Runagate releases Mistress Liquifaction, a modification of Jack Dark’s Mister Liquid, a modulated delay FSU effect plug-in.
From the manual:
The first thing to know about Mistress Liquifaction is that it is a wildly modulated series of 2 stereo pairs of delays and a reverb, also modulated. The things that modulate these effects’ delay time, feedback, reverb size, damping, etc. are threefold: a step sequencer, an LFO and Jack Dark’s automated vector joystick.
Mistress Liquifaction VST v0.1 comes with a default bank of 16 presets. The included .pdf manual has detailed information on the controls.

Pluggotic has released Shattersync, a modified version of DarkWare’s Shattershot Lite.
Shattersync is a stuttering/repeating effect plug-in based on modulated delays triggered by a step-sequencer. Repeats of all sorts, glitches and noises, random events and singular/casual phrases re-arrangements can be achieved quickly, on both melodic and rhythmic material.
For those knowing and loving Shattershot Lite VST, Shattersync is essentially a host (and therefore BPM) synchronized version of its predecessor. it should be noted that the work I made to modify the creature will not make it sound any better and possibly all the voodoo magic spawned from Shattershot Lite will disappear, replaced by a tamed, ordered, boring, mechanism of nothingness.
The alterations of the original design are focused on:
- New modulations, now host-synchronized.
- A new independent stuttering FX in the signal chain.
- MIDI implementation.
- New GUI.

DarkWare/NOVUZEIT developer Jack Dark has released source files of his SynthEdit plug-ins.
As a parting gift to the SynthEdit scene I have decided to release all of my DarkWare and NOVUZEIT .SE1 source files for free.
Jack decided to cease VST production a while ago.
You can download the archives in one single .ZIP file from Rapidshare.
Novuzeit recently released Neon Black, which contained a puzzle. Upon solving this puzzle (which Mark Piotrowski did) the Nightmare Machine would be unleashed.
This plug-in was supposedly the last DarkWare plug-in ever made, but it was never released so people wondered if it was actually real. You can read more about this story here.
The Nightmare Machine is still beta (and will stay that way) and contains at least one bug. From the included readme: If the audio goes completely to the right channel, play with the reverb knob to get things back to normal.
Also note that this thing can get nasty loud, so mind your ears and equipment.
