eaReckon releases "MIDI Polysher" and "Ferret 4x4" v1.1.0 for Windows and Mac OS X (Free)
31st January 2014
The two freeware plug-ins have been rebuilt from scratch and they are now available as 32/64-bit plug-ins for both Windows and Mac OS X.
MIDI Polysher is a free VST plugin formerly designed as a MIDI filter for the early versions of BloXpander, EaReckon's live-oriented host, which now features an integrated and full-featured MIDI filter, so BloXpander users do not really need MIDI Polysher anymore.
However, over the past few years, musicians have shown interest for this plug-in which can be used in other VST compatible DAWs. MIDI Polysher is a VST MIDI filter that offers the possibility to virtually split your master keyboard into multiple key and velocity zones. It also provides a transpose option, a MIDI channel filter and three global filters (CC, Pitch Bend and Aftertouch).
Ferret 4x4 has been designed to add more audio routing capabilities to BloXpander by taking advantage of its sidechaining and multi-output capabilities. However, it can be used in some other DAWs to create audio links between different channels/tracks.
Ferret 4x4 features four pairs of inputs and four pairs of outputs, each of them having its own adjustable level and pan parameters. The internal behavior of Ferret 4x4 is quite basic: inputs are mixed down and the resulting stereo signal is sent to outputs depending on user settings. This plug-in can be used to create extra "aux return" channels, mix down multiple signals to be sent to a single effect or a physical output, create headphone mixes, etc.
MIDI Polysher is provided as a 32/64-bit VST plug-in for Windows and Mac OS X.
Ferret 4x4 is provided as a 32/64-bit VST plug-in for Windows and a 32/64-bit VST and AU plug-in for Mac OS X.
Please note that how easy (or even possible) it is to use Ferret4x4 and MIDI Polysher highly depends on the host's routing capabilities.
