The generousness from Plugin Boutique is multiplying at a rapid pace. Because this month they decided to offer not one but six free plugins to choose from, as per usual only valid until the end of this month! Starting out with ‘only’ four, since a few days they’ve added two more to choose from! With any purchase, claim your FREE copy of Punish Lite by Heaviocity, Levels by Mastering the Mix, Autoformer by United Plugins, a Sound Bank of choice by AAS, the Orb by Audiothing or PolyComp by Audiority!
Just click the button that says ‘Claim Your Gift’ and pick the one you want to complete checkout. With each new purchase, you can choose another one of these six gifts, but of course each can only be chosen once.
Punish Lite by Heaviocity needs little introduction here because it was last month’s free gift and we already did a recent article to show off its looks and talents. Here is the article for those wanting to remind their selves of what Punish Lite can do for you.
Levels by Mastering the Mix has also been a free gift once before, and a quick peak around the bend reveals a previous article here, speaking of an advanced metering system to correct a variety of mixing issues, built for simplicity, performance and time efficiency. For anyone encountering difficulties at fixing or even identifying issues in their mix, this plugin can be a real lifesaver.
Autoformer by United Plugins is a multi-effect combining an “analogue like” preamp with gentle compression, ideal to balance drum recordings or creating vocal or voice-over tracks. The preamp offers British, American and German style analog circuits, while the fast compressor soothes your track-dynamics without altering the spectral character. To repair volume dropouts and other performance mistakes, a balancer section makes them disappear with a Seer parameter that detects if your audio needs volume adjustment. Individual Bypass switches you may use any part as a single effect or combine them as you please. Hassle-free software protection and a realistic and flexible 3D GUI round off a plugin-pie deliciously irresistible.
You can also choose a Sound Bank from Applied Acoustics Systems. There are more than 40 sound banks to choose from, to use with their free AAS Player, automatically provided with any bank. As per design, those who own any synthesizer plugin from AAS can also use these sounds with them.
Perhaps a special kind of Filter plugin is what you are currently looking for. The Orb by AudioThing is a Formant Filter featuring three band-pass filters that can transform any sound into a vowel-like formant. Three LFOs allow you to modulate it while additional controls can up its quirkiness even more. Via each ‘sector’ of the ‘Orb’ each resonating ‘Vowel’ can be separately manipulated. A custom vowel list is available via the ‘Edit’ button to play with the frequency of each Vowel in the three formants.
Finally, PolyComp by Audiority is a simulated classic multiband compressor designed to be at home in the mastering chain. Providing three bands of VCA compression, it can be used as a corrective mastering tool but also on single tracks or as a mixbus compressor. With three bands and two cross-over filters and independent Threshold, Ratio, Attack and Release per band, PolyComp might be at home in your DAW.
So, instead of one way towards a free plugin, you now have no less than six! Creeping up to Black Friday, these ‘FWAPs‘ are nice stepping-stones to cross that bridge until we get there. Make sure you do! Six times over if need be!
[FWAP = Free With Any Purchase; red.]
Plugin Boutique’s monthly FREE gift is fourfold until November 30th!
