We ran a story on this one in April of last year when it was first announced and now Audio Ease tell us that they have released Speakerphone which they describe as the end-all speaker simulator plug-in, with a host of environments to put them in.
Hereâ€™s exactly how Audio Ease tell it in their own wordsâ€¦
â€˜A bad GSM connection on a busy sidewalk, a bullhorn with feedback and a helicopter overhead, or a 1952 rockabilly guitar amp in a recording studio live room: Speakerphone gives you authentic speakers of any size together with their natural environments.
All the walkie-talkies, distant transistor radios, Guitar cabinets, upstairs TV sets, bullhorns and cell phones youâ€™ll ever need. Speakerphone will add dial tones, operators and static, and you can select from a wealth of ambiences on either the caller or receiverâ€™s end. And with a click you can send anything from the sample-playback bay right to the cursor in your Pro Tools track.
Operation is extremely quick: you just call up one of the hundreds of carefully crafted and archived presets. If youâ€™re a tweaker just click â€˜show controlsâ€™ and the whole dashboard slides out, at your disposal, with the most minute detail.
Speakerphone, powered by Altiverb, combines a wealth of effects including a convolution engine that uses actual samples of hundreds of original speakers, a radio receiver tuning dial, record player scratch and static generator, GSM cell phone data compression, distortion, tremolo, delay, a variety of EQ and dynamics, bit crushing, sample rate reduction, a full blown convolution reverb, and a library of samples to combine into entire environments.
You want to have the artist rap through a cell phone? Rather than pull up an eq and distortion, why not make him rap through one of Speakerphoneâ€™s actual GSM connections? Perhaps surrounded by the acoustics and sounds of an idling car at a gas station?
And then thereâ€™s the host of classic guitar amps, complete with tailor made distortion, spring reverbs, and everything else to build guitar tone like youâ€™ve never heard from a plug-in.
The end-all speaker simulator plug-in, with a host of environments to put them in.
