Free Plugin Of The Week – Izotope Vinyl VST|RTAS

Every Monday I highlight free plugins new and old that are worth checking out. See all posts in the Free Plugin Of The Week Series.

iZotope Vinyl

iZotope Vinyl

This is not a new plugin, but it is one of my favorites, mostly because I love that crackle on vinyl records. I like it on drum loops, synth basses and even guitars. The only thing with this plugin is it has only one purpose, but it does it very well, just don’t over use it.

“The ultimate lo-fi weapon, iZotope Vinyl uses 64-bit processing and advanced filtering, modeling and resampling to create authentic “vinyl” simulation, as if the audio was a record being played on a record player.”

It works on both Mac and Windows systems, in RTAS/AudioSuite/HTDM, VST, MAS, Audio Unit, DirectX formats. It supports sample rates of up to 192 kHz, and is fully automatable.

    Yes, this is a great plug. And for you hip hop heads, producer Just Blaze uses the plug according to an interview I read about 2 weeks ago.
    See “Jay Z – Show Me What You Got”.
