Variety Of Sound announces Rescue Mk2

Variety Of Sound

Variety Of Sound has announced Rescue Mk2, an update to the envelope dependent signal amplification and analog style saturation in a mid/side configuration

While the initial Rescue implementation was a little bit quirky concerning transient handling, I’ve managed to developed a ‘stateful’ approach over the last years which turned out to be way smoother not only in terms of transient response but also in terms of signal saturation. All this comes down now and there is almost nothing to change to the original concept other than the underlying technology which had been emerged and improved.

Rescue MK2 is going to offer transient handling ‘smooth like cake’, stateful saturation and an authentic analog signal path emulation 2.0. Rescue MK2 maintains a super realistic stereo image, increases depth perception and works great as both, mixing tool and summing on the 2-bus. The new Rescue version will be available by end of January as a freeware VST plug-in.

Native Instruments releases improved Vintage Compressors and Transient Master plug-ins + Half-Price Special

Native Instruments has announced the rerelease of its VINTAGE COMPRESSORS and TRANSIENT MASTER plugins, which feature a sleek new user interfaces, and can now be used as stand-alone plug-ins in any DAW.

Native Instruments Vintage Compressors

VINTAGE COMPRESSORS are painstakingly accurate emulations of three legendary compressors found in recording studios worldwide. Each has been created by NI and Softube to deliver the true sound of the original – with additional sidechain inputs and dry controls for parallel compression. The VC 160 and VC 2A also feature a Low-Cut dial for avoiding overly hard compression. Producers can explore a wide range of modern, creative compression techniques with the beloved sound of classic studio equipment. Each compressor can be purchased separately or as part of the VINTAGE COMPRESSORS bundle.

The VC 2A is based on a legendary electro-optical tube compressor/limiter. Its medium-to-slow auto-release setting makes it especially suitable for adding smooth presence and punch to drums, vocals or the stereo bus. The VC 160 is based on a studio staple with a voltagecontrolled design. This compressor provides extremely-fast signal detection – perfect for drums and any instrument where adding punch and edge is essential. The VC 76 recreates a popular FET compressor renowned for its super-fast attack and unique ‘All Button Mode’. Versatile enough for use on a wide range of sound sources, its streamlined control panel means this extremely precise, studio tool is also extremely intuitive.

Native Instruments Transient Master

TRANSIENT MASTER is a unique envelope shaper providing users with the ability to place instruments – especially drums and percussion – in the mix, independent of compression and EQ settings. This deceptively simple tool is based on a popular standard used as a secret weapon in many studios.

From now until November 27, individual plug-ins are $59.50 USD/49.50 EUR each (regular $119 USD/99 EUR), and the Vintage Compressors bundle costs $114.50 USD/99.50 EUR (regular $229 USD/199 EUR).

It delivers all the character of an analog signal path and provides what digital processing usually is hard pushed to, including a rich low-end experience and that vibrant ‘expensive’ top-end.

Thrillseeker XTC features

  • Three parallel coupled equalizers containing three stateful saturators.
  • Each based on a sophisticated non-linear and frequency dependent algorithm with memory.
  • Pre-selected frequency ranges
    • LOW band: 70-450Hz
    • MID band: 0.8-5kHz
    • AIR band: 3.2-18kHz
  • Two flavors included with different internal gain-staging
    • Black version to mix at rather conservative levels around -18dB RMS.
    • Blue version to mix towards hotter target levels.
  • Additional analog signal path idiosyncrasies modelled.
  • Classic VU style metering as well as loudness unit measurements based on ITU-R BS.1770.
  • Mix control for dry/wet mixing and output level control.
  • Win32 / VST compatible plug-in with SSE2 assembler optimized signal path.
  • Tested and known to work in many VST hosts as well as running jbridge wrapped in 64bit hosts.

The Thrillseeker XTC plugin for Windows (VST) is available from KVR Audio.

FXpansion has announced the release of its DCAM EnvShaper Rack Extension, a processor for controlling transients in Propellerhead’s Reason music production software.

Front and back panel of the DCAM EnvShaper Rack Extension for Reason.

DCAM EnvShaper takes a different approach to controlling dynamics than conventional compressors. It allows you to adjust the attack and sustain portions of transients within a signal. The technique has all kinds of uses such as increasing the punch of attacks or the apparent size of a sound’s reverb, or for problem-solving tasks like reducing bleed levels in drum mics without using a noise gate.

DCAM EnvShaper also includes a modelled saturation circuit and control over its response to transients of different speeds, providing additional flexibility and creative possibilities.

The Rack Extension is now available to purchase for $29 USD / 25 EUR inc. VAT.
