Unique Recording Software has upgraded its channel-strip plug-in URS Strip Pro to version 2.0. Enhancements include updated input stages, input-stage bypass, a fast-attack compression algorithm and a new wet/dry mix slider.
URS says that Strip Pro 2.0 combines vintage analog sound with modern features. All 30 input stages have been upgraded to add a more weighted effect, with improved vintage odd and even harmonics. The input-stage bypass makes it easy to keep your settings and A/B the input stage effect. The compressor section gets a lightning-fast attack algorithm that recreates the fast attack range of vintage FET and opto compressors. And the compressor's wet/dry mix control lets you add just the right amount of source-material dynamics to the compression mix.
Strip Pro supports Windows 7, Vista and XP, as well as Mac OS X Snow Leopard, Leopard and Tiger. Although the TDM/RTAS/AU/VST version retails for $1,199.99, it''s on sale for $799.99 until the end of 2009. Likewise, the Native RTAS/AU/VST version retails for $599.99, but it''s on sale for $399.99 until the clock strikes midnight on New Years Eve. Version 2.0 is a free upgrade for all registered users.
