Line 6 have today announced they will soon be releasing an AAX64 bit version of the much missed Echo Farm™ plug in. Line 6 say:
The original Echo Farm™ plug-in was a staple, found in studios throughout the world, and was heard on countless hit records. We’re bringing back the same beloved collection of vintage echo effects with Echo Farm 3.0—now available as a 64-bit AAX Native plug-in for Pro Tools 11 and higher. Choose from 12 models based on* vintage hardware units, including Maestro® Echoplexes, Roland® RE-101 Space Echo®, Boss® DM-2, Electro-Harmonix® Memory Man, T.C. Electronic® 2290 and Line 6 originals. Experience the detailed sonic properties of tubes, tape and vintage electronics—without spending a fortune on bulky outboard gear. We even left the UI completely unchanged, so you can experience the same familiar workflow that you know and love.
Each model in Echo Farm 3.0 is fully programmable and automatable, so you can take total control over the sound and responsiveness of each model. Control tape wow n’ flutter, filter-swept modulation, bit resolution and more. Quickly set the delay time via knob, tap tempo, BPM and note value, or lock to the global tempo of your Pro Tools session and follow any tempo variations. Plus, the defeatable Time Ramp feature delivers smooth tape-style changes in delay time—and comes complete with pitch smear for even more vintage authenticity.
