Acustica Audio releases Mac AU version of Nebula3 Free

Really good news for the Mac users : Acustica Audio recently released the Mac OS X AU version of Nebula3 Freethe free fully functional, cut down version of Nebula3 Pro. Nebula is a multi-effect plug-in that is able to emulate and replicate several types of expensive audio equipment, eliminating the need for costly and bulky hardware. Nebula uses libraries which are created using a sophisticated "sampling approach" making it possible to "record" aspects of the sound of audio devices and play them back. The result of this sampling process is highly realistic, complex emulations of many types of audio signal processes, captured and utilized all within a plug-in that is compatible with all major DAWs and editing software. Inside this bundle you will find:

  • Nebula3 Free (CoreII Engine): the free multi-effect plug-in.
  • N.A.T.3 free: the free FX Sampler.
  • The free library: small, fully-functional preset library.

Nebula3 Free is available for Windows and Mac OS X in VST and AU effect plug-in formats. Definitively worth a try !!

Prosoniq updates NorthPole AU to v1.2.3


Yes you've read it right, it was one of the first freeware VST if not the first I have tested, I thought it was long-dead but apparently it is not !
So rejoice, well maybe not  !

The really good news there is that this little gem is still being taken care of , the bad news is that it is now AU only. 



NorthPole is a free effects plug in for AudioUnit compatible applications on the Macintosh. It adds a fully programmable virtual analog synthesizer filter with resonance, envelope follower and an integrated post-filter digital delay to your audio production environment.

Please note that an older Mac VST/RTAS and a Windows VST version is available (click the links to download them). They are unsupported any may not work on recent systems. Try them at your own risk.
