Waves and Abbey Road have released Reel ADT, a plug-in that emulates Abbey Road Studios' pioneering process of Artificial Double Tracking. The effect that would become an integral part of Abbey Road's signature sound was initially created at the famed studios in the 1960s to meet the needs of some very special clients: The Beatles.
Here's what they say:
Reel ADT puts the magic of that era in your hands within seconds. Using its intuitive controls, you can advance or push back the doubled signal to achieve genuine, lush-sounding delay and pitch variations. You can also drive each of the signals separately to add beautiful tape saturations.
With its authentic modeled valve tape machine sound and faithful emulation of wow and flutter, this plug-in can enhance any track with the impression of two separate takes, giving you results as close as possible to real double tracking. Other classic Abbey Road tape effects such as flanging and phasing can also be achieved with ease.
Price: $200, but is currently available for the introductory price of $99.
Waves/Abbey Road Reel ADT is compatible with native hosts as well as with MultiRack Native and MultiRack SoundGrid.
