Lese has announced an update to its free audio degradation effect plugin for Windows and Mac.

Designed to simulate a bad internet connection, Codec is built around the Opus encoder/decoder system. Version 1.1 comes with delay compensation, internal optimizations, coloration improvement and a new dry/wet mix system.

One technical downfall that Codec had at release was it’s lack of proper delay compensation, but no more! Proper delay compensation has been worked out, and a mix knob has also been added! You can download the new version of Codec right where you found it the first time (and it will always be free).

The only changes you will notice other than the proper delay compensation is that the interface has also been slightly altered to accommodate the new Dry / Wet Mix knob. The Width parameter for the input coloration controls has been placed in between the Coloration and Frequency sliders, in a number box.

Codec is free to download in VST3 and AU plugin formats for Windows and Mac.
