Plugin Alliance tops Avid AAX Pack plug-in count and announces updates

Plugin Alliance has announced that it has contributed six multi-format (including AAX DSP/AAX Native) plug-ins to Avid’s recently-released AAX Pack, making it the main contributor to this 18-plug-in-strong bundle.

The AAX (Avid Audio eXtension) plug-in format was launched last year alongside Pro Tools 10 to provide better workflows and sound parity when sharing sessions between DSP-accelerated and native-based Pro Tools systems; AAX Pack offers Pro Tools|HDX and Pro Tools|HD native owners running Pro Tools 10 software a must-have collection of superior-sounding, studio-essential AAX plug-ins from the world’s leading plug-in providers, including six of the best from Plugin Alliance.

SPL intros Analog Elemental Series and MasterBay S

Sound Performance Lab has announced the Analog Elemental Series and MasterBay S, two new products SPL will be showcasing at the Musikmesse.

Analog Elemental Series: 13 new products, one concept

The 13 different Analog Elemental units result from the mix of six different preamps and processing modules. One single product combines two of the following modules in a 1U 19-inch rack:

  • Premium Microphone Preamplifier
  • Preference Microphone Preamplifier
  • Transient Designer
  • TwinTube Tube Saturation Processor
  • Dual-Band De-Esser
  • DynaMaxx Compressor/Limiter
SPL Analog Elemental Series (Premium Preamp / DynaMaxx)
SPL Analog Elemental Series – Premium Preamp / DynaMaxx

This series was conceived to meet two very popular demands our customers have expressed throughout the years: on the one hand it offers the possibility to have the exceptional preamps of the RackPack modular series in the traditional 19-inch format; while, on the other hand, it offers perfect front end and processing possibilities for any situation ranging from pure preamplification to specific processing needs for vocals and instruments ― all combinations are readily available.

MasterBay S: The S-Class Patchbay

When it comes to mastering, a patchbay is not always enough: even for experienced users a simple comparison of different processors or processing paths can become a headache.

SPL MasterBay S
SPL MasterBay S

The new MasterBay S can manage up to four stereo processors comfortably and its fascinating possibilities allow you to get the best results out of your equipment:

  • Four switchable inserts
  • Parallel Mix function
  • Automatic A/B comparison with freely selectable intervals
  • Loudness compensation
  • Trim potentiometers for all input and output levels
  • Big level knob for dynamic fading
  • Always reduces signal conversion to the minimum

SPL will launch these new products at the Musikmesse in Frankfurt, Germany, March 21-24, 2012 (Stand B 82 in Hall 5.1).

Plugin Alliance has announced new plugins from SPL and Noveltech, to be released via the Plugin Alliance platform.

Plugin Alliance SPL and Noveltech preview

If you ask professionals about the best choice for an easy fix for the most common vocal problem you will most likely hear about the SPL De-Esser. We’re releasing Analog Code plugin emulations of BOTH versions, the Classic 9629 and the new RackPack Dual-Band De-Esser this month. We even added M/S modes for mastering purposes.

Info about the SPL De-Esser hardware: please click here.

The NOVELTECH Character plugin was available exclusively for the discontinued TC POWERCORE platform so far. A new cooperation between the Plugin Alliance and Noveltech (from Finland) will now make this innovative plugin available for all native formats and TDM / VENUE systems. Right now the plugin is undergoing some small adjustments and a facelift for a great new look (see the picture above, showing the work in progress). Please stay tuned.

The Character plugin uses Noveltech’s IAF (Intelligent Adaptive Filtering) technology, which affects both the frequency response and dynamic properties of the input material in a highly time varying sense. Offering results you simply cannot achieve with traditional EQ or compression.

Info about Noveltech’s Character plugin: please click here.

The new plug-ins will be available from Plugin Alliance this March.

Plugin Alliance Giveaway: The BIG 4 Bundle

Plugin Alliance

Dirk Ulrich of Brainworx recently launched the Plugin Alliance, a one-stop shop for several plug-in developers.

These currently include Maag Audio, Elysia, SPL, Vertigo, Brainworx, with plug-ins from Millenia, Chandler, Neve, and Charter Oak to be expected in 2012.

Easy license management, hassle-free installation, great sound and reliability. One license file for all your plugins, that´s it.

While I do use a few plug-ins that require a hardware dongle, I totally prefer not having to use them. I think it’s pretty exciting Plugin Alliance has created this software based system for managing all licenses of Plugin Alliance plug-ins in one place.

If you are interested in checking out how all this works, just head on over to the Plugin Alliance website and get some (or all) of the free plug-ins from Elysia (niveau filter), SPL (Free Ranger), and Brainworx (bx_cleansweep V2 & bx_solo).

But wait, there’s more!
