Noise Engineering has expanded its software offerings with the release of two new dynamics-processing plugins presenting many flavors of compression, expansion, limiting, and distortion.

Polydactyl is designed for anything from subtle mixing tasks to complete sonic destruction as a multiband processor, while Librae is made for mixing, mastering, sound design, and stereo-field experimentation.

“From the start, these plug-ins were intended for clean mastering, sound design, and coloration,” comments Noise Engineering Chief Plumber Adam Lange-Pearson, one of two software engineers behind Polydactyl and Librae.

“While we worked on these, our chat threads were full for months with picky feedback about levels and sound quality, and heated ergonomics discussion,” he continues, concluding: “By the end, I am pretty sure we argued over every pixel in each meter at least once.”

Polydactyl and Librae are available for Windows and Mac (VST/AU/AAX), priced $49 USD each. They are also available as part of the Build Your Own Bundle where you can purchase any 3 plugins and automatically get one for half price.
