  1. FREDAGSTIPSET: Dagen till ära tänkte jag rekommendera tio sprillans nya pluggar som garanterat kommer att förändra ditt mixande på ett eller annat sätt. Jag är själv en stark förespråkade av "less is more" och gör allt för att hålla mig till ett minumin av effekter. Samtligt vore det ju dumt att inte testa det som är nytt och intressant. Kanske finns här en ny favorit? CA-2A (gratis) Cakewalks gratisversion av den klassiska kompressorn LA-2A. Destructor (610 kr) Blue Cats förstärkarsimulator och distortion färgar både stort och smått. Hammer DSP (1 300 kr) Kush Audios variant på A-Designs högt eftertraktade mastringsequalizer. Neutron (1 750 kr) iZotopes nya hjälpreda som gör livet lite enklare för den som mixar digitalt. SAND (1 060 kr) Senaste kanalstrippen från Acustica Audio med equalizer, filter och kompressor. TuCo (650 kr) Sonimus nya vari-mu rörkompressor är speciellt bra på trummor och sång. The Monster (gratis) Slate Digitals endastående gratiskompressor med monstruöst mycket attityd. ToneCentric (520 kr, introduktionspris) Greg Wells lättrattade exciter ger dig mer djup i mixarna. ToneSlant (gratis) Airwindows extremt transparenta tilt-eq som lämpar sig väl till mastring. VerbSuite Classics (pris oklart) Slate Digital ger oss åtta eftertraktade digitala reverb i en och samma plugg. Håll även ögonen på Abbey Road Vinyl och Natural Drums som släpps inom kort! Ställ gärna frågor eller kommentera artikeln i kommentarsfältet nedan, så spinner vi tillsammans vidare på ämnet. Eller om du hellre föredrar att diskutera om mixning i avdelningen "Mixning och mastring" på Studios forum här! Fredagstipset är en återkommande serie där Studios skribent Jon Rinneby varje fredag delar med sig av tips inom bland annat inspelning och mixning. Här hittar du samtliga fredagstips.
  2. FREDAGSTIPSET: Finns det något bättre än lättsmälta topplistor? Förmodligen. Idag fortsätter vi hursomhelst föregående veckas Fredagstips med ytterligare ett gäng fin fina pluggar. Denna gång mina nuvarare favoriter som gång på gång smyger sig in i samtliga projekt och ständigt levererar. Är dom ett måste? Självklart inte. Men följande nio digitala hjälpredor gör i alla fall mitt dagliga arbete både lättre och dessutom roligare. Klicka på respektive rubrik för att besöka pluggsidan. Här finner du förra veckans fredagstips 10 nya pluggar du inte får missa Fabfilter Pro-Q 3 Equalizernas equalizer som klarar allt och lite till med sitt fantastiska innovativa gränssnitt och transparenta sound. Till godbitarna hör bland annat Auto Gain, 24 EQ-band, Spectrum Grab, EQ Match, Zero Latency, Linear Phase och Natural Phase. Att pluggen dessutom är extremt processorsnål och klarar av alla tankbara filtertyper upp till 96 dB/oct gör inte saken sämre. PSP E27 I grunden är E27 en ytterst välljudande tre bands EQ med nio valbara frekvenser som fläckfritt fångar känslan från dess analoga förebild. En mer färgad historia som kompletterar Fabfilter Pro-Q 2 utmärkt och lämpar sig till både mixning och mastring. Speciellt 28k-knappen som boostar toppen är extra trevlig! En equalizer som garanterat lyser upp vinterhalvåret. TDR Kotelnikov GE Mastrings- och stereokompressorn som aldrig låter illa, sålänge du inte direkt missbrukar pluggen såklart. TDR Kotelnikov GE limmar ihop vilken fladdrig produktion som helst, samtidigt som den håller sig i bakgrunden och aldrig står vägen för själva grundljudet. Skulle jag tvingas att endast klara mig på en digital kompressor hade det förmodligen blivit denna. Sly-Fi Deflector En lite skitigare kompressor som skakar liv i de mest livlösa av inspelningar. Vad sägs exempelvis om klassisk och mjuk LA2-A kompression på sång eller varför inte brutal 1176 mangling på trummor? Lätt fixat! Deflector är dock inget du använder på alla spår, men kan verkligen vara en stor tillgång när du vill sätta lite extra karaktär på tillvaron. iZotope Ozone 9 Mastringssviten som är mer än bara ett gäng pluggar i smidig förpackning. Framförallt sticker den dynamiska equalizern ut och visar sig gång på vara riktigt användbar. Som grädde på moset finns dessutom en välljudande exciter, multibandskompressor, stereobreddare och maximizer för riktigt regniga dagar. Waves MixCentric En ratt är allt som behövs och vips låter din aningen dova eller livlösa mix mycket trevligare. Bör användas med största försiktighet! För mycket av det goda är sällan gott. Brainworx bx_refinement Räddaren i nöden som filar bort jobbiga frekvenser på allt från enskilda kanaler till hela mixar. En lättrattad historia som gör precis vad som förväntas och mer där till. En lyxplugg för den late kan tyckas, men en garanterad tidssparare för dig som dagligen sitter och mixar. Valhalla Plate Plåtreverbet som låter både gammalt och rostigt, stort och skitigt och ekande drömskt. Valet är ditt. En nostalgitripp som verkligen inte sparar på krutet och vågar vara allt annat än subtilt. Trummor, sång och gitarr låter genast mycket mer levande. Måste testas! SIR StandardCLIP Nästa generations soft clipper med upp till x256 oversampling är tveklöst det bästa sättet att få upp volymen på dina mixar idag. Ersätter och kör över den klassiska limitern utan problem. Ställ gärna frågor eller kommentera artikeln i kommentarsfältet nedan, så spinner vi tillsammans vidare på ämnet.

  3. FREDAGSTIPSET: I takt med att våren gör sitt intåg är det dags att blomma ut i studion och sätta lite färg på tillvaron. Och vad bättre än lite nya digitala ljudförvrängare eller varför inte en ny spännande hårdvara? Samtliga pluggar fungerar till både PC och Mac. Sknote DolA Det klassiska "hemliga tricket" för att öppna upp och få enskilda instrument eller hela mixar att andas och kännas mer levande. Ett perfekt sällskap i grått och trist aprilväder. Pris 360 kr. Airwindows TubeDesk Kush Audio Omega 458A Lite skit under naglarna har aldrig skadat och speciellt inte när det låter så här bra. Med Omega 458A tuffar du till de mest trötta av instrument och mixar. Pris: 260 kr. Sly-Fi Kaya När inget annat fungerar så sträcker du dig efter Kaya. En sannerligen unik plugin med fet botten och sumpig distortion. Otroligt analog känsla. Pris: 710 kr. Waves Abbey Road Vinyl Emulering av Abbey Roads specialbyggda vinylgraverare. Mängder av inställningar för att få mixen att låta som förr. Pris: 2 200 kr. Blackrooser VHL-3C Avskalad variant av välkända Pultec EQP-1A. En välkommen räddare i nöden med perfekt vintagekänsla. Pris: Gratis. XLN Audio RC-20 Retro Color En sandlåda med oändliga ljudmöjligheter. Allt från försiktig distortion till spritt språngande galna effekter som garanterat livar upp stämningen. Studio har testat produkten här. Pris 765 kr. Audiothing Outer Space En trogen emulering av det omåttligt populära delayet från 70-talet. Som grädde på moset erbjuds tre olika lägen: Original, Modern, Old. Pris 470 kr. Zulu Avslutningsvis ett hårt dual mono/stereo-paket från Handsome Audio: Världens första passiva och analoga rullbandssimulator, inspirerad av Ampex 456. Pris: 6 700 kr.

  4. FREDAGSTIPSET: Sommaren har äntligen gjort sitt intåg och vad bättre än att dra ner rullgardinerna och stänga in sig ett svettigt studiorum utan luftkonditionering? Det har dykt upp en del helt klart intressanta pluggar under 2017. Men istället för att slita hår i hopp om att hitta de bästa, så har jag samanställt en lista på de tio vassaste digitala kreationerna hittils, med fokus på mixning och mastring. Vissa av pluggarna är gratis, medan andra kostar mer än vad jag egentligen anser rimligt. Hur som helst, valet är ditt. Samtliga fungerar till både PC och Mac. GOLD – Acustica Audio Senaste tillskottet från analogljudsmästarna Acustica Audio. Fyra equalizers, två extremt ovanliga kompressorer samt sju preamps, med ett sound som bland annat för tankarna till Neve, API, och Rupert Neve. Pris: 1 400 kr Seventh Heaven – LiquidSonics De 30 mest populära reverben från legendariska Bricasti M7 samlade i ett smidigt och lättrattat paket. Kräver iLok 2 eller 3. Pris: 430 kr IronOxide5 – Airwindows Extremt färgad rullbandsemulator med en rejäl dos old-school-feeling. Lättrattad och fantastiskt välljudande i sann Airwindowsanda. Pris: Gratis. Lindell 354E – Lindell Audio Multibands- och mjukvaruversionen av dyrgripen Neve 2254E är inget för dig med rattfobi. Den är dock ett ypperligt val för att komprimera lite tuffare trummor, elgitarr eller rocksång. Pris: 1 740 kr Blackface SC-5 – Black Rooster Audio En mångsidig VCA-kompressor av klassiskt snitt som fungerar lika bra på mastern som på aggressiva trummor. Lämpar sig extra bra för stereospår. Pris: 430 kr Gatey Watey – Boz Digital Labs En nyskapande gate som låter dig styra vilka frekvenser som ska dämpas när tröskelvärdet överskrids. Detta resulterar i mer naturligt sound och läckage trollas bort på ett nästan magiskt sätt. Pris: 90 kr Tapedesk – Overloud Kombinerar tre eftertraktade mixerbord och två populära rullbandspelare. Ett perfekt verktyg för dig som vill sätta lite extra färg på mastern eller på gruppkanalerna. Pris: 1 740 kr D16 – Tekturon Ett kreativt och annorlunda delay för dig som gillar att experimentera och är van att jobba med sequencers. Fungerar dessutom ypperligt att styra med en midi-controller. Pris: 670 kr MAX1 – Beatskillz Den intelligenta kompressorn som sköter grovjobbet åt dig. Ett utmärkt val för dig som är osäker på kompression och limitering, eller bara tycker att det är allmänt tråkigt. Få inställningar och mycket ljud. Pris: Gratis Endless Smile – Dada Life Skaparna bakom hyllande Sausage Fattener är tillbaka med en ny plugg. Exakt vad den gör förklaras bäst med en video. Pris: 340 kr Ställ gärna frågor eller kommentera artikeln i kommentarsfältet nedan, så spinner vi tillsammans vidare på ämnet.

  6. På senare år har det börjat dyka upp pluggar som siktar på att hjälpa oss att jobba snabbare och mer effektivt. Istället för en sjuttioelfte plugg som ska efterlikna de mest eftertraktade analogburkarna så har en del tillverkare börjat inse att det går att göra mycket mer än så med hjälp av datorer. Olika typer av semiautomatiska dynamiska EQ har dykt upp. (In English at the bottom of the page). För ett tag sedan testade jag till exempel Gullfoss från Sound Theory, och den här gången är det dags för Soothe 2. Soothe är tydliga i sitt namn vad det är de vill göra. Har du någonsin suttit och försökt peta ut störiga frekvenser med smala EQ-kurvor och känt att det till slut kanske tar bort saker i ljudet som du egentligen inte vill? Då kanske du ska ta en titt på det här. ENGLISH Intelligent plugin helps you clean up In recent years, plugins have begun to emerge that aim to help us work faster and more efficiently. Instead of a seventy-eighth plugins that mimics the most sought after analogue analogue products, some manufacturers have begun to realize that much more can be done with the help of computers. Various types of semi-automatic dynamic EQ have appeared. A while ago I tested Gullfoss from Sound Theory, and this time it is time for Soothe 2. Soothe, as the name says, what it is they want to do. Have you ever tried to squeeze out disturbing frequencies with narrow EQ curves, and felt that in the end it might remove things in the sound that you really didn't want to be removed? Then maybe you should take a look at this.

  8. FREDAGSTIPSET: Pluggar, pluggar pluggar. Hur många behövs det egentligen för att göra en bra mix? Svaret är enkelt... Fem! Varken mer eller mindre. Skämt och sido, jag gillar utmaningar. Eller i alla fall utmaningar som jag vet att jag har möjlighet att klara av. Med detta sagt fick jag härom veckan frågan om vilka fem pluggar jag inte skulle klara mig utan i studion år 2019. Fem pluggar, inte fler. En svår men högst relevant fråga kan tyckas, då jag är en stark förespråkare av att begränsa mig när det kommer till mixning av musik. Innan jag svarar vill jag dock understryka att de medföljande pluggarna i ditt DAW duger mer än väl för att göra professionella mixar och mastringar. Det är i öronen det sitter, inte i tekniken. Tanken med följande pluggar är därför inte att de ska ersätta allt mellan himmel och jord och magiskt förvandla dina produktioner till listettor. Istället ligger fokus på välljud, samtidigt som de ska vara lättillgängliga, prisvärda och underlätta ditt arbete. Pluggarna passar dessutom nybörjare såväl som avancerade användare. Då kör vi! Fab Filter Pro-Q 3 Den dyraste pluggen i samlingen, men också den mest mångsidiga. Ska du ha endast en equalizer så är det Fab Filter Pro-Q 3 som gäller. Pris: 149 Euro Hemsida: fabfilter.com Klanghelm MJUC Tre mångsidiga kompressorer i en. Från vintage till modert sound. Fungerar på allt från sång, gitarr och bas till trummor och hela mixar. Pris: 24 Euro Hemsida: klanghelm.com Waves Mixcentric Pluggen med många finesser under huven vars uppgift är att göra dina mixar tydligare med endast en ratt. Sparar mycket tid och fungerar i stort sett alltid. Pris: 59 dollar Hemsida: waves.com SIR Audio Tools Standard CLIP Clippern som även fungerar som en slags limiter, utan att pressa sönder ljudet. Väldigt transparent ljudförstärkare med mer oversampling än du någonsin kan tänkas behöva. Pris: 19 Euro Hemsida: siraudiotools.com Valhalla Vintage Verb Reverbet som låter precis som det ska. Oändligt många presets och goda möjligheter till finjustering. Tjusigt och innovativt gränssnitt.

  9. Celemony Software GmbH, Munich, 26.05.2020 (ictw) – Celemony is pleased to announce the immediate availability of the new Melodyne Version 5. The Grammy-Award-winning software Melodyne is used all over the world every day for the correction, perfection, reshaping and transformation of vocal tracks, samples and audio recordings of all kinds. A studio standard, in fact. But even the best things can be improved. Melodyne 5: What’s new? The most important new features of Version 5 relate to Melodyne's core competence: the correction of poor intonation on vocal tracks. The algorithm now detects – along with a host of other phenomena – the presence and extent of the unpitched (noise-like) components of the vocal sound as well as breaths, which it then processes separately from the pitched components. This leads to better results, less time spent editing, and a more natural sound. Factor in the improved weighting of pitch deviations and Melodyne 5 now hands you back – virtually in two shakes – a musically perfect vocal performance. The volume balance between the pitched and unpitched components can be adjusted – syllable by syllable if desired. This not only helps with double-tracking and vocal harmonies but gives you a perfect and precisely targeted de-esser into the bargain. Totally new possibilities for dynamic contouring are afforded also by the Fade Tool and the Leveling Macro, as they too work on a per-note basis – even with polyphonic audio material. A new degree of musical freedom But Melodyne 5 also supports new workflows that further musical creativity: With the Chord Track (and the Pitch Grid configured accordingly), recordings and samples can be adapted at lightning speed to the harmonic structure and chords of your own compositions and songs. So any library sample now harmonizes instantly with your song. That's perfect for songwriters but also for remixers. And thanks to the integrated chord recognition, no knowledge of music theory is required. The most important new features of Melodyne 5 in a nutshell: With the Melodic algorithm, separate editing of pitched and unpitched components of the vocal sound (sibilant detection). Better results, less time spent editing, more natural sound The ability to control the volume ratio between the pitched and unpitched components – a precisely targeted de-esser function Improved weighting of pitch deviations, musically perfect intonation A Chord Track and Chord Grid to adapt any recordings and samples to your song – thanks to integrated chord recognition, no knowledge of music theory required The Fade Tool and Leveling Macro let you edit the dynamics of each note – even in polyphonic material A new algorithm, "Percussive Pitched", plus various other algorithm enhancements Fuller implementation of keyboard shortcuts Melodyne 5: Working with chordsWorking with chords Melodyne 5 runs in stand-alone mode as well as with 64-bit DAWs under MacOS and Windows – DAW integration via ARA, VST3, AU or AAX. The update costs 49 €/US$ for Melodyne assistant, 99 €/US$ for Melodyne editor and 149 €/US$ for Melodyne studio. For Melodyne essential and users who registered Melodyne after 1 March 2020, it is free of charge. A 30-day trial version can be downloaded from https://www.celemony.com/en/trial Melodyne 5: A quantum leap in vocal editing Melodyne 5: The leveling tools More information on Melodyne 5: www.celemony.com
  10. 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.

  12. 980 Spark is a unit that consists of three modules: Compressor, Colour, and Saturator... This plug-in was especially designed to help enrich and thicken audio content with minimum of effort, without compromising quality and usability. It is a handy tool for sound design, as well as a sophisticated saturation unit. All the controls are carefully selected with workflow in mind, enabling the user to quickly achieve the desired result, while retaining the versatility of the plug-in and allowing space for experimentation. 980 Spark is mostly suited for use during the production process, especially in electronic music but also acoustic or live applications. Combining Compression, EQ and Saturation, allows control of the dynamic range and harmonic content of the sound. The signal first runs through the "Compressor" module, then through the "Colour" module and finally into the "Saturator". This way, the first two stages ("Compressor" and "Colour") essentially define the dynamic and spectral characteristics of the sound that will excite the Saturator, creating a unique spectrum of capabilities on the saturation effect. Features 980 Spark features an easy to use interface, with sample peak metering and clip indication at each output stage for easy gain staging through the plug-in, and expertly tuned modules for musical application... A compressor based on the analogue envelope detection circuit. 6 carefully developed EQ curves. 6 selected and modified saturation algorithms. A combination of the three modules that creates a unique spectrum of saturation effects. Pricing & Availability 980 SPARK: List Price: $129 MAP: $99 Introductory Promo: $49 An introductory promotion shall be available from May 5th, through May 17th, 2020, at the highlighted price above.

  13. 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.)

  14. Available from Tuesday April 28th, 2020, via Plugivery Distribution and all reputable pro audio resellers worldwide, Plugivery are proud to welcome Pulsar Audio to their increasing list of audio plug-in and software application manufacturing brands. MU LIMITER/COMPRESSOR "An Industry-Standard Tube Compressor" The most faithful emulation of a modern yet legendary tube compressor/limiter – perfect glue for mixing and mastering. There are several reasons to use a variable-bias tube compressor. One is the exceptional compression transparency that this kind of compressor can achieve, even when pushed into extreme gain reduction. Another – and perhaps the most common – is their ability to add cohesion or "glue" to buses, whole mixes and masters. With its unique Topology Preservation Technology, Pulsar Mu sounds objectively identical to the hardware in every production context, and even makes improvements such as an increased signal-to-noise ratio. ECHOREC "The Best Software Emulation of the Binson Echorec 2" Echorec is a software emulation of the iconic echo/delay unit of the same name, produced by the Italian brand Binson in the 1960s. Vintage Echorec devices are known for their saturation, self-oscillation, and oversound, all shaping the music produced in the 70s. They are also, however, known to be fragile and difficult to maintain. The Pulsar Echorec plug-in gives you a faithful emulation of this legendary echo unit; furthermore, many workflow improvements have been added 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. Three different units, in different conditions, have also been precisely modeled, to have all sounds from the cleanest magnetic delay, to the most grunge. These additions and the signature sound of the Binson Echorec 2 make this echo a must-have tool for any mixer who wants to add the subtle analog life, which is sorely lacking in digital delay plug-ins. SMASHER "All Buttons In, All The Time" A straightforward extreme compressor modeled after the "British mode" of a uniquely modified 1176 compressor. Smasher is an unprecedented custom modification of the classic Urei 1176 compressor circuit, a unique formula stumbled upon while fine-tuning other algorithms. While remaining very close to the original circuitry, the modifications built into Smasher will add definition to transients and make your tone more aggressive. Customers love using it to enhance the ambience in drum busses, but there are many more creative uses too. Smasher won’t work on every single track, but where it does, it works magic. Smasher excels at raw and gritty sounds, calling to mind bands like Vulfpeck, The Whitefield Brothers and The Black Keys. System Requirements & Compatibility : macOS 10.8 or above Win 7 or above Intel Core i3 / i5 / i7 / Xeon or AMD equivalent OpengGL 2.0 compatible GPU 4 GB RAM 2 authorizations per license (iLok* machine, 2/3 key, or Cloud) *An iLok account is required, and PACE iLok License Manager installation required for authorization.

  16. Epsom, United Kingdom, April 21st, 2020 – It's been announced today that Synchro Arts, the makers of VocALign and Revoice Pro, are one of only four UK companies to win two 2020 Queen’s Awards for Enterprise, one for Innovation and the other for International Trade. The Queen’s Awards celebrate the success of exciting and innovative businesses which are leading the way with pioneering products or services. A core benefit resulting from innovations delivered by Synchro Arts is that vocal alignment and pitch correction tasks which would have taken hours of manual editing can be performed in minutes or in some cases, instantly. You've most likely heard Synchro Arts products at work on countless platinum-selling and Grammy-winning music albums and on numerous Emmy-winning TV shows like Game of Thrones and Chernobyl and Oscar-winning films like Roma and Once Upon A Time in Hollywood. Synchro Arts was also the only UK company to receive a coveted Technology and Engineering Emmy award in 2019. Managing Director and Founder, Jeff Bloom, commented: “Synchro Arts has always tried to provide audio professionals with tools that help them deliver their very best work by making specific audio editing tasks easier and faster. We’ve achieved this by coming up with solutions that had never even been imagined and many of which remain unique. We are incredibly excited and honoured to receive two such highly distinguished awards from the Queen’s Award for Enterprise organisation, and we gratefully thank and acknowledge the skills and dedication of our amazing team and, of course, our worldwide customers for making this possible."

  18. Linköping, Sweden, April 1st, 2020. A powerful and musical modern plug-in channel strip with the unique vintage sound of Chandler Limited®, the Zener-Bender combines the crisp and colorful character of the Curve Bender Mastering Equalizer with the big, punchy Zener Limiter to bring class, history, and most crucially of all, a phenomenal sonic impact. Component-modeled with Softube’s customary care and experience, these units together can take charge of any mix. Tracing the heritage of the Chandler Limited® Zener-Bender is like discovering an imperial family tree. The roots of the Chandler sound are in EMI consoles, used at Abbey Road from the 60s onwards to record some of the most seminal albums of all time, by the likes of Pink Floyd and The Beatles. And right up to the present day the Curve Bender and Zener Limiter are being used in both hardware and plug-in form by top producers and engineers across records by world-leading artists such as Beyoncé, Lady Gaga, The White Stripes, Foo Fighters, Taylor Swift, and more. The influence of the Chandler Limited® sound cannot be overstated. It shapes the world it rules. Adding the focused channel strip workflow, as well as modern plug-in features such as External Sidechain, Mid/Side Processing, and Channel Linking, the Zener-Bender is a step into the future for your mixes. Bring the mojo and musicality of the Curve Bender, and the sophisticated authority of the Zener Limiter, to your DAW of choice and hear the improvements. The individual plug-ins are included with the Zener-Bender, so sessions featuring the Curve Bender or Zener Limiter alone will remain as royally awesome as ever. Zener Limiter and Zener-Bender For Console 1 In addition to the Zener-Bender, Softube and Chandler are releasing two new products: the Zener Limiter is now available as a standalone plug-in in native format, and Console 1 owners will be able to take advantage of the Zener-Bender’s sound with an exclusive Console 1 version of the strip. In short • Zener Limiter and Curve Bender combined in one channel strip • The historic EMI/Abbey Road sound from the late 60s realized by Chandler Limited®’s hardware and reimagined for a modern studio context • Includes four plug-ins: Zener-Bender, Zener Limiter, Curve Bender Mastering Equalizer and Zener-Bender for Console 1 • Units used on modern classic records by Beyoncé, The White Stripes, and Lady Gaga • Zener Limiter is now available in native format • Curve Bender, Zener Limiter and Zener-Bender For Console 1 plug-ins are also available as separate products • Plug-in exclusive features: External Sidechain, M/S Processing, Channel Linking
  19. Linköping, Sweden, April 9th, 2020: Built for performance, with a soul for invention. The Softube Vermona Random Rhythm plug-in is a random-based, dual-channel, trigger sequencer with an uncommon concept at its core. Modeled to Softube's exacting standards, Random Rhythm makes it possible to experiment with probability while maintaining full control. Whether used as the sole rhythm base or as an invaluable addition to other sequencers, Random Rhythm is a magnifying glass for creativity. Softube and Vermona's Random Rhythm is a blast to play with, with its two rhythm sections housing four sliders apiece that can influence the probability of what will appear in the generated pattern. Building upon the original hardware features, Softube added software exclusives to Random Rhythm that enable saving presets and the states within the session. A formerly arduous process—creating complex, previously undiscoverable rhythms—is now not just simple, but also a thoroughly imaginative endeavor. Vermona's musical legacy goes back decades with the production of amplifiers and organs. The Vermona Random Rhythm sequencer is emblematic of the innovative thinking that has given the company true staying power within the industry. Softube is proud to have worked in collaboration with Vermona to create the fully-endorsed Random Rhythm plug-in available for Softube Modular.

  20. Brainworx Audio is proud to announce availability of bx_console SSL 9000 J — putting the big, deep, and clear sound of Solid State Logic’s legendary large-format 9000 J Series console in the hands of DAW users as an officially-approved plugin with 72 different TMT (patented Tolerance Modeling Technology) emulations, enabling anyone to build a 72-channel analog SSL console in the box by using TMT to harness the power of the most famous British console ever produced for their mixes. Available at www.plugin-alliance.com as of April 8. The SSL 9000 J improved upon its predecessors by offering extended bottom end, a more clean and open top end, and additional distortion-free headroom — quickly making it a favorite among the top producers and engineers who crafted some of the biggest pop, hip-hop, R&B, and orchestral recordings of the 1990s, 2000s, and beyond. Brainworx’s bx_console SSL 9000 J was developed using the original Solid State Logic 9000 J schematics and built by using component modeling in close collaboration with SSL engineers. Additional refinement of the exacting emulation came courtesy of GRAMMY® Award-winning mix engineer Michael Brauer, who helped Brainworx by matching the plugin’s sound and behaviour to the SSL 9000 J he personally used on countless Gold- and Platinum-selling records throughout his celebrated career. Musically, Michael Brauer and other top-tier mix engineers have helped create a rich menu of presets so users of the bx_console SSL 9000 J plugin can get going without necessarily needing to start from scratch. Speedily experience the sound of SSL at its best — in the box, with the console design used on countless major releases from artists including Aerosmith, James Bay, Beyoncé, Mary J. Blige, Joe Bonamassa, Coldplay, DMX, Evanescence, Yo Gotti, Jay-Z, Wyclef Jean, Alicia Keys, John Legend, Madonna, John Mayer, Nicki Minaj, Nas, Rihanna, Santana, Shakira, Britney Spears, The Black Eyed Peas, Usher, Kanye West, and so many more. But better still, bx_console SSL 9000 J has been taken to the next level by Brainworx adding powerful plugin-only features, such as continuously variable THD (Total Harmonic Distortion) and V GAIN (virtual gain) controls to add colorful saturation and/or simulated analog noise independently or globally — changeable across all plugin instances. In addition to the original EQ, DYNAMICS, and FILTERS sections, it also features switchable EQ modes between E- and G-style filters. Notable 9000 Series-only dynamics features such as ‘peak detect’ and expander/gate ‘hold’ are all present and correct, accessible via a scalable UI (User Interface) to adapt to various screen sizes and workflows. With 72 different TMT channel emulations in one plugin, bx_console SSL 9000 J users are working with the only true console emulation — everything else is just a channel strip. Says Michael Brauer: “The bx_console SSL 9000 J was the missing link going hybrid and in the box.” Having spent so long working so successfully with Solid State Logic’s legendary large-format 9000 J Series console in his previous New York studio before bravely moving into a hybrid situation at his new cutting-edge mixing studio, BrauerSound, he should surely know! bx_console SSL 9000 J is available for purchase (as an AAX AudioSuite-, AAX DSP-, AAX Native-, AU-, VST2-, and VST3-supporting plugin for MacOS 10.9 through 10.14 and Windows 7 through 10) at an attractive introductory price of $299.99 USD until April 22, 2020 — rising thereafter to an MSRP (Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price) of $349.00 USD — from here: https://www.plugin-alliance.com/en/products/bx_console_ssl_9000_j.html Owners of bx_console SSL 4000 E or bx_console SSL 4000 G can add the new bx_console SSL 9000 J to their Plugin Alliance account for only $149.99 USD by managing their plugins and various personal offers from here: https://www.plugin-alliance.com/en/manage-plugins.html Owners of bx_console N, bx_console Focusrite SC, bx_digital V3, bx_townhouse, bx_XL V2, elysia alpha compressor, Lindell Audio 80 Series, Mäag Audio EQ4, Shadow Hills Mastering Compressor (any version), SPL IRON, or SPL Transient Designer Plus can add the new bx_console SSL 9000 J to their Plugin Alliance account for just $179.99 USD courtesy of the brand partners by managing their plugins and various personal offers from here: https://www.plugin-alliance.com/en/manage-plugins.html A fully-functional, 14-day trial of bx_console SSL 9000 J is available to anyone registering for a free Plugin Alliance account here: http://www.plugin-alliance.com/en/registration.html bx_console SSL 9000 J is included in Plugin Alliance’s monthly MEGA Bundle subscription (https://www.plugin-alliance.com/en/products/pa-mega-bundle-monthly.html), annual MEGA Bundle subscription (https://www.plugin-alliance.com/en/products/pa-mega-bundle.html), and monthly bx_bundle subscription (https://www.plugin-alliance.com/en/products/brainworx-bx_bundle-monthly.html) at no extra cost!

  22. När du mixar musik handlar det ofta om att hitta precis rätt typ av distorsion vid exakt rätt tillfälle. Waves Multimod Rack ger dig en palett med kraftfulla verktyg att göra just det. Genom att samla Waves distorsions-, mättnads- och överstyrningseffekter i ett och samma rack blir det enkelt att manipulera inkommande ljud med modulationskällor. Och det låter ju inte så kul i skrift, men i praktiken är det ett kraftfullt kreativt multiverktyg i den datordrivna studion. Du kan flytta runt effekter efter eget tycke och därigenom enkelt få fram komplicerade inställningar samtidigt som du har full kontroll över effekterna. Multimodulering i ett nötskal Fem fräsiga effekter Waves har skapat Multimod Rack med tanke på tre produkter ur sin effektportfölj: Abbey Road Saturator Den mest subtila pluggen i samlingen som adderar mättnad och briljans. Kan även bita ifrån och låta nästan elakt. Berzerk En veritabel verktygslåda som låter dig bygga en disteffekt från grunden. Kombinerar distorsion, överstyrning, karaktär och dynamik. MDMX Fuzz, Overdrive och Screamer Lägger till tre olika sorters distorsion inklusive användbara funktioner som oktavering. När effekterna sitter i Multimod-racket kan de användas i många fler situationer än att bearbeta gitarrljud. Rikligt med förinställningar Du kan botanisera länge och väl bland pluggens förinställningar. Förutom fabriksinställningarna så har en lång rad namnkunniga producenter bidragit med sina mixtrick. Istället för fantasinamn har förinställningarna tydliga anmärkningar om de ska användas för att snyggdista en Les Paul, trasha till en trumloop eller få en elbas att skaka, för att ta ett par exempel ur den digra högen. Det uppskattas verkligen. Grymt gratisgodis Vill du lägga till traditionella effekter som delay, reverb och chorus till ditt rack så följer det med sådana kostnadsfritt, inklusive förinställningar. Det går även utmärkt att bara använda gratispluggarna för att, som man ju vill, dra på med ett trippelt modulerbart delay. Modulera mera All modulering kan synkas till den interna klockan i ditt inspelningsprogram, eller köras i friläge. Moduleringshastigheten går även att ställa i taktarter, fjärdedelar, åttondelar och så vidare. Hur moduleringen uppträder går att välja… …med en vågform. …eller en programmerbar sekvens. …eller att du ritar en vågform själv på frihand. Du kan ha fyra olika moduleringsskällor igång samtidigt. Mångsidigt koncept Sammanfattningsvis ser vi framförallt tre fördelaktiga användningsområden för produkten: All sorts hård musik med framträdande distorsion, både på enskilda instrument, sång eller trumpaket. Används med viss försiktighet och håll koll på utsignalen. Mixning av alla typer av produktioner. Modulerad mättnad (saturering) och mild distorsion ger energi åt en livlös mix på ett kick. Moderna urbana beats. Exempelvis kan en 808-bas fås att mullra (eller skrika) som aldrig förr. Det virtuella racket är gratis om du redan äger några av Waves distorsionspluggar och i annat fall kostar de från cirka en femhundring stycket och uppåt. Läs mer om Waves Multimod Rack > Studio använder sponsrade länkar i denna artikel. Genom att använda dem och köpa via dem så stöder du Studios arbete med att ta fram redaktionellt material som du kan läsa gratis.
  23. FREDAGSTIPSET: Det finns idag en uppsjö pluggar till pc och Mac, de flesta med syftet att underlätta och bättra på din studiokvalité. Med detta sagt behöver det inte kosta skjortan att utöka ditt pluggbibliotek. Faktum är att det många gånger inte kostar något alls. För ett antal månader sedan skrev jag om Mina 5 favoritpluggar för mixning och mastring, en del penningslukande och en del lite billigare. Dessa digitala hjälpredor ligger mig fortfarande varmt om hjärtat och rekommenderas starkt. Dagen till ära har jag plockat fram fem färska gratispluggar som förhoppningsvis sätter lite sprutt på kreativiteten. Med detta sagt vill jag också passa på att slå ett slag för Mixakuten, en kostnadsfri tjänst för din mix eller master, som med största sannolikhet drar igång här på Studio redan nästa vecka. Må inspirationen flöda! Coffee - The PUn En gratis germanium baserad equalizer med inspiration från Pultec. Pluggen har en varm vintagekaraktär och fungerar ypperligt på allt som behöver fetas till eller mjukas upp. Samtidigt lämpar sig Coffee - The PUn till när du vill ha lite extra luft och subtil saturation. Sång, trummor, bas, akustiska gitarrer och pianon är självklara användningsområden.

Originalpedalen tillverkas inte längre och sällan dyker upp på andrahandsmarknaden, vilket gör denna mjukvaruemluering lite extra spännande. Echobox D7 gör sig speciellt bra på gitarr men ger även spännande och oväntade resultat på sång, eller vad som helst egentligen.

Perfekt för att liva upp en torr tagning eller samplade trummor. Med SnareBuzz 2.0 blir det helt enkelt lite mer levande.

Nu har det populära mätverktyget nått version 3.8 innehållandes diverse förbättringar och funktioner. Till nyheterna hör bland annat bättre hantering för presets och färgval.

Tanken med en summeringsmixern är att ge bättre separation och ett subtilt djup mellan kanalerna. Huruvida detta faktiskt alltid är en fördel eller inte är upp till var och en att avgöra.

Eller om du hellre föredrar att diskutera om mixning i avdelningen "Mixning och mastring" på Studios forum här! Fredagstipset är en återkommande serie där Studios skribent Jon Rinneby varje fredag delar med sig av tips inom bland annat inspelning och mixning. Här hittar du samtliga fredagstips.
  24. SANTA CRUZ, CA, USA: Plugin Alliance, supporting all major plugin formats and uniting some of the best- known international audio companies under one virtual roof, is proud to announce founding partner Brainworx Audio’s acquisition of the assets of Wolfgang Palm’s prestigious PPG synthesizer brand. The trailblazing Hamburg-based company founded by Wolfgang Palm first found fame and fortune in its initial incarnation throughout the Eighties and beyond by bringing the distinctive sound of wavetable synthesis to the musical masses and also impacting the MI industry with its innovative PPG Wave hybrid digital/ analogue synthesizer series and associated advances. These included the unique (unreleased) Realizer — quite possibly the world’s first virtual instrument (in 1986), albeit as a proprietary hardware hybrid! Software seriously came calling from 2012 onwards when Wolfgang Palm returned to prominence, producing new PPG products. What a legacy. PPG synthesizers have musically made their mark onstage and in the studio with an array of notable artists such as a-Ha, Alphaville, David Bowie, Depeche Mode, Thomas Dolby, Frankie Goes To Hollywood, Jean-Michel Jarre, Mike & The Mechanics, Gary Numan, Pet Shop Boys, Rush, Talk Talk, Tangerine Dream, Tears For Fears, Ultravox, Stevie Wonder, and many more. Thanks to Brainworx Audio’s acquisition of the assets of Wolfgang Palm’s prestigious PPG synthesizer brand, that legacy is all set to thrive. Plans are already afoot by Brainworx Audio to update Wolfgang Palm’s PPG products in close collaboration with the man himself, universally recognized as the originator of wavetable synthesis! Together they will take the PPG brand and advance its digital products into the future, following Wolfgang Palm’s planned retirement at the end of March 2020 — after 50 years in the creative field of sound synthesis! Signing an agreement with Plugin Alliance and Brainworx Audio owner Dirk Ulrich ultimately lets Wolfgang Palm put his (well- deserved) retirement plan into action, happy in the knowledge that his ‘baby’ will be in good hands. Wolfgang Palm puts it this way: “I am very glad to have found Brainworx and Plugin Alliance, who appreciate my work from the past and want to continue my legacy. They have a great team of competent developers, product specialists, marketing, and all that is needed to make a company successful. I support their work to make the transition as smooth as possible, and it will be exciting to see how this evolves. Also, I think that this collaboration will result in a much wider audience than before.” Indeed, it is a great honor for Brainworx Audio to be joining forces with Wolfgang Palm — truly a legend in his own right, and continue to break boundaries in the world of virtual instruments. “We are proud that Wolfgang Palm put his brand and product into our hands,” declares Dirk Ulrich, ending on a high note: “We will make sure to carry on his legacy with the respect it deserves and we are looking forward to evolving the brand and products for years to come.” For more in-depth information about the trailblazing work of Wolfgang Palm and the prestigious PPG’s past, present, and future, feel free to check out Plugin Alliance’s interview with the man himself here: https://www.plugin-alliance.com/en/blog/blogpost/items/wolfgang-palm-interview.html
