Create Glittering Intergalactic Music with these AWESOME Free Plugins
With lush otherworldly delays, binaural panning and more, these plugins will make your music sound like it came from outer space!
Turn a single note into a lush cloud from outer space
Valhalla Supermassive is a free plugin for massive reverbs and lush delays; and is a tool that can turn the most tinny sound into a glistening cloud from outer space.
This plugin will instantaneously add more emotion to your music; and another dimension entirely to your sound design. Supermassive also comes with a huge bank of presets ( I would highly recommend Planetarium, ForeverVerb or SpaceVerb1999)
With We Are Stardust you can also turn your voice into a pad - or turn a single note into a cushion of sound travelling through the cosmos ( you could create an entire meditation soundscape with just a few notes using this plugin)
There are also some great rhythmic capabilities within this plugin that would bring instant groove to your instrumental elements and vocals. If you feel like your music is missing something; then Valhalla’s Supermassive may very well fix it.
Spaceship Delay will make your music sound like a summer’s day in another galaxy
Created by Musical Entropy - Spaceship Delay is a delay plugin ( combining both modern and vintage delays); that can also be used for saturation, doubling and modulation.
This is a highly versatile tool that can do a lot; and can help cut down on processing power when working on a mix. This sounds divine on Rhodes and on guitars; adding a vintage sounding chorus effect that is similar to the delicious warmth present in both Kaytranada and Anderson Paak’s music; making your music sound like a summer’s day in outer space.
Auburn Sounds Panagement 2
Panagement 2 is a plugin by Auburn Sounds, and is a spatialization laboratory that gives you raw power over your stereo tracks. This plugin is free; but the delay and the PGEM T-400 mod chip come with the full version which can be purchased for €24.65.
The user interface makes you feel like you are at the controls of a spaceship; the plugin itself by turning your music into a transformative experience from another realm.
There is so much that can be done with this plugin; the reverb comes with a variety of wall materials ( wood, concert, dark, heaven and cave), modulation, panning, binaural delay, LFO (with a huge variety of time signatures) and more. Panagement 2 has an awesome pumping/stuttering side-chain effect ( try out the preset Vocal’s Goa Gate vocals or melody as a starting effect)
The Great Escape
This is a dynamic tremolo plugin ( made in collaboration with French company Thrilltone) and is a preview of an upcoming commercial product currently in development. This plugin can make anything sound like bleeps and bloops from outer space; be it the inner workings of a spaceship or a robot communicating; needless to say, this will provide hours of fun.
Blue Cat’s Chorus
A free plugin from BlueCat audio - this plugin will make anything sound gorgeous. It also comes with a list of very solid presets ( Clean Chorus and Twelve Strings sound divine on electric piano)
Blue Cat’s Chorus will turn any instrument or vocal into a dreamy, otherworldly experience.
