PSP Audioware Vintage Warmer 2 v2.5.2 Incl Keygen-NEMESiS
PSP Audioware Vintage Warmer 2 v2.5.2 Incl Keygen-NEMESiS®
PSP VintageWarmer2 (plug-in AudioUnit, VST, VST3, RTAS for Mac OSX (Universal Binary); VST3, VST and RTAS for Windows; VST, RTAS and MAS for Mac OS Classic) is a high-quality digital simulation of an analog-style, a single- or multi-band compressor/limiter. It combines rich, warm analog processing with a straightforward user interface, and comes with a comprehensive library of presets. The plug-in processor is highly flexible and can be used for both softknee compression and brick-wall limiting. This makes it an essential tool for mixing and mastering engineers. Careful attention has been paid to PSP Vintage Warmer’s overload characteristics with the processor being capable of generating saturation effects typical of analog tape recorders. PSP Vintage Warmer also incorporates professional VU and PPM metering together with accurate overload indicators thereby assuring professional quality results.
PSP VintageWarmer2 version installer contains 3 versions of the plug-in:
PSP MicroWarmer which provides the same sound quality as it’s big siblings, but with a simplified single-band interface and low latency performance optimized for use on individual tracks;
PSP VintageWarmer (LE) which is a direct descendant of the original PSP VintageWarmer with its all strengths such as low resource usage and latency;
PSP VintageWarmer2, the main addition being the FAT double sampling mode for even more analog sounding processing.
We strongly recommend that you use the PSP VintageWarmer (LE) or the PSP MicroWarmer in all multitracking applications except situations where FAT mode is important. The PSP VintageWarmer2 is recommended for mastering purposes and groups or master busses only.
In order to run a plug-in in 30 day demo mode or activate the plug-in, you need an iLok user ID which you can create for free at https://www.ilok.com/, and you need to install the free iLok License Manager application. A hardware USB iLok dongle is NOT required, however it is optional.
It may look like your granny’s cooker, but the PSP VintageWarmer is one seriously hot plug-in!
I was very impressed by the range of treatments on offer, and by the high quality of the results. This is a plug-in that you can use to completely mangle individual tracks, but also to add warmth and detail to complete songs without worrying about undesirable side-effects.

Polish developers PSP Audioware’s VintageWarmer is a single- or multi-band compressor/limiter with sound and saturation characteristics carefully modelled on those of analogue tape machines, accessed through a very attractive laboratory-style front end incorporating retro ‘VU’ meters. The large Drive control sets the input level to the limiter, while Knee adjusts from a hard turnover suitable for limiting through tape-saturation characteristics all the way to soft-knee compression, and Ceiling lets you adjust just the peak output level. Speed adjusts both attack and release times simultaneously (its name refers to tape speed), while you can shorten or lengthen the latter using the Release control.
Mix and Output are self-explanatory: I often found myself using the latter to set levels to exactly those of the input, and then using Bypass to hear exactly how VintageWarmer was enhancing my sounds. The twin ‘VU’ meters can display either pre-equalisation, gain reduction, or output levels for the left and right channels, with similar needle ballistics to either a hardware VU or PPM meter.
VintageWarmer can be used in two completely different modes. In single-band the High Freq, High Adjust, Low Freq, and Low Adjust controls adjust a high and low shelving equaliser with a range of 12dB. However, switching to multi-band mode lets these same controls adjust the crossover frequencies and high and low band pre-limiter gain settings. Clicking on the front-panel logo lets you access a ‘back panel’ display, where there is separate adjustment for saturation levels and release multipliers for each of the three bands, as well as a further handful of knobs controlling various aspects of meter ballistics. The saturation controls are worthy of special note, as they let you do what Paul White was discussing in SOS December 2001: add density and warmth to just the bass end, or drive the high band harder without interfering with the mid-range.
As you might imagine, initial impressions can be a little overwhelming given the number of controls, but thankfully PSP have provided plenty of presets with suggested uses ranging from subtle mastering tweaks, mix first aid and finalising, ‘analogue’ warmth or saturation at various simulated tape speeds and a variety of multi-band compressor/limiter formats, along with a range of ‘in your face’ treatments intended for specific instruments such as guitars, bass, and drums. I was very impressed by the range of treatments on offer, and by the high quality of the results. This is a plug-in that you can use to completely mangle individual tracks, but also to add warmth and detail to complete songs without worrying about undesirable side-effects.
PSP VintageWarmer is effective and easy to use. I was always able to find a factory preset that came close to the sound I was reaching for, and it was easy to tweak the rest of the way. I quickly became addicted to it for punching up tracks and finalizing a mix.

PSP Vintage Warmer’s overload characteristics go someway, if not all the way, to emulate the saturation type effects that one would expect when recording to analogue tape.

I reach for [PSP VintageWarmer] a lot these days when I need to give a track some extra “wow” factor.
