This one is a free VST effect : it lets the audio signal pass thru it but when you hit the “-18” button, it replaces the audio with a BEEP sinus sound @ 1KHz ! Censoring the sound like in TV shows. It also works with the MIDI keyboard. Beep volume is available from the parameters (but not the interface).
Here’s the demo mp3 from the website :
It can even encode your sound to make sound like a “crypted TV program” (with the same encryption sound used by the very first french pay TV channel in the mid 80’s)
This rhythm making software is basic and come with rock solid drum kit : 909 oriented, with hard & hardcore bass drum + closed hihat / open hihat / claps / snare & some nice breakbeats.
there are 6 slots for user sounds.
the user interface is straight forward, 909 style, it takes about 0.2 seconds to understand and master it.
there is distorsion unit (per sample)
you can also reverse the sound
the shuffle slider adds some groove to your beats !
tempo up to 250 BPM,etc..
The software come with funky presets : hip hop beat , jungle beat, hardcore gabber rhythm…
of course, it lacks some of refinements we found on our “modern” plugins, like time stretch / slice , accents, filters etc.. But from the limitation come the creation!
Now that we have a good pumpin’ beat, we want some drivin’ TB303’s aciiid bassline: Continue reading →
The real time pitch correction, the “autotune“, is the effect we all love to hate (and vice versa).
T-Pain, Cher, Daft Punk, Tatayet, Black Eyed Peas, and so many artists have used it creatively, for getting this weird robotic voice feeling.
We have searched all around the interweb, and tested for you : 5 FREE autotune VST plugins, to use in real time in any sequencer or DAW. We tend to prefer vocoder over the pitch corrector/autotune effect, but anyway, here’s the TOP 5 :
We already talked about this one in the “Voice FX post”, because it can do wicked chorus effects !
It’s also a nice pitch corrector autotune plugins : it’s intended to sound robotic, and works great for that “T-Pain effect”. Do you belieeeeeve it is free ? => yes it is.
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
Azurite chorus VST
This great chorus can work on many type of sources : guitar, voice, etc..
It works nicely for voice, it’s not too hard/harsh and does a good job on mono inputs for spreading voices and give a stereo effect.
– now the hack for getting keyboard events in Ableton is less dirty 🙂
– fixed potential bug on close plugin
– 64 bit version for Windows
– Fixed bug with audio buffer
– Added hack for Ableton Live 9 : plugin should get keyboard keys input now
– Added support for VST Key (not tested ! we don’t have Cubase)
VST Speek text to speech is 100% freeware, the plugin is based on the Software Automatic Mouth (SAM) vocal synthesis software created by Softvoice Inc for the Commodore 64.
The original C64 software has been reverse engineered and ported to C by Sebastian Macke : http://simulationcorner.net/index.php?page=sam
Now that Wavosaur can work natively on 64 bit systems, we need some 64 bit VST plugin effects that are full 64 bit. Many of the free VST plugins are still 32 bit, but we have found some nice 64 bit plugins, for your needs : compressor, limiter, reverb, equalizer, filter, distorsion !
This software compressor is very clean, works nice with any input, and has all the controls you need. You can use it on the master if you want, it has this transparent quality. It’s free, it’s x64, it’s funky.
Wavosaur is now available as 32 bit application AND 64 bit application !
The 64 bit version runs natively on 64 bit Windows system, like Windows 7 and Windows 8, this means Wavosaur can adress more RAM. And of course can run 64 bit VST plugins.
In this 220.127.116.11 version we also fix bug with the VST host, that was causing some plugins to stop working, like the Izotope plugins.
The VST compatibility is improved !
Imagine you have a sound file that was badly recorded, with no possibility to re-record, and with no clean version : how to deal with the clipping, the saturation, the distorsion ?
Imagine you have a mix/(pre)mastering that was crushed-to-death in a “loudness war” fashion and you have lost all the original files :
how to fix this mess ?
Is there a possibility to clean / smooth the sound ?
