Tweakbench updates all its plug-ins


Tweakbench has released updated versions of all its VST plug-ins.

From the website:

Patience is a virtue, so here’s a little reward. all the plugins have a point release, updating many little things, and keeping things up to date. all of the cycler series, and everything using any granular processes should perform a bit better now, and i’m just a few days away from the newest addition to the family ;)

Changes in these updates

  • All of the cycler series (breakdown, dropout, mashup, sideslip) should all get some bug fixes in regards to timing, and some CC issues.
  • Anything with granular processes (pudding, minerva) should see some increased performance as well.
  • Everything else has just been updated to use the latest external modules, and latest SynthEdit bug fixes to increase compatibility.

Tweakbench plug-ins for Windows PC are free (donations appreciated) and you can download a bundle of all the plug-ins for a donation of $5 USD.

Tweakbench plug-ins updated


Tweakbench has updated all 22 of it’s plug-ins.

Also, Ritual 1.0 (the Bass synth plug-in that featured in the KVR DC) was added to the Tweakbench website, which also got a brand new design.

So what is new?

  • All known bugs addressed
  • All knobs changed to linear motion
  • All controls respond to Ctrl-dragging for precision
  • Tooltips added to almost every control, a huge help for beginners!
  • Breakdown, Mashup, Sideslip and Dropout all got a new GUI with fully drawable curves
  • Tapeworm updated to include vintage tape grain
  • Carillon and Papaya got randomizers
  • Field got an improved playback trigger (autoplays in all hosts now)
  • NEW PLUGIN: Ritual 1.0 – Bass synthesizer
  • retired plugin: Pressure
  • Yoink updated with improved loop points and generally snazzier sampling

Tweakbench now offers a “bundled download” feature which gets you ALL the plugins at once for a $5 donation. That’s a nice way to support Tweakbench for the most wonderful plug-ins they provide freely.

KVR DC: Tweakbench Ritual

Tweakbench Ritual VSTi

Tweakbench‘s contribution to the KVR Developer Challenge is Ritual, a Bass Synthesizer VSTi.

Though Ritual is the first new VST from Tweakbench in over a year, you will probably recognize the GUI if you’ve ever used any of the other Tweakbench plug-ins.


  • Two morphable oscs
  • Custom designed cascade filter system with a feedback chain
  • LFO and Envelope modulators
  • Mod matrix

The two morphable oscillators are a key feature here. A shape knob can be set to morph the waveforms. Oscillator 1 morphs from a pulse to a crushed triangle and oscillator 2 can morph from a supersaw to a crushed sine. The supersaw waveform used in Ritual is a completely original design as well.

Top quality as expected from Tweakbench!

Ritual is not on Tweakbench‘s website yet so get it at the KVR Developer Challenge page.
