Syncersoft & Softrave have announced the release of TapeHarmonizer, a VST effect plug-in for Windows that enriches sound with the creation of new harmonics using a unique psychoacoustic algorithm: cross-modulation of harmonic operators and imposition of new frequencies. It costs €44.
This plug-in is based on the technology of enriching low and mid frequencies used in the BassBooster and GuitarBooster plug-ins with a Moog-style warm analog-like filter used in the TM - 200X synth (version 1.8).
The idea was to create an emulation of a professional Reel to Reel sound that can make your sound warm and analog-like but still clear and brilliant. With TapeHarmonizer you have control over 4 bands of frequencies. You can also play with the filter to emulate frequency response of tape, to create special old tape effects, that's why filter controls have MIDI learn. Or you can use this plug-in just as a phat analog-like filter.
This plug-in was inspired by psychoacoustic research of Shlejonkin Alexandr and Russian works on mathematical physics.
