Reason Audiomatic

Instagram filters for audio is how Propellerheads are explaining their new Rack Audiomatic. With presets like VHS, Tape and Gadget it’s similar in idea to Audioease’s Speakerphone (which I own and use often). I basically want most of my audio sounding like it was recorded off a VHS tape. That really makes no sense I know.

“Audiomatic Retro Transformer is a psycho-acoustic future retro effect, inspired by the photo apps in your phone. Add Audiomatic to any instrument, channel or group — or the whole mix — and select one of the 16 snapshots: VHS, vinyl, gadget or even mp3, to instantly sprinkle audio magic over your tracks.” – propellerheads.se

80s VHS effects

Here’s a video showing how to use Audioease’s Speakerphone to create 80s VHS type warble and distortion. I’ve had my eye on Speakerphone for a while and well now I own it (thanks Torley!).

“A bad GSM connection on a busy sidewalk, a bullhorn with feedback and a helicopter overhead, or a 1952 rockabilly guitar amp in a recording studio live room: The Speakerphone audio plug-in gives you authentic speakers of any size together with their natural environments.” – audioease.com
