Softube have announced a new plug-in package from the mind of legendary audio equipment designer Paul Wolff - the new Fix Flanger and Doubler. Fix Flanger and Doubler takes the legacy and sound of classic flanging and vocal doubling of the 1960s, but with all the benefits of the digital world and will be available for purchase from Softube from November 9, 2015.
Back in 1979, Paul Wolff produced an exclusive limited-edition hardware, later loved among musicians and sound engineers. Now in 2015, Fix Flanger and Doubler is the reincarnation of this hardware — a plug-in package that handles hands-on flanging, as well as vocal doubling.
Classic Flanging Reimagined
Fix Flanger is capable of both classic guitar pedal-style flanging with an automatically swept flange, as well as direct interaction in the manual mode. A VSO mode features hands-on control with emulated servo motor bounce. Added features such as tap tempo sweep, stereo widening, and selectable delay polarity.
Doubling Made Simple
Fix Doubler delivers texture and richness to vocals and polyphonic instruments. The interface, combined with Paul Wolff’s ‘Auto Double’ algorithm, makes it possible to add lush chorus and rich layers to your vocal track.
