Most BPB readers are already familiar with AudioThing’s innovative audio effects. The company specializes in developing plugins that either emulate rare vintage gear or bring something completely new to the table.

The Effect Bundle contains all 27 audio effects developed by AudioThing. It’s a long list, so we’ll take a closer look at some of our favorite AudioThing plugins.

“The Effect Bundle features all AudioThing Effects plugins (VST/AU/AAX) with a 60% discount. Ranging from vintage valve emulation to complex convolution processing, this bundle is perfect for every kind of composer, producer, and sound designer.”

Outer Space emulates the famous Roland RE-201 Space Echo. If you like vintage tape echoes, this plugin is a must-have. AudioThing simulates the original unit down to the detail, including all the analog tape imperfections and saturation properties.

Wires is an emulation of a 1970s Soviet wire recorder. Now that’s something you definitely don’t already have in your plugin arsenal.

Things – Motor is a morphing rotor effect. It uses side-chaining to combine signals in new and interesting ways.

Things – Bubbles is the latest AudioThing plugin, and it’s available as a FREE bonus with any purchase during the Black Friday sale. It is an innovative sound design tool based on a filterbank delay.

  1. Picking a favorite sound design tool is so hard.
    Here’s a quick summary of what I feel after 20+ years using and testing a lot of music software.

    Control over sound is what makes music unique, allowing us to shape our creations.
    I like to use several kinds of distortion plugins to give my sounds “life”, I use the BPB distortion tool, and also recently like Tritik Krush as it offers very interesting modulation options.
    Apogee Soft Limit does add great warmth with an easy interface.

    The two schools of visual or no visual indication of what we tweak are still there for tools like EQs. I personally like to see, but I always remind myself to listen attentively!

    Lately with the release of master plugins like Waves Studio Rack we finally get to build and reuse complex plugin chains. For example I am most disappointed when a plugin does not have a wet/dry knob. I know it’s not common for many plugins but in these days when we can stick a guitar amp on a synth for extra distortion it would be great to dial it down for parallel processing. The Waves plugin allows to do that and so much more, nice utility.

    Another type of feature that I like to use are LFOs for building “automatic automation” and I’d really like to see companies pay attention to the modulation side of their plugins. Most users will not just tweak and forget, but instead will seek to inject life by automating settings. Having LFOs and fun mathematical/drawing based control over parameters is an awesome way to inject life into a sound. I feel Melda audio plugins have built a phenomenal and probably way underused system with their Modulators. Utterly creative !!! Audiothing Dials seem to have such an LFO built in and it’s very much something I’d love to try on my guitars and synths.

    I also see interesting innovation coming from Ujam with the way they integrate so much functionality in all their plugins yet with useable and fun interfaces. They create plugins that have a direct focus on helping make music, as opposed to “plugins with features”.
    Valhalla SuperMassive is also fabulous, extremely versatile and I like having written tips on the interface, it’s really useful for us users to get reminded of how to use the plugins!

    A word about presets. It’s essential to have a ratings system or to be able to remove presets as there’s very much unusable stuff in most of the plugins I use or test. Best systems allow to rate or highlight and even discard presets we don’t like. A plugin with many presets that does not offer all of those options will get annoying to use. Also, best to curate presets as it can make or break a plugin. Most users go through presets to test. I’ve been particularly disappointed with some instrument synths from a big brand that had so many awfully unmusical unusable presets. Quite a mood killer.

    A word about interfaces. I’ve learnt to live with both analog style GUIs and the very plain ones. Whilst I favour the pretty ones, I do however really like scalable GUIs as it’s so helpful to focus clearly on one plugin on my second widescreen curved monitor. Everything has to be very readable please ! And easy to assign midi controllers ..

    Finally, I’d like to get the Audiothing package because I’m working so hard on writing and producing my first album. I’d pushing myself doing everything by myself. I’d like to get the best tools to sculpt and mix my tunes. I feel with the Audiothing bundle I should have every tool I need to achieve this !

    • What is it with some of us who’ve been writing music and experimenting with audio for decades, yet never released anything!

      Your answer regarding automating plugin params, compounding and otherwise nuanced application of multiple plugins in chain (If I understood you correctly), is pretty much my view too, by far providing the most creative sound design flexibility.

      The wet/dry application is inherently available via the mix console in your DAW, isn’t it? Or am I misunderstanding the signal path there somehow.

      Good on you for taking the step to launch an album after so long. Would love to know what the catalyst was, I still don’t have the confidence or knowledge to take my completed projects to full scale launch. Even with all my experience, I never made the transition, because I’ve not seen it done first hand.

  2. I’d say Valhalla FreqEcho. Even though I don’t use it that much, the shift option its awesome and sounds pretty good for leads adding some good and easy ear candy.

  3. My favorite sound design tool is using a simple four band EQ and Distortion to shape sounds. Rolling of the high or low end, then boost or cutting frequencies to bring out honk, or spank, or thump. Then distorting heavily to make it sound nothing like the original signal.

  4. Unfiltered Audio Plugins, Glitchmachines plugins, Arturia EFX FRAGMENTS, Arturia Dist COLDFIRE, reason Alligator, Reason Synchronous

  5. Arturia Tape Mello-FI! You can use it to either make your stuff sound old as heck or saturate and compress the hell out of your audio. It’s great!

    Also Valhalla FreqEcho because of its insane feedback

  6. hands down, surge. one of the best synths available on the market. and also i use anarchy fx bundle a lot, especially convoluter

  7. Dmitry Sches Tantra (now distributed by Plugin Alliance). It leads to “happy accidents” often when generating background rhythms.

  8. My fav sound design tool is ableton’s audio effect rack – cuz it’s intuitive way to stack multiple plugins at once and easy to save/load anytime I need it <3

  9. My analog pedal chain in feedback loop:

    Jamman > pre-drive > delay > slapback echo > reverb > distortion > MS-50 (random) > Freqout > Jamman > Recorder

    Turn the knobs, wait… and record :)

    Then listen, sample and slice, slice, slice.

    Cheers from Italy!

  10. Favorite sound design effect or tool would have to be Rift by Minimal. Their feedback section alone is awesome, but the whole plugin has useful goodies that are fun to mess with.

  11. I would say Reels or RC20 for sound design… but one VST I use on most of my tracks is Scaler.
    This will help me to find melodies or new chords that matches what I’m playing. A great tool!

  12. Soundtoys, especially Crystallizer for turning a sound into a pad… then it’s fun to make it weirder with Goodhertz Wow Control. I also really love Wires (makes everything more interesting), and really want Speakers.

  13. A combination of Reaper (DAW) , Korg electric esx1 with Novation Ultranova ,Bass Station II and Valhalla plugins….

  14. Valhalla, Unfiltered Audio, and Melda Productions plugins, various saturation plugins, convolution reverb using things like wavetables or bits of samples instead of IRs, Reaper’s pitch shifter, Amplitube, hardware rack effects and pedals, and Eurorack.

  15. At the moment (cause it changes like the waves lapping the shore) RP Predator and Falcon synths. Because one is never enough…. there are more, but I will control myself!

  16. My go to sound design tool tends to be a pitch shifted delay so something like output portal or soundtoys crystaliser are what I use most frequently.
