Timemachine is vintage sampler simulator.

TimeMachine is a VST plugin that provides accurate reproduction of the characteristic sound of vintage samplers, such as the Commodore 64, or older Akai samplers. The (virtual) sampling rate can be varied, as well as the number of bits used for digital representation. furthermore, aliasing distortion can be generated individually for AD and DA conversion.

No longer works in current version of audacity, shows up in plugins but does nothing when clicked on. Shame I really liked this plugin.

You don't activate it in the plugins tab anymore, but in the add effect tab. then you go to the plugin and press on it

When I tried to put the plugin in audacity, it just said error failed to load. Or it forces me to go to mixpad.

If it says failed to load library, make sure you download the 32-bit version instead of the 64-bit version as Audacity is 32-bit.

I had some trouble downloading this until I figured out that I apparently had multiple Audacity programs on my computer. So if you're out of options, try and make sure that you're downloading it to "the right Audacity."

This is one of the few free resamplers that can do the Drake / Noah Shebib "underwater" sound (downsampling without the aliasing)

FL 11 32bit, works out of the box without no registry patch needed. It is cool, but i feel like TobyBear Sample reducer gives more harmonics.

For some reason, I have the newest version of audacity (3.0.2) and TB Time Machine fails to load every single time, I reinstalled Audactiy, checked the x86 folder and everything, can someone explain to me how to fix it?
megasaturn Jan 01 2022

ÉFirst of all, audacity in that new version supports 64-bit plugins instead of 32-bit so consider downloading the 64-bit plugin. I would rather have audacity 2.4.2 because the 3.0 is a spyware tbh

This does not work, it says that the dll file failed
JTGB06 Sep 04 2021

I had the same problem. I downloaded the 32 bit version like others suggested and it still didn't work. I was watching a video on Youtube on how to install Time Machine and it said to drag the .dll file into the plugin folder. I did that with no luck. I noticed that there is a .key file in the folder along with the .dll but the video didn't say to drag it into the Audacity plugin folder so I never did. I figured it might be worth a try so I dragged both the .dll and the .key file into the Audacity plugin folder and it finally worked.

So i tried downloading this and it said it was a key file and not a NY file, I also got an error message that said "Effect or Command at C:Program Files (x86)Audacityplug-inTB_TimeMachine.dll failed to register: Could not load the library" does anyone know what this means?

Same here. This issue seems to be consistent with Audacity; either an updated plugin or a new version of Audacity is causing this.
Planet Jul 28 2021
Jul 28 2021
Oh I realize the issue now. You have to use the 32 bit version if using Audacity, because Audacity is 32 bit? I just read a bit down in the comments here and that solution worked for me.

Beware - this will hard-cut audio input at 18-19 kHz. It applies some sort of low-pass filter or noise-reduction, so it's not transparent bit reduction.
Ike Apr 17 2021
Apr 17 2021
Naturally, bit-reduction also comes with removal of high frequency content. That is to be expected and not unusual at all.
Gaston Apr 26 2021
Apr 26 2021
No, Ike, bit reduction is independent of the sampling frequency.
Hay Jun 15 2021
Jun 15 2021
It's not bit reduction. Its bit reduction AND sample rate reduction!

If you want to use this with Audacity, remember that Audacity is 32 bit, so you'll need that version.

Ronald, I'm pretty absolutely sure the developer intended it that way. Probably didn't think anyone would even think of asking that.

How do you install it on Mac version?
NateQ Apr 09 2020
Apr 09 2020
To install on Mac (I had to figure it out) you need to go to the plugins folder which is hidden. In the Finder use the 'Go' menu at the top bar > 'Go to folder' and type this in : /Applications/Audacity.app/Contents/plug-ins/ That will open a finder window of the plug-in folder that you have to put the .vst file in.Then launch Audacity, go to the Tools menu, Add/Load Plug-ins, find it in the list and click 'enable' and it will appear on your effects menu. Only issue for me is the Graphical interface doesn't work so I had to switch off the graphic interface in the option panel located as 3 lines in the lower left corner of the Time Machine window.

Actually redact my last comment. I spent the time working out what values I would need to paste into the parameters in order to use a specific sampling rate, only to discover that the GUI is misleading. It appears to snap to equal divisions of 44100, like 22050, and the number shown for the sample rate is just for show. Either this is a bug or it's just plain lying.

This must be (one of) the best and smoothest bitcrushers out there. Commodore sounds or AKAI S1000ish sampling. One of my rigs are a retro electronica setup and this fits right in. Work with win xp too.

Fantastic emulation. even for other well known vintage equipment, once your get the specs online you truly go back into time... well done!
