Following Things Motor, Gong Amp, Wires, and Noises, AudioThing has announced the release of a brand new audio plugin in collaboration with Hainbach.

A detailed digital translation of a unique combination of 1950s electronic music hardware from composer and YouTuber Hainbach’s studio, the Dials test equipment channel strip is made with the rich sound and experimental spirit of early electronic music studios in mind.

The basis of Dials is a re-purposed German vacuum tube radio broadcast device paired with a heavy-duty American bandpass filter. They form a channel strip like no other. The scientific and radio background of the equipment provides a tone that sets it apart, whether you are processing vocals, drums, or any other instrument. Due to the built-in compressor, it is perfectly suited to lend your voice-over the „larger than life“ feeling of great recordings of the past or make your drums sound like they could get past the door at Berghain. Speaking of which: if you are feeling adventurous, feed it impulses and hear it roar like Stockhausen at a Gabber party.

While its roots are in the past, this is a truly modern device with an unparalleled sound. It can be used to sweeten your music or to experiment – it can even become an instrument in your hands.

Dials features

  • Analog Preamp Emulation.
  • Analog Modelled Filters (HP, LP).
  • Easy to use Compressor.
  • Trip Modulation.
  • Resizable Window.
  • Preset system with randomizer.

Available in VST/VST3, AU, AAX and CLAP plugin formats for Windows and Mac, Dials is on sale for the intro price of 49 EUR/USD (regular 79 EUR/USD).

The offer is available at Plugin Boutique and from the AudioThing store until October 31st, 2022.
