ObliqueVST is a VST version of Brian Eno's "Oblique Strategies" cards. It allows you to load a 'deck', which contains a set of cards; each card has a single phrase to help inspire your creativity. The idea is that you trust the card, regardless of what it says.


  • Generates a random suggestion to inspire you at the click of a button.
  • Load different decks.
  • The deck you choose will be remembered for the next time the plugin is loaded.
  • An editor is included to help you build and share decks.

NOTE: ObliqueVST is available as a VST effect plug-in but is doesn't actually generate or process audio or MIDI.

Great little plugin for giving fresh inspiration. I fully endorse its use as it can help you think outside the box.
Download it.It's free and is a great addition to any FX chain.
It doesnt generate sound or affect any sound , but if the mind is the greatest and most important tool involved in the process of making music , then this little tool can help direct the mind to alternative ways of arrangement.
The fact that its customizable , allowing you to enter your own inspirational thoughts and phrases makes it more personal.
When you click the little ??? box in the bottom right-hand corner , it'll randomly select such gems as " Your mistake was a hidden intention " and " Destroy nothing : Destroy the most important thing "

It's really easy to use , and comes complete with decks that you can load into it.
The secret is to trust what it says , no matter what.
Sometimes it'll throw up something really simple , like just one word...." Water" and you have to try and apply that to your music , so it can be great for developing discipline , as its probably , in some small way , akin to working to a brief set by a film company who would like a particular style of music and are very particular in their request

If its good enough for Brian Eno , it's good enough for me.
Cheers Haydn !! I use it all the time =)Read more
