FREE DOWNLOAD: kn0ck0ut 0.8 - DIY Acapella Creation Software - Knockout

Download link: Free Download of kn0ck0ut v0.8 by St3pan0va

Kn0ck0ut v0.8 is VST plugin which allows you to create a DIY acapella using your DAW by spectrally analysing the instrumental and original versions of a track.

This software is by St3pan0va but as their original host site for the free download has since disappeared, I have uploaded it via niallspence.com.

The software is totally free to download, and checkout the read me that comes with the zip download for more information about kn0ck0ut (pronounced knockout). Please note this download is fully legal as the software is distributed as freeware.

While the results using this plugin are far from perfect I decided it would be worth uploading knockout to the internet once more as it still garners interest on sites such as acapellas4u.co.uk.

Also if you run LV2 compatible software then there is a port of the kno0ck0ut plugin with improved performance available here.

Have fun creating acapellas and thanks for reading!

  2. It is the link at the top of the post for the download - I guess I didn't make it very clear so I will make it a bit clearer in future. Here is the download URL - https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/270372120/website_excl_images/Software%20Downloads/kn0ck0ut/kn0ck0ut.zip

    Hopefully that should help.

  3. It states that I need to place it in the VST plug-in directory but I only have a plug-in file. ???

    1. The phrase 'VST plug-in directory' is referring to the plug-in directory of your DAW software (for instance Ableton or a similar application). To use Knockout you have to use it with a DAW type application that supports VST plugins. Hope that answers your question :)

  4. I downloaded the plug and put the .dll file in the "plug-ins" folder, but now I can't find the plugin when I open Audacity.

    1. I'm not sure if the Knockout plug in works with Audacity - I've only used Knockout with DAW type software (ableton etc).
