Pulsar Echorec: Enlarge your Delay

Hi guys, you don't know us yet, but we've been making plugins for 15 years, having worked for the synth geeks from André the Giant's hometown and for your favorite bacon lover !
Our name is Pulsar, our mission is to put into bankruptcy every other audio plugin company and to rule the world with the help of our reptilian backers !

However we're a little late with our thought-controlled mastering plug-in, so in the meantime, let us introduce our first real product, Pulsar Echorec, a reproduction of the Binson Echorec 2 magnetic-disk delay.


The Binson Echorec 2 is a famous magnetic disk delay from the 1960s, used by Syd Barret, David Gilmour, Jimmy Page....

We have devoted a lot of effort to achieve a faithful emulation of tube circuits. In addition, we have reproduced the sound of the magnetic disk very accurately. Is is extremely warm and at the same time distinct from the sound of magnetic tape.

We have also added several new features:
  • The Stereo Drift parameter adds spatial width
  • The “Off” mode gives you the sound of the tubes and magnetic disk without delay, in order to use the plugin as a saturation tool.
  • On the hardware, you could slow down the disk temporarily by pressing your finger on it; we have also added this feature on the plugin to allow creating nice modulation effects.

Congrats for the release !

I'll just add a link to the product page here :

Pulsar Echorec - Magnetic Disk Delay Plugin

Tube and magnetic tape modeling... Interesting.

Maybe you are the right guys for making a faithful AMPEX 350/351 tape machine emulation and start to rule, hum sorry, sail over the waves.

This delay is really neat! I really dig the fat snare preset. The vibe of this thing is really cool! Until when is the intro price?

Curious how it compares to the audiority version

I'd say as a true Binson devotee you need both as a) as far as i know these are still the only two, and b) they complement each other... seem to be viewed from different angles - Audiority version to my ears like a big chubby huggable all-over-the-place mama and this new Pulsar one more like Angela Basset - a beautiful kind of tight, every muscle well defined, smells like expensive old leather. Really ambitious on the tone this one, congratulations Pulsar.

Empty Room Systems EchORek2 by Harrie Munnik is yet another offering.

I believe it was the first attempt at emulating Binson.

anybody have difficulty with the trial on Protools, mac.
When loading PT, I get a message to authorize trial on my iLok and then get a message that I've tried to authorize the trial too many times.
Strange.

Yes, it sounds really neat.

And

Yes, the price of entry is quite steep for a noob company.

No matter how slick the website. No matter how appealing the UI. No matter which pillars of the dsp business for whom they have previously coded.

So if a brand new car company releases a supercar, they should sell it the price of an "average Joe" car ?

Sorry I don't understand the logic.

The ERS offering never even made it to macOS, despite suggestions from ERS years ago that it would.

As much as I really admire Harrie's work, I think he's lost interest in ERS.

This looks interesting.

Sorry for this and thanks for the report. It was a Safari-only issue, it's fixed now.

So sad that the industry has devolved, become plagued by entitlement, and devalued like this. We're at the point where legitimate, professional tools should only cost as much as a slice of toast with some avocado on it?

Our tools are better than ever and and worth much more than most of them sell for. We're getting to the point where real industry heavyweights are having to branch into tutoring and endorsements to secure their futures.

Stop devaluing our work, start paying what things are worth, and deal with it if you can't afford it. Even stock tools these days leave no excuses.

Looking very forward to trying this very affordable tool.

Hi Niccolo-
This version really sounds fantastic (I've compared 3 similar contenders I'm currently aware off).

My only question atm: Is it possible to have the Disk Brake show up (rather than just using the Disk Control Automation Lane) when the Disk is clicked on show up in Logic X Automation? I understand that might be impossible as the Click & Drag is over the Disk is a very large area of the GUI...just curious

whether it made it to mac makes no difference to me, but Harrie told me recently he's working on Echorek upgrade.

Audiority Echoes T7E sounds better and costs cheaper. this one has more "fancy GUI", though. for the "aesthetes". and ilok hemorrhoid pleasures. also for the "aesthetes".

I wish someone except for SKnote would tack Yamaha RA-200 emulation. we've had our share of Echorec delays, time to move on.

Love the Overloud Echoson. Would be hard to beat that one, but maybe I will get the demo.

Currently, only the disk rotation animation is used as a visual feedback for the automation of disk braking, but indeed, a clearer visual feedback is planned for the next versions!

I have Audiority Echoes T7E, Overloud Echoson & This, Pulsar Echorec. All three sounds are different.
It seems that AE and PE good complement each other. And I like 'Off mode' on PE

Resisting buying this but even before it came out I'd wished for an off mode on Echoes T7E

That’s ridiculous. So, every new company needs to charge $10 until they’re not new?

Please stop
