Sonimus has announced Britson, an upcoming console emulation plug-in for Windows and Mac.
Britson, besides being a subtle saturator, can be very aggressive if volume is increased from the input.
Just like with a real unit, THD (total harmonic distortion) is low at normal levels, but can easily reach the clipping point without loss of dynamics at normal levels.
Britson’s sound can be very aggressive without the need for a specific switch dedicated to that purpose.
- Flexibility to be used subtly or aggressively (to overdrive virtual or real instruments, for example).
- Two Saturation Modes: Normal (subtle distortion, high dynamic range) and Fat (hotter signal, lower dynamic range).
- Optional Stereo Crosstalk which lends a sense of depth and three-dimensionality to your mixes.
- Filters (both low and high pass). Britson’s filters are tuned to sound sweet and pleasant to the ear.
- Saturation which can be disabled (when using Britson for trim and metering purposes exclusively).
- Three EQ Color Mode options(on Britson Buss instance) for use on your master track: Default (no color), Master Loudness, and Master Bright.
- Zero latency and no group delay.
- Carefully optimized algorithm for low CPU consumption. Britson allows for a remarkably high number of instances per session.
- Internal 64-bit floating point double-precision.
- Hassle-free installation. No activation or serial. Each buyer receives a personalized copy for use in the studio, on the laptop, etc.
Briston will be available to purchase on March 18th, 2014, priced at $39 USD.
