(where T stands for “troll”)
I had a part in great discussion about “wider” sound of analogue consoles. Check upcoming AudioTechnology Magazine issue, BTW. During this discussion I developed some kind of proof of concept plugin just to check possible reasons of wider sound. This developed plugin acts very subtle so most people just can’t notice its action! That’s why it’s “troll plugin”. You can use it for this purpose 😉
Add this plugin to each track and bus of your mix and feel analog vibe added!
Technically, the plugin applies very small amount of random EQ to L & R channels, adds very small amount of 2nd harmonic, adds small level of white noise and slightly widens frequencies around 10 kHz. Also it has “Gain” control and thus can be used as smooth gain fader.
