Steinberg Media Technologies has released the Yamaha Vintage Plug-in Collection. Announced at this year's Musikmesse in Frankfurt, Germany, the Yamaha Vintage Plug-in Collection comprises three groups of plug-ins: the Vintage Channel Strip, Vintage Open Deck and Vintage Stomp Pack. Based on Yamaha's Virtual Circuitry Modeling (VCM) technology, each plug-in can be used in multi-instances and is compatible with VST 3, VST 2.4 and AU plug-in formats.

The Vintage Channel Strip consists of the EQ 601, Compressor 260 and Compressor 276, reproducing the sound characteristics of several classic Yamaha hardware equalizers and compressors from the 1970s.

The Vintage Open Deck recreates the analog circuitry and characteristics of four legendary tape recorders: Swiss '70, Swiss '78, Swiss '85 and American '70. For an even wider range of variation, the characteristics can be individually applied to the record and playback decks.

Vintage Stomp Pack features the Dual Phaser, Yamaha Phaser and Max 100 phaser plus one Yamaha flanger and one first-class wah-effect, providing effects processors for the typically 1980s rock sound.

A 30-day evaluation copy of the Yamaha Vintage Plug-in Collection is available through the Steinberg website.
