Super Destroy FX Handies!

DFX Extras

Hi. This web page has more stuff by Sophia and Tom 7. This stuff is not at our main web page because it is not as exciting as that stuff. We like to keep this stuff a little more tucked away because it's not our really good work. Here you'll find Audio Units and VST plugins that are handy audio utilities or creative curiosities.

These plugins are free for you and your friends to use. You can use them for whatever you like, but we'd appreciate it if you:

More information and better plugins are available at our main page.

RMS Buddy

AU: Version 1.1.5 - 7 Dec 2007 VST: Version 1.1 - 25 Feb 2003 RMS Buddy is a handy tool for tracking RMS and peak volume information. It provides a cumulative, running average RMS of the audio signal, momentary RMS values, and it keeps track of the peak volume levels. I find it very useful when I'm mastering stuff.

Monomaker

Version 1.0.1 - 1 Jan 2002 Monomaker is a simple mono-merging and stereo-recentering utility. You can use it to progressively mix down a stereo signal to mono and you can use it for equal power, center-shifting pans.

MIDI Gater

Version 1.0 - 19 Nov 2001 MIDI Gater is a simple, handy, MIDI-controlled gate. When you play a MIDI note, audio turns on. When you release the note, audio turns off.

MIDI Gater is a little unusual, though, because it is "polyphonic". What that means is that a copy of the audio signal is created for every MIDI note, and the volume of each copy is sensitive to note velocity. The level of sensitivity is adjustable. A minimum volume floor is also adjustable, in case you don't want your audio signal turning off completely.

EQ Sync

Version 1.0.1 - 2 May 2002 EQ Sync is a ridiculous equalizer. You have no control over the EQ curve, if you try to adjust the faders they will escape, and the EQ parameters don't make any sense anyway. The EQ setting changes on its own according to your song's tempo.

Polarizer

Version 1.0.1 - 5 Aug 2002 Polarizer takes every nth sample and polarizes it. The number of samples skipped and the strength of the polarization are adjustable. You can also implode your sound.

fake app

fake app icon
Version 0.0.5 - 26 Sep 2020 Audio Units and their preset files and don't have any nice icon, and moreover they look like blank documents or folders in most cases. If you want them to have icons, you can download this fake app and put it somewhere on your hard disk. Note that this app is totally fake (it won't run if you double click it or anything). All it does is get noticed by the operating system and provide icons that are associated with the AU and preset file types.

Freeverb

Version 1.0.6 - 14 Nov 2016 This is not a Destroy FX plugin. Freeverb is a public domain reverb algorithm by Jezar at Dreampoint. Many VST ports of it exist, but there had not been an AU yet, so Sophia ported it to Audio Unit, and made some improvements too. This AU version has no custom graphics, but Jezar's VST version never did, either.
