Heavyocity Media has announced the release of Punish, a dynamic new FX plugin that is modeled after Heavyocity’s custom analog signal chains, providing control over Compression, Saturation, Transients, EQ, and Limiting.

From subtle warmth to extreme drive and compression, PUNISH injects character and edge into any mix or instrument track.

“PUNISH brings this proprietary effect straight from our line of award-winning virtual instruments into the hands of composers, sound designers, producers, and mix engineers everywhere,” said Neil Goldberg, Co-Founder and Partner, Heavyocity. “PUNISH draws from some of the best modern and vintage analog gear, adding a next-gen workflow, and a stunning new interface.”

PUNISH features three distinct models for both the Compression and Saturation modules, offering vast dynamic range. From smooth Class-A Style Buss compression to fat Tube Saturation — each PUNISH Compression and Saturation model bring their own distinct character, adding analog warmth and bite to each stage of the signal chain. Add in discrete controls for Transients, EQ, and Limiting, and PUNISH delivers Heavyocity’s award-winning sound-shaping capabilities right to your fingertips.

And at the heart of it all is the global PUNISH Knob. Heavyocity has designed an intuitive way to modulate all of the effects’ parameters, quickly and easily bringing character and life into your sounds. With a few simple clicks, the central PUNISH knob becomes a highly-dynamic macro control, capable of any and every degree of PUNISHment.

Punish for Windows and Mac (VST/AU/AAX) costs $249 USD. An introductory 25% discount is available until November 21st, 2016. A free 10-day trial of Punish is also available.
