Shattered Glas Audio Code Red

Shattered Glass Audio has launched Code Red, an console emulation effect plugin for Windows and Mac.

Code Red is inspired by two versions of the classic, all tube, British console form the 1960s most closely associated with the sound of The Beatles.

The original, “Pop” and “Classic”, EQs had fixed characteristic frequencies and Qs so we thought it would be nice to make the EQ fully adjustable. While we were at it we added two more mid bands and a high pass filter. Fear not, the original EQs are still available, as presets.

Two preamp models, based on the full circuit simulation, accurately emulate preamps used in two versions of the original console this plug-in is based on.

Code Red features

  • High fidelity models of two original preamps based on the full circuit simulation.
  • Fully flexible parametric EQ.
  • Accurately modeled original “Classic” and “Pop” EQs are included as presets.
  • Automatic 4x oversampling.
  • Stereo processing mode with linked as well as separate Left and Right channel EQ and controls.
  • Mid-sides processing mode.
  • Selectable Mono processing mode for increased efficiency when processing mono signals.
  • Dry-Wet mixing.

Code Red for Windows and Mac (VST/AU) is available for purchase for $44.99 USD. The plugin is free for those who donated $20 USD or more to Shattered Glass Audio for Code Red Free before February 1st, 2016.
