112dB announces that Redline Preamp, a vintage preamp emulation, is now available in native RTAS/AS/VST/AU format for Windows and Mac OS X at the introductory price of €88/$99.
Redline Preamp livens up any digital or “too clean” signal. At its heart lies a fexible algorithm that is capable of emulating most kinds of harmonic distortion typical for analogue, tape, and tube equipment. While it has not been modeled after any particular piece of gear it can do a wide range of convincing analogue emulations. A showcase selection of carefully constructed presets ranging from the warm American Vintage to the full-blown Beyond Repair is included.
Detailed control over even and odd harmonics, frequency-dependent saturation, and soft clipping allows you to turn Redline Preamp into a vintage console channel, a 15ips multitrack recorder, a musical tube preamp, and everything in between. Use it for subtle coloration or high-class grunge, for vintage and tape emulation and warming and fattening of digital mixes.
– Three adjustable frequency bands with proprietary tube modelling.
– Vintage harmonic distortion with concise editing controls.
– Mid/Side processing modes.
– Solo listening for each frequency band.
– Low CPU load.
– Zero latency.
– Support for sample rates up to 384kHz.
– Full parameter automation.
Redline Preamp is available immediately in RTAS/AS/VST/AU format for Windows XP/Vista/Windows 7 and Mac OS X 10.4 (Tiger), 10.5 (Leopard), and 10.6 (Snow Leopard). The introductory price of €88 (Europe) / $99 (worldwide) is valid through March 15, after which the regular price becomes €129/$149. An unrestricted 60-day evaluation version is available.
