Planet Botch has released Stomp Kings– a great collection of virtual FX pedals plugins for VST environment. There are available 5 free plugins, each one with that particular classic vintage stomp box range and feel.

Among the first batch are some offbeat and interesting units including an analogue delay, a very cool guitar amp simulator (also brilliant for bass or clonewheel organ), a sophisticated ‘dimension’-style symphonic chorus, a cyclic filter and a standalone vibrato.

The brief has been to keep everything dead simple for the user, and leave all the complicated stuff ‘under the bonnet’. This was one of the reasons I chose a stomp box format over a rack type unit with loads of parameters. Here are the units available so far…

These plugins can be used for creating unusual and original effects to guitar sounds, basses, drum loops, effects etc.
