AuraPlug updates Whamdrive to v2.0
AuraPlug has released version 2.0 of Whamdrive, a freeware distortion/pitch shifter VST effect plug-in for Windows PC.
It allows you to pitch an incoming audio stream in realtime with an external MIDI foot controller or with the GUI controls. Whamdrive features 14 different pitch modes. The harmony note and the input signal are mixed together as if two guitars were playing simultaneously in the first nine modes. Whamdrive works like a classic pitch shifter in the last five modes. The effect also includes a distortion unit with cabinet simulation.
Changes in Whamdrive v2.0
- Complete rewrite of the user interface and voice management (now fully written in C++).
- Fixed multicore bug.
- Improved compatibility with some hosts (FL Studio, Tracktion, ACID Pro and Cubase).
- Very short loading and initialization times.
Whamdrive is available as a freeware VST effect plug-in for Windows.
