The RX950 Classic AD/DA Converter AUv3 effect processor emulates the sound character of the legendary AKAI S950 12-bit sampler!

Mathieu Demange released back in March the RX950 classic AD/DA converter plugin for PC & Mac. It’s an effect processor that recreates accurately the sound colour of the best-known AKAI S950 sampler.

Today, the developer announced the official release of the AUv3 version of this plugin. Same as the plugin, it adds to any audio signal the unique grit and warm distortion. In my opinion, an interesting app especially for beat producer (Beatmaker 3) that loves the sound of this vintage sampler.


Meet the RX950 Classic AD/DA Converter, our first effect plug-in, designed to perfectly mimic the whole AD/DA conversion process of the Akai S950 in order to give your music this vintage, warm and crunchy sound with the ease & flexibility of an VST/AU/RE/AUv3 plugin.


  • Legendary 12-bit resolution
  • Perfect modelling of the S950’s audio signal path
  • Adjustable audio bandwidth (and thus sampling frequency)
  • Original steep 6th-order low-pass Butterworth filter
  • Stereo or mono operation
  • Low CPU consumption
  • Supports AUv3 and Inter-App Audio

How does it work:

The Input Gain Knob makes your sound loud’n’proud with the S950’s unique grit and warm distortion. It’s powerful and will help anything stand out in your mix.
The Audio Bandwidth Knob controls the target sample rate and analog-to-digital conversion circuitry with an exquisite, yet remarkably subtle, aliasing effect. The Filter Knob controls the S950’s infamous steep low-pass filter. Use it on separate elements, or on any output bus or master section.

RX950 Classic AD/DA Converter is now available for iOS AUv3 for a price of $1.99 USD on the Apple App Store.
