Inspired by British classics such as Vox and Marshall — and lesser-known gems from Watkins and Selmer — the Chandler Limited GAV19T Amplifier plug-in offers features not found on the original hardware, such as an FX Rack with an onboard noise gate, host-syncable lo-fi delay, Power Soak, and pre/post switchable EQ filter controls.

Chandler Limited GAV19T features

  • Perfect emulation of the original dual EL84-powered Chandler Limited GAV19T circuit.
  • Fine-tune sounds with an onboard FX Rack that includes a noise gate, EQ filter controls, and host-syncable lo-fi delay.

  • Adds saturation and distortion to targeted frequency bands.
  • Increases the perceived volume of mixes without clipping.

Designed by mastering engineer Gebre Waddell of Stonebridge Mastering, the bx_refinement plug-in is based on a combination of time-tested approaches, modern techniques, and the latest science on the sensitivity of the human ear.

  • Softens high-frequency harshness in mixes and masters.
  • Injects saturation and presence to subtly enhance tracks.

FabFilter 10th Anniversary Sale – 40% off all plugins

FabFilter has announced a limited time sale in celebration of its 10th anniversary, offering 40% off its plug-ins and bundles.

The company is proud to toast this occasion by announcing a generous ten-day sale, with a discount of 40% off all bundles and plug-ins, from April 14 to 24. In addition, FabFilter will make a charitable donation to Stichting MEMO, a local organization bringing children in their early years in contact with young professional musicians and their passion for making music.

Floris Klinkert and Frederik Slijkerman

Ten years ago, FabFilter released its first plug-in, FabFilter One, a basic but powerful synthesizer, promising exceptional sound quality and an eye for detail in both audio processing and design. That promise still holds true today, and the dedication to superb signal processing and well-designed, modern user interfaces and workflow remains undiminished.

FabFilter One and its Volcano followup ultimately led to the Creative plug-in range, with FabFilter Saturn being the latest addition. Renowned for their unique drag-and-drop modulation system and smart interface design showing only the components that are actually being used, all Creative plug-ins positively succeed in balancing a huge range of inspiring possibilities with enviable ease of use.

With the release of the high-quality compressor plug-in Pro-C in 2007, FabFilter laid the foundations for the ongoing Pro series, highly regarded for their high-quality transparent sound, beautiful interfaces, and well-thought-through workflow. Co-founder Frederik Slijkerman: “FabFilter Pro-Q, our EQ plug-in, is one of our absolute bestsellers and still one of the best examples of what FabFilter is all about: beautiful sound, fantastic workflow! We were really able to realize our vision of power converging with simplicity and elegance.”

Coming full circle, fellow FabFilter co-founder Floris Klinkert claims, “FabFilter Pro-MB is really a result of the 10 years we’ve now been working on audio plug-ins. It combines advanced dynamics algorithms with a forward-thinking, modern interface, rethinking the concept of multi-band processing.”

The sale ends April 24th, 2014.
