Elephant is a highly competitive plug-in for mastering applications: it features a variety of limiter modes that can be deeply customized, and a comprehensive set of level metering tools, including headroom estimation, EBU R128 and K-metering.
Elephant’s built-in linear-phase oversampling is an important element in achieving high-quality peak limiting and loudness maximization without inter-sample overshoots.
Elephant limiter can be used for mixing and mastering of both stereo and multi-channel music and sound material, at any standard sample rate. Limiting process can be visualized both as gain reduction meter and real-time graph.
Changes in version 4.14:
The “In Gain” and “Out Gain” can now be again linked inversely with the right-mouse-button, like in Elephant 3.
Improved the gaussian dither approximation.
Added Apple Silicon native compatibility.
Automatic instance labeling implemented (not supported in VST2).
Enabled the “asynchronous drawing” window mode on macOS; may fix the user interface “lagging”.
Max Duy is a revolutionary new approach to sound level maximizing from manufacturers DUY, based on the exclusive ILO (Intelligent Level Optimization) algorithm.
It produces an increase in the perceived level of a signal without artifacts (zero harmonic distortion even at low frequencies!) – accurate sound level optimization for music, film soundtracks, broadcast and multimedia – for application on individual tracks or final mixes.
“The DUY concept is something I’d been waiting for, for so long! I have always been interested in doing music like you paint creatingsoundscapes. With DUY, the dream comes true: I can sculpt, I can give shape… I can cook sounds and frequencies in the most creative and easiest way.”
ADAPTIVERB is a revolutionary reflectionless reverberation plug-in. Unlike traditional reflection-based acoustic room modeling, ADAPTIVERB adds perceived depth, harmonic richness, and butter-smooth tails without obscuring the source. Preserving the tonal definition and directness of your mix, it adds size, glue and body – making it perfect for mixing and mastering applications alike.
Powered by ray tracing, source separation, and advances in artificial intelligence, ADAPTIVERB automatically adapts to the input audio like a chameleon, blending with your sounds perfectly, and conforming its reverb tail to the tonality of the input or a user defined set of notes. While exceptionally fast to use, its advanced synthesis, cross-filtering and reverb pitch processing functionality provides ambient artists, film composers and sound designers with exciting new creative options for making evolving drones, organic pads, lush ambient sound scapes, and more.
The best software emulation of the Binson Echorec 2
The Pulsar Echorec plug-in gives you a faithful emulation of the legendary Binson Echorec 2 unit; furthermore, adding many workflow improvements to the original, such as the ability to change the motor speed (and so the delay time) in real time or to sync it to any tempo, including a tapped tempo.
Vintage Echorec devices are known for their musical saturation, self-oscillation, and oversound, shaping the music produced in the 70s by legends such as Jimmy Page and beyond…
Blue Cat Audio released MB-7 Mixer version 3.4, a significant update for the 10th anniversary of this multiband multi-effects processor, also capable of transforming any third party plug-in into a multiband effect.
Blue Cat’s MB-7 Mixer is a unique plug-in that splits the signal into several frequency bands and lets you re-mix and process them as if they were separate tracks: change levels, apply panning, add built-in effects, or even third party plug-ins.
With a focus on performance and stability, this new version adds a new multicore processing engine that can process each band on a separate CPU core, with up to 7 times the processing power, to load more effects. Many aspects of the DSP have also been optimized to reduce the CPU and memory usage, and more third party plug-ins can now be loaded thanks to several compatibility improvements. This 27th release is a major step forward for this plug-in that was initially released in 2011.
American Tweed, Electro Q Tone, Loudbass and Retro Compressor
American Tweed offers an incredibly realistic Fender Bassman amp sound emulation. From sparkling clean to a full crush tone, warm overdrives and even hard solo leads.
Electro Q Tone can produce some serious filtering auto filtering action for rich and funky sounding results. Q-Tone sounds great on drums guitars and bass and its unique envelope controls allow you to modify the filter’s behavior with ease.
Loudbass can really fatten up you low end and give you a nice stereo field enhancement at the same time. Want your low end to be as impressive as possible? Got a project to mix for the dance-floors and you are missing the “thump” you need to compete? Loudbass is the plug-in you need!
Retro Compressor is a compressor that has a vintage sound with those retro-looking controls. Quickly dial in your compression settings with the easy to use knobs.
