Free Halloween plug-in from SSL

Here at Computer Music we´re rarely scared by plug-ins, but this terrifying Halloween freebie from SSL has had us hiding behind the CM sofa all day. SSL X-Orcism (opens in new tab) is an eerie effect designed your to turn your voice into something altogether spookier with a combination of pitch modulation, reverb, delay, pitch-shift and a howling wind sound that will chill you to your very bones.

According to SSL coder Craig Grove the spontaneous plug-in give away wasn't planned in advance, and merely "came out of a directors' meeting last week as a way of cheering people up in light of 'ghost' stories of economic gloom". It's nice to know that even SSL, whose cheapest mixing console is the £12,500 (plus VAT) Matrix (opens in new tab) still have time for the cash strapped paupers amongst us.

If you´d like to put the willies up your friends you can download this frightening freebie from SSL´s website (opens in new tab), though you´ll have to register before you can get your hands on the free goodies (opens in new tab). While you´re there, make sure you check out the other free SSL downloads including the funky LMC-1 Listen Mic Compressor (opens in new tab).
