Audio Assault has announced the release of XCTR, a harmonic exciter effect plug-in for Windows and Mac.

Audio Assault XCTR

Harmonic exciters can give a shine to certain frequencies in the mix. They can be used on drums to make the cymbals shine, bring up the kick drum on a stereo bus, bring some life back into a dull instrument, or even some shine to the whole mix.

XCTR is a multi band harmonic exciter based on our Head Crusher saturation.

XCTR features

  • 4 processing bands.
  • Independent drive and mix for each band.
  • 5 independent distortion models for each band.
  • 4x oversampling.

XCTR for Windows and Mac (VST/AU/RTAS/AAX) is available for purchase for $39.99 USD.

Universal Audio releases UAD Software v8.0

Universal Audio has announced the release of UAD Software v8.0 for UAD-2 DSP Accelerator hardware and Apollo audio interfaces.

UAD Software V8.0

UAD Software v8.0 includes Apollo Expanded, allowing users of Thunderbolt-equipped Apollo Twin, Apollo DUO, Apollo QUAD, and Apollo 16 audio interfaces to freely combine up to four Apollos and six total UAD-2 devices — adding I/O and DSP as their studio grows.

Apollo Expanded also marks the introduction of Console 2.0 software, giving Thunderbolt-equipped Apollo users dynamic new workflow options with more than 25 new user-requested features. Console 2.0 will also be coming to Apollo FireWire interfaces (Mac and Windows) in Fall 2015.

Apollo Expanded features

  • “Mix and Match” up to four Apollos (any model) over Thunderbolt (Mac).
  • Simple Thunderbolt cable cascading between units.
  • Combine up to six UAD-2 devices per system.
  • New Console 2.0 — High-resolution 64-bit software interface for Thunderbolt-equipped Apollos with over 25 new user-requested features.
  • New Flex Driver lets users customize Core Audio I/O — name, save, and share presets for different hardware setups and DAWs.
  • Star clocking over Thunderbolt distributes high-quality clock to all Apollos.
  • Add an Apollo Twin for desktop monitor control as well as additional DSP and connectivity.

UAD Software v8.0 also adds Mac OS X Yosemite compatibility and all-new plug-in categories to the UAD Powered Plug-Ins platform.

Sound Machine® Wood Works® Plug-In — $299 USD

Sound Machine Wood Works
  • Record your acoustic guitar direct, in real time with microphone quality sound using Apollo Twin, DUO, or QUAD.

  • Freedom to re-mic as you mix, changing and adding microphones as needed to fit your production.

UA Distortion Essentials Plug-In Bundle — $249 USD

UA Distortion Essentials Plug-In Bundle
  • Features the legendary Ibanez Tube Screamer TS808 (also sold separately for $129), Raw Distortion™ (based on the vintage early-80s Pro Co Rat), and Bermuda Triangle (based on the early 70s-era Electro-Harmonix Big Muff Pi) plug-ins*.
  • Harnesses Unison™ technology to precisely emulate the circuit interaction, gain range, and clip points of the original stompboxes.

Friedman Amplifiers Plug-In Collection by Brainworx — $249 USD

Friedman Amplifiers Plug-In Collection
  • Faithful emulation of two modern boutique amps inspired by classic British tube amps, designed by legendary amp guru David Friedman.
  • FX Rack features lo-fi delay, noise gate, and filter controls.

ToneBoosters releases TB Sibalance plugin

Related: , , , , Posted in news on Mar 02, 2015 - comment 0 comments

ToneBoosters has announced the release of TB Sibalance, a de-esser effect plug-in for Windows and Mac.

TB Sibalance

De-essers can be an evil necessity. Vocal recordings may be too sibilant requiring de-essing (or excess sibilance removal), but most de-essers come with very clearly audible drawbacks as well. After de-essing, vocals may sound muffled, the ‘s’ may sound more like an ‘f’, or even worse, the operation of a de-esser manifests itself as a clearly-audible time-varying filter.

TB Sibalance provides very powerful tools to reduce excess sibilance in a minimally invasive way. In contrast to conventional de-essers, TB Sibalance uses so-called ‘matched filter’ technology to only process those frequencies that are causing excess sibilance, while leaving all other frequency components untouched. The result of TB Sibalance will therefore sound cleaner and more transparent than that obtained with other de-essers.

TB Sibalance for Windows and Mac (VST/AU) is available for purchase for 19.95 EUR.
