Having been sheltered in DirectX plug-in land for the last few years, I have been denying myself a huge VST sub-culture. On my way to discovering just how deep this world is I found a killer 70’s style clavinet plugin called TickyClav from Big Tick Audio Software.
This is one I really wish I would have known about when I did Cool As I Get. For that one I used a clavinet SoundFont that (presumably) uses recorded snippets of an actual clavinet. I don’t know if this plugin is pure oscillator-based but it sounds much better than my SoundFont. This could speak volumes about how far sound design has come.
And it’s free. ([UPDATE:] well, donate-ware)
