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!

News

Regarding Patreon

As of Wednesday the 13th, 2017, Patreon announced that they’re not going to do this. I’ll follow up whenever we get the new numbers, if we even do: this may have burned them hard enough that they’ll not attempt anything of the sort again. I’ll be interested to know if there’s any benefit to larger […]

HermeTrim

TL;DW: Very Fine Adjustments. HermeTrim If you’ve seen EveryTrim, you know how this works: it’s the all-possible-trims trim. +- 12dB of left, right, mid, side, and master volume. By request, and a handy little tool for all manner of stereo tweaking. It’s very nearly as clear and accurate as PurestGain, which itself is very nearly […]

Everything Is All Fixed Forever

:D Okay, maybe not, but if you’ve ever had an issue with an Airwindows ‘Patreon era’ plugin eating extra CPU… I’ve developed a thorough denormal-numbers fix that ought to work on any CPU, any DAW, quite intelligently with very low overhead. Some (not all) DAWs needed this: if an audio region ended and the plugins […]

Why I’m Kind Of Stuck Running Youtube Advertising

TL;DW: They’re a monopoly and I expect them to quietly blacklist and suppress anybody NOT running Youtube Advertising. As you might imagine, on YouTube this video is known as ‘Why To Run Youtube Ads’. Follow along with my reasoning in the video, and you might come to the same conclusion: you’ve got to put across […]

Crush All Boxes for Patrons

TL;DW: all patrons get to use my lifetime in music royalty-free! Crush All Boxes: Royalty-Free Music (Bandcamp page will contain hi-res versions for $1) Many times, listeners to my plugin videos have said, “This is terrible music, and you shouldn’t do it!” :D Other times, people have said, “I like that, where can I get […]

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 […]

Console4

Console 4 is the most recent version of basically my flagship Airwindows plugin. It works through a channel plugin on every sound source, feeding at unity gain into the buss plugin which overrides the digital summing with Airwindows summing (more internal space, more depth, and with Console 4 it now has glue making the top-end […]

Airwindows On (Mac) Pro Tools!

Every now and then you run across something that tells you: hey! You’re not alone, there are others who see things as you do! For years now, I’ve been developing Audio Units, just the audio code. That way they always work and won’t break, and I can focus my attention on the sound. I always […]

128_Jackhammer

Introducing 32 Bar And Grill! 128_Jackhammer is a collection of loops—Airwindows style. You can find an example of what I can do with these loops here. They’re ten bucks, not fifty like the Audio Units, and they don’t get updates, I just won’t repeat any of the files ever. Why buy loops from Airwindows of […]

Welcome to the completed site rebuild!

Here’s where I rebuilt the whole site in classier, searchable, organized form… and added thirty free Audio Unit plugins. A big day! (can you find them? They include some truly amazing secret weapons. I could tell you which, but then they wouldn’t be a secret, would they?)

If you’re pledging the equivalent of this per year, I’ll happily link you on the sidebar, including a link to your music or project! Quite a few people see this page, and they see it while they’re getting free stuff, so they ought to be favorably disposed to anyone here!
