The kind of sounds keyboardists used
in the days before MIDI. The VSTi is not based on
any particular synth model, but was created with an
ethos of 1970s simplicity – everything on the front
panel, no hidden parameters, what you see is what
I wanted the synth to be musical and
have a practical, useful sound set – presets which
could go straight into recordings without much
tweaking. I feel the presets are a big part of what
this VSTi is about.
Bob also released
a rotary speaker effect.
The FreeST Real Rotor VST rotary
speaker effect replicates the sound of a mic’d up,
valve-type, bass-plus-horns rotary speaker cabinet,
as typically used with an old Hammond organ. It’s a
development of my original Real Rotor effect, which
was integrated into the FreeST VSTX3 virtual organ.
Not only does this new version have improvements
over the original, it’s also the first time the
rotary has been available in its own right, not as
part of an instrument. So now the Real Rotor can be
used with any VST organ, and indeed any other
instruments you feel it would suit.
Bob Leggitt plug-ins are available
as freeware for Windows (VST).
