TriTone Digital has announced the releases of two new plug-ins for Mac OS X: ClassicTone-56 and PulTone-FL.
ClassicTone-56, ($99 intro, $129 list), is a true-to-the-original recreation of one of the best sounding graphic EQs ever made. These graphic EQs are found in consoles and lunch boxes around the world and are prized for their punchiness and girth.
ClassicTone-56 features 10 bands. From low to high the bands are: 31 Hz, 63 Hz, 125 Hz, 250 Hz, 500 Hz, 1 kHz, 2 kHz, 4 kHz, 8 kHz and 16 kHz. All bands are capable of 12 dB of boost or cut.
PulTone-FL, ($79 intro, $99 list), is a recreation of a super-sweet passive program filter set. This studio classic is one of the best ways to tweak and shape tracks to create space in a mix or to create limited frequency range effects like the classic "telephone" vocal. These are the smoothest filters for carving your tracks into new and unique shapes.
PulTone-FL features two filter bands, one low-cut and one hi-cut. The frequencies for the low-cut are 50 Hz, 80 Hz, 100 Hz, 150 Hz, 250 Hz, 500 Hz, 750 Hz, 1 kHz, 1.5 kHz and 2 kHz. The frequencies for the hi-cut are 1.5 kHz, 2 kHz, 3 kHz, 4 kHz, 5 kHz, 6 kHz, 8 kHz, 10 kHz, 12 kHz and 15 kHz.
PulTone-FL also allows each band to move between "cut" and "expand" modes. Just use the slider below each band to move between the far left position (full cut, true to the original) and the far right positions (full expand, the reverse curve of the full cut). This unique enhancement allows PulTone-FL to act as both a super-smooth vintage filter or a uniquely silky boost EQ - or any point in-between.
Initially, both plug-ins are available for Mac OS X in VST, AU and RTAS formats (Pluggo runtime required). Demo versions are available. Windows versions are coming soon.
