Pulsar 1178 is one of the few plugins out there that you’ll want to try on every possible source material. With such a well calibrated output stage, totally non hyped, it allows every user to feel the sound of its compression straight away... And what a sound!

With the Pulsar Mu, you have the sound of the glue that you hear from the well-known variable-bias compressor, in a plug-in form with added controls and flexible side-chaining.

Got Pulsar Mu as a demo first. After a few days I started using it on almost every project. Pulsar really did an amazing job on this one, I am really a new fan now. The sound is just right, super calm feeling and the interface is nice and easy to use. Thank you Pulsar.

I’ve been working with variable-bias tube compressors for a long time. I use them in all of my mixes on vocals and mix bus compression. I never found any plugin that could replicate the sweet sound that my compressors have, but honestly all of them have been powered off since the first time I used Pulsar Mu.

Pulsar Echorec is the most amazing Binson modelled plugin I’ve heard! It has a sound that truly reminds me of that grainy midrange of the hardware units, with hugely improved features, like its Stereo Drift knob which is so unique sounding and great fun to use.

The Pulsar Mu is a beautifully responsive compressor, adding depth and width to material in such a solid, subtle way as to almost be invisible. It cuddles the sound. I love it.

The Pulsar 1178 is finally a software that meets my needs to find the right tone in ITB compression. Precision, dimension, the right amount of harmonic distortion and an incredible GUI for advanced control. I could not ask for more!" I'm really impressed with this plugin!

I absolutely love the Mu. The sound is incredible. Pulsar has a real winner here.

Pulsar Mu is way more than a vari-mu compressor/limiter to my ears. It’s instant character on everything it touches, just running audio through it. It’s sculpting audio information to their very core. It’s pure fun to use on literally every source material, with the most powerful side chain section you can think of today and one hell of a sound.

I've been dreaming of an Echorec that I could use in my production work. One that would free me from the charming but time-consuming idiosyncracies of a mechanical unit. This plug-in is everything that I'd hoped for. The delays seem to float. I'm completely addicted.

I used the original Binson Echorec on several recordings, and this virtual version really has all the charm of the original. Whether it is for very typical echoes with modulation, or simply to colour the sound a little bit with the drive, it quickly becomes an indispensable tool, much more spatial than the RE-201 or the Echoplex.

The Pulsar Echorec is wonderful. The colour is incredible and the possibilities are immense: vintage rock'n'roll slapback, infinite feedback, distortion... Everything is possible in both mixing and sound design situations. Thanks to the Pulsar team for bringing this machine back to life.
