Matthieu Brucher ATKLimiter

I’m happy to announce the release of one new limiter plugin based on the Audio Toolkit. It is available on Windows and OS X (min. 10.8) in different formats.

I also updated the compressor and the expander with improved UI controls. The compressor also has now a dry/wet knob, allowing to use it for parallel compression.

The plug-in is available for download for Windows and Mac (VST/AU).

Musical Entropy reveals Guitar Gadgets easter egg (updated to v1.0.4)

Musical Entropy has revealed an easter egg in Guitar Gadgets, a free effect plug-in for Windows and Mac featuring a compilation of “false” analog guitar pedal simulations, made to be used mainly with electric guitars and guitar amp simulations, but which may be sound interesting in any situation.

Musical Entropy Guitar Gadgets

I’m going to talk about the easter egg in Guitar Gadgets. If you still don’t know how to make it appear, here is the trick : in the “about” tab (one click on the title), click 2 times on “-musicalentropy” (not a double click !), 2 times on “KVR”, 2 times again on “-musicalentropy”, and finally 2 times on “KVR”. This way, you are going to make a little game appear :

The game is called 2048. The original is a hit on smartphones nowadays, and has been created by a teenager called Gabriele Cirulli in one week end ! The game objective is to get a score as high as possible by moving all the pieces at once in one direction. When two pieces with the same number are pushed one on the other, they fuse with a doubled number, which is added to the current score. If you can make a piece with the number 2048 appear, you may consider that you have won the game, but you can still improve your high score.

Guitar Gadgets for Windows and Mac (VST/AU) is a free download.

Related: , , , , , , , Posted in news on Aug 07, 2014 - comment 0 comments

Voxengo has updated Marvel GEQ to version 1.3, MSED to version 2.7 and OldSkoolVerb to version 2.3, introducing VST3 support for the these free effect plug-ins for Windows and Mac.

Voxengo Marvel GEQ

Marvel GEQ is a linear-phase 16-band graphic equalizer AU and VST plugin with multi-channel operation support (supporting up to 8 input/output channels, audio host application-dependent) for professional music production applications. Marvel GEQ offers extensive internal channel routing capabilities, and supports mid/side channel processing.

MSED is a professional audio encoder-decoder plug-in for mid-side processing which is able to encode (split) the incoming stereo signal into two components: mid-side pair, and vice versa: decode mid-side signal pair into stereo signal.

OldSkoolVerb is a freeware algorithmic reverberation AU and VST plug-in for professional music production applications. This plug-in implements a kind of “classic” stereo reverb algorithm which is technically simple yet optimal. It also produces a very clear spatial image that blends well with the mix.

The plug-ins are available to download for Windows and Mac (VST/AU).

vladg/sound releases Nova-67P equalizer plugin

vladg/sound has announced Nova-67P, a free equalizer/compressor effect plug-in for Windows and Mac.

vladg/sound Nova-67P

Nova-67P is a parallel parametric equalizer plugin combined with a compressor. The compressor can optionally operate in frequency dependent and split-band modes. In this case the plugin operates as a parallel dynamic equalizer.

Nova-67P is my submission to KVR Developer Challenge DC14! Okay, I didn’t have enough time to prepare truly “commercial looking” plugin but the concept is too cool to drop it away.

Nova-67P features

  • 5 bands parallel equalizer with auto-gain.
  • Optional high-pass and low-pass filters.
  • Full-band frequency dependent and/or split-band compression.
  • Side-chain filtering and pre-emphasis.
  • Third-octave real-time spectrum analysis.
  • External side-chain support.
  • 64-bit internal processing.
  • Hardcore UI style.

The plug-in is available to download for Windows and Mac (VST/AU).
