9-Mar-2019: Voxengo Elephant version 4.6 is now available for download. Voxengo Elephant is a mastering limiter plugin for professional audio and sound production applications, available in AAX, AudioUnit, VST and VST3 plug-in formats (including native 64-bit support), for macOS (v10.7 and later), and Windows computers. Changes in version 4.6: Reduced loud pop with "Eval" enabled on playback start. Added Retina support on macOS, and automatic high-resolution UI size adjustment on Windows. 10% lower CPU usage on AVX2-capable processors (in 64-bit mode). Elephant is a highly competitive plug-in for mastering applications: it features a variety of limiter modes that can be deeply customized, and a comprehensive set of level metering tools, including headroom estimation and K-metering. Elephant's built-in linear-phase oversampling is an important element in achieving high-quality peak limiting and loudness maximization without inter-sample overshoots. Elephant limiter can be used for mixing and mastering of both stereo and multi-channel music and sound material, at any standard sample rate. Limiting process can be visualized both as gain reduction meter and real-time graph. Elephant features: Transparent signal limiting action 10 predefined limiter modes Limiter mode editor Optional release stage Noise-shaped bit-depth converter DC offset removal filter Waveform graph view Stereo and multi-channel processing Internal channel routing Channel grouping Up to 8x linear-phase oversampling 64-bit floating point processing Preset manager Undo/redo history A/B comparisons Contextual hint messages All sample rates support 24 ms compensated processing latency Retina and HighDPI support Demo version of Voxengo Elephant can be downloaded at the Voxengo web site: http://www.voxengo.com/product/elephant/?eref=ml
A secret weapon to some, a hidden treasure to the rest, the Valley People Dyna-mite is a Swiss Army knife limiter/expander design with incredible sound and unique character that has inspired engineers to be inventive with their dynamics processing for decades. That said, it’s always been a bit of a pig to deal with. It’s anything but user-friendly. Genius, but impossible. So we’ve boiled it down into a simple, modern package. Meet Dyna-mite Slam, and Dyna-mite Gate! Updated & expanded Paul Buff built custom gear for Frank Zappa. Need we say more? The cool factor is tangible. By the time he patented his TA-101 VCA (‘The Electronic Gain Control Device’ – the heart of the Dyna-mite) in 1980, his reputation was already unimpeachable. The Dyna-mite is essentially a limiter or an expander, but through a near-unfathomable combination of switch positions, it is capable of more or less any manipulation of dynamics from gating to RMS compression, from keying and ducking to ridiculously extreme levelling. Now, however, the user can find all of these magical combinations easily with two new plug-ins, Slam and Gate. Slam takes care of all of the downward stuff – the compression and limiting – in as close to a one-knob format as Dyna-mite could ever become, while Gate deals with the upward operations – the gating and expanding. Control bleed in a subtle manner, add punch to a snare, crush a rock vocal into submission, or duck a synth bass around a kick. All these great functions and more, and no need to read the manual. The original plug-in is included (with a slightly updated look) for experts, but all the joy of the Dyna-mite, and crucially, none of the headaches, come forward in Slam and Gate. And best of all, existing owners of the original plug-in will get the additions as a free upgrade! https://www.softube.com/
