Description: TAL-DAC is not a conventional bit crusher or downsampling plugin. The plugin is based on the TAL-Sampler sound engine and emulates recording with downsampling and changing the bit value or upscaling it to the desired host sampling rate.
You can choose different algorithms for the upsampling process to emulate the characteristics of different samplers. A pass-through shelving EQ along with the AMP Drive in the Reconstruction section will give the sonic character of various AMP samplers. This plugin can be used on a wide range of audio material, but is especially useful and authentic on drum sounds.
Recording stage with input volume control and soft clipper (adds odd harmonics).
Variable recording sample rate (1000Hz-44100Hz).
Variable recording bit-depth (4bit-16bit) with different algorithms (mu-law, mu-law delta, linear).
Reconstruction section with different reconstruction methods (hold, variable, linear, S1000 / sinc).
Very steep reconstruction filters (optional).
AMP drive (add’s even and odd harmonics to the signal).
A high- and low shelf filter (12dB).
All non-linear components are 8x oversampled to avoid aliasing.
