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!

FarSpace2Demo was the second incarnation of FarSpace/NearSpace. Changes involved simplifying the processing, removing the antialiasing which was there to handle the anti-saturation code that got removed. During this period FarSpace changed its sound around pretty wildly while not being awesome. I’m going to encourage paying attention to reverbs like Space, PocketVerbs, and even FarSpace3, but this […]


ADT2Demo is a universal binary AU plugin to do Automatic Double Tracking- aka fixed flanging/chorusing, as used by the Beatles. Two independent delay taps for normal or inverted ADT, code from Console2 gives you analog-like richness and tone. As you probably know, ADT is simply a single delay tap, very quick. What makes my ADT special […]


ConsoleDemo was a huge innovation. Before this set of plugins, all my attempts to bring analog flavor to the digital buss were forms of coloration or saturation. The full spiel here can be found at the entry for Console2, where you can find the link to buy it: here, I’ll just talk about what changed and […]


Ed Is Dim. (read it backwards!) This is two plugins, one to convert to mid/side and the other to convert back. Put ANY OTHER plugin between them. Try Pressure, or Density! Using a saturator such as Density means that the mid channel will distort a lot quicker, boosting the side information. You can do striking things […]

Voice Of The Starship

Voice Of The Starship is a plugin designed to produce environment noise—not just natural, but unnatural environments. Namely, spaceship rumble, like what you heard in episodes of Star Trek. It defaulted to a seashore-like effect, with random surges that fall away again. In stereo, these ‘waves’ hit at different times on left and right. If […]


Out by the tumbleweeds of Texas there’s a mysterious Airwindows plugin that was created to bring a little added juice to guitars. It’s got two controls (Voicing and Intensity) and swaggers down the road without revealing its terrifying secrets to man, horse or coyote. Some say it brings a little extra ambience to things in […]


FarSpace began the series of reverbs culminating in Space (a long sequence of free upgrades and crossgrades for adopters this early!). It contained NearSpace, a matching reverb hard-coded to have shorter delay times. During this period FarSpace changed its sound around pretty wildly while not being awesome. I’m going to encourage paying attention to reverbs […]


StereoDoubler is a tricky little plugin that’s just a little glitchy and insane. What it does, is detune the input it’s given, so it can make one detuned copy hard right, and one hard left. There’s a dry/wet control to mix this with the input, which can be dual mono or whatever else you like (probably […]


StereoEnsemble is much humbler than Ensemble, its mono namesake. Where Ensemble produces a dense and unreal texture like old string ensembles, what StereoEnsemble produces is much simpler. It’s just a stereo-scattered bunch of reinforcements, that you can spread using the top control and mix dry/wet with the bottom control. It’s actually a half-decent simple room reverb, […]

Dual Mono Verbs

Verbs are my first reverb attempts. These freebies are unusual in several ways: first, they’re a lot like a complicated multiple-echo system with very little allpassing. Second, since they’re dual mono they’ll widen ambience since hard panned stereo sends automatically get a hard-panned return. Third, they’re set up so that you pick a different one to […]
