Fuse Audio Labs was founded in 2017 by Reimund Dratwa who has an experience of many years working for different big names in the audio business during which he created dozens of renowned analog modeling titles. It was initially intended as an engineering company that works for various partners, but it soon became apparent that it could also serve as a channel for our own ideas and allow us to pursue our vision. The same expertise that went into the aforementioned products goes into everything that we create.
The VCL-373 is a recreation of an early 60s broadcasting compressor. It includes a faithful emulation of the audio circuitry and adds some convenient features in the digital domain.
The F-59 is a recreation of the late ’50s classic that set the course for decades of guitar amplification technology. A cab emulation and a linear level control have been added for more versatility.
The TCS-68 was made to pay homage to one of the most iconic cassette tape based 8-track recorders including a faithful recreation of the preamp, the tape system and the EQ.
The Bucket-500 is an authentic emulation of a bucket brigade (BBD) based analog delay circuit with some convenient features added in the digital domain.
The VCL-4 is a faithful emulation of the op amp based successor of the classic late 60s opto leveler. Unintrusive to extreme opto compression with switchable ratio.
Fuse Audio Labs has released the Flywheel.
Reel Analog Aesthetics
Flywheel injects the lush analog sound of reel-to-reel tape recording systems into your music. Instead of focusing on the specifics of a single machine, this magnetic marvel combines all the beautiful analog imperfections such as saturation, hysteresis, high frequency loss and head bump in a single, clearly laid out tone shaping interface.
Whenever you feel your music could sound more organic, cohesive, diversified and interesting, Flywheel will add that special sauce to your tracks. Adding vibrant warmth and presence to your recordings, mixings and masters has rarely been that simple and that much fun before. No credit plan, no service tech, no tape salad – just pure analog awesomeness.
As Easy as That
A lot of thought has been put into reducing the parameter set, offering plenty of sonic flexibility while maintaining a most straightforward user experience: Simply dial in the record gain, select tape speed and formula and then tweak the results with the hysteresis and EQ. Only a hand full of controls grants access to a sea full of interesting textures.
The magnetic sound experience wouldn’t be complete without different tape formulas, adjustable wow and flutter as well as a tape transport stop/start… and Flywheel delivers. Rounded off by optional oversampling for improving overall audio quality, this tape emulation is a reliable first pick for applying a remarkable polish to your very own masterpieces.
