Truality Audio has released RealSpread, a free VST plugin that widens a sound source.

RealSpread "Stereoizes" a mono audio signal or widens a stereo one, without practically compromising mono compatibility. The spartan GUI conforms to RealSpread's philosophy of simplicity in plugin design.

RealSpread is more effective on single sources, for example a single (mono) Drums Overhead or Room microphone. Of course, you can experiment with stereo sources.

ProjectSAM has released Dystopian Drones, another addition to The Free Orchestra series of free cinematic orchestral libraries for Native Instruments Kontakt.

The library comes with a customized Kontakt user interface with adjustable attack and release times, low-pass filter, distortion, reverb, and a limiter. The user can also apply the optional master equalizer and octaver effects. As for the included drone sounds, the library comes with seven drone samples in total, each around a minute long. The samples are mapped across the keyboard, with each drone sound being stretched across an octave.

The instrument isn’t very versatile, but it does indeed deliver some rather exciting dark cinematic tones. For music producers who want to add a darker vibe to their project, these sounds could be well worth checking out. The source samples are top quality and they can be tweaked to your liking using the built-in effects. Users who don’t own NI Kontakt can load the included drone samples in any sampler instrument capable of loading WAV files.


SQ8ROM is a free rompler virtual instrument offered in VST, VST3, and AU plugin formats for compatible digital audio workstations on PC and Mac. It is a sample-based recreation of the legendary Ensoniq SQ-80 hardware synthesizer. The SQ-80 was the successor of the much-beloved SQ-1 keyboard, featuring 41 additional waveforms and various hardware improvements. Similar to its hardware counterpart, SQ8ROM is a fantastic source of lush 80s-style pads, vintage leads, and warm bass sounds.

The instrument comes with 168 multi-sampled patches. These are all clearly labeled and easily accessible through the plugin’s preset browser. The source sounds can be tweaked using SQ8ROM’s volume envelope and LFO modulation controls. A built-in reverb is also included, courtesy of the MaizeSampler platform which was used as the framework for developing the plugin.
