ToneBoosters releases TB Evoke dynamics plugin

ToneBoosters has launched TB Evoke, a dynamics processor effect plug-in for Windows and Mac.

ToneBoosters TB Evoke

TB Evoke consists of an integrated DC/rumble filter, a smart gate, a transparent compressor, a multi-band excess sibilance processor, and an exciter in one convenient plugin.

The main benefits of integrating these processes into one plugin are a very low CPU load, low latency, and better integration and interdependencies of these effects compared to a cascade of individual plugins.

TB Evoke was designed to operate on individual tracks as well as busses, and can handle a wide range of content.

The plug-in is available for Windows and Mac (VST/AU), priced at 19.95 EUR.

Computer Music 197 freebie: SKnote Snap transient exciter

SKnote Snap

Computer Music has announced that its latest magazine includes a free copy of SKnote Snap, a transient exciter plug-in for Windows and Mac.

Brighten or dull the attack and sustain of your sounds with Snap, a unique transient exciter plugin created exclusively for CM by software perfectionists SKnote. Their other analogue-flavoured creations include the console-emulating Stripbus, tape saturator Roundtone, and the mighty MCAudioLab EQ1passive equaliser.

Snap detects your incoming transients (or attack) and allows you to apply two intelligently-linked filters to your signal. You can add brightness to a snare or hi-hat’s crack, tame a drum group’s spikiness, or soften a piano’s sustain without blunting its attack.

SKnote Snap features

  • ‘Hit’ and ‘Body’ knobs to treat attack and/or sustain for precise dynamic sculpting.
  • Brighten or dull transients independently of the signal’s sustain.
  • Great for shaping drums, percussion, guitars, groups or mixes.
  • Transient metering and value readouts.
  • Clear, compact interface.
  • 32-/64-bit PC VST.
  • 32-/64-bit Mac AU/VST.

The plugin is included with Computer Music 197 (and onwards).

Nomad Factory releases Cosmos harmonic exciter & sub generator plugin

Nomad Factory Cosmos

Nomad Factory has announced the release of Cosmos, an effect plug-in for sonic enhancement and low-end fattening of audio.

This audio sweetening plug-in faithfully emulates legendary audio hardware that is used in professional studios worldwide. COSMOS can be used in virtually any application:

  • Embellish a recording or enhance single instrument
  • Harmonically excite an entire mix
  • Enhance any TV/Film Post-Production project
  • Improve the sound of a Broadcast/Podcast

Naturally, COSMOS excels in the recording studio whether you need lead vocals to pop out more in a mix or boost the low end of a bass guitar. The plug-in is especially useful when placed on the mix bus to enhance an entire mix. Engineers have been using comparable hardware for decades and now COSMOS delivers the same sonic signature that can be found on countless hit records and award-winning productions.

COSMOS is designed to improve clarity and punch without increasing gain, which results in a more balanced sound. The plug-in uses harmonic enhancement instead of traditional EQ boosting to bring out desirable frequencies in your audio material. COSMOS works great to improve the sound quality of any audio source, including compressed mp3 files, podcasts and voice-over work.

COSMOS also features a tunable synth sub-generator that can give your audio a huge boost in the low frequency department. For years, audiophiles have used this secret technique to fatten bass parts, kick drums and give mixes a thunderous bottom end. COSMOS’ built-in limiter and imaging add an extra dimension of control and stereo enhancement.

Cosmos for Windows and Mac (VST/AU/RTAS/AAX) is available to purchase for MSRP $149 USD. The plug-in is also available from DontCrack for the introductory price $69 USD until July 7th, 2013.
