The sound of the machine

Meet the PCM2612 Retro Decimator Unit, a bitcrusher effect plug-in with a distinctive legacy. Based on the work we made on the RYM2612 Iconic FM Synthesizer, our tribute emulation of the Sega Genesis sound chip, the 8-bit decimation is inherited from the synth’s built-in DAC feature, packed in a simple and compact effect unit.

Digital is the new vintage

Modern music styles that are composed in a digital environment live in a paradox: powered by highly capable and transparent digital converters, they rely on effect simulations to gain a vintage soul. Either in an analog or digital fashion, the induced sonic flaws give charm and character to a sound signal that’s otherwise too perfect or too cold. Is digital decimation of the ’90s the new vintage? We may think so!
