This new Class A triode preamplifier plug-in emulates the rich saturation of the legendary Binson Echorec 2o.
PSP Audioware, makers of world-renowned software plug-ins for digital audio, have announced the availability of PSP BinAmp, providing the rich tone of the Binson Echorec 2’s preamplifier for any DAW tracking or mixing session.
First sold in 1960, the Binson Echorec 2 was a magnetic drum delay machine used by many of the most discerning players and studios throughout the 1960s and 1970s, most famously by Pink Floyd. Its unequaled tone was due in large part to its warm, rich Class A triode tube preamplifier.

PSP BinAmp captures that rich saturation for use on any audio source, in an easily controllable format with simple controls for Character and Drive. The plug-in is enhanced by controls for high pass filtering, high-frequency rolloff, and blend of saturated and unsaturated signals. Polarity switching is available at both input and output, and the 20 dB pad controls hot signals while adding clean makeup gain at the output, so activating the pad doesn’t change overall signal
A Magic Eye display similar to the one on the original Echorec 2 hardware provides intuitive and responsive metering of saturation or output level. A unique Variation control introduces subtle behaviour differences between multiple instances of the plug-in on the same or other tracks in your DAW session.
Even with all this power, the plug-in adds only 13 samples of latency, regardless of sample rate – up to 384 kHz, with quad sampling available at lower rates for impeccable sound. Simple to use and wonderful to hear, PSP BinAmp gives your tracks a little (or a lot) of that rich Binson tone.
PSP BinAmp is available for Windows 7 or better and macOS 10.12 Sierra or better, in VST, VST3, and AAX formats, as well as AudioUnit for macOS. It runs natively on 64-bit Intel and Apple Silicon computers, and is available immediately from the PSP Audioware website for the intro price $49 until the August 14th. Starting from August 15th PSP BinAmp regular price $99
