It sets out to provide simple whistle sounds, and in particular cinematic whistle sounds more interesting than, say, the general MIDI whistle-like instruments.
Not surprisingly, as with analog instruments, the Shepherd plays far better with simple arrangements than with polyphonic polyglots. If you're hunting for freeware to give you that unique solo,then just whistle over here. I found it easy to download, and not time-consuming to figure out. It's pretty much "plug and play". As with all synths, if one works at it, one can make a displeasing sound, but it impressed me how many shadings of the basic idea one could get with a little knob-twiddling. This is a good device for sample creation, as the whistel efffect is impressive.
The synth is advertised as producing a Morricone sound, and it lives up to billing, although one can find a goodish few whistle sounds with a little creative use of the settings. This is the kind of straight-ahead one-purpose freeware vst of which the developer should be proud.Read more

Very plain but its a simple plugin. I like the fact that the interface is not to large.
With some reverb and a little eq it sounds real.
One trick pony but its a cool trick :) The plugin stays super glued in my vsti folder. Lately I have been trying to get rid of one trick vsts but this one will stay.
No Docs for the sheperd (but I really do not think they are really needed for this plugin)
A few more are needed.
Stable as can be. Have never had any problem as long as I have been using it.
Value For Money
Its a free plugin but to me it is priceless.
You can always find him around here if you need some help or have question.Read more
