Abbey Road’s Tape. Preamps. Vocal Effects. Reverbs. Consoles. Vinyl Effects. Mastering Gear. The Complete Rare Signal Path—in Your DAW

  • The Power of Authentic Analog Tape

    The J37 tape machine was the centerpiece of Abbey Road’s recording process. Detailed modeling has captured its distinctive warmth and character, as well as different tape formulations, speeds, and bias settings.

    Features: Glue Mixes without “Squashing”
  • The Complete Abbey Road Mastering Chain

    The modular TG Mastering Chain has been an integral part of Abbey Road’s mastering suites since the 70s. From Pink Floyd to Nirvana to Ed Sheeran, this has been the secret ingredient that adds coherence and authority to any mix.

  • Legendary Reverbs: Chambers to Plates

    Abbey Road’s plate and chamber reverbs are instantly recognizable for their depth and warmth, as well as for their haunting qualities on classic vocal performances—most famously John Lennon’s vocal on the Beatles’ “A Day in the Life.” You get all these reverb flavors in the Abbey Road Collection.

    Features: Fast and Efficient Operation
  • Ultra-Rare Gear: Saturation, Compression and EQ

    Abbey Road were known to develop their own gear throughout the 50s, 60s and 70s. These units were crucial in fashioning the Abbey Road sound. The ultra-rare Abbey Road Saturator, RS124 Compressor and RS56 Passive EQ plugins add their distinctive wizardry to the signal chain.

    Features: From Vocals to “The Ringo Drum Sound”
  • ADT: The Vocal Effect Created for John Lennon

    The Abbey Road Collection includes Reel ADT—a precise emulation the tape-based vocal doubling effect, originally invented to allow John Lennon to double-track his vocals automatically. Create richer, thicker, more textured vocal takes with this faithful modeling of the immediately recognizable effect.

    Features: Multiple Modes Fit Different Material
  • The Vinyl Time Machine

    Bring back the sound of yesterday—and today: this precise model of Abbey Road’s vinyl cutting and playback gear gives your music the vintage warmth of vinyl records, played on classic turntables, using classic styluses.

    Features: Precision Modeled Transformers
  • Classic Console Channel Strips

    From the tube-powered REDD desks that recorded the Beatles in the 1960s, to the solid-state TG12345 that powered the Beatles’ Abbey Road and Pink Floyd’s The Dark Side of the Moon, Abbey Road’s consoles have seen it all. Their carefully curated EQ controls, and brilliant dynamics processing, were key to forging the sound of rock and pop’s greatest classics.
