Hello. Satisfied customer here (5-6 thermionik models, recabinet, vintage-driver, ram-fuzz, kclip2, kclip3 preorder...).
Loving and truly admiring the fair pricing policy, the focus on sound quality over graphics, as well as the modular approach of VSTs.

I started using PodFarm many years ago for guitar stuff, and over time I pretty much found better alternatives to all its tools (mainly from Kazrog) with the exceptions of Wah pedals emulations... I'm kind of surprised I'm still using the PodFarm Wahs in 2018 for lack of alternatives as standalone VSTs.

I used to have an actual hadware Wah pedal, which I ended up selling few years ago when I somehow decided to go for full ITB processing.

The only proper standalone Wah VST I've found is the one from Hornet, it sounds nice... but I wonder how a Wah pedal emulation from Kazrog, specialized in guitar related emulations, would sound like.

Any hopes for the future about something like this? Thanks.

You can pretty much use any regular filter plugin as a substitute for a wah pedal...

Thank you for answering.
Well, I'm usually all for "DIY solutions"... in this case I feel a little different about the whole thing.
Mapping the cutoff of a resonant lowpass to a midi expression pedal is probably the main thing, but then there's more in order to achieve a realistic sound with a pedal.
Proper upper/lower limits of the cutoff/midi-values have to be set, and I'm not sure how to do it yet, keeping the whole range of the expression pedal intact.
Last thing, I don't know if a more realistic and better result could be achieved with variable gain and q values of the filter along with the cutoff increments.

I suppose I could try and come up with the whole vst chain fine tuned to do the trick and probably still be in doubt of how much better and more practical a plugin designed by a good dev specifically for this would be. I simply find the lack of offer for standalone Wah VSTs a little odd, that's all.

I could try to work it out, but it actually was more a suggestion/request, which the developer has all the rights to ignore of course :oops:

I'd love to do one, actually... there are some ways it could be improved over existing solutions.

Searching through KvR database, there are these two, one of them even free:

Tested them both quite a bit (I think I went through all standalone 64bits vst wahs available) and for some reasons I keep getting back to the old PodFarm wahs. I still feel as they behave/respond in the best way when mapped to a midi expression pedal.

You could create your dream wah quite easily with The Drop, just a suggestion

If it still works on your system I found the Coyote Wah quite nice. One version is free, the Wah GT not. (unfortunately it mostly crashes my Reaper, as it's still a Win2000 version, but if it works it sounds nice.)

Fretted Synth also has some adjustable free Wah's, the VST's are discontinued, but can still be downloaded here:

Then there still are this also older ones (Green PreXpression and Green Wah)

So a newer Wah-VST really would be a nice idea. I personally would prefer a Jen-Wah or Maestro Boomerang voicing, or a version based on the Big Bad Wah or Bad Horsie. If possible, no Dunlop based one.
