Nugen Audio releases SEQ-S equalizer plugin

Related: , , , , , , , Posted in news on Jun 24, 2014 - comment 0 comments

Nugen Audio has announced the release of SEQ-S, a high-fidelity, linear-phase equalizer ideal for music production and mastering as well as film and post-production applications.

Nugen Audio SEQ-S

With support for mono, stereo, 5.1, and 7.1 surround, SEQ-S provides sonic sculpting and precision EQ matching including stereo mid-side operation, automated spectrum analysis, curve smoothing, and a direct-draw spline interface for corrective applications.

“With SEQ-S, we’re providing the industry’s most advanced linear-phase spline-match EQ — enabling sound professionals to massage and correct any audio with incredible resolution and precision that is far beyond what’s possible with a traditional parametric interface,” said Jon Schorah, creative director, NUGEN Audio. “Unlike many digital EQs, SEQ-S features a phase profile that is linear across the frequency spectrum, which results in natural-sounding EQ changes and produces minimal phase artifacts. SEQ-S also includes a unique resolution setting that can be used with high precision in the low frequencies, allowing for highly transparent adjustments without muddying the mix.”

Through SEQ-S’s direct-draw interface and detailed spectrum analysis, users can quickly identify and specifically fine-tune their audio with ease. When coupled with EQ matching via sonic fingerprinting, the solution offers powerful creative possibilities for audio professionals. For instance, they can match one recording to another to capture the “flavor” of a piece of source audio and then transfer it to the current project — a technique that can be used on individual tracks to unify different takes and microphone positions.

In addition, SEQ-S’s EQ invert button provides a minimally invasive technique for creating space in a complex mix, a task that is typically too cumbersome with a traditional EQ. In a typical music project, by “sampling” the vocal and then using the EQ invert button to apply the inverted curve to the backing, users can gently create specific space without unnecessarily damaging the original tonality of the underlying audio.

SEQ-S for Windows and Mac (VST/AU/RTAS/AAX/AudioSuite) is available for MSRP $249 USD.

Nugen Audio updates Visualizer audio analysis suite (incl. AAX 64-bit & VST3)

Nugen Audio has announced the release of a significant update of its Visualizer audio analysis suite.

Nugen Audio Visualizer
Designed for high-end music production professionals, Visualizer now supports the Avid AAX 64-bit format for both PC and Mac, as well as the VST3 standard for digital audio plug-ins.

Visualizer provides comprehensive audio analysis for recording, mixing, and mastering in a single plug-in, offering a standardized reference set of professional tools designed to help audio engineers work faster, avoid mistakes, repeat past successes, and understand the success of others. With the latest upgrade, Visualizer is now among the first in the industry to be compatible with Avid Pro Tools® 11, the latest version of Avid’s popular digital audio workstation.

With Visualizer, engineers are able to access many different views within a single intelligent window system, which lets them select the view combinations they need. Visualizer automatically resizes and aligns windows to maximize legibility and referencing information across screens. For recording, Visualizer offers tools for calibration, setting levels, signal path checking, noise minimization, and many other audio tasks. At the mixing desk, engineers can use Visualizer for tasks such as low-end control, masking, hidden frequencies, and stereo placement, among many others. For mastering, Visualizer supports a wide range of views such as stereo spread, phase relationships, and EQ distribution.

“When we first launched Visualizer in 2005, it quickly gained the attention of producers and helped NUGEN Audio build its brand in the audio production industry. Today, Visualizer is an indispensable analysis tool for quality audio production in music studios around the world,” said Jon Schorah, creative director, NUGEN Audio. “The new update is the latest example of how we’re continually adapting our products to meet our customers’ evolving requirements; for instance, 64-bit AAX compatibility provides future-proofing for our many customers who rely on Avid’s editing software.”

Visualizer for Windows and Mac (VST/AU/RTAS/AAX/AudioSuite) is available for purchase for $199 USD.

NUGEN Audio updates VisLM to v1.6 (incl. AAX & 64-Bit OS X)

NUGEN Audio VisLM

NUGEN Audio has announced the release of VisLM version 1.6, a significant update to the company’s visual loudness monitoring tool. For the first time, VisLM is now available in the Avid® AAX format. Additionally, VisLM is now available in a 64-bit OS X® version.

“The availability of a plug-in that’s compatible with both AAX and 64-bit OS X means that our customers can continue editing as they always have, even as systems and technologies evolve,” said Jon Schorah, NUGEN Audio creative director. “VisLM 1.6 also has a number of other new features and usability improvements that our customers have been eagerly anticipating.”

VisLM 1.6 includes a new dialog gate option that enables automatic measurement of dialog sections within the source material. Measurements can now be written to automation tracks so that the loudness profile and true-peak clips can be seen against the waveform in the digital audio workstation timeline for diagnostic referencing. Also, the short-term sliding-window value is now adjustable.

Editors will see enhancements to usability, including a simple “global reset” option and automatic start/stop/reset of the integrated program measurement following the transport bar. Maximum and minimum alerts settings are now available independently, and users can switch to the compact version from within the plug-in with a resizable interface.

With detailed, objective loudness measurement, history, and logging facilities, VisLM provides an easy-to-use ITU, ATSC (Calm Act), and EBU standard-compliant way to measure, compare, and contrast loudness during production, broadcast, and post-production, on the fly or for entire sections of audio. Offering true-peak level metering (inter-sample accurate level measurement), loudness range (to help decide if and how much dynamic compression to apply), momentary “instantaneous loudness” for mixing by ear, short-term loudness (three-second time window), and program loudness (long-term integrated loudness measurement), VisLM is a comprehensive tool that helps audio professionals cut through the complexity of loudness compliance.

VisLM-C is available to purchase for $299 USD, VisLM-H is $449 USD.

Nugen Audio ISL

NuGen Audio has announced a free update to ISL, offering the latest in transparent inter-sample limiting with native compatibility for all major DAW and editing systems.

This update ensures onward compatibility with Avid platforms and introduces native OSX 64-bit compatibility for the first time, allowing ISL to integrate seemlessly with FCPX and Logic Pro etc. iLok licensing is also available as an alternative to the existing license code for those who find this method more convenient.

ISL is a fully standards compliant inter-sample true peak limiter, enabling you to transparently prevent inter-sample clips during mixdown, helping to ensure downstream audio fidelity, especially where lossy codecs (eg. MP3 and ACC) are employed.

Changes in ISL

  • AAX.
  • iLok option.
  • Native 64-bit on OSX.
  • ITU-R B.S. 1770-03 compliant.

ISL is available to purchase for $249 USD.

Nugen Audio releases ISL—Inter Sample True Peak Limiter

Nugen Audio ISL

Nugen Audio has announced the release of its ISL Inter Sample True Peak Limiter for Windows and Mac.

Finally, there is no need to second guess your sample-peak limiter time and time again, or deliberately increase headroom to avoid a downstream problem. Now you can simply dial in your True-peak limit and let ISL take care of the rest.

ISL is a transparent look-ahead limiter designed to allow you to get on with creative audio production while it takes care of True-peak compliance for you.

ISL uses the standardised True-Peak algorithms of ITU-R B.S. 1770 and related standards and is suitable for the control of audio for Post Production and Broadcast applications. True Peak limiting can also be used to ensure that down-stream Codecs (mp3, AAC etc.) do not introduce distortion into the signal.

ISL features

  • Loudness compatible limiting.
  • Protect against distortion introduced by lossy codecs.
  • Don’t guess, set TP limit directly from the specification to ensure compliance.
  • Mix with your ears, ISL takes care of the rest.

ISL for Windows and Mac (VST/AU/RTAS/AudioSuite) is available to purchase for $249 USD.
