jsAudio has released an updated version of jsCompShaper, a freeware compressor effect plug-in for Windows.
“Yet another compressor, but this one has the ability to morph between soft-knee compression and waveshaping as desired. Furthermore, it provides pre-/post-emphasis filtering (similar to a side-chain filter) and a more analog-like attack than jsComp.”
jsCompShaper is a freeware VST effect plugin for Windows (32/64bit).
Stringer : The soundset contains 62 strings patches sorted into ABTRACT, BRIGHT, and WARM categories.
You can choose from classic synthesized strings patches or more modern/hybrid ones.
These strings sounds can help you take your compositions to the next level giving them a richer, fuller sound. Strings sounds are incredibly versatile working well in anything from Hip-Hop or Trance and even film scoring. Forget about memory-intensive synth-strings instruments and lengthy searching through libraries for the right synth-strings sample.
Zebra is incredibly light on your CPU and gives you full customization of a preset to let you quickly and easily adjust the sound to suit your needs. You will quickly find the Stringer soundset is all you need for synth strings!
Price: Stringer is available to purchase for the introductory price of USD 8.00 / EUR 6.50 until 1 July, 2010 (regular price USD 12.00 / EUR 9.80).
