URS Saturation Plug-in v2.5

  • Six Vintage Pre Amplifier Algorithms
  • Two Tape Saturation Algorithms
  • Two Transformer Core Saturation Algorithms
  • Even and Odd Ordered Harmonics
  • Tube and Discrete Analog Saturation
  • Soft Clipping
  • Native Support Only - RTAS, Audio Units and VST
The URS Saturation plug-in v2.5 includes ten vintage analog algorithms

The six digitally recreated Pre Amplifiers add different and distinct vintage even and odd ordered harmonics,
input stage saturation and soft clipping.

The six Pre Amplifier Saturation algorithms include:

  • Class A Tube Mic Pre Amplifier - Vintage Motorcity
  • Class A Tube Mic Pre Amplifier - German
  • Class A Discrete Pre Amplifier - British
  • Class A Discrete JFet Pre Amplifier - Modern
  • Class A Tube Mic Pre Amplifier - 1951
  • Class A Tube Mic Pre Amplifier - Tape Deck

The Two Mono Tape Head algorithms add Analog Tape saturation. This non-linear saturation produces a smoothing effect on high frequency transients.

  • 15ips Tape
  • 30ips Tape
The Transformer Core Saturation algorithms adds non linear transformer core saturation as found on vintage consoles, tape machines and outboard gear.
  • Transformer American
  • Transformer British

Try the different URS Saturation algorithms on all your favorite tracks - Drums, Guitars, Bass, Keyboards and Vocals. Hear the added warmth!

About each model:

Class A Tube Mic Pre Amplifier - MotorCity
This algorithm digitally recreates American tube mic pre amplifier saturation that was popular in recording studios during the 1960s Motown era. Setting the drive control higher will add desired harmonics and tube soft clipping for a much more pronounced effect.

Class A Tube Mic Pre Amplifier - German
This algorithm digitally recreates German tube mic pre amplifier saturation that was popular in European recording studios during early 1960s Beatles era. This type of tube pre amplifier is coveted for it's unique distortion, presence and authority in the treble ranges.

Class A Discrete Mic Pre Amplifier - British
This algorithm digitally recreates classic British console all discrete mic pre amplifier saturation. This vintage amplifier saturation was also present in the console's summing buss amplifiers. The added harmonics create the edge that is desired in both Rock and R&B music.

Class A Discrete JFet Mic Pre Amplifier - Modern
This algorithm digitally recreates modern JFet mic pre amplifier saturation. This type of saturation comes the closest of any discrete device to tube saturation. Although similar to a tube it has its own unique harmonic structure and sound.

Class A Tube Mic Pre � 1951
Digitally recreates American Tube Mic Pre amplifier saturation. The original Mic Pre were made by the same company that became famous for their Program Equalizers and were popular from the early 1950�s through the 1960s. The original Tube Mic Pres are coveted for their warm sound.

Class A Tube Mic Pre � Tape Deck
Digitally recreates Tube Mic Pre saturation included in early American Mono Analog Tape Recorders similar to those used by Elvis. The original Mic Pre amplifiers were popular from the early 1950s through the 1960s and are still popular today. Today the original Tape Machine transports are trashed only to keep the Tube Mic Pre electronics.

Tape Head Saturation � 15ips and 30ips
Digitally recreates classic Tape Machine Tape Head saturation. This type of non linear saturation particularly affects higher frequency transients and is most noticeable on drums and percussive instruments.

Transformer American Core Saturation
The Transformer American algorithm digitally recreates Vintage American transformer saturation found in high end early 1960s recording consoles, tape machines and outboard gear. Try the Transformer American algorithm as a transient tamer. A great tool to fix poorly recorded clicky Bass and Snare Drums.

Transformer British Core Saturation
The Transformer British algorithm digitally recreates Vintage British transformer saturation found in high end early 1970s recording consoles. Try the Transformer British algorithm as a track warmer. The Transformer British algorithm can be a great tool to fix brittle digitally recorded audio.

Mix blend Control
Allows you to blend the right amount of Saturation with your source material. No need to use an additional parallel track or Aux send to get blend effects. At the 100 % Wet setting the Mix Blend Control is disabled.

Adjustable output control
The URS Saturation plug-in features an adjustable output control after the Mix Blend control to balance the final effect with your insert chain.

Plasma Style VU metering
Allows you to view both the input and output signal. The phenomena of added harmonics, soft clipping and saturation is that it sounds louder even when the meters do not indicate changes in level.

High Res 64 bit Floating point "Double Precision" processing
The URS Saturation plug-in Hi Resolution 64-bit floating point "Double Precision" processing for increased clarity and headroom. Why mention this clarity for a plug-in that reduces saturation?
Because, we designed the URS Saturation plug-in to reproduce Analog style saturation not Digital!

Native Support only
The URS Saturation plug-in currently supports all Native formats - RTAS, Audio Units and VST for both Mac OSX Tiger/Leopard
and Windows XP/Vista

TDM Support Planned
A TDM version is planned and will be released at a later time for an additional charge.
