One more free plugin. Not a new release but one from October. Audiority has recently released Dr Drive, a new analog-modeled overdrive plugin (PC/Mac) available as a free download.
It is an analog simulation of a modern overdrive inspired by the Horizon Devices® Precision Drive.
Audiority Dr Drive
The plugin interface is in the form of a guitar pedal and that hosts a good amount of features. It has controls for levels, bright, attack, and drive. With the virtual pedal switch, you can turn off and off the effect. Further, you have a noise gate, input & output level, and mix control in the right corner.
This overdrive fits a large variety of applications for either the classic and the modern metal guitar player. It also works on any other audio signals. Perfect to distort synths, basslines, drums, and more.
Audiority Dr Drive is available now as a free download for PC & Mac (VST2, VST3, AU, AAX)
