Lo-fi filter or vinyl simulator plugin?

Postby Dave_CO » Tue Feb 26, 2008 5:09 pm

I'm looking for a good lo-fi filter and vinyl sim to make my recordings sound crummy :D. Well not really but I do want to spice up a few old timey originals I'm working on, to give the tracks a vintage "feel". All of the tracks are just guitar, vox and kazoo so I don't need to mess with it too much. I have Spaceman and iZotope Vinyl and those are pretty cool, epsecially for free, but I'm sure there is better stuff out there. Suggestions?

Mark McDonald's a member here who pops up from time to time, who used one of those effects on a CD he put out. Maybe he'll turn up and tell us what he uses...

Try EQ-ing out the extreme top and bottom frequencies. Gives you a nice, middy sound that can sound like a telephone or vintage radio.

You can find a great plug in here for doing exactly what you want, and the price is right, it's free.

As for Mark McDonald whom I mentioned, I haven't seen him here in a while but he's posting over on the IGS forum. I drop in there once in a blue moon.

if you haven't recorded the track yet, and have some bucks to spare, try this - http://www.placidaudio.com/

bloody awesome (and on my 'to buy, URGENTLY' list). 8)

(and I love the fact that they closed an airport over it, lol)

That's hilarious!

(And if it had been a pipe bomb, it wouldn't have been a very good one.)

He's lucky they didn't blast his luggage!

I like how they still let him on the plane regardless. If he had genuinely had a pipe bomb in his luggage, why did they think he obviously didn't have anything else planned to carry onboard? Mind you, my experience of people in positions f authority is that they seldom have the smarts to handle such positions. :roll: :lol:
