Overtone DSP DYN4000

OverTone DSP has released DYN4000, a channel compressor/expander/gate plug-in for Windows and Mac.

Based on channel dynamics processing from one of the best-known British recording consoles, the DYN4000 comprises compressor / limiter and expander / gate sections.

The plug-in includes a true RMS side-chain detector, while the compressor provides a switchable soft / hard knee characteristic, ensuring smooth onset of compression at the threshold point or more aggressive dynamics control on demand.

Switchable compressor fast attack settings are also provided as is variable programme dependent release while the expander / gate section provides a 1:2 downward expander or a 1:∞ gate setting with threshold hysteresis.

DYN4000 for Windows and Mac (VST/AU) is available for purchase for £20 GBP.

Unfiltered Audio releases G8 Dynamic Gate plugin

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

Unfiltered Audio has announced the release of G8 Dynamic Gate, a gate effect plug-in for Windows and Mac.

Unfiltered Audio G8

G8 is a high-quality noise gate with many tricks up its sleeve. It is both a professional dynamics workstation and an experimental amplitude effect.

Use it for noise reduction, AM/granular synthesis, bouncing ball rhythm programming, tremolo, trajectory panning, transient shaping, and much, much more.

G8 Dynamic Gate features

  • “Cycle” and “One-shot” gating modes give you the ability to use G8 as a stutter effect, AM/granular, or tremolo.
  • Customizable MIDI inputs and outputs allow you to trigger G8 from MIDI clips or to synchronize instruments to G8 for drum replacement or groove extraction. Combined with G8’s alternative gating modes, you can create intricate rhythms, bouncing ball effects, or MIDI clips with granular trigger patterns. Synchronize two instances of G8 over MIDI for the ultimate customizable sidechain.
  • “Reject” Outputs allow you to hear the audio that gets blocked by the gate. Use this innovative feature to create amplitude-dependent effect chains.
  • “Flip mode” swaps the regular outputs with the Reject Outputs. Use G8 as a strange compressor, or remove grains from your audio.
  • Expert Mode contains an advanced routing, amplitude, and filtering matrix for each channel, as well as individual input monitors for up to 4 channels. Use this to clean up the analysis input with even more precision, or to create unpredictable gating polyrhythms.
  • Sidechain support (in select hosts, please see the compatibility list for more information).
  • Independent Analysis Gain and Output Gain controls eliminate the frustration of balancing your mix with your ideal analysis level.
  • RMS and Peak style metering selection ensures that you will always have the right tool for the job.
  • Lookahead control with accurate latency reporting to the host.
  • Wet/Dry control for parallel gating, compression, or expansion. The dry signal is latency-compensated to prevent any unwanted phase issues.
  • Variable Reduction controls the depth of the gating, from full silence to barely-there disturbances.
  • Hysteresis and Hold parameters to prevent “chatter” or unwanted dropouts.
  • Locking modes allow you to keep specific parameters frozen on preset change.
  • DRM Free. When you buy it, you own it. No serial numbers, dongles, or forced internet connections.
  • Steam Cloud Support means that if you use G8 Gate through Steam, all of your presets will be automatically backed up to the cloud and synced between your computers. Every purchase of G8 includes a Steam Key.

The plug-in is available for Windows and Mac (VST/AU) for the introductory price of $39.99 USD until May 13th, 2014 (regular $49.99 USD).

123creative releases Multiband NoiseGate NX3

123creative Multiband NoiseGate NX3

123creative has launched Multiband NoiseGate NX3, a multi-band noise gate effect plug-in for Windows.

Noise gate is processor that „mute“ signal that is quieter than threshold level and vice versa pass signal that is louder than threshold level. This is mostly used during recording of live drums on more microphones, so if you are recording hi-hats microphone is also recording kick drum but at much lower level. You want to remove quite sound of bass drum from hi-hat channel – you use noise gate. Noise gate is useful also for removing low analog noise, low room reverb or some disturbing noises/speech in background of record. Next example from real use: you are recording guitar and want to use digital simulation of pedals and combo, but you record it with very low noise level for example -80db, later this low level noise is multiplied by distortion/fuzz pedal simulation to level -40db and more, so you need to remove this noise: it is suggested to use noisegate at input to remove very low noise -80db.

Often you don’t want to mute full frequency spectrum, but you want to set different threshold level of other frequency ranges – for example you want to mute just quite subbass under 50db.

For these purposes you will need Multi band noise gate.

Multiband noise gate can be used also for special creative effects, try it on any drum loops or if you are slicing melodic loops (with Slicer in FL studio for example) for creating glitch music styles, try to use multi band noise gate to get much more natural sound and effect of more glued slices together. Possibilities are endless…from technical things to creative freedom.

The plugin is available for the introductory price of 13.23 EUR (regular 18.90 EUR).

eaReckon updates ANALOG87 Series to v1.2.0 (incl. new MD-GATE87)

Related: , , , , , Posted in news on Jan 27, 2014 - comment 0 comments

eaReckon has announced version 1.2.0 of its ANALOG87 Series of effect plug-ins, which now includes MD-GATE87.

eaReckon MD-GATE87
SD-GATE87 is the MIDI version of the SD-GATE87 sidechain gate and “duck” effect plug-in.

It features a MIDI input but no audio sidechain. With its MIDI option disabled, it works exactly the same as SD-GATE87 (in non-sidechain mode).

Once the MIDI option enabled, the gate is controlled by a single MIDI note (a “Learn” function will help you to assign it the easy way).

Different MIDI modes are available (these are described in the updated manual):
- In Gate mode: Trigger, Unmute and Play.
- In Duck mode: Trigger, Mute (A) and Mute (L).

Changes in ANALOG87 Series v1.2.0

    [SD-GATE87/SD-COMP87]: Important improvement of the reference section and sidechain processing.
    [SD-GATE87] With the (thresholds) ‘Link’ option enabled, it is now possible to adjust both (high and low) thresholds by manipulating any of the two threshold knobs.
    [SD-GATE87] Improved precision of the fine tuning option (Shift + Mouse) of some knobs (Attack, Hold, Release).
    [PR-EQUA87] Improved frequency analyzer: higher “resolution”, new ‘Threshold’ and ‘Release’ controls.
    [CS-STRIP87] New ‘Signal Flow’ option that can be used to change the order of effects.

The ANALOG87 Series for Windows and Mac (VST/AU) is available to purchase for 99 EUR. The MD-GATE87 is free for registered users of SD-GATE87.

Expert Sleepers releases ES-40, ESX-8CV & ESX-8GT mk2 Eurorack synth modules

Expert Sleepers Eurorack modules

Expert Sleepers has announced the release of three new Eurorack synth modules.

The Expert Sleepers range of modules (including the ES-3 Lightpipe/CV Interface, offering ADAT connectivity instead of the ES-40′s S/PDIF) offers a highly configurable range of computer/synthesizer interfacing solutions, supported not only by Expert Sleepers own Silent Way software but increasingly used in conjunction with e.g. Max/MSP or NI’s Reaktor.

Because the modules connect over an audio interface, rather than say USB or Ethernet, they are able to offer rock solid timing and deep integration with standard audio environments.

New Expert Sleepers Eurorack modules

  • The ES-40 SPDIF Interface (£94.80) converts a standard S/PDIF input to five channels of expansion headers, which are used in conjunction with the Expert Sleepers ESX range of expanders.
  • The ESX-8CV CV Expander (£130.80) is an expansion module for the ES-4, ES-40 or ES-5, adding eight CV outputs from one expansion header.
  • The ESX-8GT mk2 Gate Expander (£54) is an expansion module for the ES-4, ES-40 or ES-5, adding 8 on/off outputs for use as gates, triggers, clocks etc. from one expansion header.

All modules are available to purchase immediately.
