AudioD3CK ST-R-I-P

AudioD3CK has announced ST-R-I-P, an analog inspired channel strip effect plug-in for Windows and Mac.

ST-R-I-P features subtle saturation and noise to emulate the behavior of analog mixing desks.

It’s intended use is with pure in the box music to give it some texture and depth while having traditional sound shaping features like compression and equalizing at your fingertips.

Get traditional, get ST-R-I-P

ST-R-I-P for Windows and Mac (VST/AU) is available for purchase for 19 EUR (toy version) / 49 EUR (tool version).

Sound Magic releases Dynamic Bundle

Sound Magic Dynamic Bundle

Sound Magic has announced Dynamic Bundle, a collection of 5 dynamic processing plug-ins at a discounted price.

Neo Loudness is a comprehensive tool designed to control loudness. Neo Loudness not only includes traditional compressors and limiters, but it also features a new type of Maximizer.

Neo Dynamic is a new concept in dynamic processing technology. Different from ordinary compressors/limiters, Neo Dynamic not only offers more sonic variety than traditional units, it is far easier to use. Neo Dynamic starts with 10 compressors/limiters, modeled after famous brand names such as SSL,API,TubeTech and so on. Each of these has their own famous “flavors” ready to use.

Neo Preamp is reminiscent of a vintage channel strip which not only boosts or cuts the audio signal, but also add “things” to it. People like to remember that this or that particular vintage gear added a certain color to their recordings – and this is exactly what Neo Preamp does.

Neo Transient is a new concept for level independent dynamic processing. Unlike common compressors and limiters, Neo Transient reacts on Transients – those short peaks in the audio signal – rather than the overall signal loudness level. In this way, Neo Transient creates an entirely new way to process your tracks.

Meter Man is a plug-in features different K-System Meters.

The bundle is available for purchase for 199 EUR. Existing users who have already purchased any plug-in in the dynamic bundle can upgrade by paying the difference.

Overtone DSP DYN4000

OverTone DSP has released DYN4000, a channel compressor/expander/gate plug-in for Windows and Mac.

Based on channel dynamics processing from one of the best-known British recording consoles, the DYN4000 comprises compressor / limiter and expander / gate sections.

The plug-in includes a true RMS side-chain detector, while the compressor provides a switchable soft / hard knee characteristic, ensuring smooth onset of compression at the threshold point or more aggressive dynamics control on demand.

Switchable compressor fast attack settings are also provided as is variable programme dependent release while the expander / gate section provides a 1:2 downward expander or a 1:∞ gate setting with threshold hysteresis.

DYN4000 for Windows and Mac (VST/AU) is available for purchase for £20 GBP.

Solid State Logic releases X-Saturator, X-ValveComp & X-Phase + iLok 2

Solid State Logic has announced that three new Duende Native plug-ins and migration to iLok 2 copy protection are now available online.

SSL Duende Native

The superior audio quality and deep feature set of the SSL Duende Native plug-in range has earned the respect of a very discerning clientele through the years.

The three new plug-ins complement the existing range with two plug-ins (X-Saturator & X-ValveComp) designed to bring some analogue saturation and distortion emulation to your digital DAW and the third (X-Phase) delivering high precision frequency specific phase correction.

The new plug-ins are available now via the SSL web site. To coincide with the new plug-in release SSL has migrated the entire Duende Native plug-in collection to the iLok 2 copy protection system. SSL has also announced a summer release for AAX native versions of the entire suite.

New Duende plug-ins

  • X-Phase is an All-pass Filter plug-in that offers the user manual control and benchmark audio quality. It enables the user to apply a phase shift (sometimes called a phase offset) at a specified frequency within a signal. Unlike other filter types where the gain of selected frequencies is altered, with an All-pass Filter the gain remains unchanged throughout the signal. This is useful for fixing phase problems with microphones when recording: eg overheads causing phase problems when mixed with close mic’s.
  • X-Saturator delivers a stunning range of analogue style distortion effects. It is an emulation of an analogue circuit that introduces either 2nd order valve style or 3rd order transistor style distortion or a blend of the two. At low drive settings the distortion is mild and can add gentle warming to help instruments sit nicely in a mix or to add a little extra edge to help instruments cut through a mix. As drive levels are increased so too is the level of distortion until at high drive levels heavy distortion occurs.
  • X-ValveComp is a fully-featured mono or stereo channel compressor with a full set of classic channel compressor controls and an added ‘valve’ emulation stage. The valve emulation stage sits after the compressor in the signal path and adds a variable degree of primarily 2nd order harmonic saturation and distortion that thickens and colours the sound. The compressor can be switched between Peak or RMS modes and has a full set of standard controls.

X-Phase is available for purchase for £199 GBP/249 EUR/$329 USD. X-Saturator and X-ValveComp are £69 GBP/89 EUR/$119 USD each, with an introductory price of £49 GBP/59 EUR/$85 USD for the first 30 days only. Prices exclude tax.

Devoloop releases DynaRage for Reason

Devoloop has released DynaRage, a tube compressor Rack Extension for Propellerhead Reason.

Devoloop DynaRage

DynaRage is our state-of-the-art Dynamics Compression+Tube Distortion module, made exclusively for Reason.

We think that just releasing another Compressor, when there is a chaos of many other Compressors all around here, would have been a shame and a loss of time. So we coded a flawless algorithm, implemented as many controls as a today producer/sound engineer needs, and added a Tube Distortion non-linear emulation algorithm, with a Tube Valve glowing according to the amount of distortion applied to the sound. Pack this with 2 accurate and vintage-ish VU-Meter, and you are done.

DynaRage features

  • Sensitivity for Sidechain Detector.
  • Fully Adjustable Attack and Release.
  • Compression Ratio between 1:1 and 20:1 (fixed to infinite:1 when in Limit Mode).
  • Soft/Hard Knee selector.
  • Compressor/Limiter mode.
  • Sidechain Input (with Key Listen option).
  • Tube Distortion real linear and non-linear processing (with Tube glowing).
  • Left and Right Channels Gain Reduction Vintage VU-Meters.
  • Gain Reduction CV Output.
  • Low CPU Mode.

DynaRage is available for purchase for the introductory price of $29 USD/25 EUR until May 16th, 2014.
