  • New Year FLASH Sale! (1/18/2023)

    www.admiralquality.com Flash Sale!
    The biggest savings we’ve offered in years! From now until January 25, 2023, all our VST/AU plug-in products are 60% OFF! You can also save a further $20 by buying them all together in our Make Me One With Everything Bundle!

    Here at the Admiralty we strongly believe in “Try-B4-Buy”. All of our products run as free demos with no time limits – you can even save and recall your work! So don’t wait, check them out now and see if you can live without them.

    Admiral Quality are a small, independent music plug-in developer dedicated to producing highly accurate, innovative and convincing software emulations of sounds produced and processed by vintage analog electronics. While we don’t attempt to exactly clone any particular classic products, we do take our inspiration from the most famous of them and blend the best features of vintage gear with unique and original interpretations that should have and – most importantly – could have existed in the classic era! In a field where so many products seem to sound so similar and offer the same old features, our products are truly unique stand-outs. Try them in your favorite Windows or OS X, VST and/or AU compatible DAW software, and you’ll see what we mean. And, unlike the big, corporate players in the plug-in industry, we’re here for you! We actually read and respond to our emails, promptly (we do occasionally sleep so allow us a few hours), and you’ll likely be corresponding with the Admiral himself – the creator of these products – not some intern who knows little to nothing about them. Customer or not, if you have any questions or issues, don’t hesitate to drop us a line at sales@admiralquality.com.

    Our flagship product, the Poly-Ana VST/AU virtual-analog softsynth plug-in has to be heard to be believed. But you won’t just be impressed by its convincing analog emulation, but also by its incredibly capable voice architecture and modulation possibilities, including the ability to convert incoming audio sources into internal modulation signals and full MIDI MPE and Roli keyboard support! We also offer a “Lite” version, L’il Poly-Ana, for those who aren’t interested in full editing of the programs (but still includes all the live-performance controls you’ll likely need).

    Our SCAMP VST/AU LFO and envelope-following filter effect plug-in is the younger, bigger brother to our free product, Naive LPF. You can lose yourself for hours applying SCAMP on anything from a single instrument part to entire song mixes!

    And our latest offering, the Stunning Phaser VST/AU LFO and envelope following phaser effect plug-in, includes features you’ve never seen in a phaser before while precisely emulating an authentic, analog sound. From tasteful, classic UniVibe-like tones, to modern, space-laser madness, Stunning Phaser can do it all plus some SCAMP-inspired tricks you’ve likely never heard from a phaser before!

    Admiral Quality would like to wish everyone a happy and safe new year, and we’re looking forward to having some big new announcements for you very soon! Cheers, everyone!

    UPDATE: We’re letting the sale run a few days longer as some customers were having issues with our sales pages during the first few days. (It should all be fixed now but, as always, if there’s anything wrong just let us know and we’ll get right on it.) ACT FAST, IT’S ENDING SOON and a big thank you to all our customers and everyone who’s tried our products!

  • Admiral Quality Ends Long Term Support for Apple Platforms (1/9/2021)

    Please note: All of our products are still available in VST and AU formats for OSX and are verified working on all versions. They should continue to work until Apple makes a change that breaks them. (If you’re using a recent OSX version you will likely need to use this method to enable them: https://www.osirisguitar.com/how-to-make-unsigned-vsts-work-in-macos-catalina/ As always, we recommend you download, install and thoroughly test our products before purchasing them. All of our products run in a free demo mode with no time limits, you can even save and recall your work!)

    We regret to have to announce that Admiral Quality will no longer be producing OSX versions of our #VST/AU #plugin products in the long-term, folks. Sorry, but we can no longer afford to do business with Apple, neither financially nor morally. This has been a long time coming and GOOD RIDDANCE!

    We will continue to make the existing downloads available for our customers as long as they continue to work on all Apple platforms, but once they abandon the current format we can no longer afford to keep up. Sorry, we’re a small company and Apple’s constant intentional and needless changes create far too much unnecessary work and cost for us. They did this to you, not us. We were wrong to support their platform in the first place and we apologize. (Your existing license key-files will work on Windows too. Contact us if you need them sent to you again.)

    Update: If you’d like to know more about what we’re so unhappy about, please review this article. https://www.cnbc.com/2020/10/06/house-antitrust-subcommittee-apple-has-monopoly-power.html This is only half of it though, the other part is the constant breaking of applications with unnecessary operating system updates designed to force users to pay again for products they already bought. A game we refuse to play along with. (We’ve been doing this since 2007 and have yet to ask our customers to buy the same products again. And we have an Update Protection Policy that means it will be a long time before we ever do!)

  • One last new feature! Stunning Phaser Beta version, 0.5.2, released! (11/28/2018)

    Stunning Phaser 0.5.2
    Stunning Phaser 0.5.2

     

    Stunning Phaser Beta 0.5.2 is released, adding one final new feature — an adjustable soft-clipper for the Resonance signal. Many users were finding settings with Resonance set near maximum to be producing excessive and hard to manage peak levels. The new Resonance Clip control defaults to applying a non-linear distortion that clips at +24 dB to the Resonance signal, keeping its level in the range of sanity. This is done at the expense of some distortion applied to the resonance, but that’s perfectly typical of the behavior of analog phasers that allow Resonance to be set to full oscillation levels as well. Clip point can be adjusted anywhere between 0 dB and +24 dB (the lower you set it the more distortion will necessarily be applied to the Resonance). If you want the unclipped Resonance behavior of previous versions, just turn that knob fully counterclockwise to disable the new feature.

    Stunning Phaser is now feature-complete. All controls, behaviors, and sound are now locked-down, allowing us to re-visit the graphics for a ground-up complete re-do (very clearly needed at this point, we had no idea just how big this product would grow when we started!) in preparation for the release of version 1.0. We’ll also be adding some preset patches and a user manual, but as far as sound and behavior goes, this is the final product. (Just like our other products, we do expect to continue to grow it and add more features, but we never break existing behaviors or sound once version 1.0 has been released so you never need to fear a future update changing the sound of one of your music projects.) Those tasks are already mostly complete and we don’t expect it will be much longer before 1.0 is released, so try it now while the big 60% Off Buy-it-in-Beta deal’s still on!

    Thanks to everyone who provided feedback and suggestions during the Beta period, you’ve helped make this a very stand-out and unique product! Now back to work on the new graphics…
