Multi-Stage Analog Drive – You Need This (Free Download)

Yet another Free Rack Wednesday. This week we continue our journey into “analog” worlds.

I’ve made a serial processing effect rack which includes 5 overdrives and glue compressor stages.

Each stage adds a tiny bit more compression and as much drive as you want.

At the end of the chain I’ve put an Analog Filter and a Saturator to function as a Clipper/Maximizer.

All compressors are set to oversampling and Saturator is set to hi-quality mode.

You will hear the rack works the minute you load it on something.

Play around with the different drive stage to get all kinds of distorted/saturated tones.

I think this rack can help any sound become beefier and more interesting. Especially on drums, bass (don’t forget to add a sub layer since the analog drive may take away the low end) and vocals.
