Airwindows releases free
PowerSag, Fracture, NaturalizeDither and NodeDither
11th January 2017
Over the last month Airwindows
has released four new free plug-ins for Mac OS X and
Windows in AU and VST plug-in formats:
- PowerSag - Emulates power
supply limitations for analog modeling.
- Fracture - Soft
- NaturalizeDither - Deterministic dither uses
Benford Realness calculations for each sample.
- NodeDither - The testbed for the TPDF-based
dithers. Flanger dither.
We’re going to explore the early
Desk plugins (as free VSTs), so here we’ll start off
with one of the underlying principles! PowerSag
models the problem of analog power supplies that
can’t source enough current to drive the output of
the circuit. The circuit doesn’t directly distort,
but the more output it’s been making, the less is in
reserve. This is part of the Desk line of plugins,
but now it’s a distinct component to play with.
