DUY is a plug-in manufacturer based in Barcelona. Creators of the legendary DaD Valve, DaD Tape and DUY Wide, as well as Magic Spectrum, the Hollywood industry standard for ADR. DUY software is used by companies such as Disney, Sony, Warner Bros, Skywalker, Technicolor, Todd-AO Soundelux, Electronic Arts, Deluxe, 20th Century Fox, as well as record producers like David Reitzas, Mutt Lange, Eric Bazilian, Ben Fenner, Mike Hedges, Chris Porter, Rafa Sardina and Spike Stent, among many others.
Time Travel encapsulates the essence of each technological era’s impact on sound. It meticulously models the dynamic range, frequency content, and physical properties of historical recording technologies for a truly auditory journey through time.
Beyond emulation, Time Travel grants granular control over three core elements: dynamics, frequency, and physical modeling, with each parameter adjustable to pinpoint a specific moment in audio history. This paradigm allows for the creation of soundscapes that can unite the hiss of a 1960s cassette, the warmth of a vinyl record, and the precision of modern digital processing.
The core innovation of Time Travel lies in the smooth transition between eras, a feature that sets it apart as a unique multidimensional audio morphing tool. Whether a subtle evolution or a rapid shift is desired, the speed parameter adjusts the pace of sonic transformation across technological milestones, allowing listeners to navigate seamlessly through the soundscapes of different eras, from the crackling warmth of early phonographs to the crystalline clarity of modern-day digital streaming.
Time Travel is not only able of stimulate artistic ingenuity, but also to revolutionize aural storytelling. With its user-friendly interface, it whisks users away on a sonic odyssey, offering dynamic reshaping of audio to flow smoothly between time periods, thanks to its sophisticated algorithm and nuanced modeling of historical sound profiles.
Ideal for mixing, mastering, or creating unique soundscapes, Time Travel transcends traditional boundaries of audio processing. It empowers users to craft new sound perspectives and offers endless creativity in mixing and producing music, voiceovers, and special effects.
Time Travel is the dazzling result of collaboration between DSPATIAL and DUY technologies, combining their respective expertise in spatial and temporal sound manipulation.
Fully compatible with major Digital Audio Workstations (DAWs), supporting AAX, VST3, and Audio Units, Time Travel is available for both Windows and Mac.

We have spent the last 25 years developing exclusive signal processing algorithms.
During this 25-year journey, we have created algorithms such as Magic Spectrum, the standard ADR in Hollywood, the classical DaD Valve and DaD Tape, or more recently LucidVerb, the first-ever convolution reverberation with rendeded IRs.
To celebrate our 25th anniversary, in 2022 we will be making offers of the first products we launched at the 1997 NAMM in Anaheim. Stay tuned!Read More
We proudly present LucidVerb, the first ever DNA model based convolution reverberation.
LucidVerb features a proprietary sonic DNA modeler engine able to render any number of totally decorrelated impulse responses at lightning speed.
Those IRs feed real-time convolutions resulting in an extremely immersive spatial sound with an overall dynamics of more than 120 dB.”
Instead of sampling impulse responses (IRs) of the rooms and spaces, LucidVerb creates models that define the spaces by means of geometrical and physical parameters. It samples the “DNA” of the space by defining size, shape, surfaces and other physical parameters, before transferring them to the rendering engine. Those parameters can always be modified so that any space can be emulated.
With other technologies adjust reverb time is often a challenge. With LucidVerb, the reverberation length can be changed from 0.1 to 10 seconds without switching presets or readjusting any other settings. The size and length of the featured IRs can be modified to match the space being simulated while retaining sonic integrity and character, making programming much easier.
– A library of more than 400 impulse responses (IRs)
– Indoor and Outdoor space simulation
– 0.1 to 10 seconds reverb time range for all IRs
– Dual reverb mode for seamless real-time scene changes on each instance
– Up to 9.1 channels ( 7.1.2 ) within standard Pro Tools tracks and buses. Up to 7.1 in Audio Units Host.
– Multichannel, stereo or mono inputs in standard Pro Tools (AAX) and Logic Audio (Audio Units) tracks
– Reverberation channels are fully decorrelated IRs
– Rehearsal model with 4 sound files
– AAX2 standard and Audio Units native plug-in versions
– Full compatibility with Pro Tools Ultimate 2018
– 7.1.2 and 7.0.2 channels, compatible with Dolby Atmos beds (Only in Pro Tools)
– 120 dB dynamic range
LucidVerb includes the 64 bit AAX and AU versions for Mac OSX.Read More
