Format: VST, VST3, AAX, AU

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 select 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.
New in version :
Native apple M1 support.
Minor bug fixes.
VST3 installer for windows.
Linux VST3 support.
Linux dot folder for settings and factory presets. Linux user need to enter the serial number again after that update. Also they maybe delete the old settings folder in the user directory and move the presets to the new one.
Modes do not work as expected fixed.
Audio drop outs through invalid calculations fixed.
Shelf EQ does not restore value after loading session under some conditions.
Compatibility with older OSX versions fixed (OSX only).
Optimized build (OSX only).
Jitter improved (jitter moved to the recording stage like in TAL-SAMPLER)
Optional oversampling added
Small UI changes
Base framework updated
Notarized installer for OSX
