Antresol brings in the classic Mistress stomp box back to life. The original, conceived in the mid-70s, quickly became a benchmark for flanger-type effects by offering a uniquely rich character. Antresol is a thorough incarnation of this classic and the newest effect in the SilverLine Collection.

An exceptionally accurate emulation of an impulse-controlled, solid-state analog delay line (a Bucket Brigade Device) is a center piece of Antresol. Its users are provided with absolute control over every aspect of the BBD-based delay line (including calibration of the linearity of the clocking system or the number of analog memory cells constituting the backbone of the BBD).

In addition to the standard parameter knobs found on the face of the original unit, there is also a wide range of deeper parameters available to tweak, such the on-PCB trimpots which would normally be inaccessible without taking the stompbox apart. Also fully controllable LFO (with adjustable phase and rate sync to a host application's tempo). The ability to unlink the stereo channels and control the most important parameters independently for left and right (or mid/side, depending on selected mode)

Key features:

  • True emulation of BBD based analog delay line.
  • Optional independent parameter control for each stereo channel.
  • Selectable L/R or M/S stereo processing modes.
  • Mistress mode allows the whole unit to work the same as the classic flanger.
  • LFO can be synchronized with your host application.
  • 3 different LFO-to-BBD clock curves.
  • Ultra-low aliasing output.
  • Highly musical and pleasant sound.
  • Tag-based browser.
  • Selectable GUI sizes.
  • MIDI-learn functionality throughout.
  • 64-bit internal processing.

Yeah, cool... Flangers are still not very popular among developers. So I still miss a good one. Will test yours.

This announcement makes my day!! There was already several products offering thinly disguised emulations of the Electro Harmonix's EM (eg. in the AmpliTube suite IIRC). But after ArtsAcoustic's Big Rock, which I happily purchased and used, I was for quite some time waiting for a product claiming to offer a /faithful/ (if not 100% perfect, like AA does with Big Rock -- D16 only states "exceptionally accurate", which to any neurotic nerdy and anal-retentive maniac might just not sound good enough) reproduction of the original Electric Mistress, in order to round up a set of essential Jarre-oriented effects. I had a couple of time asked to AA whether they'd consider doing to the EM what they already did for the Smallstone (could never even get a reply BTW, a shame -- although I know they are a very small company (smaller than D16 maybe?) and since I was not a customer but only a potential one, well...). Doesn't matter much now anyway! Looks like this fits the bill and will prolly be my next purchase... Thanks D16 for finally bringing an accurate Electric Mistress emulation (way too long expected stuff!!).
