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.

HoRNet Plug-Ins updates Magnus limiter to v1.1.0

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.

Lively Audio Maxwell Smart

Lively Audio has released version 2.0 of Maxwell Smart, a transparent true peak limiter / loudness maximizer with look-ahead.

In addition to previous versions, the new one introduces built-in ISP (inter-sample peak) detection equivalent to 4x oversampling (without any of the artifacts or heavy CPU load). It’s been tested by using true peak meters that comply with the latest ITU, EBU and ATSC recommendations for true peak detection.

There are also 3 modes for controlling the sound (smooth, normal and loud), and the GUI has been updated to look like it wasn’t designed 20 years ago.

Maxwell Smart features

  • Transparent true peak limiter / loudness maximizer with look-ahead.
  • Built-in ISP detection equivalent to 4x oversampling (without any of the artifacts).
  • Compliant with the latest ITU, EBU and ATSC recommendations for true peak detection.
  • Adjustable threshold and ceiling (-24dB … 0dB).
  • 3 modes to control the sound: smooth, normal and loud.
  • Compensated latency of 4ms.
  • Support for all sample rates above 11.025kHz.
  • Ideal for mastering, or as a drum bus limiter for example.

Maxwell Smart is available as freeware for Windows (VST).

Voxengo updates Deft Compressor to v1.5

Related: , , , , Posted in news on Jun 10, 2014 - comment 0 comments

Voxengo has released version 1.5 of its Deft Compressor audio track and bus compressor effect plug-in for Windows and Mac.

Voxengo Deft Compressor

The characteristic feature of this compressor is its ability to produce “slim” and “slick” sounding compression, with intelligibility enhancement effect. Such result is achieved by compressor’s timing function that closely resembles the S-curve on both attack and release stages.

Changes in Deft Compressor v1.5

  • -6 dB/oct low-pass and high-pass filters added.
  • Added VST3 support with side-chain.

Deft Compressor for Windows and Mac (VST/AU) is available for purchase for $69.95 USD.

Voxengo updates Elephant limiter plugin to v4.1

Related: , , , , Posted in news on May 30, 2014 - comment 0 comments

Voxengo has released version 4.1 of Elephant, a mastering limiter plugin for professional audio and sound production applications.

Voxengo Elephant

Elephant is a highly competitive plug-in for mastering applications: it features a variety of limiter modes that can be deeply customized, and a comprehensive set of level metering tools, including headroom estimation and K-metering. Elephant’s built-in linear-phase oversampling is an important element in achieving high-quality peak limiting and loudness maximization without inter-sample overshoots.

Changes in Elephant v4.1

  • Extended the input gain range to +24 dB.
  • Extended the output gain range to -15 dB.
  • Made the “Eval” switch to not affect the output statistics.
  • Extended the “Release Shape” range to 2, offers an extreme punch and “hardness”, via an idealized S-curve release shape.
  • Added “EL-4 BRITE” factory limiter mode.
  • Made the output signal level to never exceed 1 dB over the Out Gain setting.
  • Improved the “EL-4″ algorithm reducing transient distortion and “boxiness”: the sound is more biting less woofing now.
  • Improved oversampling filters reducing chances of overshoots.

Elephant for Windows and Mac (VST/AU) is available for purchase for $119.95 USD.
