Kuassa Efektor GQ3607
It’s obvious that this free graphic equalizer plug-in takes its design clues from guitar stompboxes like the venerable Boss GE-7. It has seven bands, the first six of which use the same frequencies as their GE-7 counterparts. That’s in guitar mode, but Efektor also features bass and wide modes, each with their own set of bands. The plug-in has an A/B switch that lets you compare two settings quickly. Kuassa Efektor GQ3607 is available for Windows and Mac as a VST, VST3, AU, and AAX plug-in (32/64 bit).
SampleScience RoomPiano V2
It’s been almost two years since we featured the first edition of Room Piano. Time for the follow-up! Like its predecessor, Room Piano V2 is a lo-fi piano rompler with a lot of tasteful ambience. According to the makers, the sound is a multisampled Kawai upright piano – perfect for when your expensive piano libraries are just way too clean. The plug-in comes with an amp envelope, vinyl and tape effects, an LFO, highpass/lowpass filters, and a room reverb. It’s available in VST, VST3, and AU formats for Windows and macOS.
Kwonky Instruments Cyclotronic Signals – Auroral
Auroral is part of the upcoming Cyclotronic Signals Collection by Kwonky Instruments, and they’re giving it to us for free to make our mouths water. It’s a Kontakt Instrument that contains all sorts of electromagnetic interference, radio waves, and VLF recordings. If you’re into intricate soundscapes with an unusual twist, you’re going to love this. Cyclotronic Signals – Auroral requires Kontakt 5.6.6 or later.
