Signaldust has released an alpha version of Sweep, a simple filter effect in VST plugin format for Windows.
Ok, this is very much beta (or even alpha) quality stuff right now, but I need some bug reports. I admit this was made rather quickly (total development time about a week or so) but I thought it makes for a good tech-test and might be useful too.
The plugin itself is a simple filter with morphing LP->notch->HP response, which can be cross-faded with a bandpass response and the final result can be further cross-faded with the dry input. It’s designed for manual foolery (or automation) so no envelope followers or LFOs or anything, sorry. Does have full parameter smoothing though (which someone already claimed a bit sluggish so comments on this and I just about might make it a bit less aggressive).
The “safe” Q-range maps 100% resonance to 75% of the “full” range, such that random tweaking of the knobs should not result in accidental ear damage. With “full” range it goes for self-oscillation (though it’s fairly weak without input signal). The saturation (which is controllable with the drive control) is in the resonance path only, so this isn’t really a very good distortion device.
Sweep is available for free download via KVR Forums.
