Igor Vasiliev has release an updated to the super awesome VintageRack which include 4 new modules and extended options for the existing modules.
Here’s what’s new:
- Added spring reverb with the most interesting springs and tube preamp with tonestack.
- Added module realistically simulates three classic Wah stompboxes controlled by an envelope or LFO.
- Added module that simulates two vintage exciters with harmonic bass enhancer.
- Added module with options for classic formant filter, ring modulator with formant carrier tone and formant voice synth controlled by pitch detector.
- The Fuzz module has got a new option of the well-known distortion device.
- An existing module called AutoWah renamed to AutoFilter. The new module was named AutoWah (presets will not be lost).
- Also made some improvements and fixed a few minor bugs.
- App description has been updated. The description is also available on the site as PDF file.
VintageRack is a minimalistic and convenient multi-effect application that contains modules realistically simulating notable retro gear from the early digital age with their natural lo-fi and warm aesthetics. Most of the effects in this application have been inspired and based on the principles of actual hardware from the 70s and 80s, which is great for giving the sound of any instrument the nostalgic and emotional mood of old recordings.
This application has a clean and intuitive user interface with a well-considered structure. All controls are located on the main screen, which is divided into seven slots for processing (effect) modules. The first slot contains the module for controlling the input, the last one is for controlling the output. Each of the five slots in between are designed to use one of the effect modules. The input signal passes from the first to the last slot and is then sent to the output.
Each slot has a Master Fader that controls the presence of the effect, and a Mute button that smoothly turns the effect on and off. These controls are available to be assigned to a MIDI controller, or to use as audio unit parameters regardless of the type of module in the slot. Also in each slot, there is a Parameters button that opens a panel of additional parameters for each module. Additional parameters of modules are kept to a minimum and represent the most suitable use cases.
The key idea behind application control is to first adjust the parameters of modules, and then use only the Master Fader to change the presence or depth of the effect and the Mute button to turn it on and off. Everything is geared towards fast and easy use.
Another great feature of VintageRack is the ability to set a lower bit depth of processed signal, typical for early digital devices, both for the entire path and for individual modules. As with these devices, this application simulates pre- and post-processing of the analog signal both before and after the digital circuits with the addition of companders, emphasis and filters, which makes the sound similar to the real devices.
