HoRNet Plugins has announced the release of a new audio plugin designed by the Italian engineer Antonio Porcelli. HoRNet SAMP resolves one of “problems” that engineers face when approaching the with Dolby Atmos mixes format: there is no master bus.

This big difference with conventional stereo mixes makes it impossible do to any of the classic adjustment you do on a stereo mix. Imagine you have 128 different tracks and you want to lift the “highs”, you should go one by one and adjust the EQ, SAMP resolves this issue by providing four classic master bus processors that are linked together, so a change on an instance of SAMP is reflected on every other instance, simultaneously.

Packaged into a single plugin you can find: an equalizer (using the same technology found in our TotalEQ) a compressor (using the same technology of our SyncPressor) a clipper and a limiter (using the same technology of our Magnus MK2). These processors take the audio from each track and apply the same settings to every track, simulating the effect of a master bus processor.
