Hellu! I wonder if anyone here have a good suggestion for plugins that applies transient intemodulation distortion as an effect? Right now I use crappy old amps, really old reel to reel-tape, and dynamic mics, but they give me absolutely no control, and when it's recorded it is there to stay. Of course the tape-players are re-amped, but it would still be easier to only use a dedicated plugin when I want that very effect and only use the hardware when I want the full characteristic of the gears. As a Nuendo-user, I work exclusively in the VST-format.
I'm not familiar with TIMD in analog gear, but it sounds like it could be analogous/similar to forms of digital waveshaping, in which case a flexible/variable waveshaper VST could also get what you want?
