This week DeLaMancha released not one but two free plugins. Psymon, a new free VST instrument plug-in, and Faderratic, a multi-input effect plugin.
psymon continues from styrofoam the series of single-waveform, retro, lofi noise makers. Whilst faithfully recreating the ‘speaker in a box’ sound of the original game, psymon takes a bold leap into the 21st century. You are no longer limited to the 4 notes of the game, but can use every single note on your midi keyboard! wow! With a simple press of the keyboard icon you can bring modern technology to bear and have each note sustain whilst your midi key is pressed.
– one waveform, it’s a beauty
– 1 whole preset
– optional note sustain and velocity
– no flashing lights or memory tests
– batteries not included
faderratic brings you cross-fading of 2 stereo inputs, but with a mind of its own and a ton of options to change the fade shape, length, limits, frequency and probability. faderratic works by generating a pulse on a tempo-sync frequency, and depending on the probability it may trigger a cross-fade event. You can optionally make the fader auto-return to either side and if you feel like it, trigger a fade manually or control the fader movement totally manually.
– probability based auto-cross-fader
– cross-fade is triggered based on user defined frequency and probability
– cross-fade duration in ms
– 13 different envelope shapes for the cross-fade
– trigger alternate fades or auto-return to either input pair
– partial fades by scaling the throw and fader limits
– 4 fade laws
– manual trigger
– option to manually control cross-fader
– all controls assigned to midi CCs
