Universal Audio releases Tonelux Tilt EQ & Valley People Dyna-mite Plug-Ins

Universal Audio has released the Tonelux Tilt EQ and Valley People Dyna-mite, two plug-ins developed by Softube for the UAD Powered Plug-Ins platform and Apollo audio interfaces.

Tonelux Tilt EQ

Designed to speed up EQ workflow and enhance creativity, the Tonelux Tilt EQ Plug-In allows for quick, simple, and effective broad-stroke EQ moves.

Softube Tonelux Tilt EQ

With the single Tilt control, engineers and producers can quickly mix as they go. Turn it to the right to cut lows and boost highs, turn it to the left to cut highs and boost lows. The Tonelux Tilt EQ Plug-In also models the transformer found in the Tonelux hardware, adding a subtle distortion for bass frequencies, fattening up the low end of a track.

The included Tilt Live EQ plug-in skips the transformer modeling, freeing up even more instances for live mixing. It also replaces the Gain control with a Boost Ceiling control, which keeps the output gain of the plug-in from being boosted no matter how much EQ boost is applied.

Tonelux Tilt EQ Plug-In features

  • A one knob equalizer that quickly gets your mix in shape.
  • Speeds up your workflow and makes mixing more intuitive.
  • Models the entire Tonelux Tilt circuit designed by Paul Wolff.
  • Smooth high and low pass filters.
  • Two plug-ins included —Tilt EQ with transformer modeling, Tilt Live optimized for live mixing.

Valley People Dyna-mite

The Valley People Dyna-mite Plug-In is an exacting emulation of the classic limiter/expander/gate designed by the legendary Paul Buff, who founded the historic PAL studio in southern California.

Valley People Dany-mite

The Dyna-mite has enjoyed a fanatical cult following for over three decades and is considered a “secret weapon” by top engineers and producers. Although it can be used as a traditional limiter or expander, the Dyna-mite is also a creative tool capable of extreme, yet musical effects on a variety of sound sources.

The Valley People Dyna-mite plug-in offers the exact features and sonics of the famed hardware unit and can transform instruments with dynamic gating textures. It can be used for nearly anything from gently limiting and de-essing vocals, to demolishing the transients of any sound.

Valley People Dyna-mite Plug-In features

  • An exacting emulation of the original legendary 80s dynamics processor.
  • Use it to limit, expand, gate or de-ess, with a wide range of uses.
  • Limiter goes from abusively squashing to transient-enhancing spikiness.
  • Expander/gate goes from strict and tight to subtly expanding by softening the soft sounds and bringing the louder sounds forward.

The Tonelux Tilt EQ and Valley People Dyna-mite plug-ins are available for purchase for $99 USD and $199 USD, respectively.

ChopChop features

  • External side chain.
  • Linear domain compression for an old school sound.
  • High pass filter in side chain.
  • Range control to limit amount of gain reduction.
  • Range knee to alter character of compression range.
  • Mid/side mode.
  • Freely adjustable channel linking.
  • Adjustable compression knee.
  • Full range ratio, all the way form 1:1 to 1:infinity.
  • Flexible metering.
  • Parallel compression.
  • Release acceleration control to alter compressors behavior.

ChopChop for Windows and Mac (VST/AU) is available for purchase for 19 EUR (non-commercial) / 49 EUR (commercial).

AudioD3CK has also released a version 1.1 update for all its plugins, which includes the following new features:

  • Resizable UIs.
  • Internal preset handling.
  • Undo/redo for parameter changes.
  • Updated manuals.
  • Better authorization process.
  • Improved installer.
  • Registration free demo versions.

de la Mancha sets free GTO, GTX, QB-3 & ClipStar plugins

de la Mancha has announced that its GTO, GTX, QB-3 and ClipStar plug-ins are now available as freeware.

de la Mancha GTX

GTO and GTX are a pair of vintage style ‘character’ compressors, designed like their muscle car name-sakes for brute power, pure speed and to make a loud noise. They have everything you’d expect in a thorough-bred compressor, but are tuned for maximum control and ease of use, each with their own unique vintage colouring on top.

GTO is a peak compressor, designed for raw power and lightning response. GTX has a smoother RMS delivery with further refinement in the shape of a knee control.

de la Mancha QB-3

QB3 is a vintage-style, 3-band EQ plug-in, with its own unique colouring and a few tricks up its sleeve. For each band you can adjust the centre frequency and gain.

For the low and high shelving bands you can adjust the steepness of the slope, whilst for the mid peaking band you can adjust the bandwidth. This allows a range of sounds from steep, sharp cuts to smooth and gentle boosts.

de la Mancha ClipStar

ClipStar is a soft clipper effect plugin, designed to prevent peaks in a subtler way than hard clipping, increase loudness and add pleasing saturation.

Where ClipStar differs from other clippers is that it can leave the low frequencies untouched, where distortion is more evident, and allow a greater boost in gain without noticeably degrading the signal. You can use ClipStar for peak protection, for loudness gain or for sympathetic distortion depending on your mood and the phase of the moon.

The plug-ins are available to download for Windows (VST). Donations to Cancer Research UK are appreciated.

Related: , , , , , Posted in news on Jun 13, 2014 - comment 0 comments

HoRNet Plug-Ins has released version 1.1.0 of Magnus, a brickwall limiter effect plug-in for Windows and Mac.

HoRNet Magnus

Magnus is a 2 stages brick-wall limiter, its purpose is to make your tracks the loudest possible.

To achieve this the limiting process is divided in two steps: the first is a clipper, hard or soft, that let you cut away those small peaks that nobody is going to hear, the second is a limiter with a fixed threshold of -0.2dB.

Changes in Magnus v1.1.0

  • New fast gain reduction meters with peak hold.
  • Output level control.
  • Gain readout on clipper and limiter knobs.
  • Improved oversampling algorithm.
  • Fixes for crashes on some hosts.

Magnus for Windows and Mac (VST/AU/RTAS) is available for purchase for 19.99 EUR. The update is free for all the existing owners.
