From a less conspicuous developer, in this article is featured a less conspicuous plugin, but certainly not less interesting than most others floating around wrapped in some kind of deal or promotion. Namely “Amurg Lite” from Audiolatry is a virtual instrument that can be had for FREE until forever!
As claimed by the developer, Amurg Lite is a virtual instrument with sounds “captured from hardware synthesizers only, edited, and looped to perfection”. It is designed to use in Ambient settings, as well as Hip Hop and LoFi styles, but can also snugly fit EDM or Cinematic styles as well. All sounds can be manipulated by a set of general controls like envelope, gain and a filter, but the interface also offers things like reverb and modulation options. It is certainly lightweight but perhaps that is just what you need or like.
Despite its feather-weight, it contains the following features:
- 33 presets
- keys, leads, pads, basses, fx
- ADSR section
- filter section with cutoff
- modulation section
- voice mode & glide
- lowpass/highpass filter cutoff
- tune knob
- reverb module
- VST/VST3 64-bit Windows & VST/VST3 & AU macOS
To download this for free, the developer asks to enter coupon code “FREE” (without quotes), because of limitations set by their server-platform. To install it, just copy/paste the extracted folder(s) to the appropriate Windows or macOS folder(s) as mentioned on the download page.
Unless your PC is from before the era of PCs, the requirements should not form an issue. And without an issue there’s no reason not to… so please do!
Amurg Lite is a FREE LoFi and Ambient virtual instrument from Audiolatry!
