Here’s a roundup of plug-ins added today to the freeware thread.

No exciting GUIs – I had to snapshot these! – but some good stuff nonetheless, including the return of some classics …

bitsmacker

Added to AU FX :

Bitsmacker
bitsize & sample rate reducer

Features

* Bit depth range from 0.01 to 32 bit
* Parametric EQ on Input
* Parametric EQ on Output
* Drive adjustment for boost
* Zero-latency
* All values continuously variable, no large steps between values
* A swift kick in the trousers

valhalla

Added to AU/VST FX :

ValhallaFreqEcho
Bode-style frequency shifter + analog echo emulation

Bode-style frequency shifter + analog echo emulation = skull melting chaos.

Sonic results range from subtle chorusing and double tracking, to barberpole phasing and flanging, to runaway echos spinning through your skull, to endless glissandos. Perfect for those Dr. Who sounds, dub, and all of your psychedelic needs.

GUI sometime in the future, with more controls, finer tuning abilities.

re-psycho

Added to VST FX :

mda-fx  – various
30 different FX! click the link …

I’m not quite sure when this happened, but recently someone ported all 30 of the classic mda fx to VST universal binary.

Previously, 15 of them had been ported to AU – these were already on the freeware list, and there are still just 15 – but now all 30 are available for VST. They’re all open source now, so if anyone wants to move the other 15 to AU, go ahead!

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
