Steinberg has announced the release of the Yamaha Vintage Plug-in Collection, a collection of professional signal processing plug-ins based on Yamaha’s Virtual Circuitry Modeling (VCM) technology.
Announced at this year’s Musikmesse in Frankfurt, Germany, the Yamaha Vintage Plug-in Collection comprises three groups of plug-ins: the Vintage Channel Strip, Vintage Open Deck and Vintage Stomp Pack. Based on Yamaha’s Virtual Circuitry Modeling (VCM) technology, each plug-in can be used in multi-instances and is compatible with VST 3, VST 2.4 and AU plug-in formats.
The Vintage Channel Strip consists of the EQ 601, Compressor 260 and Compressor 276, reproducing the sound characteristics of several classic Yamaha hardware equalizers and compressors from the 1970s.
The Vintage Open Deck recreates the analog circuitry and characteristics of four legendary tape recorders: Swiss ’70, Swiss ’78, Swiss ’85 and American ’70. For an even wider range of variation, the characteristics can be individually applied to the record and playback decks.
Vintage Stomp Pack features the Dual Phaser, Yamaha Phaser and Max 100 phaser plus one Yamaha flanger and one first-class wah-effect, providing effects processors for the typically 1980s’ rock sound.
Vintage Channel Strip, Vintage Stomp Pack and Vintage Open Deck are available immediately as download version and boxed version through the Steinberg Online Shop and from local Steinberg dealers worldwide. Compressor 276, Compressor 260 and Yamaha 601 EQ are also available exclusively as separate download via the Steinberg Online Shop.
