ToneBytes and Softrave has released Analog Noise, an effect which adds the sound and atmosphere of analog recordings to your tracks and mixes.
The purpose of the plug-in is to add sounds typically found in the recordings of existing devices. For this goal, Analog Noise has 21 sound profiles, including the sound of magnetic tape with various coverings, the sound of vinyl records, and the sound of the signal of various tube and transistor devices, such as Hammond Sounder, Moog Liberation, Akai Ax-73, JVC MI-5000, etc.
With the help of the embedded equalizer, it is possible to either emphasize or mute those parts of the noise profile you want. The features of the equalizer are selected in such a way that it keeps its use of noise sounding natural.
A big range of noise level settings makes it possible to saturate the sound a little, or to greatly distort it. This allows Analog Noise to be used not only for adding effects to sound, but also as a source of the sound of different noises to be used in experimental styles of electronic music.
Analog Noise for Windows (VST) is available to purchase for $20 USD / 15 EUR.
