Vintage Effects Suite
Reproduce the naturally full and warm sound of analog tools in an authentic way.
Ecox is a plug-in that emulates realistic tape echo sounds. You can reproduce the sound here in an authentic way that sounds as if different tape speeds were used to change the delay – with tracking variations and loss of high frequencies during tape feedback.
This filter has been developed to control frequency resonance for a modulation source. This enables you to create a characteristically analog sound and internal distortion. Cut-off frequency and resonance work together here to create synthesizer sweeps and creative drum loop distortion that sound anything but digital.
Corvex produces a refined sound tapestry of variations between analog chorus and flanger effects that goes beyond standard concepts. Give your instruments astounding acoustic depth, make them sound much fuller, or create new, multi-layered textures.
Room for new ideas: Create the exact reverb effect you've been looking for.
Sound design for drums, vocals and guitars
VariVerb II offers more depth and more texture for your audio. The huge range of presets for drums, vocals and guitars in this plug-in are based on a variety of algorithms and can be used not just for making improvements, but as the starting point for complex sound design.
Precisely calculated reflection pattern
Use VariVerb II to create reverb based on complex reflection pattern and various software models rather than on the basis of impulse responses. Create various effects with adjustable parameters such as room, plate, spring and non-linear reverb, all based on algorithmic calculations.
