Intro to XLN RC-20 Retro Color
XLN Audio’s RC-20 was a best kept secret in the producer community for awhile. You either were amazed by the functionality of RC-20 or had no idea it exists, there was really no in-between. Over the last 12 or so months it’s become a staple, go-to plugin within the production community. RC-20 excels in its ability to give an analog-modelled warmth (along with countless other) to any sound you put through the plugin. I only recently purchased RC-20 on Sweetwater (available here) during the Black Friday sale, and while I’m just beginning to get my hands dirty with it, I’m extremely pleased this far. Let’s take a look!
Official XLN Audio RC-20 Retro Color Description
XLN Audio’s RC-20 Retro Color Plug-in supplies you with a huge palette of vintage coloration effects that add texture and life to sterile recordings, enhancing your productions with the warm, inviting, compelling sound of vintage gear. Organized as six modules — Noise, Wobble, Distortion, Digital, Space, and Magnetic — RC-20 Retro Color delivers crunchy, raw distortion and bit reduction that adds grit to kick drums and bass. Pining for the sound of vinyl or VHS? RC-20 does that, too. Its chorus and space FX will make your guitar soar, and its filtering FX are perfect for contemporary club tracks. XLN’s proprietary Flux Engine imparts subtle (or not) fluctuations and instability to all the effects modules, delivering retro analog vibe, warmth, and character.
