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 AudioThing and Plugin Boutique for the intro price of 39 EUR until January 2nd, 2018.
