Introducing the Pulsar Echorec
The Pulsar Echorec is a software emulation of the iconic echo/delay unit produced by the Italian brand Binson in the 1960s. Known for its saturation, self-oscillation, and over-sound, the Echorec shaped the music of the 70s and contributed to the audio signature of many bands, including Pink Floyd, The Shadows, and Jimmy Page.
- Authentic Tube Sound – The exact sound of the all-tube input section of the Binson Echorec has been precisely replicated.
- Creative Modulations – Three different units, in different conditions, have been modeled to give a range of sounds from clean magnetic delay to gritty distortion.
- Magnetic Field Recreation – Complex processes in the Echorec disk involving magnetic saturation and hysteresis have been precisely modelled.
- Off Mode – An Off mode reproduces the color and grit of the delayed signal without any delay.
- Three States of Wear – Models for units in mint condition as well as those that have been well-used.
- Stereo Drift – An improvement to the original design, the ability to slightly detune the left and right channels for a larger stereo echo with precisely placed repetitions.
