For this month’s “Free With Any Purchase” gift, Plugin Boutique comes around the bend with a rather unusual one, that is to say, it brings out a few tools less bespoken in the realm of Plugin Boutique presents, namely a “re-amping” multi-effect plugin. And on top of it, although perhaps a bit subjective: she’s a beaut to behold.
Until the end of the month, you can swiftly add “Lifeline Expanse Lite” from Excite Audio to your list of sonic tools when grabbing your next purchase in their shop of many things.
PRO-TIP: Type <10PB into the search box on our Plugin Reseller Price Check to filter down to Plugin Boutique products that are less than $10 if you’re looking for something nice and cheap to qualify you for this month’s freebie!
Like the name would suggest, Lifeline Expanse Lite is a baby-brother to Lifeline Expanse, but even with a few limitations compared to its older and more grown-up sibling, it is a potentially very useful addition to any DAW. Because to deliver its plugin magic, it uses a technique called “re-amping”, and who wouldn’t want this to partake in one’s musical environment?
To re-amp a sound, an audio signal is inputted and then played out in a simulated environment. The signal is routed through amps, mics and effects to paint it with nice colours, thicker texture and steeper depth. This re(v)amped signal is then re-recorded to deliver sonic awesomeness.
Despite its “lite” denomination, it still comes with 5 effect modules, 20 unique algorithms, rearrangeable modular workflow, a resizable user interface and zero-latency throughput. With a wide range of speaker emulations ranging from vintage classic to modern, the age, tone and mix to accentuate the sound.
But truly, this is one of those plugins that just has to be tried and tested to be true to any description given. In monthly Plugin Boutique tradition, this means buying another thing to get this thing for free, but there is a realistic chance that you wouldn’t regret doing so if only to try and test what’s under the hood of this virtual machine.
Logically, if you already own it or its big brother, you will likely be unable to apply, and once you have it, you cannot sell it. If that’s alright for you, it’s up for grabs in the shop on Plugin Boutique lanes 1 through 99.
