eaReckon has released version 1.0.1 of the FREE87 series, a collection of free VST effect plug-ins for Windows.
The FREE87 series is based on the upcoming ANALOG87 series which features a set of 5 high quality analog-style VST effects for Windows. Instead of just providing a limited demo of the ANALOG87 series, eaReckon is glad to offer fully working free plugins using the same engine.
Changes in FREE87 v1.0.1
- FR-LIMIT: The main algorithm has been improved.
A light and unwanted distortion could have occurred in some specific situations (on solo electric pianos or pure sine waveforms for example). With its new algorithm and a new ‘Slow’ (release) option, FR-LIMIT should be now distortion safe while keeping its sound properties and its brickwall specification.
- FR-EQUA: The integrated limiter is now optional and based on the new version of FR-LIMIT.
- FR-COMP: Some of the fixed attack and release values have been changed. They are now: Attack : 3ms (fast) / 20ms (med) / 40ms (slow), Release : 30ms (fast) / 150ms (med) / 300ms (slow). The integrated limiter is now optional and based on the new version of FR-LIMIT.
- FR-GATE: A potential bug related to ‘channels linking’ has been fixed.
The FREE87 series plug-ins are available to download as free VST effect plug-ins for Windows PC.
