Joakim Frostegård has released OctaSine, free and open source frequency modulation-based synthesizer plugin for Windows, macOS, and Linux.
OctaSine is a capable four-operator FM synthesizer with independent volume, panning, feedback, and ADSR controls for each operator. It takes inspiration from popular virtual FM synths like the FM8 from Native Instruments
DirtyPumper by SNFK Music is a Virtual Effect Audio Plugin for macOS and Windows. It functions as a VST3 Plugin.
DirtyPumper is an extreme saturator that punishes a mix. It was designed with drum processing in mind, but it can easily saturate anything you’d like. Features:
Dirt: Shapes the sound and pushes it to its limits – warps harmonics and stability.
Drive: Increases the input gain and other internal parameters.
Lowpass: Applies a lowpass filter to the input signal – helps emulate warmer sounds.
Pos / Neg knobs: Affects the positive and negative amplitudes’.
MSED is a professional audio encoder-decoder AAX, AudioUnit and VST plugin for mid-side processing which is able to encode (split) the incoming stereo signal into two components: mid-side pair, and vice versa: decode mid-side signal pair into stereo signal.
MSED is also able to work in the “inline” mode with the ability to adjust mid and side channels’ gain and panning without the need of using two plugin instances in sequence.
MSED can be used to flip the phase of the mid and side channels by 180 degrees, and swap the stereo channels, and to extract the mid or side channel.
MSED features the “plasma” vector scope, stereo correlation and balance meters which make it easier to monitor the stereo information present in the audio signal.

Lo-Fi Keys is a processed piano rompler inspired by today’s modern Lo-Fi music.
This small VST / AU plugin gives you the ability to lay out soft & dusty piano chord progressions and melodies.
Lo-Fi Keys comes with 10 sampled piano instruments. To create each preset we first started by sampling actual pianos. These pianos include a classic grand piano, upright piano, and electric keyboard. After recording the instruments we lightly edited and processed each sample. The processing technique included applying vinyl and tape textures to emulate a vintage sound. Finally, each sample showcases the characteristics found in today’s most popular lo-fi piano beats.
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.

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.
