Refire by Outobugi is your one-stop shop for drum processing with five modules for creating banging drum tracks. Other freebies this week include an updated bundle from Analog Obsession and a cute bit crusher from Vox Samples.
Outobugi Refire: Free Multi-FX Plugin for Drums
Refire by Outobugi is a new free multi-effect plugin with five distinct modules for drum processing. First up is Bang, a transient shaper with an adjustable envelope and gain. The Heat module offers three kinds of distortion and saturation. It’s got three buttons for selecting the desired mode and a drive control unmistakably labeled as “Burn”.
The next module is Sub, a sub-bass oscillator for extra low-end oomph. Detail is an interesting module for shaping the highs that combines a high shelf filter (Air) with a tilt EQ (Tone) and a noise generator. And lastly, Clamp is a soft/hard clipper.
With this chain of five modules, Refire has everything you need to create hard-hitting drum tracks. Nice!
Refire is a VST3 plugin for Windows.
Analog Obsession Color Bundle: Analog Preamps and Distortion
Analog Obsession has once again updated a couple of older plugins and repackaged them in a free bundle. The new Color Bundle consists of the PreBOX preamp and distortion and Distox multi-mode distortion plugins. Both were available before, but they’re now been updated with additional features and 4x oversampling.
PreBOX is a great collection of 11 different models of preamps. In addition to ±24 dB input and output gain controls, it’s got switchable high-pass and low-pass filters.
Distox combines virtual tube and op-amp circuits, both of which let you choose from various models (3 op-amps and 4 tubes). This plugin also has sweeping high-pass and low-pass filters for shaping the perfect distortion sound.
The Color Bundle is available for macOS and Windows in VST3, AAX and AU formats.
Vox Samples Pixel Rabbit: Free Bitcrusher Plugin
After last week’s Fat Cat, here’s the next animal-themed free plugin from Vox Samples. Pixel Rabbit is a bit crusher, plain and simple. It’s got a huge bit crush knob and two smaller ones for adjusting the gain and mix. For quick and easy bit crushing, Pixel Rabbit has got you covered.
Pixel Rabbit is a VST3 plugin for Windows.
