Turn Your DAW Mixer into an Analogue Desk

The digital world with its clarity and accuracy lacks some vibe from the old times. This is why English producer and remixer Greg Brimson, also a United Plugins-powered artist, approached us with his idea for a dream plugin. 'Create a front door for every recording, and call it Front DAW, guys,' said he, 'so that every track would have a true analogue input.' Thanks to him you can turn your DAW Mixer into a real Analogue Console.

Front DAW Key Features

Every track different with VARM

It‘s not just Greg who needs to take advantage of our Variable Analogue Random Modeling technology. VARM II is technology based on knowledge of chaotic behaviour and randomness of the analogue world. Thanks to VARM II, each plugin instance acts slightly differently. VARM models randomness of the subtle differences in the values of the electrical parts - exactly as in the real electrical units and the real console channels.

Five types of saturation.

BR/MG/US/CL/GE buttons represent three types of analogue circuits you may choose from. BR represents classic fat British consoles; US stands for legendary punchy American-style input. Switching to GE will give you a velvet-sounding vintage German tube console. The newly added MG and CL buttons represent magnetic tape and clip saturation.

The mojo

Turning the Mojo knob lets you decide the amount of saturation your tracks get. The effect is rather subtle and gentle because Front DAW is intended to be used on many tracks simultaneously. You don‘t want your mix to be dirty, do you?

Saturate every track

Thanks to advanced modeling technology we use Front DAW is very CPU-friendly. It is designed to be used on every single track of your mix (if desired).

Hassle-free software protection

No iLok, no dongle, or internet access is required for activation. Our software uses license files to activate your software. You can freely use the purchased software on all your computers as long as you are the user.

Realistic 3D yet flexible GUI

The photorealistic graphic user interface of the plugin gives you the feeling you are touching the real hardware. But it easily adapts to your needs. You can always drag the arrow in the bottom right corner to change its size - make it smaller to save valuable screen space, or enlarge it to make it easier to use.

FREE 15-Day unlimited trial

All the descriptions are nothing compared to putting your hands on the plugin. No saving limits. No noises. No boundaries. Engage the plugin in your project for real and fully exploit its powers for two weeks.

Second-hand edition for FREE

Even partly broken machines can serve well in many studios. Although their functionality can be limited to just one feature, they may give your records something extra. After the trial period expires, the plugin continues working with limited access to several features.

64-bit audio quality at ANY sampling rate

The plugin provides the maximum audio quality you can get. It uses internal 64-bit audio processing and can handle any sampling rate. 192 kHz or even higher.

Smart bypass

The intelligent way our plugins manage bypassing ensures that you don't get any clicks or harmful noises when automating the parameter. It also compensates for latency, ensuring that the bypass states are perfectly in sync with each other.

Intelligent sleep on silence

This plugin intelligently detects whether it makes sense to perform processing at all. If not, it temporarily turns on sleep mode. In such a state, it requires virtually no CPU at all to save the computing sources for other processes.

Free-for-life updates

Our plugins never become obsolete. We keep track of the current operating systems and DAWs. You may always update to the most recent version for free, without paying a cent, a penny, or whatever currency you prefer.

Sincerely, this is the first plug-in I’ve used that made me consider selling a certain piece of gear that I have. There’s something really good happening when you hear it working, like driving a discrete opamp or transformer to its sweet spot. I’ve found that just putting it before or after a surgical or transparent plugin can give you the best of both worlds. It’s like giving your software an analog retrofit!

FrontDAW is the real deal. It’s low on CPU and high on flavour. Front Daw is getting used a lot in my sessions.

Sometimes people send me recordings that were done with a cheap microphone and a cheap interface, thus resulting in a thin and lifeless recording. When I receive recordings like those, Front DAW is the first plugin to be applied because it thickens them up and breathes life into them.

This is a pretty subtle warming effect which is surprisingly great for helping things sit together in a mix - very quick and simple to use.

No matter what kind of specific sonic character you’re hunting for: whether it’s the N - - -, the A - - or the ultra sweet German valve flavor: only adjust the highpass (thanks for that knob. you know what it takes!), dial in the MOJO and you will start smiling while entering sheer analogue heaven.

Front DAW in reviews

FrontDAW is a clever take on emulating minor variations of analogue gear. It is so efficient that you can use dozens in a project with no worry of bogging down your CPU, and its Sleep on Silence function makes it even more efficient.
