Airwindows is one guy: me! I am an audio hacker and computer programmer from way back.

This draws on all the […]

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 […]

ShortBuss

ShortBuss was a very interesting experiment. The idea was to build a mix buss that did not ‘slam’, but added fullness. This was done by measuring how much was being saturated in a very soft and gentle overdrive, saving that up, and applying it as second harmonic so the fullness wasn’t lost. There’s also acceleration […]
