Abletunes has announced the release of the free Abletunes Knobs bundle that contains 3 one-knob plugins for Mac OS X and Windows:
- Drive Knob – stereo distortion unit.
- Attack Knob – simplified transient shaper.
- Space Knob – mid-sized stereo reverb.
The plugins are delivered in both VST and AU formats and 32/64-bit versions. All plugins support MIDI automation, namely FX Level and ON/OFF switches.
Distortion unit that delivers some nasty wide-band distortion (stereo). Great for when you quickly want to add some tone and color to your sound. Sounds good on drum groups and percussion tracks, adds grit to bass lines, leads, keys, you name it.
Try automating its level on transitions, try automating its ON/OFF switch to add extra vibe and chopping pulsation couple of bars before the drop.
Simplified transient shaper (stereo) with only ATTACK section of the waveform being affected. Adds bite to the drum loops, enhances percussive transients, makes guitar solos sound more solid and confident to name a few applications examples.
But stay moderate with it if you just want to slightly accent the transient (or go nuts with 100% just to see how it sounds).
Mid-sized room reverb (stereo). Pretty bright one, creating a mid-sized space, somewhere in between a large room and a small hall. Works well on almost anything, from percussion to synths and acoustic guitars.
