What are some other ways you all go about antiquing recordings?

Things I have been experimenting with

  • Izotope vinyl
  • boscomac The cornet reaktor ensemble
  • flexing individual words in logic flex time set to speed
  • the obvious hi/lo cut
  • mild distortion

Take a look at Speakerphone!

Other things:

  • reamp through an old speaker
  • reamp and record through a ribbon mic
  • reamp through a copperphone
  • convolution with samples of old devices
  • overdo a tape emulator plugin
  • overdo a console emulator plugin
  • Rene, I always go to convolution first for everything, i don't know how this escaped me.

In Protools, try the built in "Lofi" and "Vintage Filter" plugs as well...Oh and if you have Waves, check out the Kings Microphone plug-in. Fun if a little heavy handed.

  • What version of PT has a "Vintage Filter?" Commented Apr 18, 2013 at 4:30
  • It's the AIR Vintage Filter (RTAS only). They started shipping with PT8
