Klanghelm releases DC8C compressor

Related: , , , , , Posted in news on Mar 19, 2012 - comment 1 comment

Klanghelm has released DC8C, a flexible compressor effect plug-in for Windows and Mac.

The main goal while designing DC8C was to get a very clean compressor action without unwanted and often almost unevitable artefacts/distortion. This way you can achieve almost invisible compression for your most demanding mastering sessions, when you want to avoid coloration. If you aim for colour you can choose between two saturation models.

From opto style, peak compression, RMS compression, Feedback, Feedforward compression (and everything inbetween) to negative ratios, zero latency brickwall limiting, from snappy transient treatment to smooth transient rounding – everything is possible.

DC8C features

  • Detector network and gain reduction smoothing for extra smooth operation.
  • Choose between two different attack and two release curves.
  • Clean mode (100% clean compression with no intermodulation, no distortion, no aliasing).
  • Up to 8x oversampling.
  • Sidechain filter with high pass & low pass filter plus tilt control, which let’s you shift the frequency response of the detector.
  • Customize the program dependency of the compressor seperately for Attack and Release.
  • GR-smoothing control to dertermine, how sensitive the compressor reacts to changes in the computed gain reduction, great to emulate opto style compression.
  • Hold control for heavy pumping compression effects.
  • Pre comp control to delay the start of the attack to leave transients completely alone or radically shape the attack.
  • Calibration control not only to set the reference level for the meters but also for the whole signal path. The higher the value, the softer the compression characteristics and the lower the saturation amount.
  • Unique Feedback-Mix-Control, which lets you determine, how much of the compressor’s output is fed back into the detector. This way it is possible to morph between Feedback and Feedforward Compression topologies.
  • Zero latency limting mode.
  • True zero attack (0.0 ms).
  • Negative ratios possible.
  • Parallel compression, peak-compression, RMS-compression.
  • Easy mode which features 4 different compression styles.
  • Lots of comprehensive presets to keep you started.

DC8C for Windows and Mac (VST/AU) is available for the introductory price of 20 EUR.

Klanghelm releases DC1A compressor plug-in + DC8C announced

Related: , , , , , Posted in news on Mar 02, 2012 - comment 0 comments

Klanghelm has released the DC1A, a free compressor effect for Windows and Mac.

Klanghelm DC1A

DC1A is the little brother of the compression monster DC8C. I’ve taken one of my favourite settings from DC8C and tried to make it work in a two control context. Soundwise it’s comparable to the PUNCH mode in DC8C. It’s kind of a mixture of classic opto and FET designs.

I’ve always wanted to do a compressor with just an input and output knob, a compressor that just works: gentle, faithful, from almost invisible, smooth leveling to heavy pumping with a nice crunchy saturation and punchy enough to treat drums with.

DC1A looks like a one trick pony. But don’t get fooled by lack of further controls. You may be suprised on how many different material this little thing works. DC1A is heavily program dependent, so is the saturation.

DC1A is available to download as a freeware effect plug-in for Windows and Mac (VST/AU).

The DC8C is scheduled for release in March, 2012.

Related: , , , , Posted in news on Feb 09, 2012 - comment 0 comments

Klanghelm has updated its VUMT VU meter, PPM and trim effect plugin for Windows to version 1.8.2.

The ballistics are completely tweakable. In its default state it is accurately meeting the specs of a standard VU meter (including 1% overshoot). With the unique overshoot parameter it’s possible to recreate the behaviour of your favourite “real world” VU, you are familiar with. VUMT has an additional peak/clip LED, wich is also fully customisable.

Changes in VUMT v1.8.2

  • VST3 support added.
  • Both Mac and Win versions now have a dedicated installer.
  • The PPM mode has now its own adjustable reference level.
  • Fixed: input of negative values.
  • Fixed: strange behaviour at higher sample rates.

VUMT for Windows and Mac (VST/VST3/AU/Standalone) is available to purchase for 6.28 EUR. The update is free for all existing customers.
