Space Station Plug-in Launched
Legendary Effects Now Available for ProTools HD
Princeton, NJ (September 28, 2004) - Princeton Digital today announced the availability of a Pro Tools TDM Plug-in version of the legendary Ursa Major Space Station.
In 1981 a small company called Ursa Major in Belmont, MA (USA) introduced a very strange and wondrous signal processor called the SST-282. The Space Station was a multitap delay-based echo, ambience, and reverb device and, over the years, it earned many hundreds of loyal users who relied on the rack mount box to control and enhance 'virtual' acoustic space. Its versatility and musicality, made possible through a rich combination of basic DSP elements and an elegant UI, have made it a coveted piece of gear.
Princeton Digital has worked with Chris Moore, the SST-282's designer, to port the Space Station to ProTools HD creating a plug-in that is true to the original: from its retro user interface to its complex delay modulations. The result is that the unique effects of the original Space Station are now available to ProTools users.
"Jeff Sasmor and I were delighted to work with Chris Moore on this project. Chris was the founder of Ursa Major where he conceived and designed some of the industry's classic digital effects processors. I know that the Pro Tools version will make Space Station fans ecstatic and it's equally exciting to introduce this legend to a new generation of recording artists" said Tony Agnello, President of Princeton Digital.
"When I designed the Space Station in 1977, I crafted a unique reverb algorithm and the hardware to support it as a single, organic unit. It's gratifying to see it live on and evolve," said Chris Moore, President and Founder of Seven Woods Audio.
In 2003, Seven Woods Audio announced a new incarnation, the SST-206, a reissue of the Ursa Major Space Station: the same classic reverbs and effects in a case smaller than a typical paperback book.
The SST-282 supports sample rates of 44.1, 48, and 96 KHz. System requirements include: Pro Tools 6.0 or later (No Mix or LE support), MAC OS X 10.2.4 or later (No Windows support), HD or Accel hardware, iLok for demo & full authorizations thru iLok.com
The Space Station is priced at $499 and is available immediately at www.princetondigital.com
