Monster Soundscapes is a free multi-voice ambient and SFX sound plugin that you can mix and match to obtain unique sounds that match your mood and visual needs!
This plugin can be used to generate ambient sound for your film scoring projects or animated film projects. It can also be used for relaxation or ASMR by recording some notes in your DAW and looping them endlessly.
The source of the presets is my own recordings combined with free sounds from the internet which I have tweaked to make them different from the original. Therefore, it’s safe to use in your projects without any copyright claims or strikes (except if someone registers it, which I haven’t).
You can adjust the individual Volume and Pan of each voice, and it has Master Reverb, Delay, and Volume Controls.

FAQ About Monster Soundscapes
Q : I want XXX and YYY features of Monster Soundscapes, can you program it?
A : To be honest, I’m professional musician and audio educator BUT I’m not a professional plugin programmer. I do this just for fun, so your request may not be available (but you can always try to ask me via CONTACT page).
Q : Why there are no VST 32 bit version anymore?
A : It is because my programming software can’t export 32bit plugin anymore. You can use JBridge to convert my 64bit plugin to 32bit.
Q : I have a problem using this plugin on my Mac, I’m using Monterey/Big Sur/Catalina. It says that the files are damaged or can’t be open because the developer is not trusted.
A : That problem was caused by Mac OS security which now is very strict. I have applied for a developer account in Apple to be a trusted developer but they haven’t responded to my inquiry yet.
In the meantime, please watch these videos (If this is not working, it’s ok, you can pass my VSTs ?):
