PSP Audioware oldTimer ME, limited time promo for $19.99, at the DontCrack Store


Check out some great testimonials below from influential engineers in the music industry…

I love it (the PSP oldTimer compressor). Where did you hide the tubes?!!!! PSP is one of the few companies out there who knows how to put real analog character into a plug-in and maintain the transparency.

Bob Katz, Digital Domain, Orlando, FL, USA;
Author of the Mastering Audio – The Art And The Science

The PSP oldTimer gives a musical fullness that is unlike any other compressor I’ve used. While it can be set to “pump” as a true “old timer”, the subtlety of this compressor is that is fills in the music in a way that brings a sweeter or more musical density, (particularly from ratio 1.5 upwards) that makes a different kind of sonic impact from a conventionally squashed track – more subtle, hence more powerful a tool.

George Daly, About Records, San Francisco, CA, USA

Every so often a “must have” plug-in comes along – this was certainly true with PSP VintageWarmer and it is with PSP oldTimer whilst it’s not based on any vinage or historical models – it reminds me of many I have used,including my own now vintage Summit Audio TLA 100.

I have only had PSP oldTimer for a short while but it is already my new favorite compressor for drum room mics and Tom Toms – As a logic pro user it’s important that any new plug-in doesn’t hog all my CPU and it appears to be easy on that front probably the best £50 quid you’ll spend this side Xmas!

Steve Levine, Grammy Winning Producer;
Chairman of The Music Producers Guild, London, UK

PSP’s oldTimer has a digital brain and an analog soul. Pumps like classic analog but without the grit and loss of high end when pushed. Coloration is just enough to smooth the sound without dulling the edge. It’s a terrific new brush for the paint box.

Alan Silverman, Arf! Mastering, New York, NY, USA

Audified release MixChecker Pro

Audified MixChecker Pro

Audified have released MixChecker Pro, an update on the original plug-in with new simulations and features to allow you to “Double Check Your Mix!”. Available now at the DontCrack Store, see the details below in the news for what’s new for this great new product from the Audified company.


Audified Mix Checker Pro, available for only $179 here at the DontCrack Store


Simulate the devices and environment of your audience to make your mix exceptional for everyone.

Everyone who mixes content for the audience has to make sure that the mixes sound great on every consumer device in every environment. It can be done quickly and easily with MixChecker or MixChecker Pro. With tons of new features, the Pro version lets you simulate the exact surroundings and devices of your listeners.

What’s new?

Everything! Even though the interface has the same elegance and ease of use as the original MixChecker. See below…

New Simulations

All characteristics are newly measured, the processing engine is completely different with lower latency and better phase linearity. No simple impulse responses inside.

Create Sets Of Simulations

Drag the selected simulations in any order to the MixChecker buttons. Save your selection to several “Button sets” together with stereo base width and volume level for each button.

Custom Settings and Labels for Buttons

The MixChecker buttons have several adjustable parameters. You may even assign one simulated device to several buttons, each with different settings. To distinguish between them, there could be a custom label placed over each button.

Distortion

Audified are experts in exact modeling of distortions and saturations, either of speakers or of amps, preamps and other circuits. They have used this experience and added modeling of these distortions to MixChecker Pro.

Background Noise

MixChecker adds a possibility to add some audio background with adjustable volume. The combination with simulated devices is quite sophisticated: When you select simulation of phones, the path of the noise through the headphones and ears is simulated, so you hear the realistic combination of the mix playing from headphones and of the noise, coming through headphones from outside.

Auto Advance

You don’t need to browse through simulations manually. The adjustable auto advance function does it for you.

Advanced Stereo Modes

Except of simple Mono mode, MixChecker offers channel swap, listening to each channel separately in both monitors. Furthermore, each simulation has adjustable width of the stereo base.

Web Browser, iOS and Android Remote Control

MixChecker Pro comes accompanied by web browser, mobile phone or tablet control. You may walk around your studio when checking the final mix, save the valuable screen size.

More Improvements

Improvements include interface zoom and calibration. And, Audified have removed the compensation buttons, which in some cases they helped the simulation process but for many speakers it had negative impact to the fidelity of simulation. See the full explanation in the user manual.
