Looking for some new VSTs


#21

that is what I want…forcing experimentation…I tend to not like clean 80% of the time anyway…

just coped this for 29 dollars over their black friday sale…havent tried it yet, but sounds promising w some of the unusual features.


#22

when did you buy it? says it’s $49 on that link now


#23

sale is over man…it was black friday and the weekend only…not sure Id pay the 49 for it tho


#24

yeh guessed so, some places still doing sales but missed that one, does look pretty interesting tho that sandman

OK I just watched a couple of demos of what you have posted.
I like simplicity, those VSTs with a lot of small knobs and thousands of different settings and presets kind of throw me off lol. I think I’m not ready to use such plug-ins yet, I need more experience and intuition.
I’m definitely gonna go for Valhalla - not sure if Room or Vintage yet - and the Softube Spring Reverb. That should bring some freshness into my sessions.

I feel I should also add something to the topic.
If you’re looking for free VSTs, go for The Interruptor’s stuff:

His Tape Delay and Bionic Delay are among the few VSTs I have been using so far.

I have not used Valhalla Room, but you can do all kinds of room reverb with Vintage…honestly dont let the “vintage” throw you off, it is Valhalla’s most diverse in options/sound. The modern setting is clean, clean, clean if that is what you want.

Honestly unless I want something wild I mostly tweak Vintage’s presets…


#27

really enjoyed the reverb or echo or whatever the fuck he is doing in Loe’s in Swamp 2015 Nov 5 set, make m’feel like i’m on Lucy


#28

Tbh ambiance has really good presets. And it’s free too so there’s really no going wrong just getting it :stuck_out_tongue: even if you only ever use it once it’s worth it


#29

Trueverb is the default one I’ve got on my return-tracks. Go-to delay for me is usually either Soundtoys Echoboy or Waves H-Delay. Haven’t really bothered with anything else seeing as I can’t really hear the subtle differences between each one yet.


#30

Im confusing these valhalla verbs

the vintage one is the best one, with the most features and the one that sounds natural

the shimmer one is a lighter version, possibly aimed at vocals a bit

the UBERMOD is nice but more of a delay fx unit + a few reverb like settings - - but its really cool tbh. doing some weird pitching fx

the room one i thought id tried but havent


#31

Vintage has the most options IMO and has three “color modes” 70’s 80’s and Modern and I think it sounds amaze balls in short.

Shimmer is like one of those crazy pitching shifting (?) “special” FX reverbs. For huge sound scape type stuff.

Ubermod is a modulation FX unit chorus, flange, delay, echo

Room is a room reverb.


#32

for software reverb I usually reach for one of the UAD reverbs, the Plate140 and AKG Spring being my favorites.

I’ve never been a fan of convolution based verbs, I hate the lag and limited options for editing the sound. I’ve gotten pretty great sound design reverb from both u-He ZRev which comes with zebra and the Audio Damage reverbs. I also use my own home-brew reverb that I made in reaktor, but that is more for special sauce type applications, it is weird and wonderful but I’ve never been able to use more than one instance in a track


#33

Was processing some drum breaks yesterday and… How about some tape saturation VSTs? Can you ninjas list your favourite?


#34

i like fabfilter timeless for this … but its more a delay plugin but the tape effect sounds great by itself and then i saturate with some other plugs like camel phat or quartz (that has a neat waveshaper/ volume saturation.


#35

Uhe Satin, Slate, theyre both pretty decent


#36

all the original plugins are still in FL12


#37

They never worked when I tried to open them from old projects, but I’ve already made the switch. 11 is fine for me.


#38

So edit the impulse response as audio then bring it in to the unit.


#39

U-he Satin

that process is like the ultimate in lag between tweaking and hearing results. With algo reverb everything can be edited and modulated in realtime. I know you can get great results with convolution reverb, I just don’t like the workflow. To each their own
