TB-Software updates Euphonia plugin to v1.2

TB-Software has released version 1.2 of Euphonia, an optimal audio spectrum balancing plug-in for the mastering stage.

TB-Software Euphonia

Euphonia compares the spectral fingerprint against build-in curves (Pop/Rock/Dance/Jazz/DubStep) and calculates filter settings so that the spectrum of the audio follows the selected average spectrum curves.

Euphonia is designed to be used during the music production process. Spectral adjustments are usually done right after the final mix, but before usage of any sounding equalizer, master compressors or limiters. Euphonia is also designed to be effective in restoration/remastering environments.

Changes in Euphonia v1.2 features

  • RTAS support added.
  • Registration Keys changed.
  • Windows Installer.

Euphonia for Windows (VST) is available for purchase for 79 EUR.

Shattered Glass Audio releases Ace free tube amp plugin

Related: , , , , , , Posted in news on Aug 26, 2014 - comment 0 comments

Shattered Glass Audio has announced Ace, a free tube amplifier effect plug-in for Windows and Mac.

Shattered Glass Audio Ace

Ace is a faithful digital emulation of a legendary 1950s, American, all tube, tweed, 5W amp. We have added to the model two of the most common amplifier mods: adjustment of the amount of feedback and addition of grid stopper resistors, both of which can be turned off for the original amp sound.

For added flexibility, speaker emulation can be switched out in case you want to use a different speaker emulator. Ace also features 2x, 4x, or 8x selectable oversampling.

Simple controls and a conservative CPU usage make ACE easy to use in live settings as well as for re-amping.

Ace features

  • Accurate modeling of the whole circuit to capture dynamic interactions between amp stages.
  • Authentic 12AX7 and 6V6GT vacuum tube models.
  • Models of the two most common amp mods.
  • Adjustable strength of the input signal with up to 12 dB boost.
  • Cabinet simulation that can be switched on or off.
  • Selectable 2x, 4x, or 8x oversampling.

The plug-in is available to download for Windows and Mac as freeware (VST/AU).

Zynaptiq releases UNCHIRP Codec Artifact Removal & Transient Retrieval

Related: , , , , , , , , Posted in news on Aug 25, 2014 - comment 0 comments

Zynaptiq has announced the release of UNCHIRP, a codec artifact removal and transient retrieval effect plug-in for Windows and Mac.

Zynaptiq UNCHIRP

UNCHIRP is a plug-in for removing the most obnoxious artifacts associated with lossy audio encoding and other FFT based processes, such as spectral de-noising.

Reduce musical noise, suppress high frequency chirping (also known as underwater sound, warbling or the tweeties), fix transient smearing, and restore lost high frequencies – UNCHIRP does it all in one go.

If you need to salvage poorly encoded music, speech that has gone through a low bit rate uplink, material that has been de-noised too strongly, or footage recorded with consumer mobile devices – or if you simply want to add contour and vibrance to already great sounding recordings – UNCHIRP is your (only) friend.

UNCHIRP features

  • Suppression of high frequency “chirping” artifacts.
  • Reduction of “musical noise” artifacts.
  • Transient Synthesis to augment or replace smeared, over-limited or otherwise compromised transients.
  • Psycho-Acoustically optimized Treble Boost circuit with Enhance and Excite modes.
  • Break-Point Curve Editor based frequency-dependent processing.
  • Side-only algorithm mode for working with joint-stereo encoded material.
  • HD algorithm mode for increased quality processing with higher CPU load (off-line processing recommended).
  • SYNC parameter allows processing to be synchronized to signal transients for increasing clarity.
  • Output limiter for unsupervised use in batch processing applications.
  • Highly time-efficient workflow and UI.

UNCHIRP for Windows and Mac (VST/AU/RTAS/AAX/AudioSuite) is available for purchase for $399 USD / 369 EUR (incl. VAT in EU).

u-he announces Satin v1.2 micro fix & latest builds of plugins

Related: , , , , , , Posted in news on Aug 25, 2014 - comment 0 comments

u-he has announced the release of build 2577 of Satin version 1.2, an update to the tape simulation & tape delay effect plug-in for Windows and Mac.

u-he Satin

A small but pesky feedback bug made itself known after we released Satin 1.2 (build 2570) last week, requiring some attention.

A micro-fix that corrects the problem is now available. The version number will remain at 1.2.0, but the build number is updated to 2577. You can find the build number along the top of the interface next to the Satin logo.

The latest version of Satin is available for download from the u-he website.

u-he plugins updated

u-he has also announced updates for its other plug-ins.

The ongoing work of improving and updating the u-he product line continues, and this time we have a wheelbarrow full of updates.

There are new builds for 11 products: ACE, Bazille, Diva, Filterscape, MFM2, Podolski, TripleCheese, Uhbik, Zebra, The Dark Zebra and ZebraCM… whew! As you can imagine, the changelog for such an update is immense, so we’ll just mention the most noteworthy fixes here:

  • fixed crash when changing presets at high buffer sizes
  • resolved Bazille crash related to FX
  • fixed a few note hangers
  • fixed a few MIDI issues
  • fixed issues where UI was slow

We have tested these builds extensively and believe they are very stable and we encourage you to update – especially if you experienced problems with previous builds – but please remember they are still considered “beta”.

The builds are available to download from the u-he forum at KVR Audio.
