Matthew Lindsay has released NCL Basic Soft Clipper, a freeware effect plug-in for Windows.

Matt writes:

I’ve been playing around with building a VST3 plugin and thought I’d share something that I came up with. It’s a very simple soft clipper that is controlled with a single drive control. It’s a beta version so please let me know what issue you can find with it – if this works smoothly I’ll work on bigger and better things and possibly port my existing plugins to native VST2 and VST3 also. So your feedback will be most appreciated.

Basic Soft Clipper features

  • -18dB to 18dB drive.
  • HQ button for optional “high quality” 8x oversampling.
  • BW (Brick Wall) button to ensure the signal doesn’t exceed 0dB.

Basic Soft Clipper is available to download as a freeware VST/VST3 effect plug-in for Windows PC (32-bit).
