Crane Song RA AAX Harmonic Plug-in - Electronic Delivery

Native AAX amplifier/overdrive/distortion plug-in for Avid Pro Tools featuring 4 groups of controls: low level, peak, even harmonic, and a combo control of drive and output level trim


Product Description

Crane Song RA mimics amplifier overload, giving control over even harmonics, compression of low-level audio, and peak level, in a nonlinear curve function – a technical way of saying it gives you precision control over your ability to add harmonics, and other distortion artifacts to your audio mixes. RA is a native AAX plug-in for Avid Pro Tools which features 4 groups of controls: Low Level; peak; even harmonic, and a combo control of drive and output level trim.

The Low Level Control of this harmonic AAX plug-in raises the low level signals with little impact on higher level audio. This allows you to raise lower level sections of your audio tracks and introduce an overdriven amp effect without blowing out higher level audio. This is something that conventional vintage amplifiers were not able to do.

The Peak Control section of this audio plug-in allows low-level signals to pass and acts like a soft clipper with control over exactly when and how the tones saturate. This control sets the limit for where peaks are rounded off and a hardness value that can be changed.

The Even Harmonics controls are the most difficult to hear and describe, mostly because the second harmonic is an octave. Even though it’s hard to distinguish, it does alter the feel of things because its effect adds more girth, and while it’s something you hear it’s often described as something you feel. The top and bottom controls round off those corresponding portions of the wave form, and when used in conjunction with each other, it can have a canceling effect. Using this with Low Level Control is often a magical pairing for acoustic guitars, bass, or kick drums.

For a lack of better terminology, the final controls are Drive and Trim which act as a “combo control” for overdrive/distortion. The amount of distortion this plug-in produces is determined on the incoming signal level for more or less distortion. The Drive control knob is positioned first on the very left side of this audio plug-in interface intentionally, and that’s because it’s first in the processing chain. And on the very right side is the Trim control knob for level matching.

I would like to thank VK for the wonderful sales assistance, service and prices. This was my first purchase with you and it won't be my last. I only wish I'd discovered you years ago!

I had two Grammy wins this year - Ray LaMontagne & Carolina Chocolate Drops. Both made with help from Vintage King!

In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.

My experience with Vintage King was excellent. The order was here fast considering it was out of stock. The sales person had SKB send it to me directly and I couldn't have been more pleased.
Michael D.
From the minute I placed my order I was kept well-informed through each step in your process. Even though I was buying a comparatively modest piece of gear, your attention to detail made me feel like I was purchasing a six-figure mixing desk.
