Apogee announces Soft Limit plugin - FREE for a limited time
Friday July 1, 2022. 08:38 PM , from Gearslutz
Apogee releases the Soft Limit plug-in, bringing to our computers the tape emulation circuit that was the secret sauce in the famed Apogee AD Converters
Soft Limit has been an integral feature of Apogee converters since the AD-500, our first standalone A-D converter released in 1991. And now, for the very first time, this simple but highly effective analog tape emulation is available as a free audio plugin.
During development of the AD-500, we recognized that, while the new digital audio technology offered superior performance and lower distortion, the technical deficiencies of analog tape created a pleasing sound that engineers didn’t want to give up. And so Soft Limit was created, an analog circuit placed before the A-D conversion stage to gracefully round transients and add harmonic warmth.
Soft Limit has been a feature on pretty much every Apogee A-D converter since, from the AD-8000 to Symphony I/O to the latest Duet 3.
