Welcome to Phonics Audio. Here you can find the free and open-source nix audio software for Windows, the VSTs are both 32 & 64 bit. Hope you find something here to be the cat's meow 8D
Instrument originally made for the KVR Developer Challenge 2009. It has 260 wavetables, particularly focused on the 303, however it is polyphonic and has 3 osc. I used wavetables from Muon Tau, IL TS-404,Roland TB303, Cheetah MS-6 analog among others. It's a labour of love and damnably frustrating to develop too. There is one singular feature- the ability to sample the output audio stream back into a wavetable. You can generate original soundforms quite easily, just select start and end points, and press the little arrow on whichever osc slot u want to use when in user(U) mode. I will make a v2 soon, to optimize and add visual colour other than greyscale. Other nice stuff it does- porta while polyphonic, unison, aliasing and anti-aliased oscs, PW & PWM, hard sync, draw form with splines, ASM optimized envelopes, 18 filter types, filter per osc. 4, 3 mode mod sources with ~40 destinations, sequencer with customizable arp and multiple patterns, 6 effects, RM & FM
Lu+ is a sampler. Please create folders of samples in the ROM folder, and they will become available in the browser. The sampler is straightforward, but there are many sound-shaping features available to you. Sample the Lu+!
Once more, Infected Sounds has started this build. I was so impressed that I needed to make it my own, and I was in a mania after what I know this build can be- tried real hard to make it cooler. We will utilize our strengths, which for us is wavetable synths. However, in this one the wt are animated. IS's associate made some amazing modulators, and I expanded and implemented what he was thinking. Sect is a full-featured wavetable synth, capable of a diverse range of modern and digitally inclining sounds -I hope it's versatile to tweak!
Phenomen is a grainy,hardstyle synth. IS built it and I added my touches. U can look to it for digital and hard edged bents.
Biotic is a direct implementation of IS's idea for something simple, that still has many possibilities. When I make sounds I like to use this because of it's immediacy. It's a wavetable synth instrument.
Vaccin is a tidy wavetable synth, for modern and digital beatpushing
4Kicks is a bass or kick drum synth. I was very careful to do exactly as the original creator, Nippy Baynes has devised. It's a real nice sounding kick I thought.
This is a drum kit for X-Box controller or PlayStation 3&4 controller. It's got a real simple/intuitive layout. Sorry not quite finished yet. You can play a drum kit with a gaming controller. Hope it's fun. I think it is a bit addictive.To use it: -An XBox controller will need to be installed on your computer. Windows 10 will automatically do this if you plug a controller in, lower Win versions need Microsoft XInput driver installed. -A PlayStation 3 or 4 controller needs a driver made by SCP, get it here: https://emulation.gametechwiki.com/index.php/SCP_Driver_Package -after that is installed, the Xbox controller XInput driver is necessary as per your Win version installed.
This is a basic drum synth with necessary features. Sorry I haven't written the presets/drum sounds yet. Use is straightforward.
Rich Hoffman(Synapse) has allowed me to distribute his VSTi(x86 only) - Junglist . It's an old gem!

Q8 parametric EQ with phase and fft display. All bands are switchable off and on, and it is hybrid-ie. the sliders and graph update each other. One feature that I think is handy in an eq is max gain/reduction scale knob. It's marked dB. You can be delicate or use a higher max. The parameters are switchable, so you can switch between ie. notch and shelf, ABing to taste. It's quite vanilla in that it doesn't really colour, however at extreme settings the biquads will start to exhibit artifacts, which are to be expected I understand. It sounds great when you automate sweeps, which was hard to implement without crashes. Graphics by Grymmjack- nice one bruv
Recorder VSTfx that allows you to cut and export loops, similar to IL Edison sorta. I originally built this to use this idea I had- to play a metronome click on beat divisions of a sound editor’s selection, so you can tell when you selection is looping in sync. Grid divisions of the selection are also displayed graphically. thus enabling easier finding of correct loop points. Additionally it records and you can play the recording back internally or via virtual midi cable, DAW routing or DAW transport to preview your loop in the mix. You can flick left and right with selection, also double and halve it. Zooming of time and amplitude is in there. I will soon have it normalize, and fade the ends of the cut loop. You need a 3rd party app to timestretch, but I am looking at this. Max recording time is 10 min with 3 gig of RAM, but shorter takes are previewed in the mix nicely. There is a drawback with this device, after recording, the plugin will render the sound to conserve RAM, so it requires the user to wait for the same period of time it took to record. Likewise when saving. It will not recall what it has recorded if you close the project, u need to save the .wavs you want. It includes a BPM calculator, so if ur wondering what bpm a track is at, select a bar long loop, and it will be displayed in the footer. Kenny Buck made the GUI, making it more ergonomical also. So much thanks Kenny 8D
3 line variable pitch shifter stomp. The lines can be run in parralel or series. Supports PDC, as the grains take 1500 samples to process. It works without pops in small projects, but when the CPU is busy, it sometimes pops, due to the trigger architecture. I reccomend rendering audio to samples in large projects, as cpu is really limited to a single performance of the player's instrument at once. It works by resampling grains in a streaming trigger sampled array and fading them into each other in a symetrically sloped envelope.
Simple delay. It uses a divisor of the BPM to set the tap length, with the ability to use your own fraction. It’s easy to dial up your favourite dubs.
d1g1t is a straightforward bit crusher and decimator, for old 8 bit sounds, digital breakup or downright signal destruction
I and my mate Joe tried to port a Reaktor distortion, a symmetrical soft clipper, but something has been lost, and it's not included. Mark Holt, who is the moderator over at Synapse forum did the saturation and foldback waveshaping, it's simple enough, but I can't get get simple dsp a lot heh. I wrote the reverb, and the subtraction distortion, which may be novel. I also used fast rms by Bootsy from VOS to make the sustain param. The effect is designed to be a direct attack on lead tone.
Shiftah is a granular pitch shifter by Maik Menz who now codes our graphical programming environment Flowstone. I have simply packaged this one, it really is quite a complex algo for me. It's cyclical artifact or noise is slight, but existent. You can make some pretty nuts sounds with the LFOs, but it's common musical use is changing key. It's also very cool to use a quick fingerboard on electric guitar, and actually play an octaved bass line.
Auto-filter. It has 14 filter types, modulatable by env follower or tripped env. It's built for wahs, using audio as filter mod source and distorsion. The filter curve is animated, so you can see also what you are doing a touch easier. Also you can turn the modulation off and have static cut. MIDI learn is supported. The depth knobs are logarithmic, so the low cutoff for wah is easier to hit now. Go hacks on res and cut via controller! Right click on knob enables learn, select MIDI source with the little female plug. This version has 2 new filter types, formant(vowel) and comb, more presentable graphics and correct filter ranges.
Built by Maik Menz and released to the Outsim community. I've made this one available as VST. It's an unnatural sounding algo. Cheers Myco
The limiter has an infinite ratio close to zero. It tames peaks on masters perfectly well. Also it has helpful visual feedback on the meters. Thanks to the original creator who's details I have lost. Please contact me, coder if neccessary, thanks again.
Mono to stereo is a simple unit that is sometimes needed for mono instruments. It's just a channel merger. It will also turn a stereo file to mono if routed through.
I have been playing more with guitar dynamics in Flowstone. I made this pre-amp with clean and distortion channels. You can take away pick noise with the attack knob, which works best on clean with mix all the way up. The clean mix is higher when there is more of the dry signal, and attack gives faster attack, the higher it is The plug functions as a compressor, for enhanced sustain I thought of the coolest name, which is AMPere vst this amp is better for blues/cleans, compared to torsION, but they work real nice together
Direct implementation of panning. No frills again. The pan law is the best one i have seen which is 75% each at centre, meaning higher volume than more trivial implementations.

This modular VST host is a JUCE library example. I have compiled it for 32 & 64 bits
Slice loops automatically cuts loops to a set length, so if your mix has machine timing, you can end up with perfect bar loops of the mix/track/stem. Please punch in the parameters, and it will cut them for you. To find bpm, my plugin 'Sync' can tell you 8D
