WOK has released REFO-D, a freeware reverse delay effect in VST plugin format for Windows and the first release in a forthcoming series of simple effect units.
The first plugin of a new “one trick pony” series: an easy to use delay with reverse-forward sound option and a filter in the feedback path.
REFO-D is available for free download via WOK’s Facebook page (3.1 MB download size, ZIP archive, 32-bit VST plugin format for Windows, made with SynthEdit).
Although the download link is located, it is not necessary to click the Like button on WOK’s page. Simply visit the page linked above and hit the download link to get your free copy of the REFO-D delay effect.
Reverse delay effects are somewhat of a rarity in the freeware world (GRevDly is the only other one I have installed on my computer), so I’m pleasantly surprised by WOK’s latest release. The thing with reverse delays is that the delayed signal is played in reverse, which is a really cool effect. Try improvising a guitar solo or a synthesizer lead sequence with this effect, you’ll have a blast!
REFO-D can also do some pretty neat sounding filtered delay effects, thanks to the resonant filter in its filter path. You can hear an example of this, as well as the reverse delay effect on a drum loop, in the demo track which is embedded below.
WOK has announced that this is the first release in a forthcoming series of simple one-trick-pony plugins. I can’t wait to see what he has in store for us, although I’ll soon be upgrading my system to 64-bit which will probably be the end of SynthEdit plugins for me, sadly.
