Maths – FREE Plugin from SocaLabs

Maths – FREE Plugin from SocaLabs Socalabs recently released a wild plugin called Maths. Maths is a FREE plugin and quite different from plugins you may be used to seeing as it produces no explicit effect but works based on user input formulas. These formulas operate as functions and process the audio signal based on your equations. The interface lacks sliders and faders dedicated to singular purposes but instead features two function boxes dedicated to the left and right stereo channels and four knobs that can be assigned parameters. The knobs are capable of being automated within your DAW for further customization. Maths features 25 built-in functions, fourteen operators, and one ternary operator; together these make it a powerful plugin if you’re up for the challenge. Admittedly, this is going to have a steep learning curve if you are inexperienced in the math department. However, those music makers out there comfortable …

Wider – Polyverse Music

Wider – Polyverse Music Polyverse is the company that keeps on giving with yet another killer plugin, and this time it’s FREE. Polyverse released “Wider,” a stereo widener plugin that is modeled after the same feature found in their AMAZING Manipulator plugin. Aside from being extremely quick and kind on your CPU, Wider is also entirely mono-capable meaning that it prevents phase-cancellation often found in stereo widener plugins. Here’s what Polyverse said about the new plugin: “Wider takes the massively popular stereo section from its sibling, Manipulator, and gives you the ability to expand the stereo image of any signal to an awe-inspiring amount of width. However, Wider is a unique stereo plugin in the sense that it is completely “mono-compatible”, meaning that any signal that has been extended will always remain in phase with itself, even if summed to mono. Many stereo effects currently in use have the nasty habit of knocking signals out …
