Shattered Glass Audio has released Code Red Free, a free tube console effect plug-in for Windows and Mac.
Code Red Free is inspired by a classic, all tube, British console form the late 60s. The original console was known for its EQ, bold and punchy character, and the warmth it imparted. The Beatles recorded most of their material using this, and other versions of this console. Easily recognized overdriven sound of the Beatles’ Revolution was created by chaining two preamps from this console.
Shattered Glass Audio has gone to considerable lengths to find accurate information and reproduce the original EQ curves and accurately model the preamp.
Code Red Free features
- Accurately modeled original EQ with “Classic” and “Pop” modes.
- Additional EQ options in addition to the original EQ.
- High fidelity model of the original preamp based on the full circuit simulation.
- Automatic 4x oversampling.
- Stereo processing mode with linked as well as separate Left and Right channel EQ and controls.
- Selectable Mono processing mode for increased efficiency when processing mono signal.
- Dry-Wet mixing.
Code Red Free is a free download for Windows and Mac (VST/AU).
