As said in previous posting, I’m looking around what’s available free on the VST market. VST plugins are virtual software synthesizers or effects to be used in real-time with your favorite VST capable sequencer / DAW.
Sometimes it’s a pity to see an amazing plugin that offers great technical capabilities, but the user interface is just … well, no very useable. Too crowded, colours that hurt your eyes, too small, not intuitive. On the other hand, there are loads of synths or effects with a very nice almost “I-can-grab-it-right-from-the-screen” interface, but that lack decent processing or are heavy like hell for your computer.
So far, I’m really impressed in both the clean interface and technical / sound capabilities of the acid.milch&honig acidrack VST synth. It’s a 2 oscillator virtual analog synthesizer, with some nice filter/LFO capabilities. Sure, there are a million in a dozen of these VA synths around. But this one is so intuitive and totally free, you’d be nuts not to give it a try.
A lot of the synthedit synths (a program to visually make your own VST plugins, without needing knowledge of for example C++ code) are automatically ditched by a lot of VST users, because of a lack in decent sound/useability. But this little plugin shows it can be done right. I think I’m gonna have a lot of fun with this lil toy. I’ll try to post some sounds later.
