There’s essential VST plugins that you will pull out on every track and there experimental ones that give you a very specific vibe. While I stopped hoarding plugins, a few experimental vst plugins are always good to keep in your bag of tricks!
Driftmaker is a delay disintegration device that parses incoming audio, recalls certain parts and adds analog deterioration to the signal. It was designed to encapsulate the character of BlankFor.ms’s debut on Puremagnetik – Works for Tape and Piano. All presets were developed by BlankFor.ms.
Really digging this plugin and definitely keeping it in my arsenal for the time I want a warm, messy analog canvas for my beats!
Inspired by Larum’s Into a Bright Land, Expanse is a noise and drone generator that can be spectrally blurred, pitched, and filtered. It is a simple yet versatile tool that can produce sweeping backdrops, resonating low drones and many other textural canvases.
This one reminds of the Mutable Instruments Clouds Eurorack module I used to have. I ended up selling it because I didn’t use that often, but a dope VST plugin nonetheless!
