ADT - Artificial Double Tracking is a plug-in which emulates the "Artificial Double Tracking" technique invented by The Beatles at Abbey Road Studios. It takes a mono input signal and generates a stereo signal with the original signal panned to one side and the ADT signal panned to the other.

ADT - Artificial Double Tracking
The ADT technique was developed at Abbey Road Studios by engineers recording The Beatles in the 1960s. To free John Lennon from having to sing everything twice for real double tracking they came up with an artificial replacement: they sent the original signal to another tape machine and re-recorded it. Due to the physical distance between record and playback heads the new signal was delayed. The length of the delay depends on the tape speed (the slower the tape is running the longer it takes for the signal to travel from the record to the playback head). However, due to the machine's (small amounts of) Wow and Flutter the delay time was not fixed but varied slightly, giving an additional chorus-like effect.

The ADT plug-in takes a mono input signal and creates a stereo output. The original input signal will be output on one channel, the new ADT signal on the other. Blending the two is also possible. The plug-in allows to control the delay time (10 - 50ms), Wow and Flutter (both with intensity in % and frequency). All values are based on the technical data of the tape machines that was originally used to create this effect.

Controls:

  • Delay: the time the ADT signal is delayed, 10 - 50 ms.
  • Dra Level: the level of the original signal.
  • ADT Level: the level of the ADT signal.
  • ADT Pan: the pan position of the ADT signal, the original signal is positioned at the opposite side.
  • Wow: amount of low frequency playback speed variation, 0 - 0.2%.
  • WowFreq.: low frequency playback speed variation rate, 0 - 6Hz.
  • Waveform: waveform of Wow, Sine or Triangle.
  • Flutter: amount of high frequency playback speed variation, 0 - 0.2%.
  • FlutFreq.: high frequency playback speed variation rate, 4 - 60Hz.
  • Waveform: waveform of Flutter, Sine or Triangle.

Well I give 10/10. I've made a GRP Bus Preset in Cubase that mutes the right channel.

Use this plugin in 99% of my songs. Incredible work .
