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!

Zero Latency

PurestEcho

TL;DW: Optimized Airwindows echo with a twist! PurestEcho Here’s a nice little addition to the Purest line of Airwindows plugins (minimal, stripped down, extremely deep and rich tone in simple and uncompromised ways). PurestEcho gives you four echoes, sample-averaged to deliver extremely precise timing, each with its own tap. That means you can use it […]

BussColors 4

TL;DW: The Airwindows console emulations, now working up to 192K correctly. BussColors4 I’m very pleased to bring you the latest version of BussColors :) This plugin’s a pretty huge deal: it’s been around since before console emulations were a thing, and I’ve been steadily working on it year after year. There’s not been much to […]

Iron Oxide Classic

TL;DW: Old school tape emulation, extra pure and free of grunge. Iron Oxide Classic As promised, here is the 2017-ized version of the pure, sweet, original Iron Oxide. No more grit or tape flutter or noise! It’s funny how this works. If you’re a commercial developer, and you release a plugin that’s real popular, one […]

Air

TL:DW; A different bright EQ from any other. Air Digital EQ is a series of trade-offs. You can have a general effect with a simple calculation, or a more complicated effect with more calculation, or you can just bury the audio in calculation and get something very precise which unfortunately is just a huge pile […]

Loud

TL:DW; Distortion and demolition of air molecules, modeled. Loud Here’s something rather special. What if you could distort like air molecules distort? I studied recordings of competitive tractor pulls, of Space Shuttle launches, various recordings that represented the way air can be mangled and break apart. The result is Loud… a step into a much […]

High Impact

TL:DW; Grit and punch without fatness. HighImpact Sometimes it’s all in the name. High Impact has been one of the Airwindows secret weapons for a long time. It’s a pretty basic idea: know how Density distorts and makes audio huge and fat, and Drive distorts and doesn’t make stuff as fat? High Impact answers the […]

SideDull

TL:DW; Like a highpass on the side channel, except it’s a lowpass. SideDull There are some nice things about Patreon-era Airwindows. Not the money: that sucks, though I think I just about have basic survival taken care of as long as I don’t eat much and nothing happens to my car :) No, the cool […]

Surge

TL:DW; Compressor for accentuating beats and pulses. Surge What is ‘ballistics’ when it comes to audio gear? It’s the way the gear handles dynamics coming in. It’s the swing of a VU meter that can tell you what your music feels like. Or, since this is Airwindows and we don’t do no steenkin’ meters, ballistics […]

DC Voltage

TL:DW; Literally control voltages for digital workstations, because why not? DCVoltage This is exactly what it says on the tin. Do NOT just put this in a mix and crank it up to see what it’ll do. If your whole system is DC-coupled you will blow your woofers, just like that, after a big ‘whump’. […]

Hermepass

TL:DW; Mastering highpass to set by ear only! Hermepass This is specially by request from Gregg of Hermetech Mastering: it’s my try at a specific plugin he wanted. He wasn’t able to find a fantastic-sounding highpass with JUST a frequency control and slope, no bling, no other stuff, as small as possible. This is of […]
