Audio Poison Stagger

Audio Poison has announced Stagger, a multi-filter/multi-effect plug-in for Windows and Mac.

Stagger includes different orders and structures for all of the common filter types (LP, HP, BP and BS). As well, some of them have been fused together with various distortions and modulation techniques to truly bring out the monster in your track. With the filter/modulation hybrids, you can even make your sounds talk or you can take it a step further by adding one of several of Stagger’s uniquely designed formant filters and/or additional distortions to really bring out the beast.

With the filters set a side, you also get several delay based effects that we have deemed appropriate for modulation. They include a devilish detuner, a delay based comb filter, a vibrato, a flanger, a notch controlled phasor with a built in comb filter and a doppler radar for tracking military aircraft which goes hand in hand with some of the military style modulation techniques taken from W.W.II.

Stagger features

  • 5 effect kernels, includes 5 individual LFOs & envelopes.
  • 60 filters and effects to choose from and/or combine
    • Filters all have multiple design types and orders.
    • Low Pass, High Pass, Band Pass, Notch and Formant filter type(s).
    • Includes FM, PM, AM, AM-DSB and AM-SSB modulators and several unique distortion algorithms!
    • Various filter/modulator and filter/distortion combination(s).
    • Intelligent routing (parallel, groupable series A => D). Automatic mixing w/ perceptual weighting (to prevent layer attenuation).
    • Step sequencer designed with usability in mind
      • Multiple speeds
      • Copy / Paste functionality
      • Support for 16 patterns each with 4 layers
    • Also included: tremelo, vibrato, stereo pan, sample delay, pitch shifter, detuner.
    • Driven completely by the Audio Poison DSP engine.

A release candidate of Stagger for Windows and Mac (VST/AU) is available to purchase for $48 USD (40% off regular $80 USD). RTAS, AAX and TDM versions are scheduled for release.

Mildon Studios sets free HUE-X & M4GIQ effect plugins

Related: , , , , , Posted in news on May 17, 2013 - comment 0 comments

Mildon Studios has launched the HUE-X + M4GIQ Plugin Bundle, a collection of two effect plug-ins for Windows.

Mildon Studios HUE-X

HUE-X is perfect EQ for those who trust their ears or just love to experiment with sound. It is designed to let you bring out what you want in the sound instantly and with much ease. Now you can control different characteristics of the sound without having to deal with the obscurity of traditional EQ’s.

Mildon Studios M4GIQ

HUE-X breaks it down to ten faders: Boom, Depth, Fullness, Body, Warmth, Clarity, Sheen, Brightness, Sparkle, Punch. These faders are divided into two groups: Warm Tones (red strip) and Cool Tones (blue strip).

M4GIQ is a 4-band multi-fx plugin that lets you apply Gain, Panning, and Delay to each frequency band. This is extremely useful for spreading frequencies across the stereo image, making it easier for the sound to cut through.

You can shape the sound further with the Gain controls and High-pass/Low-pass filters. Delay can also be added to make an interesting effect, or to emphasize the spreading of frequencies.

Both are available to download as a bundle for Windows (VST) at no cost.

  • (fix: Mac OS X) Gatekeeper signed installers now install correctly on Mac OS X 10.5.
  • (improvement: Windows) The 32-bit and 64-bit VST plug-ins are now installed as separate components. You can choose which one(s) to install, as well as selecting different install folders for each architecture.
  • (fix: Mac OS X Audio Unit) Fixed issue which caused Reaper to host new instances of Sequent as a mono plug-in.
  • (fix: Mac OS X Audio Unit) Fixed minor memory leak in parameter names.
  • (improvement) Clearer UI fonts in various places.
  • (improvement: Linux) Presets and configuration files are now located to comply with the XDG Base Directory Specification. Older installations will still use any existing preset library location to maintain backwards compatibility.
