This week's featured free plug-in from our free plug-ins database is Revival, a free sonic enhancer module for the Slate Digital Virtual 500 Series rack (VMR) with hot-swappable modules, enabling you to put a complete processing chain in one window. But you don't need to buy into the whole VMR rack, you can get the free Revival Sonic Enhancer and the VMR Rack for free.
What Is Revival?
Revival borrows aspects of tubes, tape, transformers, and world-class analog filters to create two separate processes. Shimmer adds depth, clarity, space, width, and air, while Thickness adds warmth, punch, body, and fatness.
Revival can be used on individual tracks, like adding air to pop vocals or fatness to drums, but also try it during the mastering stage to bring out details in full mixes.
Sign Up And iLok Required
You will need to sign up and you will also need an iLok2 or iLok3 because even though the host VMR Rack and Revival are free they still use iLok licenses but you will also get a 15-day trial activation code for the full VMR system with all the VMR modules to try out.
When you hit the Download For Free button on the Revival page, you will need to sign up giving your name and email address, 2 things will happen.
- You will then receive an email from Slate Digital with 2 iLok activation codes, one for Revival which will never expire and one for a 15 day trial for the full VMR system.
- A page will open with links to the installers and a variety of help resources.
Use the appropriate download link for your operating system, install the plug-in and then use the iLok License Manager to redeem the iLok Activation codes.
