Free Software Friday is our regular Friday feature here at the dBs blog. We dig the depths of the music production and media webosphere and discover what downloadable plugin freebies are worth double clicking each week.
Bedroom Producers Blog has long been a hallowed site for free software, but they also put out some great free plugins themselves, and for Black Friday 2021 they released the new BPB Dirty Spring reverb, which comes with a built-in bitcrusher.
Now, we know that free plugins and especially free reverbs are by no means hard to come by - fortunately BPB knows that too. What you get here is a clean and simple 5-knob UI, controlling the Pre signal, decay, tone, mix and most importantly dirt.
Dirt is the 'secret sauce' according to BPB, and this is where you can dial in the bitcrusher to really create some interesting reverb tones. As the developers themselves say, it's not for everyone, but is a really fun divergence from regular reverbs.
There's also the real handy 'kick' button, which allows you to preview your reverb sound by simulating the spring delay being kicked/hit.
BPB Dirty Spring is available for Windows and macOS and can be downloaded for free using the link below.
