Zynaptiq has announced the release of a brand new product that is technological breakthrough.
UNFILTER is a real-time plug-in that removes filtering effects, such as comb filtering, resonance, or excessive equalization – effectively linearizing the frequency response of a signal automatically.
UNFILTER can also apply a detected filter response to another signal, or export it to disk as an impulse response, and can even perform mastering grade adaptive, free-form, and graphic equalization.
Whether you’re in music production, film post, game audio, broadcast, sound design, forensics, or engineering – UNFILTER makes time-consuming and often impossible tasks as effortless as adjusting one control.
UNFILTER automatically detects resonances, EQ or filter effects – essentially any frequency response anomalies that aren’t part of the original signal. You can then remove these by simply adjusting one control, leaving the rest of the signal virtually untouched. As a result, previously problematic or unusable recordings can be made to sound good, and good recordings to sound great. In real-time, and with minimal effort, Zynaptiq-style.
Here’s what one user has said already:
“I just tried the demo on a song that has vocals recorded in a very small room with a loud vocalist who really excited the room nodes. These are once in a lifetime performances and there will be no re-recording. Also, the drums were recorded in an ADAT studio and then processed through some weird outboard tube stuff. UNFILTER made these vocals sound like they were recorded through great mics in a perfect room. The difference was night and day. Previously, I had been forced to do a whole bunch of EQ and still couldn’t really get all those room resonances out. Now the vocal just sits perfectly with almost no EQ at all.
The snare sound improved dramatically and now requires very little EQ. If you always make perfect recordings and you never have to work with problem tracks like this, then maybe UNFILTER is pointless for you. But if you’ve ever had problem tracks this is a total godsend. Also, UNFILTER is set up to be super quick. It takes about 5-10 seconds to “learn” and understand how to process a sound and then you have three controls that are easy. It required little to no tweaking to fix these tracks. Let’s face it: EQing major problems out of tracks is a tedious, time-consuming pain in the ass. UNFILTER automates this. This will be a major time saver.”
To fully understand what UNFILTER can do the video that explains the functions of this new type of plug-in can be found at the bottom of the UNFILTER Product page or on our Video section.
If you’ve ever had an epic club night – one of those evenings you stayed out until the sun was rising and woke up feeling alive like never before – then you’ve likely already heard a Sasha track.

Mixbus provides professional-level features to import or record an unlimited number of audio tracks to your computer, edit them, and mix them together. You can use Mixbus to record your band, mix a record, make a podcast, or edit the audio for your video. Learn more from the Mixbus web site.
Mixbus is a largely open source project (Mac – PC – Linux) powered by legendary manufacturer “Harrison Consoles“. Remember the sound of Michael Jackson’s albums Thriller and BAD? Well these, as so many other incredible albums and films were recorded on a Harrison Console !
Mixbus is the first DAW with a Mixer implementation that was actually created by a Mixer company… Sounds obvious, doesn’t it? But most DAWs were created by programmers when computers were new and exciting but low-powered. Sound quality was, in many cases, an afterthought… but the folks at Harrison recognised that there’s now enough processor power to SOUND good too. Their years of experience, refining the most revered digital mixing consoles, shines through in Mixbus. Check-out these cool Mixbus Videos.

A complete rewrite of their low latency linear phase EQ plug-ins.
Blue Cat’s Liny EQ is an 8 bands linear phase graphic equalizer with very low latency and comprehensive visual feedback: it processes audio signals without phase distortion, with an unusually short latency (less than 3 milliseconds).
Version 5.0 has now a brand new, fully customizable user interface, and includes many new features and enhancements: premium visual feedback with EQ curves, spectrum and spectrogram displays, new EQ shapes, single and dual channels modes, a new presets manager, Windows AAX support, multiple display sizes, new MIDI and automation mapping capabilities, and much more.
The plug-in is available alone or as part of Blue Cat’s Master Pack, a bundle including the company’s recommended plug-ins for mastering.
Brand new, fully customizable user interface:
New look and feel.
Show/hide what you need.
New EQ curve display.
New instant spectrum curves display.
New color or greyscale overlayed spectrogram view.
New output peak levels meters.
Multiple display sizes.
New “mix” parameter for instant dry/wet control or side chain dynamic equalization.
New interpolation mode for up to four different EQ shapes.
Now includes both single and dual channels versions and superseds the three plug-ins previously included in the Blue Cat’s Liny EQ Pack bundle.
Spectrum and spectrogram displays can be frozen to capture spectral snapshots.
New integrated presets manager:
Load/save presets from the plug-in’s user interface.
Organize presets with folders.
Customize the default preset.
Exchange presets easily.
Automation range and response curve can now be customized for each parameter (in and out).
Automation and MIDI settings (channel, MIDI learn etc.) are now accessible from the main user interface.
AAX plug-in format is now also supported on Windows (Pro Tools 10.2 required).
Both Analogica and Golden Ensembles 3 are now 40% OFF. These special prices will be valid until June 11, 2013.
Musicrow has released Analogica, an advanced analog filter emulation for Native Instruments Reaktor.
Analogica is now available individually, or as part of Musicrow’s Golden Ensembles 3 bundle for Reaktor.
Analogica is a fat and smooth analog sounding filter. It offers a distinctive warm character, “sweet and beautiful” self oscillation sound, flexible design and an intuitive interface.
Analogica enables you to fulfil any filtering mission with ease. It is not only suitable for elementary filtering tasks, but also capable of producing raw distortion sounds, interesting rhythmic patterns and unusual musical effects. Turn on the Ring Modulator and let it scream, produce a crunchy distorted sound using the Drive control, or turn (slowly) the special Analogica control for extreme results.
Make your sound move with the groove – the Envelope Follower will let you modulate the filter cutoff depending on the incoming signal level, and the built-in Sequencer will add movement and excitement to your sound.
This filter can sing – by turning the resonance all the way up, you will get “the sweet analog self oscillation sound that makes all the difference”.
Analogica and Golden Ensembles 3 are available at their special promo price on our “Private Deals Zone” page until the 11th of June.
UNFILTER is a real-time plug-in utilizing a blind de-convolution process to remove filtering effects, such as comb filtering, resonance, or excessive equalization – effectively linearizing the frequency response of a signal virtually automatically.
You can even undo synthesizer-style resonant filtering to some extent. UNFILTER can also apply a detected filter response to another signal, or export it to disk as impulse response, and can be set up to work as free-form EQ.
UNFILTER makes time-consuming and often impossible tasks as effortless as setting a handful of our super-slick “trackball” sliders.
Whether you need to repair poorly mic’d production sound or musical recordings, adapt the character of multiple sounds to the same acoustic “world”, equalize away “boominess” or resonance, generally re-balance the spectral contour of a signal, do lots of corrective EQ, or creatively design new sounds – UNFILTER is the tool for you.

XILS-lab is proud to announce availability of Oxium 1.5, an Avid Pro Tools 11 AAX format-ready major update to its popular performance soft synth plug-in, as of April 13…
The Oxium 1.5 update includes a redesigned Double Filter Block (that is easier to locate and identify), relocated KEYB/FX/INFO toggle buttons (to the right of the keyboard), a third skin (Ice, complimenting the original Orange and Rusty ones), and much more besides, Oxium 1.5 benefits from several well-thought-through new features to further increase its functionality and musicality, benefitting both existing users and all-new adopters alike.
More than 10 new modulation targets have been implemented, including both mixers’ global levels, as well as all oscillator levels and noise source levels in each of those mixers. Think mind-blowing morphing filters, LFO-controlled components of sounds, and excellent evolving textures — just a few flexible examples of what is now musically possible with Oxium 1.5 as a direct result!
Additionally, each Mask now has its own elementary envelope, elements of which have also been added as modulation targets. This allows the creation of hitherto-unheard sequence stylings when modulating those parameters in realtime with the mod wheel or other hardware controllers. All told, the Modulation Matrix and Musical Gestures Modulation pages now boast 59 modulation targets between them, making Oxium 1.5 one of the most powerful virtual analogue soft synths for serious sound designers anywhere!
Meanwhile, Mask functionality and usability has been dramatically increased and improved, thanks to MultiSelection and MultiEdition selection options of continuous or discontinuous Masks for speedy simultaneous editing. New Select ALL, Select ODD, and Select EVEN toggle buttons are available for this very purpose. Moreover, Mask Locators now gradually change colour when approached while onscreen editing, making it easier to grab them to change their lengths without running the risk of accidentally moving them. Thanks to these new Oxium 1.5 developments, Masks can easily be adapted to quickly create complex grooves and sophisticated syncopated music material — mimicking old-school step sequencers or gating techniques, and much more besides!
Rounding off this major update, Oxium 1.5 comes complete with over 50 new presets that mostly make use of its new features. So why not check out the downloadable demo and try before you buy? Rest assured, we’re sure you’ll like what you hear!
Just announced at Musikmesse and coming very soon to the DontCrack store.
UNCHIRP is a real-time plug-in that allows removing the most obnoxious artifacts associated with low bit-rate lossy audio encoding, de-noising and other processes that operate in the frequency domain, commonly referred to as Chirping, Warbling, The Tweeties or Underwater-Sound.
This type of artifact has so far been virtually impossible to remove due to its narrow-band and short-time nature. If you need to salvage poorly encoded music, speech that has gone through a poor GSM/satellite uplink, material that has been de-noised with sub-optimal settings or footage recorded with consumer mobile devices, UNCHIRP is your (only) friend.
