Elysia releases alpha compressor plugin

Elysia alpha compressor plugin

Elysia has released the alpha compressor plugin, the software reincarnation of its famous mastering compressor.

It gives you a painstaking emulation of the sound and features the hardware is known and popular for – programmed by the code experts from Brainworx.

But not only the final stage of mastering will profit big time from this ultimate dynamics processor. In fact, the compression section alone is such a useful tool that we have decided to include a dedicated mixing version with a reduced interface. You might want to use this on every single track of your DAW…

alpha compressor features

  • Integrated M/S Matrix – Mid/Side and stereo processing modes.
  • Auto Fast – Perfect attack and release in any situation.
  • Feed Forward & Feedback – Two selectable compressor characteristics.
  • Sidechain Filter – Frequency selective compression.
  • Parallel Compression – Mixing direct and compressed signals.
  • Soft Clip Limiter – More headroom, more loudness.
  • Audio Filter – Tweaking the sonic structure easily.
  • Warm Mode – Instant signal coloration.

The alpha compressor plugin is available to purchase for PC and Mac (TDM/RTAS/VST/AU), priced at the introductory price of 169 EUR until 31 December, 2010 (regular price 199 EUR, prices excl. VAT).

Sound Performance Lab releases Passeq, passive equalizer goes Analog Code

Related: , , , , , , , , Posted in news on Nov 12, 2010 - comment 0 comments

Sound Performance Lab has announced the release of Passeq, a new equalizer effect plug-in in the Analog Code series.

SPL Passeq Analog Code

With their new Passeq plug-in SPL promises to have faithfully translated into the digital domain the sound and response of passive EQs. The new Analog Code is said to have the most complex algorithms SPL developers have ever conceived to date.

Just like its analog counterpart, the Passeq plug-in provides the most dense network of passive filters ever in one single unit: each channel has 72 filters on three bands. According to SPL, the programming takes into account all interactions between filters and, at the same time, emulates the sound of the input and output transformers. The plug-in includes two display options: the standard two-channel interface and a space-saving single-channel version. One of the plug-in’s highlights is the switchable M/S mode that allows independent processing of mid and side signals.

Passeq Analog Code features

  • Reproduction of all interactions between the passive filters.
  • 72 filters on three bands per channel.
  • Emulation of input and output transformers.
  • Two graphical user interfaces: dual-channel and space-saving single-channel view.
  • Switchable M/S mode for independent processing of mid and side information.

The Passeq Analog Code plug-in is available to purchase for PC and Mac (VST/AU/RTAS) at an MSRP of 149 EUR ($199.66 USD) excl. VAT.

Brainworx releases bx_XL, M/S mastering limiter

Brainworx bx_XL

Brainworx has released bx_XL, a low latency M/S mastering limiter for Windows and Mac.

Its main purpose is to help you get your mixes loud while keeping them clear (undistorted). “As loud” as any major label production and less “squashed” than many of them.

bx_XL internally converts stereo signals into M (mid / sum) and S (side / difference) signals and splits the M channel into 2 bands (hi & lo). This way you can limit and level 3 individual channels to increase loudness and improve clarity of stereo mixes drastically – with much less distortion artifacts and while keeping much more “punch” than any other limiter system.

bx_XL is now available to purchase for PC and Mac (VST/AU/RTAS) for the introductory price of 199 EUR / $279 USD until 25 November, 2010 (regular price 299 EUR / $419 USD).
Previous customers can order bx_XL for 149 EUR / $209 USD. All prices excluding VAT if applicable.

It separates any stereo signal into M & S signal and splits the M signal into 2 bands. bx_XL can separate the bass drum (!) in any stereomix and master it independent from the rest of the stereo mix to get your mixes LOUD and still punchy.

With bx_XL you can get your mixes as loud as any major label release without the artifacts usually distorting your masters. Or you can go to the extreme.. and beyond!

A 14 day public beta version of bx_XL is now available to download for PC and Mac (VST/AU/RTAS). The full version will be available to purchase on 20 October, 2010.
