Voxengo releases EBusLim limiter & maximizer plugin

Voxengo EBusLim

Voxengo has announced the release of EBusLim, a brickwall peak limiter and loudness maximization plug-in for Windows and Mac.

EBusLim is a brickwall peak limiter and loudness maximization plug-in for professional music production applications. EBusLim implements a single EL-4-based limiter mode originally designed in Elephant mastering limiter plug-in. This mode is suitable for bus, drum bus, master bus and track processing. The design idea behind EBusLim is to produce an extremely easy-to-use yet effective limiter.

Since EBusLim only features a single processing mode the processing latency was reduced down to 0.5 milliseconds permitting the use of this limiter as master bus overload protector for both stereo and multi-channel applications.

EBusLim features

  • Elephant-quality limiter mode
  • Extreme ease of use
  • Stereo and multi-channel processing
  • 64-bit floating point processing
  • All sample rates support
  • 0.5 ms compensated processing latency

EBusLim for Windows and Mac (VST/AU) is available for purchase for

BBE Sound releases Sonic Sweet v3.0 “Optimized”

BBE Sound Sonic Sweet

BBE Sound has announced the release of Sonic Sweet Optimized, version 3.0 of its plug-in bundle, which includes 3 newly “Optimised” plug-ins and Mach 3 Bass, a new bass enhancer.

This new version makes the legendary BBE Sound available to broadcast, producers and musicians for all their recordings. Sonic Sweet “Optimised” has been completely re-worked from the ground up to be compatible with AAX and Pro Tools 11. The bundle has also been fully tested on the latest operating systems including Mac OS 10.10 (Yosemite) and Windows 8.

The BBE Sonic Sweet “Optimised” is a complete rewrite of the plug-ins included in the original “Sonic Sweet” plug-ins bundle. Designed to make your mixes clearer and louder like its forerunner, it adds a new fourth plug-in to the collection, the Mach 3 Bass. At the heart of the bundle there is still the software version of BBE’s famous Sonic Maximiser hardware range, which is an emulation of their exclusive processing technologies that has set the benchmark for sound enhancement. World-renowned musicians have insisted upon using BBE Sound professional audio processors since they were first introduced in the ’80s.

BBE’s Sonic Sweet “Optimised” will add clarity to the top end and fatness to the bottom, just like their famous hardware processors do without the “fizz” or digital “sizzle” common to most other sonic enhancers. The refinements brought by this new “Optimised” version extends to a new optimised GUI and improved controls for fine-tuning your sound.

*Because Sonic Sweet “Optimised” was completely rebuilt, it is NOT compatible with previous versions of BBE Sonic Sweet Plug-ins. Any sessions with a previous version of Sonic Sweet loaded into it must continue to use the old versions of the plug-ins.

The bundle is available from DontCrack for the introductory price of $69 USD until July 31st, 2014 (regular $149 USD). Previous Sonic Sweet owners can upgrade to the new Sonic Sweet v3.0 bundle for $29 USD.

Lively Audio Maxwell Smart

Lively Audio has released version 2.0 of Maxwell Smart, a transparent true peak limiter / loudness maximizer with look-ahead.

In addition to previous versions, the new one introduces built-in ISP (inter-sample peak) detection equivalent to 4x oversampling (without any of the artifacts or heavy CPU load). It’s been tested by using true peak meters that comply with the latest ITU, EBU and ATSC recommendations for true peak detection.

There are also 3 modes for controlling the sound (smooth, normal and loud), and the GUI has been updated to look like it wasn’t designed 20 years ago.

Maxwell Smart features

  • Transparent true peak limiter / loudness maximizer with look-ahead.
  • Built-in ISP detection equivalent to 4x oversampling (without any of the artifacts).
  • Compliant with the latest ITU, EBU and ATSC recommendations for true peak detection.
  • Adjustable threshold and ceiling (-24dB … 0dB).
  • 3 modes to control the sound: smooth, normal and loud.
  • Compensated latency of 4ms.
  • Support for all sample rates above 11.025kHz.
  • Ideal for mastering, or as a drum bus limiter for example.

Maxwell Smart is available as freeware for Windows (VST).

iox AudioWare releases Titan Maximizer for Reason

iox AudioWare Titan 410X

iox AudioWare has released Titan 410X, a non-destructive loudness maximizer Rack Extension for Propellerhead Reason.

Titan is designed to sculpt your music to maximum levels, fullness, and clarity without pumping artifacts or loss of transients. It uses a non-destructive two stage gain and “contour” control to achieve high average loudness while enhancing or maintaining low level details.

Although originally designed as a master bus effect, Titan can be used as an insert on individual tracks with very low latency. The output stage consists of a brickwall limiter with adjustable soft clip to “soften” clipped signal levels. Monitoring peak and average signal levels is critical in the mastering stage which is why an alphanumerical meter display is provided for quick and easy checks of the input or output levels.

Titan 410X Precision Maximizer features

  • Processing utilizes 64 bit floating point.
  • Alphanumerical display for easy monitoring of signal levels even in bypass mode.
  • Low latency, which makes syncing real-time audio and MIDI possible.
  • Pre-process “over” 0dB indicator LEDs to detect a “hot” input signal.
  • Adjustable soft-clip algorithm to reduce harsh signal.

The Rack Extension is available to purchase for 55 EUR.
