BeatBurner software synth

Legacy audio software designed by Lee Stacey and associates at CodeAudio including BeatBurner, Width, Edge, and WrongMod. Download Free VST & VSTi plugins here.

Back in days of yore, I used to create audio applications and software plugins for digital audio workstations (DAWs). Most of them probably don’t work anymore but if you fancy giving them a try, here they are.

WrongMod 1.0 VST

CodeAudio WrongMod combines RM (ring modulation), FM (frequency modulation) and a kind of peak-following FM. It’s one of those audio plugins that is clearly just for teh lulz.

WTF – distortion VST

WTF by CodeAudio is a sound mangler that is a little left of the middle. Delay, chorus, flanger, pitcher, harmonic shifter, reverser and sonic assault barrage all in one pocket-sized pouch.

Made with Synthedit, it comprises some of the latest modular technology by Pilchard, Jeff Mc Clintock, Chris Kerry and David Haupt.

EDGE – subharmonic synthesiser VST

EDGE by CodeAudio is a subharmonic synth. Unlike most bass enhancers, it doesn’t just boost the bass or shape the lower frequencies; EDGE takes the input signal and creates a bass signal one (or even two, if you like) octaves lower than the original.

Width – stereo image modifier VST

Width by CodeAudio is a simple but effective tool for widening (or narrowing) a stereo image.

On top of the stereo widening, it has a built-in high-frequency stimulator. Width will not magically turn mono sources into stereo audio, it will only enhance existing stereo images. It is based on an algorithm that does not use any delay but removes material that is common to the left and right channels.

GIDE – plucked string simulator VST

Utilising waveguide technology based on delay algorithms by Chris Kerry, GIDE by CodeAudio is overflowing with resonance, brightness, and presence (well, we think so anyway but don’t take our word for it!).

If the sound of the waveguide alone isn’t enough for you, GIDE also features a state variable filter and stereo chorus. All parameters can be automated using either VST or MIDI automation.

Squeekbox 2.0 – monosynth VSTi

Squeekbox 2 by CodeAudio is a TB *cough* style monosynth that has the usual semi-fixed envelopes and glide etc plus Detune and filter intensity controls. Like the original, it is made with Synthedit but unlike the original, it doesn’t look like an arse.

CodeAudio BeatBurner – Software Synth VSTi

The BeatBurner software synth takes beats and turns them into synths using some kind of secret waveshaping magic.

BeatBurner is built for 32bit Windows and won’t work on any other operating systems. It almost certainly won’t work on most of today’s DAWs.

You can download BeatBurner but it won’t work. In case you do download it, you’ll need the unlock code.
