10 free audio plugins Freebie Friday

At Toolfarm, we have a massive ongoing list of noteworthy audio freebies that we’d like to share with you. Some get shared sooner than others and some fall through the cracks. Today, we’re going to share a symphony of goodies!

1 Tokyo Dawn TDR Kotelnikov (Compressor)

Platform: Mac | Windows
Formats: VST | AAX | AU, 32-bit | 64-bit

TDR Kotelnikov is a wideband dynamics processor combining high fidelity dynamic range control with deep musical flexibility. As a descendant of the venerable TDR Feedback Compressor product family, Kotelnikov has directly inherited several unique features such as a proven control scheme, individual release control for peak and RMS content, an intuitive user interface, and powerful, state of the art, high-precision algorithms.

Steinberg RND Portico 5043 CompressorLooking for a more robust compressor? Try Kilohearts Compressor

A compressor will even out the audio volume by lowering the volume when the signal is loud. This helps shape the dynamics of the sound both at the initial attack and the sustained tail. Each compressor has its own flavor, and the kHs Compressor tastes sweet.

2 Klanghelm DC1A

Platforms: Mac | Windows
Formats: VST | VST3 | AAX | AU, 64-bit

DC1A has a few tricks up its sleeve: negative (over) compression, parallel (New York style) compression, option to compress left and right channel independently (via the DUAL MONO switch), peak and RMS compression (RELAXED switch on) and DEEP activates a high pass filter to reduce pumping on bass heavy material.

Consequently, Klanghelm put out an update for DC1A about a year ago.

3 Tokyo Dawn TDR NOVA

Platform: Mac | Windows
Formats: VST | AU | AAX

Meanwhile, here is another from Tokyo Dawn. NOVA is, in fact, a parallel dynamic equalizer.

Appearing in the familiar layout of a parametric equalizer, each band also includes a full-featured dynamics section allowing the processor to cover an impressively wide range of applications. Be it a master lacking density, the drum bus asking for more crispiness, or a sibilance problem in your perfect take: NOVA has an elegant answer.
