The idea of the Front DAW as the front door to your recording application comes from Greg Brimson, well established British producer, remixer and musician, as the result of his long term desire for the old-school analogue sound in his DAW.
As the name suggests, Front DAW is intended to be used as the very first plugin on every track (if desired – FD is really CPU friendly). The plugin adds gain and subtle saturation to them.
Thanks to VARM (Variable Analogue Random Modeling – used also previously on Royal Compressor) each track would sound slightly different even with identical settings. But using identical settings may not be the case for everybody, because the plugin offers three types of saturation circuits: BR represents classic fat British consoles, US stands for legendary punchy American style input. Switching to GE will give you velvet-sounding colourful vintage German tube console. All you have to do is to set the gain, choose saturation mode and set the saturation amount with the Mojo knob.
Front DAW Key Features
Every Track Different with VARM
It‘s not just Greg who needs to take advantage of our Variable Analogue Random Modeling technology. VARM is technology based on knowledge of chaotic behaviour and randomness of the analogue world. Thanks to VARM, each plugin instance acts slightly different. VARM models randomness of the subtle differences of the values of the electrical parts – exactly as in the real electrical units and the real console channels.
Three Types of Saturation.
BR/US/GE buttons represent three types of analogue circuits you may choose from. BR represents classic fat British consoles, US stands for legendary punchy American style input. Switching to GE will give you velvet sounding colourful vintage German tube console.
Turning the Mojo knob lets you decide the amount of saturation your tracks get. The effect is rather subtle and gentle because Front DAW is intended to be used on many tracks simultaneously. You don‘t want your mix to be dirty, do you?
Saturate Every Track
Thanks to advanced modeling technology we use Front DAW is very CPU-friendly. It is designed to be used on every single track of your mix (if desired).
