#Musicproduction: Cableguys updates PanCake #freedownload

PanCake is a free plugin for most flexible panning modulations.
You can construct your own modulation curves. They can be easily drawn using soft or hard control points, thus producing gentle transitions or sharp bends in the waveform.
PanCake's LFO can be beat-synced to your DAW, from a fast 1/128 note modulation up to 32 bars. It can also be set free-running from 0.02 Hz to 5.24 kHz, and can be triggered vie MIDI.

#Musicproduction: Airwindows releases Drive - Free Overdrive Plug-in for Mac & Win VST & AU #freedownload

Airwindows has released Drive, a free overdrive plug-in for Mac OS X and Windows in AU and VST plug-in formats.
If you know how to use Airwindows Density, you know how to use this. It's exactly the same layout, except that it doesn't go to negative values: this one's just for slam.Why bother with such a similar plugin? Because of the tone.
Density gets a thick, full, fluid tone because it's got a super-smooth transfer function. In fact it's the theoretical optimum distortion transfer function for having no grit or crunch: it 'hides' the distortion very well.
