[JPL] the good ol' days?

This is not an April Fools joke early as Jim says. There are actually  
a lot of new plugs ins for Pro Tools and a variety of other DAW  
applications designed to replicate things like old reverb effects,  
guitar distortion effects, etc.  I saw this demoed recently along  
with a bunch of other useful Production tools. (you did notice some  
of the other plug in software that they offer ?) It's a way of  
bringing these sounds in to the production environment that these  
days rarely has things like turntables. There were two examples used  
in the demo. One was used as an effect on music for a film (it was  
run at bed level as a background effect so subtle) and the other had  
samples of different instruments run through it used in a music mix.  
Film is probably where you'll see something like this used . Makes it  
easier on the Foley guy. It was actually pretty accurate. You can  
also isolate the desired effects you'd like as opposed to a real  
turntable, where it would be hard to do so. It seems counter  
intuitive but given the music production environment these days it  
really make sense.
