rs-met has released a public beta of Straightliner, a subtractive synthesizer plug-in for Windows PC.
- 4 Oscillators, support loading of arbitrary (single cycle) audio files (stereo supported).
- 2 Envelope generators with flexible modulation (allows for arbitrary number of breakpoints).
- Multi-mode Filter: lowpass, highpass, bandpass, bell- and shelving types and some ‘morphable’ types (note: at this early beta-stage, only the ‘Moogish Lowpass’ type is implemented).
- Stereo signal path.
A manual of Straightliner is available for download (pdf).

rs-met has released version 0.6 of Crossover 3-Way and Track Meter, two freeware VST effect plug-ins for Windows PC.
Changes in v0.6
- Crossover 3-Way: odd multiples of 12 dB/oct did not sum up to unit magnitude, fixed.
- Track Meter: time constant adjustment (on clicking the respective buttons) for VU and PPM mode was wrong, fixed.
- Track Meter: Parameter ranges for rise and fall time have changed and scale exponentially now.
- Track Meter: GUI graphics have been optimized for more efficiency.

rs-met has released Channel Matrix 2×2 and Crossover 3-Way, two freeware VST effect plug-ins for Windows PC.
Channel Matrix 2×2 is a plugin which lets you matrix-multiply the signals of two input channels in order to obtain another two signals which will appear at the two output channels. Example uses are mid/side encoding/decoding, mixing stereo to mono, switching channels left for right, boosting or attenuating signals, inverting signal polarity, etc.
Crossover 3-Way is a plugin to split an incoming (stereo or mono) signal into 2 or 3 frequency ranges (lows and highs or lows, mids and highs). It can be used to build your own multiband effects within a modular (sub)host environment. The band-splitting is done by complementary pairs of Linkwitz-Riley lowpass/highpass filters, the slope of which is adjustable between 12 and 96 dB/oct.

rs-met (Robin Schmidt’s Music Engineering Tools) has released three freeware VST plug-ins: Func Shaper, Track Meter and Signal Analyzer.
- Func Shaper is a waveshaping distortion plugin based on a mathematical expression evaluator. You can enter an expression to create the function which will be used as waveshaping transfer function.
- Track Meter is a plugin to display the current level of a stereo input signal separately for the left, right, mid and side channels and also to display the cross-correlation between the two channels.
- Signal Analyzer is a combined oscilloscope / spectrum-analyzer plugin for inspecting signals in realtime in the time- and frequency domain.
If the GUI’s on these plug-ins look familiar, you won’t be surprised to hear that Robin Schmidt is the guy behind the Braindoc plug-ins.
