This Week in Plugins
Oh, Look at That: Cesium
In the world of VST plugins, the interface can often hint at the quality of the mess that lies beneath. So, when I stumbled upon the Cesium plugin by Green Oak Software, the swanky, steampunk design had me raising a skeptical eyebrow, anticipating some sort of disappointment behind the pretty facade.
After all, we’ve seen it time and again: a gleaming interface is no guarantee of aural bliss. In this case, an interface generated by AI, no less. The nagging voice in my head couldn’t help but question if this oh-so-dashing plugin would live up to its promises of sonic depth, or if it would crumble under the weight of its AI’s aesthetic ambition.
Lo and behold, Cesium exceeded my expectations, proving itself more than another flashy dud in the plugin world. I mean, who would have thought that a chorus effect plugin could be a tour de force? It shines when applied to synths and leads. And with its lush depth and fluid motion, Cesium demonstrates that sometimes, just sometimes, you can have your cake and eat it too. Download Cesium here.
Lo-fi Samples With Vibe
Zumzet Lite is a Lo-fi sample-based virtual instrument. Includes 23 presets such as keys, pads, synths & leads. The samples invoke a sense of serenity and excel at their purpose. The download process is slightly annoying- it’s through Gumroad. But you’ll find the presets well worth it! Check out the Lo-fi instrument here.
