BTE Audio has released version 2.0 of TS’ Secret, a free vintage overdrive effect plug-in for Windows.
Soft clipping alone is not sufficient to emulate the elusive creamy character of a legendary vintage overdrive pedal. In order to explore the secret ingredients of legendary sound and feel, every subtlety throughout the entire signal path should be meticulously analyzed and documented. Only this ensures authentic recreation of the exact sound and feel of the legend in the digital domain. TS’ Secret is the result of this keen but painful philosophy.
Just like its legendary role model, TS’ Secret preserves the original dynamics of its input signal, which avoids muddiness and vastly improves clarity and responsiveness (see the accompanying article for details). Regardless of the overdrive amount, it stays in focus and delivers the ultimate touch sensitive dynamic punch.
TS’ Secret for Windows (VST) is available to download at no cost.
