Web www.math­ieude­mange.fr For­mat PC/Mac/iOS, VST/AU/AAX, Rea­son RE The first ef­fect plugin from De­mange is an em­u­la­tion of the en­tire AD/DA con­ver­sion path of the eter­nally revered Akai S950 sam­pler, from in­put to out­put. Ap­par­ently, he spent more than a year study­ing the hard­ware, and the re­sults speak for them­selves, as RX950 brings all the crunch and vibe of Akai’s his­toric box to the DAW via a hand­some in­ter­face. The ef­fect makes its pres­ence felt im­me­di­ately upon load­ing, crush­ing the in­put sig­nal down to 12-bit. Rais­ing the In­put Gain knob over­drives the ana­logue in­put cir­cuit for that awe­some S950 sat­u­ra­tion; the Au­dio Band­width knob gov­erns the sam­ple rate, sweep­ing from 3-19.2kHz, with ad­justable high-fre­quency re­sponse via the Bril­liance knob. That’s your boom-bap hip-hop beats sorted, then, but you also get a stonk­ing take on the 950’s fab­u­lous 12dB low-pass But­ter­worth fil­ter. RX950 also in­cludes a Mono switch and four GUI scal­ing op­tions (up to 250%), and is even NKS-com­pat­i­ble for users of NI Mas­chine and Kom­plete Kon­trol. It sounds ab­so­lutely wicked on drums, synths and even the mix bus, and at this price, it’s highly rec­om­mended. n10/ 10n
