Free lo-fi simulation plug-in for the classic vinyl sound.

Framingham, MA (January 2, 2001) – IZOTOPE, INC. has released iZotope Vinyl, a free lo-fi simulation plug-in for DirectX host applications.

  • Scratch - The number and depth of scratches on the record
  • Warp - The amount of warping and the warp shape for the record - from no warp to the edges totally melted and warped.
  • Record Player Year - The year of the record player - from current linear tracking turntables to 1930 honographs
  • Stereo/Mono - Switch between stereo and mono output
  • Input and Output Gain - Set the gain in and out of the effect with visual level meter feedback
