    In this week's Friday Free Plug-in, we are featuring JP-ME-1 From Ben Schulz which emulates a famous 1980s digital reverb made by a well known Japanese manufacturer.

  • Friday Free Plug-in - Blindfold EQ From Audiothing
    Blindfold EQ is an EQ which forces you to use your ears. The controls are all labelled but don’t have any markings on their scales. No frequency markings so you have to find the right frequency using the only sense which matters - I don’t have to say which one that is do I?
