Perspective Sound releases Swoosh
Perspective Sound has released Swoosh, a freeware VST effect plug-in for Windows PC.
Recreate that late-70’s early 80’s drum sound of short delay and pitch shift. You could do this with routing on some hosts, but this is much quicker & easier to set up — and Swoosh’s quick and dirty analog-style pitch shift component doesn’t have the overhead of formant-preserving, etc. algorithms that standard pitch shifters have.
This plugin uses Laurent de Soras‘ FFTReal libraries.
Visit Perspective Sound for more information and a link to download Swoosh.
