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.

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.

123creative releases Multiband NoiseGate NX3

123creative Multiband NoiseGate NX3

123creative has launched Multiband NoiseGate NX3, a multi-band noise gate effect plug-in for Windows.

Noise gate is processor that „mute“ signal that is quieter than threshold level and vice versa pass signal that is louder than threshold level. This is mostly used during recording of live drums on more microphones, so if you are recording hi-hats microphone is also recording kick drum but at much lower level. You want to remove quite sound of bass drum from hi-hat channel – you use noise gate. Noise gate is useful also for removing low analog noise, low room reverb or some disturbing noises/speech in background of record. Next example from real use: you are recording guitar and want to use digital simulation of pedals and combo, but you record it with very low noise level for example -80db, later this low level noise is multiplied by distortion/fuzz pedal simulation to level -40db and more, so you need to remove this noise: it is suggested to use noisegate at input to remove very low noise -80db.

Often you don’t want to mute full frequency spectrum, but you want to set different threshold level of other frequency ranges – for example you want to mute just quite subbass under 50db.

For these purposes you will need Multi band noise gate.

Multiband noise gate can be used also for special creative effects, try it on any drum loops or if you are slicing melodic loops (with Slicer in FL studio for example) for creating glitch music styles, try to use multi band noise gate to get much more natural sound and effect of more glued slices together. Possibilities are endless…from technical things to creative freedom.

The plugin is available for the introductory price of 13.23 EUR (regular 18.90 EUR).

Kuassa releases EVE-AT1 & EVE-AT4 Rack Extensions for Reason

Related: , , , , , Posted in news on Apr 11, 2014 - comment 0 comments

Kuassa has announced the release of EVE-AT1 and EVE-AT4 classic british equalizers, two new Rack Extension plug-ins for Propellerhead Reason 6.5 and later.

Offered at $39 $29 (Anniversary Sale, 25% discount still applies until April 21st) each, both AT1 and AT4 were inspired by the design of the legendary Neve* 1081 and 1084 that are known for their clear, smooth, and very musical characteristics.

We are thrilled by the sound and present these EQs as a modern tribute, designed with simplicity and clarity in mind for immediate productivity. Although they share certain tonal characteristics, the EVE-AT1 and EVE-AT4 reveal their differences in the details.

Kuassa EVE-AT1 and EVE-AT4

EVE-AT1/AT4 features

  • EVE-AT1: is a 4-band parametric equalizer with an additional high-pass and low-pass filter. Inspired by the EQ section of a renowned British Classic –the Neve* 1081 –this equalizer delivers a clear, smooth, and musical sound to shape your tracks. The EVE-AT1 posseses an additional parametric band with expanded Q bandwidth selection in the low-mid and high-mid frequency ranges as compared to the EVE-AT4. In addition, the AT1 impelements a different high-pass and low-pass filter, giving the AT1 a slightly more conventional frequency response in these areas. These characteristics mean the EVE-AT1 is suitable for a broad range of musical applications, offering flexibility, versatility and all-round utility.
  • EVE-AT4: EVE-AT4 is a 3-band equalizer with an additional high-pass and low-pass filter. Designed as a tribute to the EQ section of the Neve* 1084, which was created as the successor to the legendary Neve* 1073. Although the EVE-AT4 possesses fewer bands, a smaller frequency selection palette, and less Q bandwidth selection options as compared to the EVE-AT1, its strength lies in its unique filter implementation, producing an idiosyncratic frequency response not present on the EVE-AT1. The result is a particular tonal character; the sound and tonal shape of its original incarnation is a hallmark of many classic recordings from the 70s.

The EVE-AT series Rack Extensions are available from the Propellerhead shop.

TC Electronic intros LM1n, LM2n & LM6n loudness meter plug-ins

TC Electronic LM6n

TC Electronic has announced LM1n, LM2n and LM6n, three new loudness meter plug-ins for audio and video editing systems.

The new LM2n and LM6n meters offer a wealth of new features plus the acclaimed and easy to use Radar View. The LM1n plug-in is a brand new addition to a growing range and provides the all-important basics in loudness metering while only creating a small footprint on the screen. The new LM2n and LM6n native plug-ins replace the previous LM2 and LM6 plug-ins.

All of these new loudness meters support the major plug-in formats, including AAX (Pro Tools 10 and 11), VST (Nuendo, Cubase, Audition, Premiere, etc.) and Audio Units (Final Cut Pro, Logic Pro, etc.) and even offers faster than real time off-line measuring in Pro Tools.

As would be expected from TC Electronic, being heavily involved in research studies on loudness as well as the definition of international loudness standards, LM1n, LM2n and LM6n comply with all major broadcast standards, including BS.1770, A/85, R128, TR-B32 and OP-59, and will remain compliant via updates whenever new revisions of these standards are released.

The plug-ins will be available late April, 2014.

LM1n will cost $79 USD, LM2n is $149 USD, and LM6n is $449 USD. Introductory prices will be available for LM1n ($49 USD) and LM2n ($99 USD) until May 31st, 2014. Various upgrades from earlier TC Electronic loudness meter plug-ins will also be available.
