Analog saturation is one the best tools available in big studio, especially from vintage devices. To offer this unique timbre to everyone, AudioThing released today Type A, a vintage enhancer plugin that is inspired by the famous Dolby A-Type – Model 361. Beside the vintage enhancer, the plugin features also an easy-to-use multi-band compressor with 4 bands.
The original unit was designed to be a noise reduction system for tape recording (encode stage) and playback (decode stage). Type A emulates the encode stage, which was often misused as an enhancer, dynamically increasing the top end of a signal without introducing artefacts or altering the harmonic content. The results are similar to a dynamic EQ which adds presence and air to any track in a natural way.
Features of Type A
- Vintage Enhancer.
- Multi-band Compressor with 4 Bands.
- Adjustable Unit Noise.
- Oversample up to 16x.
- Resizable Window.
- Preset system with randomizer.
Type A is now available for Windows and Mac (VST/AU/AAX) for 39$ for limited time. A free demo is available on the official website.
