Pulsar Modular has released P42 Climax, a line amp emulation for tone shaping/coloration, saturation, that aims to conjure more of the idea of working with hardware. Sculpt your sound whether processing a single instrument, grouped tracks, the 2-bus or even when mastering. They say:
P42 Climax can assimilate the line amp of many different coloring hardware devices like the Neve 1080, Studer A812 Tape recorder, SSL Fusion and WolfBox DI. How do you get the Motown sound? You will need the Wolfbox DI made in the late 60s and used by the recording studios at that time for the signature bass guitar sound.
A 20-day fully functional trial demo is available.
