Introduction

Voxengo Vintage Modulator is a stereo modulation PC VST plug-in which features 8 operators (4 for each output channel) with carefully designed modulation capabilities. This allows Vintage Modulator to create huge and convincing chorus, phaser and flanger modulation effects applicable to almost any program material imaginable: vocals, guitars, synth instruments and others. The phaser effects Vintage Modulator enables you to create are simply stunning!

Another has-to-be-useful feature of Vintage Modulator is its 'through time zero' design, which allows you to run the modulation signal ahead of the dry unmodulated signal. This, in turn, allows you to get various unusual mix combinations of dry and wet signals - ranging from comb-filtering to pre-echo effects, which may sound especially creamy with pad-like synth sounds.

Vintage Modulator features:

  • Vintage sound mode
  • Through time zero design
  • Factory presets
  • "A-to-B" comparisons
  • Mono-to-Stereo, Stereo-to-Stereo processing
  • All sample rates supported
  • 64-bit internal precision
  • Native assembler DSP code


  • Preset management

    Top buttons

    You can use the "Preset..." menu button to perform basic FXP/FXB preset/bank management tasks. The "Set as default" menu option of the "Presets..." menu allows you to assign the currently loaded program to the default preset program. This default program will be loaded whenever you enable a new instance of the plug-in or reset the current program. You can use the "Reset default" option to restore the default factory preset.

    By pressing the "A|B" button, you can exchange the current and shadow (or, alternatively, "A" and "B") programs. The "Copy" button copies the current program to a shadow one.

    Since only a single shadow program is used for the whole program bank, you can use "A|B" button to copy programs. To do so, you first need to switch to a program you want to copy and press the "Copy" button. Next, switch to a program where you want to put the first program and press the "A|B" button.

    The "Reset" button can be used to reset the current program. All parameters will return to their default states.



    Knob control

    Knob control

    To change a knob control's value, drag it with the left mouse button and move it up or down. For finer adjustment, press the right mouse button while dragging. Double-clicking on the knob with the left mouse button will return the knob to its default position.



    Parameters

    Freq - frequency of modulation.

    Delay - delay of modulation. This parameter is especially useful when Feedback parameter is not zero as Delay affects internal modulation signal path.

    Depth - depth of modulation.

    Feedbk - feedback amount; if this parameter is not set to 0%, it means the plug-in will create a phaser effect. Be careful when using values above 50%, as this can quickly overload your speakers. You can also specify negative feedback values.

    Wet Dly - how much the modulation (wet) signal is delayed; the delay time can be negative. This delay does not affect the internal modulation signal path - it only affects the mix between wet and dry signals.

    Wet - wet (modulated) signal gain. The "+/-" switch can be used to invert the wet signal.

    Wet Pan - panning of the wet (modulated) signal.

    Wet Cut - amount of high frequency cut applied to the wet (modulated) signal.

    Dry - dry (original) signal gain. You may mix dry and wet signals to taste to create a flanging sound.

    Mode button selects the modulation algorithm. The 'Clean' mode offers you a classic clean modulated sound. 'Vintage' mode offers you a sound with modulation noise applied to each operator. This mode consumes more CPU power but at the same time provides a more pleasant modulation sound with an old vintage color to it.

    Op Count selects the number of active modulation operators.

    OpPhasing selects phase pattern of the operators.

    In->Mono - forces mixing of the incoming audio to mono.

    F.Mono - forces processing of the left channel only.

    Quality button is used to switch between the normal and the high-quality processing modes. The high-quality processing mode internally uses a two-times higher sample rate, performing 2x oversampling. The high quality mode uses about two times more CPU resources. The "Auto" quality mode disables oversampling in the normal real-time plug-in operation and turns oversampling on during the offline audio bouncing. Please note that the "Auto" mode may not work properly in all hosts (if the host does not report back when it enters the offline processing mode).

    NOTE: when a mono signal is being processed (or when the F.Mono switch is enabled), the plug-in creates an 8-operator mono modulation with a very 'thick' sound.

    NOTE: The Wet and Dry knobs can be synchronized with the ALT key.



    ?

    The "Latency Off" switch can be enabled on the '?' dialog screen. This switch disables "through time zero" functionality, but reduces plug-in's latency to zero (this can be useful when you are using real-time instrument plug-ins mainly). This is a global option affecting all loaded instances of Vintage Modulator plug-in.

    Pressing this button will display the plug-in's info screen. This screen shows copyright and registration information, and contains the "Help" button which opens the bundled HTML help file you are reading now.



    Happy Mixing!
