SampleScience 606 Koncept

 606 Koncept is sample-based emulation of the TR-606 drum machine by Roland. Unlike its hardware counterpart, the 606 Koncept plugin by SampleScience doesn’t come with a built-in step sequencer. It does, however, feature the original 606 drum sounds.

The plugin includes seven drum channels (bass drum, snare, low tom, high tom, open hi-hat, closed hi-hat, cymbal) and three FX layer channels (vinyl, tape, sub). The drum channels feature volume, pan, and decay control knobs. The user can also set the pitch from -2 to +2 semitones. The FX channels have adjustable volume, pan, decay, and release.

More control parameters are available in the plugin’s top panel. This is where you’ll find the multi-mode LFO, filter cutoff (high-pass and low-pass), output volume, glide, and reverb controls. The user can also fine-tune the velocity curve and set the polyphony mode (polyphonic, monophonic, or legato).

GSi VariSpeed

 VariSpeed emulates the Watkins (WEM) Copicat IC400 tape delay, one of the most sought-after vintage tape delay units. The IC400 was WEM’s first echo machine. The unit is known for its variable-speed belt drive motor, which, as the moniker “VariSpeed” implies, allows the IC400 to change the delay time.

The original Copicat IC400 is unusually flexible for a vintage tape delay unit. It can pull off short slapback delays and groovy off-beat delays with ease. IC400’s secret sauce, though, are those never-ending swirly echo swells that can take a life of their own.

The user can adjust the input signal for the left and right audio channels, the motor speed (delay time), repeat rate (delay length), swell (delay level), and the tone. The green, white, and red buttons toggle the three delay pickup heads. An on/off switch is also included as a quick and easy bypass method.

 BUSTERse bus compressor.

The plugin features the usual set of compressor controls (attack, release, threshold, and ratio), a makeup gain knob, and a dry/wet control. It also features a sidechain input with a high-pass filter and transient controls.

Optionally, the user can switch on the Turbo mode, which lets the compressor affect the incoming signal’s entire frequency range. Otherwise, it will focus on the middle frequencies. According to the developer, the Turbo mode emulates the behavior of hardware compressors.

Likewise, the Xformer mode engages the emulated transformer circuit, which affects the impedance, tonal character, and the overall balance of the processed signal. To bypass the plugin altogether, press the Main switch.

Baby Comeback

 Baby Comeback is a free delay plugin based on Baby Audio’s popular Comeback Kid delay/echo effect. 

Much like its bigger brother, Baby Comeback CM can sound modern and clean, as well as vintage and lo-fi. You can use it for adding a subtle wide delay to a lead vocal, or as a massive vintage tape echo for your next shoegaze track.

There are four delay flavors to choose from. The “Wide” mode sounds clean while expanding the stereo image. The “Analog” mode is inspired by vintage tape delay units and bucket brigade echoes of yesteryear. “Saucey” delivers a lush delay sound that works exceptionally well on synth leads and pads. Finally, the “Cheap” mode emulates 80s rack delays and their irresistibly quirky lo-fi sounds.

Another feature worth mentioning is the Duck control. It will automatically lower the volume of the delayed signal when the input signal is present. This feature is a lifesaver if you want to add a lot of delay to a vocal while keeping the lyrics intelligible. The delay will remain audible, but the main vocal will cut right through it.

Valhalla Space Modulator is a versatile modulation effect plugin.
Eleven algorithms allow you to get through-zero flanging, barberpole flanging, detuning, doubling, strange echoes, reverbs, and all sorts of effects that defy description.


 Nils K1v, a plugin that faithfully emulates the Kawai K1 digital synthesizer.

Nils K1v is a sample-based instrument that recreates the sounds and the functionality of the Kawai K1 synthesizer. The plugin includes K1’s original factory bank and all ROM cards, adding up to 768 presets in total. The preset browser includes a search feature and the ability to edit and store presets. Also, the Nils K1v plugin can import, and export SysEx presets and banks from and back to the original Kawai K1. It can be used as a patch editor for the hardware synthesizer.


Psyscope Beat-Synced Oscilloscope

Psyscope is a beat-synced oscilloscope that can analyze up to four audio channels simultaneously. The waveforms from each channel can be summed, showed individually, or displayed as differently colored layers. The latter option is particularly useful in electronic dance music, especially with “four on the floor” beats where multiple percussive instruments play at the exact same time.



PreFET, a saturation plugin that uses machine learning to emulate a 70s tabletop cassette recorder’s transistor preamp.

PreFET uses an artificial neural network algorithm that has simulates the transistor preamp found in an audio cassette recorder from the 1970s. The plugin takes advantage of the same technology that was used for the PreTube, a premium tape saturation plugin from the same developer. Unlike the PreTube plugin, which emulates three different preamp models, PreFET focuses on a single transistor preamp model.


CHOW Tape Model

CHOW Tape Model is a physical model of an analog tape machine, implemented as an audio plugin.
The software is based on a physical model of an analog tape machine that was developed as a class project for Music 420 at Stanford University. Although the plugin was initially intended to model the Sony TC-260 tape machine, the algorithm was later changed to be a more flexible simulation of a wider variety of analog reel-to-reel machines.
 The plugin emulates all the sonic components of an analog tape machine. This includes the saturation and other non-linearities that can enhance the sound, as well as the lo-fi aspects of analog tape that are used for a “vintage” effect. There is a dedicated section for adjusting the depth and rate of wow and flutter that is applied to the signal. The user can also fine-tune the bias, drive, and saturation amount in the hysteresis section.

GMH Audio Wave Destroyer,

Wave Destroyer is a free distortion effect programmed by GMH Audio, the developer behind the free Buzz Cut soft clipper plugin, which we covered back in 2018. Whereas Buzz Cut focused on a single method of audio distortion, the new Wave Destroyer effect delivers a much more extensive arsenal of distortion types. The plugin also includes a set of frequency shaping features that make it a much more powerful sound design tool.
The plugin features three distortion modes: Saturate, Distort, and Destroy. Each mode can be fine-tuned using the Drive control, as well as the Asymmetry and Bias adjustments. Wave Destroyer also includes two EQ stages (pre-distortion and post-distortion), input and output gain adjustments, oversampling, a DC filter, a mix control, and a bypass switch. The two equalizer sections feature five adjustable frequency bands. It’s possible to link the two EQs for more effortless operation.
Thanks to its three distortion algorithms, Wave Destroyer is a rather versatile distortion utility. You can use it as a subtle saturation tool, a stompbox-style fuzz distortion unit, or as a crazy distortion effect for total audio annihilation.

2RuleFilter is a free Moog type-based filter plugin for PC & Mac with expanded functionalities for crazy, filtered glitch sounds.

The plugin is based on a classic, self-resonant Moog filter and features lowpass, highpass & bandpass settings. The filter cutoff frequency can be controlled manually, or by an LFO or by an envelope follower. It’s not a basic filter but has some cool additional features.

One of these is called “scrambler” that plays filtered signals randomly depending on the selected beat. Using this function, you can maintain the rhythmic, choppy, buffered, and tempo sync output. The mix knob mixes wet/dry signals. Further, there is a bit-crusher onboard that produces harsh, distorted sounds.

  • High Pass, Low Pass, Band Pass filter
  • Modulation of filter cut-off frequency by LFO (tempo-sync),  manually or envelope follower (reversible)
  • Bit crusher (16bit to 1 bit)
  • Scrambler that divides one measure to different time intervall and plays beats randomly.
  • Mix balance in between dry(input signal) and wet(filtered and bit crushed).
  • The sensitivity that allows the filter cut-off frequency be changed from roughly to smoothly. This effect is the same of parameter smoothing

Big-Sur Diode Clipper

Big-Sur is a freeware emulation of a diode clipper guitar pedal. There’s no information on which specific guitar stompbox is emulated, but the plugin seems to be based on the classic Big Muff distortion pedal. The developers describe Big-Sur as a stompbox that is suitable for distorted rhythm guitars and heavy leads, with a wide distortion spectrum and plenty of fuzz.
he interface features a bypass switch, four control knobs (Sustain, Level, Tone, and Mix), and two on/off switches – one for the Tone control and one for the oversampling feature. The user can also adjust the GUI size (from 80% to 125%) and control the graphics quality (useful for reducing the RAM usage).

Tape Cassette 2 is an audio plugin that emulates the warmth, noise and character of old tape cassettes. Following up from our well received Tape Cassette 1, we've updated the plugin with a sleek interface and more changes under the hood too.

Along with a brand new selectable Type 1 Cassette Impulse Response (IR), we've improved the saturation algorithm, wow & flutter engine and implemented real sampled tape noise, all which results in a wonderfully warm and more accurate vintage sound. In addition to this you now have two VU meters to monitor your audio as well as selectable oversampling. Specifics are listed below:

  • Selectable Type 1 Cassette Impulse Response (IR)
  • Dynamic saturation curve algorithm implementing hysteresis and including oversampling
  • Wow & Flutter engines rebuilt to focus on smoother emulation
  • Real sampled noise from a Type 1 Cassette
  • Low Pass range increased down to 5kHz

Ton-Geraet 1 (SyS TG1)

SyS TG1 features a dual-voice architecture with wave-morph sequencing, frequency modulation, and a few other interesting sound-shaping tools. SyS TG1’s main standout feature is the wave-morph sequencer which draws inspiration from the legendary SID sound chip which was used in Commodore 64 home computers. The sequencer included in SyS TG1 mimics the behavior of the SID chip’s generic wavetable sequencer but without its 8-bit limitations. The wave-morph sequencer will smoothly morph between waveform shapes as the sound is playing, resulting in a uniquely complex sound character with plenty of overtones and subtones.

SyS TG1 comes with a range of other interesting synthesis features, too. There’s the 12-bit low-pass filter inspired by the Akai S-1000 hardware sampler. A dual LFO unit is installed for handling modulation, along with per-voice DADSR envelopes. Things get even more interesting with the “Stoerstrahlung” button which emulates the unstable behavior of analog gear. As the developers at SyS Audio Research describe it, this control simulates the way in which music generated by analog instruments and sequencers would sound completely different after playing continuously for several hours. 
Another handy option for sonic manipulation comes in the form of SyS TG1’s multiple oscillator routing modes. The mixing-routine switch on the back of the GUI is used to choose between additive, subtractive, inverse subtractive, and “multiply” routing for the two voltage-controlled oscillators.



Fury-800, a freeware emulation of the Korg Poly-800.
Its digitally controlled oscillators, noisy paraphonic filter, and the even more noisy pseudo-stereo chorus effect, all add up to create these wonderfully lo-fi, unstable sounds that almost sound as if they were captured from a VHS tape. Add some dusty plate reverb to the Poly-800’s output, and you’re in 80s synthwave heaven.You get all the synth engine features of the original and a few smart add-on options like the “God Mode” for full polyphony and 64 voices of polyphony with full velocity support.

LatticeReverb is a reverb using lattice structure. Equipped with 16 delays per channel.
Lattice Reverb is based on a reverb algorithm which uses the all-pass filter lattice topology and a delay grid with sixteen all-pass filters per channel. That’s the technical part of it, and I have to admit that I don’t understand any of it. The bottom line is, Lattice Reverb is a reverb plugin that uses some advanced mathematical algorithms to process sound.

The types of effects you can achieve with Lattice Reverb range from glitchy echoes and pitch-shifted delays to huge dark reverb and pure chaos. You can get some totally crazy sounds out of it.

vMPC2000XL - An MPC2000XL emulator

vMPC2000XL plugin is a close emulation of the Akai MPC2000XL sampler. The software doesn’t emulate the signal path of the original hardware, so it doesn’t color the sound per se. However, it simulates the MPC’s digital voice filter. According to the info provided by the developer, this aspect of the emulation was “tweaked by ear” to resemble the hardware as closely as possible. On the other hand, the internal circuits are not emulated, so the samples won’t sound different simply because you’re playing them via this plugin. 
More importantly, though, vMPC2000XL closely recreates the workflow of the Akai MPC2000XL hardware. Every menu screen and software feature is modeled after the original instrument. As a result, you’re getting an authentic Akai MPC2000XL experience in software format. 


Moss Equalizer

Moss Equalizer works with FFT (Fast Fourier Transform) algorithms and is capable of steep frequency adjustments – from -150dB up to +60dB in the frequency domain of 10Hz to 20kHz.

With such a wide range for adjustments, the Range control in Moss Equalizer is particularly helpful. It lets you specify the minimum and maximum amplitude manually, in dB. Furthermore, the FFT algorithm can be adjusted manually as well with the provided FFT Size control.

Below it, you can choose a visual theme for the interface. Other options include Logarithmic Level and Spline Curves display, a Limiter, a Bypass switch, and a Dry/Wet mix knob for blending dry and equalized signals to taste.

An exciting feature we rarely see in other equalizer plugins is the comb filter modeling. Dialed in purposefully, it is capable of creating a vocoder-like effect. This is accomplished by using frequency characteristics that visually resemble a comb with sharp teeth, so to say. Its peak frequencies are tuned according to musical tonalities and their respective overtones.

Another useful and innovative feature is the ability to load frequency response files. The custom .MEB file format is a plain text file that can be edited with any text editor. The developer has provided a set of example files with comb filter characteristics to help new users explore the plugin’s musical filtering abilities more easily.

What’s even more interesting is that you can load frequency characteristics with a MIDI controller via regular CC mapping. This way, you can actually “play” the comb filters, not unlike a real vocoder.

SN05-G Brickwall Limiter

SN05-G is a straightforward sample peak brickwall limiter best suited for mix bus as the final sound-processing insert in the signal chain, but it can be easily used to treat individual channels as well. Its features are intentionally sparse, so you may concentrate on the sound rather than the tool.
