Stillwell Audio has announced the release of version 3 of its instrument and effect plug-ins for Windows and Mac.
Two years in the making, Version 3 means it’s finally time for Pro Tools users to experience the quality of everything we do at Stillwell Audio, and to enjoy the way we do it. Do you use a VST3 host? Ask no more, because now we’ve got you covered as well.
We have a new website (did you notice?) and *tada* please bid welcome to Broadsword, our newest developer. Of course, by ‘Everything’ we mean ‘not quite everything’, because PsychoDither is not quite up to V3 (stand by for that!) and ‘Microshope’ has been discontinued.

Stillwell Audio has released Bombardier, a buss compressor effect plug-in for Windows and Mac.
Bombardier is our most ambitious project to date – a premium quality buss compressor, tailored for smooth and musical processing of complex audio such as drum groups, vocal stems and your full stereo mix, lending a controllable sense of weight, fluidity and cohesion.
Bombardier gives a nod to the non-linear and frequency-variant subtleties of a wide range of Grade-A hardware buss compressors, and should you wish these can be pushed almost into the realms of a character compressor.
- Due to its RMS compression engine, Bombardier is ideally suited to final mixdown and mastering usage, as well as for those who like to set up buss dynamics first and then mix ‘into’ the buss compressor.
- New and unique ‘bomb’ processing algorithm which, when selected, gives attack and release settings that are effectively instantaneous while yielding exceptionally smooth gain reduction. Bomb mode is sure to become a firm favourite with mastering engineers the world over, but can also give extremely satisfying results in single track and buss applications.
- Five different and highly effective pre-emphasis filter modes vary Bombardier’s response to the frequency spectrum and are key to preserving transparency during full-mix compression.
- Very flexible, offering forward/feedback topologies, variable and automatic release behaviours, sidechain operation, parallel processing and variable gain reduction range limiting.
- Choosing appropriate settings for the task at hand is critical to getting the best out of Bombardier, so a full range of well chosen presets are provided.
Bombardier is available to purchase as an effect plug-in for Windows and Mac (VST/AU) priced at $59 USD. A Reaper-only/non-commercial use license is available for $39 USD.

Schwa has released CMX, a stereo microshifter plug-in for Windows and Mac.
CMX thickens and enhances monophonic audio by doubling the signal and applying small amounts of pitch shift and/or time delay to each side.
This technique is often applied to vocals or lead lines. With a light hand, CMX can add just enough fullness to give a part extra presence in a mix. With a heavier hand, CMX can create a rich and polished “expensive production” sound. The added presence is especially effective in musical styles that make minimal use of reverb.
CMX uses a new, unique pitch identification and shifting algorithm from Schwa that is designed and optimized for small, precise pitch shifts, from one cent to a quarter-tone, with perfect phase coherence and maximum smoothness. You can use CMX on exposed, high-quality vocal tracks with complete confidence.
Schwa CMX is available for Windows and Mac (VST/AU) for $50 USD. A Reaper-only, personal use license is available for $30 USD.
Stillwell Audio has also recently released Windows x64 installers for Schwa Olga, Tin Man, Schope, and Bitter.
