As a recording guy, I already know the fact that we all are fond of free stuff like VST instruments for free, free VST plugins, audio libraries, tips, and tutorials. I always try to serve most relevant and useful free stuff on my website so that it could help you in your music production career. Last week I came with 3 useful VST effect plugins.
Today, I’m here with 3 must-have VST instruments for you and I think that these free VST instruments would make your day.
Here are these.
Choir Virtual Instrument
Spitfire Audio is a well-known maker for virtual instruments and samplers and time to time they release free VST instruments for music producers. In the series of free virtual instruments, Spitfire Audio now released their another free instrument LABS Choir.
They said that in June 2017 they sampled Eric Whitacre Singers at Air Studios, London, to sample their first choir library. The whole process was curated and conducted by Eric Whitacre.

Soundemote’s Free Rhythm And Pitch Generator VST/AU Plugin
Another one is Rhythm and pitch generator plugin by Soundemote. It’s a virtual synthesizer available free for Windows and Mac users. As it is a VST and AU plugin its compatible with any DAW supports these protocols.
There are 2 main components of Rhythm And Pitch Generator’s synthesis engine
- Analog-style arpeggiator
- TriSaw morphable oscillator
It also features ADSR envelope with velocity sensitivity, adjustable curves, oversampling support, and a built-in preset manager.
This is an ideal solution to create blazing fast sequences.
Here are some features of this virtual synth.
- Tri Saw morphable oscillator by Robin Schmidt’s can be morphed (not crossfaded!) into saw, anti-sine wave, square, tri, sine, and all in between, generates warm analog saws giving the tones that range from chiptune squares.
- You can use the MASTER RATE knob to increase the arpeggiator to maximum speeds or slow it down to get dying-battery fx effect. You also get an option to adjust the pitch rate for this changing effect.
- There are clock dividers provided to various desired beat patterns and a RaPG to arrange them into rhythm series.
- You can manually select your notes in timeframe using the OCTAVE OFFSET knob to perform the arpeggio.
