nakst Apricot

Free plug-ins nakst ApricotLess than a month after Fluctus, nakst presents another great-looking synthesizer in the new CLAP plug-in format. Apricot is a hybrid synth with two oscillators, a third (sub) oscillator, and a sample layer. The oscillators include a unison mode based on the classic JP-8000 Supersaw waveform. Two envelopes, two LFOs, and over 70 destinations provide ample modulation possibilities. In addition to this, Apricot includes an arpeggiator/sequencer and five effects.

Apricot is now in public beta. The plug-in is exclusively available in the CLAP plug-in format (currently supported by Bitwig Studio) and as a native FL Studio plug-in. It runs on Windows and Linux.

GuitarML Epoch Amp

Free plug-ins GuitarML Epoch AmpFollowing up on their machine-learning-based emulation of the Ibanez Tube Screamer, GuitarML has released Epoch Amp. The amp modeling plug-in includes four different amps ranging from clean to high-gain. The developer says that the gain knob has been carefully calibrated to capture the full range of the amps. In addition to input and output level controls, Epoch Amp offers a mix knob for blending the clean and distorted signals. It also includes IRs for each amp model, or you can use your own.

Epoch Amp is available for Windows, macOS and Linux in VST3, AU, AAX, and LV2 formats.

The developer says that the latest version of TesslaPRO is a “technical redesign” and that it has been refined to capture more sonic details while reducing audible distortions. The idea is to bring subtle analog artefacts and coloring into the digital domain and to add depth and dimension to your mixes. You can’t go wrong with TesslaPRO, so be sure to grab the update!

TesslaPRO mkIII is a VST plug-in for Windows (32/64 bit).
