Voxengo Drumformer multiband dynamics effect plugin updated to v1.2

Voxengo Drumformer

Voxengo has updated its Drumformer multiband drum and master track dynamics processing plug-in for Windows and Mac to v1.2.

Drumformer can operate in broadband, 2-band and 3-band modes, with each band having compressor-expander and saturation modules. The sound of the compressor can be defined as “gluey with a ping”, because it instantly creates a “tight and glued together” sound while masterfully emphasizing the transients. The saturation module offers you a choice between six saturation modes, each having a smooth sound and differing harmonic content.

Changes in Drumformer v1.2

  • Equalizer’s virtual keyboard issue fixed.
  • A rare crash issue happening in Logic Pro fixed.
  • Plug-in now works correctly on ProTools via FXpansion VST-RTAS adapter.

Drumformer for Windows and Mac (VST/AU) is $99.95 USD.

FabFilter updates all plug-ins incl. AAX support

FabFilter AAX suppor

FabFilter has released updates for all FabFilter plug-ins, introducing support for the new AAX plug-in format in Pro Tools 10.

The FabFilter Pro-L limiter now offers a new ‘Compact’ view, and the FabFilter Pro-Q EQ plug-in features spectrum analyzer and solo mode improvements. Furthermore, all FabFilter Pro plug-ins now support the most common Pro Tools hardware control surfaces. The updates are now available on all platforms: Windows and Mac OS X, 32-bit and 64-bit.

New features and bug fixes in FabFilter Pro-Q

  • Improved the real-time spectrum analyzer: it is now more responsive and has a smoother curve release, making it easier to visually follow the curves over time. In addition, the combined Pre+Post setting now compensates the plug-in latency correctly in Linear Phase mode.
  • Improved Solo mode to transparently limit its output volume to -6 dB, avoiding undesired volume spikes at all times.
  • Fixed bug that caused an artificial roll-off to 0 Hz in the real-time spectrum analyzer.
  • Fixed bug when dragging multiple bands in the EQ display that could cause small round-off errors in the frequency parameter values relative to each other.
  • Fixed bug that caused Solo mode to function incorrectly on per-channel bands as soon as you changed the frequency of the band while in Solo mode.

New features in FabFilter Pro-L

  • Added new Compact interface layout, which hides the animated level display. Instead, larger level meters and all advanced controls including a large Output knob are shown. To switch between interface layouts, click the resize button in the bottom-right corner of the interface.

Other new features and bug fixes

  • All FabFilter plug-ins: Added support for the new AAX plug-in format for Pro Tools 10. The AAX plug-in is 100% compatible with the RTAS plug-in: Pro Tools 10 will automatically use our new AAX plug-ins instead of the existing RTAS plug-ins when loading existing sessions.
  • All FabFilter plug-ins: Improved keyboard handling on Windows, fixing the “space key stealing” problem in Studio One and FL Studio.
  • All FabFilter plug-ins: Improved mouse handling behavior in Pro Tools when Cmd+Ctrl / Ctrl+Win – clicking a control to show the automation timeline.
  • FabFilter Pro-Q, Pro-L, Pro-C and Pro-G: Added support for the most important Pro Tools hardware control surfaces, such as Avid ICON D-Control and D-Command. In FabFilter Pro-Q, we have added a new Flat 7 Bands factory preset that can be used as your personal default preset in combination with a control surface.
  • FabFilter Pro-G and Pro-C: It is now possible to double-click the low-pass and high-pass sidechain filtering buttons to enter parameter values directly.
  • FabFilter Pro-Q, Timeless 2, Twin 2, Volcano 2 and Simplon: In the AU and VST3 plug-in formats, parameters are now grouped where possible to make automation easier to overview in the host.
  • FabFilter Timeless 2: Fixed a bug that caused incorrect side-chain handling in the mono-to-stereo RTAS version of the plug-in.
  • FabFilter Timeless 2: Fixed bug that caused the Dry Enabled parameter always to be re-enabled when loading a version 1 preset, such as Dubby 05 bM in the Best Of folder.

The updates are free for existing FabFilter customers. Updates and 30-day trial versions can be downloaded from FabFilter.
