Screen Shot 2021-10-14 at 1.15.51 AM

BT Clipper is a limiter / clipper with three different clipping voices and a mid-range tone knob.

Use this to give your instrument or mix edge and natural compression.

  • Input/output faders. Drive into the clipper and trim the output.
  • Mid-range tone knob with selectable frequencies between 300 and 5kHz, gain knob to attenuate or boost the mid frequency.
  • Toggle to select between the mid-range tone knob coming before or after the clipping circuit.
  • Phase toggle to invert the phase.
  • Drive knob to control the amount of clipping.
  • Menu to select between hard, soft, and analog clipping.
  • Auto gain compensation when adding drive.

Husserl2 Mocha Edition by Yofiel 0 (0)

husserl2Mocha

A 32-voice complex waveset synthesizer with 5D filter,
internal 151×143 modulation matrix, and more

The Mocha Edition enhances Husserl2 with a more soothing, less vibrant interface. Husserl2 continues to aim to be one of the best free synths you can get. It took a couple of years to make, but I am retired and have no need for more money, so it will stay free. This is not a ‘beta buggy’ version to build a customer base before I start selling it. It will stay free. And I do not require registration or email to download it, which apparently is very unusual these days.

Because Husserl2 takes advantage of all the cores available on your machine, it cannot run inside plugin hosts, which only support one core thread per plugin. As a result, this is a standalone app with native, ASIO, and ReWire client drivers for connection to all current standard DAWs. Although the app includes anti-aliased oscillators and a 4x-oversampled filter, for professional applications a sample rate of at least 88kHz is recommended to provide crisp results in the C8 octave, but if you only play to C7 then standard sample rates are sufficient.

Features include:

  • Fully Compiled 64-bit Multithreaded Audio Path, carefully optimized for performance without sacrificing quality.
  • Up to 32 voices with custom LRU voice allocator; base CPU usage ~10%, +1% per playing voice, on 4GHz i7 @44.1kHz sample rate with Windows10 DirectX drivers.
  • 2 Oscillators with dual contour, phase, ring modulation, frequency modulation, oscillator mix, plus gate/osc sync controls. EPTR-antialiased square/pulse and saw/triangle waveforms are followed by 44 wavesets, including filter sweeps, morphs, formants, and harmonic bundles. The dual-axis spline-interpolated wavesets contain 127 tables of 256 sample points for each continuously variable waveform.
  • ‘5d’ SVF Filter with continuously variable cutoff, resonance, 0/2/4 pole mix, LP/BP/HP mix, and 4x-oversampled saturation provides a virtual infinite sound palette.
  • Compressor and limiter with polyphonic and monophonic modes.
  • Internal Modulation Matrix with 143 modulation destinations and 151 sources including:
    • 3 ADSR Envelopes with graphical control of velocity shaping.
    • 3 LFOs: two polyphonic, one monophonic linked to mod wheel; sine/double-sine, square/pulse, saw/tri, stepped, and random with contour shaping, freq mod, amp mod, and sync.
    • Sample and Hold with trigger-level control.
    • XY Pad to mix up to four modulation sources to any modulation destination.
    • 120 Mapped MIDI Controllers, plus bend, modwheel + LFO, note pitch, velocity, and #notes.
  • 50 Microtuning Tables.
  • Preset Manager with simple button controls, preset naming, and bank load/save.
  • Lots of Demo Presets. Notes may be stored and recalled with presets too.
  • MIDI file player built in, with channel selection.
  • MIDI I/O: note on/off, MIDI clock, program change, pitch bend, all 90 panel controls, and standard MIDI controllers such as pedals, etc.
  • Optimized Graphical Display of oscillator waveforms, output waveform, filter curve, and modulation values for most recent voice; velocity display of all active voices.
  • Resizable Panel. Zoom in or out as much as you like. Synth reopens the way you closed it.
  • Interactive Help built in for wavesets, filter characteristics, microtuning tables, and with complete description of all panel controls.
  • Open Source distribution in Cycling74 Max8, if you wish to change it in any way. sacrificing quality.

1632417863_lm_screenshot

LoudMax is a Look-Ahead Brickwall Loudness Maximizer Plugin with a clean transparent sound. It is designed to retain the original character of the music as much as possible even at high compression levels.

Release notes v1.40:

• Peak hold function for the gain reduction meter.
• Improved meter responsiveness.
• VST3: Fixing meters not being displayed on some hosts.
• VST3: Added bypass functionality.
• VST3: Avoid unnecessary latency changes.
• Added legacy 32 Bit version for Win XP and Vista.
• Improved algorithm.

Usage notes for VST2 / VST3 / AU:
• Hold down the Shift key to adjust the sliders more precisely.
• Click in the lower right corner to toggle the GUI size between Normal and Large. Available only if the host supports resizing. Not available on Windows and Mac legacy versions.
• The “Fader Link” function works reliably only in the graphical user interface. In the “generic” or “controls” view of some DAW hosts, the link works, but the output fader change is not displayed.
• Installation instructions can be found in the readme in the zip file or through the links in the tutorials section.

Main range of application:
• Audio Mastering
• Output Limiter/Maximizer for web radio stations

Controls:
• One slider for threshold, one for the output level.
• Meters for input, output and gain reduction in relation to the desired threshold.
• Gain reduction meter with peak hold marker. Not available on legacy versions.
• Link: Output slider will be coupled to the threshold slider.
• ISP: Inter-sample peak detection for true peak limiting.

Features:
• True Peak Limiting (Further information for ISP below)
• Supported Samplerates: 2kHz – 384kHz
• Latency: 1.25ms (+ 6 samples with ISP)
• Look-Ahead and Attack Time: 1.25ms
• Release Time: Automatic – depending on the input signal
• No audible distortion
• Possible overdrive: 740dB
• Very low CPU usage

mac_screenshot_02

Ultra clean peak compressor/limiter with punchy attack, musical release, and optional lookahead smoothing, for tracks or busses. Zero/low latency and low CPU. Warm distortion at extreme settings.

Features:

  • Fast or same-sample attack times that never sound “clicky”, even in zero latency mode.
  • Innovative digital envelope detection algorithm allows for much lower distortion than typical peak compressors (see a plot of a 1kHz hard limited sine wave in zero latency mode).
  • Optional lookahead FIR gain smoothing for an even cleaner sound.
  • True zero attack (same-sample) when “0.0 ms” is selected.
  • Dual parallel release stage with musical, highly history-dependent behaviour. Avoids use of multiple compressors in series.
  • Easy sidechain filtering options for common mixing situations.
  • Low CPU, fully 64-bit DSP code, making full use of SSE instructions. Insert on every track without a second thought.
  • Zero latency with lookahead off. With lookahead on, compensated latency of 1.5ms.
  • No phase shift: can be used in parallel.

SmackLabs SL473 free vintage vinyl disc cutting compressor plugin 0 (0)

SL473-VintageVinylDiscCuttingCompressor

“Based off of a VCA design, this compressor has a unique compressor/limiter/expander function that can shape the dynamics of your source. This compressor was the main compressor for vinyl disc cutting from the late 1970’s and on. Known for transparent clean compression, you can really compress the source without the typical negative effects.

The expander controls are found to the left with yellow knobs. The expander has a fixed attack and ratio, giving the user control of the Threshold and Recovery of the expander. The compressor is controlled by the black knobs, with the ratio knob being red. The compressor has a fixed threshold, to manage the fixed threshold, the user can add gain with the “Compr Gain” knob.

Like the original hardware, this compressor has a small learning curve. But once you get accustom to how this compressor works, you will see how it deals with dynamics in a extremely musical way.

This compressor really excels on Mastering, Mix Bus, Drum Groups, and Vocals.”
