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.

Newpool Music launches Hiding Jekyll Lable Tennis Remix Contest

Hiding Jekyll Lable Tennis Remix Contest

Newpool Music has announced its Lable Tennis Remix Contest, a chance to remix a track by Hiding Jekyll and win prizes from Ohmforce, Sonic Charge, Fabfilter and XILS-Lab.

Hiding Jekyll’s open minded journey through different electronic styles along with his continuous testing of various live setups finally matured to become a real trademark sound. His aspiration to organize the material in a way that makes it possible to constantly manipulate his tracks, thus comprising both a unique studio and live performance which sometimes can’t be repeated another time, is his strife for authenticity. This is the core of Hiding Jekyll, a name which is synonymous with his activities as a producer and live unit.

With his single Lable Tennis, out in spring 2014, we want to give you the opportunity to create a remix of this minimalistic beauty. You’ll be able to win some valuable prizes from Sonic Charge, Ohm Force, Fabfilter and XILS-Lab. Just be sure to read the instructions and follow our terms and conditions.

FabFilter releases FabFilter Pro-MB multiband dynamics plug-in

FabFilter has announced the availability of FabFilter Pro-MB, a brand-new multiband compression/expansion plug-in introducing unique workflow and signal processing advancements.

Featuring free placement of bands anywhere in the spectrum and a newly developed Dynamic Phase processing mode, FabFilter Pro-MB stands out from the plug-in crowd by combining exceptional sound quality with a new way of thinking about multiband dynamics.

FabFilter Pro-MB

A different approach
When working with multiband dynamics, you often focus on one or two specific frequency areas. Instead of conventionally splitting the entire spectrum with crossovers, FabFilter Pro-MB enables you to directly target these areas, simply by creating bands at any frequency range you’re interested in. Think bands, not crossovers! The interface clearly shows that the rest of the spectrum stays untouched. When desired, bands can easily be snapped together to form a traditional crossover system.

Rethinking multiband processing
To achieve truly transparent multi-band processing, FabFilter Pro-MB features an entirely new processing mode: Dynamic Phase. Exclusively developed for Pro-MB, it closely matches the frequency response of conventional multiband processing and results in a flat phase response when no gain changes are applied, but without introducing latency and pre-ringing effects (like Linear Phase processing), or static phase distortion (like Minimum Phase processing). Minor, typically inaudible phase changes are introduced only when the gain of a band is modified. Of course, FabFilter Pro-MB also offers outstanding Linear Phase and conventional Minimum Phase processing modes.

Intelligent, powerful and versatile
Up to six bands can be created, each offering a choice of downward or upward compression or expansion, together with a full set of dynamics controls, from range, ratio and knee control to lookahead and variable stereo linking. Intelligent, highly frequency- and program-dependent algorithms ensure excellent results with all kinds of program material. In Expert mode, more advanced features become available: mid- or side-only processing, external side chain triggering, including the option to trigger on a different, freely configurable frequency range.

Designed for you
Unlike traditional multiband compressors, which can be laborious to set up and control, FabFilter Pro-MB’s large interface is streamlined and uncluttered. Creating, snapping and selecting bands is a breeze, as is adjusting and tweaking multiple selected bands. At any time, the most important settings for all bands are visible at a glance, together with a real-time dynamic gain change curve and spectrum analyzer. Intelligent audio processing combined with optimal interface workflow makes FabFilter Pro-MB an absolute timesaver and a joy to use.

FabFilter Pro-MB features

  • Up to six processing bands, freely placeable anywhere in the spectrum.
  • Bands can be easily snapped together to form a conventional crossover system.
  • Unique Dynamic Phase processing mode featuring zero latency, no static phase changes and no preringing artifacts.
  • Excellent Linear Phase processing mode, eliminating audible artifacts when quickly changing crossover frequencies.
  • Minimum Phase processing mode.
  • Handles any form of dynamics processing, from highly transparent compression, limiting and expansion to pumping upward compression and punchy gating.
  • Fully customizable per band: threshold, range, attack, release, output gain, ratio, variable knee, lookahead (up to 20 ms), variable stereo linking, mid- or side-only processing, external side chain input, triggering on a separate frequency range.
  • Steepness of each crossover slope can be freely adjusted between 6 dB/oct and 48 dB/oct.
  • Intelligent, highly program- and frequency-dependent attack and release curves.
  • Unique interactive multiband display, designed for an optimal workflow.

  • GPU-powered graphics acceleration.
  • Double-click text entry of parameter values.
  • Stereo and mono plug-ins available.
  • Supports common Pro Tools hardware control surfaces, such as Avid ICON D-Control and D-Command.
  • All the usual features you’ve come to expect from FabFilter: perfectly fine-tuned knobs and controllers, interactive MIDI Learn, undo/redo and A/B switch, Smart Parameter Interpolation for smooth parameter transitions, an extensive help file with interactive help hints, sample-accurate automation, advanced optimization, and more.

FabFilter has also announced bug-fix updates for all its plug-ins.

We have just released minor updates for all plug-ins, which solve a couple of small issues that have surfaced after the last update release in June.

Changes in FabFilter plug-ins

  • Fixed a bug that could cause typed parameter values to be rounded incorrectly, e.g. when double-clicking to enter a frequency value in FabFilter Pro-Q.
  • Fixed a bug in all AAX plug-ins: after deactivating a bypassed plug-in in Pro Tools, the state of the bypass parameter would not be restored correctly on reactivation.
  • Fixed a bug in the AAX version of FabFilter Twin 2 that caused the external side chain input not to work in Pro Tools.

The updates are fully compatible with previous versions, and free for existing FabFilter customers.

FabFilter AAX 64-nit

FabFilter has announced that it has updated all plug-ins to add 64-bit AAX support, enabling all FabFilter users to start working with Pro Tools 11 immediately after its release.

The update also includes various bug fixes and small improvements that benefit all plug-in formats.

Changes in FabFilter plug-ins

  • All plug-ins are now available as 64-bit AAX plug-ins for Pro Tools 11. The 32-bit AAX plug-ins have also been updated to the latest AAX v2 format and require Pro Tools 10.3.5 or later. RTAS plug-ins for earlier versions of Pro Tools are of course also included.
  • Changing parameters via the mouse wheel will now correctly record automation and generate proper undo states. In addition, you can now also control switches with the mouse wheel.
  • In the presets menu, changed the Options > View Program/Bank Numbers command to Enable MIDI Program Changes, which now actually enables/disables MIDI program changes as well as showing the program/band number for presets. This ensures that the plug-in only responds to MIDI program changes when this is desired.
  • Fixed a bug in FabFilter Pro-Q that could cause mouse wheel changes for multiple selected bands to affect one band only.
  • Fixed a bug in the VST3 plug-ins with a side chain that caused sidechain audition not to work if the main input was silent.
  • In FabFilter Twin 2, changed displayed delay sync parameter values in the interface to correctly describe the sync duration.
  • Fixed a crash in FabFilter Timeless 2 that could occur when clicking the Dry Enabled button or Dry Knob after having resized the interface.
  • Fixed a crash in FabFilter Twin 2 that could occur when dragging a modulation source over the Main EG component button.
  • In FabFilter Saturn, fixed a bug in the display that could cause the level sliders to be at the wrong position after opening a saved project in Wavelab 7.
  • Fixed a bug that could prevent sample-accurate processing of recorded MIDI control change messages.
  • Fixed a bug on OS X that could cause help hints to pop up even if the mouse cursor was outside the plug-in interface.
  • Fixed a bug on Windows that could cause a system sound to be played when pressing Enter after typing a parameter value directly.
  • Various small bug fixes and improvements.

The updated plug-ins are fully compatible with previous versions, and free for existing FabFilter customers. The latest versions and 30-day trials are available for download now.
