Cymatics has announced the release of Origin, a free vintage/lo-fi plugin for DAWs on Windows and macOS.
Origin will make your samples sound like they’re straight from an old tape machine.
The main knob is a resampler/bitcrusher with two special filters to make your samples sound “underwater” (this effect can often be heard in Drake songs).
The other four knobs are Tape Saturation, Noise, Movement, and Chorus. The Movement knob (or Wow/Flutter) has a special mode that uses a randomizer algorithm to create realistic tape pitch wobbles. The Chorus replicates the famous Juno 106 chorus sound and comes with two modes (low and fast). Finally, the tape saturation modes is modeled from vintage tape machines.
Origin is a VST/AU/AAX plugin (64 bit only) for DAWs and other plugin hosts on Windows and macOS. You can download it for free at Cymatics (requires an email address).
