To celebrate the company's 15th Birthday, iZotope have released a 64-bit version of their free Vinyl plug-in, also adding AAX&VST3 support on the way.
The new version of Vinyl has been updated to support modern operating systems and audio editing software: the plug-in is now 64-bit compatible on both Mac and PC, and supported formats now include AAX and VST3. Vinyl also features a new Spin Down button that simulates slowly stopping playback of a record, with announced results ranging from a dramatic "record stop" to a subtler nuance on an individual instrument. Vinyl's classic features are meant to allow a user to simulate the dust, scratches, crackles, pops, and warping of a worn record as well as the mechanical noises of a turntable. In addition, the Warp features are now available for use in all supported plug-in formats.
