FabFilter releases updates for all plug-ins, new Pro-Q features

FabFilter

FabFilter has released updates for all plug-ins, adding great new features to the Pro-Q EQ plug-in and the Timeless 2 delay plug-in, next to general improvements and bug fixes.

New in FabFilter Pro-Q are an intelligent solo mode, a notch filter type and spectrum analyzer improvements, while FabFilter Timeless 2 has got a new wide interface layout option. Finally, all effect plug-ins now support the Pro Tools AudioSuite format, in addition to RTAS.

  • Changes in Pro-Q v1.1:
    • Added a notch filter type to cut very narrow bands in the frequency spectrum. Double-clicking in the bottom of the EQ display creates a notch band immediately.
    • Added an intelligent solo mode for EQ bands. Click and hold the solo button (in the parameter value display) to enter solo mode for the current EQ band. Now, you don’t hear the effect of the EQ band itself, but instead you will hear the part of the frequency spectrum that is being affected by that band. Of course, the frequency range depends on the frequency and Q settings, and is visualized in the display as well.
    • Improved the built-in spectrum analyzer with smoother curves, a combined Pre+Post mode and customizable resolution and speed settings, accessible via the Analyzer drop-down menu in the bottom bar of the plug-in.
    • Added a 3 dB display range, useful for mastering purposes.
    • Added a small output level and clipping indicator in the bottom bar.
    • Improved the EQ display’s rollover behavior: the parameter value display is now shown much earlier when you approach an EQ curve point, making it easier to view the band’s settings and use the new solo button.
    • Fixed possible audible “plops” when selecting a different filter shape in an EQ band.
    • Fixed bug when Shift-dragging multiple selected points: this could accidentally deselect some of the points.
  • Changes in Timeless 2 v2.10:
    • Added a new “wide” layout for the interface that eliminates scrolling in the component display in the top half of the plug-in. The resize button in the lower-right corner of the interface chooses between normal and wide layouts.
    • You can now change the default value of the Dry Enabled parameter, simply by clicking Options > Save As Default in the presets menu. This is useful for example if you always happen to use Timeless 2 as a send effect.
  • Other new features and bug fixes:
    • In addition to the RTAS format, all effect plug-ins are now also available in the AudioSuite format for Pro Tools.
    • All plug-ins are now Unicode-aware and correctly handle international characters on both Windows and Mac OS X, for example in preset folders and file names.
    • Improved the way parameter values with custom ranges and transforms are shown by Audio Unit hosts and Pro Tools (e.g. for automation purposes).
    • Added a Deauthorize option to the plug-in’s Help menu, which makes it easy to delete your license key from a computer if needed.
    • In Twin 2 and Timeless 2: fixed bug that could cause the XLFO to run out of sync after a while.
    • In Twin 2 and Timeless 2: fixed bug that caused the XLFO Phase Offset parameter to work incorrectly in combination with random steps. Also improved sonic behavior when dragging the phase offset across its “circular” boundary.
    • In Twin 2 and Timeless 2: Improved mouse wheel scrolling and editing behavior.
    • In Pro-C and Pro-L: It’s now possible to enter positive values in the parameter value display for knobs with a negative-only range (like Threshold or Output Level). So for example, typing “0.3″ will also result in “-0.3 dB”.
    • Fixed incorrect redrawing in the plug-in interface that could occur in some cases in Pro Tools on Mac, for example when selecting from the Pro Tools-provided presets menu in the plug-in header.
    • Fixed bug that caused the help file to open only in the first instance of the plug-in.

The updated plug-ins are fully compatible with previous versions, free for existing FabFilter customers, and now available on all formats and platforms.

FabFilter releases Pro-L, limiter plug-in

Related: , , , , , Posted in news on Oct 21, 2010 - comment 0 comments

FabFilter has announced the release of Pro-L, a top quality, feature-packed limiter plug-in suitable for both mastering and mixing.

FabFilter Pro-L

Pro-L delivers sophisticated limiting algorithms, highly accurate metering, linear-phase oversampling and dithering, but above all, the uncompromising sound quality and innovative interface design that you’ve come to expect from FabFilter.

FabFilter Pro-L offers four advanced limiting algorithms, all with their own distinct character. Some are designed to be as transparent as possible, while others may add a nice punch or flavor to your music.
Together with the adjustable look-ahead, attack, release and unique separate channel link settings for both transients and release, the limiter can be fine-tuned to achieve both maximum loudness and the highest possible transparency at the same time.

With its highly informative real-time display and excellent meters, the innovative and clutter-free interface makes working with FabFilter Pro-L a breeze. Different meter scales, including the three K-System scales (K-12, K-14 and K-20), will help you to get precise control over your levels. Of course, you can easily disable all metering if you want to judge the sound by ear only.

By enabling Pro-L’s accurate inter-sample peak detection, the output level meter will reconstruct the peak levels likely to occur after D/A conversion, helping you to choose an appropriate output level. In addition, the linear-phase oversampling feature minimizes possible aliasing and inter-sample peaks to achieve maximum loudness in the safest possible way. With excellent dithering and noise shaping added to the already impressive list of features, FabFilter Pro-L is the complete limiting solution for every mastering and mixing job.

Pro-L features

  • Great transparent sound combined with maximum loudness.
  • Four sophisticated, carefully tuned limiting algorithms, all with their own unique character.
  • Low CPU usage.
  • Highly accurate output and gain reduction metering, with optional inter-sample peak detection.
  • Various meter scale settings, including K-System support.
  • Unique, highly informative real-time level display, showing input, output, gain change and RMS levels over time.
  • Adjustable Look-ahead, Attack and Release settings to fine-tune the sound of the algorithms.
  • Separate, freely adjustable channel linking for both the transient and release stages.
  • Up to four times linear-phase oversampling to minimize aliasing and inter-sample peaks.
  • Professional dithering with three different noise shaping algorithms.
  • Easy to set up for common limiting situations with the included factory presets, conveniently divided into musical genres.
  • Stereo and mono versions available.
  • All the usual FabFilter quality 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.

FabFilter Pro-L is now available to purchase for PC and Mac (VST/AU/RTAS) for 169 EUR / $229 USD / £149 GBP. Bundles with FabFilter Pro-L and other FabFilter plug-ins are also available. Existing FabFilter customers can purchase Pro-L with great discounts by logging in to their online user account.

The Dirty House sound set by Thomas Koot contains more than hundred raw and heavy house-oriented presets, instantly injecting a dirty edge into every production.

This sound set will provide you with the sounds you’ll need to produce the hottest club tracks of today and tomorrow!

The Ambient sound set contains 130 beautiful ambient-oriented presets, programmed by rsmus7, the German sound designer and musician Stephan Muesch. Showing the rich potential of FabFilter Twin 2, many of the spacious and spherical sounds included use the synthesizer in new and until now unheard ways. This sound sets delivers rhythmic, cinematic and ambient sounds and creatively modulated patches that can be used in many different musical ways and projects. Almost every preset has 4 XY-controllers set up in a musical way, to make the best use of the modulation possibilities.

The Dirty House and Ambient sound sets for FabFilter Twin 2 are now available to purchase for EUR 19 / $24 USD / £17 GBP.

In addition, a Sound Set Bundle with all five sound sets (Rob Lee, Electro, Synth Classics, Dirty House and Ambient) is available for 59 EUR / $74 USD / £49 GBP.
