    Celebrate Christmas with a brand new, incredible piece of dreamware for your studio. FREE until February 14, 2019* (reg. €99)

    From December 19, 2018 through February 14, 2019 you have the opportunity to add an incredible-sounding processor to your studio setup, completely free. Ceil features a powerful compressor - which can work as a general audio leveler or a full-blown dynamics destroyer - an incisive EQ section, pan and stereo spread controls, and a preamp.

    Ceil is based on a heavily modified British channel strip that we sampled at the end of 2017 during one of our official workshops - held at a studio near the lake of Como.

    Use Ceil on vocals, electric bass, percussions, drums, and more. It will simply leave you speechless.

    Do not forget to download our nice Xmas 2019 ' Ceilendar' from inside Aquarius as it also includes Ceil's user manual!

    How to get Ceil:

    That is quite simple. All you have to do is:

    • register an account on our website (if you haven't one yet)
    • download Aquarius - our download manager -
    • login to Aquarius and and click the 'Install' button next to Ceil
    • select the preferred plugin format for your DAW from the drop-down menu and click 'Install'

    For demo purposes and even beyond, there's no need to spend $ on plugins. As mentioned above, there are so many good options. Only buy the stuff you love . . . that's how it used to be with hardware and instruments, right? I would never . . . could never collect 50 or 60 guitars.

    GT Analyser: High resolution spectrum analyser

    [​IMG]

    Excellent low-end precision

    [​IMG]

    Huge amount of control

    [​IMG]

    GT Analyser
    High resolution spectrum analyser plugin with loads of control.

    GT Analyser is a stunning, high resolution spectrum analyser plug-in with loads of control to allow you to get the perfect view of your frequency domain.

    Settings
    Click the settings button in the top-left corner of the plug-in window to take control of the following settings:

    Decay time
    Controls how long it takes the signal to decay after a peak. Use longer decay times for a smoother signal, or shorter times for a more accurate signal.
    Hold time
    Controls how long peaks will stay at their maximum before decaying. Putting the hold time to the maximum value (10 seconds) will make the peaks hold forever.
    Channels selector
    Changes which channels are visible on the spectrum. Use the L and R option to get an idea of the stereo width of your sound, or use the average option to get a view of your sound as a whole.
    Ramp
    Tilts the signal one way or another (without changing the actual audio signal) to give a more natural look of the frequency content of the sound. Bass frequencies tend to show up as lounder in the signal so move the ramp down to account for this.
    Range
    Specifies the Decibel range of the spectrum. Set to a smaller range to get a better look at lounder frequencies, or set to a larger range to see the full extent of your sound.
    Block selector
    Changes the block size used to render the spectrum. Smaller blocks have less precision with lower frequencies but faster responce times. (Larger block sizes may also affect performance on slower machines).

    LabChirp - (standalone (SA))

    A program for creating sound effects for games, music, videos - whatever you want!
    A manual and some example sounds are included to get you started.

    Works on Windows (requires .NET Framework 2.0) and other platforms through Mono.

    Features
    • Multiple channels: Up to eight individual channels. All or any element of a channel can be copied to another.
    • Modulation: For vibrato and tremolo (pulsating variation in pitch and volume).
    • Envelopes: To shape everything the way you want it.
    • Waveforms: Make your own custom waveforms, or use any of the standard ones (sine, triangle, sawtooth, square, noise).
    • Effects: Add cool post-effects to your sound.
    • Customizable randomizer: For the lazy sound designer.
    • Customizable mutator: To randomize your sound slightly.
    • Batch save: If you are in a hurry and need a lot of sounds fast.
    Here is a demo in mp3 format showing all of the example sounds and some randomly generated sounds using different presets.

    Screenshots
    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    tcStretch
    tcStretch is a Windows VST 2.4 plug-in for time stretching, pitch shifting, and blurring. Time stretch can be up to 1 million times slower. Pitch shift is plus or minus one octave. Blurring blends nearby spectral material to make the output less static.

    Playback is sensitive to transients in the source material. Playback rate and blur amount are automatically adjusted according to the transient contour of the material being stretched. Playing transients at a faster rate than non-transients tends to make the output sound less obviously stretched. Playing transients more slowly than non-transients emphasizes the stretchiness [good when playing in reverse mode with highly transient material]. Adding blur brings in some subtle (or not so subtle) randomness which helps to keep the output less static.

    dumpster-fire
    THE SHIFTING NIGHTMARE
    Sometimes a track takes that dark turn.
    Every path leads ever deeper into desperation.
    Nothing is working, perhaps the well is dry.
    Delete it all. Salt the earth. Anything but this.
    Never far away is the thirst for cleansing fire.
    Undo has become a parasitic companion.
    Defeat is calling like a moth to the candle flame.
    Endure this manic force in resolute defiance.
    Strike the eldritch match of transformation.

    Anarchy Rhythms / Anarchy Effects

    [​IMG]

    Anarchy Rhythms
    is a hybrid between an effect and a drum machine. It takes an audio input and applies a user-controlled matrix of amplitude modulation, bandpass filtering, feedback loops, internal oscillation and compression. It allows you to compose rhythmic patterns from the sonic timbre of the input.

    Features:
    Pattern editor for composition of rhythmic patterns
    Mixer to control parameters for each sound
    Edit pane to specify envelopes for the parameters
    Collection of preset patterns and sounds
    Parameter automation using MIDI controllers or VST automation
    VST Time Information to synchronise with host sequencers
    Supports non-4/4 time signatures
    IN, OUT and Wet/Dry sliders keep their state on preset/pattern changes
    Complies with VST 2.4 standard
    32-bit & 64-bit versions for Mac (VST/AU) & PC (VST)

    New in version 2.5.1.5:

    fixed a large window size bug when running in energyXT host
    [​IMG]

    Anarchy Effects is a cross-platform bundle consisting of 5 audio plugins, each of which does a different novel form of frequency domain processing. VST versions now comply to VST 2.4 standard and plugins in different formats are available for both Mac and PC.

    Plugins in the bundle:

    SpectralAutopan – assigns different pan positions to the different component pitches in the input signal. The effect pitch has on pan position is controlled by control points, which can change in pan position and pitch according to LFOs. This adds stereo depth and motion to sounds.
    Corkscrew – mixes together multiple pitch-shifts of the input signal, increasing or decreasing their pitches in parallel, and fading them in/out at the extremes of their range. This creates the illusion of a sound that seems to continually rise or fall, but doesn’t actually change in average pitch.
    HarmonicAdder – creates harmonic resonances by pitch shifting the dominant frequencies in your input signal by the various intervals in the harmonic series (octave, octave+fifth, two octaves, two octaves+major third etc). These harmonics can be mixed with the dry input signal to make it more resonant, or used on their own as a new sound.
    LengthSeparator – bisects the input signal according to the lengths of its component frequencies. Short sounds become the ‘transient’ part, long sounds become the ‘stable’ part. These parts can be isolated (ie the other part removed), or assigned different pan positions to create stereo movement.
    Convoluter – applies a convolution matrix to the spectral representation of the input signal. This bends the sound along the continuum between pure sine tones and pure noise.

    Features:
    Parameter automation using MIDI controllers or VST automation
    Complies with VST 2.4 standard
    32-bit & 64-bit versions for Mac (VST/AU) & PC (VST)

    New in version 1.5.1.1:
    improved graphic performance
    Spectral Autopan: fixed distortion in low frequency filter
    Spectral Autopan: various bug fixes

    New in version 1.5.1.2:
    Spectral Autopan: fixed a bug causing distortion for static graphs
    fixed permission issues for Mac VST plug-ins (hosts unable to enumerate VST plug-ins)

    Alto Glockenspiel Essential by Cinematique Instruments
    Download for free

    [​IMG]

    Free VST, AAX, AU Glockenspiel for PC and Mac

    The free Alto Glockenspiel by Cinematique Instruments for HALion provides you with the original sound of the legendary Glockenspiel, but adds some fresh effects to turn the sound into something new. Owing to the fact that the sampled model also has a one octave lower range than a usual Glockenspiel, the sounds are much softer and mellow.

    The instrument was recorded by beating the metal bars of the Glockenspiel with thin sticks (hard articulation) as well as soft mallets (gentle articulation) in two or three dynamic layers and three Round Robin variations. With the included cabinet simulation, a rotary simulation, a tone control, a length control and reverb and delay amount, it is very easy to transform the sound into something from another world.

    Download Method: KONTAKT HUB


    PRODUCT OVERVIEW
    Micro Pod 1 is the basis of a new range of products that are in the pipeline and Micro Pod 1 consists of a collection of sounds taken from a Yamaha PCS500 home keyboard, Origin synth and 8 bit synth waveforms.

    Hopefully Micro pod 1 will allow you to get a feel for what the later Micro Pod products will offer.

    The Micro Pod 1 is designed to be small, easy to use and offer just enough control to allow quick and easy sound creation.

    The Micro Pod 1 has reverb and delay effects and is meant to be used with whatever external effects you have to give it 'your own' sound and sonic stamp.

    Designed to be used when you want to have access to sounds and make quick sounds for your projects without getting bogged down and too involved in sound design.

    Micro Pod 1 comes with a number of presets and MULTI's ranging from: pads, strings, 8 bit leads, Commodore 64 type sounds, moody atmospheres (I love Resident Evil 2), spacey synths etc

    NOTE: Requires the FULL version of Kontakt 5.8.1
