Favorite PSP plug-ins:

PSP L’otary2: “I used PSP L’otary2 plug-in on all of my B3 organ sounds on my new album. I tried all of the other rotary speaker plug-ins and it is my favorite, by far. It sounds like a real Leslie speaker. I was also able to get some subtle, beautiful sounds on other tracks on my new album, as well, including: vocals and electric piano.”

PSP E27: “The PSP E27 multistage equalizer is truly a phenomenal plug-in EQ. I have tried pretty much all of the plug-in EQs out there, as well as, used and owned many of the legendary, hardware equalizers, including a pair of Avedis E27 500-series eq’s that this plug-in emulates. It sounds very close to the original and I used it extensively mixing my latest record. My favorite applications are vocals, guitars and drum bus. It sounds more like hardware than any other plug-in that I have used. With the recall and added features, it is an important tool in my mixes. I love the PSP E27 plug-in.”

PSP FETpressor: “I also used the PSP FETpressor on my new record and it has become another favorite.  It is fast like a typical fet compressor and allows me to control transients while adding analog sounding flavor. The parallel compression control built in also makes it very useful and versatile.  I have found that it really gels backing vocals together well and can make electric guitars more present in the mix.  My other favorite application of the PSP FETpressor is mixing bass guitar, where it shines.  The guys at PSP are on the cutting edge and to me are leading the way on plugins that sound like hardware, but have the functionality of software.”
