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.

Iron Oxide 4

IronOxide4Demo is a tape emulation AU universal binary plugin. It’s old school tape emulation.

These are the tape effects, not there to be radically reinvented each year. If you like this one best, […]

Iron Oxide 2

IronOxide2Demo is the version of Iron Oxide that introduced separate controls for the top and bottom cutoffs of the plugin. It’s got input and output gains, and also was the first Iron Oxide to introduce antialiasing, which it does in an interesting way: it’s applying randomness to the ‘blur’ between adjacent samples, which is a trick […]

Iron Oxide

IronOxideDemo was the start of a whole lot! This plugin helped launch Airwindows. It’s an old school tape sim, by which I mean it’s ‘bandpassy’ and distorted. Back in the day, people considered that to be the sound of a ‘tape plugin’. Iron Oxide was largely created as a sort of crusade. I had friends who […]

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!
