MeldaProduction Releases FREE MOscilloscope VST/AU Plugin

10

MeldaProduction has updated their MFreeEffectsBundle collection and released the brand new MOscilloscope freeware VST/AU/AAX plugin for Windows and Mac OS.

Having tested hundreds of free and commercial music making tools in the past five or so years, I am not easily impressed by new plugins nowadays, but my initial impression when I launched MOscilloscope for the first time was simply – wow! This thing delivers that WOW factor right out of the box.

With most oscilloscopes, you’d have to do some manual work first in order to zoom onto the desired section of the waveform. But MOscilloscope does all the hard work for you, thanks to its built-in pitch detector which locks on to a single cycle of the waveform like a boss. I’ve seen some other plugins that attempt to do the same (such as the free Dust Analyzer plugin which was featured in our recently published Arturia MicroBrute review), but the results were never as smooth and precise like what you get with MOscilloscope.

In addition, MOscilloscope packs all of the great features found in MeldaProduction plugins, such as a fully customizable and resizable user interface, precise input monitoring, GPU acceleration, and so on. They’ve really improved the visual style of their plugins with the last few updates, making them compatible with absolutely any screen size and workflow you can think off.

So, is MOscilloscope the best free oscilloscope plugin out there? Well, if you’re looking for ultimate simplicity in a tool that you’ll use to analyze your synths, then yes. This oscilloscope is extremely easy to use and it adapts to the audio signal on the input like no other. If you want a more traditional experience, though, you might want to try something like s(M)exoscope (32-bit only) and the recently released Oscarizor plugin by Sugar Audio.

On the negative side, MeldaProduction’s installer still installs a bunch of files on the C drive, even if you choose a completely different drive as the destination during the install process. The plugin files will be installed in the designated folder, however the presets and other common resources will be saved on the main system drive, which is a major pain if your C drive has a severely limited amount of free space, as is the case on my laptop. Still, in all honesty, I wouldn’t mind installing MOscilloscope even if it saved 2 GB of Black Eyed Peas music to each hard drive on every computer I own. It really is that good. Many thanks to MeldaProduction for releasing this absolute gem as a freebie!

MOscilloscope is available for free download via MeldaProduction (125 MB download size, EXE installer, 32-bit & 64-bit VST/AU/AAX plugin format for Windows & Mac OS).

Share it like a boss.

    Doing quite a lot of synthesis lately so I definitely have to check this one out.

    Also gonna have a look at the stuff mentioned by Drew.

    Thanks all for the tips

  2. I’ve been having issues with these plug-ins… I usually download the 32-bit version for windows and just put it in my vst folder and my DAW (Acid Pro 7) recognises them automatically, but for these my DAW says it failed to open them… I thought maybe its the licenses, but this is all free plugins…

    • From MeldaProductions´ download page: “… Since each plugin has about 100kB thanks to *MeldaProduction Plugin Kernel technology*, you can simply install all of them. If you only want a few to be installed, the installer will allow you to choose the ones you need. …”

      Use the installer, set the VST folders for your particular system and let it do, what it needs to do.
      Do NOT try to mess anything up by moving .dll files around!

      Used this way, all selected plug-ins from the “Free Bundle” work just fine in various hosts (Wavelab, Cubase, Bitwig, OcenAudio, maybe some others, that I tried and forgot to mention) on Windows 7 64 bit – though, 32 bit plug-in versions also work.

      Maybe, you should try a different host software than Acid…

      • acid runs any other vst 32-bit plugins just fine.
        I do know what I am doing with these .dll files so those are not the problems.

        Anyways there’s way too many people hating on Acid for me to get any help here smh..

    LOL

  4. Tomislav — I agree. This is the best ‘scope plugin I have seen. I bought the ‘paid’ free bundle on sale, which is nice. You can size the suite of plugins and more. I also bought the creative bundle and synth. He writes some good stuff.
