Audio Damage AD036 Dubstation 2 v2.1.2 WIN MAC LINUX
Audio Damage’s painstakingly modeled bucket-brigade delay has been the go-to plugin for that sound for over a decade, used in thousands of commercial productions, and with good reason. Dubstation’s intuitive topology brings the mojo of yesteryears hardware delays to your DAW.
Dubstation 2 takes our most popular product and adds a whole raft of new features. With the addition of LFO and saturation controls, Dubstation 2 now fully emulates a vintage bucket-brigade delay, and the new dual mode for separate control over the left and right delay times and ping-pong make it a Swiss Army knife for delay effects.
What’s better than one delay line? Two! And for that very reason, Dubstation 2 introduces dual mode, exposing separate delay time controls for its left and right channels as well as ping-pong mode for tried-and-true cross-feedback effects making your delays alternate between channels.
Dubstation 2 features analoge-style saturation as well as low- and high-cut filters inviting you to shape its sound from fuzzy-warm to spiky-bright. True to its bucket-brigade roots, the plugin’s spectral character changes with increasing delay times. Whether you’re looking to add some old-school warmth to your downtempo production or wreak feedback havoc at your next live gig – we got you covered!
Get things moving with Dubstation’s delay-time modulation. Use the integrated Low-Frequently Oscillator to Introduce subtle chorusing, doubling effects or chirpy pitch sweeps – made possible by Dubstation’s emulation of vintage delay hardware.
As if Dubstation didn’t give you enough ways to repeat audio, engaging its ‘loop’ switch turns the plugin turns into a squeaky clean digital looper that won’t degrade your signal. Missing some of that dirt? Tweak the filter and saturation controls to find that sweet spot for your next one-person jam session – or leave your audience with a little something for their way out of the venue.
DUBSTATION 2 FEATURES
Two tempo-synced or free-running delay lines with feedbackl
- Multiple Delay Modes
Dubstation 2 can be used as a single mono or stereo delay effect, in dual mode with separate controls for the left and right channels’ delay times and in ping-pong mode.
- Classic Delay Algorithm
Dubstation 2 features Audio Damage’s renowned model of bucket-brigade delay circuits, a faithful digital recreation of vintage hardware.
- Time Controls
The user can switch between two delay time ranges, encompassing 4 to 2000 milliseconds. Frequency-response characteristics vary with delay time – a fundamental aspect of the sonic personality of analog bucket-brigade delay circuits.
- Low-Frequency Oscillator
Delay time can be periodically altered with an LFO, producing changes in both the time between delayed signals and their apparent pitch.
Low-cut and high-cut filters with user-controlled cutoff frequencies in the delay path offer a wide range of timbres
Analogue-style saturation with an amount control allowing for distortion from the subtle to the extreme.
User-controllable feedback ranging from almost none to full feedback of the delayed signal back into the delay lines’ inputs.
- Loop Mode
Causes Dubstation to endlessly play the audio currently in its delay line without alteration. Filter and saturation effects are applied to the output signal in Loop Mode.
- Reverse Mode
The Reverse switch makes Dubstation reverse the current contents of its delay memory and the direction in which it records.
- Mix control
Blend of the processed and the dry input signal.
- Gain Staging Contols
Input and output gain controls ranging from -80dB to +3dB.
- Cross-Platform Preset Format
Dubstation 2 utilizes an XML-based preset manager. Work between multiple systems without troubles, make a preset on your desktop machine and paste it to the iOS version with Handoff, easily share your creations with your friends, or make a preset bundle to sell.
- Fully Resizable Hi-Dpi/Retina GUI
Dubstation 2’s vector-based GUI is resolution-agnostic, and displays the same on every system and resolution. Easily resize the UI (per instance) to match your visual needs, from postage stamp to poster-sized.
