Togu Audio Line releases TAL-DAC Beta Togu Audio Line has released a beta version of TAL-DAC for macOS and Windows in VST, AU and AAX formats.

TAL-DAC is not an ordinary bit crusher or sample rate reducer. The plug-in is based on the TAL-Sampler sound engine. It emulates a sample recorded on a low sample rate with reduced bit depth and upsamples it to the desired host sample rate.

It's possible to choose different algorithms for the upsampling process to emulate the characteristics of different samplers. A low and high shelf EQ together with an AMP Drive in the reconstruction section allow it to approximate the sound character of different sampler AMPs. Also, it is possible to emulate hot recorded signals using the input volume knob.

This plug-in can be used on a wide range of audio material, but it's especially useful and authentic on drum sounds.


  • Recording stage with input volume control and soft clipper (adds odd harmonics).
  • Variable recording sample rate (1000Hz-44100Hz).
  • Variable recording bit-depth (4bit-16-bit) with different algorithms (mu-law, mu-law delta, linear).
  • Reconstruction section with different reconstruction methods (hold, variable, linear, S1000/sinc).
  • Very steep reconstruction filters (optional).
  • AMP drive (adds even and odd harmonics to the signal).
  • A high- and low shelf filter (12dB).
  • All non-linear components are 8x oversampled to avoid aliasing.

Price: $25. Free for TAL-Sampler owners....

ThaLoops releases "Solution Urban Vault" VST / AU Instrument Plug-in for Mac amp; WinThaLoops has launched their first virtual instrument, Solution Urban Vault, created for urban music producers making beats in Hip-Hop, Trap and Pop music genres.

Solution Urban Vault features over 180 one-shot sample instruments integrated with ThaLoops signature layering method for organic and analog feel. The Urban Vault sound library combines the character of the old school, crate digging, dirty, damaged audio feel that beatmakers love from the one-shot sample format with the modern layering method provided in the Solution virtual instrument to get a powerful merged sound.

Solution Urban Vault features:

  • A virtual sampler for generating Hip Hop, Trap and Timbo riffs.
  • 91 dual presets (182 instruments total).
  • ThaLoops signature layering method for organic and analog feel.
  • A B musical phrases in the classic making beats on pads style.
  • Myriad of never heard before sound combinations.

Three-Body Technology releases OwnTHD - Saturator Plug-in for Mac amp; WinThree-Body Technology, the company behind Heavy Metal virtual guitar, Heavier7Strings, has announced the release of a new product, OwnTHD, a Saturator with 4 simulation modules, that gives you the freedom to adjust the analog feeling of your mix.

It has various classic console simulation, plus unique circuit simulation, "to fill in the blank of one missing feature of your effects: adjust analog feeling".

OwnTHD includes four components: Vintage Equipment Simulation, Solid-State Simulation, Tube Simulation and Tape Simulation. All of them are connected in serial, and each can be turned on/off individually.

Vintage Equipment Simulation:

  • 9 Types of equipment simulation with different "color" added to the sound that fits different music styles.
  • 4 knobs to control distortion level. you can have more freedom on how to THD.
  • Feedback control, bias control, and depth control.
  • We provide three sweet spot modules, you have the freedom to adjust the frequency and amount of a particular sweet spot.

Solid Simulation:

  • Simulates the characteristics of a solid-state transistor under "ideal condition".

Tube Simulation:

  • Simulates the effects produced by vacuum tube under "ideal condition".

Tape Simulation:

  • Simulates the features of a tape machine under "ideal condition".

Intro Price: $89 (Reg. $129)....
