Jozefoslaw, Poland (June 9, 2005)–PSP EffectsPack, which consists of three plug-in effects–Lexicon PSP 42, PSP 84, and PSP Nitro–has been ported to the HTDM format for Mac OSX. The EffectsPack will work on OSX formats HTDM, RTAS, AudioUnit or VST, on OS9 formats RTAS and VST (without PSP Nitro), and RTAS, Direct X and VST on PC.
Now users can work with EffectsPack plug-ins as they would any standard TDM plug-ins (inside Pro Tools|HD Accel, Pro Tools|HD and Pro Tools|24 MIX), offering major benefits such as using Pro Tools automation, in addition to MIDI, to automate parameters, or using control surfaces for hands-on control of plug-in parameters. Now, the effects can be inserted in any type of channel strip: in a track, aux, or master which was impossible with RTAS version.
Lexicon PSP 42 is high-quality digital stereo delay and phrase sampler plug-in based on the legendary Lexicon PCM 42 processor known for its distinctive sound and unique delays. Lexicon PSP 42 has been carefully designed to accurately reproduce the flexibility and warmth of this hardware classic. This has been accomplished by PSP incorporating its tape saturation algorithm and a delay line operating with variable sample rates which simulates physical properties of vintage tape machine delays.
PSP 84 uses the same core engine as Lexicon PSP42, but adds more advanced features which make it an excellent tool for sound design. It has independent channel settings with cross-channel feedback, analog-sounding resonant filters with flexible routing and a vintage reverberator capable of emulating classic spring and plate reverbs.
PSP Nitro is a multi-mode filter plug-in. It offers many filter types derived from analog prototypes in addition to other useful processing blocks such as phasers, bit-crushers/downsamplers, waveshapers and interpolated delay blocks. These can be interconnected using Nitro’s virtually unlimited routing matrix. The advanced control signal generators are capable of modulating nearly all of the processing parameters, making this plug-in an important tool for sound design and experimentation.
