Airwindows is one guy: me! I am an audio hacker and computer programmer from way back. I seek only to continue my life up here in Vermont, inventing things and putting them onto the internet, sometimes for free and sometimes for pay. My hope is that people richer than me (i.e. most people) don't rob me. My other hope is for another cup of Aeropress. One out of two ain't bad!

StarChild

TL;DW: A weird digital ambience! StarChild For all that we try to make plugins have natural, acoustic or electric, retro vibe qualities, sometimes there’s a thing which breaks the rules by creating a distinctive voice that has nothing to do with naturalness. I’ve got an old Alesis reverb like that: very primitive, but deep as […]

Desk4

TL;DW: Distinctive analog coloration. Desk4 Though I’ve put out BussColors to mimic existing audio hardware, it was always my intention to create analog-ifying plugins that weren’t about cloning existing gear: that produced their own distinctive sound. The first Desk plugins (Desk, TransDesk, TubeDesk) were made in this way, using audio DSP which isn’t typical. As […]

TapeDust

TL;DW: Just a special treble-erode noise. TapeDust Sometimes it’s good to have just a little specialty plugin that does a useful thing. Hard to do that in the commercial plugin biz, where everything has to be the biggest hype to date: but hey! Thanks to Patreon I’m free of all that, and can follow my […]

FromTape

TL;DW: A minimalist analog tape emulation. FromTape Here’s something more… refined. FromTape was originally conceived as a ‘bump-less’ ToTape. It appeared with the original ToTape, and then with ToTape3, as a stripped-down version without the head bump, intended as very much the same thing but less bass. In some ways that’s still true. But, as […]

AQuickVoiceClip

TL;DW: Soften headset mic recordings that have been super hard clipped on capture. AQuickVoiceClip I hope this is handy for somebody: I made it for myself. The idea is, if you’re a youtuber or something and have the ability to post-process your mic feed, you might have it set up so normal levels give a […]

ToTape5

TL;DW: The highest quality Airwindows analog tape emulation. ToTape5 ToTape5 is the best Airwindows analog tape emulation. It builds upon the previous four versions (which have been some of my best sellers) and incorporates everything learned from the Purest series of plugins, to produce a tape emulation that does what analog does. (Analog tape does […]

PurestEcho

TL;DW: Optimized Airwindows echo with a twist! PurestEcho Here’s a nice little addition to the Purest line of Airwindows plugins (minimal, stripped down, extremely deep and rich tone in simple and uncompromised ways). PurestEcho gives you four echoes, sample-averaged to deliver extremely precise timing, each with its own tap. That means you can use it […]

BussColors 4

TL;DW: The Airwindows console emulations, now working up to 192K correctly. BussColors4 I’m very pleased to bring you the latest version of BussColors :) This plugin’s a pretty huge deal: it’s been around since before console emulations were a thing, and I’ve been steadily working on it year after year. There’s not been much to […]

Iron Oxide Classic

TL;DW: Old school tape emulation, extra pure and free of grunge. Iron Oxide Classic As promised, here is the 2017-ized version of the pure, sweet, original Iron Oxide. No more grit or tape flutter or noise! It’s funny how this works. If you’re a commercial developer, and you release a plugin that’s real popular, one […]

Bite

TL;DW: An unusual edge-maker. Bite This plugin is a weird little science experiment. I’ve got Iron Oxide Classic coming, but I still have to make a video for it and get it ready (and do the other offshoot TapeDust) and this one was ready to go, so here it is :) Bite puts on a […]
