Favorite PSP plug-ins:
PSP E27: “Modelled after the new-classic Avedis Audio eq. Avedis is the most knowledgeable NEVE/API specialist I’ve known for the past 20 years. He gathered all this knowhow into his line of analog gear and PSP brought this to a plugin. I simply love it.”
PSP Vintage Warmer2: “The easiest to use mastering multi-band limiter there is. And the warmest one too. Really, no fussing on parameters and crossover points. Its knee knob is a very welcome addition to the design and makes the unit even more powerful. This processor sounds good and musical out of the box.”
PSP StompFilter: “VERY musical and VERY analog (PSP style!) filter. The envelope settings give this processor a lot of movement on my mixes.”
PSP PianoVerb: “Fat and resonant reverb, different than anything else I am used to. Makes me remember when I placed a boombox inside a grand piano when I was a teen.”
PSP TripleMeter: “Finally a REAL analog meter that works old school. Knowing my RMS level throughout my work is a must for mixing and mastering purposes. Absolutely impossible to live without it! I come from the analog days, and watching a real VU is a joy.”
