2 free mini delays.
'dirtdelay',precursor to the mighty 'dirtylay pack',delay with filter and decimator and
'2delay' a stereo delay with 2 separate/bpm-syncable delays with panning.

dirtylay-demo.zip (demo) (sound drops every 60 secs,otherwise fully fuctional)

only 2.00 (pack includes dirtylay,multi-out version and the massive wobblay!)
A bpm syncable/free running delay with 5 seperate delay lines.
Feedback set to zero gives exacly one tap,
the 5th is triggered by the 4th to give a 'tail'.
Each is sent to 2 state variable filters
Plus 5 seperate Decimators and Pitchshifters.
Pan and Volume for each delay,and 2 filters for the incoming signal too.
Controls are grouped together,so that 'drawable' curves are possible.

this pack also includes a multi-out version with 6 x stereo outs.
please note that the first pair is the dry audio,
the other 5 outs are the seperate delays.

now includes 'wobblay' dirtylay's fat brother.
a big fat wobbling monster.
based on dirtylay's 5 delay lines,
adding LFO's for every delay and
every filter,pitchshifter and decimator in the chain,
including the dry signal.
also distortion,chorus and
subtle to extreme pitchshift modulation.
wobblay is free with the dirtylay pack.

wobble on,my friends..............

unicycle.zip (free) by spacedad + mbreges

NEW updated version 0.14 is now in tune! (for old projects please tune down -9 semi-tones)
an 8-bit polyphonic wav-synth with 300 four-cycle waveforms to choose from,inspired by niffla's fourcycle synth.
the 'drawable' ADSR drawbars are connected to AMP,PITCH,FILTER and BADNESS,and the double LFO's make for nice rhythms,tempo-syncable or free running. they can be subtle or can achieve extreme speed taking it into self-oscillation for nasty aliasing noise.
(filter is by Rick Jelliffe,and there's also a sample-rate/bit-rate reducer by Lance Putnam and a great decimator by Antto).

originally entered in the
kvr developer challenge 2009

(manual included.)


just a simple wav player written for jacky-lee and anyone else who wants to
play sounds with the minimum of fuss with nice big buttons!

frankenstein2.zip and franklets.zip(free)

he's back!
a new gui,many improvements from version 1.0, honed it down and made it more my own,
should be more stable now,but presets won't be compatible.
thanks to runagate and pinkjimiphoton for the great new presets!

head=formant synth with waveshaping.
body=6 op fm synth with multipliers.
heart=5 osc synth with lfo's.
arms=fm osc.
legs=casio noise-type synth.
lightning=delay modulation.
charge=delay with distortion.
brain=main control room.
(volumes for each synth+master volume+adsr with lowpass filter/limiter/saturation).

flanklets were dismembered by runbeerrun
allows the use of the main parts with much less cpu than big frankenstein2.
great idea,many thanks to him for doing these for all to share.
flanklet1 is franks head,for franklet2 he ripped out his heart and sewed on the arms
and franklet3 is the body with a brain ontop.not for the faint hearted!


a crazy harsh-sounding synth made by jacky-lee,with only a little help from me.


based on a rubberband guitar made by jacky-lee in reception class.
it's sample-based with some lo-fi pitch-shifting and distortion capabilities.
(came 21st in the kvrDC07!)


a monster synth made up of badly sewn together body parts.
(old version frankenstein_0.92 is here in case anyone needs it.)


more rubbish,this time polyphonic,came 26th in the kvr06


rubbish was my first vst.a dirty little mono synth.

my first step sequencer is available from niall moody(free)

my first step sequencer is a simple 16-(or 8-)step sequencer vst aimed at children. It was written by niall moody in conjunction with jacky-lee and me.
it comes with a shuffle mode and a note randomise button, as well as a scale-forcing control, to make it so that you can only select notes within a particular scale.
the plugin syncs to the host's transport, so to start it playing, hit play in your host.
it's written in C++ for both Windows and OS X.
of course niall did all the clever stuff and very kindly translated all jacky's ideas into reality, which was no mean feat as we kept changing our minds and made some impossible demands. many thanks niall,your're a (very talented) saint!

more details:
i make these plugins for my own use,but have chosen to share them.mostly for free,with a few very cheap ones now and then to help me with my costs.
they've all been tested on winXP SP2 and win7,but i can't guarantee they'll work on every system.so please test them on an unimportant project with the volume down,until you are happy.

purchasing info:
after payment is received all orders are dealt with by humans,so please allow for world time differences, dad duties and other possible catastrophes a spacedad may be experiencing.
we'll send the links + passwords as soon as possible! (usually within 24 hrs)any concerns,please email us and we'll get back to you as soon as possible.
we don't use complex protection methods,as we like to make it easy for the customer,so please keep your files safe and do not share.we appreciate your support.
-we like to keep prices as low as possible so everyone can afford them.micropayments are great,but please make sure you have enough funds in your paypal account to avoid stupid credit card charges.if still for some reason you can't pay,please contact us for alternative payment options or an iou.

installing vsts:
usually is a simple process of unzipping and putting it in your vstplugin folder,which is usually situated in C drive/Program Files/vstplugins or something similar.
(for 64bit windows,you'll need to put them in your Program Files(x86)/vstplugin folder.)

dual/multi processor bug:
most of my plugins were built using v1.017 of synthedit. plugins made using pre v1.1 of SynthEdit can sometimes have trouble loading 'more than one instance of the same plugin' on some dualcore/multicore processors.
this only affects certain hosts,namely ones which utilise dual/multi processors.eg.cubase.i use energyXT which at the moment is only a single processor host,which seems to prevent this problem.
a work-around is to copy and rename each plugin eg. 'plugin1.dll','plugin2.dll','plugin3.dll' for as many instances as you need.

these plugins are supplied 'as is' and i give no guarantee of support or updates.while every effort was made to ensure these plugins work as they should,
i can't guarantee they will work on every machine/host combo.so please use at your own risk.i am not responsible for any damages to you,your computer or your pets.

thanks to all the developers,many who share there work for free,or at very reasonable prices,allowing the likes of me to invent these mad machines.
