Free plug-ins from Soundhack

February 22, 2011 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

Soundhack’s Tom Erbe has released new versions of all of his plugins for Mac, in Audio Unit and VST forms.

The free plugins include:

  • +spectralcompand - Performs smooth timbral filtering. Can be used to tame resonant frequencies or for radical changes of tone. In expansion mode, +spectralcompand becomes a highly tunable broadband noise remover, capable of removing hiss, hum and machine noise, without damaging the original sound.
  • +morphfilter - Holds two filter shapes. These shapes are set by drawing, or by capturing the spectra from the incoming sound. You can morph between these two filters. +morphfilter’s depth control can change the strength of filtering, or even invert the filter for an “anti-filtered” sound.
  • +binaural - This filter places a sound at a specific position around the listener’s head. Use it with a reverb to create a virtual environment. When used with it’s LFO, +binaural can place various beats or parts of a loop in specific repeatable positions.
  • +spectralgate - A spectral version of the noise gate/ducker dynamics processor. Combines a noise gate/ducker and a multiband processor to give you a plugin that can used both as a frequency dependent gate or as a level dependent filter.
  • SoundHack Delay Trio – a group of three plugins derived from the same basic delay algorithm: a hermite interpolated delay line with variable modulation, and a feedback loop with dc blocking and saturation. Pitch shifting is achieved with a dual head crossfading delay (ala Eltro Tempophon/Dennis Gabor/Pierre Schaeffer phonogene) and is decidedly low-?. The saturating feedback also allows them to be great drone and noise generators.
  • +chebyshev - a distortion unit which uses various low-order chebyshev polynomials to add even or odd harmonic distortion.
  • +compand - a combined compressor/expander plugin. It has a softknee control as well as a switchable rms/peak level detector.
  • +decimate - bit depth and sample rate reduction for added aliasing and decimation noise. a very noisy plugin.
  • +matrix - a mid-side to left-right encoder and decoder. for mid-side microphone arrays, but also useful when needing to apply effects to only the center or the sides of a stereo mix.
  • +phasescope - the standard studio tool for seeing the phase relation between your left and right channels. also includes a bit meter.

POLYKEYS beta

February 13, 2011 · Posted in Uncategorized · 1 Comment 

PolyKeys by ASWAVE is a freeware Virtual Analog Polyphonic Softsynth Synthesizer and as been around since 2006 in beta form and is still updated for time to time. filled with a few presets that show the diversity of the vsti plugin and is capable of a who lot more sounds to create another true classic synth from the freeware world of vst plugins instruments and effects.
in this video i have tried to show the range of sounds that can be made with this synth classic, rather that make it sound musical.
please note
the most irrating thing about downloading this classic synth is that you have to add a websearch engine to your web browers as homepage or add to tabs before refreshing and downloading this plugin, i say except it and delete later on if you wish

Features/Limitations:

  • you can’t record patterns, only input them via mouse
  • 128-note polyphony
  • you can run as many pattern sequencers simultaneously as your CPU can handle
  • you can store as many patterns as you want per sequencer
  • while playing, transitions to the next pattern don’t occur until the current pattern is done playing
  • variable pattern length: 16, 32, 48 and 64 notes
  • variable note length: 16th note through whole note in 16th note steps
  • fixed note-on velocity 0×64
  • play/stop must be driven from an external MIDI source
  • MIDI clock must be from an external MIDI source
  • can drive any hardware or software MIDI device
  • can echo MIDI clock to the external MIDI device (for arpegio or whatever)
