FabFilter releases bug-fix update for FabFilter Pro-MB and Pro-Q 2

FabFilter has released a bug-fix update for its Pro-MB and Pro-Q 2 effect plug-ins for Windows and Mac.

FabFilter Pro-MB

The update fixes various bugs and small visual issues that surfaced since the December 2014 update that introduced Retina support and added numerous FabFilter Pro-MB features. FabFilter recommends all customers to update to these latest versions.

Changes in FabFilter Pro-MB 1.11 / FabFilter Pro-Q 2.03

  • Fixed a bug that caused knobs and sliders to respond incorrectly to subtle mouse movements while dragging on OS X and on High DPI displays on Windows.
  • Pro-MB: Renamed the existing interface size options to Medium and Extra Large, and added a new intermediate Large option that will fit comfortably on 1920×1080 monitors on OS X.
  • Pro-MB: Fixed a bug when deleting a muted band in Dynamic Phase mode: the mute effect would remain audible after deleting the band.
  • Pro-MB: Fixed display behavior when zoomed in horizontally: display curves and dragging would not work correctly for bands docked at the left or right edges of the frequency scale.
  • Pro-MB: Fixed sidechain filtering control behavior when zoomed in horizontally in the display.
  • Pro-MB: Fixed possibly incorrect gain change reporting for bands that use compression in combination with a Stereo Link setting below 100%.
  • Pro-Q 2: Fixed a bug in the VST 2 plugin (introduced in Pro-Q 2.02) that caused the Auto Gain setting to always be set to Off when loading sessions saved with Pro-Q 2.01.
  • Various small visual fixes and improvements.

The updates are fully compatible with previous versions, and free for existing FabFilter Pro-MB and Pro-Q 2 owners. The latest versions and 30-day trials of all FabFilter plug-ins are available for download now.

FabFilter Pro-Q 2 is available for EUR 149, USD 179 or GBP 114, and FabFilter Pro-MB is available for EUR 169, USD 199 or GBP 129, supporting both Windows and Mac OS X in VST and VST 3, Audio Units, AAX, RTAS and AudioSuite plug-in formats. Bundles with FabFilter Pro-Q 2, Pro-MB and other FabFilter plug-ins are also available.

Related: , , , , , , Posted in news on Jan 29, 2015 - comment 0 comments

Synchro Arts has announced the immediate availability of Revoice Pro 3, a major upgrade to the application already used worldwide by top audio professionals for the fastest and easiest timing and pitch alignment of vocals, instruments and ADR.

Synchro Arts Revoice Pro 3

Now Revoice Pro 3 offers stunning new sound quality, powerful new tools, and workflow enhancements for users of all popular DAWs including Logic Pro X, Cubase, Nuendo and Pro Tools.

Revoice Pro 3 arrives with a host of improvements and major new features, including the simplest and fastest Warp functions for manually adjusting audio timing and pitch, What’s more, users report that Revoice Pro 3 provides the most natural and transparent-sounding processing available.

At the heart of Revoice Pro is our unique Automatic Performance Transfer (APT) process, which can give one signal the timing, pitch, vibrato and level features of another signal, and the realistic Doubler function. These, along with the added Warp process mean there is now a one-stop, time-saving, high-quality solution for creative and corrective audio manipulation tasks.

In addition, integration with most DAWs is now faster and easier than ever, using the simple Revoice Pro Link plug-ins or fast and familiar drag-and-drop or copy-and-paste operations.

For those new to Revoice Pro there simply is nothing else that offers vocal time and pitch alignment, combining the power, ease of use and best-in-class sound that Revoice Pro offers. Say goodbye to feature poor, hard to use and glitchy vocal plug-ins.
Revoice Pro delivers for both music and post applications… hearing is believing.

Changes in Revoice Pro 3

  • Manual Pitch and Time Warping of audio – intuitive, easy to select and manipulate time and pitch and maintain the highest quality.
  • Pitch correction functions – select modes over any range, with automatic snap to pitch grid options.
  • Time-variable Pitch transfer parameters – graphically vary pitch tightness, offset and transfer strength to control the APT function’s processing.
  • Easily create and change stacked tight vocals – change a Guide signal’s timing or pitch, and all related output tracks follow the changes automatically.
  • Improved Interface – Simpler, cleaner, faster and easier to understand and use.
  • Stunning audio quality– processing can produce totally transparent time and pitch adjustments.
  • AU Monitor plug-in – plays Revoice Pro’s output through AU stereo insert and tracks DAW’s playback in same way as Revoice Pro’s RTAS and VST3 monitor plug-ins.
  • Enhanced Doubler – can modify timing of output and has longer and negative time delay up +/- 200 ms.
  • Now works with even more DAWs – see www.synchroarts.com for details.
  • Hundreds of improvements and fixes – added to simplify and speed up learning and using.

Revoice Pro is available for purchase for RRP $599 USD/449 EUR/£374 GBP. Prices ex VAT where applicable. A 14-day free trial license (iLok-based) for Revoice Pro is avaialble from Synchro Arts.

NUGEN Audio donates VisLM licenses to 41 NaSTA Student Stations

NUGEN Audio has announced that it has supplied licenses of its VisLM loudness metering plug-in to 41 student television stations throughout the U.K.

Nugen Audio VisLM

All members of the National Student Television Association (NaSTA), the student stations will use the plug-ins to help them comply with the European Broadcasting Union’s EBUR128 loudness recommendations, and also as a training tool for students to gain loudness monitoring experience in preparation for professional careers.

“People usually think of television as a visual medium, but they are more likely to notice flawed audio. Therefore, it’s critical that broadcast sound be flawless, not only to meet regulations but also to provide the best possible experience for viewers,” said Mitchell Perry, NaSTA marketing officer. “With its generous sponsorship, NUGEN Audio is giving our student members an opportunity that is simply not available in most of the U.K.’s television production courses: a chance to learn about loudness management and how to edit sound according to industry standards. After working with VisLM, students will be able to add another valuable skill to their CVs and increase their employability.”

VisLM is an intuitive, standard-compliant tool for measuring, comparing, and contrasting loudness during production, broadcast, post-production, and quality assurance, on the fly or after the fact, for entire sections of audio. With detailed, objective loudness measurement, history, and logging facilities, VisLM supports ITU, ATSC, EBU, and Game Audio standards to ensure loudness compliance for titles to be distributed virtually anywhere in the world.

NaSTA distributed the VisLM licenses to student stations throughout its network in Scotland, England, and Wales. VisLM is in use daily by on-campus television stations to create and edit programs ranging from major events and sports matches to coverage of student elections.

“For more than 40 years, NaSTA has played a lead role in supporting, promoting, and representing student television in the U.K.,” said Jon Schorah, founder and creative director, NUGEN Audio. “It is our pleasure to assist NaSTA in this effort, and it’s gratifying to know that our technology is helping these future television professionals develop the skills they need to be successful.”
