Quiet on the Set ~ Windows Volume Limiter


Prevent someone from turning up the volume on a Windows machine beyond a maximum volume.

This is a very simple Windows Forms application that lets you set a maximum value on for your volume, and then lock the setting so that a user cannot change the volume.

Disclaimer: This app is primarily geared toward young/special needs children. The “lock” provides a basic level of control, but it could be easily bypassed by someone with technical knowledge.

CamelCrusher ~ Compressor | Distortion


CamelCrusher is a free ‘colouring’ multi-effect plugin. It offers two characteristically different distortion sounds which can be blended together to create a wide variety of tones and textures. Great for guitars, drums and plenty more!

Finally, let’s not forget the easiest-to-use compressor you’ll find anywhere. It can ‘phatten’ up your sound as quickly as you can turn up the ‘Amount’ knob! Find out more in the manual.

Best of all, CamelCrusher is available free of charge!

  • Two different distortion types.
  • Warm, analogue-modelled resonant low-pass filter.
  • High quality, easy-to-use compressor, with ‘Phat’ mode.

Distorder ~ Audio Distortion Analyser

In simpler words, it’s just a soft to be sure if you’re not completely deaf.

4Front E-Piano ~ Freeware DX-7 Piano Plugin


4Front E-Piano is a small single sound instrument without any settings that reproduces a timbre, which is similar to DX-7 type e-piano. It is available as VSTi for Windows, and as an AudioUnit, VSTi and RTAS for Mac (see enclosed readme file).

This instrument is small on memory and CPU usage and was found useful by many users and software developers as a plug&play e-piano module, which does not require any configuration or adjustment.

Though this goes without saying for professional users, I still had a frequent question on how to use this plugin from people, who are not familiar with this technolog. One should note, that to make use of this software a plugin hosting software is necessary, such as Topten Cantabile software. A MIDI keyboard is also preferred, as it is something almost essential to create a computer music these days.

There is also 4Front R-Piano, which replicates a different type of E-Piano.
