Linux compatible versions of the OverTone plug-ins have recently seen some significant development effort, both to improve host application compatibility, and provide an improved user experience comparable with that on Windows and Mac platforms. Experimental builds for ARM / Linux designed primarily for use with Raspberry Pi 3 / Ubuntu MATE 16.04 are also now available in the beta downloads area.
While the customizable nature of Linux is one of its greatest strengths, it also makes it more challenging to guarantee compatibility across a wide range of installations and distributions. Every effort is made to test compatibility, within the limits of our resources, however it is highly recommended to test with individual Linux distributions and host applications using the free demos provided. Builds for Raspberry Pi have been tested using a Raspberry Pi 3 running Ubuntu MATE 16.04 with Tracktion / Waveform as the host application.

Separate low frequency boost and cut controls provide the signature Pultec sound - deep bass boost without sacrificing definition or detail, perfect on a drum buss or across the entire mix. At the top end, passive filter emulation combined with separate high frequency boost and cut adds 'air' or clarity without becoming harsh, ideal for vocals or acoustic instruments.
The PTC-2A is available for Windows, Mac and Linux, VST, VST3, AU and AAX Native for ProTools 10.3.10 or later. V2.4.0 is a free update for existing users, available to download from the PTC-2A product page.
20-September-2015: OverTone FC70 Fairchild 670 emulation V2.3.2 released
Taming the dynamics of a mix is often necessary, but can leave it sounding lifeless and unexciting. The Fairchild 670 has become one of the most sought-after vintage limiters for its ability to control dynamics with authority without compromising the subtleties of a performance. Just like the hardware on which it is modelled, the OverTone FC70 keeps the mix in check without robbing it of power and detail, emulating the legendary smooth, effortless dynamic control and uniquely musical character of the classic Fairchild design.
Used on a drum buss it can add power to a snare, or weight to a kick drum. On vocals it can lend authority or subtlety to a performance in equal measure, placing the vocal perfectly in the mix.
V2.3.2 of this popular plug-in for Windows, Mac and Linux gives the user interface a more polished feel, with improved VU meter rendering, and support for Retina displays on Mac.
The FC70 also includes support for ProTools / AAX Native, V10.3.10 or later. More information about ProTools compatibility is provided in the compatibility guide
The FC70 is also included in the Vintage Mastering Bundle together with the PTC-2A Vintage Pultec EQ, offering a significant saving over purchasing the plug-ins separately.

"When we designed the OverTone AF2-10 EQ, we wondered what would happen if instead of designing a digital EQ, we set about designing the best analogue EQ we could, and then accurately modelling it digitally. The result is a plug-in, which accurately models the desirable natural sound and filter behaviour of an analogue EQ, but without the limitations, and with all the convenience and precision of a feature rich modern digital design."
