A Vibrato VST is a pitch based effect that causes a steady increase and decrease in pitch of an audio track. It differs from a Tremolo which creates a steady increase and decrease in volume.
A Vibrato VST can add color, character, and expression to an audio signal. It is similar to a Guitar whammy bar which goes by the misnomer of a Tremolo Bar. In actuality a whammy bar is used to add Vibrato to sustained notes by warping and fluctuating their pitch.
As well as rock and metal, a Vibrato is used in countless music genres where it can be used on samples, guitar tracks, synths, you name it. We have created a list of some great free and paid vibrato VSTs that help in audio production. So, without further ado let’s get started.
