"**Which iZotope plug-ins do you use, and how do you use them?** Oh man, do you have a week? I've been a diehard fan since Vinyl. Beginning with my 2012 #digitalfreedom release, I've mastered all of my releases with Ozone Advanced; currently I don't even go take a leak without putting Ozone Maximizer on it first. I put Ozone Exciter into my morning coffee instead of sugar. Ozone Imager is literally my only friend, the only one who truly understands me and cares about my feelings."more
Yeah, fun way to make a pretend vinyl record. I made a whole album of acoustic blues and roughed it up and pretended it was recorded in 1935. Warp mode sometimes unavailable for some reason.
If you're going for a vinyl effect, this is a very good free VST to use. You can adjust the wear, the age of the vinyl, how scratched it is and more, so you can tell it's got some great customization abilities.
I give her 3 stars because, though she provides a relatively convincing and tweakable vinyl sound I just find it to be cheesy to add fake crackle and pop so overtly,e ven when doing scratch effects on freshly recorded audio in the box. I use her once in a while, but there's something that rubs me the wrong way about adding noise back into pristine audio. Limiting bandwidth and headroom with speaker simulation or a telephone fitler is one thing, but soemthign about this justs creams inauthentic. but I have it and it tempts me from time to time. I used in an intro recently but tis was very subtle.
