Snapshot 2 - free plug-in for audio hardware lovers

Recommended Posts

If you use hardware with your DAW this plugin can come in handy!

What is Snapshot?

Snapshot is a simple idea, take a picture of anything you are using in your recording session and store it in the tracks of your DAW.

  • Got a sound on your vintage 1176 compressor you've set for the vocal? Snapshot it.
  • Got a guitar amp setting you just love? Snapshot it.
  • Want to recall the mic set-up on your cabs or drum kit? Snapshot it.

Snap it on your phone, send it to your computer and save it in your session using the free Snapshot plug-in. You can also add notes to each instance of Snapshot. It's like a chinagraph for the 21st century.

Snapshot works with all major DAWs, uses minimal resources and is simple to use ... and did we say it's free?

Download Snapshot for Pro Tools, Logic Pro X, Cubase, Studio One, in fact, any DAW that supports AAX, AU or VST plug-in formats.

  • Snapshot now supports Windows 10 as well as macOS 10.9 and above
  • Load several images into Snapshot and move through them easily
  • Snapshot now displays each image in a set in their original aspect ratio

Not a bad idea for Hardware - though you could just as easily take a photo and put it in the project folder.

 I did something similar for Virtual Effects, by using the Fn+'stamp' (print) key on my keyboard.

I used to do this with my projects when I had a string of effects with a particular sound I liked. Fn+Print > Ctrl+V in project folder.  Gave me a screen grab of my project so that I could reproduce it at a later date (if anything went skewy).
