The Spin Down button

The Spin Down button simulates slowly stopping playback of a record, modulating both playback speed and frequency. When used on the master bus, it can provide a dramatic overall effect as if someone has stopped the record playing. Within the context of a mix, it can add a unique but familiar effect when used on individual instruments or busses.

Lo-fi vocal sound

Vinyl can be loaded onto a vocal track for an interesting lo-fi sound, especially to contrast the richer vocal on a verse or chorus that comes afterwards. In this example, Vinyl is adding grit and dirt to the lead vocal during the bridge of a song.

Old radio sound

You can use Vinyl in film and television for treating audio to sound like it's coming from a vintage on-screen source. In this example, Vinyl is being used to make a song sound as if it is being played from an old radio.
