Spectral Lemuring, a lo-fi spectral processing/pitch-shifting effect, has been released (Windows 64, VST3, free/donationware). You can hear an audio demo and download it at its dedicated page here.
If you remember Spectral Monkeyage, it’s kinda like that, and (as the name implies) is created as a sort of nod in the direction of that “classic” plugin from Shiny FX. It isn’t meant to be a direct remake or anything, but uses some similar concepts, and may fill a similar niche in one’s arsenal. Note that I have no affiliation with Shiny FX (the developer of Spectral Monkeyage), and this is only inspired by the namesake.

Spectral Lemuring is, as the name implies, a spectral processing effect which is inspired by a discontinued freeware plugin with a similar name. The feature set isn’t exactly the same, but like the plugin that inspired it, it can process the high-magnitude and low-magnitude parts of the FFT signal separately, and can also “freeze” the signal.
Among the ways it differs from its inspiration are the separate pitch shifting for high and low-magnitude signals, and a resynthesis section (another way of “rebuilding” the FFT signal) which can be mixed with the iFFT output. The split point for the high and low-magnitude signals can also be modulated.
This plugin is mostly finished, though I will probably be adding preset management as present in other recent FSA plugs, fixing some graphical stuff, etc. Patreon supporters get access to a preview version, available from the FSA Patreon page.
FourHead was developed for the 2021 KVR Developer Challenge, which is currently in the voting stage. It isn’t really a delay or granulator, though it lives in that realm. It’s based on an audio buffer which constantly records the input in chunks. This buffer is then read by four “play heads” which play it back as looped segments.
More info can be found on the VST page or the product page at KVR, where it can also be downloaded.
You must be a member of the KVR forums to vote, but anyone can download the entries.
Got back to messing around in SynthEdit again after several years, and here’s the first finished result. Spectral Destroyer is an audio-mangling/FSU plugin that uses spectral processing to do pitch and feedback-based effects. Audio demos and the plugin package itself can be downloaded from the Free VST page.
This plugin is released as freeware, but a donation would be much appreciated if you like it (link to upper right of this page).
