    Softube introducing the new Preset Collection


    Nyhetsroboten

    There is more to a great plug-in than the sound quality it imparts on your tracks. Workflow and user-friendliness are arguably equally important. To that end, we are proud to finally announce the completely overhauled Preset Collection, already available in the most recent update of all native Softube plug-ins.

    Use category icons to sort by instrument, or browse pro-user collections. Take a smoother stroll through your options with list view. Resize the presets window to your preference, or simply stay in the plug-in window, using the pull-down menu or the click-through arrows. It's slicker, quicker, and sicker than ever before.

    Talk is cheap. "Workflow and user-friendliness are arguably equally important."

    Fixa det då. Eller är hängade gui user-friendly? Att strunta i DAW automation är bra workflow?

      AMSTERDAM, The Netherlands, May 19, 2020. FabFilter is proud to announce immediate availability of FabFilter Saturn 2, a major update to their award-winning multiband distortion and saturation plug-in. Saturn 2 sees a top-to-bottom redesign of the Saturn interface for even greater ease of use and visualization, as well as a host of new features and improvements, including 12 new distortion styles, a radically overhauled and expanded modulation system, enhanced envelopes, linear phase processing, and a pristine new ‘Superb’ High Quality mode.

      Beautiful new interface with modulation visualization
      Saturn 2 looks better and flows faster than ever. The darker color scheme makes the plug-in easier to look at for extended sessions, and four interface size options and a stunning full-screen mode enable adaptation to any workspace. Modulation is now comprehensively visualized at both source and target, too, with color-coded collars and tracks on knobs and sliders animating in response to modulation input, the source flow area giving an eye-catching overview of all mod signals, and indicators on controls and bands showing which parameters are being modulated at a glance.
      More distortion types
      Saturn 2 almost doubles the number of distortion styles on board from 16 to 28. ‘Subtle’ versions of the Tape, Tube, and Saturation styles provide low-intensity warming, while four new British (Rock, Pop) and American (Tweed, Plexi) Amp styles perfectly model well-known guitar amplifiers, three Transformer styles (Subtle, Gentle, Warm) open up abrasive new possibilities, and the Foldback and Breakdown FX styles reshape and mutate sounds beyond recognition, the latter combining down-pitching with heavy distortion.
      Big modulation changes
      With virtually no limit placed on the combination of 16-step XLFOs, Envelope Generators, Envelope Followers, XY Controllers, and MIDI sources that can be used in a preset, Saturn has always been serious about creative modulation, and Saturn 2 takes the whole system to the next level. Curve the Envelope Generator’s Attack, Decay, and Release stages for a smoother or more aggressive response, activate the Envelope Follower’s new Transient detection mode to tightly track drums and percussion, and route discrete band inputs to both Envelope sources as triggering signals — pulverize hi-hats to the rhythm of the kick drum, for example. The XY Controller’s new Slider mode, meanwhile, slims it down to vertical-only operation, and the XLFO benefits from legato MIDI triggering and targeting of the Frequency Offset and Balance parameters for modulation. And with custom naming of individual mod sources now possible, users can customize their Saturn 2 presets for effortless navigation.
      Mastering grade saturation
      The new ‘Subtle’ saturation types make Saturn 2 the mastering engineer’s secret weapon, bringing enlivening presence and fizz to final mixes. In order to meet the exacting demands of such mission- critical application, the band crossovers now offer a choice of 6, 12, 24, 36, and 48 dB/octave roll-off slopes, the new ‘Superb’ High Quality mode switches the plug-in to 32x oversampling for almost total elimination of aliasing, and the Linear Phase option ensures maximum coherence for the crossovers and High Quality modes.
      Key features:
      • 28 diverse distortion styles, from warming tube and tape saturation to screaming American and British guitar amps, Transformers, bit crushing, smearing, rectification, and more
      • Up to six separate processing bands, with variable crossover slopes: 6, 12, 24, 36, and 48 dB/octave
      • Independent Drive, Mix, Feedback, Dynamics, Tone, and Level controls for every band
      • Two High Quality modes for 8x and 32x oversampling
      • Regular stereo and mid/side processing
      • Intuitive interactive multiband display
      • Powerful, flexible modulation system: drag and drop as many 16-step XLFOs, XY Controllers, Envelope Generators, Envelope Followers, Sliders, and MIDI Sources as required
      • Full visual feedback of modulation via parameter animation and ‘source flow’
      • Linear phase mode for mastering applications
      • Four interface size options and full-screen mode
      • Carefully curated factory preset library for amp modeling, coloration, lo-fi degradation, and FX
      • All the usual FabFilter features users have come to expect: perfectly fine-tuned knobs and controllers, interactive MIDI Learn, undo/redo and A/B switch, Smart Parameter Interpolation for smooth parameter transitions, an extensive help file with interactive help hints, sample accurate automation, SSE optimization, and more
      FabFilter Saturn 2 is now available for EUR 129, USD 154 or GBP 114, supporting both Windows and macOS in VST and VST 3, Audio Units, AAX, and AudioSuite plug-in formats. Bundles with FabFilter Saturn 2 and other FabFilter plug-ins are also available at: www.fabfilter.com/shop

      BRNO, CZECH REPUBLIC: software applications, software effects, and hardware processors developer Audified is proud to introduce an all-new intuitive plug-in product line with VocalMint Saturator — an easy-to-use, one-knob valve saturation shaper with vocal- and speech-specialising powerful processing hidden under the hood — as of April 23…

      Unlike most one-knob-style plug-ins that only do one thing — think processing a track linearly with a specific effect, Audified’s all-new VocalMint Saturator processes a track through its virtual signal chain to tune multiple vocal- and speech-specific parameters simultaneously. As a valve saturation shaper par excellence, it ably achieves this under the hood — and all without interruption to the creative process. After all, valve saturation is not a linear phenomenon and neither is VocalMint Saturator’s taper. Indeed, it is intelligently optimised for mixing vocals and speech, so saturates accordingly across the whole range of the knob that dominates a gorgeous GUI (Graphical User Interface) that is as easy on the eye as it is to use with a menu that can remain closed or opened for easily accessing additional controls, such as a zoom option or dBU/dBFS calibration.
      Intuitive in use, anyone can master VocalMint Saturator in a matter of seconds. Saying that, though, there lies a powerful beast below its superficially simplistic surface, saturating whatever track it is applied to while also shaping it using pre-tuned algorithms developed from Audified’s considerable collective music production experience. As Audified has helpfully chosen and carefully crafted the whole saturation chain involved, including subtle equalisation... voilá! All the user needs to do is turn the knob and enjoy employing the vocal- and speech-enhancing results on their own music production.
      VocalMint Saturator is available to purchase for a time-limited COVID-19 crisis promo price of only $29.00 USD until May 14, 2020 — rising thereafter to $79.00 USD — from Audified’s online shop here: https://shop.audified.com/products/vocalmint-saturator
      VocalMint Saturator can be directly downloaded as an AAX, AU, VST2, VST3 64-bit native plug-in for MacOS (10.9 and above) and an AAX, VST2, VST3 32- and 64-bit native plug-in for Windows (7, 8, and 10) — alongside a demo version — from Audified here: https://services.audified.com/download (Note that VocalMint Saturator is serial number-protected, so no iLok is required.)
