Cloud Seed is an algorithmic reverb plugin built in C# and C++ for emulating huge, endless spaces and modulated echoes. The algorithms are based on the same principles as manu classic studio reverb units from the 1980’s, but Cloud Seed does not attempt to model any specific device, or even to be a general-purpose reverb plugin at all. It is best employed as a special effect, for creating thick, lush pads out of simple input sounds.
CHOW is a digital distortion effect designed for maximum truculence, somewhere between a true half-wave rectifier and a noisy vintage compressor. Useful for mixing guitars, drums, even vocals when a heavily degraded sound is desired. Feel free to build and use for your own enjoyment!
Acon Digital Multiply is a free and versatile chorus effect with a unique twist. Each simulated voice is processed with a phase randomizing filter so that unpleasant comb filter effects are avoided. The effect can be used to simulate the effect of several performers playing the same tones simultaneously, to widen the spatial image or to create special effects for sound design. Multiply can simulate up to 6 additional voices and both the pitch and the loudness of the voices can be modulated. There is also an integrated equalizer consisting of low cut, low shelf, high shelf and high cut filters that can be applied to the effect signal. An integrated pre-delay section makes it possible to create modulated and diffuse echo effects.
Argotlunar is a tool for creating surreal transformations of audio streams. Specifically, it is a real-time delay-line granulator. It disintegrates an audio stream into short samples (grains). Each grain can have random settings of amplitude, panning, duration, delay, pitch, glissando, filter and envelope. The output of all grains is mixed together into a stream which can be fed back into the main input.
Time-related parameters can be synced to the host tempo, for rhythmic and pulsing textures. Pitch-related parameters can be quantized for harmonic and melodic effects. Feedback can create chaotic, densely layered, and distorted sounds.
Most of the parameters can be correlated. Examples:
Filter cut-off correlated with pitch: Higher filter cut-off for grains with higher pitch, and vice versa.
Grain duration correlated with panning: Grains with shorter duration panned to the centre of the stereo field, and grains with longer duration panned wide in the stereo field.
Andes is a standalone software synthesiser, or plugin, in early stages of development. The core of Andes is an original oscillator which uses a pseudo-3D version of Perlin Noise to produce distinctively digital sound.
OwlPlug is a desktop application for Windows and Mac that simplifies VST Plugin management and installation. User installed plugins are automatically discovered and new plugins can be installed through Stores. The default store called OwlPlug Central delivers quality plugins made by the community. Any third party plugin distributors can set up a compatible Store and let owlplug interact with it. OwlPlug is still in a beta stage, all kind of feedbacks are welcomed.
ShuiCast is a plugin for both Winamp and Foobar2000 that provides the ability to broadcast various audio formats to a few of the major broadcasting servers. It is a continuation of the Oddcast/Edcast streaming software that can stream to either Icecast or Shoutcast servers, integrating changes made by the AltaCast and Edcast-Reborn spinoffs.
Stream to IceCast or ShoutCast
Support for Ogg Vorbis, LAME (lame_enc.dll), and AAC (libfaac.dll) – note lame_enc.dll and libfaac.dll must be downloaded separately in order to use these formats
Multiple encoders (you can simultaneously broadcast in multiple formats at the same time)
Standalone application as well as plugin for Winamp, RadioDJ and Foobar2000
Metadata not only from media player (i.e. Winamp) but also from a file, a URL or a window
Peak and RMS Meter
Live Recording (you can switch on/off without disconnecting the encoder)
Sounding good has never been this cheap. Even though FreeAMP may look simple, all the algorithms from our amplifying modeler plugin REAMP are still in there. In this free version, we’ve combined our favourite profiles from REAMP into one universal profile. When processing audio through FreeAMP you’ll get the sound of tape and tube saturation at the same time. It can be used on anything that needs to be vitalized, from single tracks, stems or full mixes. And the best thing is that it is Totally free! (requires an account)
Requires macOS 10.9 or later, Windows 7 (SP1) or later, running a AU, VST or AAX compatible 64-bit host.
