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!


TPDF Dither

TL;DW: TPDF Dither. TPDFDither This kicks off a pretty big Airwindows project: porting all of my dither and noise shaping algorithms to VST for free. Technically, I have a for-pay plugin that contains them, and ought to wait for that funding goal: however, Ditherbox has always contained stuff that’s in other free plugins and serves […]


Righteous3Demo is a universal binary Audio Unit plugin for the 2-buss, and it is the first and only plugin that can do loudness maximization on YouTube AFTER they put in their ‘replay gain’ function. And it does it perfectly honest and legit, too, by delivering what Google wants: but optimized. It was originally designed to […]

RighteousDemo is a universal binary AU plugin and the ultimate high-resolution mix buss. It was made to produce mixes for Neil Young’s PONO music player. That means some very specific things about how it is to be used. It goes last on the 2-buss (you can run buss compression, but not limiting or clipping), and provides […]


DitherTo exists because dither’s not exactly a huge market segment, yet it’s important to getting digital tone with depth and spatiality. For that reason, I’ve picked two dithers out of what’s shipped with Ditherbox, and you can have top-quality boutique dither for free. You just can’t select whichever one you like, or switch to monitoring modes […]


DitherDemo is like a magnified version of dither. It shows you how dither works, up close and personal! Using this plugin, you can hear what the noise floor sounds like when various dither types are in use (including the Airwindows boutique dithers, and the Airwindows freebies in DitherTo). You can also hear truncation, flat dither, and […]


“I really dig the 16 bit Naturalize. It has made me wonder in surprise if I like the reduced version better than the 24 bit original.” Andrew Levine, Blumlein Records DitherboxDemo is a universal binary AU plugin supplying a wide range of unbeatable dithers! You get the traditional flat/TPDF plus High Gloss, Vinyl, Spatialize and Naturalize, […]
