The Pulsar Echorec is a software emulation of the iconic echo/delay unit of the same name produced by the Italian brand Binson in the 1960s.

The sound of this magnetic disk delay differs from the tape delays used at the time, and has largely contributed to the audio signature of many 70s bands: Pink Floyd, The Shadows, Jimmy Page etc.

The best software emulation of the Binson Echorec 2

Vintage Echorec devices are known for their saturation, self-oscillation, and oversound, all shaping the music produced in the 70s. They are also, however, known to be fragile and difficult to maintain.

The Pulsar Echorec plugin gives you a faithful emulation of this legendary echo unit; furthermore, many workflow improvements have been added to the original, such as the ability to change the motor speed (and so the delay time) in real time or to sync it to any tempo, including a tapped tempo.

Three different units, in different conditions, have also been precisely modeled, to have all sounds from the cleanest magnetic delay, to the most grunge.

These additions and the signature sound of the Binson Echorec 2 make this echo a must-have tool for any mixer who wants to add the subtle analog life, which is sorely lacking in digital delay plugins.

 

Main Features

Authentic Tube Sound

Authentic tube sound

The exact sound of the all-tube input section of the Binson Echorec has been precisely replicated. Special attention was paid to the modeling of pre-emphasis filters.

Magnetic field recreation

Magnetic field recreation

Any sound going through a magnetic device is modified in a particular way. Complex processes in the Echorec disk involving magnetic saturation and hysteresis have been precisely modeled.

Stereo Drift

Stereo Drift

As an improvement to the original hardware design, we added the possibility of slightly detuning the left and right channels. The result is a large stereo echo with precisely placed repetitions.

Creative Modulations

Creative Modulations

Sound engineers always have their tricks. One of the coolest with the Echorec is the ability to slow the disk down with a finger, resulting in creative pitch modulation or wow and flutter effects on the delayed signal.

Three States of Wear

Three States of Wear

Any Binson unit found nowadays has traveled 50 years through time. Some are in mint condition, and some are used. During our measurements, we found that each unit had a special color, and some are really nice independently from the unit condition. So we selected the three units we liked the most.

Off Mode

Off Mode

Some effects just sound incredibly good, even when they’re not supposed to affect the sound at all. The Binson Echorec is one of these. So we carefully designed an Off mode that reproduces the color and grit of the delayed signal, without any delay.
