Ws Pro Audio EQ E87V2

E87 was developed for one purpose: to provide a discreet and transparent equalization with the option of a similar color. The "Color" function is not "based on" or an imitation of a similar machine.

Ws Pro Audio say "We used a house script associated with "hardware" machine (linear pulse) to feel the effect of the analog alone can give us. We also added a "saturation" effect, which is a digital saturation. Both effects combine to perfection."

  • Equalizer High quality very transparent.
  • Button "Color" for adding analog character to your audio tracks.
  • Button "Saturation" to add a digital saturation.
  • Very low latency.
  • Very low CPU consumption.

Regrader Lo-Fi Delay

Regrader features multiple audio-degrading modules in the feedback path, resulting in an interesting lo-fi effect. Apart from the basic Echoes section which controls the delay time, feedback, and mix, the plugin also includes a Filter section, as well as Gravel, Horror, and Warble modules. Gravel and Warble control stereo and pitch modulation, whereas Horror distorts the feedback signal via bitcrushing and sample rate reduction. The Filter module contains a resonant low-pass filter which can be modulated as well.

Buzz Cut Audio Clipper

Buzz Cut is a clipper effect featuring a live waveform display which shows the amplitude of the incoming audio signal in real time. The waveform display also shows the area affected by the clipper circuit to help visualize the amount of applied clipping. The plugin’s features are somewhat reminiscent of the old GClip effect by GVST.


SocaLabs has introduced Maths, a freeware VST/AU plugin for processing stereo audio signals based on user-definable math formulas.
Maths is definitely not your standard audio effect. Instead of using knobs and sliders to shape the sound, the user should instead input a formula which will tell the plugin what to do. It is possible to define up to four automatable parameters which can be adjusted using the four provided knobs or via
DAW automation. Maths supports 25 built-in functions, fourteen operators, and one ternary operator.

Bark Of Dog 2 High-Pass Filter

Bark of Dog 2 is a resonant high-pass filter plugin designed for cleaning up the extreme bass frequencies while, at the same time, being able to boost a part of the low-end spectrum. The new version of the plugin expands on the original Bark of Dog by introducing two additional filtering modes: Passive and Combo. The default mode, labeled Classic, is exactly the same as the original Bark of Dog’s single processing mode.
The new filtering modes: The first one, called Passive, is modeled after the classic Pultec passive equalizer design. This filter design is famous because of the “Pultec low-end trick” for boosting the bass frequencies, also known as the “push-pull technique”. The technique essentially consists of removing unwanted bass content while also boosting the cutoff frequency, thus increasing clarity and improving the bass presence at the same time. Bark of Dog 2 does the latter while operating in Passive mode, using the Boost knob to add more bass at the cutoff point. However, when set to Passive mode, Bark of Dog 2 doesn’t remove any frequency content below the cutoff point. It simply works as a single peak EQ band with a fixed curve.

Lazerwave Waveshaping Synthesizer

Lazerwave is a polyphonic virtual synthesizer with three waveshaping oscillators. The oscillators are based on a triangle wave which can be transformed using three different waveshaping modes. The waveshaping is done with an 8-point visual editor which can cover a decent range of timbres. Unfortunately, the waveshaper points can’t be modulated. Instead, the user can modulate the pitch of all three oscillators independently using the two built-in LFO modules.

The plugin also features a simple delay effect with mono, stereo, and ping pong modes. As for the filters, Lazerwave includes a resonant low-pass filter and a high-pass filter with a fixed resonance. The low-pass filter can be modulated with the built-in step sequencer, either synced to host tempo or in freely timed mode. The sequencer can be smoothed out for a more gradual filter modulation.

Riffstation Pro is an amazing tool for beginners and advanced guitar players and will help unlock your potential as a guitarist.

Polyverse Wider

Wider takes the massively popular stereo section from its sibling, Manipulator, and creates the illusion of an expanded stereo image of a mono signal to an awe-inspiring amount of width. However, Wider is a unique stereo plugin in the sense that it is completely “mono-compatible”, meaning that any signal that has been extended will always remain in phase with itself, even if summed to mono.

Thanks to Wider’s one-of-a-kind all pass and comb filtering algorithm, a natural sounding stereo image is created from a mono channel, without compromising the phase between the sides! Instead, Wider cancels itself out when summed to mono, so the original signal is left intact.

Wider can be used to increase the stereo image of any mono signal up to 200% of full stereo for an extra wide, exaggerated effect.

TOM Sci-Fi Synthesizer

Inspired by vintage sci-fi movie sounds and old analog instruments like the Thérémin and Ondes Martenot while creating TOM. The instrument’s sonic properties match the UI panel’s old and gritty vibe, delivering recognizable analog-style sounds. It doesn’s sound particularly authentic in terms of analog emulation, but the tones it generates can be a good fit for vintage-inspired music.

Speculum Free Comb Filter

Speculum Free is a modulation tool capable of operating as a comb filter or as a standard delay effect. The only difference between the two operating modes is in the scaling of the Delay Time parameter. Its range is between 0s and 0.02s while in Comb Filter mode, whereas the maximum value is increased to two seconds while in Delay mode. Obviously, the developer’s idea was to allow for more precise adjustments when using the plugin as a comb filter, as even the smallest of delay time shifts will result in a different sounding timbre.

The plugin also features a built-in low-pass filter with cutoff and resonance controls. The filter is placed outside of the feedback path, so it only affects the signal before it reaches the delay stage. In other words, the feedback signal is not affected by the filter. As a result, the effect is easier to control when working with longer feedback times (to prevent resonance buildups and excess volume) but also somewhat limited as a creative sound design tool. That said, Speculum Free can cover a range of effects, from basic delay and comb filtering to flanging, phasing, and more.

Three oscillators (each with a choice of pulse, triangle/saw and noise waveforms), all three of which can be modulated in a bunch of different ways. For every oscillator, you can modulate the volume, pan, coarse tuning and waveform shape with up to two modulation sources (three LFOs, three envelopes and various external sources like velocity, modulation wheel, aftertouch, etc.). Needless to say, this means that you can program some seriously complex patches without ever leaving the oscillator panel.

Next up are the three envelopes (one ADSR for volume and two ADSRs for modulation) which sound very snappy and which also let you modulate the envelope speed with up to two modulation sources. It is also possible to fine-tune the attack, decay and release curves. Awesome stuff! The three available LFOs are equally cool, allowing the user to modulate the speed of each LFO and apply a fade in to the LFO signal.

Filter: Synister comes with two of those, offering four modes per filter (LPF, HPF, BPF and Ladder) and, once again, up to two modulation sources for the cutoff and resonance parameters. As all other modules, the filters can be turned off in order to reduce the CPU hit. Speaking of which, Synister is a very well optimized synthesizer and at behaves very well both in terms of stability and CPU usage.

Presto has released Acolyte, a freeware monophonic virtual synthesizer in 32-bit VST plugin format for Windows, modeled after the Yamaha CS-01 hardware synth.
Acolyte copies most of Yamaha CS01’s functionality, including its VCO section with oscillator shape, PWM speed, glide, and pitch controls, the VCF section with cutoff, resonance, and modulation controls, as well as the EG and LFO sections. Much like its hardware counterpart, Acolyte is an extremely streamlined synthesizer that can serve as a great learning tool for users interested in understanding the basics of subtractive synthesis. It comes with all the features required for programming basic bass, lead, and SFX patches, yet doesn’t confuse newcomers with any of the advanced stuff.

FAT Filter

FAT Filter is a super-smoth analog filter effect which was designed to keep the CPU hit as low as possible. 
Its only features are cutoff and resonance knobs, and a switch to choose between the low-pass and high-pass filtering modes. If you need any additional features like filter drive, modulation, slope adjustment, or input/output gain controls, FAT Filter is not the tool for you. One pretty decent alternative is FilterCrusher, a saturated filter effect which is available for free download via BPB. But if you’re only looking for a simple utility to filter out the lows and highs in your mix or create filter sweeps with the help of your DAWs built-in automation features, FAT Filter will certainly do the trick.

Mercuriall Greed Smasher

Mesa/Boogie® Grid Slammer modeling.

Guitar processing plugin. It is a highly detailed, circuit-based model of the Grid Slammer overdrive pedal by Mesa/Boogie. Being a virtual overdrive pedal, the plugin is aimed mainly at guitar players and music producers who use distorted guitars in their music, although effects like this one can work equally well for processing virtual instruments and even hardware synthesizers.

The user interface is a replica of the Grid Slammer guitar pedal, featuring a bypass switch and level, tone, and gain knobs. The top panel adds a mono/stereo input switch and a low/high processing quality switch which toggles between 2X and 4X oversampling. The desired input gain value can be typed in by clicking the black bar at the top of the GUI.

PhatNoise Flanger


Flanger, Delay, Phaser, Lo-Fi Bass Filter, ModFilter

JBR Chorus

JBR Chorus, a freeware 8-voice modulation effect.
JBR Chorus has the word chorus in its title, but the plugin’s advanced feature set allows for plenty more modulation effects than just plain old chorusing. This is reflected in the included factory presets as well, which cover various gating, tremolo, and even some fully glitched out patches. It would be nice to see a few more classic chorus patches added to the factory preset bank.

The plugin features eight independent voices, each with individual in/out gain, delay (range between 0 and 100 ms), depth, in/out pan, and pan law controls. The voices can also be soloed and muted. The real fun begins in the modulation section, though. It offers up to 50 modulators with up to 50 modulation targets for each one. At the moment, it is only possible to use LFOs and XY pads as modulation sources, although the developer has stated that future versions of JBR Chorus should also include ADSR envelopes and envelope followers.

Blue Cat's Gain Suite

This plug-in suite is a series of gain utilities which let you control the volume of one or several audio tracks in real time. The interest of these plug-ins resides in their particular features:

First, they include advanced automation MIDI control capabilities (all response curves can be fully customized). Used together with one of our analysis tools or a MIDI controller, these plug-ins let you remotely control and automate the gain of each channel of the audio signal, wherever they reside in the signal path.

Another interesting and exclusive feature is the ability to link several instances of the same plug-in: thanks to our unique data sharing technology, you can control the gain of several tracks at the same time with a single slider.

The package provides a single channel (mono or stereo) as well as a dual channel version with mid/side capabilities for independent control of the left and right or mid and side channels. It can be very useful for stereo widening/narrowing your stereo tracks.

Note: Additional information about stereo widening with mid/side processing can be found in our M/S processing paper.


Gain12, is a simple one-knob affair that allows you to boost or attenuate the channel gain, or trim, by up to 12dB. While it does not have a ton of added features like the more versatile gain solution from Blue Cat Audio, its simple presentation, light footprint, and ease of use makes it a convenient little tool to have around. Due to its high accuracy (up to a tenth of a dB), and the fact that it can be fully automated, Gain12 might be just the plugin you need for proper gain staging in your DAW of choice.


MultiCrusher is a relatively advanced distortion effect with five different distortion algorithms. The plugin comes with two distortion slots, the first one featuring overdrive fat, overdrive weak, and decimator algorithms, and the second one featuring clip and foldback distortion. The first three algorithms only come with the amount control parameter, whereas the foldback/clipper algorithm offers gain, threshold, and multiply adjustments. Setting the multiply parameter to zero effectively puts the foldback algorithm into clipping mode.

The lower section of the interface features anti-aliasing, round, pan, and mix control parameters. The anti-aliasing functionality seems to be based on filtering rather than oversampling, keeping the CPU hit low but resulting in a noticeably duller tone. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing, though, as it can work well for warming up harshly distorted sounds. The mix control adds some of the original audio to the output signal, which can be useful for preserving the transients of percussive sounds or slightly fattening up a sound with some subtle parallel processing.

Overall, the plugin is easy to use and offers a nice range of distortion types.
