Description: TAL-DAC is not an ordinary bit-crasher or plugin for downsampling. The plugin is based on the TAL-Sampler sound engine and emulates recording with decreasing the sampling frequency and changing the bit value or increasing it to the desired sampling frequency of the host.
You can select different algorithms for the upsampling process to emulate the characteristics of different samplers. The pass-through shelf equalizer along with AMP Drive in the Reconstruction section will allow you to get the sound character of various AMP samples. This plugin can be used in a wide range of audio materials, but it 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.
