Noisebud has announced Burt, a free synthesizer instrument plug-in for Windows.
Burt is our first attempt to make a VSTi. We needed a bass synth that delivered more grit and dirt and didn’t need hours of twiddling before getting there.
We based the sound engine on waveshaping through distortion, bit crush and resonance since our VST fx chains on bass channels almost always contain that sort of plugins. The result is a angry old fart that we named Burt. He can get so angry that his audio buffers overflows and get silent, you have to restart your DAW to cool him down but don’t worry, Burt will start screaming again.
Burt will be available as a freeware VST instrument for Windows on November 1st 2011. It is already available as a freebie included with Noisebud’s latest album as well.
