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!

Kit A

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

Righteous 2

Righteous2Demo is a universal binary Audio Unit plugin for the 2-buss. It can be used on Mac DAWs like Logic and Ableton Live, Reaper and Digital Performer. It can be used in Pro Tools if you use the wrapper plugin Patchwork from Blue Cat Audio (79$). And it is the first and only plugin that […]

PurestWarm

PurestWarmDemo is a universal binary Audio Unit plugin, and another really extreme example of the Airwindows ‘Purest’ series of plugins. To explain why, I need to explain what it does. It’s for individual tracks, and I do NOT recommend using it on a full mix, even though like PurestDrive it is ‘invisible’ and at its […]

ElectroHat (revised!)

ElectroHatDemo is a universal binary Audio Unit plugin on a mission: it intends to take the place of samples and vintage drum machines, turning any old rhythmic sound into a crisp synthetic and very electronic hi-hat! It’s been revised to work more elegantly with 88.2 and 96K sessions, and the tone’s been adjusted so it […]

PurestSquish

PurestSquishDemo is a compressor Audio Unit plugin for maximum transparency and organic squishiness! I’ve designed it for the 2-buss, but it’ll work for many things. It’s got two basic modes: you can use it very gently to ‘float’ the mix elements in a barely perceptible way, or you can lean into it harder for more […]

DeEss3

DeEss3Demo is the latest DeEss: returning to the unrivalled sound of the first classic Airwindows DeEss, but with 80-bit internal math and a new Sense Monitoring switch, by request! This is the ultimate De-Esser, now with new ease of use and deeper tone. This plugin’s made a lot of interesting friends… very competitive, significant friends […]

Console3

Console3Demo is the latest Airwindows digital mix buss replacement. That’s right: replacement. It’s not an emulation of anything in particular, it’s not a coat of sonic paint to slap on weak digital recordings, in fact it tries its best to have NO sound of its own and none of the tones you put through it […]

PurestDrive

PurestDriveDemo is unusual, even startling. What’s the deal with suddenly putting out the simplest imaginable softclip/saturation… not even a safety clipper, ADClip does that… for $50? It’s about the tone—and it’s about the R&D. PurestDrive is a sort of science project, and it’s using some Airwindows techniques at a level I’ve never before attempted, to produce […]

ToVinyl3

ToVinyl3Demo  is a universal binary AU plugin to center and accentuate bass, such as you’d do for vinyl mastering or to make an electronic music mix more efficient over a large PA system. You can cut side-channel bass and tighten and control the extreme lows in the middle, with great-sounding Airwindows filters. Also, ToVinyl 3 includes […]

Noise

NoiseDemo is a universal binary AU plugin for generating naturalistic environment noise, which you can use in sound design for video, or as a texture for music. You have four different tone shaping controls: a lowpass that can chase the envelope of the input sound, two highpass-related controls hooked to the guts of the noise generator […]
