LVC-Audio Clip Shifter free effect plugin

LVC-Audio Clip Shifter

LVC-Audio’s entry to the KVR Developer Challenge 2012 is Clip Shifter, a plugin designed to provide saturation and clipping effects to your audio.

This can be useful for individual tracks such as kick, snare, room mics, bass, etc.; on mix busses such as drums; and on overall mixes. The sonic characteristics of the clipping distortion can be altered from hard, brickwall-style clipping, to softer saturation with compression.

The threshold controls for Clip Shifter’s clipping dynamically responds to the transient characteristic of the incoming audio. Distortion/Saturation can be selectively applied to part of the audio signal.

Clip Shifter is available as a Windows 32-bit or 64-bit VST plugin.

Synthescience intros Poly 2106 free virtual analog synth plugin

Synthescience has introduced the Poly 2106 virtual analog synthesizer instrument for Windows.

Synthescience Poly 2106

The Poly 2106 initially started off as a recreation of a true object of desire from the fashionable 80′s that was once part of our studio, but that was just the initial kick that propelled a seemingly more enthusiastic project which culminated into a knob infested creation with a solid vintage backbone. So for a long time we didn’t spare ourselves in the effort of breathing life into a machine which is a breed of everything we would like to see in a true performance synthesizer, something close to the vision of our personal nirvana that now we are ready to share to everyone, our only hope is that you too find it as much as rewarding as we did…

The Poly 2106 is part of the KVR Developer Challenge 2012, and available to download for Windows (VST) at no cost.
