Exciter and Enhancer Plugins Bundle

Type A and Type B, two extremely simple yet powerful plug-ins that AudioThing wants you to add to your arsenal now. Excite and Enhance your tracks. Know Your Type!!

  • Type A  is a plugin inspired by a famous vintage tape encoder. The original unit was designed to be a noise reduction system for tape recording (encode stage) and playback (decode stage).
  • Type B is a plugin inspired by a famous vintage exciter effect. Type B lets you control more aspects of the exciter circuit emulation, giving you access to the internal filter, the harmonic generator and more.

Type A

Type A is a plugin inspired by a famous vintage tape encoder. The original unit was designed to be a noise reduction system for tape recording (encode stage) and playback (decode stage).

Type A emulates the encode stage, which was often misused as an enhancer, dynamically increasing the top end of a signal without introducing artefacts or altering the harmonic content. The results are similar to a dynamic EQ which adds presence and air to any track in a natural way.

FEATURES:

  • Vintage Enhancer
  • Multi-band Compressor with 4 Bands
  • Adjustable Unit Noise
  • Oversample up to 16x
  • Resizable Window
  • Preset system with randomizer

ADDITIONAL FEATURES

You can show/hide the drop-down panel by clicking on the arrow icon in the bottom left corner of the interface.

You’ll get access to:

  • Volume for each band
  • Compressor Attack and Release
  • Noise volume
  • VU-Meter source selector

HOW DOES IT WORK?

To limit the amount of noise generated by tape recording, early noise reduction systems used what’s called a multi-band compander (compressor/expander). The unit dynamically emphasizes the high frequencies during the encoding stage (recording to tape), so that during the decoding stage (playback from tape) the signal is attenuated, along with the typical tape noise. Type A emulates the encoding stage only.

The input signal is split into 4 bands (with the highest bands overlapping), dynamically compressed and then summed back with the dry signal. The amount of compression on each band is inversely proportional to the volume of the band. Quieter sounds get brighter while louder sounds remain almost unchanged.

This adds brightness and air without generating any new harmonic content or distortion, resulting in a more pleasant and natural enhancer compared to a typical exciter.

NOISE REDUCTION OR ENHANCER?

Introduced in 1966 with the Dolby A301 first, and then in 1970 with the Dolby 361 (with the CAT 22 card, in photos), the A-Type noise reduction was quickly misused and modded by engineers to enhance their recordings by using the encoding stage only.

The most common mod consists in disabling the two lower bands so that only the high-frequency portion of the signal is compressed, giving even more air to vocals.

This technique was labeled with many names like the Vocal Trick, Stretch Mod, Vocal Stressor, and even the “John Lennon mod”.

Type B

VINTAGE EXCITER

Type B is a plugin inspired by a famous vintage exciter effect.

The original unit was designed to add presence and brightness to vocal or instrument tracks. It was often used to enhance dull recordings where the high frequency content was missing due to tape overdubs.

Type B lets you control more aspects of the exciter circuit emulation, giving you access to the internal filter, the harmonic generator and more.

MAIN FEATURES:

  • Vintage Exciter
  • HP/BP Filter with Emphasis
  • Adjustable Unit Noise
  • Oversample up to 16x
  • Resizable Window
  • Preset system with randomizer

ADDITIONAL FEATURES

You can show/hide the drop-down panel by clicking on the arrow icon in the bottom left corner of the interface.

You’ll get access to:

  • Filter controls: mode (pre/post), type (highpass, bandpass), slope (12/24dB), emphasis
  • Additional options: direct signal, wet boost, and background noise

HOW DOES IT WORK?

Exciters generate high-frequency content that is not part of the original signal using a combination of filtering and distortion (harmonic generator).

The input signal goes into a filter (usually highpass, but you can also choose bandpass with Type B) before feeding it into the harmonic generator.

You have controls over the generated harmonics using the Color parameter. The signal is then mixed back with the dry signal.

Windows XP SP2 or later / OSX 10.6.8 or later Intel Core 2 Duo 2GHz or equivalent 2 GB RAM / 500 MB
