WOK releases Echo Freeze Unit EFU-1 delay plugin

WOK has released Echo Freeze Unit EFU-1, a delay effect plug-in for Windows.

WOK EFU-1
WOK Echo Freeze Unit EFU-1

EFU-1 is more than another delay plugin. Besides all the basic functions (host sync or milliseconds, digital/tape/analog sound, modulation) it features a distinctive freeze function; like some famous hardware delay units, the delay buffer can act like a sampler. Up to 4/1 bars of input signal can be recorded (or lets better say: frozen) and continously played back at a selectable speed – even reverse.

But EFU-1 is more flexible than hardware devices: while a frozen audio segment is played back, the delay unit remains useable – even at a different delay time / sync divider! Also to hold and freeze a signal it is possible to first choose “record” and then send audio to the plugin, or you continously play thru the delay and if the “last loop” was interesting, you hit “Record” to freeze it! And while the recorded phrase is played back – even reverse, you may continue to play along with it thru the delay at a different time setting. By the way: feedback can be cranked up until nearly endless, and in millisecond mode, the delay time can be changed smoothly from many seconds to very short – producing these famous dub sounds!

The ease of use, low CPU usage and musical functionality are making EFU-1 the perfect tool for live mangling your audio. Try the demo version and buy the full version via secure Paypal service with direct download afterwards!

EFU-1 for Windows (VST) is available to purchase for 29 EUR.

WOK D-Arp

D-Arp is a double power arpeggiator to trigger your plugins or external synths.

Two arps can run parallel or serial (the first triggers the second). Extras like a force2scale function and the ability to run by manual stepping triggered by incoming MIDI notes on a different channel make this plugin
stand out from other arpeggiators.

Special features: host-sync, shuffle, adjustable note length with overlap at max point (for mono glide sounds), velocity adjustable or input pass thru. Clock divider for speed control includes settings for dotted or triol – also there is a manual control for step thru by sending MIDI notes on channel 16 to the plugin (for example from a drum machine !).

D-Arp is available as a VST plug-in for Windows, priced at 11 EUR.

WOK Flexfilterbank2

WOK has released version 2.1 of FlexFilterbank2, a filter effect plug-in for Windows.

There are 8 filter bands, each with a volume and frequency knob. The overall bandwidth of the filters can be adjusted too. Feed it with noise, strings, drums or voice to get vocoder-like effects, enhance or damp frequencies or get special effects. The emulation of electronic circuits also allows for overdrive the input or output section. 2x oversampling reduces digital artifacts.

Changes in FlexFilterbank2 v2.1

  • The output of the 8 filters can be controlled by incoming MIDI notes to “play” the filters with a keyboard.
  • The middle octave’s notes C – C’ trigger the envelopes for the output volume of the 8 filters (with fixed or variable velocity).

Flexfilterbank2 is available to download as a free VST effect plug-in for Windows. The free version only includes 1 preset and has a nagscreen. A version with more presets and no nagscreen is available upon donation.
