Related: , , , , , Posted in news on Dec 18, 2014 - comment 0 comments

u-he has released version 1.0 of Presswerk, a dynamics processor effect plug-in for Windows and Mac.

u-he Presswerk

Presswerk is u-he’s vision of a compressor, blending the tone and warmth of classic hardware models with modern features.

The interface gives you quick access to all the controls, with a diverse feature set that lets you tweak every detail of your sound.

Presswerk is a compressor toolkit rich with musical soul that also packs a punch when you need it.

Presswerk features

  • 3 different detection topologies: feed-forward, feed-back and interactive (mix of FF and FB).
  • Dual channel (stereo) or two independent channels.
  • M/S (Mid-Side) mode – for more detailed stereo processing and delicate mastering tasks.
  • DPR (Dual Phase Rotation) mode – creates an emulation of classic outboard gear phase response by rotating lower and mid frequencies at input and output stages.
  • Adjustable Non Linear control – simulates the behaviour of specific compressors or gain-reduction circuits.
  • Sidechain ready with 6 / 12 dB high pass & low pass filters.
  • Pre or post compression stage saturation with variable “warmth” (tilt filter style) and “dynamics” to model the distortion behaviour of the FET-based voltage dividers from classic devices.
  • Presets for common compression tasks (eg. mixdown, ducking, vocals).
  • User interface zooms in 10% steps.
  • 32 & 64-bit VST, AU, AAX.
  • and more…

Presswerk is available for purchase for the introductory price of $89 USD until December 31st, 2014 (regular $129 USD).

u-he Presswerk

u-he has launched a first release candidate of its Presswerk dynamics effect plug-in for Windows and Mac.

revision 3262 is our first release candidate:

Presswerk10RC1Mac.zip
Presswerk10RC1Win.zip

Please let us know what you find, we would like to release it before x-mas.

Note: We’ve removed unused parameters from the list of automatable parameters. Therefore, if you did host automation with a beta version, you will need to replace the automated parameters. This will most likely be the parameter prior to the one you’ll see, i.e. the desired parameter is now the one before that in the list.

Presswerk RC1 is available to download from the u-he forum at KVR Audio.

Acustica Audio releases Titanium & Green effect plugins

Acustica Audio has announced the release of its Titanium multi-band compressor and Green, an equalizer effect plug-in for Windows and Mac.

Acustica Audio Titanium

Titanium is the very first multiband compressor of its kind in the sampled audio plug-in market. Acustica Audio, in a move that is bold even for a cutting-edge company like that, has sampled one and is now bringing it to you in the form of a ground-breaking and great sounding Acqua plug-in.

Compared to more traditional compressors, there are very few multiband compressors available, both hardware and software. Of the software plug-ins available, none are based on sampling, and none come close to the sound of Titanium.

Titanium is based on the exciting new compressor technology that uses:

  • a new extremely fast engine;
  • newly developed envelope followers that give a performance and functionality unheard of in Nebula/Acqua until now;
  • a new tech for modelling the envelope follower shape.

Titanium for Windows and Mac (VST/AU) is available for purchase for 129 EUR.

Green is an equalizer characterized by “astonishing precision and sonic accuracy”.

Acustica Audio Green

Acustica has been trying to work on the perfect equalizer for many years. Our products are designed to provide the highest possible quality, without compromise. Never trust rushed judgments: some products cause transients to be damaged and have unmusical phase responses. If at first listen they may sound usable and dangerously similar, in the long run your music will lose transparency and become terribly blurry and confusing. This is a new problem that is rarely emphasized, but which can make a huge difference to the communication capacity of your emotional message.

If the hardware musicality is what you are looking for and you feel this is one thing that has not been perfectly reproduced in the software world yet, now’s the time for you to reap the fruit of our experience. The Green Equalizer is inspired by a reference standard parametric equalizer, characterized by astonishing precision and sonic accuracy when sculpting the response of any source. Green Eq offers overlapping frequency bands, which provide great precision and flexibility, a complete control over a wide frequency range and “Q” setting, along with 15 dB of cut or boost on five individual bands. The Low and High bands offer counter-clockwise detents for shelving curves in addition to the variable “Q” values from 0.4 to 4 found in the other three bands.

Green for Windows and Mac (VST/AU) is available for purchase for 119 EUR.

  • Introducing Solo Gain. While soloing a band, you can now adjust the listening gain by moving the mouse up and down.
