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.

Electron EQ is a tube equalizer inspired by popular EQ’s that have been in top studios for decades.

This bad boy is full of cool features, like 4x oversampling, mid/side processing, and meticulous tube-overdrive circuit emulation.

  • Low Boost – Low shelf filter of original design controlled by the “freq” dial near it from 22 Hz to 300 Hz by 0 dB to +10 dB.
  • Low Atten – Low cut filter just above the Low Boost filter. It helps define and fatten the low-end, by 0 dB to -10 dB.
  • High Boost – High shelf filter of original design controlled by the “freq” dial near it from 1000 Hz to 16000 Hz by 0 dB to +10 dB.
  • High Atten – High cut filter just above the High Boost filter. It helps define and round off the high-end, by 0 dB to -10 dB.
  • Bandwidth – Controls the “Q” factor, or bandwidth of the low and high filters, 0 being the most narrow and +10 being the widest.
  • LP – Low-pass filter from 20000 Hz to 3000 Hz.
  • Drive – Controls the drive parameter for a meticulously modeled tube circuit with parallel processing to subtly dial in tube saturation. When the drive slider is at 0 dB, the processing turns off to save CPU usage when the effect is not desired.
  • Trim – Output volume control.
  • EQ In/Out – Toggles the EQ processing on or off without resetting the current state of the filter’s boost and atten settings.
  • OS – Toggles 4x oversampling on or off. Toggling oversampling on will set the LP filter to 19000 Hz if it is currently set to 20000 Hz. This takes care of some sampling rate math and lets you hear the high end difference. It would be best to leave the LP filter lower than 19000 while oversampling is on.
  • Stereo Mode – This allows you to choose between mid/side/left/right/stereo processing. Use this to remove low end from the sides or add brightness to the sides, whatever cool mid/side/left/right/stereo processing you like to do! This effect will of course perform the best on a stereo source.
  • Setting a filter to 0 dB will turn off processing to save CPU for unused filters.
  • The plugin will save it’s window size when you hit save in your DAW and it will recall the size on the next startup.

Bedroom Compressor by ViatorDSP 0 (0)

Bedroom Compressor is a a diode bridge-based compressor.

This compressor has some great features like a blend knob and a high-pass filter side-chain. This compressor expects a signal in dBU’s, so -18 to -15 is the sweet spot!  It is based on a famous channel strip re-issue.

  • Make-Up Gain – Output volume control to make up for the compressed signal.
  • High-Pass Filter – High-pass filter with a cutoff range between 20 to 350 Hz.
  • High-Pass Side-Chain – Toggle between the filter in input mode or side-chain mode. In filter mode (button off), the filter will act like a normal filter on the input. In side-chain mode (button on),  the filter will only affect the signal that the threshold checks, which means you can filter out bass from the threshold so that it doesn’t hit the compressor as hard, but the bass will still pass through. This is great if you want to compress your drums without the kick affecting the compression amount.
  • In Button – Turns the compressor on or off.
  • Threshold – What level the compressor kicks in.
  • Ratio – How much the signal is turned down when compressed.
  • Speed – Combination of attack and release parameters, from slow – auto.
  • Blend – Mix between the dry and compressed signal.

LV-60 by ViatorDSP 0 (0)

LV-60 is an analog graphic equalizer.

  • 10 filter bands with 12 dB of negative and positive gain.
  • Low-shelf, high-shelf and 8 peak notches with two having the option to be shelves or bell shapes by toggling the bell buttons below the filters.
  • Analog-inspired saturation circuit. When the drive is set to 0, the drive is bypassed, any values higher than 0 engage the saturation circuit.
  • Proportional Q controlled by the gain of each filter. Gain values above 0 gradually thin the Q value. The negative end of the gain range has a much thinner Q than the positive end, so it’s great for cutting unwanted frequencies.
  • Trim knob to control the overall volume of the plugin.
  • Fully DAW-compatible automation parameters for each control.
  • Toggle button to turn off shadows. This helps under-powered laptops that lag when using the user interface.

ViatorDSP LV50A free equalizer effect plugin (VST3/AU) 0 (0)

ViatorDSP has announced the release of a free equalizer plugin that combines the sound and curves of two different hardware EQ’s that have defined music studios across the decades.

This EQ is inspired by real EQ’s, but it definitely has its own flavor. It sounds great on anything, but I think it’s great on the master bus, especially since the high and low filters are inspired by a famous mastering hardware EQ.

LV50A features

  • Oversampling of 8x when oversampling is turned on from the top-right dropdown menu. This makes a huge difference on the top end frequencies.
  • 4 EQ bands with proportional Q and 12 dB of boost and attenuation.
  • When the gain of a band is set to 0 dB, the filter circuit disables, which saves loads of CPU if you aren’t using the band anyway.
  • Saturation algorithm on the output, the EQ pushes into it. When the drive is set to 0 dB, the circuit disables to save on CPU.
  • The low and high bands can be a shelf or bell depending on the state of the button under each band.
  • Reset button to set all band’s gains to 0 dB.
  • High and low pass filters to filter out the very top and bottom frequencies that aren’t super useful. Toggle the filters button under the drive. These filters really make a huge difference when oversampling is on.
  • Phase inversion button to flip the phase of the entire circuit. This is useful for parallel processing.
  • Trim gain to boost or attenuate the volume of the entire plugin.
