SampleScience releases Creative Strategies, a freeware VST plugin that can help you overcome writer’s block when producing and mixing your songs.
Writer’s block is an absolute drag, and we’ve all truthfully been there. There is nothing quite as harrowing as sitting in front of your DAW, empty screen in place, and you want to create but just can’t.
Creative Strategies by SampleScience might break the block entirely, but it’ll certainly get you outside of your usual patterns.
First off, Creative Strategies is not an effect or synth but something else entirely. It’s a creative effect, in a sense, at least, but not how you’d think.
Rather than generating a new set of chords or melodic starting point, there are ideas to help inspire or spur on some form of creative output.
These aren’t mere guidance or tutorials but rather short little ideas meant to get those creative juices rolling.
There isn’t just a handful of strategies, either. Users have access to over 130 strategies, ready and willing to get kick your brain into gear and get the tunes flowing.
Creative Strategies is one of the more inventive plugins released this year, and honestly, it is a welcome change of pace from the millionth compressor I feel compelled to test on a kick drum.
Sure, it might not be the backbone of your next production, but it can help prod you in the right direction if needed.
Writer’s block is no fun, and thankfully the folks at SampleScience have considered this. If a plugin format isn’t your idea of fun, there is also a PDF provided free of charge in the download.
For anyone looking to snag Creative Strategies, it is a free plugin, so there are no promo sales or discounts to worry about. Why not give it a shot if you suffer from a creative rut?
Creative Strategies is available for Windows and Mac computers. Supported plugin formats are VST, VST3, AU, and AAX.
Creative Strategies is also Silicon-compatible, meaning folks with the latest Mac computers can get a little inspiration for their next production as well. You will need a 64-bit host for Windows and Mac, however.
