Audio editing with vintage effects


Apply an 80s-style “lo-fi” sound to drum loops or synthesizers. With bit and sample rate reduction plus a filter based on an analog model, the Bitmachine takes your audio on an acoustic journey through time.


The chorus effect creates that “floating” sound familiar from guitar or synth pads. Add fuller sound and depth to an instrument and create the illusion that several instruments are playing simultaneously.

Analog Delay

The analog delay effect enables creative playing styles along with common delay effects. Modify delay times while playing an instrument – artifact-free – and replicate typical band echo sounds.


A “high gain” distorter for crunch and lead guitar sounds, which is modeled on a full tube preamp circuit. Distortion is perfect for “British” amplifier sounds and easy, fast recording of guitar tracks.


Filter is an excellent effect for modulation. It offers various filter types and modulation times for controlling the frequency response of a modulation source and can be used to create “wah-wah” effects on guitars, for instance.


The flanger effect allows you to creatively distort the frequency spectrum for an instrument and is often used for guitar and drum sounds. This effect, also known as comb filter, has also achieved huge popularity in genres such as techno and house.

Restoration and mastering

High-quality restoration tools allow you to optimize the sound of old records. Create captivating video soundtracks and create broadcast and streaming-ready CD masters and mixes.
