Sound Radix has updated its Drum Leveler beat detection-based audio plugin that offers downward and upward compressor/expander and gate.

This update adds workflow improvements such as direct value entry, improved control mapping in Pro Tools, a new Settings window and more. Other improvements include bug fixes and CPU usage optimization.

Many of you who often travel between studios and need an easy mobility solution have requested that we support iLok activation. We’re happy to announce that Drum Leveler is now iLok compatible! An iLok USB device is not required though, as Drum Leveler can be activated to your machine as well.
