Who is Soundtoys?
RECORDING WEEK 2023: Soundtoys was founded in 1996 by the the same engineering team behind the legendary Eventide H3000 Ultra-Harmonizer and DSP4000 line of signal processors. They used their extensive engineering knowledge to create Soundtoys, a music production plugin company dedicated to bringing colour, character, and creativity to the world of digital audio.
Designing audio processing plugin classics such as EchoBoy, Decapitator, FilterFreak, PhaseMistress, and Devil-Loc Deluxe, Soundtoys is at the forefront of creative professional audio effects, with a long list of professional mixers, sound designers, producers, and artists using and relying on its products daily.
High profile engineers and producers who love Soundtoys plugins include Dave Tozer (Kanye West, John Legend, Justin Timberlake), Tom Elmhirst (Adele, The Black Keys, Cee Lo Green, Florence & The Machine), Ryan Hewitt (Red Hot Chili Peppers, We Are Scientists, Sum 41, Avett Brothers) and Dave Pensado (Rick Ross, Macy Gray, T-Pain, Michael Jackson).
About Soundtoys 5
Soundtoys 5 brings together the entire range of 22 Soundtoys audio effects into one super-powered collection.
You can create luscious and expansive reverberation with the latest addition, SuperPlate – see more on this below. Or go wild and saturate, compress, or distort with Decapitator, Radiator, and Devil-Loc. Or why not get a virtual history of echo and delay hardware with EchoBoy and PrimalTap? It's also incredibly easy to transform your vocals with Little AlterBoy, or recreate classic studio pitch, chorus and widening effects with Crystallizer and MicroShift. Finally, you can take modulation to new levels with the beat-synced rhythmic effects of PanMan, Tremolator, FilterFreak, and PhaseMistress.
All of Soundtoys plugins are proven, powerful tools, trusted by professional mix engineers, musicians and sound designers everywhere. But Soundtools 5 presents them all to you in the Soundtoys Effect Rack for what is the ultimate effects collection.
SuperPlate is Sountoys' latest reverb plugin and newest addition to Soundtoys 5. SuperPlate includes vintage emulations of original hardware plate reverbs including an EMT 140, EMT 240, Audicon, EcoPlate III, and Stocktronics RX4000.
SuperPlate was largely developed because Soundtoys owns some of the legendary reverbs and simply wanted to bring the distinctive sound of this collection into the world of modern audio.
Now SuperPlate has joined the Soundtoys 5 family, you can combine its incredible plate reverb sound with a full suite of effects including analogue-modeled saturation and distortion, tape echo, filtering, EQ, and modulation.
With SuperPlate in Soundtoys Effect Rack, you have even more power to create complex soundscapes, unique textures, and dynamic sonic movements.
