Brainworx bx_boom! - Bass Drum Enhancement Plug-In (Download)

The bx_boom! from Brainworx is a simple bass drum sound enhancement plug-in featuring only two parameters and an intuitive graphic design for tuning, attenuating, or boosting the impact of a bass drum sound. The plug-in can be used on individual sounds, but also to treat the bass drum sound in a stereo drum loop. The mono version is a very easy and useful EQ when used on a bass-drum insert.

Bass drum enhancement for single tracks or loops
Three modes - low, mid, high
Brainworx filters
Boost and attenuate the bass-drum in a final mix or in a drum loop
Fully automatable
Dedicated bypass switch
Mouse over feature allows for adjusting parameters by holding the mouse over the bass-drum or the pedal and turning the mouse wheel
Direct Access - type a value directly into the text field

Brainworx bx_dynEQ V2 - Dynamic Equalizer Plug-In (Download)

The bx_ dynEQ V2 from Brainworx is a dynamic EQ plug-in using innovative M/S features and an Inverse Mode that allows for results not possible with standard EQs. A dynamic EQ is a filter that is not limited to a specific gain level, but which changes gain settings according to the dynamics of a trigger signal. This trigger signal can be the whole signal running through the plug-in or just a filtered part of that signal, using the internal filtered sidechain.

The plug-in comprises three parts: bx_dynEQ mono, bx_dynEQ stereo (L/R) and bx_dynEQ stereo (M/S). The M/S mode features a "cross-feed" setting which allows the mid and side signals to "trigger" each other. A comprehensive selection of filter types is included. Preset knobs in the GUI enable the engineer to easily find starting points for any desired processing. In addition to being an EQ, the software can also function as a dynamics processor.

Single- and two-band dynamic EQ plug-in
Mono, multi-mono and stereo modes
Brainworx filters
Complete set of filter types for both main audio path and sidechain, including low- and high-shelving, peak bands, band-pass filters, high-pass, low-pass, bass-shift, presence-shift
Solo modes
Inverse mode
External sidechain input
M/S stereo width control on any stereo channel
M/S cross-feed feature for sophisticated results
EQ panel with multi-mode EQ display (actual EQ-curves and sidechain filter curves)
Mouse over feature allows for adjusting parameters by holding the mouse over the bass-drum or the pedal and turning the mouse wheel
Direct Access - type a value directly into the text field
Fully automatable
Dedicated bypass switch

Brainworx bx_limiter - Limiter with Saturation Plug-In (Download)

The bx_limiter from Brainworx is a simple but effective low latency limiter plug-in with features that make it an excellent mastering tool, but also useful for mixing duties. Use the dry/wet control to smash up drum beats, pull up vocal details in mixes, control bass sounds, etc., and then seamlessly blend from linked to unlinked mode for stereo mastering.

Additional processing can be achieved by driving individual tracks or stems hard into the limiter to trigger saturation while still maintaining overall levels. Parallel processing can create vintage drum and vocal sounds or special effects of all kinds. And in this case it is important to keep multiple-track peak levels under control, rather than trying to do all the work on the master buss.

Accurate limiter for mono, stereo and multi-channel signals
CPU friendly
Low latency of just 2 ms or less (depending on sample rate and system)
Mix (dry/wet) control blends processed and unprocessed audio
Seamless Channel Link - blend between unlinked and linked peak detection
Output dim conveniently adjusts output level in any mix session
Click Fader Link - drive signals into limiter while maintaining levels
Adding saturation increases perceived loudness
Four settings per preset automate complex set ups
Thirty-two steps of undo/redo
Adjustable release times
Algorithms and features taken from the bx_XL V2 M/S mastering limiter

elysia mpressor - Compressor Plug-In for Native Systems (Download)

The mpressor from elysia is a native based plug-in that closely emulates the company's hardware creative compressor. The original's all discrete circuitry and special characters have been translated into software in great detail, delivering a universal compressor as well as a dynamic effects machine.

Functions include Auto Fast that makes life easy even on longer attack settings and the Anti Log feature offers an alternative release curve that can be engaged for instant pumping effects. In addition to standard ratios, the plug-in also provides negative values.

The gain reduction limiter regulates the virtual control voltage and keeps even the most extreme settings under control and the additional filter is a perfect for changing the sound character of the compressed signal. An external sidechain input adds further flexibility.

All the major plug-in formats are supported for both 32- and 64-bit operating systems.

Software emulation of the company's hardware compressor
Switchable Auto Fast semi automation always provides perfect attack and release times based on the values set by the user, even with complex material
Anti Log provides an alternative release curve that follows an antilogarithmic course instead of the standard linear progress, and produces a much more audible effect such as pumping
Negative ratios can produce heavy pumping, backward sounds, plus other interesting compression effects
Niveau Filter specializes in shaping the tonal characteristics of a track very effectively with very fine nuances
On-board, frequency selective sidechain filter
Gain reduction limiter
Mousewheel support for setting parameters

SPL DrumXchanger - Drum Hit Replacement Plug-In (Download)

DrumXchanger from SPL is a drum replacement plug-in that uses the company's Transient Designer technology for sound recognition, allowing the processor to faithfully recognize even the faintest ghost notes, regardless of their dynamic level. The plug-in actually includes two Transient Designer processors, one for the original and one for the sampled sound.

Two different thresholds can be set for a more accurate recognition of drum hits - a level threshold and a transient threshold. The sample plays back as soon as both of these values are reached, resulting in simple operation of the software.

Additionally, the software is a powerful tool for optimizing drums tracks in its own right. The processing possibilities without the need to replace any sounds are almost limitless, while sound replacement can be done gradually in order to mix both the original and the sampled sound to taste.

Phase accurate processing
Mix samples freely
Ducking function for the original signal
High and low pass filter on each module
Transient Designer on both the original and the sample module
Dynamic control to adjust the sample's loudness
Real-time +/- one octave pitch sifting
Delay control for precise replacement
Software editor for creating custom multisamples in SPLX format

SPL Transient Designer - Level-Independent Dynamic Processing Plug-In (Download)

Transient Designer from SPL is a dynamics processor plug-in modeled after the company's well respected analog hardware. It approaches the issue in a very different way to conventional compressors in that it has two main controls that can reshape the attack and sustain characteristics of any audio file.

Amplifying or attenuating these two components of a sound opens up much greater possibilities for sound shaping than can be achieved using a chain of compressors. Level-independent processing means that threshold setting is not necessary, while other common controls, such as ratio or parameters for time-constants, are automated and optimized in a musical manner.

Additionally, internal code supports mouse wheel control for the rotary controls. Place the mouse cursor over a control and move the scroll wheel to adjust the setting.

SPL-modeled plug-in version of the original analog Transient Designer
Attack can be amplified or attenuated by up to 15 dB while sustain can be amplified or attenuated by up to 24 dB
Increase or decrease the impact of percussive sources
Reduces or increases room sound or preexisting reverb on virtually any source
Excellent gate substitute, minimizes microphone bleed in seconds
Essential mix tool that's simple to use

Vertigo VSC-2 - Virtual VCA Compressor Plug-In (Download)

The VSC-2 from Vertigo is a compressor plug-in based on the company's well respected VSC-2 Quad Discrete Compressor hardware. Made in close cooperation with Brainworx, the plug-in recreates all the fine nuances of the flagship VCA compressor.

An emphasis on precision makes the VSC-2 a first choice for mastering applications and the stereo mix bus
Although developed as a stereo bus compressor, each channel provides a complete set of controls which also makes the VSC-2 a dual mono "must have" in recording and mix situations
Offers the same flexibility and precision in the stereo version, and to emulate the dual mono approach of the hardware, a true mono version of the plug-in has been included as well
The original design is a nod toward the best VCA based compressors of the '70s and '80s
