Voxengo has announced an update to its Elephant mastering limiter effect plugin for Windows and Mac.
Version 4.8 includes a new clipper-like limiter algorithm.
The “EL INS” is a clipper-like (“instant”) limiter algorithm, without release timing elements, but with a look-ahead transient smoothing taking place. This mode is effective for EDM production where signal is limited to bring more energy to it.
This algorithm is like the “Clip” algorithm, it produces more distortion in comparison to other algorithms. The “TransTime” parameter affects the look-ahead time and the degree of transient smoothing taking place.
Changes in Elephant v4.8
- Added “1-Bit” dither noise option.
- Added the overall integrated loudness readout.
- Added channel names to the statistics panel.
- Added the “EL INS” limiter algorithm.
- Changed gain reduction metering from relative to absolute.
Elephant (VST/VST3, AU and AAX) is currently on sale at Plugin Boutique for $83.96 USD as part of a Summer Sale (regular $119.95 USD).
Voxengo has also released updates for the free Correlometer analog-style stereo multi-band correlation meter plugin.
Version 1.1 adds horizontal lining and standard infrastructure elements, including a preset manager. It also fixes problems with flickering during avg.time and band number changes and incorrect mouse-wheel behavior on the “Bands” control.
Also updated to version 1.1, the OldSkoolVerb Plus algorithmic reverberation plugin now comes with ProTools 12+ AAX-64 support.
It also features improved default mode presets and now comes with Retina support on macOS and automatic high-resolution UI size adjustment on Windows. CPU usage on AVX2-capable processors is 20% lower (in 64-bit mode).
Voxengo plugins are 30% off at Plugin Boutique through July 31st, 2019.
