Flintpope Releases Palette, Free VST & AU Pads Plugin Instrument

So you want a plugin that's good for producing rich, evolving pads? But you'd rather not spend a dime (or perhaps you'll donate a little)? Flintpope's new Palette could be exactly what you need.  

Imagine having a paintbox of sounds in a simple VST /AU plugin interface ideal for creating and playing rich, evolving pads. Sounds nice doesn't it? It gets even better when you find out this new instrument, Palette from Flintpope, is being offered to everyone for free.

If you feel kind enough you can tip the man behind this plugin by using the donate button of course.

Here's the details according to Flintpope:

Palette is a VST for creating and playing rich, evolving pads.

Inspired by the look of a paintbox there are eight coloured rectangles. Each one is a trigger for a sample. The colour changes to red to let you know which ones are in use.There are eight Flintpope samples, all chosen for sonic richness, depth and atmosphere. Any one sample on its own is a fine pad, but you can go on to mix different combinations of sounds to create up to 64 different variations.


Each pad has a dedicated Gain and Pan dial.

Master controls are Attack, Release and Master Volume. There is an LFO with separate controls for Rate, Depth, Waveform, Destination and Source (try Expression as a Destination for peculiar results). There is a three-option Voice Mode with a Glide dial for mono and legato settings. There is a two-option Filter with Cutoff dial. Finally there are three FX: Vinyl, Reverb and Pitch-shift.

The download zip contains separate versions depending on which system you use. Just use the right one!

This is a FREE instrument but you may consider offering a donation towards the cost of making it by NOT putting a zero in the price box.

OR, you could consider a regular small donation for as little as a dollar a month by visiting https://www.patreon.com/flintpope
