John Crosby Acoustics has released an update to Olitanh, the vintage vibe compressor effect plugin that was designed as part of KVR Audio’s 2021 Developer Challenge.

Distortion coupled with compressor brings interdependent wave-shaping and envelope-shaping. Controlled adding of harmonics. Level boosting and stereo enhancing.

Good for “warming up” bass instruments, guitars and vocals, or for “gluing” stereo mixes and groups.

Version 1.0.1 adds a control for makeup gain. The effect of the Mix parameter is now stronger when over 100%, and the update also adds a polarity flipped dry signal which can be useful when using Olitanh in parallel processing of a spectral band.

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