Phonetic Vintage Phone Simulator

Telephone Simulator

LoveOne Consulting AB

  • • Vintage telephone sound

Audio examples

Phonetic is a creative effect that simulates the sound of vintage telephones and radios.

It includes two different microphone models with optional thermal noise and distortion. The signal chain also includes equimpent hum, cable noise, long-wave radio distortion, and a tweakable speaker model.

You can even send MIDI to Phonetic to generate a range of different busy and dial tones, including DTMF touch tones!

Use Phonetic to make your vocals sound as if they were sent through an old telephone or radio! Or add colorful electronic distortion to drums or other instrument recordings!
