LVC-Audio Giveaway – Win one of 5 effect plugins

LVC-Audio is offering rekkerd.org readers a chance to win 1 of 5 free copies of any of its paid effect plug-ins for Windows and Mac.

LVC-Audio ClipShifter

ClipShifter 2 is a wave-shaping audio plugin that functions like a clipping-style limiter.

It provides enough user controls to be useful in all mixing stages: from distorting basses and drums, to maximizing mix buses and warming-up overall mixes.

The sonic characteristics of the clipping distortion can be altered from hard, brickwall-style clipping, to softer saturation with compression.

LVC-Audio Transector

Transector is an aggressive transient-designing audio plugin, used to attenuate various transient qualities of an audio signal.

Use it to boost the initial attack of various instruments, such as adding more crack to a snare or kick drum. Simultaneously, you can use Transector to alter the decaying portion of audio.

This is useful in many situations, such as decreasing the decay of a vocal track, or reducing to amount of room ambiance in drum tracking.

LVC-Audio HotPhuzz

HotPhuzz is a saturation designer plugin.

It is a creative tool that specializes in the creation of distinct saturation tones. HotPhuzz uses a multiband distortion process to create vintage, modern, and unique saturation effects.

Although HotPhuzz can be pushed into over distortion, it excels at creating more moderate saturation sounds. You can call the sounds whatever terms you like, but it still sounds good.

LVC-Audio PreAMPed

PreAMPed is an audio plugin that recreates many of the qualities of analog preamplifiers.

This includes subtle EQ response curves, low- and high- frequency saturation, differences between left and right signals, crosstalk, noise, transformer/coil impulse response, and saturation and EQ changes due to gain changes.

LVC-Audio TonedPLUS

TonedPLUS is a specialized tone shaping plugin with selectable analog modeling.

Expanding on the concept of the free plugin Toned, TonedPLUS is designed primarily for use in the mastering process or on two-track audio busses.

TonedPLUS uses two distinct equalization processes: a three-band tone-shaping matrix, and a specially designed high pass (HP) filter.

For a change to win one of these plug-ins, simply leave a comment below and tell us which plug-in you would like to win.

The deadline for entering the giveaway is October 31st, 2014, 12.00pm. The winners will be chosen randomly and notified shortly after.

Good luck!

Youlean updates Freq-Balancer to V2.0

Related: , , , , , Posted in news on Oct 24, 2014 - comment 0 comments

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 24, 2014 - comment 0 comments

Loomer has released version 1.7.17 of Aspect, a synthesizer instrument for Windows, Mac and Linux.

Loomer Aspect

Aspect is a 32-note polyphonic software instrument that combines a great-sounding, powerful synthesis engine, with a flexible semi-modular architecture and unparalleled ease of use. The core of Aspect’s superb sound are two analog modeled oscillators, each capable of producing a powerful selection of raw waveforms, and dual filters that can be routed in series, in parallel, or even blended into unique combinations.

Changes in Aspect v1.7.17

  • New: AAX 64-bit Native plug-ins for Windows and Mac OS X.
  • Fixed (Mac OS X VST): UI now renders correctly on Mac OS X 10.10 Yosemite.
  • Fixed: Polyphonic aftertouch now works correctly for all presets.
  • Feature: Keyboard entry of rotary parameter values. Rotary controls can now be typed directly into by clicking on the text value below the control.
  • Improvement: Improved performance on real-time and very low-latency systems.
  • Improvement (Windows): The 32-bit and 64-bit VST plug-ins are now installed as separate components. You can choose which one (s) to install, as well as selecting different install folders for each architecture.
  • Feature (Linux): Added “Show Directory” to the preset browser, which will will reveal the selected preset directory in your window manager.
  • Improvement (Mac OS X): Installer and all installed components are now signed in compliance with Mac OS X’s Gatekeeper system.
  • Improvement: Significantly improved UI response speed; reduced CPU usage when parameters are automated whilst the UI is open.
  • Improvement (Linux): Presets and configuration files are now located to comply with the XDG Base Directory Specification. Older installations will still use any existing preset library location to maintain backwards compatibility.
  • Fixed (Mac OS X Audio Unit): Fixed minor memory leak in parameter names.

Aspect is available for purchase for £65 GBP (excl. VAT).

Little Endian updates SpectrumWorx to v2.9.4

Little Endian SpectrumWorx

Little Endian has released version 2.9.4 of SpectrumWorx, a sound mangling plug-in for Windows and Mac.

SpectrumWorx is a modular effect processor that works exclusively in the frequency domain. Two things make SpectrumWorx vastly different from other effects processors:

– Ability to manipulate the frequency domain, and
– Modularity.

Changes in SpectrumWorx v2.9.4

  • Added:
    • “User’s guide” button in the About page.
    • New image for LFO controlled knobs when automatic knob updating is turned off.
  • Improved:
    • Undo/redo and VST program changing behaviour and performance (YMMV depending on the host).
    • Minor phase vocoder phase coherence improvement in certain edge cases.
    • Minor overall performance improvements.
    • VST: dynamic automated parameter list functionality (YMMV depending on the host – works nicely with the latest Reaper).
  • Fixed:
    • LFOs for shared module parameters not getting updated with tempo or time signature changes.
    • Frequency range control:
      • Control name not displayed.
      • Wrong control name displayed (Start instead of Stop and vice verse).
      • Rare crashes while manually operating the control.
    • Crashes when parsing licences with non-ASCII or “special” characters.
    • (PVD) PitchMagnet target frequency parameter unnecessarily quantized (again).
    • Broken Ableton Live undo history (partially fixed – still works properly only for “configured” parameters).
    • Appearance on scaled and/or “high DPI” displays.
    • AU:
      • Automation of power-of-two parameters (e.g. DFT size and overlap factor).
      • Host-initiated channel count changes.
      • Validation failure in 32-bit mode under OS X 10.9 Mavericks.
      • Random crashes.
    • VST:
      • Mono output under Ableton Live.
      • OS X 32-bit: auxiliary windows not following the main window.

SpectrumWorx is available to purchase for $119 USD for a single format, or $149 USD for the bundle of formats.

Acon Digital Multiply

Acon Digital Multiply is a free and versatile chorus effect with a unique twist. Each simulated voice is processed with a phase randomizing filter so that unpleasant comb filter effects are avoided.

Changes in Multiply v1.1

  • CPU optimizations.
  • Fixed audio glitches when used as zero latency plug-in in FL Studio.
  • Added new level lock button to lock relation between dry and effect levels.
  • Fixed incorrect folder for uninstall data in Windows installers.
  • Control highlighting of automated parameters in Pro Tools.
