HoRNet Plugins has released an update to the AnalogStage console emulation plugin that re-creates sound characteristics that are usually associated with analog gear.

AnalogStage simulates the response of three different types of analog technology: operational amplifiers (the cleanest and more modern technology), transistor (the discrete transistor designs were popular in the 70s and have some fat saturation) and tube (the dynamic and smooth saturation of the past).

Every one of the three different type of emulation can be used inside the same project but for convenience you can create up to eight group of instances so that any change to the emulation type, age, hiss switch and saturation switch is applied to every plugin belonging to the group.

Changes in AnalogStage v1.2.0

  • Fixed crash with GarageBand.
  • Improved VU Meter response.
  • Fixed VU Meter being randomly stuck.
  • Added Apple M1 support.
  • Removed 32-bit support.
  • Raised minimum required OS to macOS 10.11 and Windows Vista.

AnalogStage costs 17.99 EUR. The update is free for owners of the plugin.
