On this page, you will find a range of plugins that are offered as freeware. In the development of these freebies, the same high quality standards as for the commercial products apply - the only difference between free and commercial products is the complexity of the feature set.
RS-MET currently offers two commercial products: the subtractive virtual synthesizer 'Straightliner' and the sophisticated delay plugin 'EchoLab'. To purchase a product, you just buy a keyfile via PayPal and put it into the same directory where the plugin resides. The next time the plugin is loaded, it will recognize the keyfile and switch from demo-mode into unrestricted mode.
This page contains tutorials on various audio effects and sound synthesis techniques and how to use them. Although some of these tutorials may contain references to RS-MET products, they are written in a way so as to be generally applicable and useful.
Welcome to Robin Schmidt's Music Engineering Tools. On this site, you will find high-precision software tools for sound-synthesis, and music production. The software comes in the form of plugins for the VST interface (VST is a trademark of Steinberg Media Technologies GmbH) on the MS Windows platform. RS-MET aims to satisfy the musician's desire for good sounding instruments and effects with intuitive access to musically relevant parameters as well as the audio engineer's (additional) desire for precise control and accurate visual presentation.
