AudioThing tells us that Type A is a plugin (VST, AU, AAX) inspired by a famous vintage tape encoder. The original unit was designed to be a noise reduction system for tape recording. Type A emulates the encode stage, which was often misused as an enhancer, dynamically increasing the top end of a signal without introducing artefacts or altering the harmonic content. AudioThing says that the results are similar to a dynamic EQ which adds presence and air to any track in a natural way.
