Plugin Alliance has introduced Unfiltered Audio’s brand new effect plugin Needlepoint, a next generation vinyl emulation featuring physical modeling and tremendous vibe.

Unfiltered Audio raises the bar (and lowers the tonearm) with Needlepoint: a revolution in vinyl simulation. Featuring a full platter of advanced physical modeling technology, it offers a deep into the warm, fuzzy sound of turntable noises. Use it subtly for among the most convincing vinyl emulations available, or push the needle far past realism for some seriously warped sounds.

Needlepoint features

  • Physically modeled vinyl emulation to degrade your audio in persuasively nostalgic ways.
  • Choose from a variety of classic and custom turntable speeds.
  • Warp your sound with continuous control over wow, flutter and pitch that’s easy to automate by hand.
  • Use the broken mode for analog-style looping, stutter and glitch effects.
  • A spindown button for authentic vinyl stop and start effects.
  • Onboard single knob compressor with 6 flavorful modes.
  • Customizable interface with choice of beautiful color schemes.
  • A full suite of handcrafted presets for subtle and severe tonebending alike.

Regularly $149.99 USD, Needlepoint for Windows and Mac (VST/VST3, AU and AAX) is on sale for the introductory price of $49.99 USD for a limited time. It is also included in various bundle options.
