The team at Virharmonic have produced some free beautiful violin instruments, they call it the Violin Freebie, all you need is the free UVI player to host them.
They say of the library;
This micro library contains deep sampled pizzicato with 4 dynamic layers and 4 true sampled round robins. As most of you know it is in our nature to sample chromatically, so this library is no different, offering genuine samples for each note played. We have made this pizzicato very tight for any insane rhythmical style, but we have made sure that it remains raw in sound, so it adds an organic touch to any mix. For the second part of the library we have sampled a nice little 16th note repetition spiccato recorded in 120bpm. You can tempo synchronise this in your sampler or DAW and it is simply a lot of fun to play especially if you involve the UVI arpeggiator. This time it has one crisp dynamic layer with 4 true round robins.

In the video Ryan shows his audio post facility in East Williamsburg and talks about his particular approoach to sound deisgn and how he use sound effects and his first experiences of using the Hybrid Library from Pro Sound Effects and goes into more detail on how he designed the sound for an Icelandic Geyser scene in the Sony Pictures Classic “Land Ho” feature film.
Free Sounds Effects From “A Sound Effect”
Many of the sound effect creators on A Sound Effect, another site that sells sound effects from a variety of independent sound effects providers, have teamed up to offer an early Christmas present of over 130 sound effects for free which work out to be 2 GB when uncompressed, or about 1.5 hours worth of sounds.
The gang at Tokyo Dawn have released another cool free plug-in, the TDR Kotelnikov standard. This is what they have to say about it;
TDR Kotelnikov is a wideband dynamics processor combining high fidelity dynamic range control with deep musical flexibility. As a descendant of the venerable TDR Feedback Compressor product family, Kotelnikov has directly inherited several unique features such as a proven control scheme, individual release control for peak and RMS content, an intuitive user interface, and powerful, state of the art, high-precision algorithms.
With a sonic signature best described as “stealthy”, Kotelnikov has the ability to manipulate the dynamic range by dramatic amounts, while carefully preserving the original tone, timbre and punch of a musical signal. As such, it is perfectly suited to stereo bus compression as well as other critical applications.
The concept is “proudly digital” in the sense that it doesn’t try to emulate any previously existing device. This is the original!
TDR Kotelnikov Features
K Research have updated their free KR-Delay plug-in which now offers AAX 64 and 32 bit suppport for Pro Tools 10 and 11. Don’t forget to check out our other free Pro Tools plug-ins here

Russ shows 3 ways to use the new Waves One Knob Pumper plug-in in this free video. He uses it on synth, bass synth and drums.
For all of you who thought it might be a OneKnob plug-in, congratulations!
So for this Black Friday is giving away a brand new plugin developed especially for you. It’s yours and it’s free untile the end of Cyber Monday. After that the regular price for OneKnob Pumper will be $80.
It is designed for achieving an instant ducking effect because OneKnob Pumper simulates sidechain compression, saving you the need to route the kick track to the sidechain input of a compressor. The punch line has to be…
It’s ducking awesome.
We will get a video review as soon as we can.
Our friends at Waves are launching a brand new plug-in this Friday and you can get it FREE.

Slate Digital have just announced the release of the long awaited Virtual Mix Rack Plugin.
Not only that, there is a suprise module “The Revival Sonic Enhancer” which amazingly is a free download for everyone - Just download the VMR Demo and you’ll get a time limited trial of all the VMR modules but the Revival Sonic Enhancer is yours to keep - Free !
Here are the details of the Virtual Mix Rack:
Modules included in the Virtual Mix Rack are:
FG-N ‘BRIT-N’ EQ
The FG-N is a digital recreation of one of the most classic discrete Class A British equalizers from the 70’s.
All aspects of the circuit are modeled, including the rich harmonics and saturations that naturally occur when the equalizer is in use. The original model only contained one mid band, so we thought it would be nice to double it so that it has two mid bands. This equalizer is lush, fat, and bold. It sounds great on everything from drums to vocals, and can even add the perfect saturation to synth and electronic tracks.
FG-s ‘BRIT 4K’ EQ
The FG-S is a digital recreation of one of the most famous British console equalizers from the 80’s.
This equalizer also has rich harmonics and interactive mid bands with a fat musical tone. This is the ultimate workhorse mix eq that can be used on any track. It is great for surgical cutting strokes, or wide bell and shelf strokes for making drums and guitars punch out of the speakers.
FG-116 ‘FET COMPRESSOR’
The FG-116 is the most precise digital replication of the classic American FET limiter. No expense was pared to capture every nuance of this classic sounding compressor/limiter. From its trademark timing characteristics to the extremely musical sound of its transformer, the FG-116 will give engineers the musical and fat tone that has made the hardware so famous. The FG-116 sounds great on everything like lead vocals, drums, and bass guitars.
FG-401 ‘VCA COMPRESSOR’
The FG-401 started as a recreation of the classic british console channel compressor, but morphed into quite a lot more. First, we gave it variable attack and release with increased range which added more tonal options. But then, we added an optimal transformer inout, and not just any transformer, the famous transformer from the British Class A Console! This adds a beautiful warmth and sheen to the compressor. Last, we added an entirely unique second circuit path that provides and additional smooth and rich tone. The FG-401 is perhaps the most versatile mix compressor in the world that can sound good on any source you feed into it!
And of course the Free ‘REVIVAL SONIC ENHANCER’ of which you can see Steven Slates demo video here:
