AudioThing has announced an update to its accurately modeled and enhanced 1970s Soviet wire recorder in collaboration with Hainbach.

Version 1.2.1 of Wires comes with support for Linux VST2, VST3, CLAP plugin formats, macOS 13 Ventura and Windows 11. The update also comes with minor graphic changes, and compatibility with macOS 10.11 and 10.12. It is now also available for iOS.

Made originally for military and secret service use across the Iron Curtain, in the hands of a few avant garde musicians it became a magical lofi-tool and ghostly echo machine. Now this rare and rather finicky to operate piece of hardware is available for the first time as a faithful yet modern plugin. Transform your audio to the world of numbers stations and secret operations, dub out to very unusual echoes or make the most lofi beats to study too.

Wires is on sale for 39 USD/EUR until January 31st, 2023 (regular 59 USD/EUR).

The offer is available at the AudioThing store and from distributor Plugin Boutique.

The iOS/AUv3 version is $12.99 USD at the App Store.
