These 3 great VST plugins will boost your sonic arsenal into the stratosphere with their sonic power. All three Minimal System Instruments reverb VST plugins have proven to be extremely popular over the last 12 months. This is a great opportunity to really grab yourself a great deal.
Airwalker is a beautiful sounding analogue modelled reverb based on hand built classic processors. Sometimes with audio VST plugins less is most definately more, you dont want to get bogged down with endless amounts of controls and spend all of your time experimenting and not actually creating the sounds you need. Our Airwalker Analogue Modelled Reverb addresses this issue by only having the essential controls at your fingertips.
Airwalker is a high quality reverb VST plugin with a fantastic analogue sound. This sound can be shaped further using the EQ module which was added in version 2 of the plugin.
Airwalker really shines due to its ease, and the speed in which fantastic sounds can be created. If you are looking for a high quality ‘work horse’ reverb give Airwalker a try.
ModVerb is a reverb VST plugin packed with unique features. Modelled on analogue technology the plugin also sounds as good as it looks. Featuring four distinct sections (including – main reverb section, modulation section, delay section, and master section) the sounds that can be created with this processor are immense and endless. Tired of your boring old reverb sound? why not add some subtle modulation, or a nice synced delay. Do you want your reverb to only affect selected certain frequencies? not a problem, just use the ‘Low’ and ‘High’ controls and you are all set. ModVerb contains everything you need to create stunning reverbs.
Reverb is one of the most commonly used effects in music production and every producer should have an array of various reverb effects at their disposal. Developed over the last 9 months Nebula is a true labour of love for Minimal System Instruments and we are confident this is reflected in the quality of the VST plugin both in terms of sound and control and also visually. Nebula can be used to create standard reverb effects but it really excels when used to create stunning atmospheric sounds from something as simple as a single drum hit. When used with more complex loops and sounds the possibilities are endless.
Minimal System Instruments are proud to announce the new DreamScape Reverb VST plugin due for release in the latter part of January 2013.
This plugin has been in development for nearly 2 years and is a labour of love for Minimal System instruments Founder Paul Willocks. DreamScape is a complex reverb VST and filter effect plugin designed for anything from subtle effects to extreme modulated and filtered reverbs.
DreamScape contains some controls and parameters that will be familiar to users of reverb plugins from other developers, yet there are some controls that you will not have seen before such as the Amplitude Curves and Reverb Start/End. The amplitude curves let you really get deep into designing custom reverb sounds meaning your creativity is your only limitation. The Reverb Start/End controls are similar in some ways to controls you would find on a sampler. They allow you to determine at which point the reverb begins to sound, and then you can set the end point if you dont want the reverb to tail off. This can give you really nice snappy reverbs for percussion and drums.

LuSH-101 from D16 Instruments – Review
We love to produce plugins here at Minimal System Instruments and we understand the hard work and dedication it takes to be successful. Because of this we have a lot of appreciation for our fellow developers. This new series of plugin reviews is our way of showing our appreciation to the developers that we love here at MSI.
When the D16 Group first announced this plugin I remember feeling very happy. The SH-101 is a classic hardware synth and up until now nobody has yet managed to create a convincing soft synth version.
When I got the beta I remember being impressed with the gorgeous GUI and very easy to use interface. First impressions were that this was a fantastic synth. As much as I love producing electronic music, without good raw synth sounds a plugin wont really hold my interest. I love raw electronic sounds and synths like Lush get right back to the basics. They make you appreciate the characteristic differences between Square, Sine, Triangle, and Saw waveforms. Too many soft-synths sound dull, flat, lifeless, and sterile, until you engage at least the filters. Not so with the some of the best on the market, Largo, Diva and LuSH-101 have some of the best sounding raw oscillators around.
Changing a filter on a synth should change the character of the sound in a musical manner, on many plugins the filters seem to merely change the timbre, not so with LuSH-101. LuSH-101 is a synth which yields real changes with every tweak. There are so many great sounds to be found just by randomly modifying the controls. This is what you want from a synth as it invites creativity.
Staying on the subject of the filter(s) on the LuSH-101, there are two models here (Normal and SH-101), each with LP, HP, and BP modes. The SH-101 of course being the model of the Roland filter which sounds a lot rougher and less even. To get LuSH-101 sounding faithful to the original SH-101 there are some important hidden features in options which you should know about including sound quality and envelope behavior, which by default is not set up. Make sure to change that if you are looking for absolute faithfulness.
Speaking of faithfulness, the LuSH-101 can sound exactly like the original SH-101. If this is what you want it to to then that is great but you should realise that this synth has so much more to it than simply emulating a classic. Where LuSH-101 really excels is when you begin experimenting with its layer function, effects, mixer, polyphony, unison and so on. The effects are top notch by the way, above what most other synths out there are capable of which is great for patch design. The 8 layers can hold any preset timbre you make and combine them in the mixer (featuring EQ, FX sends and a compressor with adjustable ratio). Everything is so well implemented and really does add value to this synth.
I won’t run through every feature, almost everything is accessible from the front panel and one glance at the GUI will inform you the synths potential, but I will mention it has a great supersaw emulation, a hidden sync oscillator, and a great unison mode.
You get the feeling D16 really took their time with this synth (three years I think) because the whole thing feels solid with clever features throughout. As you can tell I really like LuSH-101. There are some drawbacks however. There is no mod matrix, (which for me is actually a nice change as it forces me to be more creative with the basics) and it can get quite heavy on CPU draw with effects and unison enabled.
I think LuSH-101 is a great all-rounder and really excels at pads, plucks, keys and interesting analog style sounds. It is one of our go-to synths in the Minimal System Instruments studio and we would thoroughly recommend it to anyone who is serious about producing electronic music.
