Matthew Lindsay NCL Phase EQ

Matthew Lindsay NCL Phase EQ

Matthew Lindsay NCL Phase EQ is a freeware equalizer effect plug-in for Windows.

NCL Phase EQ is a high quality six band stereo equalizer which allows simultaneous left/right and mid/side processing. It is also more than capable functioning in a more traditional EQing role.

Phase EQ has been designed to be both powerful and flexible yet easy to use. Controls and parameters have been set up to steer users in the right direction without being restrictive in function.

To ensure a high quality signal with a low signal to noise ratio 64 bit precision is used internally on the entire audio path. Optional oversampling is available for increased audio fidelity.

NCL Phase EQ features

  • 6 EQ bands.
  • 64 bit internal precision though out entire signal path.
  • Optional oversampling.
  • Simultaneous Left/Right and Mid/Side processing.
  • Optimized CPU usage.

NCL Phase EQ was developed for the KVR Developer Challenge 2009. It is available to download as a freeware VST effect plug-in for Windows PC (1.67 MB).

Homegrown Sounds releases Phase Shifter

Homegrown Sounds Phase Shifter

Homegrown Sounds has released Phase Shifter, a free VST instrument plug-in designed to emulate Steve Reich’s tape loop phasing technique.

In the late 60′s composer Steve Reich stumbled across a technique he called phasing, which was to have two identical tape loops that run at slightly different speeds, the result is that every possible combination of sound is cycled through until they arrive back in sync. The result with a melodic piece of music is that it moves through moments of chaos and moments of melody. Brian Eno also used this technique extensively on some of his Ambient albums. After becoming interested in this in 2008, I decided to build myself a simple plugin to emulate the process as it was surprisingly difficult to emulate with any software I had at that time. I have now expanded it to emulate four tape decks and many more features such as time stretching, filters & FX so that it has become a much more capable synthesizer.

Phase Shifter is designed more for playing live, though full VST automation is supported and having an external controller makes the process a much more rewarding experience. It also has a built in recorder so that the output can be recorded directly to disk. It works by loading up to 2 WAVs, and is triggered via a midi keyboard. Middle C will play the WAV at it’s original speed. It has a lot of potential for producing interesting sounds, I would be pleased to hear of the different ways people use it.

Phase Shifter was developed for the KVR Developers Challenge 2009. It is available to download as a freeware VST instrument for Windows PC.

Inspired by the smooth dynamic shaping capabilities of some high-end reel-to-reel tape recorders, this plug-in simulates three of the most distinctive and much appreciated sonic effects generated by these devices:

  • DYNAMICS – gently shaping the overall dynamic response
  • SATURATION – adding extra harmonic-related content
  • LIMITING – controlling peak performance

FerricTDS features

  • Performs gentle audio dynamic treatments.
  • Masters difficult to handle audio material.
  • Adds extra harmonics and saturation effects.
  • Controls outgoing audio peaks.
  • State-of-the-art digital signal processing.
  • 4x oversampled core algorithms.
  • Performance-critical parts are written in assembler.
  • Completely SSE-optimized.

FerricTDS is available as a freeware VST effect plug-in for Windows PC. It is part of the KVR Developer Challenge 2009.
