Mensla MS-2

MS-2 free pluginMS-2 by Mensla is an awesome FM synthesizer with three operators. The operators can produce seven different waveforms and come with lots of controls. Instead of a fixed set of algorithms, MS-2 offers a flexible modulation section that lets you choose between phase and frequency modulation. Several parameters can be assigned to a macro for simultaneous control. The synth also boasts a multi-mode filter, LFO, and even some effects and an arpeggiator. Impressive!

MS-2 is available for Windows (VST3) and macOS (AU).

Shift Line SkyNet

SkyNet Free PluginShift Line SkyNet is a reverb plugin based on two algorithms from the manufacturer’s Astronaut pedal. It specializes in huge soundscapes with long decay times. You can even blend the two SkyNet algorithms to shape unique atmospheric sounds. The controls are quite simple: Besides the algorithm blend slider, there are just three knobs for decay, volume, and mix, as well as a bypass switch. If you’re into otherworldly reverbs, SkyNet is a nice addition to your plugin arsenal.

SkyNet is available for macOS and Windows in VST3 and AU formats.

    Shift Line pedals are fantastic, I have three including Astronaut V. But they aren’t easy to find in the US. I’m excited to see the Astronaut SkyNet reverb in plugin form, and for free! Thanks for letting us know about it.

    So I downloaded the Shift Line SkyNet (and donated- optional donations accepted). It’s a beautiful sounding reverb, I hope Shift Line are considering more plugins or a complete Astronaut V or Prism reverb plugin.

    It’s running smoothly on Apple silicon. If you’re reading this do yourself a favor and get it. Thank you Shift Line.
