    frankfurt... i find it odd that any digital plugin maker talks about bringing out analog warmth through a digital plugin..

    Lol, I'm with you Ether. Although the plugs do have their uses, basically I think the point of these plugins is to "correct" what digital recording sounds like. The developers typically are analog lovers and they program these plugs to boost/cut things in whatever you put them on to basically filter out the "digital sound". It does....well something to the tracks but I usually never really liked any of the plugins that claim to add that "analog warmth" just in general. If I wanted what these plugins offer, I would've recorded on something analog. I'm fine with just using an analog console, instead of emulating it.

    Doesn't look like a plugin to me, but an added "background noise" to make dithering sound better.

    its added background noise like brett says. I love the crane song stuff myself, the phoenix plug in is great and the tape saturation on the spider is subtle but cool.

    Forgive my ignorance, but how does added background noise make a track sound better?

    It's almost inaudible, it's for the dithering to be optimized or something.

    So the pro's here think its worth to give a ear on it?
    It's not any kind of snake oil?

    I have it. Actually Dave gave it to me. It's a really long (151.5mb stereo 16bit AIFF file) on a C.D.
    Not at my D.A.W. computer at the moment, but it adds subtle {{noise}} at certain frequencies. Sorry can't remember which freqs. but it's one high and one low frequency range. To us it does add subtle....repeat subtle /warmth to a track. SUBTLE... is the key word here. If you did an all acoustic recording it might be more noticeable. Cool to have though!:Spin:

    I've got it too. Very very subtle, but sounds better than most other dithers I've tried. If I have to dither, it's with the Crane Song file.
