Audio Damage AD036 Dubstation 2 v2.1.1 VST VST3 AU AAX [WIN MacOSX LINUX]
The original dub delay plugin and still the best! Dubstation 2 takes our most popular product and adds a whole raft of new features, including a dual mode for separate control over the left and right delay times, ping-pong, a new feedback saturation algorithm, and an LFO. Along with an all-new procedural and Retina-friendly user interface and (FINALLY!) ProTools compatibility, this represents a major leap forward for one of our signature products.
All those bells and whistles aside, the heart of Dubstation is our painstaking bucket-brigade delay model. Often imitated, but never duplicated, Dubstation has been the go-to plugin for that sound for over a decade, used in thousands of commercial productions, and with good reason. With the addition of the LFO and saturation controls, Dubstation has moved in to the realm of tape delay emulation as well, and is a sonic Swiss Army knife for delay.
Two tempo-synced or free-running delay lines with feedbackl
- Multiple Delay Modes
Dubstation 2 can be used as a single mono or stereo delay effect, in dual mode with separate controls for the left and right channels’ delay times and in ping-pong mode.
- Classic Delay Algorithm
Dubstation 2 features Audio Damage’s renowned model of bucket-brigade delay circuits, a faithful digital recreation of vintage hardware.
- Time Controls
The user can switch between two delay time ranges, encompassing 4 to 2000 milliseconds. Frequency-response characteristics vary with delay time – a fundamental aspect of the sonic personality of analog bucket-brigade delay circuits.
- Low-Frequency Oscillator
Delay time can be periodically altered with an LFO, producing changes in both the time between delayed signals and their apparent pitch.
Low-cut and high-cut filters with user-controlled cutoff frequencies in the delay path offer a wide range of timbres
Analogue-style saturation with an amount control allowing for distortion from the subtle to the extreme.
User-controllable feedback ranging from almost none to full feedback of the delayed signal back into the delay lines’ inputs.
- Loop Mode
Causes Dubstation to endlessly play the audio currently in its delay line without alteration. Filter and saturation effects are applied to the output signal in Loop Mode.
- Reverse Mode
The Reverse switch makes Dubstation reverse the current contents of its delay memory and the direction in which it records.
- Mix control
Blend of the processed and the dry input signal.
- Gain Staging Contols
Input and output gain controls ranging from -80dB to +3dB.
- Cross-Platform Preset Format
Dubstation 2 utilizes an XML-based preset manager. Work between multiple systems without troubles, make a preset on your desktop machine and paste it to the iOS version with Handoff, easily share your creations with your friends, or make a preset bundle to sell.
- Fully Resizable Hi-Dpi/Retina GUI
Dubstation 2’s vector-based GUI is resolution-agnostic, and displays the same on every system and resolution. Easily resize the UI (per instance) to match your visual needs, from postage stamp to poster-sized.
Changes in v2.1.1
> Windows 32-bit version removed (RIP). Dubstation is now 64-bit only on all platforms.
Fixes in v2.1.1
> Channel configuration improved to deal with a bug that mainly expressed itself in the VST3 version in some hosts, but may be present elsewhere. If you had any problems with Dubstation not sending audio out one channel, this will probably fix it.
