Leapwing has announced its first signature plugin, developed with legendary producer-engineer Al Schmitt.
The Al Schmitt signature plugin has six distinct profiles: vocal, piano, bass, brass, strings, and mix (bus).
Each one has different sonic characteristics and parameters based on Al’s workflow and perception of each instrument; distilled to minimal controls, and conceived to allow users to get their sound instantly.
Al Schmitt is an industry veteran who has been recording artists for over seven decades, from Frank Sinatra, Ray Charles and Miles Davis, to Johnny Cash, Steely Dan, Barbra Streisand, Celine Dion and Paul McCartney. Very few within the music industry have overseen more culture-defining artistic moments.
As a winner of 20 Grammy Awards, two Latin Grammys and a Trustees Grammy for Lifetime Achievement, Schmitt has helped artists garner an astounding 160 gold and platinum albums. He was honoured as the only engineer ever with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 2015.
