Freeware roundup!

Hi Folks –

Another roundup of recent freeware releases and discoveries, four new ones today  :


bx-cleansweep (AU/VST/RTAS) is a new Hi-Pass filter and Lo-Pass filter plug-in from Brainworx, introducing the new “Anti Crush Technology”.  Analog style filter curves without the typical Nyquist problems, in a new great sounding filter design. Ffirst order filters (6dB) guarantee an extremely musically sounding filter set, and unique joystick control gives you fast and intuitive control. Clever shortcuts (alt/shift/ctrl) allow for detailed control over the X-axis and Y-axis of the joystick, and the EQ knobs can be set to precision mode by shift-click as well.

Freeware : TAL-Reverb


Hi everyone,

I’ve maintained the freeware FX and instruments lists in the forums for a few years – I started them as a reference list for my students. but it seems they’ve been useful to 90,000 other people as well : )

Glenn has now asked me to post new additions here as well. I’m a blogger boy by nature, so hoping I get my head around WordPress!

Generally I’ll just be re-posting PR, but might add comments occasionally. Here we go :

TAL-Reverb (AU, VST) is a free open source stereo plate reverb based on juce. It’s very diffuse and has its own sound because of its special signal routing. Slight modulated delay times avoid artefacts in the reverb tail and give this reverb its smooth sound.

* 12 dB High- and Low-Pass filter.
* Pre delay, up to one second.
* Midi Learn (vst only)
* 10 presets.
* open source.
