OverTone DSP has released the PTC-2A, an equalizer effect plug-in for Windows.

Inspired by the classic Pultec EQs and modelled using measured data and schematics from real hardware, using algorithms originally developed for the linuxDSP PEQ-2A, the PTC-2A is an affordable emulation of one of the most sought-after vintage EQs, for Windows XP / 7 Digital Audio Workstations.

PTC-2A features

  • Separate LF Boost and Attenuate Controls — Simultaneous low frequency boost and cut, emulating the classic Pultec ‘Low-end trick’.
  • Physical Control Weighting — Replicates the ‘feel’ as well as the look of high quality rotary controls.
  • Passive Filters — 6dB / Octave passive filter emulation maintains the smooth frequency response and desirable control interaction of the original vintage designs.
  • Transformer-coupled gain stage — Similar to the original Pultec EQs, the passive filters are followed by a transformer-coupled tube amplifier stage which further enhances the vintage qualities.
  • De-cramped Mid-Range Filter — Innovative DSP technology models the behaviour of an analogue peak filter more closely than conventional digital algorithms, even at low sample rates.

The PTC-2A for Windows (VST) is available to purchase for £39.95 GBP.

linuxDSP has announced the addition of the SR-2B stereo reverb plugin to the OverTone range of Windows VST plug-ins.

The SR-2B is an algorithmic reverb designed to be economical with CPU, without compromising the processing quality.

It features an interpolated sub-sample pre-delay, together with fully adjustable stereo width, reverb size and HF damping controls.

SR-2B features

  • Interpolated Pre-Delay – Smoothly adjustable pre-delay control with sub-sample resolution.
  • Stereo Width Control – Full adjustment of the stereo image.
  • Adjustable Damping – Variable damping frequency simulates different reverb spaces.
  • Switchable “Wet” Output – Switch off the unprocessed signal for easy integration with a separate reverb buss in a DAW.
  • Proven High Quality DSP – Built on the same DSP algorithms as the popular linuxDSP SR-2A reverb.
  • Universal GUI – Unlike many other free LV2 plugins, the GUI works equally well in a Qt host application e.g. Qtractor as it does in a GTK host e.g. Ardour.

SR-2B for Windows (VST) is available for download in demo mode, an activation key costs £10 GBP (includes Linux version).
