Free music software round-up: Week 11

The new releases and updates in one place

Free music software round up week 11

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.
