iZotope introduces Mastering Essentials

iZotope has announced Mastering Essentials, a new tool designed specifically for Acoustic Mixcraft Pro Studio 6.

By licensing elements from Ozone, iZotope’s flagship mastering suite, Acoustica is delivering a basic mastering solution approachable for musicians of any level.

Mastering Essentials features

  • Valve EQ module: high-quality 4-band EQ.
  • Room Simulation (Reverb) module: controls for reverb and stereo widening, including a vectorscope for visualizing the stereo spread of the audio.
  • Tube amplifier module: Bass Compression, a Tube Limiter, and Tube Saturation components.
  • Over 80 presets, including presets for general use, special FX, audio enhancement, restoration, and over 40 different genre presets.

Mastering Essentials is available from iZotope for third-party and OEM licensing for Mac or Windows applications. Acoustica’s Mixcraft Pro Studio 6 is currently due to be released in March, 2012.

Acoustica Pianissimo

Acoustica has released Pianissimo, a virtual grand piano, delivering the rich, warm sound and expressiveness of a classic grand piano.

Pianissimo uses a combination of sample playback and advanced physical modeling to create a stunning acoustic grand piano sound.

This warm, natural sound is then paired with a professional studio-quality reverb algorithm to add the depth and ambiance of a real acoustic space. Add in modeled sympathetic resonance, incidental mechanical hammer sounds, remarkable control over tone and velocity response, 256 voices of polyphony, and incredibly low CPU usage, and Pianissimo might just be the best sounding, most playable virtual piano ever.

  • Adjustable incidental piano sounds, including mechanical noises from damper pedal and key release, for an unparalleled level of realism.
  • 256 voices of polyphony and low CPU usage make Pianissimo ideal for solo piano performance, studio compositions, and live performance.
  • Adjustable piano lid, velocity curve, tone controls, sympathetic resonance, reverb, and chorus effect allow you to tailor the piano’s tone and response to fit your playing style.
  • Works in all major digital audio recording software packages (including Mixcraft™) as a VSTi plug-in instrument.
  • Stand-alone version features metronome, two-track sequencer, and ability to mix down recordings to WAV, MP3, WMA, or OGG Vorbis audio files.
