NUGEN Audio has announced a significant SigMod update, adding VST3 hosting support to the utility toolbox plugin.

SigMod features twelve different signal modification units to instantly enhance DAW and associated plugin functionality.

NUGEN Audio’s aptly-named signal flow-modifying SigMod utility toolbox plug-in proved popular following its launch last May to widespread critical acclaim. After all, many plug-ins are ‘stereo’ but only have one set of controls. Clearly, this limits flexibility, which can prove particularly problematic when working with hardware emulations as they necessarily also model the limitations of the original device — vintage or otherwise.

Overcoming this, SigMod allows anyone to enhance both the functionality and usefulness of their collection, providing them — and also their DAW of choice — with a new lease of life! Literally. By simply combining single-process modules in any order to effectively design the precise routing required, they can combine, convert, delay, detect, filter, fix, host, invert, mute, re-route, route, solo, split, switch, tap… the productive possibilities are (almost) endless!

Enter today’s timely, significant update to SigMod — same as it ever was, while now also allowing VST3 hosting of plug-ins in Pro Tools (AAX environment), Ableton (VST2 environment), and Logic (AU environment). Ultimately, users can apply any plug-in in mid/side mode, add split L/R functionality, or split frequencies and route audio anywhere within the DAW itself, for instance. Indeed, SigMod just got significantly better!

Who better to reflect on the significant development of digital audio, then, than co-founding NUGEN Audio Creative Director Jon Schorah:

“I remember when recording to four audio tracks, without EQ or effects processing, was considered to be something of a breakthrough on a typical DAW. We have moved on considerably since then. At NUGEN Audio we aim to be part of that journey, pushing innovation beyond what is considered remarkable by today’s standards.”

SigMod will be showcased by NUGEN Audio on Booth 14200 at The 2019 NAMM Show, January 24-27 in Anaheim, California.

SigMod (VST/VST3/AU/AAX) is available to purchase at an introductory ‘NAMM special’ price of $29 USD (regular $49 USD) from NUGEN Audio and distributor Plugin Boutique.
