Plugin Boutique has launched some new videos in which Jerry Mateo takes a look some recently released plugins.

First up is an overview of the interface and presets of Audiority’s Echoes T7E analog modeled Italian magnetic echo plugin.

Echoes T7E is a faithful recreation of a vintage tube magnetic echo made in Italy in the early ‘60s. This echo effect unit is based on a magnetic spinning drum with both record and playback heads arranged around a recording wire wound around the drum circumference. This solution provides better stability over the usual tape transport with reduced wow and flutter.

Since the main “core” of this effect is based on the above mechanism, we modelled both the mechanics and the electronics. Echoes T7E also provides 3 different playback modes allowing you to set different spinning speed or ever synchronize it to your host tempo extending the original delay length from -310ms up to -1100ms.

The Aparillo textural synthesizer instrument from Sugar Bytes get a quick start guide and features reveal.

Aparillo is based on two interdependent FM Synthesizer’s, capable of forming the most complex timbres.

The signal generator has been enriched with fine DSP spices like Jitter, Brightness and Formant/Waveshaping, followed by a free-signal flow Filter/Spacial Comb device, flowing into a polyphonic Auto Pan, the obligatory Delay and our finest Reverb algorithm yet.

Jerry also checks out the HalfTime plugin by Cableguys in a rock music tutorial.

HalfTime transforms any audio into a dark, downtempo version of itself, giving your tracks huge mood and atmosphere. Lead synths mutate into heavyweight EDM bass monsters. Plinky piano lines become haunting trap melodies. Percussion thickens, expanding to reveal new rhythmic possibilities.

Just add the plugin for an instant half-speed effect with zero set-up, or go in deep with powerful creative controls. HalfTime works on loops, virtual instruments or even live audio input, inspiring you in seconds.

All these plugins are available from Plugin Boutique now.
