Acustica Audio has announced the release a new vintage military-inspired plugin suite. Brown packs the emulations of hardware units originally made for the US Army and used in radio broadcasts in the ’40s and ’50s.

Due to their striking sonic character, these units became widely used in recording and mixing studios worldwide.
