Fuse Audio Labs Bucket-500
The Bucket-500 is a musical” delay plugin that emulates the typical juicy flavors of an analog bucket brigade (BBD). The developers modeled the BL-3208 delay chip, the SA-571 based compandor system as well as the anti-aliasing and reconstruction filters. If you like direct control without deep sub-menus, this is the place for you.
Bucket-700 is a very simple plugin with a very intuitive user interface. Almost like an analog pedal with classic settings including left/right delay time (10-1k), feedback, and wet mix. Fuse Audio Labs also added custom features enhancing its flexibility and fun factor, including a tilt filter in the feedback path, a stereo cross-feed option, and an optional delay clock LFO.
This enables you not only to create bread and butter delay effects but also more sophisticated, complex textures. But with that the same warm, grungy, organic feeling we know from BBD-style delays.
Fuse Audio Lab VPRE-2C
The VPRE-2C is a preamp plugin that emulates an all-tube and transformer-based preamp rarity from the 1950s. It delivers a smooth and dense tone which is so typical for the great American recordings of this era, and yet its straightforward design results in a unique and worthwhile sonic character.
The plugin version gives you control over the gain, tone (lo, flat, hi), mix, and trim. It also has an additional signal boost switch and a dedicated power on/off switch. It’s perfect to enrich your recordings with an authentic tube vibe in the most intuitive way. Great on drums, synths, and more.
