A wild freebie appears! Pulsar are generously offering their brand-new 1176 compressor emulation, Smasher, for free for a limited time.
Pulsar Smasher is an unprecedented custom modification of the 1176 compressor circuit, which we stumbled upon while fine-tuning other algorithms.
The original 1176 compressor has 4 selectable ratios. But it just so happens that all 4 buttons can be pressed at the same time, this is called “all buttons mode” or “British Mode”. Although probably an unanticipated feature, this mode has become very popular because of its distorted, explosive and highly compressed sound. Think of it as something halfway between a compressor and a saturation.
If you don’t already own an 1176 plugin, or even if you do… there’s not really any excuse not to grab this one whilst it’s free!
Smasher is available for free from Pulsar until March 11th.
