Universal Audio launches Vertigo Sound VSM-3 Mix Satellite, VSC-2 Compressor, Massenburg DesignWorks MDWEQ5 EQ

Universal Audio has announce the release of three new Direct Developer plug-ins — the Vertigo Sound VSM-3 Mix Satellite, Vertigo Sound VSC-2 Compressor, and the Massenburg DesignWorks MDWEQ5 plug-ins for the UAD Powered Plug-Ins platform and Apollo audio interfaces.

Vertigo Sound VSM-3 Mix Sattelite
Vertigo Sound VSM-3 Mix Satellite Plug-In

Developed by Brainworx, the Vertigo Sound VSM-3 Mix Satellite Plug-In is an obsessive emulation of the Vertigo Sound VSM-2, beloved by mixing and mastering engineers for its bounty of colorful saturation flavors. The VSM-3 offers innovative controls for expertly targeted harmonic generation, as well as plug-in-only features such as the THD Mixer’s Harmonic Balance control and the ability to run the unit’s two harmonic generators simultaneously — either in parallel or series — giving the user even more tweakability than the original hardware.

Vertigo Sound VSM-3 Mix Satellite features

  • Two sophisticated coloration generators recreated from the Vertigo VSM-2 hardware and authenticated by Vertigo Sound.
  • 2nd Harmonic FET Crusher for warm saturation or distortion.
  • 3rd Harmonic Zener Blender for bright, clear, saturation or distortion.
  • Crusher and Blender can each be applied to specific signal frequency ranges and then further filtered using the Shape control.
  • M/S decoding and encoding for each circuit allows processing of entire stereo signal, or Mid or Side stereo channels.
Vertigo Sound VSC-2 Compressor
Vertigo Sound VSC-2 Compressor Plug-In

The Vertigo VSC-2 Quad Discrete VCA Compressor was Vertigo Sound’s very first product, putting the German company on the map with its genius juxtaposition of vintage sonics and high-tech design. Developed by Brainworx, the Vertigo Sound VSC-2 Compressor Plug-In for UAD-2 and Apollo interfaces is an exhaustive emulation of this modern classic — right down to its four hand-built discrete VCAs — delivering legendary compression textures with a modern signal path and controls.

Vertigo Sound VSC-2 Compressor features

  • Faithful recreation of the Vertigo VSC-2’s all-discrete VCA compressor circuitry, authenticated by Vertigo Sound.
  • Provides the rich tonal characteristics of classic compressors with modern mastering-grade audio specifications.
  • Soft mode for a threshold-related ratio that automatically increases with higher input signal.
  • Brick mode to operate the VSC-2 as a limiter, effectively cutting off signal peaks.
Massenburg DesignWorks MDWEQ5
Massenburg DesignWorks MDWEQ5 EQ Plug-In

A unique, ultra-powerful equalizer, the Massenburg DesignWorks MDWEQ5 plug-in provides crystal clear processing at the highest resolutions. A go-to EQ for music, as well as game developers and engineers in film and television, the MDWEQ5 plug-in is accurate, precise, and ear-tuned by the man who invented the term “parametric EQ,” George Massenburg.

Massenburg DesignWorks MDWEQ5 EQ

  • Created by George Massenburg, the pioneer of parametric equalization.
  • IsoPeak® function for finding problem frequencies quickly and accurately.
  • Maximum bit-depth processing with zero coloration and distortion.
  • Includes two plug-ins; the 5-band MDWEQ5 EQ and 3-band MDWEQ3 EQ.

The plug-ins are available for purchase for $299 USD each.

Acon Digital releases Equalize effect plugin

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

Acon Digital has released Equalize, a parametric equalizer plug-in that combines unique features with excellent workflow and an intuitive user interface.

Acon Digital Equalize

Unlike existing equalizers, not only the frequency, gain and bandwidth, but also the filter slope can be adjusted freely for each frequency band. The filter slope can be set anywhere from 3 to ultra-sharp 120 dB per octave. Equalize operates as a zero latency plug-in when using the minimum phase mode or can preserve phase relationships in the linear phase mode. A novelty is the additional mixed phase mode that allows latency adjustments in the range 5 to 120 milliseconds while preserving the phase relationships as far as possible. That gives a unique control over potential pre-ringing which is a common problem with linear phase filtering. Latency values around 20 milliseconds ensure inaudible pre-ringing artifacts due to the temporal masking of the human hearing while preserving the time-alignment across the audible frequency range.

Great care has been taken to provide a user interface that is straightforward to use. Band parameters can be adjusted using handles directly in the graphical representation of the frequency response, including bandwidths and filter slopes. Flexible real-time spectrum analyzers give visual feedback of the processing. Frequency bands can individually be set up for full, mid, side, left or right channel processing and Equalize automatically routes the audio signal internally to ensure the best results and lowest possible latency.

Equalize features

  • Up to twelve independent bands.
  • Freely adjustable gain, frequency, bandwidth and filter slope.
  • Three different phase modes, including the novel mixed phase mode.
  • Choose channel mode for each band independently (mid, side, left, right or full processing).

Equalize for Windows and Mac is available for purchase for the introductory price of $79.90 USD until December 25th, 2014 (regular $99.90 USD).
