FabFilter releases bug-fix update + Holiday Sale 25% off

FabFilter Holiday Sale

FabFilter has released minor updates for all plug-ins, which solve various small issues that have surfaced after the last general update release in November.

In addition, FabFilter announces a holiday bundle sale running until January 1, offering 25% discount on all plug-in bundles in the online FabFilter shop.

Changes in FabFilter plugins

  • Fixed incorrect MIDI message handling in the AAX plug-ins on Mac OS X: this could cause unexpected parameter changes when starting/stopping playback in Pro Tools.
  • In FabFilter Pro-Q, fixed a bug that caused the Auto-Adjust Display Range feature not to work when dragging curves with the High Cut or Low Cut filter type.
  • Added a workaround in the Mac OS X VST plug-ins to ensure resizing works correctly in Ableton Live 8.
  • Added a workaround in the VST 2 plug-ins to ensure preset changes and parameter changes are correctly saved in Maschine by Native Instruments.
  • Fixed possible crash when removing the VST 2 or VST 3 plug-ins on Mac OS X while the interface is open, for example in Studio One.
  • Fixed white flash and some other graphical glitches when resizing the plug-in interfaces on Mac OS X (all plug-in formats).
  • Fixed bug that could cause the interfaces not to appear at all in some hosts on Mac OS X, for example Triumph.
  • Minor improvements and bug fixes on both Windows and Mac OS X.

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 at www.fabfilter.com/download.

FabFilter updates all plug-ins with graphics acceleration and more

FabFilter

FabFilter has updated all FabFilter plug-ins to add GPU-powered graphics acceleration.

In addition, FabFilter Twin 2, Timeless 2 and Volcano 2 now feature the collapsible modulation section that was first introduced in FabFilter Saturn. All plug-ins have also received bug fixes and various other improvements.

Changes in FabFilter plugins

  • All plug-ins now contain the GPU-powered graphics acceleration introduced in FabFilter Pro-DS, ensuring ultra-smooth animation while leaving the main CPU free to do audio processing.
  • FabFilter Twin 2, Timeless 2 and Volcano 2 have a new Modulation button to easily show and hide the modulation section. By default, the modulation section is hidden to make the plug-in less intimidating at first, but you can easily look ‘under the hood’ when you want to tweak a preset or design your own.
  • FabFilter Twin 2 displays a new keyboard section in the interface when the modulation section is hidden. The component display at the top of the interface contains a new Main EG component button, letting you easily tweak EG parameters when browsing presets.
  • When multiple bands are selected in FabFilter Pro-Q, the Frequency, Gain and Q knobs will now let you change parameters of the selected bands while preserving their relative differences. Double-clicking a knob still lets you set all bands to the same value.
  • Updated all VST 3 plug-ins to support new features in VST 3.5, such as a host-provided right-click menu for each parameter in the interface. Steinberg’s CMC-AI controller is now also supported.
  • Added mouse wheel support to buttons with pop-up menus, such as the distortion style button in FabFilter Saturn.
  • Added Options > Open Other Preset option to the presets menu, making it easy to open a preset that’s not in the regular presets folder.
  • FabFilter Twin 2 and Timeless 2 now remember which section in the component display is expanded in Wide mode.
  • Fixed compatibility issues with Adobe Premiere on Windows and OS X.
  • Fixed a bug in the mono AudioSuite plug-ins that caused the Whole File option at the bottom to be disabled.
  • The Mac OS X version now requires OS X 10.5 and an Intel processor. Previous versions are still available for download if you need OS X 10.4 or PowerPC support.

The updates are free for existing FabFilter customers. Updates and 30-day trial versions are available for download now at www.fabfilter.com/download.

FabFilter releases Pro-DS — Intelligent de-esser plug-in

Related: , , , , , , , Posted in news on Oct 05, 2012 - comment 0 comments
FabFilter Pro-DS

FabFilter has announced the release of its Pro-DS de-esser effect plug-in for Windows and Mac.

Featuring ingenious vocal sibilance detection, powerful processing options and insightful metering, truly transparent de-essing becomes effortless with FabFilter Pro-DS.

The unique newly developed Single Vocal algorithm in Pro-DS has an uncanny ability to separate sibilance from non-sibilance in individual vocal recordings. It almost always works right away without the need for complex manual tuning, making the de-esser very easy to set up. Alternatively, the classic Allround detection implements a custom side-chain filter path, tuned to perfection for de-essing full mixes or high-frequency limiting of any material.

The intuitive interface in FabFilter Pro-DS makes it easy to find the right settings quickly with great visual feedback. A large real-time level display shows a scrolling input waveform and highlights the parts affected by the de-essing algorithm, showing you exactly how much processing is going on. Finding the right Threshold setting becomes a trivial task with the circular side-chain input meter around the Threshold knob. In addition, the side-chain filter slider displays a real-time spectrum analyzer, enabling you to easily zoom in on problem frequencies. Advanced GPU-powered graphics acceleration ensures seamless animation and also keeps the main CPU free to do audio processing.

To fine-tune the sound, FabFilter Pro-DS offers optional look-ahead (up to 15 milliseconds) and adjustable stereo linking. In addition to general wide-band processing, linear-phase split-band processing is also available. Together with optional mid/side processing (affecting only the mono or stereo content) and up to four times linear-phase oversampling, Pro-DS is capable of highly transparent de-essing in the most demanding situations. All this power combined with its innovative, easy-to-use interface makes Pro-DS the perfect de-essing solution for any mixing and mastering job.

FabFilter Pro-DS is a highly intelligent and transparent de-essing plug-in, perfect for processing single vocal tracks as well as entire mixes.

FabFilter releases Saturn multi-band distortion & saturation effect

FabFilter has announced the release of Saturn, a multi-band distortion and saturation effect plug-in for Windows and Mac.

A great variety of distortion styles from subtle tape simulation to full-on multi-band guitar amp mayhem, combined with endless modulation options and a streamlined, uncluttered interface promise FabFilter Saturn a place among the stars.

FabFilter Saturn

FabFilter Saturn offers a wide range of high-quality distortion models from subtle, clean and warm tube or tape saturation to fully overdriven vintage guitar amp simulation. Additional creative distortion styles let you time-smear, stretch, crush, rectify and lip your sounds in inspiring and unexpected ways. Create up to six bands with individual feedback, compression/expansion and tone controls to give each part of the spectrum the warmth and color it needs.

To bring even more life and depth to your sound, engage FabFilter Saturn’s extensive modulation section. By applying subtle modulation to crossover frequencies, dynamics, band levels or tone controls, you can add unique definition and flavor. With practically unlimited modulation sources from XY controllers and programmable step sequencers to any type of MIDI data, the creative possibilities are endless.

The clever user interface makes FabFilter Saturn look deceptively simple, showing only the controls that you are actually using at the moment. The entire modulation section is hidden by default, resulting in a friendly interface that invites you to explore the essential controls and the included factory presets. When you need to look “under the hood”, a single click expands the modulation section, letting you easily add modulation sources and create modulation connections via drag-and-drop. This combination of features makes FabFilter Saturn powerful and flexible, yet ultimately accessible for everyday use.

Saturn features

  • Sixteen different distortion styles, from subtle tube and tape saturation to heavily overdriven guitar amp models, time-smearing and bit crushing.
  • Multi-band processing (up to six bands).
  • Per-band drive, mix, feedback, dynamics, tone and level controls.
  • Optional HQ mode (8x oversampling).
  • Mid/side processing.
  • Interactive multi-band display.
  • Easy-to-use interface with FabFilter’s innovative what-you-use-is-what-you-see concept.
  • Normal and wide interface layouts, with an option to show or hide the modulation section at the bottom.
  • Endless modulation options, with all the 16-step XLFOs, XY controllers, envelope generators, envelope followers and MIDI sources you will ever need.
  • Easy drag-and-drop modulation with 50-slot modulation matrix.
  • Modulation source signal visualization.
  • Over 150 factory presets included.
  • Stereo and mono plug-ins available.
  • All the usual FabFilter features you’ve come to expect: 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, SSE optimization, and more.

FabFilter Saturn for Windows and Mac (VST/AU/RTAS/AAX/AudioSuite) is now available to purchase for 129 EUR / $174 USD / £114 GBP. Bundles with FabFilter Saturn and other FabFilter plug-ins are also available. Existing FabFilter customers can purchase Saturn with great discounts by logging in to their online user account.
