Pyjaman has released three new Pluggo VST plug-ins, sqfx, sqrp and sqrpd.
sqfx includes reverb, degrader and frequency shift effects, which can be triggered by a step sequencer. It has many randomize options (seq, fx, level & release, all).
Pyjaman sqfx v0.1
sqrp is a step sequenced arp. Controls include speed & swing, the amount of bars for the sequences and a number of randomize options. It also features MIDI in.
sqrpd is simular to sqrp, with the addition of a sample player. You can enable looping of the sample and set loop start/end points. The sample can also be fine tuned.
The plug-ins require the Pluggo run-time.
Visit Pyjaman’s website to download sqfx, sqrp and sqrpd.
Andrew Burgess has released a bunch of Pluggo plug-ins.
- gatr provides a beat-syncronised gate (whole to 1/64th notes) with volume sliders for each step, also a multimode filter and delay/reverb
- werd contains 2 independent delay lines, a multimode filter, and a re-pitcher each with independent wet/dry levels
- gleck is a granular delay/repeater with pre and post effect waveform displays (for people who like to see the effect)
- reanimator contains a granular pitch shifter, a stutter/repeater with semi random behaviour and a sonograph to see it’s inner beauty
- dirt/sky is a frickin’ mess… on one side it’s a grain-based mangler similar to gleck, but with more control. On the other side it’s a 3 way harmonizer with independent pitch controls. You can set the wet/dry value of the effect in general and the amount of dirt and/or sky to your liking
The plug-ins were originally developed for the Mac platform, but will be all ported to Windows as well, so if you don’t see a download link for a Windows version check back later.
You will need the Pluggo runtime for Mac or Windows which you can download here.
If you like these plug-ins, a donation is appreciated. Andrew is trying to get an Elektron MachineDrumUW (which costs USD$1640).
Visit Andrew’s website for more information and links to download the plug-ins.

Pyjaman has added a few new Pluggo plug-ins to his collection, strr, frnds and frndsab.
strr is an experimental beat slicer that works like an arpeggiator on the slices/notes played. After loading a sample you select the region you want to play it on and you can set the pitch swing and repetition of the slice.
frnds and frndsab play random samples (wav/aiff) in a user specified folder after it detects a signal (i.e. by microphone). frnds is limited to play a maximum of 1 minute/10 samples whereas frndsab is unlimited.
You’ll need Cycling ’74 Pluggo to use these plug-ins, so get the free runtime here in case you haven’t installed it yet.

Pierre Couprie has released Le Synthé V4 (version 4.1), a free VSTi plug-in based on the EMS Synthi AKS.
I can’t really find any information about what’s new in this latest version of Le Synthé (most of Pierre’s webpages are in French which is a language I do not know very well), but it looks like a very nice piece of software.
Le Synthé v4 is currently available for Mac OSX (French/English) and Windows XP (French only).
Note that Le Synthé needs the Pluggo runtime.
Visit Pierre Couprie‘s developer website and download the latest version of Le Synthé.
