FrettedSynth releases SlowBeer VST

FrettedSynth SlowBeer audio gate plug-in

FrettedSynth has released SlowBeer, an audio gate with very fast tracking (starts at about -60db and seems to be quite smooth on the gate close).

SlowBeer features

  • Gate control
  • ADSR controls
  • Very low CPU usage, Zero latency with a fade in of about 1.5ms
  • 4 versions are included in the download:
    • Mono gate
    • Stereo gate
    • Mono gate side chained
    • Stereo gate side chained

Tips from the developer:

  1. Gate sets the input-threshold, at MIN it needs about 0db to trigger the gate, at MAX it needs about -62db to trigger the gate.
  2. Release sets the time to re-trigger and the gate close time from about 2ms to about 200ms.

SlowBeer is available as a freeware VST effect plugin for Windows.

Oh, and while you’re over there check out the Drive5 amp simulation as well. It was FrettedSynths entry in the KVR DC 2006.

Drive-5 is an amp sim without speaker emulation and is meant to use convolution for the speaker emulation.

Fretted Synth doesn’t have its own site anymore. You can download the plugins directly from rekkerd at http://rekkerd.org/fretted-synth/
