Free music software round up week 11
B-400: an electronic piano or a polysynth?

For nearly three months now, MusicRadar has been bringing you news of the latest free music software to hit the internet.

This week, we're dealing with pretty conventional fare: tube amp, clean amp and delay plug-ins and an instrument that can't quite decide whether it's a piano or a polysynth.

You'll find more details about all four below. If you like the look of any or all of them, just click that big blue Download button…

Voxengo Tube Amp 2.0

Platform/format: PC, Mac/VST, AU Download

Just updated to version 2.0. Tube Amp's sound is said to vary from "a mild warm overdrive to a fuzzy distortion". It also sports a -6dB/oct low-pass filter and supports multi-channel processing. We should also tell you that Voxengo has updated another of its free plug-ins, MSED, to v2.1.

AcmeBarGig Aftershock Digital Delay

Platform/format: PC/VST Download

Offering three independent delays (left, right and centre), Aftershock enables you to choose from Tap, Host tempo and standard delay options. It can hold a delay up for to six seconds at 44.1kHz, and there are separate Feedback and volume controls for each one.

AcmeBarGig Tribe Clean Amp

Platform/format: PC/VST Download

AcmeBarGig has certainly been busy this week, as it's also released this Impulse Response-powered amp plug-in (you can load up the IRs of your choice). Promising clean tones and said to be "a blank canvas to experiment with", and comes with a selection of IRs to get you started.

The Lower Rhythm B-400

Platform/format: PC/VST Download

In terms of sonics, B-400 is said to fall somewhere between "an electronic piano and a basic polysynth". It sports three oscillators (each of which can choose from 32 waveforms), a leslie/vibrato style flutter engine output, a clean out and a tube simulator with 3-band EQ.
