SoundToys Devil-Loc, analog level destroyer (free for limited time)

SoundToys has released Devil-Loc, an analog level destroyer effect plug-in for Windows and Mac.

Devil-Loc and Devil-Loc Deluxe are a SoundToys twist inspired by the classic Shure Level-Loc. These plug-ins add huge sucking compression, grit, dirt, distortion, and take drums (but try it anywhere) to a wonderful hellish nightmare. It’s not for the faint of heart.

Essentially a distorting compressor but so much more, it’s really quite simple but also a bit supernatural. Because the release time of the compression is effected by the input level (like the Level-Loc) it’s a bit hard to predict exactly what will happen the first time you work with it. Luckily with just two knobs, you can find the magic spot for your track fairly quickly and you’ll be going for that sound more and more. Don’t be fooled by it’s simple front panel, this plug-in has a lot more cool sounds than you’d expect out of two knobs. Get crushing kick drums, to almost rhythmic level sweeps with the crazing sucking compression, to blitzed out blasting beat loops. Drive it hard and you get straight hardware sounding break-up and drive. It’s a devil in disguise, and the devil’s in the details, and the devil made us do it and all those other devil references.

For a limited time you can get a free copy of Devil-Loc, as part of a contest.

Check the forums, check FaceBook, check everywhere cause that code gets you the free plug-in and gets you your own sharing code. Then you can give yours to all your friends and they can get it free, too. Plus, each soul you sign up with your code, get’s you closer to earning more free stuff. Free bundles, t-shirts and upgrades to the true master of evil, Devil-Loc Deluxe: Pure Evil Compressor. The deluxe model turns up the heat and takes you to never before achieved levels of madness and horror, and it sounds real cool, or uh, hot

The Devil-Loc contest closes March 31, 2011.

SoundToys Decapitator
SoundToys PanMan

SoundToys has announced the release of SoundToys version 4, an update to the bundle of effect plug-ins for Windows and Mac.

Here’s what you get: SoundToys TDM Effects, and SoundToys Native Effects owners get TWO amazing new plug-ins, our new built-in preset management system, and an exclusive V4 set of presets. That’s the much anticipated Decapitator, analog saturation modeler, and the astounding PanMan rhythmic auto-panner, all for the low upgrade prices of $199.00 for SoundToys TDM Effects, and $99.00 for SoundToys Native Effects. V4 upgrades for single plug-ins also available.

New in SoundToys V4

  • Decapitator Analog Saturation Modeler — Analog saturation has long been the magic mojo that engineers have used as their swiss army knife of mixing. It’s used on drums, bass, vocals guitars, everything. It can be used to beef things up, thin things out, give them some edge, fry them up nice, add a bit of warmth, pull things out of the mix, or even create a signature sound. Subtle to extreme, analog saturation is the golden child of great mixes. That’s why we took our time, bought and listened to all the great analog classics, and painstakingly created that magic for you in Decapitator.
  • PanMan Rhythmic Auto-Panner — PanMan takes the supposedly simple process of moving audio back and forth in the stereo field and gives it that special touch that you’ve come to expect from our twisted minds. It features an over the top range of panning modes to recreate classic analog auto-panners plus some of the cool modes from our other plugs to push it a bit further into the future. With MIDI sync to tempo, preset storage, dynamic control, and automation you get modern innovation alongside the classic features from hard to find vintage analog hardware. Control width, speed, direction and more with the most full featured panner you’ve ever seen.

With the overwhelming response Decapitator received from its introduction at the New York AES in October, we wanted to get it into the hands of our users as quickly as possible. To make this happen, SoundToys has decided to make Decapitator available as a part of its new public beta program, starting immediately.

This program allows users to try out new products from SoundToys and provide important feedback before they are commercially released. It also has the added benefit of providing an extended demo through the holiday season.

Not all products will be available in this program, but more are planned and users who sign up will be notified of new developments in the program.

The Decapitator Public Beta is available for PC and Mac (VST/AU/RTAS, TDM is coming). It requires a valid iLok ID and USB key.

SoundToys introduces Decapitator Analog Saturation Modeling Plug-in at AES

SoundToys

SoundToys has introduced Decapitator, an analog saturation modeling plug-in for PC and Mac.

Sometimes little ideas take on a life of their own, especially at SoundToys. SoundToys users had been loving the “analog” sound of plug-ins like EchoBoy and FilterFreak so much that they asked SoundToys to create a dedicated saturation plug-in. The designers at SoundToys weren’t content to just copy a few bits of code from those popular plug-ins. Instead, they started on a multi-year search for the analog “mojo”, collecting all sorts of classic and obscure mic preamps and console channels, and developing new techniques for simulating the organic character that only comes from a properly aged (and abused) piece of gear.

Now, SoundToys is finally ready to demonstrate the first product of that tone quest — Decapitator. Decapitator models the saturation or distortion created when driving professional analog studio equipment. SoundToys analyzed vintage and modern classics from Neve, API, Ampex, EMI and Thermionic Culture, and more to create accurate models of high-end studio gear. Decapitator creates that highly sought after analog sound from subtle harmonic changes to extreme driven distortion.

Decapitator will be available in the 4th quarter of 2009 for TDM/RTAS/AudioSuite, AudioUnits, and VST. More details and demo versions will be posted at http://www.soundtoys.com/ as they become available.
