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.

6 free Sampler VST plugins

Sometime you just need a plain good old sampler VST plugin for your tracks :
just load a .wav sample, tweak some envelope, maybe adjust pitch, and add some loop points. No more no less.
You don’t need the bells & whistles of Kontakt, nor gigabytes of library => just load some samples and come on !

So here’s a selection of 6 FREEWARE sampler in VST format:

1. TX16Wx VST

TX16Wx sampler VST

TX16Wx sampler VST

download 100% free : http://www.tx16wx.com/

Available for Windows (32 & 64 bit) & Mac (VST & AU 64 bit)
This one is more than a simple sampler for loading & playing audio files!
It’s the more complete & full featured free sampler.
Tons of modulations & envelope, powerful keyboard mapping…
You can choose between 4 sizes for the UI (from 800X600 to 1280X768)
and the plugin can record from its own inputs (DAW inputs).
This is also the more “up to date” plugin.
It can load wav, aiff ogg, flac + sf2 soundfonts and sfz.
