Seven Phases Spectrum Analyzer is a real-time spectrum analysis VST plugin. The idea was to create an old-fashioned tool reminiscent of classic hardware analyzers of the earlier centuries. Another unique (and quite experimental) feature of the plugin is its detached spectrum display window, freely resizable independently of host application capabilities.
MultiInspector Free Multitrack Real-Time Spectrum Analyzer is a 31 band spectral analyzer with multitrack functionality. It incorporates a standard third octave frequency analyzer. Center frequencies of the bands are based on the ISO 266 :1997 standard (20 Hz to 20 kHz). Pink noise will appear flat in the frequency spectrum. MultiInspectorFree supports up to 4 instances at a sample rate of 44.1 kHz.

e-Phonic Retro Delay
Retro Delay is a flexible allround delay effect in VST format. It has the character and sound of a vintage delay unit but features many modern options. Besides delays, it can produce a wide range of modulation, chorus, flanger and phaser effects.
Big Tick Dual Delay
Another incredible free plugin, maybe the ultimate stereo delay out there. Powerful and easy to use, its main features are:
- 2 independant left/right delays with delay and feedback controls
- Lowpass (-24 dB/Oct) resonant filter
- Delay times can be expressed in ms or in 16th notes (when synced to the host tempo)
- Group mode for ping-pong delay effects
Aftershock Digital Delay
The Aftershock digital delay can hold a delay for up to 6 seconds at a sample rate of 44100. It features 3 independent delays, one left, right and center. Each of these delays have a separate Feedback level, volume level and selectable delay type. You can select from Tap Delay, Host tempo Delay and standard delay.
Twin Delay VST
Twin Delay is a VST plugin designed for emulation of digital and analogue delay effects. The program is not an exact copy of already existing hardware-based equipment, nevertheless it can be used for producing a majority of popular effects, as well as some modulation and ‘unusual’ effects, for instance Flanger, Metallizer. Special attention have been given to analogue delay algorithms, that make it possible to create beautiful and original sounds, frequently used in such genres as IDM , Experimental, Breaks and especially Dub, as well as genres that use Dub elements: Dub techno, Dubstep, Dubwise and so on.

One of the most interesting EQs seen lately, ThrillerEQ.
The developer is at his first plugin but he’s on good way. If his first plugin is THAT effective, I look forward to see next ones
Already at the version 1.2, ThrillerEQ is a versatile, fully automation capable eq modeled after the GREAT RIVER / HARRISON 32 EQ 4 -Band Equalizer. These equalizers were used in Harrison 32 Consoles.
- 3 Peak EQ-bands with Gain and Frequency controls (Low, Low-Mid, Hi-Mid)
- Hi Shelf Band
- High- and Low-pass filters with sweepable frequency
- 7 internal presets : Acoustic Guitar, Electric Guitar, Kick Drum, Snare Drum, Overheads, Mastering, Subtle Brightness
It’s not an exact copy of the actual gear (Peak band curves are a bit different, some switches had been removed), but besides of these minor changes almost all parameters of the plugin are the same.

Bad news and good news… well, it’s more just of a bad news with a hint of hope… well, not really hope but more like a solution of half of the problem…
So, Kjaerhus Audio no longer exist as a software company.
Their commercial plugins can not be found and registered anymore and their website is gone.
Still, their most famous plugins, the “Classic” series which were some of the first free plugins and probably some of the best (presented them on the first page of this thread, I think) can be found on Acoustica website.
The “Kjaerhus Classic Series” is bundled in Mixcraft 3 but is offered as a free download also separately HERE
I hope one day Kjaerhus Audio will be back… or at least the guy behind this small company it’s ok…
Looks like a lot of software developers want to help us, the independent musicians, and offer quite a lot of useful software for free.

CamelCrusher is a free ‘colouring’ multi-effect plugin. It offers two characteristically different distortion sounds which can be blended together to create a wide variety of tones and textures. Great for guitars, drums and plenty more!
There’s also a warm, smooth analogue-style low-pass filter with buckets of resonance. Assign a MIDI controller and start tweaking!
Finally, let’s not forget the easiest-to-use compressor you’ll find anywhere. It can ‘phatten’ up your sound as quickly as you can turn up the ‘Amount’ knob!
