MOD Devices has launched a new plugin marketplace inside its platform. In addition to hundreds of free plugins, MOD Duo users will now have access to paid plugins from renowned audio developers.
Launching on 28th May, MOD Devices’ commercial Gear Shop will focus on three long-term supporters: plugin maker OverTone DSP, Max for Live virtuoso K-Devices, and the Dutch sound designer Nino de Wit, aka Shiro Plugins.
Carefully selected new plugins by these developers and many others will be added on a monthly base.
Audio champion OverTone DSP is bringing his already famous Guitar Pack to the MOD Duo with analog gear emulations for hardcore audiophile guitarists. The Guitar Pack contains a distortion (DT-1), phaser (PH-1), chorus (CR-1) and wah (WAH-1) pedal.
With over 8 years of experience developing Max for Live devices, Alessio Santini, aka K-Devices, has designed a couple of advanced plugins exclusively for the MOD Duo. WOV (pictured), the first release, is a tremolo with unique features that can even be used as a wave generator and a modulator. A delay with a similar creative approach is also on the pipeline.
Shiro Plugins is providing a Pro version of the highly-praised Shiroverb shimmer reverb. The Shiroverb MkII has improved features such as stereo inputs, tone control interaction with shimmer and non-shimmer, crossfade between early reflections and the tail of the reverb, the ability to have a fully wet mix, and an optional pre-delay that makes more room for the dry attack. Furanja, a flanger plugin, is also in the works for a near-future release.
“Our Gear Shop was built from the ground up with the idea of making it a great platform. It enables developers from around the world to not only share their best creations, but also to monetize them,” said Alex Cunha, MOD Devices’ CTO.
“Publishing commercial plugins represented a technical challenge and required a new take on security and tooling. With this release, we bring a new and improved sonic experience to our user base.”
The commercial Gear Shop was a long-time goal for MOD Devices. Creating a plugin marketplace will not only expand the already large group of talented community developers, but also allow for partnerships with established software brands.
