AudioThing has announced an update to the Springs audio effect, a collection of vintage spring reverbs paired with an authentic Baxandall EQ emulation.

Version 1.2.5 includes new spring reverb models and various improvements and fixes.

Springs features emulations from 11 types of spring reverbs, ranging from a long 6-spring pipe to a tiny battery-powered single-spring unit. We have used a combination of convolution and modelling to recreate the vintage character of each reverb.

Spring reverbs were usually paired with tone stacks from guitar amplifiers. Springs features one of the most iconic and unique sounding tone stack equalizers: the Baxandall EQ. A classic Baxandall tone stack usually features just the bass and treble bands, but we have also added a Mid band (with control over the Q).

Changes in Springs v1.2.5

  • Added: HVS-1 Model.
  • Added: RE-201 (bright).
  • Added: Internal support for left-hand mouse users.
  • Improved: macOS CPU usage.
  • Improved: IR Editor CPU usage.
  • Fixed: Rendering Offline issue while there’s a Spring Type automation.
  • Fixed: Possible unwanted fade-in when bouncing in offline mode on some hosts.
  • Fixed: Parameter locks not recalling properly when loading saved projects.

Available in VST/VST3, AU and AAX plugin formats for Windows and Mac, Springs is on sale at a 35% discount until November 1st, priced 44 EUR (regular 69 EUR).

The plugin is available from AudioThing and distributor Plugin Boutique.
