They’ve added another compressor to the bolsterisers bundle, and it is free to download during Halloween. According to the devs description, bolsteriser rev F is a sidechain compressor VST plugin with a particularly grungy character.

Via Freeware Genius
One of the major annoyances with watching video on the iPhone is the need to convert them into iPhone friendly format first (H264 video encoder, AAC audio, 640 max width, and MP4 wrapper). And while in theory video conversions are not that difficult, in practice I found myself simply avoiding watching video on my iPhone altogether, rather than deal with video conversions and with iTunes insisting on managing my media library.
Enter the free VLC app for iPhone. Yes, folks, this is the same multiplatform free media player that you’re familliar with on your PC, and its still super awesome. It allows you to play any video format of any size on your iPhone or iPad, including MKV, AVI, MPEG, and over oversized MP4s with large HD resolutions, as well as most formats you could think of.

Definitively not new plug-ins but I had to re-install them, so I decided to make a blog post about them !
The Kammerl-Kaske-VSTs are a comprehensive set of five soundmanipulating VST audio plug-ins, ready to be used with your favourite music production software like Steinberg's Cubase or Ableton's Live. Kammerl-Kaske-VSTs is a cooperation between Julius Kammerl (audio programming) and Klaus Kaske (artwork) and contains following plug-ins:
The Slicer-Plug-in cuts all incoming audio signals into slices and then re-arrange them in a very musical way. Plenty of different rearrangement sequences can be selected to generate beat patterns and breaks just on the fly.
The Scratcher-Plug-in enables you to do digitally scratching even cooler than hand-made scratching with vinyl: you are always in sync and the speed and type of your virtual scratch movements are freely adjustable and easy reproducable.
By cutting-up and changing the pitches of all incoming audio signals you can create surprising effects, sounding like switched-off turntables, broken tape machines or shuffled grooves.
The Looper records incoming audio material and instantly makes a loop out of it according to the timing information given by your sequencer. By changing the start- and endpositions, the duration of your loop or even by modulating the loop size you can create amazing new rhythms and 'bouncing-ball-breaks' as easy as 1-2-3.
The Warm Distortion: Like the name says: this plug-in makes warm distortion, comparable to the distortion effect of analogue tube amplifiers.

It is definitively a sad month after the retirement of The Walkman by Sony, Panasonic discontinues Technics …
TOKYO (TR) – Fans of analog musicwere dealt another blow when consumer electronics company Panasonic announced earlier this month that it would be discontinuing the audio products within its Technics brand, most notably the legendary line of analog turntables.
On October 20, the company said that it was winding down production of the Technics SL-1200MK6 analog turntable, the SH-EX1200 analog audio mixer and the RP-DH1200 and RP-DJ1200 stereo headphones due to challenges in the marketplace.
