Good orchestra sound sets are very hard to find, especially non-expensive or free collections. This week’s free plugin is an orchestra sound library created by Mattias Westlund, and is comparable in quality to good commercial libraries. It really is a one in a million find!
If you want orchestral sound sets to use in your music, don’t waste your cash on expensive sound libraries – check out this great free alternative.
Put simply, Glitch is a VST plugin that you just won’t be able to put down.
What does it do? Glitch takes incoming audio, chops it up into different slices, and combines this with a range of different effects to create some truly unique sounds. That’s a basic description – but you’ve really got to hear it to believe it.
With Christmas oh so close, this weeks free plugin(s) share a bit of a holiday theme!
Firstly, Ableton has joined in the Christmas spirit by giving away two free Live Packs. A pack by Everett Bradley mashes up Tschaikovsky’s Nutcracker, while a pack from Christopher Tignor gives a hip hop flavor to a set of string loops. Get them here: Ableton – Free Live Packs – Christmas 2010
Secondly, what would Christmas be without bells and chimes? This cute (and free) VST plugin by Tweakbench offers a physically modelled bell/chime synthesizer along with a built in chorus and reverb effect.
Enjoy the plugins and have a merry Christmas!
