There are some effect plugins that in my opinion are a must-have for any producer. One of them is XLN Audio RC-20, where RC stands for Retro Color. We’ve recently featured this plugin in our Making a Record – How To Recreate ’70s/’80s Sounds article and we’re happy to report it’s now available also via Splice Rent-to-Own (where you’ll find other cool VST & AU Plugins, starting at $4.99/mo).
Not that it’s an expensive plugin by any means (you can get it for about $/€ 99 here), but if you’re kinda broke this is definitely good news.
XLN’s RC-20 Retro Color is now available to producers for the introductory rate of $4.99/month (for 20 months) through Splice Rent-to-Own, a unique, musician-friendly distribution model that makes world-class production tools more financially accessible. With Rent-to-Own, creators get instant access to creation software and pay off the retail price over time in small monthly instalments with no interest. Splice is proud to provide musicians with a path to ownership of their software, unlike traditional subscription models that do not enable musicians to build equity by owning their tools.
“As it’s the perfect solution to quickly add life and color to one-shot samples and loops, we are thrilled to release RC-20 Retro Color through Rent-to-Own to the Splice community,” adds XLN Audio CEO and co-founder Niklas Möller.
RC-20 Retro Color is a creative effect plugin that adds life and texture to any recording. See RC-20 in action in the video below:
It has become a staple for a new generation of producers and musicians worldwide (such as Finneas, Diplo, etc.) for its ability to recreate the warm, cozy feeling of vintage recording equipment, while still syncing perfectly with any modern production setting.
RC-20’s six unique FX modules can replicate everything from vinyl records to VHS machines, adding noise, wobble and dropouts to a track. It’s one of those handy tools that you can use on a wide range of sources, from keys to beats and guitars.
