Some Real Free music software round-up

Ourafilmes Sonic Transformer

This other-wordly multi-effects processor features five ‘alien eye’ knobs that enable you to control several parameters simultaneously. In use, it’s described as enigmatic and chaotic – the idea, it seems is just to tweak away and see what happens. However, we are assured that reverbs, filters, chorus and delays are all in here somewhere.

QuikQuak BarChimes

If your music needs an injection of tinkly melodic percussion, look no further than this bar chime emulator. 36 bars are presented in the photo-realistic interface, and the developer says that “collisions, gravity and audio are accurately portrayed”. There are no parameter controls as yet (this is a beta release) but these and a Mac version are among the things promised for the future.

RobRokkenAudio Roktion 808

Whether you want “subtle mellow overdrive” or “face peeling distortion”, Roktion 808’s developer reckons that this plug-in has you covered. There are three gain stages (you can use the input buffer to clean the sound and prepare it for these) and a 4-band parametric EQ. You can download the plug-in for free, but its donationware status means you should make a financial contribution if you keep using it.

LePou HyBrit Series

The name alludes to the fact that these guitar amp plug-ins are based on not one British model but two (we’re not told which). You get preamp, head and FullStack versions for maximum flexibility
