HY-Plugins HY-ESG is a free trance gate effect plugin that features a euclidean sequencer, an ADSR envelope, and three modulation units.
Did I already say that we are in a high season of high-quality free plugins? If not, you know now and there is yet another great free plugin you should not miss.
Tomislav from the super informative Bedroom Producers Blog has teamed up with HY-Plugins to release a new plugin.
Tadashi Suginomori (HY-Plugins) is known to some for its exciting sequencer plugins that offer a lot. His talent for sequencers can also be seen here. HY-ESG is a free gate sequencer aka trance gate effect plugin with an interesting twist. Instead of a standard step sequencer, he uses a Euclidean sequencer that controls the gate effect and enables new advanced gating effects. You can find this section on the left with a wide range of different parameters.
You can set the number of steps, pulses, sequence duration as well as the direction (rotating, random, or restart at any step). Then, you have an ADSR envelope onboard that controls the volume. Here you adjust the shape of the triggered steps with the classic ADSR controls. On the right, you can change the output gain and adjust the mix knob.
It gets more exciting and wilder in the modulation section. The plugin features three modulation units that can either be an LFO or a sample & hold. With these, you can modulate the ADSR envelope, the sequencer controls, and more. If you modulate the sequencer parameters here, you quickly drift into very complex, experimental gate patterns with which you can achieve very creative results. HY-ESG can do more than just crazy things. It also masters classic trance gate effects.
An excellent free plugin. Thanks, Tomislav of BPB and HY Plugins for this gift.
