Plugin Boutique has released Radio, a new crate digging type utility that allows you to stream and sample from a diverse list of internet radio stations.
You can use Radio as a plugin within your DAW when you are feeling creative, or use it as a standalone application when you simply want to listen to the radio.
Once you launch Radio, you can select from a carefully curated list of online stations. The station presets are diverse and include a balance of comedy, sci-fi, police scanners, ambient, spoken word, paranormal and many more, so it’s easy to find something unexpected!
Radio records the last 30 seconds of any streamed material. Once you hear something you like, select it, save it and drag it into your DAW. Finding new samples to inspire your music has never been done like this before!
The onboard FX section lends Radio the authentic air of real consumer equipment, with 24 processors to make your feed sound like it’s coming through a genuine tube radio speaker, car stereo, phone or another device.
- Buffer audio within Radio for sampling, or record everything in your DAW.
- Simply select clips from Radio’s display to save them permanently for later use.
- Drag and drop sampled clips from the plugin to your DAW.
- 24 FX emulations including vintage radios, car and portable stereos, small speakers and phones.
