Audified STA Effects promo and a Freebie!

STA Claus is coming to town. And he would like to brighten your Christmas with the lights of STA Effects tubes and bring some extra warmth to your studios and homes. He persuaded Audified that they should significantly discount the STA Effect by 62% which means you can get them for just $49 now until January 1st.

The STA Effects are based on STA (Summing Tube Amplifier) technology that uses two signal paths. One of them is processed by modulation or spectral change and the other is clean. These two signals are mixed on a vacuum tube.

Audified have added a brand new plug-in, STA Delay, so STA Effects now contain Preamp, Chorus, Flanger, Phaser, Enhancer and Delay.

The internal processing has been improved. Audified changed the operation points to achieve better Saturation results and also improved the GUI significantly, so that the users get better access to all functions and newly added controls.

And there is more – Free STA Preamp Offer!

Anyone who buys MixChecker, U73b Compressor, U78 Saturator, RZ062 Equalizer, Studio Bundle or the Live Guitar and Bass Bundle may rejoice, because they will get STA Preamp (worth $49) – the precisely modeled tube saturating plug-in – for free.

How to do it….

There’s no need to order the STA Preamp. Once there are any of the above-mentioned items in your cart, STA Preamp license will be delivered to you automatically. The offer runs until January 1, 2018.

The Audified STA effects promo is available today at $49 on the DontCrack Store.

Audified products are available here on the DontCrack Store.

Antares DUO Evo on Promo

Doubling is one of the best techniques for fattening up a lead vocal or giving it extra depth. And DUO Evo is simply the quickest, easiest way to enhance vocals with a realistic doubled vocal part. It is on promo until the 20th of December at ONLY $19 (list $69) so now is the time to pick it up and let your vocals get new depth they might be missing.

Simply instantiate DUO Evo on your lead vocal, adjust the Variation parameters to create exactly the doubled voice you’re looking for, and hit play. Instant doubling.

In addition to allowing programmable variation in pitch, timing and vibrato depth, for even more realism, DUO Evo also includes a simplified version of THROAT Evo’s vocal modeling to provide timbral variation for the doubled part. So you can create a doubled part that sounds like the same person as the lead vocalist or someone else entirely.

DUO Evo’s output section gives you independent control of the level and stereo position of the original and doubled voices, so you can essentially choreograph your two singers.

DUO Evo is now available at the promo price of $19 (MSRP $69) at the DontCrack Store.
