Our friends at Voxengo have released an update to their acclaimed Mastering Compressor, Polysquasher (3.0) with a redesign of its compressor algorithm and parameters, and to announce Pro Tools AAX format support.
Voxengo Polysquasher is a mastering compressor for professional audio and sound production applications. Polysquasher was designed with a main goal: to be transparent. Transparent compression action is a cornerstone for any mastering compressor. Transparency of audio signal processing is necessary to preserve all existing elements in the mix, while compression itself is necessary to make the mix sound uniform to other mixes (tracks) and to make it sound more solid and “glued”.
Polysquasher achieves its goal by using a unique compression algorithm which requires a small number of parameters basically threshold and ratio only making this compressor a joy to use. More advanced settings are hidden in the compressor mode editor panel where you can create your own compressor modes that can be easily recalled later.
Polysquasher is best used as a finishing compressor inserted in the chain before the final mastering limiter.
Polysquasher also features real-time gain reduction and waveform graphs. Full multi-channel operation is supported.
Voxengo Polysquasher is available for ONLY $71 (LIST $89.95) at the DontCrack Store.
Nomad Factory have updated their Garbage LSD plug-in to version 1.0.1. This is a quick fix update for a possible validation issue in Cubase 9.x on Mac OS X, and moving forward to set minimum requirement of OS X 10.8 or above for its use.
Note: Although earlier OS X versions may work, official support is now 10.8 or above. The company will take this minimum requirement forward for all their products as and when next updates are developed and available.
Applied Acoustic Systems are currently working on making their different instruments compatible with the NKS format from Native-Instruments. Now it is the turn of Chromaphone 2 to be so.
And to celebrate this new compatibility Chromaphone 2 is being offered at half price, $99! and ALL the Chromaphone 2 sound banks are at $19.
Chromaphone 2 is a synthesizer which uses acoustic resonators to create drums, percussion, mallet, string, and other unique instruments. Drumheads, bars, marimbas, plates, strings, and tubes are combined into pairs and played by a configurable mallet and a flexible noise source.
A proprietary coupling technology, which models precisely how vibrating objects interact and influence each other, captures key acoustic behaviours of musical instruments resulting in a library of truly expressive instruments in a vast range of sonic colors.
Chromaphone 2 and ALL the Chromaphone 2 sound banks are available on promo until the 27th of February at The DontCrack Store.
kiloHearts have announced the release of their new plug-in and snapin for Multipass and SnapHeap, called ‘Transient Shaper‘.
Transient Shaper offers an alternative take on processing the dynamics of a sound, working on the rate of change of the signal level rather than the signal level itself. This not only makes it able to react very fast to input sound, but also makes it consistent regardless of input gain. The result is a very direct control over the character of both the attack and sustaining sections of the sound in a way that’s simple to understand and tweak.
Using a compressor is the most common way of adjusting the dynamics of a sound, but it’s not always the right tool for the job. When you want to carefully tweak the punch of your snare, the ricki-ticki-ticking of your hi-hats or the snappiness of a synth line, Transient Shaper is the right tool for the job!
kiloHearts Transient Shaper is available now for Only $39 at the DontCrack Store.
MeldaProduction have updated all their effect plug-ins and MPowerSynth to version 10.07, providing several new features, optimization, improvements and fixes. See the extensive full list of changes below…
Our good friends and exquisite plug-in manufacturers Voxengo have released an update to their plug-in, ‘PrimeEQ’.
This update includes the following changes: -
Added Pro Tools 12+ AAX-64 support.
Added automation parameters for up to 5 bands.
Added the bypass switch.
Added the master output gain control.
PrimeEQ is a parametric equalizer plug-in for professional music production applications. It was designed to be the first equalizer to reach for when track or mix equalization is necessary: just insert the plug-in, put and drag the control points to the desired positions.
The plug-in offers an extremely optimized user interface and features an innovative “differential” filter display which shows you how exactly a given selected filter contributes to the overall EQ shape. All control points are placed on the overall EQ shape making the workflow with this equalizer fast and efficient. PrimeEQ is similar to CurveEQ in this respect except that PrimeEQ uses independent parametric filters instead of a continuous EQ curve.
Additional features include a deeply customizable spectrum analyzer of the same high quality as found in SPAN, GlissEQ, and other Voxengo plug-ins.
Check out PrimeEQ and the other Voxengo products at great prices, at the DontCrack Store.
Tek’it Audio has released two new Equaliser plug-ins, EQP8 and EQF8 that are an major improvement on their earlier, now discontinued products 8eqp and 8eqf .
EQP8 is a fully parametric 8 band equalizer for mixing, mastering and sound design, with fixed center frequency ranges to give you higher precision. EQP8 keeps the character and nature of your sound that makes it the ideal EQ for a wide range of applications.
EQF8 is a semi-parametric 8 band equalizer for mixing or mastering. EQF8 keeps the character and nature of your sound that makes it the ideal EQ for a wide range of applications.
Both of these brilliant EQs are packed with a number of features, including input and output digital peak meters, a mix fader for parallel equalization, separate left and right channels bypass and a very usable interface..
Stacker is a hit product you need to know about if you do anything with drum loops or samples.

Since its introduction MixChecker has been a great success. If you have ever wondered what your mixes sound like on the many different playback systems, this is the product you can trust to let you know exactly that.
Why does your music, your videos, showreels and movies not sound great when you move out of your studio? Why do they lose punch and clarity that your awesome studio monitors deliver? That is because you do not use the same equipment the real people use.
In the past, to ensure your mix sounds right on any device, you had to export your sound and listen in different conditions. Import your mix to your smartphone, burn on CD and listen in your car, get back to your studio, do little tweaks and export again.
Now you can use the MixChecker to perform quick round test that will only take a few seconds. And get back to mixing and corrections while you still know what the problem in your mix was.
