Happy Friday! It’s time again for our weekly roundup of free stuff for you to use in making music. This week, there’s a swinging sequencer and inspiring filter for Max for Live, plus a free multiband distortion plug-in for OS X.
Its the Arps
For their latest free Max for Live device, Point Blank have delivered an arpeggiator with some extra features to get a swinging groove going. Watch instructor Dan Herbert reveal the Funky Arp in the video below:
Shoogler 2: Electro Shoogloo
A while back, we introduced you to the Shoogler, a Max for Live filter effect from Certified Trainer Simon Stokes aka Petrichor, designed for dubby real-time effects. Now, meet Shoogler 2.0 - with pan controls for each filter, serial and parallel arrangements for the two filters, and more, there’s a lot to dig:
Squash it Down
Swedish app makers Klevgrand certainly have simplicity on the brain with SquashIt - the free multiband distortion plug-in for OS X features a sparsely laid out and intuitive GUI. Select the band crossover points, and the effects levels for all three bands - and you’re good to go. Capable of subtle dirt and over-the-top distortion, SquashIt is a fun little effect to add to your arsenal.
