For his new free plugin TugMultiEffect he stays true to the effects—this time, however, in modular.



TugMultiEffect is a new modular multi-effects plugin for macOS and Windows. Modular here means connecting the individual effect modules like in a modular synthesizer. So you can create custom effect signal paths.  The routing system is flexible and easy to use, allowing users to drag and drop connections between the different effects boxes says the developer. 

The plugin offers 11 effects, including:

  • reverb
  • delay
  • chorus
  • decimator
  • distortion
  • phaser
  • pitch shifter
  • comb filter
  • vibrato
  • tremolo
  • filter (Moog-style ladder filter with self-resonance)

Each effect has a variety of parameters with which you can adjust them in detail. For example, the filter has different types, pan, cutoff, and resonance controls, and a built-in LFO with mod destinations.  Each module also has a randomizer, giving you instant new parameter settings.
