LV-60 by ViatorDSP 0 (0)

LV-60 is an analog graphic equalizer.

  • 10 filter bands with 12 dB of negative and positive gain.
  • Low-shelf, high-shelf and 8 peak notches with two having the option to be shelves or bell shapes by toggling the bell buttons below the filters.
  • Analog-inspired saturation circuit. When the drive is set to 0, the drive is bypassed, any values higher than 0 engage the saturation circuit.
  • Proportional Q controlled by the gain of each filter. Gain values above 0 gradually thin the Q value. The negative end of the gain range has a much thinner Q than the positive end, so it’s great for cutting unwanted frequencies.
  • Trim knob to control the overall volume of the plugin.
  • Fully DAW-compatible automation parameters for each control.
  • Toggle button to turn off shadows. This helps under-powered laptops that lag when using the user interface.


Exclusively for KEYS readers Baby Audio offers the delay plugin Keylay for download. Behind it is a creative weapon based on the plugin Comeback Kid. For example, tempo-synchronized, dotted or triplet delays can be created as delays. Ping-pongs can also be implemented without any problems. A free mode gives room for individual delay times that are not bound to the song tempo. A ducker expands the possibilities, for example, to discreetly enrich kick drums with delays. Also included are four exclusive presets that were screwed by KEYS author Carl-Philipp Schmeller. The original and effect signals can be controlled separately. Keylay supports the formats VST, AU and AAX.

discoDSP OB-XD v2.4 x64 VST VST3 AU WiN MAC LiNUX [FREE] 0 (0)

OB-Xd is based on the Oberheim OB-X. It attempts to recreate its sound and behavior, but as the original was very limited in some important ways a number of things were added or altered to the original design. OB-Xd was designed to sound as good and as rich as the original. It implements micro random detuning which is a big part of that sound.

What’s new

• 7x faster GUI controls.
• Linux build.
• Standalone app.
• Signed and notarized installers.
• Updated JUCE framework to 5.4.7 for better stability and compatibility.
• Updated Banks with 2.0 compatibility.
• Ilkka Rosma Dark Theme.
• macOS Catalina support.
• MIDI CC Learn.
• MIDI CC support.
• Parameter refactor.
• XML based skinning.
• HiDPI (Retina) ready GUI themes.

What’s new
• Preset browser bar (switchable using MENU button).
• Added FXP preset and FXB bank files drag and drop support.
• New MIDI CC XML config menu.
• Enhanced MIDI learn. Bindings will be saved to Documents > discoDSP > OB-Xd > MIDI > Custom.xml file for all instances.
• Enhanced Standalone app.
• Fixed preset sync issue.
• Fixed LEARN button led click issue.


While not copying originals, some of the features were taken to a better point. Continuous blendable multimode filter (HP-Notch(BP)-HP in 12 dB mode and 4-1 pole in 24 dB mode). Also, like many synths of the OB-X’s generation, the OB-Xd has no internal effects so its sounds and textures can be greatly enhanced by the use of additional processing like chorus, reverb, delay, etc.

Thanks to 2Dat for the original OB-Xd and Soshi Studio for giving the rights to continue this wonderful product. Also thanks to all KVR artists for making the amazing skins!. OB-Xd Desktop has no restrictions and is free to use. Buy to support further development, thank you! Source code is available under GPL license at GitHub.



ViatorDSP LV50A free equalizer effect plugin (VST3/AU) 0 (0)

ViatorDSP has announced the release of a free equalizer plugin that combines the sound and curves of two different hardware EQ’s that have defined music studios across the decades.

This EQ is inspired by real EQ’s, but it definitely has its own flavor. It sounds great on anything, but I think it’s great on the master bus, especially since the high and low filters are inspired by a famous mastering hardware EQ.

LV50A features

  • Oversampling of 8x when oversampling is turned on from the top-right dropdown menu. This makes a huge difference on the top end frequencies.
  • 4 EQ bands with proportional Q and 12 dB of boost and attenuation.
  • When the gain of a band is set to 0 dB, the filter circuit disables, which saves loads of CPU if you aren’t using the band anyway.
  • Saturation algorithm on the output, the EQ pushes into it. When the drive is set to 0 dB, the circuit disables to save on CPU.
  • The low and high bands can be a shelf or bell depending on the state of the button under each band.
  • Reset button to set all band’s gains to 0 dB.
  • High and low pass filters to filter out the very top and bottom frequencies that aren’t super useful. Toggle the filters button under the drive. These filters really make a huge difference when oversampling is on.
  • Phase inversion button to flip the phase of the entire circuit. This is useful for parallel processing.
  • Trim gain to boost or attenuate the volume of the entire plugin.

MV’s Plugins has La Voz Cantante, free 1024-band vocoder for Windows 0 (0)

An FFT-based 1024-channel vocoder. The modulator input – usually a sung or simpjy spoken voice – is analyzed with respect to its spectral content, which is then applied to the other sound source. The latter may be any externally supplied signal ranging from pink noise, synth pads, guitar or even drums. Alternatively, there is an internal, MIDI driven synth which is optimized for best speech reproduction fidelity. You can blend the high frequencies with noise for natural-sounding sibilants. There is also a noise gate, a compressor and a stereo reverb on board.

Here is a summary of La Voz Cantante’s features:

  • FFT based 1024-channel vocoder.
  • Stereo inputs for carrier and modulator, respectively.
  • Optional MIDI input to drive internal synth as carrier.
  • Polyphony with unlimited number of voices.
  • Up to three voices per note with adjustable relative detuning and stereo width.
  • Octave, semitone and fine tuning controls.
  • Option of noise blending for improved sibilant formation.
  • Built-in modulator noise gate with indicator.
  • Built-in soft knee limiter with color-coded LED indicator.
  • Built-in stereo reverb.
  • Master volume control with output clipping indicator.
  • LED indicators for inputs and outputs for quick check of signal routing.

New in Version 6.4:

  • 64-bit plugin version available.
  • VST3 plugin version available.
  • Extended modulator pitch range down to G#1.
  • Faster sibilant detector.
  • Improved voiced/unvoiced transitions.
  • Symmetric-crest output waveform.
  • Reverb uses velvet noise.

Spatial Audio SPARTA v1.5.0 VST WiN MACOS LiNUX [FREE] 0 (0)

SPARTA is a collection of flexible VST audio plug-ins for spatial audio production, reproduction and visualisation, developed primarily by members of the Acoustics Lab at Aalto University, Finland.

• Download links of current and past versions can be found here.
• The suite has been formally presented in this publication, with the source code made available here (GPLv3 license).
• The SPARTA installer also includes the COMPASS suite, the HO-DirAC suite, CroPaC Binaural Decoder, and the HO-SIRR room impulse response renderer. These plug-ins employ parametric processing and are signal-dependent, aiming to go beyond conventional linear Ambisonics by extracting meaningful parameters over time and subsequently employing them to map the input to the output in a more informed manner.
• For the curious researchers and/or spatial audio developers: note that the plugins included in the SPARTA installer are all built using the open-source Spatial_Audio_Framework (SAF).

List of plug-ins included in the SPARTA installerThe SPARTA suite:
• sparta_ambiBIN – A binaural ambisonic decoder (up to 7th order) with a built-in SOFA loader and head-tracking support via OSC messages. Includes: Least-Squares (LS), spatial re-sampling (SPR), time-alignment (TA), and magnitude least-squares (Mag-LS) decoding options.
• sparta_ambiDEC – A frequency-dependent loudspeaker ambisonic decoder (up to 7th order) with user specifiable loudspeaker directions (up to 64), which may be optionally imported via JSON configuration files. Includes: All-Round (AllRAD), Energy-Preserving (EPAD), Spatial (SAD), and Mode-Matching (MMD) ambisonic decoding options. The loudspeaker signals may also be binauralised for headphone playback.
• sparta_ambiDRC – A frequency-dependent dynamic range compressor for ambisonic signals (up to 7th order).
• sparta_ambiENC – An ambisonic encoder/panner (up to 7th order), with support for up to 64 input channels; the directions for which may also be imported via JSON configuration files.
• sparta_ambiRoomSim – A shoebox room simulator based on the image-source method, supporting multiple sources and ambisonic receivers..
• sparta_array2sh – A microphone array spatial encoder (up to 7th order), with presets for several commercially available A-format and higher-order microphone arrays. The plug-in can also present objective evaluation metrics for the currently selected configuration.
• sparta_beamformer – A spherical harmonic domain beamforming plug-in with multiple beamforming strategies (up to 64 output beams).
• sparta_binauraliser – A binaural panner (up to 64 input channels) with a built-in SOFA loader and head-tracking support via OSC messages.
• sparta_decorrelator – A simple multi-channel signal decorrelator (up to 64 input channels).
• sparta_dirass – A sound-field visualiser based on re-assigning the energy of beamformers. This re-assigment is based on DoA estimates extracted from “spatially-constrained” regions, which are centred around each beamformer look-direction.
• sparta_matrixconv – A basic matrix convolver with an optional partitioned convolution mode. The user need only specify the number of inputs and load the filters via a wav file.
• sparta_multiconv – A basic multi-channel convolver with an optional partitioned convolution mode. Unlike “MatrixConv”, this plug-in does not perform any matrixing. Instead, each input channel is convolved with the respective filter; i.e. numInputs = numFilters = numOutputs.
• sparta_panner – A frequency-dependent 3-D panner using the VBAP method (up to 64 inputs and outputs).
• sparta_powermap – A sound-field visualisation plug-in based on ambisonic signals as input (up to 7th order), with PWD/MVDR/MUSIC/Min-Norm options.
• sparta_rotator – A flexible ambisonic rotator (up to 7th order) with head-tracking support via OSC messages.
• sparta_sldoa – A frequency-dependent sound-field visualiser (up to 7th order), based on depicting the direction-of-arrival (DoA) estimates derived from spatially localised active-intensity vectors. The low frequency estimates are shown with blue icons, mid-frequencies with green, and high-frequencies with red.
• sparta_spreader – An arbitrary array (e.g. HRIRs or microphone array IRs) panner with coherent and incoherent spreading options.

The COMPASS suite:
• compass_binaural – A binaural ambisonic decoder (up to 3rd order input) based on the parametric COMPASS model, with a built-in SOFA loader and head-tracking support via OSC messages.
