Mildon Studios has released HC38 Headphone Calibrator, an effect plug-in for Windows.
HC38 Headphone Calibrator allows the user match the sound of their headphones to that of their studio monitors. It is ideal for field work, when studio monitors are not present, or to mix using headphones. It works by simulating several aspects of monitoring in a room environment. The user can adjust crossfeed, sound absorption, and room reflection.
Crossfeed is the merging of the sound coming from each speaker. The amount of crossfeed can be adjusted by choosing from three approximate speaker distances (3′, 5′, and 7′) and fine-tuned using the crossfeed fader.
What’s truly unique about the HC38 is its capability to simulate the room environment. The user can select from 6 representative flooring and room treatment materials that affect the way the sound is absorbed and reflected.
It also has the basic hi-pass and lo-pass filters so one can make adjustments based on the frequency response graph provided by the headphone manufacturer.
The HC38 Headphone Calibrator is available to purchase for the introductory price of $29 USD until November 10, 2011 (regular $35 USD).

Mildon Studios has released LXR, a stereo channel delay effect plug-in for Windows.
Channel delay, as simple as it sounds, can work wonders in your mix. A 10ms delay in the left or right channel can make your track sound a bit wider. In my experience it can even create the effect of taming harsh low frequencies and sibilants. Of course too much of it can make any voice sound like C3PO, and you don’t want that unless you’re mixing the next RoboCop installment. The bottom line is that you shouldn’t rely on this or similar effects to solve problems in the mix. But if you know when to use it, a little delay can work to your advantage.
LXR for Windows (VST) is available to purchase as a Coffee-for-Plugin, for $3 USD.
Mildon Studios has also released a free Acoustic Steel Guitar Soundfont.

Mildon Studios has released Mildon Strummer, a new guitar strumming engine that has improved performance and packs a lot more features than its predecessor, LemonStrum 2.
It’s easy to spot the music producer from the crowd. He’s the one who’s always trying to rush that long-overdue demo, constantly whining, why, of all days, would his session guitarist pick today to not show up? Why?! If you’re this guy, Mildon Strummer is here to try and save your day.
Got some crispy acoustic patches for your new synth? Got some great-sounding virtual guitars but can’t “strum” them? Mildon Strummer’s new MIDI-Strum feature might come handy. It lets you “strum” other VSTi’s, especially those that don’t have a strum function. Do you need to just slap the rhythm in and get it done? Mildon Strummer has built-in sounds too.

- Three-note trigger system. You can edit which three notes to press on the MIDI keyboard to trigger a chord. You can also assign entire chords to only one key for easy strumming.
- 84 fully configurable chords/chord slots.
- Improved Vertical “Chord Builder”.
- Dedicated Re-strum keys.
