Klanghelm has released IVGI – a free saturation and distortion effect for Mac & Windows.
Here’s what they have to say about the free effect plugin:
IVGI can deliver very soft and subtle saturation, that feels at home on the master buss. It is equally capable of very dense and dirty distortion effects to spice up single tracks.
IVGI’s base sound is comparable to the DESK mode in the upcoming big brother SDRR.
Just as SDRR, IVGI reacts dynamically to the input signal. Even the modelled fluctuations react dynamically and also change depending on the drive setting, so that it doesn’t get in the way of the SOUND. Stereo tracks benefit from it’s modelled crosstalk behaviour. Just as its big brother SDRR, IVGI features a “Controlled Randomness”, which determines the internal drift and variance inside the unit. It contributes to the livelyness and realness of IVGI’s saturation character. All internal processes are modulated to some extent to make this possible.
IVGI gives you a sensible amount of controls to manipulate the character of the saturation itself. It offers a unique ASYM MIX knob to alter the symmetry of the signal without affecting the harmonic content much. Usually, asymmetry leads to an increase of even order harmonics. But in IVGI’s case, dialing in the asymmetry makes the negative part of the signal “cleaner”. This way you can preserve the dynamic structrure of the source better and get a more transparent result. Actually, you can think of ASYM MIX as a transparency control.
IVGI also lets you alter the frequency dependency of the saturation with the RESPONSE control.
It’s a free download at the Klanghelm site.
If you’ve used IVGI, let us know what you think of it!

When someone writes an piece of writing he/she keeps the idea of a user
in his/her brain that how a user can be aware of it.
Thus that’s why this article is amazing. Thanks!
I all the time used to study piece of writing in news
papers but now as I am a user of web thus from now I am using net for posts, thanks to web.
Hi my family member! I wish to say that this article is awesome, great written and come
with almost all important infos. I would like to see extra posts like this .
