iZotope has re-released Vinyl, their free vinyl simulation plug-in. By emulating the characteristics of vintage records and record players, Vinyl is designed for anyone looking to add the dirty, dusty feel of a different era to their sound.
The new version of Vinyl has been updated to support modern operating systems and audio editing software: the plug-in is now 64-bit compatible on both Mac and PC and supported formats now include AAX and VST3. Vinyl also features a new Spin Down button that simulates slowly stopping playback of a record, with results that can range from a dramatic "record stop" to a subtler nuance on an individual instrument. All of Vinyl's classic features allow a user to simulate the dust, scratches, crackles, pops, and warping of a worn record as well as the mechanical noises of a turntable. In addition, the Warp features are now available for use in all supported plug-in formats.
Price: Free - New customers may download Vinyl for free from the iZotope website. Customers who have downloaded previous versions of Vinyl will receive their free update details via email and within their iZotope Account.
