FXpansion releases DCAM ChanComp Reason Rack Extension

FXpansion has announced the release of its DCAM ChanComp Rack Extension for Propellerhead Reason, a circuit-modelled channel compressor based on a legendary FET-based limiting amplifier design.

FXpansion DCAM ChanComp
DCAM ChanComp is based on a classic limiting amplifier design commonly used as a channel or track compressor.

DCAM ChanComp features a very fast attack response and is usually intended to be applied to individual elements of many kinds, especially drums, bass and vocals.

DCAM ChanComp provides the same simple, effective controls and compression ratios as the revered original studio classic, including the infamous ‘all-buttons’ mode. It also allows you to dial between multiple models of different hardware revisions with the continuous Bias control for a variety of compression flavours.

Other additions include a wet/dry mix control for instant parallel compression and a CV output so you can use DCAM ChanComp’s gain reduction circuit as an envelope follower to modulate other devices within your Reason project.

DCAM ChanComp is available as a download-only product from the Propellerhead Online Shop, priced at $29 USD / €25 EUR inc. VAT where applicable.

Pure Analyzer can also utilize the Flux SampleGrabber plug-in to support direct signal acquisition across an Ethernet network from VENUE system monitor and mix busses.

Cakewalk Softube Mix Bundle

Cakewalk has announced availability of the critically acclaimed Softube Mix Bundle in SONAR X1 Producer Expanded module format.

The Softube Mix Bundle is a collection of five essential tools that give you full control over the key elements of building any mix—compression, equalization, and reverb. Now SONAR X1 Producer Expanded users can add these expertly crafted plug-ins to their arsenal of ProChannel modules.

The Softube Mix Bundle includes both ProChannel Modules for use in 32-bit & 64-bit versions of SONAR X1 Producer Expanded and VST format for use in SONAR X1 Producer, Studio, and Essential as well, as with other VST host applications.

Softube Mix Bundle features

  • TSAR-1R Reverb is based on a powerful, proprietary modern reverb algorithm. It is a vibrant, natural sounding reverb fashioned with an exceptionally accessible interface—three knobs give you fast, immediate control over a wide range of ambient spaces.
  • Passive Equalizer is based on a famous German 60s era, three-band passive console equalizer that features wide bandwidth and unsurpassed clear and open sound.
  • Active Equalizer is modern active design based on Swiss hardware from the 70s. Three bands of EQ, each with selectable gain, frequency, and bandwidth, plus 18dB/Oct high and low cut filters, providing tight and focused sound.
  • Focusing Equalizer employs Softube’s untraditional take on equalizers, with the low, mid, and high bands moving automatically and musically in relation to the high and low cut filters. Also includes filters from the Passive and Active Equalizers, all with one-knob saturation control.
  • FET Compressor is a fresh spin on a classic, complete with parallel compression, detector filters, look-ahead function, and external sidechain.

For a Limited time through January 31, 2012, all Cakewalk product customers (*SONAR X1 Producer Expanded necessary for use of ProChannel Module versions), can save 40% off the regular price and download the Softube Mix bundle for $179/€149/£125 (vat inclusive) from the Cakewalk store.

IK Multimedia releases Black 76 and White 2A, new mixing legends as add-ons to T-RackS

IK Multimedia has announced the release of two new T-RackS mixing plug-ins modeled on two of of the world’s most renowned analog compressors: the Black 76 Limiting Amplifier and the White 2A Leveling Amplifier.

These prestigious effects are available as single plug-ins for the most popular DAWs or can be integrated in the new T-RackS suite of mixing and mastering effects now updated with 64-bit compatibility both in standalone and plug-in mode.

IK Multimedia T-RackS Black 76
IK Multimedia T-RackS Black 76

The Black 76 Limiting Amplifier is modeled after what is probably the most used, most known, most wanted, and most universally recognized compressor / limiter in the audio industry. There are probably no professionally created records without tracks using this unit. It’s a true legend and a piece of history. The engineers that made this FET based compressor reached a level of cleverness and magic that only true visionary geniuses can achieve. While there are many revisions of this hardware, we modeled the LN version, revision E, because it’s the one that has the most sonically recognized and wanted character thanks to its input transformer and class A output stage.

This compressor can be used on literally everything: drums, drum sub-mixes, vocals, bass, guitars, piano, choirs, brass, strings, etc. It adds its sonic footprint to the sound that for many reasons simply makes music sound better. Vocals, for example, will gain presence, consistency, clarity and punch in a way simply not obtainable with other units. Drums will gain power and density with total control over the level of “snap”, and guitars will get a magic midrange zone that makes them truly sing. The Black 76 is a must for mixing, but thanks to the perfectly stereo linked version we provide with MS option, it can also be effectively used for mastering if used with care!

IK Multimedia T-RackS White 2A
IK Multimedia T-RackS White 2A

The White 2A Leveling Amplifier is based on a legendary vintage unit that is entirely tube-based. It’s a totally different device in terms of construction where all the compression magic happens inside an optically coupled element formed by a fluorescent panel and some photocells: the famed T4A element. There is no electronic circuitry involved with the compression itself. It’s just a tube amp with photo-resistors, lighted by a fluorescent panel driven by the output signal. At the time of this invention, there were not many ways of making an audio compressor: only variable-mu and optical. Optical was the simplest one, and if proper elements for both the light emitting panel and the photocells were matched, magic happened.

Originally intended for use in broadcasting, it immediately became a truly signature unit for music recording and mixing. It’s a must-have for both tracking and mixing vocals, but it’s also tremendously effective on electric bass, upright bass, piano, winds and many other tracks where you need a gentle compression with great warmth and consistency. This is one of the few units in the audio industry that nobody will allow to be substituted for anything else.

Both the Black 76 and the White 2A are available as single T-RackS mixing plug-ins for all popular DAW platforms in RTAS, AU and VST formats, priced at $99.99 USD / 74.99 EUR each (excl. tax).

IK Multimedia has also updated T-RackS and all its effect processors to version 3.5 – now supporting all 64-bit DAWs – and the update is available a free download to all existing T-RackS Deluxe, Standard, shell and singles users.
