Inspired by the smooth dynamic shaping capabilities of some high-end reel-to-reel tape recorders, this plug-in simulates three of the most distinctive and much appreciated sonic effects generated by these devices:

  • DYNAMICS – gently shaping the overall dynamic response
  • SATURATION – adding extra harmonic-related content
  • LIMITING – controlling peak performance

FerricTDS features

  • Performs gentle audio dynamic treatments.
  • Masters difficult to handle audio material.
  • Adds extra harmonics and saturation effects.
  • Controls outgoing audio peaks.
  • State-of-the-art digital signal processing.
  • 4x oversampled core algorithms.
  • Performance-critical parts are written in assembler.
  • Completely SSE-optimized.

FerricTDS is available as a freeware VST effect plug-in for Windows PC. It is part of the KVR Developer Challenge 2009.
