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!

Logical3

Logical3Demo is a universal binary AU plugin and the definitive Airwindows 2-buss compressor! The way Logical transforms the sound is not subtle. It’s designed to glue the track but also provides a distinctive hit-record ‘presence’ to the highs, allowing a sweet spot to be found where everything really pops and communicates. This draws on all the […]

ADClip4

ADClip4Demo is a universal binary Audio Unit plugin, bringing together everything learned in the original ADClip and 3DClip plus new functionality for the best possible final-clipping plugin. It works by tracking what samples have clipped, and pulling back the onset and release samples that would have clipped, to transition between the two states more gracefully. ADClip […]

ToTape4

ToTape4Demo is a tape emulation AU universal binary plugin, and the next-generation Airwindows tape emulation. This one can go on the 2-buss! It operates by isolating all the factors in the sound that don’t sound like tape, refining them, and then taking them out of the source material with a single subtract—the input sound is otherwise […]

Iron Oxide 4

IronOxide4Demo is a tape emulation AU universal binary plugin. It’s old school tape emulation. Unlike ToTape, Iron Oxide 4 doesn’t present a realistic tape model with wide-range sound—instead, it traps in the sound in the lows and highs and lets you make it bark. This is the one for putting on isolated tracks and cranking out, […]

BussColors3

BussColors3Demo has eight models: Dark, Rock, Lush, Vibe, Holo, Punch, Steel and Tube. These originally came from sets of impulse responses by a guy at Noisevault, with his permission and blessing—over the years I’ve doctored the impulses until it’s algorithms building new impulses for every sample, on the fly. Because it runs on impulses, BussColors3 is […]

Console2

Console2Demo is the very latest in DAW large format analog console emulation- without the ‘tone color’ part, which is already being handled by Desk and BussColors. Does the idea of a ‘very latest’ without tone coloring surprise you? Console2 surprised me. Here’s the backstory. I’ve been working in this area for some time, and one thing […]

Desk3

Desk3Demo is a universal binary AU plugin that takes the original ‘Desk’ plugins to a new level! Unique modes of analog overload give the ultimate dial-a-warm. The ultimate Airwindows saturation yet, and 96K ready! Desk3 works really well as two things- as a ‘generic analog console sound’ with a really slick fat overdrive that can run […]

NC-17

NC-17Demo is a universal binary Audio Unit plugin that takes the lead in the new breed of loudenator plugins typified by the Slate FG-X, but louder, more musically coherent, much less CPU hungry and at one-fifth the price. (yes, that’s going to be considered the bar: this copy was written at a time when I had […]
