Native Instruments has launched Replika, a free delay effect plug-in for Windows and Mac.
REPLIKA packs two professional quality delays and a powerful diffusion algorithm into a sleek, streamlined interface. Simple to use with a resonant filter and classic phaser built in, REPLIKA is a versatile delay for anything from subtle slapback to warped sheets of noise.
REPLIKA provides three distinct algorithms. Modern is a digital delay that delivers the crystal-clear repeats of high-end units. Vintage Digital delivers the charismatic grit of early studio delays. Diffusion delivers a fresh sound that rides the line between delay and reverb.
A high-class resonant filter and classic phaser add subtle to drastic motion that can be sync’d to the beat for intense sound design. You can even adjust your signal’s placement in the mix with normal, wide, and ping pong stereo modes.
REPLIKA’s powerful sound shaping features are laid out on a slick, essentials-only interface. Choose your delay mode and fine-tune lows and highs. One-knob subdivision adjustment steps you through the most widely-used delay times. And adding modulation is just as easy with simple combinations of three intuitive knobs and two buttons to choose between phaser and filter – lowpass, highpass or notch.
Replika for Windows and Mac (VST/AU/RTAS/AAX) is available to download at no charge.

Goodhertz has announced the release of Faraday Limiter, a free peak limiter with a big transformer sound.
Designed for more than just loudness, Faraday Limiter is not a digital brickwall limiter: its colorful input/output transformers are capable of beefy, harmonically-rich saturations, and the detector circuit stays smooth and punchy no matter how extreme the gain reduction.
Faraday Limiter features
- Big, analog-modeled transformer sound.
- “Color” and “Warmth” controls for extended timbral shaping.
- Advanced stereo linking: variable L/R or M/S linking.
- Adjustable ratio: [2:1, 4:1, 8:1, 20:1].
- Gain reduction history meter.
The plug-in is free to download for Mac (AU).
