Arctican have announced the release of Native Linux 32-bit and 64-bit VST and standalone versions of The Pilgrim and The Function.
The Pilgrim is a filter ideal for both live and studio situations. It has a high-pass and low-pass filter programmed into one dial, and allows a seamless sweep between the two. It works similar to the ‘Pioneer DJM’ mixers, albeit with a little extra functionality: a wet/dry dial which can also be used as a basic equaliser/shelf filter. The frequency pass range is from 60Hz (lowpass) to 19kHz (highpass).
Low CPU usage.
Easy to use.
HP/LP/Shelf filter and basic EQ in 2 dials.
Perfect for live use.
The Function can manipulate a stereo signal giving complete control over the output. Each channel (left & right) can be manipulated in many different ways. You can pan each channel to either speaker, and invert the phase. You can also independently adjust the gain for each channel. This is very useful for dodgy recordings with phase and pan issues.
These Linux versions were ported by the team at DISTRHO.
A different breed of imaging processor, Spread Eagle clones your stereo input and gives you full pan, level, and filter (low or high pass) control over three copies of the signal before merging it back together into a stereo output. With an additional toggle for phase inversion you can mix, match and blend different sounding copies of your source to get that perfect stereo field placement.
Longcat Audio Technologies has announced the release of H3D, their new 3D audio binaural plug-in for Digital Audio Workstations.
Aimed at musicians or podcasts producers, Longcat’s H3D inserts in major audio software (such as Cubase, Live, Pyramix, Nuendo or REAPER), and allows the user to create immersive 3D mixes for headphones, by visually animating a large number of audio tracks in a full-3D interface.
3D object-based mixing: use the 3D interface to visually place and animate sounds.
Longcat Audio H3D technology: when listening on headphones, H3D allows panning sound in 3D all around the listener’s head.
Unique HRTF processing: H3D uses Longcat own processed HRTF filters in order to achieve the best spatialization effects.
H3D Presence: independently adjust H3D’s immersion effect using the Presence parameter.
Automation: fully automate parameters and 3D animation of audio tracks.
No tedious settings: Just insert H3D plugins and start moving sounds in 3D.
BassLane is used to narrow the stereo width of low frequencies in tracks and mixes. It’s a simple, yet handy utility that allows you to regain bass tightness and prevent “muddy” mixes caused by a too wide low end.
Basslane is also very useful when mastering and especially when mastering for vinyl records. It allows you to transparently prevent problematic stereo content in the low frequencies. The easy-to-use interface features a range of monitoring options allowing precise fine tuning while auditioning the processing at different stages.
Changes in Basslane v1.5:
Fixed Dual/Multi core compatibility problems.
Fixed inaccuracy in 12 dB/Oct filter.
Improved monitoring and metering.
Extended range of Gain (Vol. Trim) to allow both boost and attenuation.
