The KVR Developer Challenge 2007 has its winner: xoxos (Rurik Leffanta).

xoxos took first place with Sounds of Nature, a collection of VSTi for emulating common natural sounds – wind, rain, thunder, songbirds and insects.

Well done Mr. Rurik! I did not vote myself (lack of time to check all the entries), but even if I wouldn’t have put xoxos’ entry first place, it is a well deserved win. xoxos has released tons of cool freeware plug-ins over the last few years, more than doing his part in the community.

Second place goes to Mucoder’s Hypercyclic, an LFO-driven MIDI arpeggiator. I guess I will have to take a better look at this… First time I tried it I couldn’t get it to work really, but it seems useful enough.

UGO‘s synth The Element of Surprise gets third place. This one was on my original list of plug-ins I was interested in. It looks a bit simple but it can do some really nice sounds. If you like randomize stuff like I do, be sure to check this one out.

I’m glad to see de la Mancha & Sink’s multi-effect VST plug-in truc up there as well (4th place). Out of all the DC plug-ins of this year, I think truc will get the most use. It’s great for crazy FSU type effects.
