Never heard of Yum Audio? That’s about to change. The new plug-in developer is hitting the scene with four new audio tools, and you can now download one of them for free! Yum Audio’s first four plug-ins are called LoFi – Playtime, LoFi – Pitch Dropout, Spread and Spread Light, and they look like awesome additions to any sound designer’s plug-in folder.
Yum Audio plug-ins
Although Yum Audio’s website has a very Japanese feel to it, the new plug-in developer appears to be based in Germany. And they’re introducing themselves with the release of four exciting new plug-ins designed to help you bring your audio tracks to life. With a 30% launch discount, now is a great time to check out these new tools.
LoFi – Playtime is a “time twister” that lets you experiment with time and pitch. It gives you two virtual tape machines with independent controls for playback speed, direction, age and ‘shine’. There’s also a freeze button for creating interesting loops and a delay for warbling textures. I really dig the playful GUI of this one.
LoFi – Pitch Dropout is another effect designed to add tasteful imperfections to your signal. It offers six modes based on old playback systems and their characteristic dropout behaviors. You can of course adjust the amount and probability, and even trigger dropouts manually.
As the name suggests, Spread is a stereo spreader, albeit a very interesting one. It divides your audio signal into four adjustable frequency bands. Each band offers independent panning and width controls and can be used in M/S or Haas mode. There’s a global intensity slider which lets you make quick adjustments to the overall effect.
And then there’s Spread Light, which is currently available for free as part of Yum Audio’s special launch offer. Spread Light gives you a single Spread band, with width and pan controls and M/S and Haas modes.
