Sound Radix has released an update to its drum dynamics plugin Drum Leveler, a beat detection-based compressor/expander and gate.

Version 1.2 comes with various new features and improvements, as well as some fixes.

Sound Radix Drum Leveler 1.2

By selectively applying gain to single drum beats, Drum Leveler easily achieves the desired target level for each beat without affecting bleed noise or any beats that are out of the user-defined processing range.

DRUM LEVELER is powerful yet easy to use. It will help you achieve solid driving grooves, improve clarity and add punch to any percussive performance.

DRUM LEVELER brings a new, radical approach to drums’ dynamics control. We’d like to encourage you to take the time and explore Drum Leveler to unleash its full power.
