Free VST Live Looper : Instalooper ( a 64 bit instajungle!)

Some times ago, when i needed to loop/glitch/stutter on the fly i used the “Instajungle” VST effect : a handy VST looper with no GUI (don’t need), that works well with MIDI control

instajungle

Unfortunaly, the development stopped and there’s no chance to see a 64 bit version, or to fix bugs that happen in some hosts.

And then i found the INSTALOOPER VST by AudioBlast !!

instalooper1

Free download : http://www.audioblast.me/downloadinstalooper.html
It’s a free VST for Windows and Linux, coming in 32 bit & 64 bit version.
It does basically the same as Instajungle : loops a part of the incoming signal, all sync’ed to the host.
don’t hesitate to have a look at the manual ! because it’s not obvious that you have to right-click on the buttons to make them act like “toggle” button and not “push” button.

Extract vocals from song with kn0ck0ut VST

Another question our users often ask is “how to extract voice from songs ?”, “how can i make an acapella of this song” ? etc..
Vocal isolation is a black science, it’s the voodoo of audio processing… or just a good old spectral substraction !

The principle is basic, find a part of the song without the voice, and substract it from a part with the voice, so you are left with only the voice part. The ideal situation is where you have the normal song (voice + music) and an instrumental version of the same song.

The magic voice isolator plugin exists !! and it’s free. Continue reading

5 free VST effects for voice : doubler, chorus, pitch changer

Sometimes(very often!)  we need to add effects on our voice recording. To make it sound better, to make it sound thicker, or just to maker it sound incredible!
For widening/thickening, or making choir like voices, you can use : chorus, voice multiplier, voice doubler, stereo wideners.
For radical changes or special FX, you can use harmonizer / pitch changing, genre changer, pitch correction / autotune.

 

Here’s a top 5 of free VST effects for changing the voice :

 

1) Azurite multi voice chorus VST
