Bomb Factory BF-3A
A prized component of the award-winning Classic Compressors line, the Bomb Factory BF-3A plug-in adds a smoothness and sonic texture that makes sounds jump right out of the mix. Famous for its unique sonic imprint on guitar, piano, vocals and drums, the Bomb Factory BF-3A sounds great on any voice or instrument and is an ideal go-to leveling amplifier for all your Pro Tools projects.
Each of Bomb Factory's Classic Compressors — Bomb Factory BF-2A, Bomb Factory BF-3A, Bomb Factory BF76, and Purple Audio MC77 — preserves every audio nuance and sonic subtlety of the originals. Far more than just a simple simulation of attack and release times, they respond authentically and accurately to all variations in program material. Cutting-edge technology captures every tube, transformer, and transistor of their hardware counterparts, while their software design affords additional luxuries.

Classic Compressors Bundle
Bomb Factory Classic Compressors look, sound, and work just like the real thing. Whether you're just learning to use compression or a seasoned pro polishing a final mix, you'll love these time-proven designs.
The Bomb Factory BF-2A is modeled after one of the most popular compressors in the industry — the renowned LA-2A. The Bomb Factory BF-2A tube compressor plug-in’s vintage sound delivers incredible warmth and classic compression with the convenience and flexibility that only a software plug-in can offer.
The Purple Audio MC77 is meticulously modeled and personally approved by Andrew Roberts of Purple Audio, Inc. and is the latest addition to the Bomb Factory Classic Compressor family. The MC77 plug-in is a spot-on digital replica of Roberts’ acclaimed MC77 Limiting Amplifier, which in turn is an update of his classic MC76 hardware unit. Representing a different take on the 1176-style FET limiter, Purple Audio MC77 gives you access to all the goodness of the original with the convenience and flexibility only a plug-in can offer.
Proprietary modeling technology captures every tube, transformer, and transistor of the originals! Plus, both include sidechain support and perfect stereo tracking — two features not available in the "vintage" domain.

For vocal processing that's really out there, give Cosmonaut Voice a whirl. Achieve telephone voice, CB radio, even interplanetary effects...all with a plug-in that looks as funky as it sounds. Cosmonaut Voice effects include distortion, noise, squelch, and even an authentic tone culled from recently declassified Russian space footage.
Fairchild 660 and 670 Bundle
Re-introducing the undisputed champions in price, weight and performance: the Fairchild 660 and Fairchild 670.
Designed in the early 1950s, the Fairchild 660 and 670 are variable-mu limiters. Variable-mu designs use an unusual form of vacuum tube that is capable of changing its gain dynamically. The result? In addition to featuring a tube output stage like the Bomb Factory BF-2A, the Fairchild actually achieves gain reduction through the use of tubes!
Of course, Bomb Factory's no-compromise replicas capture every detail of these legendary pieces of studio gear.
Best of all, our versions are affordable enough that real musicians can actually afford to own them!
Free Bomb Factory Plug-ins
With the free Bomb Factory plug-ins now available for Pro Tools systems, you have yet another palette of tools to make the most of your Pro Tools sessions. The Bomb Factory BF76 (formerly, Bomb Factory 1176) offers you the world-class compressor/limiter capabilities of the classic 1176 Peak Limiter, while the BF Essentials provide a set of time-saving, trouble-solving, mixing studio utilities. All employ intuitive, easy-to-use interfaces so there’s no wasting time with learning curves.
Free Bomb Factory plug-ins include:
Bomb Factory BF76: (TDM, RTAS, AudioSuite) Modeled after one of the most popular dynamics processors in the industry — the renowned 1176 solid state compressor. The Bomb Factory BF76 plug-in’s true-to-form representation of the original in terms of both sound and operation (including the "all four buttons depressed" setting) must be experienced to be believed.
BF Essentials Clip Remover: (AudioSuite) The BF Essential Clip Remover repairs clipped audio recordings. That red light no longer means a blown take! You'll be amazed how quickly this essential tool can repair clipped recordings. Best of all, it's much quicker and more accurate than using the pencil tool. Set your levels very carefully. But when your signal gets too excitable, try the BF Essential Clip Remover.
BF Essentials Correlation Meter: (HTDM, RTAS) Solve tracking and mix problems, and troubleshoot phase coherency with the BF Essential Correlation Meter. It works on stereo tracks or stereo submixes. Use it to stop phase problems before they start.
BF Essentials Meter Bridge: (HTDM, RTAS) The BF Essential Meter Bridge provides best-of-breed VU metering on any channel while using minimal DSP resources. Enjoy the ease of use afforded by a needle, a big meter, and a faithful emulation of the decades-old standard for meter ballistics. Select RMS or Peak metering, and calibrate instantly for useful viewing at any signal level, just like a pro tape machine.
BF Essentials Noise Meter: (HTDM, RTAS) The BF Essential Noise Meter is three meters in one:
1) Set to "A," it's an A-weighted noise meter
2) Set to "R-D," it's a Robinson-Dadson equal-loudness meter
3) Set to "None," it's a VU meter with 100 dB of visual range
Mono and stereo versions included.
BF Essentials Tuner: (HTDM, RTAS) Even though some quality plug-ins exist that give you access to a whole slew of guitar amps, cabinets, and effects, you still need to have a tuned instrument going into it. Why complicate things with another hardware device? Enter the BF Essential Tuner. In addition to tracking more accurately and tuning faster than any of those battery-eating handheld gizmos, it’s more convenient than rackmount tuners.
Funk Logic Mastererizer: (HTDM, RTAS, AudioSuite) Lo-fi sound effects plug-in developed by Bomb Factory and Funk Logic.
Compressors & Equalizer
In use by top producers, JOEMEEK gear is the secret weapon that gives your sound the character and excitement it deserves.
Legendary producer Joe Meek used to say, "If it sounds right, it is right." His masterful use of non-linear, sometimes severe compression defined his sound.
This bundle includes the following two JOEMEEK plug-ins:
The JOEMEEK SC2 Photo Optical Compressor is designed purely as an effects compressor. It changes the clarity, balance, and even rhythmic feel of music — giving your tracks an undeniable edge!
Joe Meek built custom recording circuits in tiny tobacco tins. One of them was a treble and bass equalizer with a sweepable mid control. The JOEMEEK VC5 Meequalizer re-creates the exact equalizer circuit used by Joe Meek, offering simple controls and incredibly warm, musical results. Try it on mono or stereo tracks.
Moogerfooger 12-Stage Phaser
Bob Moog goes digital! The Moogerfooger 12-Stage Phaser combines a switchable 6- or 12-stage phaser with a wide-ranging variable LFO. Start with subtle tremolo or radical modulation effects, then crank the distortion and resonant filters for unbelievable new sounds — all with the signature classic Moog sound.
Moogerfooger Analog Delay
Bob Moog goes digital! The Moogerfooger Analog Delay is simply the coolest (and warmest!) delay in the digital domain. Good luck finding Bob Moog's "real-world" version; due to component shortages, fewer than 1,000 will be made. Bomb Factory snagged serial #1 and, as always, meticulously modeled every detail of the classic analog design. Wait until you hear it!
Moogerfooger Lowpass Filter
Bob Moog's Moogerfoogers go digital! The Moogerfooger Lowpass Filter's envelope follower delivers classic '60s and '70s sounds on bass and electric guitar. Or dial up fat analog for any instrument using the 2-pole/4-pole variable resonance filter. Groovy!
Moogerfooger Ring Modulator
Bob Moog goes digital! The Moogerfooger Ring Modulator's wide-range carrier oscillator and dual waveform LFO mean motion on rhythm tracks and radical lo-fidelity textures.
Finally, here are digital equalizers that look, sound, and behave like real analog EQ. Pultec Equalizers provide smooth, sweet EQ and an extremely high-quality tube audio signal path.
And like most studio classics, they're incredibly easy to use. Grab a knob, give it a twist, and everything just sounds great. Every time.
Bomb Factory's award-winning digital modeling expertise delivers the sounds you know and love.
Use them anywhere you'd use the originals: on individual tracks, critical vocals, or for across a stereo mix for mastering applications.
The preferred choice of touring artists and recording professionals worldwide, the SansAmp PSA-1 provides the widest range of amplifier, harmonic generation, cabinet simulation, and equalization tone shaping options available.
You've heard SansAmp on thousands of recordings, on everything from drums and bass to vocals and harmonica.
Add warmth and punch to existing tracks, or record bass and guitar direct into Pro Tools the right way with the SansAmp XDI direct recording interface (available separately). Capture guitar free of muddy sound degradation or excess noise — then go digital and dial up any tone imaginable.
Slightly Rude Compressor
The Slightly Rude Compressor was Bomb Factory's first completely custom compressor design. Used conservatively, it sounds beautiful on vocals, drums, guitars, and piano. Pushed hard, it's unique and aggressive. The stereo version is specifically designed to solve the problems that often plague digital mixes.
If your final mixes need a lot more impact and a little less of that "digital sound," look no further.
Tel-Ray Variable Delay
In the early 1960s, technicians at a small company experimented with electronics and technology. When they came up with something great, they would tell Ray (the boss).
One invention involved a tuna can, a motor, and a few tablespoons of cancer-causing oil. The creation: an "Electronic Memory Unit" — a technology, they were sure, that would be of great interest to companies like IBM and NASA.
Though it never made it to the moon, the killer technology that gives Tel-Ray its unique sound was licensed by most every major guitar amp manufacturer.
Add an echo to any voice or instrument using the Tel-Ray Variable Delay. It provides lush delay, amazing echo, and warms up your tracks and mixes.
From Voce, you get classic effects that sound great on any instrument.
Voce Spin provides the most accurate simulation of the well-loved rotating speaker. Fifteen classic recording setups feature horn resonance, speaker crossover, varying microphone placement — even the "Memphis" sound with the lower drum's slow motor unplugged. Customize exactly the sound you want with more than a dozen fully automatable parameters!
Voce Chorus/Vibrato recreates the B-3 organ's mechanical scanner vibrato. You get three settings of chorus and three settings of vibrato on one cool knob! Fun and easy to use, this classic effect has been used for over 60 years. Talk about vintage!
