Vote, donate and get dozens of great plug-ins for free.
The deadline for entries to the KVR Developer Challenge 2012, the fourth free-for-all audio plug-in / audio application / soundware design event, has passed and we are now in the free download, vote and donate phase of the event - the best bit!
There are 55 entries - the best turnout yet! 49 run on Windows, 7 on Mac OS X and 6 are Soundware for other products. Thank you and good luck to all the developers who have submitted an entry.
Please download and try as many entries as possible before voting and please spread the word - Tweet, Facebook, Blog, Email, - annoy everyone you know so they don't miss out (don't forget grandma, grandpa and little cousin Jimmy ;))!
Thanks to everyone who's donated to the DC fund so far (which is currently $1140!). If you haven't yet donated and have a few pennies jangling about in your PayPal account that you want to get rid of, you can do so on the KVR DC 12 page.
KVR Audio is the go-to place for information and news on open source audio plug-ins and the quality of the shortlisted entries is always high.
The last DC, held in 2009, included classic pieces of freeware including the tape dynamics simulator FerricTDS, convolution reverb VST HybridReverb2 and FM synthesizer FMMF.
This year is the biggest event yet. In years gone by, the Challenge has featured around 40 plug-ins to choose from. DC 12 has a massive 55 new plug-ins for you to get stuck into.
The DC is a great example of the sense of community in the audio plug-in world. I highly recommend getting involved in any way you can - by promoting the Challenge, voting, donating to the prize money, or all three. As a final reason to get involved (as if you need one):
...if you enter, donate or vote you'll be in with a chance to win one or more of the extra prizes from the KVR DC sponors...
Head over to KVR now and get involved.
