Chris

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!

Dimensional Kicks/Hats/Snares for Patrons

https://www.patreon.com/airwindows I’ve been asked to do something that’s only available to my patrons, but I’m not willing to do that with my plugin software. Therefore, I’m doing it with samples, because I can! These are collections of kicks, hats and snares, for EDM or sample augmentation. They’re tracker-style, not ‘simulation’ style, meaning they use no […]

ADClip6

ADClip6Demo is a universal binary Audio Unit plugin for loudness maximization. While it can be used for clean peak-clipping, and is great for that, if the words ‘competitive loudness’ make you sad, stop reading now. Still here? OK. Here’s the deal: ADClip was already one of the most formidable weapons for loudness. The last version, […]

Compresaturator

CompresaturatorDemo is a universal binary Audio Unit plugin (PPC/32/64 intel) that uses a completely original algorithm: not really a distortion, not really a compressor, it’s kind of both! Dial in qualities unachievable with normal dynamics processors! Here’s how it works. It starts with the classic Airwindows ‘softest possible saturation’, as found in PurestDrive. This is […]

StarChild

StarChildDemo is a universal binary Audio Unit plugin (PPC, 32 bit Intel and 64 bit Intel) that does a variation on the old Ursa Minor Space Station, but different. It’s a high purity stereo-only rendition of a raw and grainy antique digital spacemaker, all vibe! Here’s how it works. Back in the really crude old […]

Aura

AuraDemo is a universal binary Audio Unit plugin (PPC/32/64 bit AU, for Mac) for dialing in the sparkle or sonority of a sound. It gives a kind of presence peak never done before in software, along with attenuation past that peak. Defaults to natural tone, or exaggerate it for hype! Here’s how it works, and […]

OneCornerClip

OneCornerClipDemo is a universal binary Audio Unit plugin (PPC/32/64 bit AU, for Mac) and one of the coolest things I’ve done in years. It’s basically a special clipper where you can RADICALLY shape the tone of extremely distorted output without so much as touching any samples that aren’t clipped. The voicing control has a huge […]

ADClip5

ADClip5Demo is a universal binary Audio Unit plugin for loudness maximization. Bear in mind that CDs and Loudness War are going out of date and you don’t necessarily want loudness maximization anymore! I’ve made several versions of Righteous for aiming a mix/mastering at targets like YouTube or anywhere that applies replay gain. Though ADClip is […]

Righteous3

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 […]

Gatelope2

Gatelope2Demo is a universal binary Audio Unit plugin for the 2-buss. Sound coming in triggers a gate which sweeps two very transparent and natural filters across each other to cut off the sound. Can cut mostly treble for toms, or tighten bass on kicks and snares. Startlingly useful! This plugin was inspired by Ola Sonmark, […]

Kit B

Kit_B is an EXS24 sampler instrument, a heavy, ambient, darker kit with tons of multisampling and a very quiet background. It’s a little more open and ringy than Kit A. Check out the video for more!
