Line 6 has announced the release of Echo Farm 3.0 as a 64-Bit native plug-in for any DAW on Mac OS X and Windows supporting VST2, VST3, AU and AAX plug-in formats.
Originally introduced in 2001 as a Pro Tools TDM plug-in, Echo Farm was used on countless hit records produced in studios throughout the world. Echo Farm 3.0 not only brings those classic effects to modern Pro Tools users, the 64-bit native AAX plug-in also provides backward compatibility with previously created sessions—and now AU and VST support enable Echo Farm to be used within any popular DAW for the first time ever.
Echo Farm 3.0 features models based on vintage hardware units such as the Roland RE-101 Space Echo, Boss DM-2, Electro-Harmonix Memory Man, TC Electronic 2290, and Maestro Echoplexes, plus Line 6 originals.
Echo Farm 3.0 is fully programmable and automatable, providing total control over the sound and responsiveness of every model—including tape wow n' flutter, swept-filter modulation speed, bit resolution, and more. Lock to the global tempo of your session, following any tempo variations, or quickly set the delay time manually via a virtual knob, tap tempo, or by selecting BPM and note value. The unique Time Ramp feature also lets you create realistic pitch-smear effects when adjusting delay times on tape- and analog-type delays.
A time-limited demo version of Echo Farm 3.0 can be activated at line6.com/ilok.
Price: $199.99 for new purchases and $49 for upgrades from the TDM version.
