URS releases Saturation plug-in for Windows
Saturation plug-in features four Vintage Pre Amplifier Algorithms:
- Class A Tube Mic Pre Amplifier – Vintage Motorcity
This algorithm digitally recreates the characteristics of a American tube mic pre amplifier that was popular in recording studios during the 1960′s Motown era. Setting the drive control higher will add desired harmonics and tube soft clipping for a much more pronounced effect.
- Class A Tube Mic Pre Amplifier – German
This algorithm digitally recreates a German tube mic pre amplifier that was popular in European recording studios during early 1960′s Beatles era. This type of tube pre amplifier is coveted for it’s unique distortion, presence and authority in the treble ranges.
- Class A Discrete Pre Amplifier – British
This algorithm digitally recreates the sought after classic British console all discrete mic pre saturation. This vintage amplifier was also used for the console’s summing buss amplifiers. The added harmonics create the edge that is desired in both Rock and R&B music.
- Class A Discrete JFet Pre Amplifier – Modern
This algorithm digitally recreates a modern JFet mic pre amplifier that comes the closest of any discrete device to tube saturation. Although similar to a tube it has its own unique harmonic structure and sound.
URS Saturation Plug-in is currently available for a special introduction price of $199.99 USD (normal price $249.99 USD).
