LVC-Audio announces beta support for RTAS & AAX for Mac

Related: , , , , Posted in news on Apr 25, 2014 - comment 0 comments

LVC-Audio has announced beta support for RTAS and AAX formats for Mac OS X for its PreAMPed, ClipShifter, and HotPhuzz effect plug-ins.

LVC-Audio HotPhuzz
HotPhuzz public beta for Pro Tools now also available.

In addition to support for RTAS and AAX formats, the updates also fix a common bug with the user interface. This prevented text entry on Macs, and made the text appear the incorrect size on many Windows and Mac computers. Although PhreePhuzz currently does not support RTAS/AAX, an update is provided to correct the text problem. To update, just proceed to the plugin pages to download the latest versions.

To celebrate the updates, you can get an 11% discount (for Pro Tools 11, of course). Just enter PT11 during checkout. This code will be valid until the end of May.

This beta includes improvements and fixes based on user feedback so far. We thank the beta-testers for their enthusiastic response to Minihost Modular.

As a standalone, Minihost Modular can be used as an advanced VST or AU host with modular routing with some sequencing recording/playback capabilities. As a VST or AU plugin, Minihost Modular can be used to extend the capabilities of your existing DAW software with its powerful modular, recallable, environment.

LVC-Audio releases PhreePhuzz (beta) free saturation plugin

Related: , , , , , Posted in news on Feb 12, 2014 - comment 0 comments

LVC-Audio has launched a beta of PhreePhuzz, a free saturation effect plug-in for Windows and Mac.

LVC-Audio PhreePhuzz
PhreePhuzz utilizes many underlying technologies used to create PreAMPed.

PhreePhuzz can be pushed into overt distortion; however, it excels at more gentle saturation effects. Each of the four saturation settings has emphasis on different frequency components.

PhreePhuzz can be used to give a track low-end saturation without dulling the high frequencies, or it can be used to give a shimmering high-end sparkle without muddying the bass.

PhreePhuzz features

  • Virtual analog saturation simulator.
  • 4x oversampling using linear phase filtering to ensure great high-end response.
  • Four distinct saturation types, including separate saturation algorithms and multiband settings.
  • Standard LVC-Audio controls, like A->B knob comparison and fine adjustment of knobs.

The public beta of the plug-in is available to download for Windows and Mac (VST/AU).
