Oli Larkin's LFO Chopper is a free VST plug-in for Windows operating systems. It's basically a tremolo plug that works with a variety of different LFO waveforms. Unfortunately, the scope of those who will be able to use the plug-in is limited since it's only compatible with Windows and those DAW's that support VST plug-ins. The good news is that those who can indeed use it will get it free, as it's available as a straight download from the Oli Larkin website. Once you download it, you should be able to have it up and working for you within about a minute or so. There also isn't much of a learning curve with it since it's only got a few parameters to adjust. That includes sliders for minimum and maximum amplitude, delay, smoothing, and the rate at which you'd like it to function at. It also gives you the ability to set your LFO waveform shape and the type of response you'd like. I doubt a manual was made for this, nor should one be necessary.

SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

While I don't have a compatible system to run the Oli Larkin LFO Chopper anymore, when I did it was in Cubase SX on a Hewlett Packard Pavilion dv8000 Notebook computer. The computer had a 3.0 Ghz processor and 2 GB of RAM, which was enough for me to run what I needed to at the time, including this plug-in without any issues at all. I would be surprised to hear if other users had issues running this...

OVERALL OPINION

Oli Larkin's LFO Chopper is one that should definitely be had by those who have a compatible system being that it's free and pretty effective. It's a unique take on a classic effect, as is the case with a lot of the Oli Larkin plug-ins. I like the controls presented here as they're not your everyday tremolo controls. The sound is pretty good but nothing too incredible, although it will certainly get the job done, especially considering that those who have a Windows and VST based system probably don't have a plethora of high quality plug-ins to work with. Regardless of what you might have, it's absolutely worth it to add the Oli Larkin LFO Chopper to the mix if your system will permit you to...
