EchoBoy Pro Tools Plug-In Gains 96 kHz Support

SoundToys Inc. (formerly Wave Mechanics), a developer of high-end digital signal processing (DSP) tools announced the availability of a new upgrade for EchoBoy. Available free of charge to existing EchoBoy users, the new upgrade adds 96k support for both TDM and RTAS formats as well as HTDM to support older ProTools| 24 MIX systems. A free 14 day production-ready trial version, and upgrade for registered users is available for download.

EchoBoy at 96k requires a ProTools|HD Accel card for true TDM, or a compatible native system for RTAS or HTDM. HTDM is also available for older ProTools| 24 MIX systems at 44/48kHz. One GHz or faster CPUs are recommended.

Analog emulation lets EchoBoy TDM create the sound of a wide array of echo and delay devices, past and present. EchoBoy's new Advanced Analog Mode and selectable 'Echo Styles' allow users to change the entire sonic signature from pristine digital delay, to high quality tape echo, to lo-fi analog delay pedals, and classic echo boxes.

Featuring intricate rhythm capabilities thanks to SoundToys' new True Groove rhythm technology, EchoBoy TDM lets users change the rhythm of their delays to allow the echo to swing and jam along with the mix. EchoBoy TDM includes adjustable swing/shuffle and accent for a truly musical echo sound. Users can tweak the feel control from 'rushin' to 'draggin' so the echo hits right where it sounds best. MIDI tempo locking also lets users lock to the session tempo with the flip of a switch.

EchoBoy TDM is loaded with over 300 professionally crafted presets and a host of other features including single, dual, ping-pong and rhythm modes, dynamics control, 3-band EQ with decay shaping, stereo imaging control, advanced analog mode and true TDM support on Pro Tools HD and HD Accel systems (96kHz requires ProTools| HD Accel).
