There are a few technical glitches (unless, of course, they're features) but otherwise this little VST grabbed me by the balls and made me squeal in pleasure. The sounds are full, raw and sexy.

To put it in totally untechnical terms, if B4 is a $200 meal and some restaurant that would NEVER let me in, Dirtbag is a delicious breakfast served with love to a starving person. I have no idea what that means, other than I'm hungry right now.

There seems to be a little feedback loop happening on some of the presets, but I imagine it can be fixed easily enough... unless it's meant to be there. This is the Dirtbag, after all. Cleanliness is next to uselessness, maybe.

Worth a try. Some fantabulous sounds come out of this thing, in my opinion. And I also own B4...

A few notes on my ratings... some of them are low because this thing is free (no docs that I've seen... maybe I should look harder), I haven't received a response yet about the glitch thing (haven't been waiting long, mind you) and there aren't too many presets... but it doesn't need very many. This thing is not making an attempt to be all things to all men.

UPDATE: problems have been fixed and new features added! The only thing lacking now is docs, but he has most of the main features listed on his website.

Would love to try downloading it. But I press the link and there is a problem with the page

All his VST collection (17 free VST's, some are real gems) is now available as a unique pack (.zip) here:


or here :


The second link is by far more interesting (when you're in... click on the link "Parent Directory" at the top of the page and you'll understand why it is more interesting...).

Let me add that if you like flutes... his VST named PanFlute is an awesome physical modelisation of flutes! (and not only the pan flute). Wonderful.

Hey, .

I downloaded Dirtbag and like the patches but I must be doing something wrong because it's the only VST in my fruityloop that distorts. I then ran the patches thru my keybaord amp and still get distortion. I'm new to VST and most others I've used pretty much played right out of the box, so not sure if I have to modify certain options. Any help is appreciated.
