AudioThing has announced an update to the Speakers plugin effect designed to emulate a wide range of loudspeakers and microphones using a state-of-the-art convolution engine.

Version 1.2 includes support for macOS 11 Big Sur (Universal 2 Binary) and various other new features, improvements and fixes.

Shape any sound like it’s being played by an old telephone, radio, or classic cabinet; or shape it like it’s being recorded by a vintage ribbon microphone or even a toy recorder.

Speakers features a freely configurable effects chain, comprising compression, distortion, and filtering, as well as an array of looping background noises for setting the sound in a variety of environments.
