Voxengo

Analogflux is a suite of Windows VST effect plug-ins designed to deliver the sounds of the analog days. In the core of these processors Voxengo has extensively used convolution processing to match the response of the original analog gear. This suite consists of TapeBus, Delay, Impulse, Insert and Chorus plug-ins.

TapeBus recreates characteristic elements of the reel-to-reel tape sound. This includes saturation, modulation noise and smearing effects which are known for the 'analog' feel they bring to any audio recording. This plug-in also applies a selected impulse response taken from the existing tape machine.

Delay models sound of an old analog delay module. Beside this it offers the user modern two-tap delay controls including separate pre-delay and feedback delay controls which together allow you to build ping-pong kind of echo soundscapes. Delay also contains a cross-feedback path between the channels which enables you to create even more complex echo structures. It also offers you a BPM control with the ability to sync it to the host tempo changes. And the most important thing is that you can choose the response of the delay module: from moderately bright to endlessly dark, taken from the real analog delay module.

Insert is Voxengo's attempt to create a simple processor which could be inserted on any track to make it sound less digitally-focused and thus make it sound warmer. Beside the severe phase smearing this plug-in introduces it also allows you to apply modulation noise of selectable strength. This processor while sounding subtle at the first glance can do miracles at taming overly sharp transients.

Impulse is a greatly simplified version of Voxengo's Pristine Space 8-channel convolution processor. The Impulse plug-in is a two-channel convolution processor designed to be used on channel inserts and reverb sends. It allows you to load impulses stored in WAV and AIFF audio files, and also offers you a selection of built-in impulses including vintage spring reverb.

Chorus offers you a stereo chorus plug-in which features 8 operators (4 for each output channel) creating together a huge and convincingly-sounding chorus applicable to vocals, guitars and synth instruments.
