SnareBuzz is an audio effect plugin that emulates the wires of a snare buzzing when there's another instrument playing near.

Why do you want to emulate this effect if every engineer in the world has tried to get rid of it? Short: because it's cool! Long: because it doesn't exist in the DAW environment, it's something that we are all familiar with, and if you're really used to play live with a band it's weird not hearing it when recording instruments separately.

Do you imagine a Led Zeppelin recording with Bonzo's snare not buzzing?
"Music is people playing live in the same room with eye contact and feeling each other".

Attack and release controls that set how the snare reacts to the incoming signal, HP and LP filters to shape the sound of it, room ambience for a more natural feel, overall gain, panning of just the effect and dry/wet controls.

Insert it on the bass track, adjust the mix knob just a tiny bit and hear how these little wires bring life to your mix. You'll miss it when it's bypassed.

Very useful for an isolated snare or set of toms. It sounds great on the snare and useful on the toms if used sparingly. I'll be using this on all my projects.

Highly recommended.

Great idea! I have one question though. For some reason it just sounds like white noise bursts no matter how I tweak it. I am using it on my kick drum to add more buzz. Any tips or tricks for this? Thanks and its a great idea :)
