Christian Budde releases Noise Reduction

Christian Budde Noise Reduction

Christian Budde has releaed Noise Reduction, a VST plugin containing a spectral noise gate optimized build to remove unwanted noise.

The Noise Reduction plugin is based on a spectral gate to filter out unwanted noise in the frequency domain. The gate is based on the lightweight dynamic series and features a soft knee and customizable attack and release times.

Originally this plugin was planned for the KVR’09 developer contest, but in the end I missed the deadline by one day and thus I had to use another plugin for my entry.

Noise Reduction features

  • Highly customisable spectral noise gate
  • Continous and consistent characteristic
  • Fully adjustable soft knee in dB (as margin below the threshold)
  • Several exotic window functions available
  • Low CPU usage
  • Different FFT sizes
  • Manual included
  • Open source (as part of the Delphi ASIO & VST Project)

Noise Reduction is available to download as a freeware VST effect plug-in for Windows PC.

Christian Budde releases Barberpole Flanger and updates Noname EQ to v1.1

Christian Budde Barberpole Flanger

Christian Budde has released Barberpole Flanger, a free effect plug-in for Windows.

Barberpole Flanger offers a simple “Barberpole flanger” implementation. Barberpole flanging is also known as “infinite flanging”, this sonic illusion is similar to the Shepard tone effect. The sweep of the flanged sound seems to move in only one direction (“up” or “down”) infinitely, instead of sweeping back-and-forth.

Barberpole Flanger features

  • 4 different algorithms.
  • Up to 8 stages for smooth and blurry flanging.
  • Independent control of depth and modulation speed.
  • Manual included.
  • Open Source.

Christian has also released version 1.1 of Noname EQ, a 7-band tracking EQ, designed for low CPU usage with the best possible sound quality.

Changes in Noname EQ v1.1

  • Manual added.
  • Compatibility fixes.
  • Slightly faster drawing.

Barberpole Flanger and Noname EQ are available as freeware VST effect plug-ins for Windows PC.

Christian Budde Bugpass Lite

Christian Budde has released Bugpass Lite and VST interfaced ASIO-Host, two open source VST plug-ins for Windows PC.

Bugpass Lite is a linear phase bandpass filter with sliders which enable a quick visual reference to the size of the frequency band being passed through.

A light and open source version of my plugin Bugpass. The filter kernel is significantly shorter. This result in less steep filters, but also in a very low CPU usage of only around 0.5% at least on my machine.

Bugpass Lite features

  • Linear phase FIR bandpass filter (512 taps).
  • Based on a Blackman window.
  • Low CPU usage.
  • Open source.
  • Simple user interface.
  • Manual included.

VST interfaced ASIO-Host is an ASIO-Host compiled as VST plug-in. It allows you to use an external device via ASIO through the VST plug-in interface.

A VST plugin that sends the input to the selected ASIO soundcard while the output of the plugin is filled by the ASIO input. This plugin is shipped with the VST Plugin Anaylser and enables external hardware measurements.

VST interfaced ASIO-Host features

  • Open source.
  • Simple user interface.
  • Manual included.
