format. We’ve covered Igorski’s tech before with an article on the VSTSID plugin he released a bit back and we’re excited to see what he has done this time! Regrader comes with a user interface reminiscent of an old Windows system that it has 5 sections – Echoes, Gravel, Horror, Warble, and Filter. The Echo section is the main control section for aspects of the delay like time, feedback, and mix. Gravel, Horror, and Warble all contribute to the effect’s more unique elements that will warrant crazy sounding results. Here’s what Igorski had to say about it, Regrader provides a delay effect in which the repeats degrade in various ways to provide a malevolent twist on the ears. Echoes disintegrate, are decimated, piercingly oscillate and are finally mangled into a sound reminiscent of a …

Diabolique – FREE Vintage Tape Emulation (Windows Only)

Diabolique – FREE Vintage Tape Emulation (Windows Only) In order to celebrate their 20 year anniversary, Ourafilms recently released  Diabolique, a FREE to download Reel-to-Reel Tape emulation VST plugin. The plugin was built to emulate 2 vintage tube reel to reel tape machines, the Revox F36 (theirs from 1962) and the Tandberg Model 3 (1958), represented in circuity 1 and 2 respectively. The developers had this to say about the plugin, Apart from their differences, here the question is maintenance: while the Revox has been kept in immaculate condition (but retaining all good vintage components), the Tandberg has never seen any maintenance having all its original components (including a tube set of Telefunkens that are all testing as new). This plugin can be used to warm up your sounds, to simulate tape multi-tracking and/or to dirty up your sounds, it depends on the way it is used. The original template simulates …

Mess around with the various settings and you’ve got a powerful compressor that puts out lots of different options. Here’s what the developer had to say, I’ve always wanted to do a compressor with …

Tuned Bandpass Filters – 12 Free Racks by Sound Author Tuned Bandpass Filters is a pay-what-you-want set of Ableton Live Racks made by Sound Author. Inside the pack is 12 different EQ-based effect racks each tuned to the 12 notes of the chromatic scale. The rack comes with the 8 macro knobs assigned to 8 harmonic octaves of the root note of the rack, with the effect you can get into some advanced harmonic filtering to get surgical with mixing or do some fine sculpting of a sound. Sound Author stated, “Tuned Bandpass Filters was designed for sound designers who are looking to create harmonic resonances without having to use a vocoder.” Each rack is labeled by the root note which is especially important given that the racks don’t have dry/wet knobs; because of that w recommend throwing the effect on a send bus.

That Guitar – FREE LoFi Hip-Hop Style Guitar Sample Pack

That Guitar – FREE LoFi Hip-Hop Style Guitar Sample Pack Electronic music producer Arrogant Beggar and Reddit user ThatguyTarlung recently dropped a post on reddit offering his fellow music makers a wonderful gift – a free sample pack featuring guitar samples designed for use in Lo-Fi Hip-Hop. Anyone familiar with the multiple Youtube channels dedicated to sleepy laid-back beats will recognize “That guitar”. Arrogant Beggar’s original post is copied below, Unless you have been living under a rock or have been avoiding Lo-Fi Hip-Hop radio stations like the plague (I wouldn’t blame you), you have probably heard “That guitar”. Jazzy electric chords that sound like they have been recorded via Polaroid pictures. Here’s my take on it. Featuring my very own “SILO” (Strat in look only) recorded in my bedroom through a knock-off USB interface. Processed by the finest fake-analog gear my money can by (so… mostly free stuff). Originally intended …
