Open source Gross Beat alternative

Postby Basslint » Mon Mar 25, 2019 9:34 am

The Gross Beat plugin for FL Studio is used on a lot of tracks. Is there a LV2 plugin that can act as a drop-in Gross Beat replacement?

I know Paulstretch can do many of the same things but I don't know if it can be considered a replacement. Can you even use it as a LV2 plugin?

I've never heard of it, so that makes it hard to suggest an alternative without further description :D

So it's a timestretcher/pitchshifter? What are the main features you are looking for?

I don't use FL Studio, I opened this thread only because there are many producers who use it and maybe they'd like to switch to free software.

It's a time and volume shifter which can be automated and ships with many presets that help achieve a particular sounds (such as the typical muffled/gated half-time sections you can hear in trap songs).

Maybe a combination of the ArtyFX suite from OpenAV software.

The closest thing I can think of is reaper's automation items.

I've been wanting a Gross Beat clone for a very good while now. I'm a fan of that plugin.

I *think* I could hack together a Gross Beat alternative real quick. It would use Wolf Shaper's graph, which is based on the ones in FL Studio. I'll keep you informed.

Yeh that sounds cool! I use Grossbeat sometimes and it's always on my mind as something I'll miss if I use only Linux native software.
