OldComms emulates three pieces of vintage military or government audio equipment:
- an amplifier that offers 40dB gain with loads of tube distortion when pushed, plus a tone control to boost/cut the mids and a noise reduction control that allows for a little noise to be mixed in, for that extra vintage vibe,
- a tone control which is a single parametric EQ that can boost/cut the set frequency and which also has automatic shelving filters to boost/cut the high and low end,
- a Limiter/Compressor based on the rare but very popular Maxson/Dept of Commerce compressor.
We have attempted to emulate an authentic sound for these three modules which results in a warmer tone, with the lower bandwidth and extra dirtiness audio equipment had back in those days. This makes OldComms excellent for things such as (distorted) guitars and distorted vocals.

I LOVE OLDCOMMS a lot Great vintage sound great look use it in parallel with Ressoeq is real cool with the Ressoeq barely audible just adding a little extra colour and character gorgeous, the EQ/Filter is very different but real sweet when you get used to it, which doesn't take too long at all.
Stand alone a real plus add MIDI control and an AU version I'd be even more in love with it.
