Abletunes have released Abletunes Knobs, a collection of three effects plugin knobs that they’re making free to download.
Abletunes 3 new plugins have been “carefully selected, blended and mapped” to contain several parameters all in one knob control to make it easy to manipulate your sounds. The three plugins are a Drive Knob, Attack Knob, and Space Knob.
Distortion unit that delivers some nasty wide-band distortion (stereo). Great for when you quickly want to add some tone and colour to your sound. Sounds good on drum groups and percussion tracks, adds grit to bass lines, leads, keys, you name it.
Simplified transient shaper (stereo) with only attack section of the waveform being affected. Adds bite to the drum loops, enhances percussive transients, makes guitar solos sound more solid and confident to name a few applications examples.
But stay moderate with it if you just want to slightly accent the transient (or go nuts with 100% just to see how it sounds).
Mid-sized room reverb (stereo). Pretty bright one, creating a mid-sized space, somewhere in between a large room and a small hall. Works well on almost anything, from percussion to synths and acoustic guitars.
Abletunes Knobs are compatible with all the major DAWs on Windows 7 or later and Mac OS X 10.5 or later. It’s compatible with AU and VST, both 23 and 64-bit.
