Color is a sound texturing device that reintroduces the feel of analogue media like vinyl or tape to your digital recordings. It does this by allowin you to add different types of vinyl noises, hiss, drive and wobble to your music. Color’s filter effects also fit right into the most modern club track.

It works great on drums, synths, keys etc. but also on full mixes of every musical style. Whether you are scoring a film, creating EDM or writing experimental music, Color offers a unique sonic palette to inspire your productions.

The sound of analogue machines

No matter if your music needs just a touch of drift and movement with a hint of saturation or if you want to mangle signals almost beyond recognition, Color is at your fingertips with a simple yet powerful control set. 

Color works with live input or pre-recorded audio and is easy on your CPU. For full control, any of the sound colouring sections can by activated individually while Dry/Wet blends the original signal with the coloured signal. 

The sections:


Different types of vinyl noise can be added and adjusted in volume and tonality (pitch). Add also hiss in this section (a classic tape noise). The Duck switch allows to make the adjusted noises only audible when music passes through the device.


Simulate tape fluctuations and tape flutter effects. This reproduces the mechanical characteristics of old tape machines.


Align/misalign the phase of the signal.


Add raw distortion. Soft switches to a slightly more mellow distortion type. Limiter prevents the signal from overshooting, when activated.


A powerful 3-band EQ, fully parametric with adjustable Mid-Q.


An additional Post-Gain allows for gain staging your signal before it leaves the output while Dry/Wet lets you adjust the overall effect signal.
