de la Mancha has announced the release of sixtyfive, a vintage-style, RMS Compressor, inspired by the dbx® 165A, a classic 1970′s compressor found in many studios, but it also adds a couple of new twists.
It’s a soft-knee RMS compressor with a vintage flavour. The RMS detection and soft-knee help to give a smooth and musical compression experience, the non-linear response imparts character and the gentle saturation brings colour and warmth. As well as all of the originals features, this version adds parallel compression, extended knob ranges and peak metering
sixtyfive can deliver a range of compression from gentle smoothing of vocal performances to brutal slamming of your drum buss. Enjoy!

de la Mancha has announced the release of Urban Decay, a multi-band distortion effect, with 13 different flavours of dirt across 3 perfectly split frequency bands.
At the heart of it are 7 different distortion types, each designed to bring a different way to dirty up your audio, and together form a powerful combination. 3 of the distortion methods also have 3 algorithms each, allowing more tweaking to get the filth quota just right
Want different amounts of distortion across the bass, mids and highs? No problem. You can adjust the wet/dry mix level and volume across 3 frequency bands to really get the sound you want. You can accurately adjust the split points of the 3 bands and there is zero-phasing and zero-crossover, due to using the inversion method.

- 7 distortion effects, with 13 combinations.
- 3 bands can be split by frequency or layered at full spectrum.
- Splits can be adjusted to 1Hz accuracy.

de la Mancha has announced the release of loophole, a midi-triggered loop sampler, which allows you play sections of up to 4 different loops using midi notes to control which section of which loop plays.
This can be a great way to mash up 4 different loop styles or add quick variations on 4 similar loops. As well as having full control of which sections to play, you can also trigger random sections too (well this is a de la Mancha plugin!)
You can load any 4 loops and sync them to host tempo, then using midi notes you can play the loops, switching between loops, playing several loops and defining which sections play. You also get a visual display of the loops, the play position and which sections are being played. The multi-out version lets you apply further effects processing to each loop separately. Loophole also has a volume envelope per loop to declick or fade in/out
- Loop sampler, using midi notes to trigger sections of each loop, either specifically or randomly.
- 171 original drum loops in 24bit Wav format, across 19 different kits covering acoustic and electronic styles (Rock, Jazz, Breakbeat, DnB, Hip Hop, Dubstep, Lofi, Glitch, 8 bit, House, Trance and more).
- Loads any 16, 24 and 32 bit WAV in mono or stereo.
- Very low CPU (<1% on 2.2GHZ dual core CPU).
- Tempo-sync each loop by setting length in beats, allowing stretching or different lengths if desired.
- Play sections of each loop, each triggered by a different midi note.
- Play random sections using one midi note.
- Graphical representation of loops, play position and triggered sections.
- Normalise and mono options per loop.
- Envelope per loop to fade in/out or declick.
- Volume control and mute per loop.
