Welcome to Stay Plugged In. In this installment we deliver bass, drums, and a very cool subtractive synthesizer.

VST Zone U.F.O. Zone Edition

VST Zone U.F.O. Zone Edition

U.F.O. Zone Edition is a three oscillator subtractive synthesizer. Two of the oscillators have a shared filter, which uses two LFOs to modulate the frequency. The third oscillator has a dedicated filter using three LFOs, two of which are graphical, for frequency modulation. An effects section with delay, chorus, and reverb rounds out the sound shaping chores. U.F.O. Zone Edition comes with 160 presets including some very good pads and preset randomization for tweaking sounds. It is available in Windows VST format.

Features

  • Three oscillators
  • 160 Presets

DB-Force The Amen

DB-Force The Amen

The Amen is a unique sample-based synthesizer that gives the user the ability to tweak the “Amen Break” through various means to create a percussive bed for drum & bass and other styles of dance music. The “Amen Break” is pre-sliced into single drum hits with each slice midi mapped to an individual piano key C1 through A4. The user can modify the sounds through various means including a filter, filter and main envelopes, and phaser, bitcrusher, distortion, and reverb effects. The Amen allows producers to create some very creative and warped percussion very easily with simple controls rather than manual slicing and editing. The Amen is available in Windows VST format.

  • Sample-based synthesis.
  • ADSR filter envelope.
  • AD amp envelope.
  • AD envelope for each single slice.
  • Two host-syncable LFOs.
  • Effects section with phaser, bitcrusher, distortion and reverb.
  • Each single slice can be played forward (velocity set from 0 to 100) and reverse (velocity set from 101 to 127).
  • Each single slice can be played once or looped (can be set separately for forward and reverse)
    editable forward start/end positions, editable reverse start/end positions for each single slice
