I like plugins that are neatly arranged and easy to use for simple tasks, instead offering 20 panels with 300 knobs
So I will do some of these one-trick-ponies, as my free time allows.

Also featuring host sync, a filter in the feedback path and distortion.

WOK has announced the release of Notenspeicher, a MIDI VST plugin for Windows.
Record a sequence step by step and play it back in various modes with Notenspeicher.
NOTENSPEICHER is a MIDI recorder / step sequencer with maximum ease of use: just record MIDI notes step by step and play them back in various ways.
The plugin holds up to 64 notes and plays them back transposed with selectable speed in sync to the host; nonstop, while a key is pressed or step by step.
Each sequence is saved as a VST preset, so 128 sequences can be accessed by program change.
Easy to use, with a nice vintage looking GUI.
The VST plugin for Windows is available to purchase for 3 EUR.

WOK has announced the release of Estrima, a virtual string machine instrument for Windows.
Liking this lush pad sound of the 60s/70s ? ESTRIMA is the little sister of our Cromina string machine. It creates this famous, swirling sound with a minimum of hassle. Also there is a choir voicing on board to treat you ears with this old “Aaahh”-sound ;-)
Unlike our big Cromina, it does not have the full polyphonic octave divider simulation, but a simplified phase lock for the 20 voices to reduce CPU load. There is a paraphonic envelope simulation too.
Also on board is a 3x chorus and a deep phaser. The waveform-shape of strings and choir can be varied to achieve the sound of different vintage machines. Auto pitch-bend (for the choir) and vibrato complete this straightforward little toy.
Estrima for Windows (VST) is available to purchase for the “Spring-2013-Maya-fail” introductory price of 9.87 EUR.
