Looking for a way to ‘spice’ up your tracks?
Ploytec – well known for the innovative PL2 micro synth and high performance USB MIDI and Audio drivers – released an exciting new “harmonics processor” plug-in called Aroma.
Aroma is a newly developed Harmonic Processor creating analog charm in an unprecedented musical way. The four valve or tape like units add elegance to your audio material. Primarily designed for mastering, Aroma can also create astonishing changes to the character of vocals and instruments.
The additional Mid/Side processing options allow a decent and smooth fine tuning of the stereo base you won’t get from any other software or hardware. We refrained from names like “tape simulation” or “valve” for the processing units.
Though Aroma’s refinements are loosely related to such analog models – Aroma’s variety is far beyond. The flavour controls relate to a wide variety of beauty, warmth and attractiveness. Aroma not only adds elegance to your music, Aroma makes it shine, sounding simply sensational.
The ‘Flavours’ in Aroma are:
Though salt is essential for life in general, it doesn’t mean it’s always necessary to add more, plus, be aware it’s easy to oversalt. The salt effect adds an adjustable structure of even and odd order harmonics. Like on all modules, its sound depends on signal level.
The world’s most traded spice describes Aroma’s most important steerage. It focuses on odd order harmonics and offers different musical colours, adjustable via the flavour control. Pepper makes your material bold and luxuriant. Attention: Overdoing makes it scream!
Here’s the sweetness and fatness of analog tape. Sugar adds dimension without the flutter. Its compression is frequency depending and its character is adjustable from rock candy to wild honey. Be careful: It’s sticky!
This pepper is intense. Its Scoville heat rating can go up to actually millions and it makes your music hot as hell and delicious as heaven. Adjustable structures of odd harmonics on fiery scales.
