RC-20 Retro Color now on Splice Rent-to-Own

Stockholm-based XLN Audio, a music software company co-owned by legendary hitmaker Max Martin, has partnered with leading music production platform Splice to make one of its most popular production tools available at a more musician-friendly price point for the first time.

RC-20’s six unique FX modules can replicate everything from vinyl records to VHS machines, adding noise, wobble and dropouts to a track. Its raw distortion and crunchy bit reduction will add grit to bass and drums. The Space and chorus effects can make guitars sing like never before, and the filtering effects fit right into the most modern club track.

XLN’s RC-20 Retro Color is now available to producers for the introductory rate of $4.99/month (for 20 months) through Splice Rent-to-Own, a unique, musician-friendly distribution model that makes world-class production tools more financially accessible. With Rent-to-Own, creators get instant access to creation software and pay off the retail price over time in small monthly installments with no interest. Splice is proud to provide musicians with a path to ownership of their software, unlike traditional subscription models that do not enable musicians to build equity by owning their tools.

RC-20 Retro Color is a creative effect plugin that adds life and texture to any recording.
It has become a staple for a new generation of producers and musicians worldwide for its ability to recreate the warm, cozy feeling of vintage recording equipment, while still syncing perfectly with any modern production setting.


XLN Audio is a music software company located in Stockholm, Sweden. Since the company was founded in 2005, XLN Audio’s main goal has been to develop market-leading music creation tools that are inspiring, powerful, and easy to use.

The company is co-owned by Max Martin, one of the most successful music producers and songwriters in history.


Splice is evolving the way people create, connect, and collaborate.

Over three million musicians — from Top 40 hitmakers to bedroom producers — come to Splice to get started or unstuck, move forward and make progress on their music. Splice was founded in 2013 by Steve Martocci and Matt Aimonetti with a belief that an open music ecosystem will empower musicians to realize their creative potential.
