Witch Pig Alien Step Mutha

Alien Step Mutha free pluginThis terrifying family of extraterrestrial creatures is Witch Pig’s entry to the KVR Developer Challenge. Alien Step Mutha serves up a tasty palette of stepped, modulated, noisy, and distorted multi-effects. You control it by moving the baby aliens around, which allows you to create a stepped sequence. Clicking on the mummy alien opens up a full set of eyeball controls with various parameters for tweaking. If this one doesn’t win the challenge altogether, it surely deserves a special price for the GUI design.

Alien Step Mutha is available for macOS and Windows in VST3 and AU formats.

XiiixxiQ Roundels

Roundels sequencerThis Tricolore-styled free plugin is a non-linear, generative sequencer that uses three Euclidean rhythm generators to generate unique polyrhythms. The outputs of the three generators are summed and can be manipulated in various ways to create the final sequence. Roundels also offers a neat morphing feature that allows you to morph between three user-generated sequences – either manually, auto-animated, or automated in your DAW.

Roundels is available in VST3, AU, and LV2 formats for macOS.
