AudioThing has released Type A, a vintage enhancer audio effect plugin inspired by a famous vintage tape encoder.
The original unit was designed to be a noise reduction system for tape recording (encode stage) and playback (decode stage).
Type A emulates the encode stage, which was often misused as an enhancer, dynamically increasing the top end of a signal without introducing artefacts or altering the harmonic content. The results are similar to a dynamic EQ which adds presence and air to any track in a natural way.
Type A features
- Vintage Enhancer.
- Multi-band Compressor with 4 Bands.
- Adjustable Unit Noise.
- Oversample up to 16x.
- Resizable Window.
- Preset system with randomizer.
Type A for Windows and Mac (VST/AU/AAX) is on sale at Plugin Boutique for the intro price of 39 EUR until January 2nd, 2018.
