LVC-Audio Giveaway – Win one of 5 effect plugins

LVC-Audio is offering rekkerd.org readers a chance to win 1 of 5 free copies of any of its paid effect plug-ins for Windows and Mac.

LVC-Audio ClipShifter

ClipShifter 2 is a wave-shaping audio plugin that functions like a clipping-style limiter.

It provides enough user controls to be useful in all mixing stages: from distorting basses and drums, to maximizing mix buses and warming-up overall mixes.

The sonic characteristics of the clipping distortion can be altered from hard, brickwall-style clipping, to softer saturation with compression.

LVC-Audio Transector

Transector is an aggressive transient-designing audio plugin, used to attenuate various transient qualities of an audio signal.

Use it to boost the initial attack of various instruments, such as adding more crack to a snare or kick drum. Simultaneously, you can use Transector to alter the decaying portion of audio.

This is useful in many situations, such as decreasing the decay of a vocal track, or reducing to amount of room ambiance in drum tracking.

LVC-Audio HotPhuzz

HotPhuzz is a saturation designer plugin.

It is a creative tool that specializes in the creation of distinct saturation tones. HotPhuzz uses a multiband distortion process to create vintage, modern, and unique saturation effects.

Although HotPhuzz can be pushed into over distortion, it excels at creating more moderate saturation sounds. You can call the sounds whatever terms you like, but it still sounds good.

LVC-Audio PreAMPed

PreAMPed is an audio plugin that recreates many of the qualities of analog preamplifiers.

This includes subtle EQ response curves, low- and high- frequency saturation, differences between left and right signals, crosstalk, noise, transformer/coil impulse response, and saturation and EQ changes due to gain changes.

LVC-Audio TonedPLUS

TonedPLUS is a specialized tone shaping plugin with selectable analog modeling.

Expanding on the concept of the free plugin Toned, TonedPLUS is designed primarily for use in the mastering process or on two-track audio busses.

TonedPLUS uses two distinct equalization processes: a three-band tone-shaping matrix, and a specially designed high pass (HP) filter.

For a change to win one of these plug-ins, simply leave a comment below and tell us which plug-in you would like to win.

The deadline for entering the giveaway is October 31st, 2014, 12.00pm. The winners will be chosen randomly and notified shortly after.

Good luck!

de la Mancha sets free GTO, GTX, QB-3 & ClipStar plugins

de la Mancha has announced that its GTO, GTX, QB-3 and ClipStar plug-ins are now available as freeware.

de la Mancha GTX

GTO and GTX are a pair of vintage style ‘character’ compressors, designed like their muscle car name-sakes for brute power, pure speed and to make a loud noise. They have everything you’d expect in a thorough-bred compressor, but are tuned for maximum control and ease of use, each with their own unique vintage colouring on top.

GTO is a peak compressor, designed for raw power and lightning response. GTX has a smoother RMS delivery with further refinement in the shape of a knee control.

de la Mancha QB-3

QB3 is a vintage-style, 3-band EQ plug-in, with its own unique colouring and a few tricks up its sleeve. For each band you can adjust the centre frequency and gain.

For the low and high shelving bands you can adjust the steepness of the slope, whilst for the mid peaking band you can adjust the bandwidth. This allows a range of sounds from steep, sharp cuts to smooth and gentle boosts.

de la Mancha ClipStar

ClipStar is a soft clipper effect plugin, designed to prevent peaks in a subtler way than hard clipping, increase loudness and add pleasing saturation.

Where ClipStar differs from other clippers is that it can leave the low frequencies untouched, where distortion is more evident, and allow a greater boost in gain without noticeably degrading the signal. You can use ClipStar for peak protection, for loudness gain or for sympathetic distortion depending on your mood and the phase of the moon.

The plug-ins are available to download for Windows (VST). Donations to Cancer Research UK are appreciated.
