HoRNet VCA

HoRNet Plug-Ins has announced the release of VCA, a new dynamics effect plug-in for Windows and Mac.

VCA offers a toolkit for controlling the track level, it can work as a simple Voltage Controlled Amplifier using a control signal in its sidechain input. Starting from there you can add functionality like an envelope follower on the control signal, with attack and release ranging from 10ms to 3000ms or an RMS module.

The VCA acts only if the control signal is above the set threshold that goes from -80dB to 0dB, above this threshold positive or negative gain, which can be scaled by a specific control, is applied.

You can also transform VCA in a complete compressor or expander using its input or its output as control signal for feedback or feedforward compression/expansion.

VCA features

  • Internal (input and output) and external reference.
  • Positive and negative gain adjustment with gain scaling.
  • Absolute or relative gain detection.
  • Optional envelope detector with times raging from 1ms to 3000ms.
  • Optional RMS detection.
  • Graphical gain adjustment display.
  • Mac OS X (>=10.5 intel only) and Windows support.
  • 64bit compatibility both on Mac and Windows.
  • Audio Units VST2.4, VST3 and RTAS format.

The plug-in is available to purchase for 13.99 EUR.

HOFA-Plugins IQ-Comp V2

HOFA-Plugins has announced the release of IQ-Comp V2, a compressor effect plug-in for Windows and Mac.

IQ-Comp is a compressor which is well suited for all mixing and mastering applications. The FlavorEQs allow to apply versatile colorations to the compression.

The IQ-Comp’s upgrade extends it with a “rough” compression mode which is especially suited for transient rich drums. A look-ahead for compression was also added as a sidechain filter and preset buttons for the FlavorEQs. Furthermore, a clipper can limit the output level with up to 64 times oversampling. Along with the M/S mode this makes IQ-Comp V2 ideal for all buss and mastering applications.

IQ-Comp V2 for Windows and Mac (VST/AU/RTAS/AAX) is available to purchase for 119.90 EUR. The upgrade is free for all IQ-Comp customers who purchased after January 1st, 2013. Customers who purchase IQ-Comp before this date can upgrade for 29.90 EUR.

Dangerous Music releases Dangerous Compressor for tracking, mixing & mastering

Dangerous Music has announced the release of the Dangerous Compressor, a dual-mono/stereo compressor for tracking, mixing and mastering designed by legendary mastering gear guru Chris Muth.

Dangerous Compressor
The dangerous compressor was designed to be simple, transparent and powerful.

Built to the exacting standards of the mastering community, as with all things Dangerous, it has also proven indispensable for tracking and mixing. Tame a vocal, tighten a snare, crush a sampled loop or gently smooth a track- the compressor will rise to the occasion, providing rapid results, intuitive feedback and without coloration.

Like all Dangerous Music equipment, the compressor achieves musical, yet transparent results; in the words of producer and mixer Michael James (New Radicals, Hole, Robben Ford, L7, Edwin McCain, The Coronas) “The new Dangerous Compressor is a ‘must have’ in my world. It’s a refreshing complement to the currently fashionable boxes that indiscriminately add color to your sound-whether you want it or not.”

Dangerous Compressor features

  • Simple:
    • Hit your choice of buttons and twist the threshold for radio-ready results.
    • Smart Dyn Dual Slope Detection: Automatically limits peaks while stealthily compressing the average.
    • Auto Attack/Release: Replace “guess” with “yes” for rapid-fire results.
  • Transparent:
    • Performs like an automated fader: No more drawing vocal rides.
    • True Stereo Dual Detector: Traditional linking shares one detector, often resulting in a narrower stereo image.
    • Immaculate VCA: Virtually no distortion, even with 20dB of gain reduction.
  • Powerful:
    • Internal sidechain circuitry houses the audiophile soul of the compressor.
    • Bass Cut: Tightens the track without sacrificing the low end.
    • Sibilance Boost: Shave sibilance and shrill histrionics with zero post-compression hangover.

The new Dangerous Compressor is available through dealers worldwide for a street price of $2,799 USD.

Native Instruments releases Supercharger GT compressor plugin

Native Instruments Supercharger GT

Native Instruments has announced the release of Supercharger GT, compressor inspired by the rich, tube-driven sound of a boutique hardware unit.

A feature-rich follow-up to the SUPERCHARGER compressor released in December 2013, SUPERCHARGER GT goes beyond modern tube compression by adding dedicated Saturation and Character modes and additional controls for complete sonic fine-tuning.

SUPERCHARGER GT was designed for simple yet comprehensive sound shaping.
Producers can quickly dial in a wide range of compression effects using a single ‘Compress’ knob. The effect’s automatic make-up gain allows them to stay focused on the sound of the effect without having to compensate for the drop in volume compression can sometimes cause.
Pre-set Attack and Release settings provide a starting point for setting SUPERCHARGER GT’s response to incoming signals – producers can start with Punch, Gentle, and Slam modes. Dedicated Attack and Release controls allow an additional degree of fine-tuning.

Aside from compression, SUPERCHARGER GT also delivers a set of tone-shaping controls that make it more than just a compressor effect. A ‘Saturation’ knob with Mild, Crisp, and Slam saturation types give users three ways to add harmonic content to their tracks. At lower settings, SUPERCHARGER GT offers subtle harmonic enhancement. At more extreme settings it delivers raw, distorted coloration. The ‘Character’ knob can fill in missing low end and smooth out unruly high frequencies with Fat, Warm, and Aggressive character modes adding to its versatility.
Furthermore, a mid/side mode lets producers create space in a mix by applying the effect only to the left and right sides of a signal – perfect for adjusting stereo imaging. A detector high pass prevents unruly low end signals from mis-triggering the compressor. Combined, these features provide producers dynamic control, warmth, and sonic shaping in one convenient plug-in.

Supercharger GT is available to purchase for $99 USD/99 EUR/£89 GBP. Owners of Supercharger can upgrade for a special price of $49 USD/49 EUR/£42 GBP.
