DOPAMINE

Overloud DOPAMINE is the emulation of two classic tape encoding processors, used as enhancers. It is designed to revive individual tracks as well as complex mixes while preserving their natural tone.

KEY FEATURES

  • Replicates the enhancing side of the tape noise reduction units
  • Simulates two classic processors: the 180 and the 361
  • Simulates two cartridges: the A-Type and the Stressor
  • Naturally enhances the audio by balancing the harmonic content
  • Allows to tweak the dynamic action of the effect
  • Very low CPU usage: you can open the plugin on each track of the session with a negligible CPU load
  • Lots of presets designed in real mixing sessions


TAPEDESK

Overloud TAPEDESK combines a hyper-realistic simulation of a 2 inch 24-track World Class Tape Machine from a renowned UK studio and three legendary analog console models into a single plugin, to replicate the warm tones of an analog mixing workflow.

KEY FEATURES

  • Simulation of 3 legendary analog consoles
  • Simulation of a 2 inch 24-track tape machine
  • Faithful interactions between the console and the tape machine
  • Precise metering in any point of the sound chain
  • Simulation of all transformers in the original units
  • Very low CPU usage: all your tracks can have one
  • Lots of presets designed in real mixing sessions

Overloud DOPAMINE is the emulation of two classic tape encoding processors, used as enhancers. It is designed to revive individual tracks as well as complex mixes while preserving their natural tone. Overloud DOPAMINE does not introduce unpleasant artefacts like the exciters do: in fact, it dynamically balances the harmonics that naturally exist in the original audio rather than generating non-existent harmonics by synthesising them.

How does it work?

Overloud DOPAMINE is a particular kind of enhancer used in early forms of magnetic tapes noise reduction. The tape was encoded by dynamically brightening the signal then, while playing back, the tape was decoded by taking off the extra brightness and, consequently, reducing the the tape hiss.

The audio engineers realized that the tape encoding process was a desirable effect on many kind of audio so they started to use this process in parallel with the original tracks to add liveliness. Overloud DOPAMINE replicates this process. 

Overloud TAPEDESK combines a Tape Machine and multiple Console models into a single plugin, to replicate the warm tones of an analog mixing workflow.

Why TAPEDESK?

In the real world, a tape machine is always physically connected to a console.

Sound enters into the console’s preamplifier, gets fed into the tape machine and is recorded to tape. From there the tape is played back and the audio again hits the console for mixing into its stereo bus.

Recreating this process using separate components is fairly complex but it is the only way to actually replicate the experience of mixing in analog. TAPEDESK automates all of these separate processes for you; you only need to insert the plugin on your tracks and enjoy the experience of mixing in an analog world.

TAPE MACHINE

Overloud TAPEDESK features a hyper-realistic simulation of a 2 inch 24-track World Class Tape Machine from a renowned UK studio.

Any piece of the sound path has been simulated in order to recreate the authentic analog vibe of the original tape machine.

You can control any kind of tape parameters, from tape speed to head biasing, in order to have full control on the tonal palette.

CONSOLE EMULATION

Overloud TAPEDESK emulates the complete signal paths of three legendary analog consoles, used every day of the last 20 years to create thousands of hits inside the world’s finest studios.

S4000 Console - Wide and somewhat aggressive kind of character that made it the first choice for rock, metal and pop music.

N80 Console - Rich, warm, English sound which can give your mix some classic vibe. 

T88 Console - Particularly sought-after console, with a thick, fat tone and a renowned personality due to its midrange push.

Press Quotes

"I've tried lots of these 'exciter' type plugins and nothing has come close till now. This is really, really great—better than my modified cards in the old school Dolby rack. Nice work Overloud!" — JOE BARRESI (Tool, Queens of the Stone Age, Soundgarden, Bad Religion)

"The Overloud team has done a stellar job creating a brilliant recreation of a truly one-of-a-kind studio tool, and you’ll find it to be uniquely powerful for vocal mixing - as well as general enhancement of synths, drums, and full mixes when the source material is right." - DJBooth.net
