Variety Of Sound releases ThrillseekerLA

Variety Of Sound has released ThrillseekerLA, a digital stereo leveling amplifier with truly analog qualities.

ThrillseekerLA not only introduces way smooth gain riding capabilities but first and foremost features a non-linear amplifier stage which is based on a non-linearity with memory yielding creamy signal coloration duties

ThrillseekerLA features

  • Sophisticated and deep gain riding full of musical character and attitude but with virtually no inter-modulation (IM) distortion artifacts.
  • Feedback compression design w/o any samplerate based delay in the loop.
  • Classic input level driven two knob design with additional manual attack and release time interventions.
  • Highly program dependent envelope timing adoption offering attack times ranging from “instantaneously” up to around 100ms and release times from 30ms up to several seconds.
  • Mix level switch to adopt the plug-ins internal gain staging to mixing levels at around -18dBFS.
  • Custom SC filter option to attenuate the SC bass response while slightly boosting the HF spectrum.
  • Additional one pole (6dB per octave) SC low-cut filter adjustable from 20 to 500Hz.
  • External sidechain support.
  • Switchable Input/GR/Output metering display.
  • Variable compression range control from 0 to 100%

ThrillseekerLA for Windows (VST) is available as freeware.

Variety of Sound announces “Thrillseeker” audio plug-in series

Variety of Sound

Variety of Sound has announced Thrillseeker, a new series of audio plug-ins.

The brand new and upcoming Variety of Sound Thrillseeker audio plug-ins series is going to be a plug-in collection premiering Stateful Saturation which is a sophisticated DSP core system for musical harmonic distortion generation based on authentic and truly stateful non-linear models.

Stateful Saturation takes advantage of some sought after analog qualities and preserves them accurately during their transfer right into the digital domain:

  • high frequency shimmer and sheen without digital harshness
  • depth and ’3d’ imaging side effects before distortion itself becomes apparent
  • audio transient dynamics that remains vibrant and alive
  • natural and impressive bass response

Stateful Saturation opens the door for quite a number of amazing applications ranging from smooth harmonic exciters up to convincing amplifier effects and the DSP core can easily be set in context whether it’s a compressor output stage or a preamplifier circuit, just to name the two.

The first plug-in in the series will be opto-electric circuit model ThrillseekerLA, an audio leveling amplifier with amazing analog like qualities.

It offers sophisticated and deep gain riding full of musical character and attitude but with virtually no inter-modulation (IM) distortion artifacts!

Variety Of Sound preFIX

Variety Of Sound has announced preFIX, a pre-mixing and audio alignment tool for Windows.

The upcoming preFIX audio plug-in was originally designed to meet the recording engineers needs and is all about audio alignment tasks: fix all that stuff that can’t be fixed outside the box (anymore) and do that fast and with highest quality right before the mixing starts itself.

preFIX is a pre-mixing and audio alignment tool which typically takes place upfront the mixing process. It provides a clever tool set to clean-up, fix and align audio tracks (typically taken from recordings) concerning overall frequency correction, phase alignment, spatial stereo field corrections and routing.
