We are very excited to announce that we are officially carrying all of the incredible plugins from PSP Audioware! In this article, we'll highlight some of our favorites
InfiniStrip Channel Strip
Of course, we have to start off with the coolest one, InfiniStrip! InfiniStrip is a channel strip that is infinitely configurable (see what they did there?) with the included 24 independent modules.
This strip is made up of modules like 5 different preamps, 3 of the most famous compressors, easy to use tools like filters and dynamics control, EQ's and a new limiter and Saturator. You can even start with one of the 150 presets made by professionals. Every tool you could ever need to complete a solid mix is available within this plugin. Save for a delay or two...
Lexicon PSP42 Stereo Delay
Don't worry, I got one. Lexicon's hardware delays and reverbs can be found in almost any major studio. For decades, they have delivered effects that glue a mix together. PSP was able to able to recreate the magic inside this hardware box and put it into yours. From short delays for creating lo-fi effects to long delays up to 9600ms, the PSP 42 will get it done.
Another killer feature is the built-in tape style saturation. Just like the original PCM-42, the PSP 42 absorbs the high frequencies and harmonically distorts the wet signal. The result is a delayed sound that sits further back from the dry signal, filling in the spaces in between. You can drive the input to get more distortion if the mix calls for it.
Nexellence Necklace Type Spring Reverb
Necklace-Type Spring Reverbs are not something the average engineer hears about on forums and video tutorials. A Necklace reverb brings us all the way back to the Hammond organs of the 1960's. Sound on Sound does a great job of describing them:
"The design involved a length of spring loosely hanging within the organ housing, and delivered a particular, desirable sound. The downside was that external knocks and vibrations could also be picked up."
PSP Audio's Nexellence plugin uses two different processing engines that you can use independently, or even combined. At the front end, the limiter keeps the plugin from clipping, but also gives you the opportunity to smash the source before going into the springs. This, in combination with the Color knob, EQ section and width control make this the most versatile spring reverb plugin on the market.
PSP Plugin Bundles
These are just our favorites, but PSP has lots of other plugins. If you want a great deal, you can check out all of the bundles that PSP has put together. Some examples include the VintageDyn bundle (vintage compressors), Reverb Bundle, Vintage EQ, and many more that you can find here.
