Plugin Boutique has announced the launch of an exclusive bundle featuring three effect plug-ins by FXpansion.
FXpansion and Plugin Boutique team up to bring you this exclsuive effects bundle featuring Bloom, Maul & Etch!
FXpansion Exclusive Bundle
Bloom is a creative delay effect plugin with additional diffusion network, effects, advanced modulation and much more. Bloom’s varied delay modes and lush diffusion reverb instantly introduce new textures and spaces to your productions. Dig a little deeper to discover new ways of using delay for sound design – use psychedelic effects like frequency shifting and chorus in the feedback path and modulate Bloom’s parameters with step-sequencers and LFOs for an amazing variety of new sounds.
Etch is a versatile filtering effect based on DCAM circuit-modelled technology. Etch’s dual filters let you switch between 4 models for all manner of fat and warm subtractive tone-shaping, with a comb filter type providing mind-bending psychedelic effects.
Maul is a multi-band distortion and tone-shaping plugin with advanced modulation. Maul is suited to all music requiring powerful sound-sculpting abilities – everything from subtle warming and loudness generation to shredding distortion and experimental creative effects.
The bundle is available to purchase exclusively from Plugin Boutique for £138 GBP.
Bedroom Producers Blog is proud to host all of the freeware VST plugins which were developed by Mokafix Audio, with kind permission of the author.
Mokafix Audio has developed a number of high quality guitar pedal emulations and virtual electric piano instruments for Windows, both commercial and freeware.
Unfortunately, none of these were available for download as of recently, so I’ve decided to contact Efflam Le Bivic of Mokafix Audio (now a graphic designer at Native Instruments) personally and ask him if it would be OK to host the freeware ones on BPB. Thankfully, he said yes!
The plug-ins are available to download for Windows (VST), and include the Metal Clone overdrive, Nu-Tron envelope filter, NoAmp! amplifier & cabinet simulation, and Glue Reeds electric piano.

“What Faturator brings to the table is a really fast way of tuning the character of a sound, bringing out more crisp and clarity, focusing on a specific tone or, for that matter, just totally destroying it with distortion”, says Anders Stenberg, CTO. “Considering the positive response we have gotten about the VST/AU versions of Faturator it was really a no-brainer to make it available as a Rack Extension as well”
Faturator is a saturation/distortion unit, providing effects ranging from subtle warm saturation to harsh digital fuzz. On top of this, included coloring and stereo widening allows for changing the character of the sound in a quick and easy way. Contrary to many distortion effects, Faturator will preserve the dynamics of your sound and apply its effects on it regardless of input gain.
Like all kiloHearts’ products, focus lies on ease of use while providing powerful functionality at a low price point. Faturator’s simple user interface puts all controls at the fingertips of the user, making it easy to quickly find the sound you want. “A lot of plugins these days try to compete with feature lists, often forgetting that they’re part of a creative process”, says Per Svanberg, developer and co-founder. “We want to isolate the most important parts, and make them as quickly and easily accessible as possible.”
Faturator RE is available to purchase at the Propellerhead Shop, priced at 15 EUR / $19 USD.
Ignite Amps has released TSB-1 Tyrant Screamer, a freeware plug-in version of the custom overdrive stomp-box effect plugin built in collaboration with Benevolent.
The TSB-1 “Tyrant Screamer” is a digital emulation of an overdrive pedal for guitar.
It has been developed to accurately model its real hardware counterpart, built for Benevolent guitarists Hadi Sarieddine and Mohammed Gad by Ignite Amps in 2012.
The TSB-1 core circuit is inspired by the most famous green “808” overdrive pedal, with additional features to increase its versatility and make it suitable for extremely down tuned guitars.
It can easily add dirt and bite to clean and overdriven guitar tones, as well as make the amplifier lead tone sound tighter, more focused and more responsive to picking, avoiding low-end muddiness and high-end fizz.
Every single component on the signal path of the real analog circuit has been taken into account and modeled in the best possible way to match the original sound, keeping an eye to CPU performances and real-time playability at the same time.
Dynamic 2N3904 Bipolar Junction Transistors stages analog modeling.
Dynamic 1N4148 diode circuit analog modeling.
Mono / Stereo processing support.
Selectable oversampling rate (up to 8x).
Variable Input Level control for better response to different pickups.
Double precision (64 bit) floating point internal processing.
Fully automatable controls.
TSB-1 Tyrant Screamer for Windows and Mac (VST/AU) is available to download at no cost.
