A couple free VST's I'm liking (one ePiano and one guitar amp sim & multi-effect)

I have been looking around for some new sounds lately, and I have a couple keepers….I really like lazysnake’s variety of ePiano sounds. Lazysnake is actually donationware, now that I read closer - it’s high-quality and worth a contribution if you start using it a lot. And I can’t believe FreeAmp2 (amp sim with multi-effects) is free - 128 presets that are great starting points for lots of directions - my humbuckers love it. Both of these are WWWWAAAYYY fun to play with in my opinion and the sounds are various & useful. I haven’t tried them together yet (that’s next ;)….. .. .

I agree. Freeamp is awesome. I use it as fx on recorded “dry” guitar. I can check many amp/fx combinations. For ambient “cosmic” pads I like Texture . Besides that I recomend Izotope Vinyl as a vinyl sound simulator.

Thanks for that link to texture! Super cool.

Thanks! I liked those.

My recent trials,

Superwave P8- a VST virtual analog synth.

JX Synth- a very clean sounding oscillator synth.

Bugpass- an easy to use, cool sounding bandpass filter.

Lots of fun. : )

I”ve found only 2 free reverbs which I think are suitable

SIR - impulse reverb
Ambience - nice reverb a bit CPU heavy though

Synths -
VOPM - great FM synth with awesome sound bank
Triangle II - free monophonic analog style synth

I’m enjoying GlaceVerb

FREE and simple to configure with great results.

I used it on my latest narva9 remix

Here’s another huge audio freeware resource. It also has lots of miscellaneous audio apps, but the plug-in/virtual instrument categories are outstanding.

And here is a series of all purpose audio processors, including compressors, expanders, spacers, limiters, etc,

I’ve just re-discovered MDA VSTs which are rather good too. (click “AU & VST Effects” on the top menu bar)

You can download the entire pack, which includes :
Bandisto - Multi-band distortion
BeatBox - Drum replacer
Combo - Amp & speaker simulator
De-ess - High frequency dynamics processor
Degrade - Sample quality reduction
Delay - Simple stereo delay with feedback tone control
Detune - Simple up/down pitch shifting thickener
Dither - Range of dither types including noise shaping
DubDelay - Delay with feedback saturation and time/pitch modulation
Dynamics - Compressor / Limiter / Gate
Envelope - Envelope follower / VCA
Image - Stereo image adjustment and M-S matrix
Leslie - Rotary speaker simulator
Limiter - Opto-electronic style limiter
Loudness - Equal loudness contours for bass EQ and mix correction
Multiband - Multi-band compressor with M-S processing modes
Overdrive - Soft distortion
Re-Psycho! - Drum loop pitch changer
RezFilter - Resonant filter with LFO and envelope follower
Round Panner - 3D panner
Shepard - Continuously rising/falling tone generator
Splitter - Frequency / level crossover for setting up dynamic processing
Stereo Simulator - Haas delay and comb filtering
Sub-Bass Synthesizer - Several low frequency enhancement methods
Talkbox - High resolution vocoder
TestTone - Signal generator with pink and white noise, impulses and sweeps
Thru-Zero Flanger - Classic tape-flanging simulation
Tracker - Pitch tracking oscillator, or pitch tracking EQ
Vocoder - Switchable 8 or 16 band vocoder
VocInput - Pitch tracking oscillator for generating vocoder carrier input

AND Completely free. I’ve read great things about TalkBox which is good for vocal harmonies apparently….very useful when remixing or needing to re-pitch a full vocal or just a note.

I didn’t realise what a problem this was until I started remixing other peoples vocals…..urm, I can just sing it again, what do I do??? lol :)

Update : I’ve added a talkbox demo snippet and a quick tutorial file to my February remix assets.

I’ve fallen in love with the freeware whistle synth plug-in The Shepherd.

Here’s more details about it:

Not only is it fun to sequence, but the resulting sounds sample beautifully into my sawcutter 2.0 softsynth

Dude, that one is insane. Great work on sharing that.
