Antresol – new stereo flanger plugin inspired by classic analog BBD flangers

June 22, 2015 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

Promotional video about Antresol showing some key features of the plug-in.

Here’s what they have to say about it:

The original, conceived in the mid-70s, quickly became a benchmark for flanger-type effects by offering a uniquely rich character defined by luxuriously harmonious interacting resonances, and has been heard ever since on countless classic recordings. That’s why D16 couldn’t resist the opportunity to resurrect the soul of this classic in a thoroughly modern incarnation with Antresol, our newest effect in the SilverLine Collection!



  • True emulation of BBD based analog delay line
  • Optional independent parameter control for each stereo channel
  • Selectable L/R or M/S stereo processing modes
  • ‘Mistress mode’ allows the whole unit to work the same as the classic flanger
  • LFO can be synchronized with your host application
  • 3 different LFO-to-BBD clock curves
  • Ultra-low aliasing output
  • Highly musical and pleasant sound
  • Tag-based browser
  • Two alternative GUI sizes
  • MIDI-learn functionality throughout
  • 64bit internal processing

Antresol is available now for US $49/39 Euro. A demo version is also available.

TASCAM Hi-Res Editor – free audio editing application for Windows

June 21, 2015 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 


TASCAM has released TASCAM Hi-Res Editor – a free audio editing application for Windows that supports editing files up to 11.2MHz DSD files or 384k WAV.

The software allows playback and export of DSD files without intermediate conversion to PCM audio.

DSD Audio can be played natively through USB devices that support it, such as the TEAC UD-501 and HA-P90SD. In cases where a PCM interface is used, or even the computer’s built-in audio, the software automatically plays DSD back through the interface at any available sample rate. A section of the DSD file can be exported as a new file, either in DSD or WAV format, to separate one long recording into individual tracks.

Ideal for users of TASCAM’s hi-resolution recorders like the DA-3000, this free Hi-Res Editor software is currently one of the few ways to edit native DSD master recordings.


  • Native DSD audio editing and playback, at sampling rates from 2.8MHz to 11.2MHz
  • WAV file editing and playback support up to 384kHz/32-bit
  • Uses standard ASIO 2.1 audio drivers
  • Set in and out points with waveform audio display for trim/export
  • Set overall gain of file (PCM files only)
  • Split long files into multiple tracks
  • Combine function joins two audio files into one
  • Convert audio files from DSD to PCM or vice-versa
  • Convert PCM sampling frequency and bit depth
  • Runs on Windows (using Windows Standard audio driver or ASIO 2.1)
  • Free download from

See the TASCAM site for details.
