Lunar Lander- BBD Delay, Plate Reverb plug-in
Breathtaking bucket-brigade Device (BBD) analog delay, plate reverbs (3 sizes) and Class A and Class A/B saturation emulation plugin. Easy to use 3-in-1 combo guitar-like pedal.
We all know the delicate tweaks needed to get a sound to “sit” in the mix. The name of this plugin, Lunar Lander, came about from the easiness of getting this task done.
Primarily designed for guitarists or to tame your aggressive analog synthesizers to sit in the mix, but you will find it working well with just about any other sound source. Put it on your plastic sounding soft synth, and crank the saturation up, and transform your Chihuahua synth to a Dobermann Synth 🙂
Try Tap Tempo your bpm and crank up the regenerate knob on the BBD Delay Module and get the track grooving. You can switch the signal path to go first through either the BBD Delay or Plate Reverb.
Try Lunar Lander on Bass Guitar and get that larger than life sound. Do you want that 80s soaking reverb sound? Switch to Plate 3 and you are there in a second.

Bucket-brigade Device (BBD) analog delay, plate reverb and saturation plugin.
With every full version purchase, a gift of custom handmade real calf hide wallet (lighter, softer and finer grain than cowhide) made here in Türkiye by a local artisan shop.
One of the nicest sounding space boxes on the market. Did a great job in cleaning my delay and reverb plugins folder. Can be used for subtly blending or can go full BOC mode with very dense ambience. Have built-in saturator and ducker. Reverb and delay positions in chain can be swapped. Plate reverb 3 sounds so freaking smooth. All I can say is bravo!
Of course, PM plugins seems expensive these days, but some of them already saved me a lot on buying new toys.
Lunar Lander is a toolbox of ambience and vibe. It contains probably the most authentic analog BBD (bucket brigade device) delay, three types of plate reverb, and a Class A or A/B output stage.
The analog delay has all the warm, warble-y (if you want it), and dirty repeats as well as the features to control it. Modulation controls help you dial in movement, Sync of course does what it says, and the BBD control takes you from an ultra clean repeat to a very vintage greasy saturation. It is hard to tell this from my actual high dollar analog units. Being that Pulsar Modular regularly update their plugins and add features, I’m personally hoping for Ping Pong delay to be added.
The plate reverb is lush and there are three variations. It has a bandpass EQ feature which will narrow the response. If I had a complaint, it would be that it would benefit from separate high and low controls. The character of the reverb is superb and I use it all the time on guitar and drums. The stereo field is great and it adds a lot of depth and vibe.
The output section adds subtle saturation from either Class A or A/B options. I use it to add warmth and color as though I was running my signal into a tube stage or amp. Overall, I’d recommend this as a first venture into Pulsar Modular plugins. P42 Climax being my favorite.
I took the opportunity to try the Lunar Lander which I had been eyeing for a long time because of the quality of the plug-ins from Pulsar Modular and the possibility of having a 40 day trial period with no limit, is a good way to get an idea.
The interface (which can be resized) is really nice and I really liked the pedal side of it, being a guitarist I felt really comfortable with it and I used it mainly on acoustic guitars and instruments. Not surprisingly the plug in is quite easy to handle you will find :
– A BBD (analog voiced) delay
– A plate reverb modelled on a Lexicon model offering three plate sizes
– A tube saturation
Concerning this last one, the Class A allows to have a low distortion while the Class A/B goes much more inside offering a more saturated signal, it works very well.
I’m not going to be original but once the plug in is engaged we get a very precise sound, a vintage tone.. organic, going from a soft sound to a thicker one thanks to the saturation and there the “magic happens”, there is a real harmonic richness that we find on hardware with character and a warm sound on the Delay as well as on the Reverb (on the latter don’t neglect the Hard Over button which allows to deepen the settings and to obtain a perfect reverb).
There is also a button that allows you to route the delay into the reverb or the reverb into the delay, which opens up the plug in to even more creative effects.
I really enjoyed this plug in, the all in one sounding plug in, I must also mention the low CPU overhead 🙂 (thank U).
The only small drawback is that there is only one type of reverb (I like spring reverbs haha 🙂
To tell you the truth, I waited for a special offer to buy it but it’s really worth it.
Try it and see for yourself.
Fantastic delay, reverb. Brings each element perfectly into the mix with little effort.
I also use it as a saturator, a marvel.
The sound is rich, authentic, it has become an indispensable tool and I can no longer imagine mixing without it.
Great sound and quick to manoeuvre. Though at times I’l lead myself down a rabbit hole as I explore the many movement and tone options which can be generated……… discipline required, or maybe not?
