Plugin Boutique has launched a Flash Friday Sale on Strum Acoustic GS-1, offering the virtual guitar instrument from Applied Acoustics Systems at a 50% discount for a limited time.
Strum Acoustic GS-1 is a synthesizer dedicated to the emulation of acoustic guitars. The synthesizer is entirely based on the A|A|S physical modeling technology and uses no sampling nor wave tables. Instead it produces sound by solving, on the fly, mathematical equations modeling the different components of a guitar and how they interact. This elaborate synthesis engine responds dynamically to the control signals it receives while you play thereby reproducing the richness and responsiveness of real instruments.
Strum Acoustic GS-1 features
- Audio bit-depth and sample rates up to 24-bit/192kHz.
- MIDI and host automation support.
- MIDI Program Change support.
- Host tempo synchronization.
- Standalone operation—no host application required.
Strum Acoustic GS-1 is available from Plugin Boutique at a 50% discount until June 9th, 2014.

Boz Digital Labs has launched Tilty Wilty, a tilt EQ effect plugin, which is a great tool for quickly adjusting the brightness/darkness of your tracks.
Tilty Wilty uses a special filter that does not have any of the wonky side effects to your high end that most digital filters have. No matter what sample rate you are using, Tilty Wilty will give you a smooth natural curve right up to Nyquist frequency.
You may be wondering why this plugin has such a dumb name and ugly interface. This is by design. We are working on a bigger better version, but we wanted to get this into your hands now.
The plug-in is available for Windows and Mac (VST/AU/RTAS/AAX). Until June 9th, 2014, it is free.

Plugin Boutique has launched a Friday Flash Sale on the Quad Frohmage filter effect plug-in from Ohm Force.
Wouldn’t it be cool to have one decent filter and be able to use it in ALL situations? Smell the Quad Frohmage and you’ll find the answer. It’s said that when a master sculptor stands in front of a new block of marble, he doesn’t see a lump of stone. Instead he takes his chisel and releases the shape that is trapped within.
With four channels and eight types of filter at your disposal, you won’t need to be a Michelangelo to start drawing fantastic textures out of even the most mundane of sources. Rearrange channels into any combination, should you wish to knock the rough edges off one with a filter on another, or use the link switch to bind the cutoff knobs into an adjustable ratio, for unified effects across the frequency range. And, of course, for polishing up your new creations, each channel is equipped with distortion, pan, delay and volume controls.
The plugin is available at a 50% discount until May 27th, 2014.
