SoundToys Inc. (formerly Wave Mechanics) announced EchoBoy TDM, an echo machine and the latest toy in the SoundsToys line of plug-ins for Pro Tools systems. Available in December 2004 for $495.00, EchoBoy TDM is a fully-featured echo/delay for Pro Tools systems.
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.
The new plug-in offers a wide range of sounds and echo styles ranging from pristine digital delays, to smooth prime number delays, to warm chorused echoes, tape emulation and lo-fi effects. Extensive tweak menus offer an unlimited scope for the custom creation of totally unique timbres and effects.
EchoBoy TDM is loaded with a host of other features including single, dual, ping-pong and rhythm modes, dynamics control, low and high EQ with decay shaping, bit depth (Lo-Fi) control, stereo imaging control, advanced analog mode and true TDM (not HTDM) support, with up to 5 seconds of delay on Pro Tools HDAccel systems.
Pricing and Availability
EchoBoy TDM will be available from SoundToys and its network of distributors in December for $495.00 USMRP. EchoBoy TDM works in Digidesign's TDM, RTAS and AudioSuite plug-in formats and supports Pro-Tools HD, LE and HD Accel.
