McDSP EC-300 Echo Collection Is FREE For A Limited Time
McDSP will offer the EC-300 Echo Collection ($79 value) plugin as a free download for a limited time, starting March 2nd, 2022. An iLok user account is required for activation purposes.
EC-300 Echo Collection emulates three delay types: Digital, Analog, and Magnetic. The plugin offers single, dual, and ping-pong delays, with additional features like ducking and saturation.
Each delay type comes with specific control parameters that let you customize the sound. The Magnetic mode offers Wow and Flutter controls that simulate the pitch imperfections of analog tape. Likewise, the Digital mode comes with Bit Depth and Modulation controls.
The different delay modes are represented with differently styled GUIs. All three designs look very nice, with clean layouts and easy-to-understand controls.
All three delay modes share the following control parameters: Feedback, Mix, Delay I, Delay II, Input, Output, HP Filter, and LP Filter. The delay can sync with the plugin host or in free mode. A tap tempo feature is also included.
“The EC-300 Echo Collection brings the sound of dozens of echo and chorus effects into a single plugin. The three delay types – Magnetic, Digital, and Analog – come with a generous collection of user controls, plenty of character modes, highly stylized visual feedback, and McDSP’s nearly two decades of gear modeling experience.”
The collection comes with hundreds of presets that cover various delay effects, chorus, flagging, and other modulation types.
EC-300 Echo Collection is available in VST3, AU, and AAX plugin formats for compatible digital audio workstations on Windows and macOS. Please note that you’ll need to activate the software using the iLok License Manager.
The product page offers several tutorial videos that showcase the EC-300 Echo Collection plugins in action. You can learn to create some go-to effects like the Haas Effect or complex delay grooves.
The free version of EC-300 Echo Collection will be fully operational without any usage or functionality restrictions.
