Free audio plugins for music production - May 2010 audio news.

Hi folks,

free audio plugins for techies & musigners this month...again !

Here we are, finally our sound creation agency is born, we called it "Agence faceB" ( the B side agency in french), you can see our latest works here (sorry for english followers but our site is in french)... As you can see we are now located in the "studio B" at the legendary Twin Studios in Paris where the Rolling Stones, Ben Harper, Akon, Joe Cocker, Youssou N'Dour and so much more have recorded... So if you want to come over here, you are more than welcome !

The audio planet never sleeps so there is a lot to say this month, beginning with 2 free audio plugins :

Niveau filter @ Elysia

Niveau is a free eq from Elysia software that supports AU, VST and RTAS format available on Mac and PC. I have tested for only a few minutes but it sounds good, I liked to boost everything on drum tracks... "Its main function is to change the proportions between high and low frequencies. The principle is quite similar to a pair of scales: Dependent on the gain setting around a variable center frequency, the high frequencies are boosted whereas the low frequencies are attenuated (or vice versa) at the same time."

You can download it here.

ValhallaFreqEcho @ ValhallaDSP

"Bode-style frequency shifter + analog echo emulation = skull melting chaos. Perfect for dub, Dr. Who and all of your psychedelic needs. Sonic results range from subtle chorusing and double tracking to barberpole phasing and flanging to endless glissandos and runaway echos."

Available for Mac and Pc in VST, AU and RTAS as well...

You can download it here.

Yes, another free virtual instrument has been released too...

Independence Free 2.5 @ Yellow Tools

A very nice free virtual instrument sampler this month !
