MOTU, Inc. and Bomb Factory Digital, Inc. announced that fourteen new Bomb Factory plug-ins for MOTU's Digital Performer and AudioDesk workstations will ship next month. Bomb Factory specializes in authentic reproductions of classic outboard gear, such as the Pultec EQP-1A Program Equalizer and the Fairchild Model 660 Compressor. All fourteen plug-ins run in MOTU's 32-bit floating point MAS plug-in environment and feature side-chain inputs (where applicable) and fully automatable knobs and switches.
"Bomb Factory brings vintage outboard processing to Digital Performer and MAS in a huge way," said Jim Cooper, Director of Marketing for MOTU. "You just can't imagine how good - and how authentic - these plug-ins sound until you try them. Bomb Factory is destined to become an essential part of every MOTU user's plug-in arsenal. And we're thrilled to see Bomb Factory introduce entirely new plug-ins - available for the first time on any platform - simultaneously for Digital Performer and MAS. That speaks volumes to us about their commitment to our users."
"Bomb Factory is proud to support the MAS plug-in environment," said Bomb Factory President Erik Gavriluk. "Heck, some of our best friends use Digital Performer: film scoring professionals, sound designers, even the guy who did the music for that TV show where the robots fight each other. Now all MAS users can enjoy using our award-winning software to enhance their work. We can't wait to hear what MOTU users do with our tools."
Proprietary modeling technology (patents pending) allows Bomb Factory to capture every tube, transformer and transistor of vintage equipment. In addition to sonic excellence, Bomb Factory plug-ins offer the look, feel, and legendary ease of use of classic studio gear by providing a photorealistic user interface, complete with scratches, dents and moving shadows.
Bomb Factory burst onto the plug-in scene with the SansAmp PSA-1 amp simulator, bombfactory Classic Compressors, Bob Moog's moogerfooger line of analog effects, and the Voce Spin rotating speaker simulator. All products received rave reviews, and won numerous industry awards.
Additional new offerings shipping next month for MAS include the JOEMEEK Compressor SC2, JOEMEEK Meequalizer VC5, Tel-Ray Variable Delay, Fairchild Model 660 Compressor, Pultec EQP-1A Program Equalizer, and others. Below is a summary of the complete BF line and pricing:
