QuikQuak has released MashTactic, a mashup effect plugin for Windows and Mac.
MashTactic was initially designed as a mashup tool. It can separate different parts of a full mix, manipulating different frequencies and stereo location. Up to eight zones can be created that can then be panned, emphasised or cut out completely.
8 stereo areas of sharp cut-off filtering.
Adjust levels separately in all selected zones.
A great tool for mashup music makers, as vocals and other sounds can be identified and manipulated within a full mix.
Allows the user to emphasise or cut percussive transients giving control over punch or softness in any zone. Each zone can pan separately.
Great for analysing balance and frequency mix of a track you’re composing.
MashTactic for Windows and Mac (VST/AU) is available to purchase for £50 GBP.
A new version of the Mixblendr software package has been released.
