Postby Dingo865; Sun Oct 13, 2002 10:22 am Freeware VSTeffects roundup 32-bit

Since this really useful thread started about VSTinstruments, I thought it'd be hightime to start the same list for effects. However, since commercial effects are almost all completely out of my pricerange, therefore I've never had them and thus cannot credibly compare them, I figured we could classify them by *types*, instead of by their commercially available counterparts.

So, here comes *one* proposed scheme. If you find it worthy, please feel free to rework it or contribute to it as you see fit.

IMPORTANT NOTES:

a) Unfortunately, I don't know the authors of all the effects, since some of them have disappeared, others don't have any identifier built into the plug, and a good portion didn't come with text or help files or any copyright notice. If you know the author, please be kind and add that info after the plugin in brackets (and maybe a hyperlink too?)

b) Some of these plugins are shareware, donationware, or crippleware; and some have been probably removed from the public domain, or discontinued alltogether. I tend to get rid of those that are (I either pay for them, or uninstall them in due course), but some - like the Blueline - are such that they have stayed around on my system. If I mentioned anything on this list that unwittingly infringes upon someone's copyright (although I sincerely doubt it, since I don't have any musicracks), please be kind and let me know, and I will remove it ASAP. I'm NOT encouraging any copyright infringement, implied or factual.

c) This method of classification is at least 50% subjective. Most (all?)flanger/phaser is also a chorus and vice versa; most filterbanks also fit into distortion; and pretty much anything Tobybear does defies classification. :shock: :D To my ears, and based on my experience, hopwever, this is the kind of slotting that made sense. If you're more knowledgeable, please feel free to re-structure it according to the proper lines.

Hi VitaminD,

It's there now - but y'know, with the same effort you put into this message you could also have added it to the list, with a hyperlink to boost... :wink: I don't have the link handy, BTW, and you didn't include it in the textfile...

I've never heard of Tardis and I'm really interested in stereo enhancer plugins or similar. Anyone got any info or a link?

Can I suggest adding CamelPhatFree (our freeware Compressor/Distortion effect). Its dead simple to use but it has a nice sound - someone here at KVR (can't remember who) said it was 'the perfect fuzz box'. It could go under either your Compression or Distortion categories. Maybe its best under distrortion.

Thanks

I'll root through my effects when I get home and let you know if I find anything else useful to mention.

There's definitely at least one mda Delay (DubDelay), and TobyBear's Shocker was free for a while., dont know if that counts.

Okay:

dfx Buffer Override - delay? mangling?
dfx Geomoter - mangling
dfx Rez Synth - filter?
dfx Scrubby - pitch effects?
dfx Transverb -delay?

VCS Reducer - distortion
Smartelectronix Bouncy Delay -delay
Loxenga Elettronix - delay
Invada Filter - EQ
JS Equaliser EQ
JS Band-cut EQ
JS 6-band Equaliser - EQ
JS Resonnateur - Filter
ZFilter Dub - filter
VFlanger - flanger
VCS UltraPhazer - phaser
LoFi Plus - distortion?
TapeStop - ummm?
Voxengo Radiio - also ummm.
VNoisegate - gate
Z-spshift - pitch manip
Z-Spvoc - picth manip
Z-Florus - chorus/flanger
Killeringer - ringmod


Also maybe some Vellocette stuff, andothers by JS I may have missed, and a cuple more Invada plugs. I also think there's some others by the Z-Florus guy, there's Pali and Sukreep, think one's a delay the other's a filter (I think)

Cant see much more. Ive probably missed a couple though.

Oh yeah, and Izotope Vinyl.

And mda Degrade and RefX Trasher as distortions. (Both decimators, really)
