discoDSP OB-XD v2.5 x64 VST VST3 AU WiN MAC LiNUX [FREE] 0 (0)

obxd20_ilkka_rosma

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.

Overview
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.

What’s new in OB-Xd v2.5
• Added Scalable GUI (1x, 1.5x, 2x) with HiDPI support for all platforms.
• Added Luke’s Soundhouse 80s & Synthwave Presets bank.
• Preset Bar now uses bold font for better visibility.
• Specific fonts for each system (Helvetica Neue for macOS, Arial for Windows and DejaVu Sans for Linux).
• Revised all themes XML knob sizes and alignments.
• Updated assets with 4x bitmaps including Ilkka Rosma Dark theme.
• Streamlined Menu.
• Updated themes folder error dialog assets and window size.
• Added program popup menu when clicking Preset Bar name.
• Added Menu Help version and Open PDF manual (Windows and macOS).
• Miscellaneous fixes an enhancements.

Onsen Audio OS-251 v1.0.1 VST3 AU WiN MAC LiNUX [FREE] 0 (0)

OS-251_screenshot

OS-251 is a pure digital lo-fi synthesizer plugin for Mac, Windows and Linux
OS-251 is a “JUNO” style digital subtractive synthesizer with a simple yet powerful DSP algorithm. Unlike other plugins that use analogue simulation, OS-251 uses digital algorithms to give warm, lo-fi sounds. The design of the oscillators and the selection of parameters were influenced by the JUNO-106, making it easier to express a thicker, chunkier sound.

The oscillator has alias noise (specific to digital signal processing) famous on classic samplers like E-mu SP-12 which adds lo-fi feeling to the sound. You can enjoy the powerful sound at modern sampling rates with your DAW.

Easy to use
Tired of overwhelming synthesizers with hundreds of parameters and presets? Then OS-251 is for you! OS-251 is equipped with only carefully selected parameters, allowing musicians to concentrate on music production. You can see every parameter at once, so you can have a stress-free experience. Because the number of the parameters is limited, you can create the desired sounds yourself quickly and you don’t have to spend your precious time choosing presets.

Key features
• Up to 10 voices of polyphony
• Oscillators (Sin, Square, Saw), with Shape parameter
• Square sub oscillator
• Noise oscillator
• Biquad low-pass filter (LPF) with Frequency and Resonance parameters
• Biquad high-pass filter (HPF) with Frequency parameter
• Envelope generator which can control LPF and amplitude
• Low-frequency oscillator (LFO) which can control LPF, amplitude, and Shape parameter
• LFO sync
• Chorus
• Flexible pitch controls (pitch bend width, octave, semitone, fine tuning)

ClickBox by UnplugRed 0 (0)

ui

generates randomized digital clicks.

made after people complained i fixed the annoying clicking issue in my first vst, plastic funeral (why??).

great for creative sound design, and useful as a vca controller for other parameters and side-chaining (fruity peak controller for fl users).

otherwise, not that useful.

available for both windows and linux

U-he Protoverb v1.0.1 x64 x86 VST VST3 AU AAX WiN MAC LiNUX [FREE] 0 (0)

Protoverb: prototype reverb
A natural sounding reverb based on the concept of a room simulator. Protoverb is an experimental researchware plug-in, developed to aid our research. Download and use it for free.

Feel it in the air

What is Protoverb?
Protoverb is an experimental room simulator reverb. Most algorithmic reverbs try to avoid resonances or model the reflections of sound from a room’s walls. Protoverb does the opposite. It builds up as many room resonances as possible, modelling the body of air in the room. No need to modulate or colour the signal. The result is a very natural sounding reverberation with interesting characteristics:
• Notes held for a longer time tend to build up resonance, as if the air takes a while to get excited
• Multiple instruments remain distinct, without disappearing in a wash
• When you play a short melody, the room seems to repeat a ghost echo of that melody

Random
The text box at the bottom of Protoverb’s interface contains a text string made up of two random parts. The first half dictates the network structure, strategies for spatial layout and distribution of delay taps, strategies for finding useful delay lengths and so on. The second half is a seed for a pseudo-random number generator—used to set various parameters such as the average delay length, which prime number to choose (if any) etcetera.

You can either edit the text, or randomise each part independently using the buttons below the text box.

Fircomp 1 by Jon V Audio 0 (0)

mac_screenshot_02

Ultra clean peak compressor/limiter with punchy attack, musical release, and optional lookahead smoothing, for tracks or busses. Zero/low latency and low CPU. Warm distortion at extreme settings.

Features:

  • Fast or same-sample attack times that never sound “clicky”, even in zero latency mode.
  • Innovative digital envelope detection algorithm allows for much lower distortion than typical peak compressors (see a plot of a 1kHz hard limited sine wave in zero latency mode).
  • Optional lookahead FIR gain smoothing for an even cleaner sound.
  • True zero attack (same-sample) when “0.0 ms” is selected.
  • Dual parallel release stage with musical, highly history-dependent behaviour. Avoids use of multiple compressors in series.
  • Easy sidechain filtering options for common mixing situations.
  • Low CPU, fully 64-bit DSP code, making full use of SSE instructions. Insert on every track without a second thought.
  • Zero latency with lookahead off. With lookahead on, compensated latency of 1.5ms.
  • No phase shift: can be used in parallel.
