Nomad Factory Releases Magnetic II
Nomad Factory, leader in accessible plug-in pricing, has upgraded their Real to Real Audio tape warmer plug-in for Mac and PC, Magnetic, to version 2.0. Magnetic is a realistic Real to Real audio tape warming effect plug-in that claims to “inject sterile audio with the warmth and character of classic tube circuitry and analog tape saturation.” The plug-in features pure analog reel-to-reel tape speeds, tape/tube saturation and tape color effects, as well as a dedicated vintage style EQ and a built in Boost mastering section.
Magnetic can be used in many different musical ways. Try using it on individual tracks to add subtle warmth and tape color to your drums or use it to create a filtered cassette AM-radio effect on a vocal. But that’s not all… when used on the master bus, Magnetic can warm your entire mix and “boost” it up to broadcast level. It’s just like having a 30+ year old reel-to-reel tape machine at your fingertips, without all the maintenance costs.
Through December 31, 2011 the new Magnetic II plug-in will be sold at introductory price of $79 (Retail $149). An upgrade path from Magnetic I is also available for only $20. Magnetic II is also available as part of Nomad’s new “Integral Studio Pack III” actually promoted at only $199 (Retail $599).
The Future: For a very reasonable $200 beans you get practically ever plug-in that Nomad offers…it’s a Holiday No-Brainer!
