Today we are featuring the mixing/atmospherics tool VinylSound. VinylSound is a VST from RancorSoft which plays back the ambient sounds of vinyl records. There are a variety of “feels” preloaded, and the instrument is definitely a fun one to play with. It has a speed control that is much like the speed slider of a real turntable, except it has a much larger range than most, allowing you to also get fast forward, backspin and rewind effects out of it. Cool stuff. Highly recommended for anyone who wants to get an old school sound out with new digital recording equipment. Mixing your choice vinyl atmosphere at a low volume is a great way to put just that right amount of grit in to your recordings, and make them stand out from the overly-clean and cheesy.
Full feature list:
13 pre-loaded vinyl pop, click and crackle loops
+100% to -100% speed control
Master volume control
Available in Windows EXE and Windows 32bit VST
