The Valley People Dyna-mite from Softube is a multi-function dynamics plug-in that faithfully replicates the original Valley People Dyna-mite hardware, a tool capable of limiting/compressing, expanding, gating, keying, ducking and de-essing.
Designed in the 80's, the original hardware was a problem solver. Today it maintains that function while at the same time becoming a creative tool. Two sidechain modes allow for ducking or following a track. Both internal and external sidechain operation is supported.
The DS-FM mode inserts a high frequency boost to the detector which makes it perfect for de-essing or limiting troublesome cymbals. In expansion mode, it helps to trigger the gate for high frequency signals, useful for preventing gate closure on hi-hats.
Three different detector types give the plug-in three distinctive sounds, with a choice of an aggressive Gate mode, a fast all-round Peak mode, or the slower AVG mode. A faithfully modeled output stage preserves the clipping of the output stage that was a big part of the Dyna-mite sound.
Peak and average limiting, including negative ratio (-20:1) limiting and detector HF filtering (for de-essing)
Hard or soft expansion with extreme gate settings and detector HF filtering
Ducking or keying modes with external side chain (where available)
Threshold knob with auto make-up gain
Release ranging from 0.05 to 5 seconds/20dB with Anticipatory Release Computation (ARC) to reduce pumping
Output volume with accurately modeled output distortion and clip LED
Innovative Range knob that controls maximum amount of expansion or limiting
Built-in interactive guide that displays current settings and active mode
