RX950 Akai S950 Effect

RX950 Classic AD/DA Converter emulates the old Akai S950 sound! Great for Lo Fi House and Hip Hop!!

Features:

Legendary 12-bit resolution
Perfect modelling of the S950’s audio signal path
Adjustable audio bandwidth (and thus sampling frequency)
Original steep 6th-order low-pass Butterworth filter
Stereo or mono operation
Low CPU consumption
Supports AUv3 and Inter-App Audio

How does it work:

The Input Gain Knob makes your sound loud’n’proud with the S950’s unique grit and warm distortion. It’s powerful and will help anything stand out in your mix.

The Audio Bandwidth Knob controls the target sample rate and analog-to-digital conversion circuitry with an exquisite, yet remarkably subtle, aliasing effect.

The Filter Knob controls the S950’s infamous steep low-pass filter. Use it on separate elements, or on any output bus or master section.
