PlugInGuru releases MegaWav Epic & MegaWav Evil for Serum

PlugInGuru has announced the release of MegaWav Epic and MegaWav Evil, two new patch libraries for the Serum wavetable based synthesizer instrument from Xfer Records.

PlugInGuru MegaWav Epic & Evil

These libraries were created jointly by John “Skippy” Lehmkuhl and Seth Norman – and while originally this was going to be a single library, we both created a lot of really cool patches and decided to create 2 libraries for Serum at one time!

So what’s the difference between Epic and Evil? In a nutshell:

  • MegaWav Epic is aimed at EDM/Pop Music and the BPM patches generally have a 4-on-the-floor flavor.
  • MegaWav Evil is aimed at DubStep/BroStep/Bass Music and the BPM patches match these musical styles very well.

Every one of the 200 patches has all 4 Macro knobs and the Modulation wheel assigned to do serious sonic damage to the sound in interesting ways. This added programming takes a lot of time that most libraries ignore (because the programmers are lazy). PlugInGuru has NEVER ignored this and always programmed every patch in every library to use all real-time controls to manipulate the sounds.

The packs are available for the introductory price of $27 USD each until December 1st, 2014 (regular $30 USD); the bundle of both is $50 USD (regular $60 USD).

Sound Radix releases Drum Leveler transient leveling plugin

Sound Radix has announced the release of Drum Leveler, an advanced audio transient leveling software for Windows and Mac.

Sound Radix Drum Leveler

Drum Leveler is a new beat detection-based downward and upward compressor/expander. By selectively applying gain to single drum beats, Drum Leveler easily achieves the desired target level for each beat, without affecting bleed noise or beats that are out of the user-defined processing range.

Unlike traditional envelope-followers and VCA’s, Drum Leveler runs an advanced new algorithm that takes full advantage of modern CPU’s allowing unparalleled control over your drums’ dynamics.

Drum Leveler is powerful yet easy to use. It will help you achieve solid driving grooves, improve clarity and add punch to any percussive performance.

Drum Leveler features

  • Transparent, beat detection-based simultaneous upward & downward compressor and expander.
  • Applies gain to each beat individually to achieve set target level.
  • Gain reduction and expansion is transient-accurate to the drum beat for natural, distortion-free transients reproduction.
  • Dual threshold levels allows processing any level range to affect only specific beats within a track such as ghost notes or bleed without affecting other beats.
  • Mono, Stereo, Dual Mono and Mid/Side operation modes.
  • Easy to use and intuitive user interface.

Drum Leveler for Windows and Mac (VST/AU/RTAS/AAX) is available for purchase for $149 USD. Existing Sound Radix customers can purchase Drum Leveler for $99 until December 30th, 2014.
