Vortices is an audio character mixer designed to emulate and accentuate the saturation-compression effects and frequency response of vintage analog consoles and tape machines.
Vortices was designed to offer a compact mixing environment with the characteristic sound coloration of vintage analog gear. The frequency response of vintage mixing consoles tends to de-emphasize higher frequencies and produce a rounder tone. I find this to be really nice for reducing harshness from FM’d and digital source material - the response makes them sound smoother and less fatiguing on the ear and imposes an inherent glue and polished sound upon a mix.
