This is an interesting looking plugin and I liked the idea of an eq that does mid-side as it's main thing, but this is just a demo with copy protection of intermittent noise, So it is not free as advertised. Developer should change this was it will about many people demos are not free plugins.

Edited. :).

I try out the tec breath and bite controller on Dmitry Sches's Thorn CM synth in a chill/ambient MIDI Guitar piece. https://youtu.be/l7odPRhDoMA. Geek details at Way Music. Want just the music? It is on BandCamp. The instant feedback of controlling through the breath is strikingly intuitive, so I could bring things to the edge but back off before they spilled over into mayhem.

Busta, KVR User Zoned's entry in the 2018 KVR Developer Challenge, gets a 7-minute Digital Guitarist workout of its "harmonic-series-based, instant-play, monophonic sampler for Windows."

Pro FET by Ignite Amps.

Distortion modeling of a hardware pedal made by Ignite.

ProFET, Ignite Amp's entry in the 2018 KVR Developer Challenge, gets a six-minute Digital Guitarist workout. It was the first place winner in the contest.

Drop it in front of a clean guitar amp for instant metal tones.

Professional GUI.

Easy on the CPU.

Nice sounding distortion made for a particular genre's tone.

Within that limited frame, ProFET provides nice tone shaping with a 4-band EQ and some nuance on the transients with the "shape" switch.

There are a ton of different free and paid distortions, each with its own personality. I'll do some more vids on them probably. Try out the demos and freebies and pick the one that suits your ears best. This is a good one if it fits your style.

fun combo of distortion and compression (-distression) and bit-crushing sample rate reduction. It was not showing inputs for the side chaine in bidule so docked a point there! will go in my distortion folder for specialoccasions though.

4 minute video walk-through here.

this is one of my top two go to free guitar amp plugins, along with the first version of Voxengo Boogex. It has a great and fully loaded Fx rack and pedalboard, lot's of tweakability on the amps. Recorded three rreplay albums with it and just did a video demo of how to get a freeamp instance running on any windows computer, no host required. (uses Herman Seib's excellent SaviHost).

Video walkthrough with guitar and DRMR drum machine and a looper.

Mono Repeater.

Pros:
* good general purpose delay
* no "zippering" when adjusting time dial.

Cons:

* Digital cruft when switching
from host to sync and back
* reduce feedback or lower
low pass to recover

Pretty useful as is, but agree with the others that it needs the popup of the frequency on the graph to be really useful as anything more than an estimate.
