Audio editing with vintage effects
Takes your audio on a journey through time with Bitmachine! This effect employs the best bit- and sample-rate reduction as well as a downstream analogue filter to produce a great 'Lo-fi' sound so popular in the 80s.
Create a wider and deeper sound with the Chorus effect. This popular effect is often used on guitars and synth to fatten up the sounds, therefore creating the illusion of a thicker multitrack recording.
Analog Delay offers more creative results than standard, run-of-the-mill delays. You can easily adjust the delay times while you play your instruments or go for more typical band echo sounds, all completely artefact free.
This is a great, high-gain distortion effect, perfect for crunchy lead guitar sounds. Featuring a complete modelled tube preamp circuit, this is great for creating 'British' amp sounds and for laying down guitar tracks quickly and easily.
An excellent modulation effect which includes different filter types and modulation times to control the frequency response of a modulation source. It's a flexible effect with a wide range of uses, typically to create the famous 'wah' effect on guitars.
This is a more dramatic modulation effect that can introduce a swirling sound often used on guitar and drum sounds. It includes various types of flanging sounds, including a comb-filter effect often used in techno and house.
