“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 fell the sound of its compression straight away… And what a sound!”

Dan Austin

Producer | Mastering & Mixing Engineer

Massive Attack | YouMeAtSix | The Pixies

“Pulsar 1178 sounds amazing. It’s rare to use a plugin compressor that feels so close to the hardware it models. This plugin does everything my hardware 1178 did. Fat, warm, smooth and useable on any source. Pulsar 1178 has been a part of all of my mixes since I first tried it.”

Pulsar smasher is a beast! Loud and rude compression. When you need aggression on drums it’s so cool! I love it on toms mono rooms and creative mics. Very great compression!”

John Nathaniel

Producer | Mixing Engineer | Songwriter

Gwen Stefani | OneRepublic | Switchfoot

“Pulsar Smasher is a rockstar when you need to give energy to tracks and have that classic 1176 all buttons in compression style! Adding this on the drum buss and having a bit of the mix knob in can add so much energy!”

Recording & Mastering Engineer

Faith No More | Meatloaf | Yes

“With 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.”

Carmen Rizzo

Electronic Musician | Record Producer | Engineer

Coldplay | Seal | Alanis Morissette

“Pulsar Echorec truly divides itself from the rest of tape delays out they’re simply with their unique simulation of the magnetic motor delays and use of the warm saturation. It seems to work on almost anything you run through it especially pared with their Pulsar 1178 FET compressor. And the GUI is fire!”

Ross Hogarth

Recording & Mastering Engineer

Faith No More | Meatloaf | Yes

“I have always loved the sound of an 1178 smashing the parallel drum bus or spanking the drum room in a mix. The new Pulsar 1178 plugin is killing me. It is an immediate winner along with its extra features of side chain eq and saturation. I was won over quickly and am already now a big fan.”

Jesse Ray Ernster

Grammy Award-Winning Mixer

Burnaboy | Umi | Andy Grammer

«I have been an immense fan of the 1178 for many years; it’s an incredible special box that possesses a beautiful sound that plugins were never able to recreate.. until now! I was equally curious as I was skeptical to try the Pulsar 1178, and I am so happy to announce that I was blown away by the sound. Plus, the flexibility far outweighs its analog counterpart. Everyone should have this!»

“Having used some of the best 1178 units in countless sessions for over 25 years, I never thought I’d hear a plugin that could faithfully emulate its sonic fingerprint. Pulsar has not only captured the 1178’s DNA. It made it even more useful with features who allow me to control every single relevant parameter I need. From FET to FAT in a couple of tweaks!”

“Pulsar Audio 1178 is a superb recreation of the classic! Within a few seconds of using it, I was sold on the sound of it! I love the tape circuit option too, it adds such a great fatness to drums. Highly recommend it if you’re looking for some analog flavour across your tracks.”

Marc Daniel Nelson

Fletwood Mac | Jason Marz | Solo | Blade Runner

“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.”

Ray Borneo

Producer | Musician

PETROL CHIPS LABEL

“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.”

Neal Merrick Blackwood
