Audio Ease releases Speakerphone 2
Audio Ease has released Speakerphone 2, an audio plug-in that gives you authentic speakers of any size together with their natural environments.
In the 17 months after Speakerphone’s release it has quickly become a household name in audio post production and also in many music studios. Speakerphone version 2 has a new cleaner look, new features, many newly sampled guitar amp cabinets, antique phones, toys, answering machines and megaphones.
Speakerphone will give you all the walkie-talkies, distant transistor radios, upstairs TV sets, bullhorns, cell phones and guitar cabinets you’ll ever need, plus 5 gigabyte of ambiences and sound FX to provide some context.
Changes in Speakerphone 2
- All new GUI.
- Dozens of new speakers, amps, phones and toys.
- Microphone simulation module that hosts microphones ranging from Royers to toy mics.
- “Coverup” module can place any sound inside tin cans, cardboard boxes, under blankets or in the closed trunk of a car.
- Presets that switch via automation.
- Extensive LFO and envelope following section for controlling virtually all parameters of Speakerphone.
- New rooms and outdoor IR’s.
- Leslie speaker module, new codecs.
So if you want to see and hear for yourself what’s new (or if you just want to hear Arjen lock Nine Inch Nails’ Trent Reznor in the trunk of a Volvo parked on a moonlit business park) do check out the what’s new movie or take the complete guided tour.
Speakerphone 2 is available for Windows and Mac (VST/AU/RTAS/MAS) for $495 USD ex VAT. The upgrade to Speakerphone 2 costs $149 USD / 119 EUR and free upgrades are available to anyone that purchased Speakerphone or the All In Bundle in 2009.
