ZEEK STFU v1.0.4 x64 VST3 AU WiN MACOS [FREE 0 (0)

ZEEK STFU is the best free volume shaper available.

STFU is a super quick to use sidechainer that can be automatically sync’d to host BPM or triggered by MIDI notes and it’s always sample accurate. Using MIDI trigger, you can overcome limitations of very many synth volume envelopes for a myriad of purposes.

STFU can also output CV for use with lots of hosts and modular plugins.

And if that isn’t enough, you can set up 2 separate envelopes and crossfade between them for all sorts of cool stuff.

Quilcom SIM-SHENG 0 (0)

The Quilcom SIM-SHENG is a plugin designed to simulate this ancient class of Chinese mouth organs.

Click on the picture to download the zip which contains 32 and 64 bit plugins and a 32 bit plugin for Windows XP. Also included is a Background info folder so you can learn about the instrument, and a User guide for the plugin.

I always include the fsm file for my plugins which isn’t needed for the plugins to work but is there if you want to download FlowStone and look at the workings and maybe modify it, or use bits and pieces for your own projects.

Have fun!

Nettle by Fellusive 0 (0)

Nettle explores the unique and relatively under-explored world of scanned synthesis.

The timbre of the sounds you create constantly evolve, as the waveform produced is made by tracing (scanning) the positions of masses that are always in motion. These masses are set into motion when you press a key on your MIDI controller – this simulates the action of a hammer striking the connection of masses.
Through the user’s manipulation of the masses, the springs that connect them, and the hammer that excites them, a wide range of dynamic, almost sentient, sounds are possible.
  • 32-voice polyphony.
  • Fully automatable knobs.
  • Filter (low-pass, high-pass) and reverb available for signal processing.
  • Four LFOs and ADSRs available for modulation, along with two sources for modulation via your MIDI controller.
  • Built-in presets, as well as the ability for users to save and modify their own presets.
  • A randomize button.

Vastaus Is A FREE High-Frequency Enhancer Plugin By Wavegrove 0 (0)

Vastaus lives on instrument channels, buses and it is known to have been spotted on the master channel too. Feel free to use and abuse it. Try to add an EQ before Vastaus and push the highs way overboard and how Vastaus reacts.

It is at it’s most neutral at Input Gain and Tame at 0, at which time it brings down and blocks overly harsh high frequencies present in vocal esses, smooths cymbals, guitars and pretty much anything you throw at it.

Increasing Tame brings enhances that effect, but also brings in more options with the React switch, as well as with the Bias setting. React is a mode, where Tame starts to let through some transients in a really interesting way, bringing out more detail and clarity, but still smoothing the sound. With Bias, you can further control the sound by limiting the effect to either the positive or negative side of the audio samples, generating harmonics in the process. I have heard this referred to as silky, and apparently some well-known hardware unit makers use a process similar to this.

Lastly there is Gain. With the Input Gain, you control the overall signal boost you get going into the thing, while the Output Gain works as a pad, with 100% level adding no additional volume. Boosting the input gain can bring additional high end to the signal after taming it, which is especially useful with instruments such as the electric guitar. In conjunction with the use of the Bias knob, Vastaus can even act as a leveling tool, which also boosts and extends the high end frequencies far above where they ended in the original signal.

Use the Wet knob to blend the changed signal with the original in whatever way you want.

FourHead by Fugue State Audio 0 (0)

FourHead is an experimental granulator effect, despite not really being a delay or a granulator, though it lives in that realm.
It is based on an audio buffer which constantly records the input in chunks. This buffer is then read by four “play heads” which play it back as looped segments.
The length of the chunk to be played back is set independently from the length of the recorded buffer, and the pitch and start offset for each “head” can be modulated (the playback on 3 of the 4 heads can also be delayed), creating odd retriggering arpeggiations and granular-style swarms of sound.
The output can also be fed back to the record buffer for endless noisy fun.
