Valhalla - Freq Echo

ValhallaDSP have been carving out a reputation for providing excellent plug-ins at extremely affordable prices for nearly ten years now. The fantastic 'Freq Echo' is even more affordable than the rest of their plug-ins; you can download it for free from their website without even having to register.

Valhalla describe the Freq Echo using the following equation; 'Bode-style frequency shifter + analogue echo emulation = skull melting chaos'. 'Bode' refers to a frequency shifter that was once available as part of the Moog Modular system. In combination with the Analogue echo simulation it can create some pretty wild effects; 'perfect for dub, Dr. Who and all of your psychedelic needs'. This is a plug-in that can push sounds in some very interesting directions indeed. 

Aside from the obvious controls, Freq Echo has a tempo sync feature and high and low cut controls for the feedback path, allowing for finer control over the echo decay. There is no manual, but usefully, you can access 'Tool Tips' by hovering the mouse over each control on the user interface.

The plug-in is available for pretty much every platform; AAX, RTAS, VST and AU are all provided. Both Mac and PC are supported in 32 and 64-bit versions.

You can download Freq Echo from the Valhalla webiste. Be sure to check out their other plug-ins too; the reverbs in particular are fast becoming industry standards in certain genres and are available for only $50 each.
