Plugin Boutique has launched a limited time discount on AudioThing’s Type series audio plugins as part of a Mixing Sale promotion.

On sale for $29 USD instead of $59 USD, the Type A vintage enhancer is inspired by the famous Dolby A Trick technique.

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.

Also available at 50% off is Type B, a plugin is inspired by a famous vintage exciter effect; the Aphex Aural Exciter.

The original unit was designed to add presence and brightness to vocal or instrument tracks. It was often used to enhance dull recordings where the high-frequency content was missing due to tape overdubs. Type B lets you control more aspects of the exciter circuit emulation, giving you access to the internal filter, the harmonic generator and more.

The plugins are available for Windows, Mac and Linux in VST/VST3, AU, AAX and CLAP formats.

The offer is valid until May 19th, 2024
