RoughRider 3 ~ Dynamics Compressor VST


Our RoughRider compressor is one of the most popular dynamics processors on the planet, with well over a half a million downloads over its decade-plus lifespan, and is in heavy daily use by producers the world over. With RoughRider 3, we’ve expanded the original to include an external sidechain input, the ability to turn off the built-in “warming” filter (the FULL BANDWIDTH button), and much more accurate metering.

Twonker ~ Overtone Series MIDI VST


The Twonker is a free VST MIDI Plugin that allows a digital piano (or any MIDI instrument) to play tones from the Overtone Series. It is designed to run within most Digital Audio Workstations as a Synth Plugin on MacOS, Windows, and Linux.

The Twonker allows a musician to play overtones in a predictable and flexible manner, using a regular MIDI-based keyboard. In essence, it behaves like twelve different pianos tuned to twelve different “Overtone Scales”.

Features:
  • Runs on MacOS, Windows, and Linux
  • Built on the portable JUCE application framework
  • Functions as a Synth with MIDI input and output

LMS Plugins ~ Extend Logitech Media Server


LMS is an open source multi-room audio system. It was created by SlimDevices and then acquired by Logitech. Although Logitech has ended development of hardware devices, the project is still very active with lots of plugin released regularly. New hardware players can be added using PI devices and DAC boards to build high-quality multi-room systems.

I’ve created some extra plugins, especially to include new standard hardware / players to the LMS ecosystem: UPnP/DLNA (Sonos), ChromeCast and AirPlay.
