Upright Piano is a sampled Kawai upright piano.

The samples were recorded in 44.1kHz 16bit audio quality. There are 2 velocity layers, which make this plugin ideal for simple piano lines. With its sharp and fuzzy sound, it will fit well in dark and sad melodies.

Upright Piano sports an easy-to-use GUI. You will notice typical controls such as attack & release, global gain, also a simple reverb. The “Tremolo” section consists of an LFO section with LFO destination (pitch, expression, or pan), rate & depth. Underneath there’s a simple lowpass/highpass filter with cutoff.

If you’re wondering what’s that “Key” little knob, it simply sets the amount of noise for keys release.

  • Only 57 MB size on disk.
  • Attack & release.

Grand Piano XXL by audiolatry 5 (2)

Grand-Piano-XXL_3

Grand Piano XXL is a sampled Yamaha C5 6’7″ Grand Piano.

The original samples (Creative Commons Attribution 3.0 license) were recorded by Alexander Holm with two AKG c414 condenser microphones placed in an AB position at around 12 centimeters above the strings.

All the samples were captured in 48kHz 24-bit audio quality with 16 velocity layers which are all present in this virtual plugin, hence the 1.19 GB size on disk.

The GUI is simple and intuitive with attack & release controls, reverb module, and gain. In the middle, there’s a “Tremolo” section with LFO rate & depth for pitch, expression, and pan, plus filter cutoff with selectable lowpass/highpass. The “Key” knob acts as a gain for piano keys release.

  • Sampled Yamaha C5 Grand Piano.
  • 16 velocity layers.
  • Keys release.
  • 48kHz 24-bit audio quality.
  • 1.19 GB size on disk.
  • Attack & release.
  • LFO with rate & depth.
  • Filter cutoff (lowpass & highpass).
  • Reverb module.
  • Volume knob.
 
Grand Piano XXL comes in two plugin versions: VST (VST2) and VST3. It works within DAWs or other plugin hosts loaded on Windows 8.1/10. You will need 1.19 GB of hard drive space.

musicians interested in exploring the vast expressive possibilities of making music with alternative
intonation systems. It is a 32-bit plugin instrument for Windows.
Microtuning Features

Internally loads and externally receives both MTS (MIDI Tuning Standard) Bulk Dump and Single Note
Microtuning Files

Operator ratios can easily be set to values that are coincident with the microtuning being used,
thereby producing intonation related sidebands in the timbre of the instrument

Microtonal pitch-bend ranges may be configured in cents, harmonics and superparticular ratios

Arbitrary microtonal pitch shifting makes it possible to easily pitch transpose the oscillators in both
octave and non-octave increments
FM-RM Oscillator

What exactly is Origin?
Origin is a vintage/lofi plugin created to make your samples sound like they’re straight from an old tape machine.

The main knob is a resampler/bitcrusher with two special filters to make your samples sound “underwater” (this effect can often be heard in Drake songs)

The other four knobs are Tape Saturation, Noise, Movement, and Chorus. Using these 5 powerful controls you can instantly give your samples a vintage vibe.

*Origin is 64 bit only

What’s under the hood of Origin?
Origin was built based on vintage gear to give the most realistic analog sound.

The “Movement” knob (or Wow/Flutter) has a special mode that uses a randomizer algorithm to create realistic tape pitch wobbles.

We also replicated the famous Juno 106 chorus sound with the two classic slow and fast chorus modes.

Finally, the tape saturation modes are modeled from vintage tape machines. Using these in tandem with the noise knob and Resampler, you will get an undeniable vintage tone to your sounds.

How does the Resampler engine work?
The core of Origin is its resampler, which changes the sample rate of your running audio in real-time. However, reducing the sample rate alone will produce bitcrusher-style artifacts called “images.” In many cases, these aren’t desirable. Removing these images using Origin’s special filters results in an effect similar to a brick-wall lowpass filter, but with an altogether different sonic character.

Rather than turning down the cutoff on a lowpass filter to cut high frequencies, Origin mathematically forbids high frequencies from existing above the resampler cutoff frequency.

*This effect is the famous “underwater” effect you hear on a lot of melodies in Drake songs.

Arminator by Krakli-Plugins[Win][VSTI][x86] 0 (0)

Arminator2

We say that Arminator2 is designed as a homage to the Yamaha CS80, it can not be considered to be a faithful emulation of that fantastic instrument but rather it’s aim is to offer patches that hint at the original instruments power.
Others say that Arminator is a stunning homage to the Yamaha CS-80. It’s one of the best emulations you’ll find and it’s completely free.
Version 2 includes the following enhancements:
The scaling of various controls has been improved, the LFO can now be synced to a KeyPress. KeySplit can be anywhere on a key across the 10 octave range. KeyTracking is now available on the LowPass and HighPass Filters. The Sine oscillator in the Line Amp can now also be a -1 or -2 octave sub. Mono Poly on individual lines and a Chorus effect has been added. Lastly line 2’s envelopes can be delayed by up to 500ms from KeyPress.
But none of that is particularly important unless you’re an existing owner. For anyone else all you need to know is that this is a fabulous CS-80 emulation with some great presets, for free, wrapped up in a rather cramped, small but functional GUI. The only slight weirdness is that it’s a 32bit plug-in for Windows only. But provided your DAW supports 32bit plug-ins or you use some bridging software then it should be fine.
