Available for download, Dopamine from Overloud is an exciter and harmonic enhancer that emulates two vintage tape-encoding processors, allowing you to revive individual tracks and add color to complex mixes, all while preserving, and not destroying, the inherent character of your mix. Emulating the processors found on AN-180 and D361 units gives you the option of two distinct cartridges (A-Type and Stressor). Dopamine seeks to balance the audio content already found in the sound source, allowing you to manipulate the dynamic response of the sound without introducing unwanted artifacts.
Dopamine requires very little CPU power to run, making it suitable for use on multiple tracks. Many plug-ins engineered for real-world mixing scenarios have been included. Dopamine works on both Mac and PC platforms and can operate as an AU, VST, or AAX plug-in and as a standalone on 32- or 64-bit systems.
