HY-Plugins has released HY-TP2, a freeware tremolo and auto-pan effect in VST and AU plugin formats for 32-bit and 64-bit digital audio workstations on PC and Mac. The plugin is proudly hosted exclusively on Bedroom Producers Blog.
HY-TP2 is an updated version of HY-Plugins’ older tremolo effect, now featuring an improved user interface and a slightly modified feature set. The new version comes with two additional LFO shapes while removing the envelope follower and soft clipper functionalities found in its predecessor. The LFO module now also features a phase shift knob for precise timing adjustments.
If you haven’t used the previous version of HY-TP2, here’s a quick look at its core features. Located on the left-hand side of the user interface is the Mod Wave section with the LFO waveform selection panel (sinewave, triangle, ramp up, ramp down, log up, log down, square, and random), a phase adjustment knob, and a smoothing knob which smooths out the shape of the selected waveform. The Tremolo/Panner section features the modulation rate, modulation depth, and modulation width knobs. The width knob affects the plugin’s behavior as a tremolo or a stereo auto-pan effect. The filter section features a pair of tone filters (low-shelf and high-shelf). Finally, the Output section features the output volume dial.
In addition to the main components listed above, HY-TP2 also includes a built-in preset manager for storing your settings for later use, along with a bypass switch, undo/redo buttons, a preset randomizer, and the reset switch. As expected from an HY-Plugins release, the GUI is fully resizable and will look perfect regardless of the screen size and resolution.
HY-TP2 is available for direct free download from Bedroom Producers Blog. In the downloaded archive, you’ll find both the auto-installer and the manual installation files. HY-TP2 will work great in tandem with the free HY-Lofi2 bitcrusher VST plugin which is available exclusively on Rekkerd.

Installer run, and the Message Successfull Installed comes but the Plugin is not in the AU or VST Folders (i have searched in the default system folder and the user folder).
The only what was installed are the HY-TP2 Presets.
i have installed any other hy-plugins and the work / are present in the folders
Hi Michael, thanks for reporting the issue. I’ll look into it right away. In the meanwhile, you can use the manual installation files to run the plugin.
I can’t use the Manual Files, the are for Windows only, I use a Macintosh.
Hi Michael, the macOS installer is now fixed.
Thank you, for the Info, Tomislav
Manual installation is only for PC on Mac you need to use Pacifist
Thanks for the Info, This was very helpful
Manual Installation work now
macOS installer now fixed!
Yes the installer is now fixed but now Presets are goes to HY-Lofi2 folder and not to HY-TP2 Folder
Thanks for reporting, forwarding your message to the developer.
Fixed! Please download again.
Thanks Now everything is fine
Happy to hear that, thanks!
HY always brings home the goods! will make another awesome addition to my collection of VST plugins!
Awesome. Thank you!
This is an extremely good plugin, and I think it just unseated Pecheneg as my favorite tremolo. I even managed to get a half-decent Leslie effect out of it. I’ve not tried HY before but this freebie has certainly caught my attention so I look forward to checking them out. Thanks 😃
I agree! HY-TP2 is such a handy tremolo effect and quite versatile at that. Still, zero bloat and perfectly streamlined.
Be careful moving this plugin around in logic pro x. I dragged it one spot up on the same (empty)channel and it blew my ears out harder than ive ever experienced…ive have some spikes before but this was the most painful in memory. Im sure this company makes great products that many people enjoy but I already have ear/hearing issues and this just made me fearful of putting on my headphones…which i haven’t done in months…TLDR: mute yr output if yr moving it around or risk instant pain…my ears are still ringing and my hearing is super compressed right now. Sorry…just needed to vent
Hi John, I’m very sorry to hear that! I hope that your hearing is better now. I’ve experienced similar issues with other plugins in the past, both with headphones on and with monitors cranked way up… not fun! I’m forwarding this issue to the developer.
This Link Has Been Suspended………….Thats what im getting. Please Re-Upload
Wohoo! Love this developer. Hope he will make a new synth soon.
Strange thing happened: Bitdefender moved HY-TP2.vst3 and HY-TP2.dll into quarantine. Gen.Variant.Symmi.81758 right after I unzipped the file HY-TP2.zip!
Anyone else having a virus alarm?
HY-TP2.vst3 and HY-TP2.dll are infected!!!

Hi Michael, thanks for your comment but I just ran a scan using VirusTotal and all files are 100% clean by all engines.
Looks like a false positive! As of today, only 2 of 64 still found an infection.
I trust HY enough to install it on a test machine now ;-)
invalid version issue on Logic is not fixed and on GUI its version 188.8.131.52
Hello, sorry for the inconvenience. Please try the download again and let me know if you have the same issue. It’s possible that your browser was showing the old (cached) link.
I try to download it again but get this error message Access to ‘hytp2.zip’ was limited due to high download traffic. Tried about 20 times
By the way previous version says on GUI 184.108.40.206
i’m getting this error while trying to download the installer file “Access to ‘hytp2.zip’ was limited due to high download traffic.
You can still download the content of this link – get Premium plan or higher”
Now the link works. I am will not able test before tomorrow since on High Sierra you need to re-start you Mac and I am middle of back up session
Now its correct version with Fixed invalid version issue on Logic
