Type B is a plugin by AudioThing that emulates the famous vintage exciter effect, which is more often used to enhance dull recordings where the high-frequency content was missing due to tape overdubs. AudioThing does even more than that, you can control the internal filter, use a harmonic generator, and more.

Let’s Get Into how It Works…

The way Exciter work is generating high-frequency content that is not part of the original signal using a combination of filtering and distortion (harmonic generator), The input signal goes into a filter (usually highpass, but you can also choose bandpass with Type B) before feeding it into the harmonic generator.

What I find interesting about this plugin is that you have controls over the generated harmonic using the color parameter, you also get some ready to use preset, so, you might as well start from there, and tweak as you see fit.
