Analogflux is a suite of PC VST audio processing plug-ins designed to deliver sounds of analog days. In the core of these processors, Voxengo extensively used convolution processing to match the response of the original analog gear. This suite consists of TapeBus, Delay, Impulse, Insert and Chorus plug-ins.
The TapeBus plug-in recreates elements of the reel-to-reel tape sound. This includes saturation, modulation noise and smearing effects which are known for the 'analog' feel they bring to any audio recording. This plug-in also applies a selected impulse response taken by us from the existing tape machine.
The Delay plug-in models sound of an old analog delay module. Beside this it offers the user modern two-tap delay controls including separate pre-delay and feedback delay controls which together allow you to build ping-pong kind of echo soundscapes. The plug-in also contains a cross-feedback path between the channels which enables you to create some even more complex echo structures. The delay module also offers you a BPM control with the ability to sync it to the host tempo changes. And the most important thing is that you can choose the response of the delay module: from moderately bright to endlessly dark, taken from the real analog delay module.
The Insert plug-in is Voxengo's attempt to create a simple processor which could be inserted on any track to make it sound warmer. Beside the severe phase smearing this plug-in introduces, it also allows you to apply modulation noise of selectable strength.
The Impulse plug-in is a greatly simplified version of the Pristine Space 8-channel convolution processor. The Impulse plug-in is a two-channel convolution processor designed to be used on channel inserts and reverb sends. It allows you to load impulses stored in WAV and AIFF audio files, and also offers youa selection of built-in impulses including vintage spring reverb.
The Chorus plug-in offers you a stereo chorus plug-in which features 8 operators (4 for each output channel) for creating huge chorus sounds.
