Tweakbench – Free Instruments and Effects VSTs

Tweakbench

I found a great site with many unique free VSTs called Tweakbench.
Tweakbench is an "audio software project" by one person, Aaron
Rutledge, and offers free VST instruments and effects for windows VST
hosts.

Right now the site has links to 14 Instruments (carillon
dropout
field
minerva
monomate
padawan
papaya
peach
pippo
rebar
ritual
tapeworm
toad
triforce), and 8 Effects (breakdown
cairo
grumblebum
maelcum
mashup
pudding
sideslip
yoink).

Peach
To give you a feel for  type of  plug-ins at Tweakbench,  I’ll briefly discuss one I started playing around with called Peach.

Peach is a synthesizer "based on the classic nintendo entertainment
system’s psg audio system. more than 30 waveforms from many memorable
sounds and tones have been meticulously deconstructed and tamed." This is a fun little synth for sure and will make you reminisce about classic gaming music. Check out an MP3 sample.

As I mentioned all VSTs are free and have documentation. Note that you can get ALL the VSTs in a bundle for $5  (the 5 bucks to cover bandwidth costs).

If you really dig some of these VSTs and want to support this sort of development, Tweakheads accepts donations and are also selling t-shirts.
