CatchDad free buffer-synth by Noisebud

CatchDad is a free buffer synth VST plugin developed by Noisebud. Compatible OS(s): Windows.

CatchDad is the second Noisebud plug-in created strictly for live situations. With CatchDad you can catch 4 different sounds with just the click of a button and instantly start to program rhythms with the built in step sequencers.

Put it on a channel (or return track) in Ableton Live (or any other VST host that send time signals). Activate live monitoring if you like to record live sounds or run a loop trough CatchDad and start programming beats on the fly, or you could use loops as sound banks to change sound as you go or catch a live drummer and start to rearrange what he’s playing in real time or just add hits here and there.

Other features:

  • Shuffle.
  • Adjustable sequencer length (you can create isorhythmic patterns).
  • ‘Free’ or ‘host’ tempo modes.
  • Auto record. CatchDad can be set to record automatically.
  • Pitch can be set to either 12 tone equal temperament or free.
  • There are 128 user presets accessible by MIDI program change. If a user preset is changed it is saved with the song/project. Up to 128 presets with the project, so there is no need for a store button. Really handy in Ableton Live, just create a MIDI clip with the program change and the pattern will load immediately when the clip is launched.

Buffer Synth Alpha

Buffer Synth Alpha free buffer-synth by ndc Plugs

Buffer Synth Alpha is a free buffer synth VST plugin developed by ndc Plugs. Compatible OS(s): Windows 64b, macOS.

Buffer Synth Alpha is a lo-fi performance effect. It reads the audio input into a buffer, and when it receives a MIDI note, plays back the contents of the buffer at the pitch of the note. Checking the Freeze Buffer parameter will stop the plugin reading audio into its buffer while the MIDI note is held, giving the familiar ‘stuck buffer’ effect.

Note that this is not an ‘alpha-version’ but a finished plugin.

Buffer Synth 2

Buffer Synth 2 free buffer-synth by ndc Plugs

Buffer Synth 2 is a free buffer synth VST plugin developed by ndc Plugs. Compatible OS(s): Windows, macOS.

Buffer Synth 2 is a buffer manipulation plugin, designed to do a number of different things with audio buffers. It could be thought of as a cross between GRM Tools’ Freeze and a wavetable synthesizer, in the way it can be used as either an effect-type plugin, or as an instrument in its own right. To get the most out of it, you’ll need a relatively flexible plugin host – most importantly, one which will allow you to send MIDI data to effects plugins.


  • 2 separate buffers (88200 samples in size) – can record the incoming audio stream or WAV files can be loaded.
  • Amp and Mod ADSRs.
  • 2 LFOs.
  • LP/BP/HP resonant filter.
  • MIDI Learn.
  • Synth Mode.
