Krakli Richman-2 available
Krakli recently released Richman-2, a free Accoustic/Phys-Mod Hybrid.
From the Krakli site:
Using a Hybrid of Physical Modelling and FM synthesis, Richman-2 is designed to be an expressive plug-in, which in the right hands can make real sounding and organic sounds. Specialising in plucked or struck tones Richman-2 can also turn its hand to a great many other types of sounds.
Richman-2 comes complete with a patch bank containing 100 preset sounds. Many thanks to JoMal for the excellent Demo tune and his patches, also thanks to blaster78 and Kriminal for their patches.. This plug-in replaces Richman1, Meta4x2 and Rticul8.
