Adam Monroe Music releases
free Adam Monroe's Tremolo
18th July 2016
Adam Monroe Music has released
Adam Monroe's Tremolo, free 32/64 bit effect
plugin for Windows VST and AU Mac.
Adam Monroe's Tremolo is a free vst
and au effects plugin conceived as a companion piece
to Adam Monroe's Mark 73 Electric Piano. There are
many free tremolo effects plugins to chooose from,
but I wanted to design my own, with both traditional
amplitude tremolo and stereo panning. The idea was
to implement both "vertical" and "horizontal"
oscillators, and to be able to easily tweak these
values via knobs.
I wanted to make a simplified,
streamlined GUI, with direct access to the plugin's
parameters. The user can adjust both the speed and
depth of the plugin's tremolo, and the speed and
depth of stereo panning. Both effects are routed to
a mixer, so the user can adjust the wet/dry signal.
Sample rates can be easily adjusted.
This has the added effect of either slowing down or
speeding up the tremolo, depending on your chosen
The values for depth and speed of
tremolo and panning effect are quite large. With the
depth values set at maximum, the plugin utilizes
full-spectrum sine wave oscillation for
tremolo/amplitude modulation and full stereo panning
for the "panner."
This tremolo plugin is provided for
free as a compliment to Adam Monroe's Mark 73. The
decision was made to implement a separate plugin for
two reasons: Firstly, to provide tremolo to Kontakt
users, and secondly, to be provide functionality
with other plugins.
