71 - Px - Commerce

The loudspeaker and intercom effects aren’t just variations of a single program, and there’s a lot of different algorithms generating them. Try them all - what we think is a soundtruck might be your ideal radio-on-the- porch … The effects in this bank should in general be used 100 percent “wet”, as they incorporate their own mixing.

#7110 Airplane Background

This generates a complex machine hum that’s great in stereo. With a little extra filtering, it can be just about any background from a tank interior to a starship. The Throttle button makes the engines speed up and slow down, while Bong gives you a realistic flight-attendant call. Accel controls how quickly Throttle does its thing. The tourist cabin is noisier because someone left a window open back there. Nothing in, stereo out.

What does your morning show really sound like to the listeners? Here’s an authentic-sounding tiny speaker in a plastic box, with some annoying alarm-clock beeps, so you can find out. Summed in, mono out.

#7112 Fries With That?

A typical drive-through’s outdoor speaker, with adjustable distortion and muffle. Quality and intelligibility varies with your choice of restaurant The Ritz, MacBurger, or Road Kill Unlimited. The Distrt (distortion) and Muffle settings are slightly interactive, so, if you decide to customize one, you should also adjust the other. Mono in, mono out.

#7113 Office Intercom

This is a traditional squawk box - it beeps when you call someone, and there’s some reverb thrown in to make the speaker sound natural. Select the kind of office, which influences the quality of the sound and also the reverb. The input is muted until you hit the Call button. Mono in, stereo out.

#7115 Talking Dashboard

Makes your voice sound badly digitized, mixes it with warning beep, and adds a stereo car-interior slap… just like a seat belt or burglar alarm warning. The distortion, band limiting, and stereo diffusion also makes this great for simulating a pair of open headphones. Mono in, stereo out.
