Introducing Vinyl – the ultimate lo-fi weapon for music production and audio for film or television

Vinyl is a plug-in that simulates the dust, scratches, and warp of a worn record and the electrical and mechanical noise of the turntable it’s on. With unparalleled ease of use and authentic, lo-fi vibes, Vinyl is the perfect tool for adding character-filled artifacts and classic tone to your production in seconds.


  • Warp: Choose the amount of warping and the warp shape for the record—from no warp to totally melted and warped edges
  • Dust: Simulates the amount of dust that has settled on the surface of the record
  • Year: Models record players from different decades using filter responses
  • Wear: Simulates the effect of a record that’s been played too many times, from brand new to a few thousand spins
  • Mechanical Noise: Adds turntable rumble and motor noise
  • Spin Down: Simulate the sound of slowly stopping playback of a record, modulating both playback speed and frequency

System Requirements:

  • Mac OS: macOS 10.13.6 High Sierra – macOS 11 Big Sur, Audio Unit / AAX (64-bit) / VST / VST3 compatible DAW
  • Windows: Win 8 / 10, AAX (64-bit) / VST / VST3 compatible DAW

Please note: Vinyl is not a standalone application. It is a plug-in that requires a compatible DAW to run.

Comprehensive DAW support:

With integrated support for most modern host applications, Vinyl is sure to have a place in your workflow. Treat the audio for your picture to make it sound as if it’s coming from an authentic on-screen old-fashioned source. Get an old radio sound that’s still musically accurate by adding hiss, crackle, and saturation without adding warble to it. With Vinyl’s digital emulation of the real thing, you can dial in as much or as little as you want for a level of flexibility that’s impossible with hardware.

The best lo-fi sound for any situation:

The lo-fi sound of Vinyl can be used to create a section of your mix that sounds like it’s from a different era. With low CPU overhead, Vinyl is light on resources and can be used in even the most complex productions. Give fresh recordings and instrument tracks the dirty, dusty feel of an earlier decade or add just a warble effect without introducing a high noise floor. Try the new Lo-fi feature to add the signature tone of 80s hip-hop resampling. Apply Vinyl to any source audio to make it sound as if it’s being played from a record and dial in exactly the right character to suit your tune. In a musical context, use Vinyl to shape your mix, to create an effective counterpoint that plays against another huge or wide section of your arrangement.
