Been a while since I last posted but I’ve been reading a lot lately.
Whilst I was reading my computer music magazine I came across this cool bit of news.
Cakewalk are now offering their classic synth and effects vst plugins for download.
Cakewalk SFZ+ Professional
“rgc:audio’s revolutionary SoundFont player sample-playback engine, packed in a professional VST/DXi instrument.
Outstanding sound quality, stereo built-in effects, adjustable CPU/quality settings to adjust it to your hardware, fully multitimbral operation, multiple stereo outputs, several loading modes including direct-from-disk streaming and a beautiful interface make sfz+ the perfect choice for SoundFont users and professional composers.”
Square 1 Synth
“The warmness and classic sound of the vintage analog synthesizers, combined with the fidelity and precision of a VST instrument.
A simple synthesizer, oriented to the serious music enthusiast. High quality sound with a warm and easy layout, perfect to learn synth programming: all controls in one panel for instant access, clear and distinctive sections. The built-in effects add depth to the sound and convenience to the sound programming.”
Also available are Cakewalks Audio FX 1 and 2
Cakewalk Audio FX 1
“Cakewalk Audio FX 1 is a series of four dynamic real-time audio processing plug-ins including Compressor/Gate, Limiter, Expander/Gate, and Dynamics Processor. Audio FX 1 plug-ins use 32-bit, floating-point processing, providing you with fast, precise, mono and stereo audio effects. Audio FX 1 can be used as real-time effects during playback, or used to render audio tracks as off-line edits. So you get maximum editing flexibility whether you’re mixing tracks at home or in the studio.”
“Created by precise measurement and analysis, Audio FX 2 uses advanced processing algorithms to apply the classic sound and warmth of several different vintage guitar amplifiers and analog tape decks to your digital audio. Best of all, these plug-ins allow you to get all of the good things associated with vintage gear, such as their distinctive sound and warmth, without the problems and undesired effects that older equipment often have.”
ARPESST:Free Synth/Arpegiator VST Instrument from UntidyMusic.
This is the 2nd of our untidymusic free VST plugins , basically a it’s a messed up synthesisizer.
Wasn’t sure what to call this, I’ve named it ARPESST due to the fact it uses an arppegiator.
Initially it was to be based around the proteus /1 but definitelty not even close to that.
Although it has a curious sound.
DELAY, LFO, FMLFO, ADSR, CLIPPER, SOFT DISTORTION andMOOG Filters.
Controls are random really, it works on two ADSR controlled Oscillators going into one one signal, each Oscillator goes through a moog, a clipper, a distortion and is controlled by an LFO.
Get some weird John Carpenter style moog sounds using the Arp and the Delay.
The ‘TWIST’ control really hurts the ears, but can also create those weirder vibes/effects if needed.
Created some presets but ultimately it’s down to the user to create their own.
It works in Reaper and Sonar and seems to have a relatively low CPU usage.
Hope someone enjoys it anyways.

Umbra VSTi Synth – Free VST Instrument,
Superb Pads created with this free synth available to download here
Umbra is basically a Waveset of 128 complex waveforms as SF2 plus a specially designed VSTi Synthesizer / SF2 (Soundfont) player. The Umbra waveset consists of complex waveforms which
are best suited for dark ambient, soundscapes, athmospheres, textures and rather experimental sounds. The Umbra waveset can be used also with STS-26 and ProtoPlasm21 and other sf2 compatible apps. As of STS-26 and ProtoPlasm 21 it is recommeded not to load it into all slots as sound might get too fat then.
Umbra VSTi Synthesizer /SF2 Player features:
2 Oscillators with 128 waveforms as external SF2 (24 of these waveforms in free version)
6 LFO and 1 Sample&Hold incl. 1 dedicated pitch mod LFO
1 24db LowPass filter with resonance and EG (ADSR)
1 Amp EG (ADSR)
1 Delay bpm synced and modulateble by selectable source
LKO function for Delay (LastKeyOff unleashes full delay amount)
LoBoost & Saturator
Pan modulateble by selectable LFO and option to switch between normal Pan and Delay to opposite direction
4 Lazy buttons
8 voices or maybe 10
