Protoplug ~ Scriptable Audio Plugins


Create audio plugins on-the-fly with LuaJIT.

Protoplug is a VST/AU plugin that lets you load and edit Lua scripts as audio effects and instruments. The scripts can process audio and MIDI, display their own interface, and use external libraries. Transform any music software into a live coding environment!

Cross-platform: builds for Windows, Mac OS X and Linux. This means that all protoplug scripts are compatible with these platforms and can be loaded into a huge amount of audio software (glory to JUCE).

Fast: Use the speed of LuaJIT, and perform DSP tasks as efficiently as old school C implementations.

Free and open source: Want a new feature? Add it yourself. The source is MIT-licensed and available on Github.

CAPS ~ C* Audio Plugin Suite


CAPS is a collection of audio plugins comprising basic virtual guitar amplification and a small range of classic effects, signal processors and generators of mostly elementary and occasionally exotic nature.

The plugins aim to combine the highest sound quality with computational efficiency and zero latency*.

FreqAnalyst ~ Spectrum Analyzer VST


Blue Cat’s FreqAnalyst is a free spectrum analyzer plug-in that lets you monitor the spectral content of your audio signal in real time.

This plug-in has been designed to provide extreme smoothness and high resolution for both time and frequency: unlike most spectrum analyzers, Blue Cat’s FreqAnalyst is able to display continuous variations even with a very high frequency resolution, thanks to its unique smooth interpolation algorithms.

Most aspects of the audio to frequency display conversion can be managed, which lets you total control over the monitoring. A special thresholding system has been developed to help you see the important parts of the spectrum easily. In case you need extra precision in a particular frequency range, you can zoom the display and check the part of the graph you are interested in.

Tune It! ~ Tune Your Instruments


Tune It! is a piece of software that helps musicians to tune their instrument. It can also be used to monitor the pitch during live performance.

Tune It! is based on a original and very accurate pitch detection algorithm. It can tune a wide range of instruments such as guitar, bass, piano, flute, violin, saxophone, etc…

Tune It! is available for both Windows and Macintosh platforms. It can be ran as a standalone application or as a plugin within a VST or AU host.

Features:

  • Automatic note recognition from A-1 up to A6.
  • Programmable A440 reference from 400 to 480Hz (step of 1Hz or 0,1Hz).
  • Programmable Precision
  • The highest precision, the finest tuning.
  • The lower precision, the lower latency (suited for tuning control during live performance)

Dynamic Audio Normalizer ~ Advanced Normalization


Dynamic Audio Normalizer is a library for advanced audio normalization purposes. It applies a certain amount of gain to the input audio in order to bring its peak magnitude to a target level (e.g. 0 dBFS). However, in contrast to more “simple” normalization algorithms, the Dynamic Audio Normalizer dynamically re-adjusts the gain factor to the input audio. This allows for applying extra gain to the “quiet” sections of the audio while avoiding distortions or clipping the “loud” sections. In other words: The Dynamic Audio Normalizer will “even out” the volume of quiet and loud sections, in the sense that the volume of each section is brought to the same target level. Note, however, that the Dynamic Audio Normalizer achieves this goal without applying “dynamic range compression”. It will retain 100% of the dynamic range within each “local” region of the audio file.

The Dynamic Audio Normalizer is available as a small standalone command-line utility and also as an effect in the SoX audio processor as well as in the FFmpeg audio/video converter. Furthermore, it can be integrated into your favourite DAW (digital audio workstation), as a VST plug-in, or into your favourite media player, as a Winamp plug-in. Last but not least, the “core” library can be integrated into custom applications easily, thanks to a straightforward API (application programming interface). The “native” API is written in C++, but language bindings for C99 Microsoft.NETJavaPython and Pascal are provided.
