Cakewalk intros ProChannel support for +10db David Bendeth Signature Series Compressor

Cakewalk has announced ProChannel support for the +10db David Bendeth Signature Series Compressor plug-in from Boz Digital Labs.

+10db David Bendeth Signature Series Compressor

The +10db Compressor Plug-in, the brainchild of producer David Bendeth (Paramore, Breaking Benjamin, Papa Roach, Of Mice & Men, A Day to Remember) and audio plug-in designer Boz Digital Labs, is a channel strip plugin meticulously modeled after one of the industries most iconic hardware compressors.

This rare analogue unit has never before been designed into a plug-in. Along with harnessing the sonic feel of this unique piece, the +10db also comes with 10 presets that were created by Bendeth, allowing users’ drum and vocal tracks to benefit from his years of experience in the studio.

SONAR’s ProChannel was a feature that was introduced in SONAR X1 Producer, and has continued to evolve. This analog-style channel strip offers SONAR customers the ability to create their own mixer architecture, with customizable mixer channel strips. Accessible on every track and bus inside of SONAR, musicians can get that epic, vintage sound of classic records from the past 25 years.

“Both Boz and I are excited about the prospect of working with Cakewalk and supporting SONAR, ” says Bendeth. “They have such a great long history in the world of computer-based recording. We are also very proud of the +10db compressor and look forward to future collaborations with Cakewalk in the coming years.”

The +10db Compressor includes three separate plugins: +10db Compressor, +10db Equaliser and +10db Channel Strip. The Compressor and Equaliser will be available as ProChannel modules and all plugins will also be available as AU, VST3, AAX, and RTAS on Mac and Windows-based digital audio workstations.

The plug-ins will be available at the Cakewalk Store starting late January, 2015.

unEarthed Sampling releases Interplanetary for Kontakt

unEarthed Sampling has launched Interplanetary, a new sample library for Native Instruments Kontakt featuring cinematic tuned glass bowl multisamples.

unEarthed Sampling Interplanetary

Inspired heavily by scores like Interstellar and Solaris, Interplanetary features cinematic multisamples taken from an antique glass bowl which have been turned into something otherworldly.

For this instrument unEarthed Sampling struck the bowl with fingers, sticks, and mallets and each patch not only contains 6 round robins, but has also been carefully tuned to give you maximum flexibility as a composer. The 16 patches cover a wide variety of playing styles including the tuned struck patches mentioned above as well as ethereal pads and even a couple of patches derived from bowing the bowl with a cello bow. For an added bonus, there is also a low and hard hitting multisampled analogue synth bass patch which is good for under-laying these instruments (or the instruments / libraries of your choosing).

Interplanetary is available for purchase for the introductory price of £7.99 GBP. Requires full version of Kontakt 5.3.1.37 or higher.

Auganizer announces Auganizer 2 AU manager

Related: , , , Posted in news on Jan 27, 2015 - comment 0 comments

Auganizer has announced the imminent arrival of Auganizer 2, the next major version of the Audio Unit management app for Mac OS X.

Auganizer

Since the day Apple moved to the Audio Unit format users have been forced to view an illogical list of manufacturers and developers names when trying to access their plugins.
Not anymore. Now you can organise and view your Audio Units the way you desire in Logic, Garageband, Main Stage with limited support also for Ableton Live, Maschine and other AU hosts.

Auganizer 2 features

  • Duplicate and rename plugins multiple times to allow “native AU” of Reaktor ensembles, Kontakt instruments, VMR, Nebula, Patchbays or any other reason you can think to run multiple separate Audio Units of the same host. The limit is your imagination and desire.
  • Full integration with Logic X 10.1’s new plugin menu. Migrate your already created settings over from Auganizer 1 into this new menu to save time. Manage as many sub-folders as you want in the easy to use familiar OS X like work flow. Much easier to manage multiple folders.
  • Plugin notes, including pre-populated information about your plugin library, what it does, what it emulates and anything you wish you add or change. Combined with our plugin GUI it helps to categorise plugins without having to leave the app or check what it is what. Essential for large libraries.
  • Full compatibility with multiple DAWs, Logic 7, 8, 9 and X and OS X 10.6-10.10.
  • Easier editing of multiple plugins.
  • Updated UI with Yosemite features.
  • Full management of Logic 7, 8 and 9 user presets.
  • Plus much much more.

Auganizer 2 will be a free upgrade for all current users of Auganizer. A beta will be made available for current users shortly and the full release will be in the Spring.
