Jünger Audio & Flux announce Level Magic plugin

Jünger Audio has announced that in a partnership collaboration with Flux, its renowned loudness management algorithm is to be released as Level Magic, a software tool supporting all major DAW platforms (AU/VST/AAX/AS) for both Real Time and Offline (AudioSuite) processing in 32 & 64 bits under both Windows and Mac OS X.

Level Magic

As a result of a joint engineering venture, Jünger Audio and Flux are pleased to announce Level Magic for the first time in a software format. Developed and enhanced over several years, Level Magic is a comprehensive loudness measurement, correction and management algorithm designed to ensure compliance with all current worldwide loudness standards.

Based on the underlying ITU-­-R BS.1770(-­-1/2/3) principle, Level Magic provides compatibility with EBU R128, ATSC A/85, ARIB TR-­-B32, FREE TV OP-­-59 and Portaria 354.

Designed to be audibly transparent, Level Magic utilises a proprietary multi-­-loop approach comprising of three essential elements in parallel to measure, and if necessary correct, out of specification audio. An AGC section controls slower changing levels over time whilst a fast acting transient processor catches inaudible high frequency overshoots that may otherwise cause detrimental effects in downstream processing or coding.

A brickwall filter provides effective True Peak limiting using a 2ms look-­-ahead to capture any intersample peaks. The resultant gain changing signal is a combination of all three elements.

The Level Magic algorithm is highly adaptive to the structure of the incoming audio and requires only a small number of parameters to be set by the user. The result is audio compliant with the selected standard but free of any unwanted artefacts such as pumping, breathing or distortion.

All major DAW platforms are supported (AU/VST/AAX/AS) for both Real Time and Offline (AudioSuite) processing in 32 & 64 bits under both Windows and Mac OS X. Supported audio I/O formats include Mono, Stereo and Multichannel 5.1.

Peter Pörs, Jünger Audio Managing Director said, “We are delighted to have worked with Flux on this exciting new development. As the industry continues to demand and adopt software based solutions, we are proud to now be able to offer all the proven and tested benefits of Level Magic to those working in the Digital Audio Workstation environment”. He added, “This software tool is the perfect complement to our line up of hardware based real-­-time processors and will position us well for further expansion into the audio production workflow market.”

Speaking on behalf of Flux, CEO Gael Martinet commented, “With the combined experience of Flux:: and Jünger, we believe this collaboration to be a perfect match between two companies from two different parts of the industry, united by a passion for extraordinary audio products. Level Magic is a great addition to our current product range, meeting the growing demand for comprehensive loudness correction processors on the audio software market.”

Level Magic will be available in Q1 2015.

Detunized releases Room Tones – Industrial Building 4 channel surround

Detunized Room Tones - Industrial Building

Detunized has announced the release of Room Tones – Industrial Building, a new sample library featuring atmospheric 4 channel surround ambiences recorded with a 60 cm IRT cross.

The recordings were gathered in a 1980s Industrial Building near Dresden (Germany) and took place on a stormy and rainy Sunday. Due to the blank surfaces inside the building, thin single-glass windows and large air shafts, the weather elements got massively amplified by walls and floors.

Additionally the rain water pipes are placed inside the building which caused a constant sound of flowing water. Also the sound of the central heating was clearly perceptible throughout the entire building.

Room Tones – Industrial Building features

  • BWAV HD (full version) 38 EUR: 19 scenes, 38 stereo BWAV files, 3+ minutes each, 24 Bit/96 kHz, embedded metadata, 4.2 GB.
  • BWAV Universal (light version) 15 EUR: 15 stereo BWAV files, 2+ minutes each, 24 Bit/48 kHz, embedded metadata, 530 MB.
  • Live Pack 15 EUR: 15 Clips/Instrument Racks, 1 set, 530 MB. Requires Live 8/9.

IOSONO Proximity

Steinberg has released version 6.5.35 of Nuendo, the audio post-production software.

Besides extensive product maintenance for the AAF import and export filter as well as new AAF functionality, this update provides full support for PROXIMITY, the upcoming game audio surround technology by IOSONO/Barco.

PROXIMITY game audio technology

IOSONO PROXIMITY is a new audio technology standard that “raises the gaming experience to the next level of realism”. PROXIMITY ensures a highly accurate localization of game sounds by bringing sound effects and dialog into the inner circle of a surround field. Sounds come closer with depth, extending into the room from the speakers all the way to the listener’s position. For sound designers, PROXIMITY is a powerful new tool in their content creation toolbox, realizing great effects with only little effort. Through the integration into Nuendo, PROXIMITY technology seamlessly slips into existing workflows for game sound design.

Fully integrated with Nuendo 6.5.35

Nuendo 6.5.35 provides full support for the PROXIMITY technology by updating the integrated surround panner Anymix Pro to the Anymix Pro PROXIMITY version. As soon as Anymix Pro is used with a PROXIMITY bus inside Nuendo, it turns into a command center for PROXIMITY game sound production by offering PROXIMITY effects and control parameters.
