VST Warehouse - Tokyo Dawn Labs - TDR Kotelnikov- VST Plugin


TDR Kotelnikov is a wideband dynamics processor combining high fidelity dynamic range control with deep musical flexibility. As a descendant of the venerable TDR Feedback Compressor product family, Kotelnikov has directly inherited several unique features such as a proven control scheme, individual release control for peak and RMS content, an intuitive user interface, and powerful, state of the art, high-precision algorithms.

With a sonic signature best described as "stealthy", Kotelnikov has the ability to manipulate the dynamic range by dramatic amounts, while carefully preserving the original tone, timbre and punch of a musical signal. As such, it is perfectly suited to stereo bus compression as well as other critical applications.

Kotelnikov does not try to emulate any previously available device. The concept is a proud digital processor, it is the original.

Notable features:
  • 64-bit floating point precision for all relevant calculations.
  • Multi-rate processing structure for highest accuracy.
  • "Delta" oversampled signal path (bit transparent at 0dB gain reduction).
  • Super fast, yet natural sounding compression.
  • Control scheme based on "Crest factor", offering independent release controls for peak and RMS events.
  • Flexible sidechain highpass filter.
  • Advanced stereo linking options optimized for the stereo bus.
  • Delta preview mode to preview the difference between compressed and original signal.
  • Latency compensated bypass (processing doesn't interrupt).
  • Extensive documentation

VST Warehouse - vacuumsound - ADT- VST Plugin


                                         FL Studio View

ADT - Artificial Double Tracking is a plug-in which emulates the "Artificial Double Tracking" technique invented by The Beatles at Abbey Road Studios. It takes a mono input signal and generates a stereo signal with the original signal panned to one side and the ADT signal panned to the other.
ADT - Artificial Double Tracking

The ADT technique was developed at Abbey Road Studios by engineers recording The Beatles in the 1960s. To free John Lennon from having to sing everything twice for real double tracking they came up with an artificial replacement: they sent the original signal to another tape machine and re-recorded it. Due to the physical distance between record and playback heads the new signal was delayed. The length of the delay depends on the tape speed (the slower the tape is running the longer it takes for the signal to travel from the record to the playback head). However, due to the machine's (small amounts of) Wow and Flutter the delay time was not fixed but varied slightly, giving an additional chorus-like effect. 

The ADT plug-in takes a mono input signal and creates a stereo output. The original input signal will be output on one channel, the new ADT signal on the other. Blending the two is also possible. The plug-in allows to control the delay time (10 - 50ms), Wow and Flutter (both with intensity in % and frequency). All values are based on the technical data of the tape machines that was originally used to create this effect.

Controls:
  • Delay: the time the ADT signal is delayed, 10 - 50 ms.
  • Dra Level: the level of the original signal.
  • ADT Level: the level of the ADT signal.
  • ADT Pan: the pan position of the ADT signal, the original signal is positioned at the opposite side.
  • Wow: amount of low frequency playback speed variation, 0 - 0.2%.
  • WowFreq.: low frequency playback speed variation rate, 0 - 6Hz.
  • Waveform: waveform of Wow, Sine or Triangle.
  • Flutter: amount of high frequency playback speed variation, 0 - 0.2%.
  • FlutFreq.: high frequency playback speed variation rate, 4 - 60Hz.
  • Waveform: waveform of Flutter, Sine or Triangle

Homegrown Sounds - Astralis Orgone Lite



Astralis Orgone is a "Dual Sample" based Synthesizer. It is the next generation of the Astralis Range and is highly optimized with great improvements in CPU use and especially load times. It is a rounded synth capable of sounds ranging from Trance Style Rhythms to Hard Leads and excels at Pads, Atmospheres and FX. Great care has been taken into developing a logical layout and many useful control features, such as double click resets and CTRL fine control adjustments. It comes with 128 presets and 150 samples, though you can add your own samples very easily. 

Astralis Orgone Lite is the free version of Astralis Orgone with a reduced feature set. It is free, fully functional and a feature packed synth in its own right. It includes 128 presets and the diversity of sound created from 25 samples demonstrates the power of the Astralis System. Great for creating atmospheric Pads/Ambience/FX as well as Trancegate, Modulated and Arpeggiated Rhythms. The synth is free to use but donations are always appreciated to support future developments. More details here.

Michael Ourednik - Argotlunar



Argotlunar is a real-time delay-line granulator. It breaks up an incoming audio stream into short samples (Grains). Each grain can have random settings of amplitude, panning, duration, delay, pitch, glissando, filter and envelope. The output of all grains is mixed and sent to the main output. The main output can be fed back into the main input.
