Voxengo updates TransGainer effect plugin to v1.6

Related: , , , , Posted in news on Apr 04, 2014 - comment 0 comments

Voxengo has released version 1.6 of its TransGainer, an effect plug-in that implements an audio signal envelope adjustment algorithm that reacts on transients rather than on a signal’s loudness level.

Voxengo Transgainer

TransGainer allows you to specify positive or negative gain adjustment for a sound’s transient stage. You can also choose an expected average time between transients and transient threshold level so that the algorithm delivers you the most precise results possible. With the help of TransGainer you can pass the border from good to excellent audio recordings.

This updated version 1.6 introduces a new “Precise B” algorithm which is better suited for mix and bus (broadband) processing.

Transgainer for Windows and Mac (VST/AU) is available for purchase for $79.95 USD.

RSPE Audio launches No Brainer Deal (formerly audioMIDI.com No Brainer Deal)

RSPE Audio Solutions has teamed up with Metric Halo to offer two of their most popular plugins, ChannelStrip 3 and TransientControl, for the No Brainer Deal price of $30 each (retail $129 – over 75% off) or $45 for both (retail $258 – over 80% off).

RSPE Audio Metric Halo ChannelStrip 3

Channelstrip 3, the newest version Metric Halo’s best-selling and most feature rich plugin, is the recognized leader in console style channel stri­p audio processing for digital audio workstations. As the first plug-in to offer the combination of exceptional audio quality, incredible DSP efficiency and a comprehensive user interface, ChannelStrip lets users work as efficiently and interactively as they would with a dedicated, world-class mixing console.

TransientControl, Metric Halo’s easiest-to-use and highly desirable plugin, allows you to modify dynamics in ways that aren’t possible with traditional compressors. You can directly change the transient (“attack”) and sustain of your audio; this allows you to make your tracks more punchy, or smooth them out so they sit in a mix.

Don’t miss out! This is the only time on record these plug-ins will be available at these blow-out prices anywhere in the world.

The Metric Halo No Brainer Deal is available for purchase via electronic serial number until midnight April 30, 2014, exclusively from www.rspeaudio.com.

Advanced Audiowaves updates Track Align Pro to v1.2.0

Advanced Waves has released version 1.2.0 of Track Align Pro, a VST plug-in for Mac allowing to time align an audio track to a reference one in real-time.

Advanced Audiowaves Track Align Pro

TAP processing is looking at each sample of the incoming audio signal and find its position in relation to the side-chain reference track exactly like any audio engineer would do by zooming inside the audio waveforms. But instead of just looking to the first samples or first audio transients to save time, TAP processes the input audio along the full length of the track in order to keep it always aligned.

Changes in Track Align Pro v1.2.0

  • Steinberg Cubase 7.0.6 & Nuendo 6.0.6 official support.
  • Mac OS X 10.9 Mavericks ready.
  • Lastest detection engine refinements.
  • Improved audio signal discrimination between similar and unrelated audio signals.
  • New side-chain led red state when audio signal is unrelated to audio input.
  • Fix wrong audio buffer at end of audio clips on silent or inactive audio track.
  • Improved delay changes when audio track is silent or inactive.
  • Graphical user interface code redesign for better performance.
  • Fix initial graphical user interface state.
  • Fix possible lock of graphical user interface.
  • Fix – known issue – graphical user interface crash when closing a project.
  • Latest iLok protection and activation.

Track Align Pro for Mac (VST) is available to purchase for 219 EUR. Requires iLok.

Computer Music 197 freebie: SKnote Snap transient exciter

SKnote Snap

Computer Music has announced that its latest magazine includes a free copy of SKnote Snap, a transient exciter plug-in for Windows and Mac.

Brighten or dull the attack and sustain of your sounds with Snap, a unique transient exciter plugin created exclusively for CM by software perfectionists SKnote. Their other analogue-flavoured creations include the console-emulating Stripbus, tape saturator Roundtone, and the mighty MCAudioLab EQ1passive equaliser.

Snap detects your incoming transients (or attack) and allows you to apply two intelligently-linked filters to your signal. You can add brightness to a snare or hi-hat’s crack, tame a drum group’s spikiness, or soften a piano’s sustain without blunting its attack.

SKnote Snap features

  • ‘Hit’ and ‘Body’ knobs to treat attack and/or sustain for precise dynamic sculpting.
  • Brighten or dull transients independently of the signal’s sustain.
  • Great for shaping drums, percussion, guitars, groups or mixes.
  • Transient metering and value readouts.
  • Clear, compact interface.
  • 32-/64-bit PC VST.
  • 32-/64-bit Mac AU/VST.

The plugin is included with Computer Music 197 (and onwards).
