The update to v3.1 is available for free. It adds a VST3 version and adds a completely new standalone-version for PC. Gladiator 3.1 is downward-compatible with all previous versions. All existing song projects and patches can be loaded without any further steps necessary.

New features:

  • Added a VST3 version.
  • You can select from 3 different installation types: Minimal (VST2 only), Default (VST2 + Standalone) and Full (VST2 + VST3 + Standalone).
  • Added a Microsoft-approved certificate to the installer.


  • More smart detection of the VST2 path.
  • Higher performance, faster loading and faster saving.
  • Updated some links.
  • Slightly enhanced sound of the reverb.
  • More precise timing in 44kHz.
  • More linear frequency respone for very high frequencies.
  • FreebeiHost.cfg and .log file is not longer created in VST2 directory.

New features (standalone-version):

  • Added a recorder that can export your jam-session to a wav-file.
  • The BPM-rate can be changed.
  • Added a soft-clipping-algorithm with low harmonic distortion.
  • The current patch can be saved on exit and is reloaded automatically on start.
  • MME-driver support.
  • Midi-through support with output-routing.
  • Added Midi-velocity-curves with multipoint-splines.
  • Optional Midi-transposition with up to +-48 semitones.
  • Optional Midi-channel-filtering.
  • The current BPM-rate, CPU-load and volume is shown on the top-panel.

  • Microsoft dropped support for 32-bit Windows. As a result, we will not longer provide updates for it. If you still depend on it you can install v3.0 instead.
