Variety Of Sound has returned with an update to its FerricTDS tape dynamics effect plugin.

FerricTDS mkII introduces operating level calibration for better gain staging and output volume compensated processing.

The update also includes the following changes:

  • Metering ballistics revised and aligned accordingly.
  • Updated tape compression algorithms increasing punch, adding 2nd order harmonic processing, less IMD.
  • Updated limiter algorithm featuring ADC style converter clipping.
  • All non-linearities are running at higher sampling frequencies internally.
  • Adding a sophisticated analog signal path emulation.

The plugin is free to download for Windows as a 32- and 64-bit VST plugin at the Variety Of Sound website.
