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.
