AudioThing has announced the release of an iOS version of its test equipment channel strip that delivers a detailed digital translation of a unique combination of 1950s electronic music hardware from the composer and YouTuber Hainbach.

Dials 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.

Dials for iOS/AUv3 is on sale for the intro price of $12.99 USD / 15.99 EUR until March 10th, 2023 (regular $23.99 USD / 19.99 EUR).

The desktop version for Windows, Mac and Linux (VST/VST3, AU, AAX and CLAP) was updated to version 1.0.2, including AAX Silicon support, improved routing behavior when audio is processing, and a fix for buffer issues in FL Studio. The desktop plugin is also on sale, priced 49 USD/EUR instead of 79 USD/EUR during the promotion.

The offer is available at the AudioThing store and from distributor Plugin Boutique.
