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!

Console3Demo is the latest Airwindows digital mix buss replacement. That’s right: replacement. It’s not an emulation of anything in particular, it’s not a coat of sonic paint to slap on weak digital recordings, in fact it tries its best to have NO sound of its own and none of the tones you put through it […]


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 […]


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 […]


Desk2Demo is the earliest incarnation of Desk I’ve got available. It has the same controls as Desk3, namely Overdrive, Hi Choke, Power Sag, Frequency for the power sag, and Output Trim. I would think you’d want some other version but if this is the one you want, buy Desk and ask me for this in email, […]


BussColors2Demo brought gain trim controls to BussColors, enabled it to work with Console as a drop-in replacement for ConsoleChannel, and doubled the number of hardware models. Where BussColors had Rock, Lush, Punch and Tube (from impulses by SSL, Neve, API and Manley—revealed for those who dig through old posts! I’m still not marketing based on […]


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 […]


Note the date. BussColors was out in 2010. It’s based on console modeling plugins that were sold as the ‘Character bundle’ in 2007 (APIcolypse, Calibre, Cider, Elation, Logical, Luxor, Neverland, Precious). Airwindows has been developing virtual console modeling for quite a while, though it’s really the plugin-set Console itself that was the real breakthrough. However, […]
