Free Software Friday is our regular Friday feature here at the dBs blog. We dig the depths of the music production and media webosphere and discover what downloadable plugin freebies are worth double clicking each week.
Baby Audio continues their work in creating free, bitesize versions of their paid plugins with the release of Magic Dice; a one-knob atmosphere generator based on their reverb/modulation plugin Spaced Out.
Spending hours fine-tuning parameters and getting sucked into a plugin / hardware effect is one of the joys of production, but we'd by lying if we said we never wished for something to just do the heavy lifting and serve up something fantastic without the faff.
That is, in a nutshell, precisely what Magic Dice does. Built on the same algorithms that power Spaced Out, one press of the knob delivers transforms your audio source. Huge soundscapes, rhythmic modulation and reversed reverb were just some of the excellent sounds generated in our short experiment with Magic Dice.
Generating ideas is lightning fast and with only a mix slider to play with you'll spend less time pulling open the various macro controls and instead really listen for the sound that resonates with you and build out from there with the rest of your toolset. So, if you're looking to get the most out of your next ideation sesh in the studio, we can't recommend this enough to spark some ideas.
Magic Dice is available for Windows and macOS and can be dowloaded for free using the link below. An email address is required to download the plugin and will sign you up to Baby Audio's newsletter, which you can unsubscribe from at any time.
