Sound Radix has released version 1.1 of Drum Leveler, a beat detection-based compressor/expander/gate effect plug-in for Windows and Mac.

Sound Radix Drum Leveler

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

Changes in Drum Leveler v1.1

  • Side-Chain Key Input – Use external input to trigger pads, reverbs with drum grooves to create unique moving soundscapes and harmonic movement.
  • Gate Range – Take control over your bleed, or boost it to your liking.
  • Soft-Clipper – Crank it up! Peaks over 0dB will be pleasantly rounded.
  • Sensitivity Control – Allows for more control over Drum Leveler’s detection algorithm.
  • Mac Voice-Over support for the visually impaired.
  • Many improvements, bug fixes and CPU optimization.

Drum Leveler (VST/AU/RTAS/AAX) is available for purchase for $149 USD.
