Many musicians have a limited budget to buy new instruments or effects. Above all, many of them use their budget to buy hardware and less software. Good sounding plugins can be expensive but there are several that cost you nothing. This time, I check out for you the best free tremolo plugins for PC & Mac!
I consider only free chorus plugins that are:
- for PC & Mac at the same time
- free for everyone
- no time restriction
- 64-bit compatible
Pecheneg Tremolo Effect
The Pecheneg VST plugin is a tremolo effect, which has the possibility to adjust the shape of the tremolo modulating curve and to synchronize the frequency with a host, or set it manually. When synchronizing with a host (Tempo: host), the tremolo frequency is adjusted by the knob, which sets the modulation period, while the note type (regular, dotted or triplet) can be selected below the knob.
When set manually (Tempo: man), the tremolo frequency (in Hz) can be set directly with the knob. The Shape, Phase and Symm knobs set the waveform of the modulation, with the amount of modulation set by the Depth knob.
