PSP SpringBox

PSP Audioware are one of my favorite plug-in makers. From Poland they create my all time favorite plug-in PSP N2O which used to be called Nitro. They have just released a spring reverb emulation called SpringBox. I have an Ekdahl Moisterizer but I still have my eye on finally getting a spring in plug-in form. Let me know if you tried this and if you think it sounds like hardware. $49 until May 1 then it goes to $69.

“PSP SpringBox is an emulation of a hardware spring reverberator (VST, AAX and RTAS for Windows; AudioUnit, VST, AAX and RTAS for Mac OSX). It recreates several features typical of a spring reverb, such as a convincing “boing” on transients and a repeatable resonating musical character with an adjustable presence. A selection of configurations from two to six springs total is provided, as well as the ability to set stereo spread and pan/balance configured to suit various mix setups – from a typical guitar reverb to a creative uses as a send reverb in the mix. Thanks to PSP SpringBox’s two channel A and B settings setup and range of presets operation is fast and easy.” – pspaudioware.com

PSP N2O

One of my all time favorite plug-ins PSP Nitro has been replaced with an all new version. I’ve used Nitro on almost every song I’ve recorded the past few years because it has a very unique and nice sound quality. It mangled audio but also has a professional sounding sheen. The replacement called N2O was rewritten from scratch, adds new modules, extended modulation and about 200 presets. Upgrade price is $69 until Dec 31. $149 to buy it new. More videos: click here

“Up to four sound processing operators at a time; among the available types are: morphing resonant and formant filters, eq, delay, reverb, pitch-shifter, compressor/expander, bitcrusher, distortion, full-wave rectifier and many more. Up to four modulators at a time; the list includes: LFO, envelope detector, ADSR step sequencer. Built-in limiter that uses algorithms from our extremely well regarded PSP Xenon hi-definition mastering limiter. Sidechain (key) input. Expandable architecture – new operators and modulator types to be added in future versions while preserving backward compatibility. – pspaudioware.com
