1. Tremolator

by: Soundtoys

 
Tremolator
 

Tremolo and Auto-Gate

Analog guitar tremolo effects and beyond with beat-synced rhythmic chopping.

Need tremolo? We’ve got you covered. Tremolator emulates the tremolo effect of classic hardware like the old Fender Vibrolux guitar amp, and even the great tremolo sound of the Wurlitzer electric piano.

We added dynamic control of speed and depth that lets the tremolo respond to the music, and then tossed in MIDI sync to lock to your tremolo to tempo. Of course, we also included our programmable Rhythm Editor that lets you write custom patterns and turn Tremolator into an outrageous rhythmic auto-gate. Vintage guitar effect and modern remix tool at your service.

Tremolo of Old

Gear heads that we are, we broke out the test equipment and analyzed the waveforms created by some of our favourite old hardware. Then we used our custom LFO waveshape editor built into Tremolator to perfectly recreate them.

It’s very interesting to look at these shapes and see why each of these vintage pieces has a unique sound. Pass that through our Analog mode, which emulates going in and out of a piece of analog hardware, and you’ve got all the pieces of a great sounding tremolo.

Chop Shop: Auto-Gate Mania

Switch the nice smooth tremolo waveforms over to a sharp squarewave and you turn this into a monster of an auto-gate. You can lock it to MIDI with the flip of a switch, then select 1/8th notes, 16th notes or whatever fits the rhythm you need.

If straight note pulses aren’t what you need, use the Rhythm Editor to write your own cool groove (You can even pull a groove from our library). More? Add some swing or shuffle, accents, and analog mode. You can even use the Waveshape Editor to tighten or loosen the gate time.

Get Dynamic

In the Tweak menu, you’ll find the Dynamics controls. These parameters let your playing control the speed and/or depth of the modulation.

You can create cool speedups or slowdowns based on how loud or soft you play. You can create smooth increases in depth as your chords fade out, or heavy tremolo that fades away. Plus there are already some great presets in our Dynamics folder that you can “tweak” to fit your needs.

3. BLEASS Dragonfly

by: BLEASS

 
BLEASS Dragonfly
 

Dynamic Tremolo Wildness

BLEASS Dragonfly is a completely new approach to tremolo effect which brings new sonic possibilities to all music producers. Make your synths, voices or any melody “vibrate” in correspondence with its own frequencies, or with external basses and Ieads! Just like in Billie Eilish’s song “Xanny”, Dragonfly helps you achieve the same effect as when the voice gets modulated by heavy bass.

BLEASS Dragonfly automatically syncs the tremolo effect applied on a track using various triggers.

First, you can use the pitch tracking module on either the input audio track (“self mode”) or a sidechained audio track (“sidechain mode”). You also can use the MIDI input to trigger Dragonfly with accuracy: the tremolo will automatically sync with the notes’ frequencies. Finally, a manual mode allows you to set a fixed frequency.

Then you can finetune your settings by adjusting the fine, factor, smoothness, stereo, attack & release. The “Wild” mode applies a waveshaper to the signal to produce a subtle sauration. The final tremolo effect rate is mirrored by the flapping wings of the Dragonfly.

Source Stage

  • Manual –  Tremolo rate is set by the Rate knob. Tremolo amplitude is set by the Amplitude knob.
  • MIDI – Tremolo rate corresponds to the rate of the lowest MIDI note received by the plugin. Tremolo amplitude corresponds to the velocity value of this note.
  • Self – Pitch tracking on the input signal gives the tremolo rate. Tremolo amplitude matches the input signal’s amplitude.
  • Sidechain – Pitch tracking on the sidechain signal gives the tremolo rate. Tremolo amplitude matches the sidechain signal’s amplitude.
  • Source Channel – Sets the channel to be analysed for SELF and SIDECHAIN modes.
  • Amplitude – Sets tremolo amplitude in MANUAL mode.
  • Gain – Sets the input gain in MIDI, SELF and SIDECHAIN modes.

Dragonfly Stage

  • Rate – Sets tremolo rate in MANUAL mode.
  • Fine – Offsets the detected pitch value by +/- 0.5 semitone in MIDI, SELF and SIDECHAIN mode.
  • Factor – Detected or set rate is multiplied by this factor to give the final tremolo rate.
  • Smooth – Sets the smoothing duration of rate variations.
  • Stereo – Sets phase difference between left and right channels.
  • Attack – Attack duration of the effect.
  • Release – Release duration of the effect.
  • Mode – SIMPLE is a basic tremolo. WILD uses complex waveshaping for warm and saturated effect.
  • Wildness – Sets waveshaping strength in WILD mode.
  • Visualisation – Dragonfly wings are animated to match the rate and amplitude of the effect. The green label on the left indicates the input MIDI note and rate. The Blue label on the right indicates the applied MIDI note and Rate.

Mix Stage

  • Gain – Output gain of the effect.
  • Dry / Wet – Dry / Wet balance.

PC

  • Windows 8 and later (64-bit only)
  • VST3

Mac

  • macOS 10.9 and later (64-bit only) (including macOS 11 Big Sur and M1 processors)

4. MTremoloMB

by: MeldaProduction

 
MTremoloMB
 

MTremoloMB is a powerful multiband tremolo with an adjustable shape. This effect, naturally, is designed to modulate the sound levels. However, when coupled with our incredible adjustable oscillator technology, this plugin becomes much more than just any normal tremolo effect.

Features

  • Dual user interface – the plugin is not only extremely versatile, but also quick and easy-to-use thanks to 2 graphical user interfaces. First there is a simple default one with several predefined modes, but just a few controls, which lets you start quickly and easily without any knowledge. All you need to do is choose what you want and use a few knobs. And the plugins also has an advanced mode, which provides all the extreme features the plugin offers.
  • 1-6 fully configurable independent bands built on 3 perfectly transparent crossover algorithms (analog, linear-phase and hybrid) with fully adjustable limits and input gains. Includes peak meters for all bands and the master.
  • Continuously adjustable oscillator shape – every oscillator in our plugins is defined by a mix of predefined oscillator shapes, custom waveforms edited using our MeldaProduction Envelope System (MES), step-sequencer and several methods for algorithmic postprocessing. It is the most advanced approach for defining oscillator shapes.
  • 4 global modulators – in each instance you can have up to 4 fully-featured modulators that can modulate any set of parameters including other modulators! In this way you can make the sound move in time, be less static and more interesting. Each modulator works as LFO, follower, midi/audio triggered ADSR envelopes, a pitch detector or even a combination.
  • Up to 8 channels surround processing – our plugins can handle not only mono and stereo signals, but also up to 8 channels of surround audio, making them ideal for audio production for movies, games etc.
  • Full randomization – using a single button you can generate completely new settings. By clicking the button you can walk through the billions of possible settings and find the best one for you! And if that’s too much, you can just hold ctrl and MTremoloMB will only slightly modify existing settings.
  • Extremely advanced and easy-to-use user interface – our products are always designed to enhance the workflow. You can easily change all values, fine-tune each control in multiple ways. Easy orientation in a standardized GUI, textual editing and smooth visualization with almost unlimited zooming are standard in all of our plugins. Moreover our plugins are the world first (and still the only ones), which support resizable and stylable GUI’s.
  • Automatic synchronization to host tempo – every oscillator and modulator in the plugin can automatically synchronize to the host providing as natural a sound as possible while not offending other tracks.
  • MIDI controllers with MIDI learn – you can map any parameter to any MIDI controller or MIDI keyboard and control it realtime or record and automate it.
  • Very fast, optimized for SSE and SSE2 processors.
  • Global preset management and online preset exchange – using a title button you can save your settings (which are shared on the computer) so you can easily access these in other songs. Moreover all plugins can automatically share your presets and download presets of other users from our servers (if this feature is enabled). We are building a community and you can be a part of it!
  • Fully automatable.

System Requirements

Windows

  • Windows Vista / 7 / 8 / 10 (32-bit or 64-bit)
  • VST / VST3 / AAX compatible host (32-bit or 64-bit)
  • Intel/AMD processor with SSE2 support

Always use 32-bit plugins in 32-bit hosts, or 64-bit plugins in 64-bit hosts!

64-bit plugins can’t work in 32-bit hosts even if the operating system is 64-bit. Do NOT use 32-bit plugins in 64-bit hosts. They would have to be bridged and can become slow and unstable.

Mac OS X

  • Mac OS X 10.9 and newer (64-bit only)
  • VST / VST3 / AU / AAX compatible host (64-bit only)
  • Intel/AMD processor with SSE2 support or Apple Silicon processor

Note: Please check your product PDF documentation for more information and installation instructions.
