Noise Engineering has today released three free experimental Synthesizer & effects plugins for macOS and Windows (VST3, AU & AAX) Sinc Vereor, Virt Vereor & Ruina.
The developers are known in the community because they build very exciting, unique Eurorack modules. For a short time, they have also been making VST3, AU & AAX plugins. These are the first free ones.
Noise Engineering Sinc Vereor, Virt Vereor & Ruina
Sinc Vereor and Virt Vereor are both very experimental Synthesizer plugins. Both use the same modulation and effect core including an ADSR envelope, analog-style multimode gate/filter, and also vintage-inspired chorus. In the Oscillator, the two are very different.
SV brings back the sound of the gone-but-not-forgotten Sinc Iter Eurorack module. Besides classic waveforms with morphing,, you have a wave folding tone control with which you can make these more harmonically rich and complex. Plus, you have a super mode that adds 6 phase-offset oscillators and a noise mode for percussion, effects, and more.
VV, on the other side, uses a set of unique synthesis algorithms which premieres in the Arturia MicroFreak 3.0 update. These will also be available later in the upcoming Virt Iter module. It includes:
- Bass – a quadrature algorithm by Bernie Hutchins
- Sawx – a supersaw inspired beast
- Harm – an additive algorithm with spectral control and distortion of partials
Anyone who knows the algorithms from the MicroFreak 3.0 update knows exactly how special and beautiful weirdly they sound. Virt Vereor is a great synth for razor-sharp and unique basses, leads, or just experimental sounds.
Ruina is a creative stereo distortion plugin with an experimental touch. You get seven digital distortion algorithms inspired by the Ruina Versio module. The plugin features a wavefolder, a multiband saturator, a chaotic suboctave generator, octavizer, and phase shifter. It also features a notch or bandpass filter with adjustable tracking, and a control to set the order of the distortions in the signal flow to further customize your sound.
Further, you have an overdrive that adds 128x gain of maximal destruction. Ruina is capable of creating warm, lush distortion up to complex destruction at high settings. That promises a lot of experimental fun
To benefit from these Noise Engineering free plugins (Sinc Vereor…), just login/create a user account and download the NE Products Installer. They run as a VST3, AU, AAX plugin on macOS & Windows and are free of charge.
