Free Software Friday is our regular Friday feature here at the dBs Music blog. We dig the depths of the music production and media webosphere and discover what downloadable plugin freebies are worth double clicking each week.
We had a lot of fun adding some warmth to our tracks with Caelum Audio's last free plugin (you can read more about it here), but now we're excited to share out thoughts about their newest release, Flux Mini.
Continuing the developers love for adding character and life to your audio, Flux Mini at its most basic is a modulation effect.
It comes pre-loaded with 20 presets, and allowing you to save your own custom presets, Flux Mini's main event is its interactive graph, which allows you to plot points to affect the amplitude or low and high-pass filters. You can only tweak one of these at a time, so filters and amplitude cannot be changed in tandem.
Altering the points on the graph is simple, requiring just drag and drop to move points, and a double click to create and disable individual nodes. With the addition of the sync, resonance and mix controls you can dial in the intensity of modulation to great effect.
The results are really fun to play with here, though if you're anything like us, you might get carried away and venture into the more chaotic sounds that Flux Mini produces.
Flux Mini is available for Windows, macOS (VST3/AU, 32/64-bit) and can be downloaded for free using the link below where you also find installation instructions.
