MaxSynths has announced the release of the DSP-1, a dynamics processor for drum tracks.
DSP-1 is a high performance dynamic signal processor specifically designed to process drum tracks. DSP-1 can be used as an insert effect on single drum channels (bass drum, snare drum, overheads, etc.) or to process the entire drum bus.
The aim of this effect is to increase the perceived level of the processed audio without introduce too much color or artifacts and, above all, avoiding distortion. With DSP-1 it’s very easy to maximize the audio level of your drum track without make it sound over compressed or distorted.
Intelligent Dynamic Processor (IDP).
Saturator with three different operation modes.
Transparent increment of the perceived volume level.
Automatic peak limiter.
High precision input/output VU-meter.
Low CPU usage.
DSP-1 for Windows (VST) is available to purchase for 16.90 EUR.

MaxSynths aPiano acoustic piano instrument in Native Instruments Kontakt.
aPiano is an acoustic piano emulation with an “open, big and vibrant sound”. The goal was to create a good piano sound suitable for any style, with a realistic feeling, warm but incisive at the same time and very limited in size (in contraposition with the multi gigabytes piano libraries available on the market today).
On the technical side what makes aPiano something unique is that each single sample in this piano library has been modeled in a dedicated software following mathematical calculations. Every single sound has been generated into a computer but with the challenge to make it sound as something real. And according to what people says the goal has been succesfully reached!
The aPiano for Kontakt (requires version 4.2 or above) costs 19.90 EUR. A multiformat version is 24.90 EUR.
