Plugin Update: MONSTR v1.0.3


MONSTR v1.0.3 is now available to download for free as a VST, VST3, and Audio Unit for Windows, Mac, and Linux.
Much like the recent Songbird update, this is just a minor update including some performance improvements to reduce CPU load.

Plugin Update: Songbird v1.0.1


Songbird v1.0.1 is now available to download for free as a VST, VST3, and Audio Unit for Windows, Mac, and Linux.

This is just a minor update including some signficant performance improvements, you can expect a little less load on your CPU from Songbird.

Coming in 2018...


Things have been a little quiet here lately, but I've been working on a few new projects that'll hopefully be able to share more news about early next year.

Until then, I'll continue supporting and maintaining all existing products as normal.

Upcoming Updates


Over the next few weeks I'll be updating Richter, Carve, and MONSTR, to resolve a few minor issues, including a issue which can cause the graphics to display incorrectly if multiple instances of a plugin are open simultaneously.

I'm also working on a few new products which I expect will be ready in a few months time. In the meantime expect the usual updates to existing plugins for maintainance, new features, and other tweaks.

New Plugin: Songbird v1.0.0


Songbird is a modulated vowel/formant filter. Select two vowels and then modulate between them using either the manual slider or the LFO.

Songbird is ideal for creating both vocal bass sounds and subtle filter sweeps.

The free download is available for Windows, Mac, and Linux, as a VST or AudioUnit.

Plugin Update: Carve v2.3.0


Carve v2.3.0 is now available to download for free as a VST, VST3, and Audio Unit for Windows, Mac, and Linux.

This update brings significant behind the scenes changes, an 'Off' mode to mute each distortion unit independently, and slightly revised graphics.

Plugin Update: MONSTR v1.0.1


MONSTR v1.0.1 is now available as a free download for Windows, Mac OS X and Linux.

This version removes several issues with the graphics and improves the graphics performance on some hosts.

Plugin Update: Carve v2.2.0


Carve v2.2.0 is now available to download for free as a VST, VST3, and Audio Unit for Windows, Mac OS X and Linux. This update brings refinements to several of the waveshaping algorithms and filtering to reduce noise.

All plugins now have VST and Linux support


While MONSTR was released around two weeks ago with VST and Linux support, Richter and Carve have now been updated to match. This brings the total number of platforms supported by these plugins up to 8.

New Plugin: MONSTR v1.0.0


Version 1.0 of MONSTR is finally ready, and it's now available as a free download for Windows, Mac and Linux as a VST, VST3, and Audio Unit.

MONSTR is a multiband stereo imaging plugin, which allows the user to control the stereo width of a sound in 3 different frequency bands. It can be used to perform common tasks such as narrowing the bass frequencies while adding width to the highs, allowing fine control over the stereo image of your mix.

VST2, Linux VST, and MONSTR


I know it looks like there's been little activity on the site for the last month or two, but I promise I've been busy working, adding support for new platforms and working on the most complex plugin I've attempted so far.

But it's all starting to finally come together, so here's what's coming in the next few weeks:

MONSTR Multiband Stereo Imaging - by far the most complex plugin I've attempted, MONSTR allows you to control your stereo width independently across three frequency bands. Also I thought I'd try something different with the UI, so there are no faders, dials or buttons. Just drag the crossover points to change the frequency ranges. drag each band up or down to increase or decrease stereo width, and right click a band to bypass it. If you wish to follow the development of MONSTR, the source code can be found here:

VST2 Support for all Plugins - MONSTR will be released with VST2 and VST3 support, and both Richter and Carve will be updated with VST2 support and several minor improvements.

Linux VST Support for all Plugins - I'd hoped to have this done a long time ago, but it's finally here. Richter, Carve, and MONSTR will support VST2 and on Linux.

This brings the range of supported platforms to: 32 and 64 bit VST2 and VST3 on Windows, 32 and 64 bit VST2 on Linux, and 64 bit VST2, VST3, and AudioUnit2 on Mac OS X.

Plugin Update: Carve v2.01


Carve is now available for free download, and brings several new features:

Vector Graphics - Resolved the low quality rendering issue affecting the VST3 version, and improved the dials in both Audio Unit and VST3 versions
"Hard Clipper" Waveshape - Hard clipping distortion with a soft knee, based on a square wave
ToolTips - Carve is now easier to use with popup hints appearing when hovering over any of the controls
