  1. Ambience
    "Reverb that rivals the quality of the best commercial reverbs."
  2. Meringue
    A delay effect. Unlike most delays, the delay runs alternately forwards and backwards, rather than continually forwards. It has a filter/saturation section, which will be familiar to users of other Expert Sleepers plug-ins.The delay time and the filter LFO can be synced to the host application's tempo. The phase of the delay and the LFO can also be reset manually.
  3. Black Water Reverb
    A popular Reverb effect
  4. Buffer Delay
    A utility plug-in that delays audio by an exact number of sample frames, which can be useful when attempting to sync up audio accounting for delays through certain digital devices.
  5. Transverb
    Transverb is like a delay plugin, but it can play back the delay buffer at different speeds. Think of it like a tape loop with two independently-moving read heads.
  6. Freeverb
    A popular Reverb Effect
  7. Scrubby
    Scrubby goes zipping around through time. Speeding up or slowing down playback, moving backwards or forwards, Scrubby does whatever it takes to reach its destinations on time.

    A utility plug-in that delays audio by an exact number of sample frames, which can be useful when attempting to sync up audio accounting for delays through certain digital devices.
  14. Rider
    Automatically rides the gain to keep the apparent volume level consistent. Useful for mastering, broadcast, or just listening.
  15. Gain
    Allows adjusting the gain in large steps which do not introduce any additional quantization noise. Fine gain control is also available, but it introduces the normal amount of quantization noise inherent in most digital gain stages.

  20. mdspCompressor
    A simple and effective compressor with classic controls auto gain compensation and preamp to overdrive it.
  21. Blockfish
    A versatile compressor with countless ways to shape the incoming audio.
    Unlike many other digital compressors, BLOCKFISH has 'soul'. It likes to bite, but it can be tamed easily once you've learned how to use its potential.
  22. Floorfish
    A simple expander / gate device, easy to set up and offers a broad variety of processing, ranging from slight expansion, backgound noise attenuation to extreme gating effects. What's different from similar units is the ability to scan the source and adjust the transistion curve accordingly.
  23. SupaPhaser
    3 to 23 (yes, 23) stages phaser with feedback. phaser operation is controled by a mixture of LFO and envelope follower, both configurable. enhanced stereo effect. pre-phaser distort or saturate.

    more plug-ins will follow...
  26. Gyrovibe
    A classic vibrato chorus effect with a wide range of sounds. It's great for keyboards — especially for a cool 60's Hammond sound. It also produces a wide range of rich, full vibrato and chorus effects for guitar.
  27. ModVibe
    A delay vibrato with a couple of features to mix things up. There are two delay units. The first is a forward delay and the second is a feedback delay. In between these two is a modulation unit to scramble, shake, sift and swirl the contents. The vibrato oscillators are independently set and can be shaped using frequency modulation.
  28. MonstaChorus
    An analogue style stereo chorus effect with a simple set of controls and great sound quality.
  29. Phaser
    A fairly straightforward phaser effect.
  30. Free Bundle
    A set of three high-quality effects plug-ins. The Nomad Bundle includes a Nomad-Phaser, Nomad-Sweeper, and Nomad-Tremolo.
  31. OttoPhilter
    An auto/touch wah filter with LFO control and sub-octave generationIt has two filter sections that are independently controlled by the output of an envelope follower.
  32. OttoPhomant
    A wah effect based on morphing formant filters. It can be controlled using touch-triggered sweeps or envelope tracking. The filters can also be controlled using MIDI expression control.
  33. OttoVibe
    An auto/touch effect with MIDI control. OttoVibe works much like an envelope-controlled filter, except that instead of a filter, it has a modulation section. The envelope controls the rate and depth of the modulation effect.
  34. PhaseDelayArray
    Three effect units chained together in an interesting configuration.
  35. PhaseTone
    A free frequency-dependent phase rotation and correction plugin.
  36. xTrem
    A tremolo unit capable of a nice range of tremolo shapes. It works as a mono or stereo tremolo. In mono mode, the left channel controls are active. The two channels are fully independent except for the tremolo depth setting. This gives it the capability of producing some interesting panning/tremolo
  37. Bad Cable
    Attempts to simulate a bad cable. This produces some harsh distortion, much like a super fast gate might create.
  38. Overflow
    Generates digital bit overflow distortion. Much like early ADC chips would react to excessive input levels by overflowing the available word length.
  39. SupaTrigga
    A plugin which could be called AutoBreaks, AutoGLitch or whatever. When synchronised to tempo this plugin will take the incoming audio and re-arrange it in a musicaly sensible way. Think of it as a realtime ReCyCle with fun options. A bit hard to explain how exactly it works, just give it a spin!
  40. Geometer
    A visually oriented waveform geometry plugin. It works by generating some "points" or "landmarks" on the waveform, moving them around and messing them up, and then reassembling the wave from the points.
  41. Buffer Override
    Buffer Override can overcome your host app's audio processing buffer size and then (unsuccessfully) override that new buffer size to be a smaller buffer size.
  42. Skidder
    Skidder turns your sound on and off. While that may not sound very rewarding, you have a great deal of control over the rate, pulsewidth, on/off slope, panning width, etc. You can also relinquish some control to randomization.
  43. EQ Sync
    A ridiculous equalizer. You have no control over the EQ curve, if you try to adjust the faders they will escape, and the EQ parameters don't make any sense anyway. The EQ setting changes on its own according to your song's tempo.
  44. Polerizer
    Takes every nth sample and polarizes it. The number of samples skipped and the strength of the polarization are adjustable. You can also implode your sound.
  45. Camel Crusher
    A versatile 'colouring' multi-effect plugin. It offers two characteristically different distortion sounds which can be blended together to create a wide variety of tones and textures. Great for guitars, drums and plenty more!
  46. Convolver
    A plugin for doing realtime convolution using impulse responses from the user's hard drive. Convolution is the process of combining two signals to produce a third signal, which reflects their co2mbined frequencies.
  47. Freesound Bundle
    • chebyshev - a distortion unit which uses various low-order chebyshev polynomials to add even or odd harmonic distortion.
    • compand - a combined compressor/expander audio unit plugin. It has a softknee control as well as a switchable rms/peak level detector.
    • decimate - bit depth and sample rate reduction for added aliasing and decimation noise. a very noisy plugin.
    matrix a mid-side to left-right encoder and decoder. for mid-side microphone arrays, but also useful when needing to apply effects to only the center or the sides of a stereo mix.
    • phasescope - the standard studio tool for seeing the phase relation between your left and right channels.
  48. FuzzPlus 2.2
    An update of the popular free distortion pedal model. Cloned from a rare vintage fuzz pedal, FuzzPlus 2 is perfect for thrashing drum loops, making ripping synth leads, or absolutely tearing off heads with your bassline.
  49. GWS RanPan
    This is a random pan effect, which can be linked to tempo.
  50. hD
    A distortion effect. It can also directly add note harmonics — up to two octaves higher — and it contains a sub-octave generator.
  51. Model
    A MOdulation DELay plug-in. From classic echoes to strange modulations and musical patterns,
    you can Model your sound with unlimited random modulation patterns, filters and ring modulator.
  52. More Feedback Machine
    If you've ever found that all the usual delay plugins you use don't offer certain things like panning control, unlimited feedback, multi tap or sophisticated modulation, more feedback machine is the plugin for you.
  53. OTBitmodder
    Bitcrushing and Downsampling plug-in with anti-aliasing and modulation features.
  54. SubRingFM
    A ring modulator. It also has two filters for shaping the sound. It also has a suboctave generator. And the oscillator can be manipulated using FM.
  55. Vinyl
    The ultimate lo-fi weapon, iZotope Vinyl uses 64-bit processing and advanced filtering, modeling and resampling to create authentic "vinyl" simulation, as if the audio was a record being played on a record player.
  56. Voweler
    A simple vowel filter, with the possibility of mixing two vowels
  57. Warp Drive
    Distortion That's Out Of This World
  58. Wavebreaker 2.0
    A wave shaper, outputs a weighted sum of the ten first Chebyshev polynomials, evaluated in the point represented by the input sample. Each vertical slider controls a weight.
  59. Wavebreake r1.0
    A wave shaper, outputs a weighted sum of the ten first Chebyshev polynomials, evaluated in the point represented by the input sample. Each vertical slider controls a weight.
  60. Bitviewer
    Counts the bits really used in an audio stream.
  61. s(M)exoscope
    Waveform visualisation plugin.
  62. RMS Buddy
    A handy tool for tracking RMS and peak volume information. It provides a cumulative, running average RMS of the audio signal, momentary RMS values, and it keeps track of the peak volume levels.
  63. BeatCounter
    A simple plugin designed to facilitate beatmatching software and turntables. It displays the current tempo in beats per minute (BPM), while the bottom window displays an accumulated average over the last few seconds. BeatCounter is the perfect tool for DJ's that want to integrate computer effects or elements with turntables.
  64. FreeG
    Not just a meter, more than a fader. The Sonalksis FreeG is an intuitive tool that can be used for a variety of applications to increase the control and flexibility of the signal flow in the insert chain of the host.
  65. Inspector
    A compact, but powerful, analysis tool. From spectral analysis to extensive metering, Inspector gives you a full picture of your audio. Use the spectrum analyzer to get a clear and accurate representation of your mix. The peak and RMS meters, with customizable caution and warning zones, allow you to visualize and quantify the levels of your audio. The balance meter provides a visual indication of the balance relationship between channels.
  66. Crayon Filter
    A multi-band filter plug-in. The band controls allow you to add a type of filter to the output of the signal. You can engage up to five filter types at once (one of each type). Low Pass attenuates high frequencies, giving your sound a "dull" feel. Band Pass attenuates both above and below the cutoff frequency, for a "thin" or "nasal" sound, High Pass removes low frequency signals. Notch removes just a small band of frequencies from the signal. Peak boosts a small band of frequencies in your audio
  67. Cyanide 2.0
    Variable waveshaping distortion. Just the right thing to poison your audio to death, with awfull colors
  68. Decrackler
    An advanced filtering function that will remove most of the scratches and crackles that may be present on recording made from old worn out vinyl records.
  69. SiTone
    DiTone splits your input signal into two separate streams. An independent effect is applied to each stream. Then the dry input signal can be mixed into each stream independently. One stream is lowpass filtered and the other is highpass filtered. The two filters are designed to overlap in a nice musical fashion. Finally, the two streams are mixed back together with independent volume controls.
  70. F8
    Eight independent filters. Each filter has its own LFO. The filters can be set to be either "Lowpass," "Bandpass," or "Highpass" independently. Each filter has a resonance and cut-off frequency parameter. The LFO applies to the cut-off frequency of the filter. The rate, phase, and depth can be set independently for each filter. This allows for some pretty complex effects. Note that the resonance of the filters (Q) can be driven into self-oscillation. It can make things loud (and fun).
  71. Frohmage
    Resonant low-pass filter. Highly resonant low-pass filter, Cutoff frequency unit selection : Hz or musical note, up to 15 additional bands, harmonically distributed, delay on each band for unique phaser effects, distortion stage, with two routing schemes, very fine MIDI control
  72. Spitfish
    A dead-easy to use de-esser, aimed mainly at mono or stereo vocal tracks. Just like classic analog de-essers, this unit dynamically filters out harsh, annoying s-like sounds that would otherwise 'spit' in your face.
  73. xEQ
    A straight forward parametric EQ/Tone Control. It consists of Low and High shelf filters and three Peak/Cut filters. It is very useful for placing around distortion effects.
  74. Monomaker
    Monomaker is a simple mono-merging and stereo-recentering utility. You can use it to progressively mix down a stereo signal to mono and you can use it for equal power, center-shifting pans.
  75. Latency Fixer
    This plug-in reports to the host application that it has a latency (controlled by the plug-in parameters) but does not actually apply any processing to the audio signal. This causes the host to use its own latency compensation to advance the audio fed into the plug-in by the requested amount.
  76. Speedster
    A pitchshifter, timestretcher, spatial separator
  77. voxReducer
    Designed to reduce the level of the main vocal track in a stereo music audio file. VoxReducer includes four factory presets designed for different musical genres. These include Jazz, Light Rock, Hard Rock, and Metal.
