RC 20 Retro Color Vst Plugin Full Version

In Short, if you love Vintage Effect, then XLN Audio Should be your first choice. However, I will not simply write it & leave. I will list all the reasons to download it. We will explore its features, specifications, and installation tutorial.

What is RC-20 Retro Color Vst Free Download?

RC-20 Retro Color is a VST effect plugin that adds the warm feeling of old vintage recording equipment in your sounds. It can add life, character, and texture to any recording. Although its hard to describe the effects created by this plugin. But it is mainly regarded for applying Distortion, grittiness, Reverb, and some nice saturation to your track. I think that creators have put in a lot of time and effort into recreating these old school vintage artifacts.

Now, we will talk about its Interface. I have covered all the sections in detail. Before starting, grab a glass of old wine as its features are as good as old wine.

RC Retro Color Interface

As a first time user, you might get surprised by the number of possibilities it offers to make your sound unique and old school at the same time. I have divided its Interface into the following three sections.


Top Section: Not a Lot to talk about

You can find Presets Browser and a Magnitude Slider in this section. You can load or browse XLN Audio presets using the presets browser. Magnitude Slider is used to control the amount of gain on a global level.

FX Module Section: Main Attraction

It is Vst Effect Plugins so the FX section will judge whether you should use it or not. but frankly speaking, if you are specifically looking for decent saturation or distortion plugins, then better options are available. Retro Vst is specifically designed to give a vintage effect to your sound. It has six main FX Modules, each providing different varieties of taste.

Let's dive into its details.


As Noise is the first FX module, it normally appears at the beginning of the signal chain so it will be distorted, crushed, filtered, and fluttered along with your source audio. There are a number of different Noise types available in RC-20 Retro Color Vst Free Download, ranging from vinyl record crackle to cassette and VHS noise and much more.

  • Tone: Tone is a basic "tilt" style tone control, turning it clockwise means more high end and less low end and vice versa.
  • Follow: You can make the noise level follow the input signal level. Great on drums! At 0% the noise level is static.
  • Routing: Activating Routing, lets you re-route the noise so it is inserted at the end of the effect chain, after the Master Section EQ.
  • Duck: The Duck knob lets you create a ducking effect. With Duck, the noise level is pushed down by incoming audio peaks, mimicking the effect of a "pumping" compressor with a slow attack.


This module modulates the pitch (and speed) of the incoming audio, much like classic tape recorders. The two classic artifacts Wow (slow) and Flutter (fast) are also provided. Wow/Flutter Balance slider lets you adjust how much amount you want of each.

  • Stereo: Stereo mode turns the wow section this into a nice chorus
  • Mix: Mix knob is used for creating lush sound.


It applies Distortion across the layers of the sound. Various types of distortion are available. Try them out.

  • Focus Filter: You can select the frequency range where the distortion will be applied using Focus Filter. This lets you distort only the mid/high range while leaving the bottom intact.
  • Mix Knob: Use the Mix knob to set the balance between Distorted and unprocessed sound.

Celebrate and stimulate the sampling technologies yesteryear, when the word "Digital" was so cool you'd put it in your song lyrics. The Rate/Bits Balance slider lets you set the desired balance of sample rate and bit-depth reduction.

  • Smooth: You can polish off the rough digital edges for a less harsh sound.
  • Focus Filter: It helps you to select the frequency range where the "crushing" will be applied. Works great to get some crunch at the top of a kick while leaving the bottom untouched.
  • Cut: As the name suggests, it simply removes/cut the frequencies outside the selected focus range.
  • Mix: Use the Mix knob to set the volume balance between the crushed and unprocessed sound


RC-20 Retro Color Vst Free Download is a reverb/resonator effect. Before discussing, if you are looking for a good decay effect plugins, then you should download ValhallaDSP Delay from our website. It is the best delay vst plugins.

The space section is not that good. But for the sake of it, let me explain its components. Decay controls the length of the reverb tail. PreDelay lets you place the reverb slightly after the source sound to reduce muddiness. The Focus Filter controls the resonance/damping of the reverb itself and can sometimes have a drastic effect depending on source material. The Stereo switch can turn mono-material into stereo, but also provide RC-20 Retro Color Vst Crack.


This module simulates all kinds of funny stuff that happens with volume when recording on magnetic tape.

  • Wear: Wear means you played your tape too many times, the magnetic particles are starting to wear thin making the volume fluctuates a little (or a lot).
  • Flutter: It is a faster artifact usually caused by the capstan pin in the tape mechanism.
  • Wear/Flutter Balance slider lets you find the perfect balance between them.
  • Dropouts are similar to wear, but more intense-basically random sudden drops in volume.
  • Stereo Switch lets you choose if wear and dropouts do the same thing in both speakers or not.

Master Section


Use the Gain knob to adjust the input level. The level is usually not super critical, but feel free to crank it up to drive the DISTORT and DIGITAL modules harder.


This filter lets you cut out unwanted frequencies at the bottom and/or top end of the spectrum. The steepness of the filter can be set to Softor Hardon both ends.


This control offers a simple way to shape the tone of the final sound. In TILT mode, turning the knob clockwise turns up the high end and turns down the low end. Turning the input knob the other way has the opposite effect. In MID mode the knob controls the mid frequencies, giving your sound a nice smiley curve.
