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!



CStripDemo is the Airwindows channel strip! 32bit/64bit/PPC Audio Unit, with EQ, compression, gate, highpass, lowpass and timing trim, CStrip is the go-to toolbox for any track. All the parts not in use switch themselves out of the circuit, so you can engage only the parts you need. They’re designed to work together perfectly, interleaved in the […]


EQDemo existed for a little while before it got rolled into CStrip, the Airwindows channel strip! It’s the backbone of CStrip. It’s got Airwindows-style high/mid/low controls, highpass and lowpass, and sweepable crossover points (note: not center points, crossover points). If you’d like this, you may as well get CStrip and you’ll have it—but if you want […]


EnergyDemo is unusual. Special algorithms exploit secret interactions with the sample rate to produce hot, vivid colorations loaded with crackling energy. Not your DAW’s EQ by a long, long shot. Doesn’t exist anywhere else in any form… This has become my ultimate ‘hyping’ EQ tool, and it comes complete with descriptive names for each band. Note: […]


Sable is like a really early, failed CStrip. It’s got a lowpass and highpass like CStrip, and two peaks. The thing is, these peaks are very narrow and only work in the midrange, and the lowpass and highpass don’t sound as good as CStrip’s. So, Sable isn’t really a very good general purpose EQ, much less […]


Shelves is another strange little Airwindows EQ. This one’s a simple two-band shelf… that’s all Airwindows-ized in subtle ways. The crossover’s altered in the way that Highpass and Lowpass are. As near as I can work out, what’s happening is that if you boost Treble, it gets harder. If you cut it, it gets softer. If […]


Scalpel is an early attempt at a ‘surgical’ EQ meant to sound better than using a DAW’s internal DSP-cookbook EQ. It sort of almost works. What it does is, give you three very narrow and intense beams of resonant filter, coded the same way ResEQ is coded. Instead of building a sound entirely out of these […]


ChannelEQ is an early four-band fixed-frequency EQ. It uses pretty normal EQ code—okay, I lied, it’s not really very normal at all. The basic EQ code isn’t that unusual, but it’s two separate EQs interleaved (a common Airwindows trick). The bands are built up in such a way that if it’s zeroed out, it’s passing unaltered […]


TapeFat is a little plugin that just does one thing: it’s variations on the tone stack inside the first Iron Oxide, and is the same sort of thing you get in Tape Delay. Works similarly to BrightAmbience in that settings with fewer taps take less CPU and do less processing. It’s based on prime numbered delay […]

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!
