SoundToys has announced the release of MicroShift, a micro pitch shifter effect plug-in that allows for widening of your sound.
MicroShift makes it wide. Be it vocals, synths, guitars, backing vocals or whatever you choose to run through it, MicroShift uses this classic studio trick to spread out, thicken up, or give a new space to any track you hit with it. Of course, the SoundToys spin takes it beyond the original with the new FOCUS knob that lets you push and widen specific ranges without affecting the rest of the track.
Amazing for adding “shimmer” to a vocal, or “air” to a guitar. Control of the detune amount, delay, and a mix knob let you tweak the effect to fit just right in the track. MicroShift combines the classic sound of the hardware with new advanced features, and an intuitive interface. Simply huge.
MicroShift for Windows and Mac (VST/AU/RTAS/AAX) is available to purchase for $89 USD. Users of MicroShift Little can upgrade for $49 USD, and MicroShift Little is also included with a purchase of MicroShift before March 4th, 2014.

WOK has announced the release of PITCHD, the latest in its series of free one-trick-pony effect plug-ins for Windows.
PITCHD is a delay plugin with a pitch shifter in the echo path. So each echo is pitched up or down according to the fine tune or semitone knob.
The delay time can be set in milliseconds or synced to host, and the plugin can be used as insert or send effect.
Let the echo’s pitch drift away softly with a slight detune or up or down by a maximum of one octave to create strange effects.
PITCHD for Windows (VST) is available as freeware.

Plugin Boutique has launched a 24-hour sale on OhmBoyz, offering a 50% discount on the delay effect plug-in by Ohm Force.
Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it’s just the highly acclaimed OhmBoyz, a delay unit that starts with 4 pre-delays, each offering independent sync, level and pan controls.
This then feeds into 2 more delay units with a bunch of features associated with each: again, tempo sync, level and pan controls, but also a couple of rather well-endowed filters consisting of peak, low-pass, high-pass, bandpass and a resonance control.
OhmBoyz is available to purchase at 50% off on December 27th, 2013.

Expert Sleepers has announced version 1.1.0 of Little Spacey, which is now available in AAX format for Pro Tools 10 & 11 on Mac OS X.
Little Spacey is delay effect, inspired by classic analogue ‘bucket brigade’ delays but with refinements only possible in the digital arena – not to mention a maximum delay time that would cost a small fortune to realise in hardware.
Great care has been taken to give Little Spacey the smooth, creamy sound which makes analogue delays still popular today.
Little Spacey for Windows and Mac (VST/AU/AAX) is available to purchase for $29 USD (plus VAT if applicable).

WOK has announced REFO-D, a free delay effect plugin for Windows.
I like plugins that are neatly arranged and easy to use for simple tasks, instead offering 20 panels with 300 knobs
So I will do some of these one-trick-ponies, as my free time allows.
#1: REFO-D, a delay with a reverse-forward output option and a stereo panner.
Also featuring host sync, a filter in the feedback path and distortion.
REFO-D is available to download from WOK’s Facebook page (no like required).
