1st March 2006
Nomad Factory has released the Analog Signature Pack and BlueVerb DRV-2080
The Analog Signature Pack consists of three plug-ins:
- Dual Limiting Amplifier LM-662
- Program Equalizer EQP-4
- Studio Channel SC-226
Dual Limiting Amplifier LM-662 is a recreation of the classic Fairchild 670 limiter - when using the LM-662, music and instruments react the same as a Fairchild 670 does.
- Useful as a limiter or a compressor depending on the program material and control settings.
- Dual channel (dual mono) - A/B with individual controls.
- Fast attack time with variable release time from .3 seconds to 10 seconds.
Program Equalizer EQP-4 is a full range stereo channel unit, featuring low and high cut, low and high frequency boost and attenuation (shelving or peaking) as well as two overlapping bands of equalization. The two mid-range frequency sections has variable bandwidth, boost/attenuation (peaking) and frequency selector. All these features allow the Program Equalizer EQP-4 to handle several EQ'ing chores, from the subtleties of mastering to radical tone shaping often needed during tracking. It is intended to recreate the warmth of classic analog hardware equalizers.
Studio Channel SC-226 is a stereo channel recording plug-in, featuring four band equalizer, an analog "signature" optical compressor and at the heart of the shelving and bell filters, a tube simulator and Brick-Wall peak limiter designed to reproduce the warmth of vintage recordings with quality and realism. The Studio Channel is a tube style virtual equalizer / compressor; it is equally suited for delicate vocal as well as dynamic instrument recordings such as lead guitar, bass guitar, drums and horns. The algorithm was designed to emulate the response of a high-end vintage analog equalizer/compressor.
BlueVerb DRV-2080 is a vintage-style studio reverb with individual two-band equalization, as well as ambiance, decay RT60 and pre-delay controls. It has the flexibility to custom craft your sound - from sweetening mono or stereo tracks to simply adding dimension to an entire mix. It is intended to recreate the qualities of vintage-style digital reverbs from the 80's.
All plug-ins feature:
- Up to 192 kHz sample rates supported (96 kHz for BlueVerb).
- Automate any control.
- Factory presets.
All plug-ins are available for Windows and Mac OS X in VST, AU and RTAS formats. Intel-Mac versions are planned for the 3rd quarter of 2006.
The Analog Signature Pack costs $287; the plug-ins can also be purchased individually for $149 each. BlueVerb DRV-2080 costs $179. Demo versions are available.
