Wavesfactory Spectre: Spectral Enhancer Plugin

Wavefactory’s Spectre is a sound-shaping plugin promising to combine a sound enhancer with a graphical parametric equalizer.

Spectre processes the difference between the input signal and the EQ signal, introducing harmonic content to just the part of the spectrum that you want from a variety of saturation algorithms based on classic recording hardware.

You can choose from eight different saturation algorithms to get the sound you’re after, from warmth to creamy or harsh.

Free PaulStretch VST Plugin for Mac and Windows

PaulStretch has been around for quite a while to create extremely lush sounds by stretching audio to the extreme, but only for Windows (well, there’s been ways of building it for Macs but with quite the hassle, apparently). Now, this isn’t for nifty timestretching to fit loops, this is stretching done to create pretty awesome soundscapes. Want to turn Darude’s Sandstorm into an ambient soundfest? Here you go.

Enter PaulXStretch, a free VST/AU plugin for Windows, Mac and Linux that solves all that for you.

Get the free PaulXStretch plugin here: xenakios.wordpress.com/paulxstretch-plugin/

Check out this lush version of No Doubt’s “Don’t Speak” slowed down 8 times:

Eplex7 DSP Quantakor VST Plugin

Eplex7 DSP Quantakor is a new VST / AU plugin aiming at helping you produce futuristic, sci-fi, experimental, atmospheric, FXs, soundscapes and pads suitable for anything from EDM to witch house to film music.

The plugin got multi-octaved and multi-sampled sounds, waveforms and synths and according to the authors a lot of the sounds were made using their own artificial intelligence resampling / morphing and neuronal synthesis.

While being a polyphonic synth you can play in monophonic mode too with legato slides.

FabFilter releases FabFilter Pro-R Reverb Plug-in

FabFilter fans, rejoice! The makers of the acclaimed Pro-Q 2  EQ and Pro-C 2 compressor just extended their plug-in line-up with FabFilter Pro-R, a reverb plugin that promises natural reverbs without over-technical controls.

Their take on this is what they call a musical approach, focusing on easy-to-use controls for brightness, character and distance to achieve the sound you’re after. To help you out further there’s a space control setting that automatically adjusts the decay time for specific room models as well as a real-time spectrum analyzer and both a decay rate EQ and a 6-band post-EQ to help you design the reverb.

FabFilter Pro-R is available as digital downloads for both 64- and 32-bit Mac and Windows (VST, AU, AAX, RTA) and will set you back around USD$178 (€169)
