I just found it a minute ago and did not try yet. But, the video demo already looks interesting, and there are still onlytwo days left to get it for free. For Mac and Windows:

Here another impressive demo:

Tutorial

It would be silly not to take this gift in time. Download here:https://www.arturia.com/arturia-festive-gift

yep definitely nice filter. but it has some quirks.and u have to install an arturia softwaremanager to register it properly, which is normally the dead end for me to either not install it or uninstall it soon after tests . but this one i´ll keep^^.

I really like Orion, it’s a sample based synth made using royalty free samples and it sounds absolutely awesome.

I also like the GM VASPsynths when I want some analogue warmth, they does not feature any digital filter or modulation effects. Instead, the samples feature the original real analog filters and chorus effects recorded straight from a vintage analog synthesizer.

Just found the Venn Audio plugs,

A super handy clipper. All necessary gain staging controls within the plug and multiple clip algos:

https://www.vennaudio.com/free-clip/

A nice channel Utility too, with peak and RMS meters and a lot of basic useful mixing stuff panning, widening, m/s etc:

They’ve also got a Haas delay that I’m yet to try

Oscarizor, has

  1. Spectrum analyser

  2. Stereo Spread analyser

  3. Tempo-synced waveform readout : Great for checking peaks while compressing. i.e. stray transients getting through that you may want to use a clipper on. Also nice for checking Kick tail lengths. Anything transient processing.

Free downloads are the blue buttons under the yellow purchase buttons for the payware version:

Similar to S(m)exoscope, though no tempo syncing, can be used as a second opinion:

DMG Track control,

another useful utility (panning, HPF, etc.)

Added feature of track delay. Means you can add ms delays to renoise group tracks:

  • a pretty unique ms panning mode where you can pan the mid signal separately from the side signal.

Nice set of Windows freebies here (or mac if used as reaper plugs). On KvR the limiter seems to get some good feedback but I`ve so far been trying out the Hybrid Bus Compressor which seems well worth having in the collection:

Neat little #freeware synth, with some unique features; very intuitive & yet simple to use: https://tesselode.itch.io/cynthia-micro

I don’t know if anyone’s heard of HELM VST, but it’s a nice open source synth for Mac/Win/Lin. It plays nice with Renoise, allowing us to control and automate parameters. I am able to get lots of big, modern sounds from it – on par with Tyrell N6. I supported the author with a small donation to keep development going, and would love it if a larger community got behind this app to push it forward.

PaulXStretch plugin

PaulXStretch – VST2/AU Plugin for extreme time stretching and other spectral processing of audio

This plugin is based on the PaulStretch algorithm/standalone app. (Paul’s Extreme Time Stretch.)

No manual or demonstration video exists at the moment, but some information follows :

The plugin is only suitable for radical transformation of sounds. It is not suitable at all for subtle time corrections and such. Ambient music and sound design are probably the most suitable use cases.

The plugin can either load an existing audio file from disk to process or it can capture audio from the plugin inputs. (The capture mode is started/stopped with the “Capture” parameter.)

The plugin will require the DAW audio engine to be running on the track it is inserted on. How that is achieved in various hosts is specific to those hosts. Some hosts will just immediately start running the plugin, in other hosts one may need to record/input monitor enable the track or something else needs to be done.

The plugin has lots of latency, that isn’t reported to the host currently. I will have to investigate later what, if anything, can be done about those issues.

I have tested that the plugin loads and runs in :

Windows : Reaper, Ableton Live Lite 9, FL Studio, JUCE plugin host. RENOISE

Mac Os : Reaper (VST), Ableton Live Lite 9 (VST), GarageBand (AU), Plogue Bidule (VST). RENOISE

Superexcited, as this is one of my all time favs; the vst werx ok for now, still needs some fixes.

There is an #offline version, too; which works perfectlyhttp://hypermammut.sourceforge.net/paulstretch/

Can anyone recommend a good non-sample based freeware 808 that doesnt need to go into program files?

I know paid ones that are good like nepheton ( http://d16.pl/nepheton ), or for 909 drumazon ( http://d16.pl/drumazon ) but I cant justify 99 euros cost.

Are there freeware 808s that can compare to that kind of quality ( not sample based ones )?


(GUEST:::El°HYM) #156

Actually indeed sample - based; yet also very good one:

Are there freeware 808s that can compare

I think you’re gonna have a really hard time finding a developer who’s willing to dedicate countless hours of their life to carefully studying, researching, and modelling the many intricacies and peculiarities of a classic piece of hardware like the TR-808, who doesn’t also want to be compensated fairly for their hard work.

So either cough up the dosh for a well-made plugin like AudioRealism Drum Machine which does the TR-606, TR-808, and TR-909 all in one convenient package, or one of the excellent plugins from D16 that you’re already aware of, or simply accept the fact that samples — of which there endless high quality packs to choose from — are the next best thing.

In my experience there isn’t really much middle ground to choose from in this particular area. There are a lot of shit and poorly recorded/edited sample packs, and a lot of shit half-arsed plugins churned out by noobs in SynthEdit, but really only a small handful of truly accurate quality options to choose from if you want authentic results.

You get what you pay for, and all that.

It’s just as good as the high end vst’s lke bazille ,

Maybe ur 14 soundcloud - followers caring more about ur #opinion. :yeah:

Just tried the ts 808 …( mentioned above )

The noise section in the snare doesn’t even have a decay parameter , which is normally the 'tone ’ parameter on the tr 808

On the plugin tone for the snare is just another tune parameter .

NOt really a good emulation
