db audioware updates Sidechain Compressor & Sidechain Gate to v2.0

db audioware has released version 2.0 of Sidechain Compressor and Sidechain Gate, two effect plug-ins for Windows and Mac.

db audioware Sidechain Compressor

Sidechain Compressor is a flexible VST/AU compressor plug-in. It can be used as a regular channel strip compressor for clean crisp compression & limiting across a wide range of mixing jobs (e.g. adding punch to drum tracks or presence to vocals). For additional flexibility, the sidechain controls (Lo Cut/Hi Cut/Shape) let you customise the compression response.

Sidechain Gate lets you perform clever mixing techniques, by using a source track to gate a destination track. For example, you can use a complex hi-hat pattern in one track to rhythmically gate a synth pad in another track. Or simplify a busy bass guitar by gating it from a kick drum track (so the bass guitar is only heard when the kick drum sounds).

Changes in Sidechain Compressor & Gate v2.0

  • 64-bit VST and Audio Unit plug-in support (for hosts such as Logic Pro X, Cubase, Reaper).
  • Easier licensing (challenge/response has been replaced with a simple serial number).
  • A new sidechaining mechanism (using 4 inputs) in addition to the existing Universal Sidechain feature (Requires a host which supports multi input plug-ins such as Reaper).
  • Support for the latest OS X and Windows operating systems.

Sidechain Compressor and Sidechain Gate are available for purchase for $79 USD and $59 USD respectively. Existing owners of previous versions of these plug-ins can upgrade for $20 USD.

Manx releases SJ-2 synthesizer plugin

Related: , , , , Posted in news on Aug 28, 2014 - comment 0 comments

Manx has announced the release of SJ-2, a synthesizer instrument for Windows.

Manx SJ-2

Of all the different kinds of vintage hardware synthesizers, our favourite has to be the wave of programmable polysynths which appeared during the eighties, such as the Jupiter 8 and the MJS-80 rack-mount. It wasn’t just the breakthroughs of polyphony & patch recall that made these instruments popular – they also have a distinctive sound which was quite magical. We’re very proud to present the SJ-2 as our own tribute to these awesome, IC based beasts!

It’s no accident that the SJ-2 sounds the way it does – it features several layers of audio processing ‘algorithms’ designed to reproduce subtle audio nuances that you’ll find in analog synthesisers. This ‘no stone left unturned’ approach is, of course, computationally expensive and depending on patch settings, your CPU may take a hammering. Rest assured that we have tried to minimize CPU use as much as possible, spending many hours on optimisation.

SJ-2 features

  • 6 note polyphonic, with double and unison modes..
  • Filter and envelope technologies exclusive to Manx.
  • Midi Learn for all parameters.
  • Patch memory system with full library.
  • Independent PWM lfos, velocity sensitivity, generous modulation routings and much more…

SJ-2 for Windows (VST) is available for purchase for the introductory price of $69 USD.

FabFilter releases Pro-Q 2 equalizer plugin

Related: , , , , , , , Posted in news on Aug 28, 2014 - comment 0 comments

FabFilter has released Pro-Q 2, an updated version of its equalizer effect plug-in for Windows and Mac.

FabFilter Pro-Q 2
New features — such as Full Screen mode, unique Natural Phase processing, Auto Gain, Spectrum Grab, Gain-Q interaction, and slope support for all filter types — make Pro-Q 2 a cut above its predecessor in every way, while staying true to the original vision of combining high sound quality with unsurpassed interface workflow.

Completely redesigned EQ engine

For Pro-Q 2, FabFilter has completely redesigned the internal filter engine from the ground up — not only improving the existing Zero Latency and Linear Phase processing modes, but also introducing a unique Natural Phase mode. Besides perfectly matching the magnitude response of analog EQ’ing, Natural Phase also closely matches the analog phase response, without introducing noticeable pre-ring or a long latency. Last but not least, FabFilter Pro-Q 2 is more than twice as CPU-efficient as its predecessor.

Universal filter slope support

Very steep filter slopes of up to 96 dB/octave are now available, and, uniquely, FabFilter Pro-Q 2 lets users change the slope of any filter type — not just the usual Low/High Cut filters. This makes it possible to create super-narrow bell filters, very steep or gently sloping shelves, and more. In addition to the existing Bell, Low/High Shelf, Low/High Cut, and Notch filters, Pro-Q 2 also features new Band-Pass and Tilt Shelf filter types.

More interface innovations

Furthermore, FabFilter Pro-Q 2 is boosted by an abundance of user interface innovations. Spectrum Grab enables users to directly adjust peaks in the real-time spectrum analyzer display. Pro-Q 2 offers flexible interface resizing, in addition to a Full Screen mode that makes it easier than ever to do ultra-precise adjustments. EQ Match lets users match the spectrum of another track in just a few seconds. All this power is neatly integrated into a gorgeous, uncluttered interface that lets users focus freely on music and workflow.

Original and trailblazing

Of course, Pro-Q 2 features everything that was great about the original Pro-Q — up to 24 EQ bands, innovative interface with unsurpassed workflow and multi-band selection, per-channel EQ’ing in L/R or M/S mode, real-time spectrum analyzer, intelligent solo mode, double-click text entry, stereo/mono plug-ins, Pro Tools hardware surface support — as well as all the trailblazing FabFilter bells and whistles that users have come to expect and love — perfectly fine-tuned knobs and controllers, GPU-powered graphics acceleration, interactive MIDI Learn, undo/redo and A/B switch, Smart Parameter Interpolation for smooth parameter transitions, an extensive help file with interactive help hints, sample-accurate automation, advanced optimization, and more.

New in Pro-Q 2

  • Different interface sizes and additional Full Screen mode.
  • Operates in zero latency mode, linear phase mode with adjustable latency or the unique Natural Phase mode.
  • Spectrum Grab: just grab and adjust a peak in the real-time spectrum analyzer right away!.
  • Filter shapes: Bell, Notch, High/Low Shelf, High/Low Cut, Band Pass, Tilt Shelf.
  • Universal filter slope support for all filter types, up to 96 dB/oct.
  • EQ Match feature to automatically match the spectrum of another track via the side-chain input.
  • Phase Invert option to change polarity.
  • Highly improved CPU optimization: Pro-Q 2 uses less memory and is more than twice as efficient as its predecessor!.
  • Optional Gain-Q interaction.
  • Auto Gain and Gain Scale.
  • Built-in spectrum analyzer with Pre-EQ, Post-EQ and SC modes, adjustable range, speed, resolution, tilt and freeze.
  • Optional piano roll display to quantize EQ frequencies to musical notes.
  • Large output level meter with peak level readout.

FabFilter Pro-Q 2 for Windows and Mac (VST/AU/RTAS/AAX/AudioSuite) is available for purchase for 149 EUR/$199 USD/£124 GBP. Bundles with FabFilter Pro-Q 2 and other FabFilter plug-ins are also available. Existing FabFilter customers can purchase or upgrade to Pro-Q 2 with a discount from their online user accounts.
