Alborosie Dub Station – We are proud to present to you Alborosie Dub Station, located in the heart of Jamaica’s most prolific music community, the Waterhouse in Kingston. We sampled, analyzed and meticulously recreated the original filter, echo and spring reverb that was used, modified and used by legendary Osborne Ruddock “King Tubby” – producer, studio engineer and pioneer of dub-reggae from the golden era of the 70s – from his personal collection of vintage gear Alborosie …
Fog Convolver – Virtual convolutional processor. Fog Convolver can be used to add reverb, create special effects, and apply acoustic impulse captured from audio equipment.
Frostbite v1.5.1 is a multi-effect that includes Ring Modulator, Feedback, and Freeze modules. The plugin is well suited for atmospheric and cinematic music, but can also be used for extreme sound experiments. Six different combinations provide a flexible signal path.
Megaphone is a plugin that emulates a loudspeaker / horn. It features two speaker emulations, slapback control and a noise section.
miniVerb – Lets you create reverb inspired by 1980s video game soundtracks
OuterSpace is an emulation plug-in for Roland’s famous vintage tape delay RE-201, created in the early seventies. As a source device, the Outer Space has a three-head ribbon echo section and a spring reverb compartment.
Phase Motion – Lets you simulate phase using one of five LFO waveforms (sine, triangle, saw, square, random sample). In this case, the size can be adjusted either manually or synchronized with the pace of the host program. The ‘Depth’ and ‘Feedback’ controls let you create a wide variety of phaser sounds.
Reels – AudioThing Reels tape recorder emulator downsamples any signal passed through it. Users can choose from three types of film (Japanese, French, Italian) and the playback speed, which will affect the intensity of signal processing. In addition, the plug-in provides a number of settings that are responsible for tape hiss, ducking and other noises, an echo section, as well as a special “Tape Stop” function that simulates a kind of attenuation that occurs when the tape stops.
Space Strip is a multi-effect plugin with 6 modules: Contour, Vibe, Slapback, Ambience, Ensemble and Stereo. Modules can be positioned in any combination by simply dragging and dropping. The Space Strip will add depth and space to your sounds, especially synthesizer and keyboards.
Speaker – overdrive effect with loudspeaker emulation. The plugin also has a fixed compressor, amp stage and mix control.
Springs is a virtual simulator of vintage spring reverbs.
The Orb is a formant filter from AudioThing that simulates the characteristics of the human voice. Featuring a set of three band pass filters, The Orb can transform any sound into vowel sounds.
Things Motor is a modern, extended take on Dave Young’s “The Crystal Palace”, co-developed with electronic musician Hainbach. Things Motor is a sound effect inspired by “The Crystal Palace” created by Dave Young for the BBC’s radio studio. It used a large capacitor that spins on a motor. With this device, you can smoothly combine up to sixteen sounds, opening up the possibilities for high-quality sound editing. It also made it possible to switch these channels based on speed.
This avant-garde technique from the past can be heard on the soundtrack to Brian Hodgson and Delia Derbyshire’s Doctor Who’s “Crotons” series. He was able to create sounds ranging from sublime to almost granular. Things Motor takes this idea and brings it to life today. This is not only emulation, but also further development.
Things Motor uses a side chain to combine two signals. There is no fixed physical waveform, the plugin uses a variable waveform LFO as a motor with variable motor start / stop times. AudoThing then added vibrato and pan, synchronized with the motor LFO, as well as some analog sound effects. This opens up space for a lot more timbres. From smooth morphing, aggressively chopped or ringing sounds to the sonic worlds in between.
Things Texture is an easy-to-use granular reverb with pitch shifting and mid / side mode. Texture can transform any sound into an ambient soundscape or add drone ambiance to your tracks.
Type-A is a virtual simulator of using a squelch as an enhancer.
The original unit was designed as a noise reduction system for tape recording (encoding stage) and playback (decoding stage).
Valve Exciter is a harmonic enhancer with vintage tube emulation. The xciter section contains tuned filters with the ability to boost center frequencies using the Harmonics knob.
Valve Filter VF-1 – AudioThing was inspired by Telefunken’s classic ladder filter and lamps. The program can definitely be called vintage in the best sense of the word.
Vinyl Strip – Includes 6 modules: Distortion, Compressor, Bit Crusher, Tilt EQ, Vintage Reverb and Vinylizer. With a simple drag and drop, modules can be organized in any order. This plugin will be useful to all those musicians who want to add the “flavor” of old vinyl records to their sounds.
WaveBox is a dynamic wave shaper (wave distortion effect) plug-in that can be used for both symmetrical and asymmetrical distortion effects.
