Strings by AudioThing is a spring vintage reverb plug-in with a great collection of vintage reverbs merged into a Baxandall EQ emulation. It features and mimics 8 types of spring reverbs, from a long 6-spring pipe to a small battery-powered single-spring unit. Furthermore, AudioThings uses a combination of convolution and display to reproduce the vintage character of each reverb.
More About Baxandall EQ and Strings
We often combine spring reverbs with tone stacks from guitar intensifiers. Strings, on the other hand, highlights one of the most famous and special sounding tone stack equalizers: the Baxandall EQ. A classic Baxandall tone stack ordinarily highlights the bass and treble groups, but we have also included a Mid band (with control over the Q). The Baxandall EQ may be, at a glance, a classic EQ such as those found in guitar amps, constrained to a single tone control or two groups (bass and treble). However, we included a third band (mid with Q control) to shape the reverb sound advance. In addition, a vital characteristic of the Baxandall EQ is that the groups are associated with each other. This could seem like an undesirable behavior, but it’s one of the reasons why the Baxandall EQ bends are smooth and melodic.
How Do Spring Reverbs Improve Your Sound?
A spring reverb is an electromechanical gadget that employs transducers/pickups with steel springs to recreate the reflections of a reverb. The input flag passes through a transducer to one or numerous springs, the vibrations are, at that point, captured by a yield transducer on the inverse side. As a result, using numerous springs of diverse sizes and distinctive thickness creates a curiouser and wealthier reverb sound. The system requirements for this plug-in are for Windows users at least Windows XP OS or later, and for Mac users OSX 10.6.8 or newer.
