Time To Get Your Inner Vangelis On! Arminator 2 Released by Krakli Plugs

Arminator is a much loved free CS-80 emulation from Krakli Plugs. While not designed to be an out and out pure emulation it sure does a fantastic job of dishing out Vangelis style sounds aplenty.

 

 

After spending  some time last weekend meticulously multi-sampling Arminator for use with the MPC Live, yesterday saw an update on their Facebook page informing the masses of the new and improved Arminator 2 with a whopping 5 banks of 128 patches!

 

Fresh additions include:

The ability to KeySplit anywhere on a key across 10 octaves

Chorus effect

Mono Poly on individual lines

Better scaling of some controls (Filter Freq etc)

Ability to sync the LFO to KeyPress

Keytracking on the LowPass Filter

Sine Oscillator on the Line Amp can now be a 1 or 2 sub octave

Line 2’s Envelope can be delayed by up to 500ms from keypress

 

I absolutely adore the sound of this plugin, and this is of course helped by the amazing patch design.

Unfortunately it is 32-bit only but this can easily be rectified by an app like JBridge if your DAW doesnt include a bridge of it’s own.

A free Windows based software studio guide.

Everyone loves something for nothing and it has to be said the are some astounding free or donationware plug in’s and even sequencers out there.

This morning I stumbled across Synthgeeks “A free Windows based software studio” guide over on KVR and thought we should bring it to the attention of our readers, as the’s whole host of cool plugin’s there that even us guys here haven’t seen during our extensive time trawling the web. Having spent a bit of time working through the huge list that’s in the article we have to agree that the are certainly tools there suitable for both the newest user and even the seasoned pro and given the price of pretty much nothing (donations always encouraged) the really isn’t an excuse not to check them out.

So grab a nice comfy chair and make yourself a coffee then check out all the goodness over at the Synthgeek site.
