Quilcom SIM-WINDHARP 0 (0)

front-panel-with-Aeolous

The Quilcom SIM-WINDHARP is an effect plugin which actually generates the sound of Aeolian harps, together with wind and tree rustling sounds which can be mixed as appropriate.

It’s seen as an effect plugin, but the only inputs are for sidechain control of the wind speed. You can record the output in a DAW, but to hear the recording you may have to bypass the effect or turn it off in the DAW first.

The zip (click on the picture) contains 32 and 64 bit plugins and a 32 bit plugin for Windows XP. Also I provided a stand-alone version in case you just want the sound as a background. There’s a user guide and the FlowStone FSM schematic which isn’t needed for the plugins to run, but there if you have FlowStone and wish to look under the hood.

I hope you don’t think this really “blows”!

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!

ODeus ASIO Link Pro – Patcher now free 0 (0)

In the beginning there was a man… This man developed a piece of software that was truly incredible. All the little boys and girls, mainly audiophiles thrived on this mans work. Everyone was happy. UNTIL ONE DAY.

s1

The software that everyone knew and loved STOPPED WORKING, nobody could buy it, those who had already bought it… could no longer activate it.. All that was left were many unanswered questions. Soon these qustions were answered.. (kind of).

answered

So you see there was no hope going forward… the audiophiles would all be doomed to scour the interwebs for any kind of alternative… yet they would all leave the young audiophiles still feeling empty, while standing in the shadow cast by ODeus ASIO Link. One brave audiophile said “NO! I WONT STAND FOR THIS! I WILL REVERSE ENGINEER THIS PROGRAM!” and this young audiophile was…. NOT ME. Yet he did find me and bring this (problem/nightmare/time suck/amazing reverse engineering feat/success story) to me after having already suffered 85+ hours. Together (G.A. Collective) spend the next few days (many hours for each of them), jumping through the previously mentioned incredible person’s (ODeus) code at the binary level.. LET ME REMIND YOU… this guy could code… yea… check that string length 10 times please… yea.. it was great.. IN THE END WE BRING YOU…

“This ASIO driver extends your audio interface ASIO driver and adds windows audio with no additional latency. It also allows you to use your ASIO driver from more than one application with the inbuilt multi-client support, and you can even send ASIO audio over the network.

The driver is great value for money for people who need to monitor or record from windows audio or just want to jam with their favourite tunes.

Features:

  • Extremely high performance for Pro Audio apps.
  • Zero added ASIO latency.
  • 64 IN + 64 OUT virtual ASIO channels.
  • 32 IN + 32 OUT WDM audio channels.
  • 16 IN + 16 OUT network audio channels.
  • Multi-client mode means ASIO for up to 25 apps.
  • Works without internal WDM or ASIO audio resampling.
  • Record lossless 8 channel audio to FLAC file.
  • Supports Windows XP, Vista, 7, 8, 8.1 and 10.
  • Route audio to/from WDM/MME/DirectSound/WASAPI and LAN/NET.”

This effectively allows you to use more than one ASIO interface at the same time in CbB (even ones on an external networked PC), allowing up to 64 input/output channels.  At the moment I’ve no idea how this affects latency, but I guess if it’s lots of inputs you need then it’s likely it’s a whole band you’re recording and this will be less of a concern. I can also see it being really useful for making tutorial videos.

Quilcom SIM-CARNYX 0 (0)

A Carnyx is an ancient Iron Age Celtic war horn used to intimidate the enemy in pitched battles, and it’s not very “musical”. It is, however, fascinating… to me anyway!

There’s lots of info in the Background info folder and User Guide if you would like to know more.

The download includes 32 and 64 bit plugins and XP compatible ones, with and without audio input.

Also you get the FlowStone schematics (not needed for the plugins to work). This means that if you buy FlowStone you can open, examine and alter them as you wish.

Click on the picture to download it, load it up and open all your windows and have fun really upsetting your neighbours!

EVOX Calypso by 2MGT/Metamusic Generative Tools 0 (0)

 

EVOX Calypso is an experimental sound, performance-oriented virtual musical instrument that is designed for creating cinematic ambient soundscapes, sound structures, and atmospheric and ethereal textures, as well as more traditional synthesizer sounds that can be layered to create a tremendous variety of spatial sounds. EVOX Calypso sounds extend to unattainable distances, immersing you in unexpected worlds. The tool includes more than 128 ready-to-mix presets.
EVOX Calypso is Free/Donate. The Free version has some limitations. A version available to supporters includes a package of additional presets for synthesizers, effects, and track models.No installation is necessary, and it works without problems in Windows XP and Windows 10 (32/64-bit). (EVOX Calypso is 32-bit.)
EVOX Calypso is an standalone tool application for Windows that employs Wavetable / Granular synthesis in two separate and programmable layers each with extensive FX, Modulation Matrix and Chord Sequencer modules which provide the user with maximum control over unique sound creation.
As an experimental synthesizer, it radically departs from standard type instruments and is meant to be used as a laboratory for the exploration of new sonic and timbral creations. Playing EVOX Calypso is not like playing a conventional synthesizer, it does not have a keyboard and MIDI GUI like conventional synthesizers. Sound manipulation is carried out by built-in modulators and sequencers.
EVOX Calypso also has an 8-track sequencer with up to 64 steps for each track. Each track is essentially a separate synthesizer that can be recorded and played back in sync with the other tracks. Mini compositions can be made by merging these tracks together.

Voxengo MSED 3.5 Win/Mac (Free) 0 (0)

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.

Faetures:
Mid-side encoder and decoder
Inline mode
“Plasma” vector scope
Stereo correlation and balance meters
Input channel swapping
180-degree phase flipping
Mid-side panning
Preset manager
Undo/redo history
A/B comparisons
Contextual hint messages
All sample rates support
Zero processing latency
User interface color schemes
Resizable user interface
Retina and HighDPI support

Compatibility
This audio plugin can be loaded into any audio host application that conforms to the AudioUnit or VST plugin specification. Plugins with AAX version available can be loaded in ProTools 12+.

Voxengo SPAN 3.11 (Win/Mac) Free 0 (0)

SPAN is a free real-time “fast Fourier transform” audio spectrum analyzer AAX, AudioUnit and VST plugin for professional sound and music production applications. For the most part it was derived from Voxengo GlissEQ dynamic parametric equalizer and reproduces its spectrum analysis functionality.

SPAN provides you with a very flexible “mode” system which you can use to setup your spectrum analyzer preferences. You may specify Fourier block size in samples, FFT window overlap percentage, spectrum’s visual slope. Beside that you can choose to display secondary spectrum of a desired type (e.g. real-time maximum, all-time maximum). Spectrum can be smoothed out visually for an easier examination.

SPAN supports multi-channel analysis and can be set to display spectrums from two different channels or channel groups at the same time. Spectrum’s color can be chosen to taste.

SPAN also features output level metering with adjustable ballistics and integration time, EBU R128, K-system metering (including calibration K-system metering). SPAN displays level metering statistics, headroom estimation and true peak clipping detection. Correlation metering is available as well.

Features:
Output signal power statistics
Spectrum smoothing
User interface window resizing
True peak and clipping statistics
Correlation meter
EBU R128 LUFS/LU metering
K-system metering (unweighted)
Stereo and multi-channel analysis
Mid/side analysis
Internal channel routing
Channel grouping
Preset manager
Undo/redo history
A/B comparisons
Contextual hint messages
All sample rates support
User interface color schemes
Retina and HighDPI support

Compatibility:
This audio plugin can be loaded into any audio host application that conforms to the AudioUnit or VST plugin specification. Plugins with AAX version available can be loaded in ProTools 12+.

List of changes in version 3.11:
Added Apple Silicon native compatibility.
Added 1/48 octave spectrum smoothing option.
Improved spectrum smoothing precision.
Enabled the “asynchronous drawing” window mode on macOS; may fix the user interface “lagging”.
The “Copy to” button is now called the “Copy”: this button now copies parameters FROM the selected group, NOT TO the selected group. This should improve the workflow.
Improved font rendering slightly.

Mastrcode Music free T-Force Delay plugin 0 (0)

T-Force Delay is a dual mode delay effect device. It can be used to add an echo effect to your sound. Its feedback signal can be modulated with filters and a degrader, to emulate the old vinage style analog tape echo effects. It can produce simple stereo delays, but also can be switched to ping pong mode for that typical left/right pingpong echo effect. it also has a flanger to create some crazy flanger effects on the feedback signal.

Available as 64 bit VST/VST3 and 32 bit VST.

Features:

  • Effect device for using as insert effect or send effect
  • Powe switch – can be switched off to turn the plugin into bypass mode
  • Sync switch for switching between free mode and host sync mode for the delay time
  • Switch for enabling ping pong mode
  • Delay time control – controls the time of the delay
  • Feedback control – controls the feedback signal length
  • Mix control for the dry signal
  • Mix control for the wet signal

Feedback modulations:

  • Filter – used to create that typical analog tape echo style lowpass/high pass filter fitlering effect in the feedback signal
  • Degrader – used to create a degrade/downsampling the effect in the feedback signal

Flanger:

  • Adds a flanger effect to the wet signal
  • Rate control – used to control the tempo rate of the modulation
  • Depth control – used to control the modulation depth
  • Feedback control – used to control the amount how strong the flanged signal will fed back into the flanger which results in a more “metallic” sound.
  • Mix control – used to control how strong the flanger effect will be added to the wet signal.

Other features:

  • All controls are fully automatable
  • Available as 64 bit VST2/VST3 and 32 bit VST2

How to install: instructions how to install this plugin are included in the zip file.

Info: the VST2 version of the plugin also uses the VST3 preset system (.vst3preset), to make the presets cross-compatible. For more infos please read the “Read me first!” text file included in the zip file.

Please note: supports Windows 7 and higher only, because the plugin uses a new graphics API – all graphics now will be rendered with your graphic card’s GPU instead of the CPU. Windows XP doesn’t support the new graphics API. No Mac support, because some 3rd party code modules are used inside the plugin which are just available for Windows. If the developers of these code modules make them available for Mac, i will also add a Mac AU version in future.

You might need to intall Microsoft Visual C++ 2015/2017 Redistributable
