J1000 Free VST Plugins


Parametric mixing equalizer based on MQ57. Most of the functions are the same, except that MQ55 operates only in stereo mode, has more flexible pass filters and has gain ratio that acts like dry/wet control. This is my go-to EQ for music production.


Parametric equalizer designed for mastering. MQ57 has all controls and functions optimized for mastering needs, i.e., it has relatively wide Q factors that focus on overall balance rather than narrow cuts and boosts, moderate gain ranges for fine-tuning and functions such as channel balance, spectrum tilting and precise pass filters.


Mixing equalizer loosely based on Portico 5033 hardware unit. The goal was to create effective plugin that won't distract with flashy graphics and animations, that will disregard exact numerical values and place focus on the sound and finally, prioritize user-friendliness over complexity. Try it and see if this approach makes equalization easier for you.


Simple hybrid equalizer/exciter. Using it properly you'll be able to accent instrument's character making it more prominent in the mix. Sound gets harmonically enhanced mostly with 2nd and 3rd harmonic, but if you push it past moderate drive levels it gets much brighter - experiment and find the best way to utilize it.


Three-band stereo processor that separates audio into low, mid and high frequencies and lets you manipulate their stereo properties - width and panning or rotation. Crossover points are easily adjusted with single knob. It has simple meters for each range showing correlation or panning. High-pass filter cuts unwanted frequencies on side channel for more stable bass.

Music Computing: Modulas™ PRIME and Consoles


AUSTIN, Texas, July 23, 2013 – Music Computing, a leader in touch technologies and advanced computer enhanced musical instruments releases Modulas PRIME and Modulas Consoles.

MotionCOMMAND™ Modulas is a system of touchscreens and other controls capable of controlling any music production or video editing software.

Modulas PRIME is a standalone 32” or 42” touchscreen controller that is designed to be used as an add-on to any desk or console. Simply place the Modulas PRIME on a flat surface, plug in the USB and video cables, run the driver software and it’s ready for use. Standard number of simultaneous touch points is two or four but custom versions up to 40 touch points are available.

Modulas Consoles are turnkey professional consoles designed to be the center piece of any studio. The following are the three models available: (1) Modulas Mix / DAW Console, (2) Modulas 42” Keyboard Workstation Console, and (3) Modulas 32” Keyboard Workstation Console.

The Modulas Mix / DAW Console is a traditional mixing console, which provides a center bay for a mixer or a Modulas Main Module (32” or 42”), and two 12U bays on each side capable of housing any combination of additional Modulas modules including the Modulas 22” portrait module, multiple Modulas 10” modules or the Modulas QWERTY computer keyboard module. Two additional 4U rack bays are available on the top of each side for outboard gear.

The Modulas Keyboard Workstation Consoles have a center shelf where a Modulas PRIME can be placed as well as various other rack bays for Modulas modules. The 32” version can accommodate a 32” Modulas PRIME while the 42” version can accommodate either a 32” or 42” Modulas PRIME. Both models provide a space for placing a keyboard controller, keyboard workstation, or keyboard production station like the StudioBLADE and ControlB LADE. The space is sufficient for up to an 88-key keyboard.

“The Modulas product line is a new and prudent approach to controlling today’s audio and video production software.” Said Victor Wong, CEO, Music Computing. “By providing controls that can instantly adapt to any software application or plug-in, Modulas is the only control system that will always be 100% compatible today and in the future.”

Modulas is compatible with Windows 7 and Windows 8 and is capable of controlling all native multi-touch features within the operating systems as well as multi-touch functions in multi-touch capable software applications. Modulas is also compatible with Mac OS X 10.6 and later. However it is only single touch capable for all Mac OS X system level functions but can be multi-touch capable if the application running within Mac OS X is also multi-touch capable. A wireless keyboard and mouse is also included with the Modulas PRIME and Consoles for detailed editing and text input for applications which may not be optimized for touchscreen use.

Prices start at $2,099 and configuration engines are available in the Music Computing online store for each of the Modulas line so the perfect combination can be create for the user’s needs. http://www.musiccomputing.com/store

Modulas is compatible with Windows 7 and Windows 8 in multi-touch mode for all available system functions and if the application is multi-touch capable, Modulas will also function in multi-touch mode. However, currently Modulas is only single touch for Mac OS X system functions but if you are running multi-touch applications written for Mac OS X, Modulas will work in multi-touch mode while in those applications.
