Acrobatics releases Vento

Acrobatics has released Vento, a free chorus effect plug-in for Windows.

Vento is a high-structured 4 voices chorus which filters every voice with a different harmonic modulation, then the tremolo section gives additional shine and sculpting possibilities using the same voicing architecture.

Every parameter is fully customizable with dedicated knobs for speed and separation of chorusing, giving maximum flexibility and dramatic, smooth changes to the signal, that varies from monophonic tube-flangers to incredibly rich and detailed stereo smearings.

    Sounds great! Very clean. No presets, but it’s freeware, so I should STFU about it. Unforunately they made some really bad GUI design decisions:

    1-too bid, they could easily have made it smaller, with lots of dead space on both left & right sides.

    2)there’s an opaque drop down effect that displays “4-stage diffusion chorus/tremelo” and obscures the controls when the mouse isn’t hovering over the controls as if the controls were grayed out. I though it was a gray out nag at first, like some shareware displays to get you to buy it, but it’s just a stupid animation effect. This REALLY sucks and I won’t use this plugin because that effect annoys me so much.

    3)GUI is too dark with minimal contrast with the lettering. Too hard to read. I hope the whole black as hell, mono chromatic GUIs with no contrast designs die soon. At least on websites I can use the “stylish” plugin in firefox to change colors, but not here.

    I agree on the drop down animation. That is just annoying. The developer might change the GUI in an update if we let him know how we feel…

    @Girardi, you can set the lid to be always open on the back panel (click on the little Acrobatics logo to access it).
