Blue Cat Audio has been running a series of teasers about a new product they are planning to announce at NAMM 2018. As part of that campaign, we have learnt that it is called Axiom and the tease pictures suggested it was some kind of amp sim plug-in but they have revealed much more and now we know that it is now only an amp sim plug-in but also a multi-effects processor designed for guitar and bass.

In this week's Friday Free Plug-in, we are featuring HOFA System, a free, with "freemium' elements. modular processing environment. Using System you combine patchable plug-in elements to create bespoke plug-ins. Think of a Modular Synth for audio and you'll know what to expect. There are some paid for elements but even without using them, this is still a very capable plug-in which, because of its modular nature, encourages experimentation and originality.

In this week's Friday Free Plug-in, we are featuring Acon Digital's Multiply, a free and versatile chorus effect with a unique twist. Each simulated voice is processed with a phase randomising filter so that unpleasant comb filter effects are avoided. Multiply can simulate up to 6 additional voices and both the pitch and the loudness of the voices can be modulated. There is also an integrated equaliser consisting of low cut, low shelf, high shelf and high cut filters that can be applied to the effect signal. An integrated pre-delay section makes it possible to create modulated and diffuse echo effects.

In this week's Friday Free Plug-in, we are featuring SnareBuzz from Wavesfactory, a free plugin which synthesises the rattle of an under-snare mic.
An adaptation of the better known trick of using a side chained gate and a signal generator to synthesise extra bottom end on a kick drum recording, using the same technique is it possible to create a convincing snare rattle using a noise generator and a side chained gate. This free plug-in from Wavesfactory offers this technique in a convenient, ready-made plug-in.
