Wire Grind has launched Doffset, a free DC offset correction effect plug-in for Windows.
Audio signals often contain DC offset. DC offset is often not easy to recognize when using an audio editor. Offset correction can reduce the magnitude of a signal while maintaining the loudness. This is a potentially useful trick when mastering a track or when fighting in the loudness wars.
Doffset is specially designed to minimize any coloration to the signal and, at the same time, quickly adjust the signal to remove any DC offset. Doffset offers three modes of operation, each giving a slightly different trade-off between bass response and zero DC convergence time.
Doffset is available to download for Windows (32/64-bit VST2 & VST3).

HoRNet has announced the release of SongKey, a key detector utility plug-in for Windows and Mac.
HoRNet SongKey is a key detector, SongKey works in real time analyzing a polyphonic audio stream (usually a song) and thanks to some advanced artificial intelligence algorithms identifies in which key the song is composed.
Since the brain inside SongKey tries to “guess” the correct key, the three more probable keys are shown together with a confidence level for each key. SongKey also displays a “note profile” for the song showing which notes are played the most.
SongKey is very useful in those situation in which you don’t have an instrument at hand to find out the key of a song you are working on or if you are a DJ and want to make a mash up but you don’t know in which key a song is written.
- Artificial Intelligence driven key identification.
- Confidence display for each found key.
- Note profile display.
- Mac OS X (>=10.5 Intel only) and Windows support.
- 64-bit compatibility both on Mac and Windows.
- Audio Units VST2.4, VST3 and RTAS format.
SongKey is available for purchase for 9.90 EUR.
