A new freeware plug-in is available !
The Great Escape
The Great Escape is a dynamic tremolo plug-in, made in collaboration with Thrilltone and modeling their original hardware all analog pedal. Instead of being just a standard but still very good sounding tremolo, the two of them feature an envelope detector which changes the speed and the depth of the effect with your playing. Indeed, tremolo is a great effect, but we must admit that in most cases, it has this mechanical and repetitive behavior, which leads us to use it in a very occasional manner, with pretty smooth intensity... Now, thanks to the envelope detector, tremolo can be a very expressive audio effect !
KVR Developer Challenge 2012 - Inspiration
Inspiration is an application developed to stimulate the creativity of music composers. Influenced by Brian Eno’s Oblique Strategies, and techniques described in several books about songwriting such as the Frustrated Songwriter's Handbook from Nicholas Dobson, Inspiration allows its users to get random, more or less abstract advice that can provide ways to handle the blank page syndrome, new "cooking recipes" to create music in general, ideas to develop or finish a song, write a lot of music in a short time, take new, different, stimulating musical paths.
This application has been developed for a contest called the KVR Developer Challenge 2012.
KVR Developer Challenge 2014 - Guitar Gadgets
Guitar Gadgets is a compilation of "false" analog guitar pedal simulations, made to be used mainly with electric guitars and guitar amp simulations, but which may be sound interesting in any situation. The focus wasn't to design classic effects, but weird, strange, ugly or "different" ones instead. It is available on VST and AU formats (32/64-bits, Windows and Mac OS X).
This plug-in has been developed for a contest called the KVR Developer Challenge 2014.
KVR Developer Challenge 2016 - Spaceship Delay
Spaceship Delay is a delay audio effect featuring classic modern and vintage sounding delays, with post effects, analog modeling synth filters, a spring reverb, a tutorial embedded in the application, nice modulation controls, a freeze/looper mode, a lot of presets... It is available on VST, AU and AAX formats (32/64-bits, Windows and Mac OS X) and finished at rank #3 at the challenge !
