The Time Modulator
CONTROL TIME ITSELF! - with The Marshall Time Modulator (now in a convenient, cross-platform plug-in size!)
Once in a while something is created that is so good, so unbelievably useful, it becomes "timeless"...
The Marshall Time Modulator is one of those creations. Before there was much "digital" anything, and before records were considered something anachronistic and nostalgia evoking, back when "Dark Side of the Moon" was new and Hip-Hop kind of a distant dream, Stephen St. Croix had an idea: What would happen if you took the the longest analog delay line possible, gave it the greatest signal to noise ratio in a piece of outboard gear, and then made the modulation of it possible over such a wide range that it could effect sound in ways sublime AND outrageous. Something so utilitarian and necessary that it could fit in equally well on Stevie Wonder's "Songs in the Key of Life," or as the means of giving extra gravitas to the sound of a bad acid trip. Stephen called it: The Marshall Time Modulator. You'll call it "indispensable".
PRESS: In Feb 2010, the prestigious magazine Sound on Sound reviewed our current trio of plug-ins and had this to say about the Marshall Time Modulator: "Even in plug-in form, the Marshall Time Modulator is still the flanger par excellence... ". More at Sound on Sound (subscription required)
Music Radar just gave the Marshall Time Modulator plug-in 4.5 out of 5 stars! Go see!
Our Marshall Time Modulator plug-in just received a 9/10 from Computer Music UK - This sums up their thoughts nicely: "... superb spacious ethereal effects... MTMs vinatge emulation hits the spot, making it a great compliment to modern delay and modulation effects"
