PreSonus has announced the Analog Effects Collection. The bundle consists of five vintage-inspired effect plug-ins from Studio One, which have now been made available in VST3, AU and AAX formats for use in other DAWs.
PreSonus Analog Effects Collection
The PreSonus Analog Effects Collection consists of five retro-inspired plug-ins, which are also available individually. The effects were formerly only available in Studio One Professional and Artist. Now you can use them in any DAW that supports VST3, AU or AAX plug-ins.
Analog Delay emulates an analog BBD (bucket brigade) delay unit. PreSonus says that it offers a warm sound and is capable of a wide variety of modulated delay effects. It also includes an overdrive.
Analog Chorus is a chorus processor with up to three voices. You can modulate the LFO delay time and adjust the stereo width. According to PreSonus, it’s based on guitar pedals and studio processors of the 1970s.
Next is Red Light Distortion, which offers six distortion models, two EQ controls and a mix control. By adjusting Drive and Distortion independently, PreSonus says you can design distorted sounds with a unique signature.
The Analog Effects Collection also includes Rotor, which is of course an emulation of a Leslie cabinet. There are many adjustable parameters such as each speaker’s rotation speed. Rotor also includes a tube overdrive.
Tricomp is a 3-band compressor with automatic threshold and ratio settings. It has relative controls for the low and high bands, switchable attack times and a release control. There’s also a mix knob for parallel processing, and you can add saturation.
Price and compatibility
The PreSonus Analog Effects Collection is now available for USD 79.95. If you don’t need the whole bundle, you can purchase individual effects for USD 19.95 each. PreSonus Sphere members and Studio One Professional users will receive a complimentary license for the VST3, AU and AAX versions.
The VST3, AU and AAX versions of the plug-ins require macOS 10.13 or higher or Windows 10 or higher (64 bit only).
