Related: , , , Posted in news on Oct 30, 2014 - comment 0 comments

Ghostwave Audio has released version 1.5 of MixRight, a track comparison utility for Native Instruments Reaktor 5.

Ghostwave Audio MixRight

MixRight is a Native Instruments Reaktor 5 ensemble designed as the easiest way to compare your current mix with the reference track of your choice. (.wav and .aiff formats only)

In only one click, you can alternate between the two to compare levels, phase correlation and frequency distribution and therefore find out the necessary adjustments for your current mix.

Changes in MixRight v1.5

  • Updated GUI with more contrast for better legibility.
  • Spectrum analyzer extended to 20 kHz (instead of 14 kHz).
  • Manual revised.
  • Spectrum analyzer zoom default setting which prevented the quietest frequencies from being displayed.
  • Scale on the spectrum analyzer and correlation meter.
  • Scale on the update rate knob.

MixRight is available for purchase for $9.95 USD until November 9th, 2014 (regular $12.95 USD).

Plugin Boutique launches Liquid Notes for Live group buy

Plugin Boutique has launched a group buy for Liquid Notes for Live, a songwriting assistant tool by Re-Compose for editing complex harmonic progressions.

Liquid Notes for Live Group Buy

It offers a controllable range of alternatives for chords and harmonies in singletrack or multitrack MIDI arrangements and makes the theory of harmony fully accessible to you. A powerful harmonic analysis atomizes even complex multitrack songs and detects their various musical elements and their correlations.

Musical adaptation (resynthesis) builds meaningful musical context from various input data (e.g. melodies, bass lines, chords, loops, rhythmic patterns etc.). This information is presented in a simple and clean user interface: Chords appear as rectangular boxes, with a vertical slider and two rotary knobs for changing chord functions, substitutions, and their tensions, respectively.

Liquid Notes for Live will be 50% off once 50 people join the group buy.

Youlean updates Freq-Balancer to V2.0

Related: , , , , , Posted in news on Oct 24, 2014 - comment 1 comment

Youlean has released version 2.0 of Freq-Balancer, a simple tool that will help you with mastering by balancing frequency response of your songs.

Youlean Freq-Balancer

Freq-Balancer analyzes the frequency content of an audio signal and automatically applies an equalizer that evens out the frequency balance towards a curve found on many commercial tracks. When Freq-Balancer analyses audio, it measures the audios frequency content over a period of time. It splits the incoming audio signal into 7 frequency bands. Then it measures and compares the audio levels within each band. Finally it applies EQ to compensate for any uneven frequency balance.

Changes in Freq-Balancer v2.0

  • Changed GUI.
  • Changed display, now shows more accurate representation of internal EQ.
  • Added loudness normalization engine designed to make plugin much easier to use.
  • Added option to switch between different FFT resolutions that could bring better performance on lower end PCs.
  • Added option to change FFT speed.
  • Added performance and memory optimizations.
  • Fixed silence on song start in Sound Forge Pro 11 bug.

The plug-in is available as freeware for Windows (VST).

Related: , , , , , , , , , Posted in news on Oct 20, 2014 - comment 0 comments

Blue Cat Audio has released an update for the Blue Cat’s PatchWork and MB-7 Mixer plug-ins, improving compatibility with third party plug-ins and adding new interoperability features.

Blue Cat's MB-7 Mixer

Both plug-ins can now load more VST and Audio Unit plug-ins (fixing compatibility issues with several plug-ins manufacturers). For improved interoperability between systems, plug-ins’ state are now retained even if the plug-ins are missing, and VST plug-ins can be relocated if moved.

The new PatchWork 1.5 plug-in also supports MIDI FX Audio Units and can be loaded as a MIDI FX in Logic Pro X to quickly build complex MIDI effects chains (full change list below).

Changes in PatchWork v1.5 / MB-7 Mixer v2.4

  • New Features for both plug-ins:
    • Missing VST plug-ins can now be relocated if not found.
    • The plug-in now saves missing plug-ins’ state so that they can be restored later.
  • New Features for Blue Cat’s PatchWork 1.5:
    • The Audio Unit can now be loaded as a MIDI FX in Logic Pro X.
    • MIDI FX Audio Units can now be loaded into the plug-in.
  • Fixes and compatibility improvements for both plug-ins:
    • Fixed issue on Mac when loading sessions created on Windows using VST plug-ins in sub-directories.
    • Fixing compatibility issues with several plug-ins that used to crash when unloaded (Image Line, MeldaProduction, Catanya…).
    • VST Plug-in name is now displayed when loaded from a missing VST shell bundle (instead of just the name of the bundle).
    • (Mac) Fixed random crashes when using keyboard shortcuts in the host application to switch between plug-ins or tracks.
  • Fixes and compatibility improvements for Blue Cat’s PatchWork 1.5:
    • (Mac) Fixed parameters not available for mapping when Audio Unit bridged with SoundRadix’s 32Lives.
    • (Mac) Fixed parameters mapped with wrong range for some Audio Units (u-he, AAS…).
    • (Mac) Fixed parameter changes sent from host not visible in the user interface for some Audio Units (u-he…).
  • Fixes and compatibility improvements for Blue Cat’s MB-7 Mixer 2.4:
    • (Mac) Fixed crash introduced in 2.3 when trying to load missing VST plug-ins.
    • (Mac) Fixed crash after closing the editor of an Audio Unit plug-in loaded with SoundRadix’s 32Lives.

Blue Cat’s PatchWork is available for purchase for 59 EUR / $79 USD. Blue Cat’s MB-7 Mixer costs 99 EUR / $129 USD. Prices excl. VAT.
The update is free for existing customers.

Soundlib updates G-Player to v2.1

Related: , , , , , , Posted in news on Oct 17, 2014 - comment 0 comments

Soundlib has released version 2.1 of G-Player, a Gigastudio file player instrument for Windows and Mac.

Soundlib G-Player

Forget converting and importing with random results. Save time and disk space. G-Player plays all your Gigastudio™ sound libraries without any conversion. G-Player was designed to play the large orchestral sound libraries and supports disk streaming, dimensions, keyswitches and layered instruments.

Changes in G-Player v2.1 features

  • True stereo panning: A user can now precisely adjust the panning of the left and the right channels, or switch the left and the right side. The stereo balance has been kept for compatibility with the previous version.
  • Increased the stack size from 16 to 24: a User can now stack up to 24 Giga instruments per MIDI channel.
  • MIDI port mute buttons: In the standalone version a user can now mute each of the 8 MIDI ports.
  • Direct sound loading: In the previous version, G-Player was loading a project asynchronously when running as a plugin. Some users reported occasional problems due to this way of loading giga files. This new version will load the Giga files immediately when opening the plug-in, which means that when a project is open, all the giga files are loaded and ready to play.
  • Fixed the envelope segment modulation by a MIDI controller.
  • For Mac users: This version is digitally signed, so it will install and run fine with GateKeeper. It has also been tested extensively on OS X Mavericks.

The update is free for all existing users and can be downloaded from the user area at the Soundlib web site.
