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
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 !!
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.
It’s time for a selection of free VST plugins that don’t produce any noise, nor have something to do with sounds.
Plugins for storing comments / any text in your DAW project, or for displaying RSS news in real time, showing the time of the day, etc.. they’re all here : here’s a list of utility plugins !
This was a free plugin by ProXL, it’s Windows only & 32 bit : you can add any number of instances in your project and take some notes, the notes are saved with your project.
It works well, even in host that steals the key-press like Ableton.
You can choose a background color, mix any font/color/style.
Perfect for saving comments or lyrics or anything you want to type.
