Voxengo has announced version 2.5 of Polysquasher, a mastering compressor effect plug-in for Windows and Mac.
Polysquasher was designed with a main goal: to be transparent. Transparent compression action is a cornerstone for any mastering compressor. Transparency of audio signal processing is necessary to preserve all existing elements in the mix, while compression itself is necessary to make the mix sound uniform to other mixes (tracks) and to make it sound more solid and “glued”.
Changes in Polysquasher v2.5
- Added VST3 support.
- Implemented color scheme editor with load and save functions.
- Added “Brown” and “White” color schemes.
- Redesigned the infrastructure controls.
Polysquasher for Windows and Mac (VST/AU) is available for purchase for $79.95 USD.

LVC-Audio has announced the release of Limited-MAX and Limited-T, two new limiter effect plug-ins for Windows and Mac.
Limited-MAX is a mastering limiter with numerous features. This includes dithering controls, mid/side processing, k-metering options, inter-sample peak metering, DC filtering, and stereo channel linking. Limited-MAX uses a unique process to dynamically switch between three different limiting algorithms. This includes some borrowed technology from ClipShifter to handle tough transient peaks. All controls to the dynamic algorithm processing are configurable through an X/Y control interface and display.
Limited-T is geared for buss limiting. In some respects, it is a slimmed-down version of Limited-MAX; however, Limited-T adds a host of vintage features to add glue to busses and individual tracks. Using the same amp modeling features found on PreAMPed, Toned, and TonedPLUS, Limited-T has 5 selectable amp models. Additionally, Limited-T extends “vintage modeling” by simulating many of the unique hardware characteristics found in analog limiters and compressors.
Limited-MAX and Limited-T are available for Windows and Mac (VST/AU/RTAS/AAX), priced at $64.95 USD and $29.95 USD, respectively. A bundle of both is available for $70 USD for a limited time.

Slate Digital has announced Mix/Master & Mix/Master/FX bundles, offering an entire virtual analog studio, starting at $19.99 USD per month.
One of the key missions of Slate Digital is to give audio engineers access to all the amazing tools that they’ve ever dreamed of, and for a price that makes them worry more about making music rather than worry about their bank account. But last summer, our friends at Gobbler introduced us to an idea that would allow people to better experience our products and use them more efficiently, creatively, and affordably. Introducing the Mix/Master bundle and Mix/Master/FX bundle.
With the Mix/Master bundle, you get every single Slate Digital product, and every single Slate Digital update and future product for $19.99 per month. That’s a full arsenal of tape machines, analog mixing consoles, vintage eqs, classic compressors, mastering limiters, and so much more in the pipeline coming soon. And again, when you join the subscription, you don’t just get what Slate Digital has now, but you’ll get new plugins throughout the year for free as long as you subscribe.
