SpikeQ Transient Shaper

 SpikeQ is a frequency based transient shaper.

As a distant cousin of Drum Snapper, it features the same attitude for increasing the Attack of a source, but expands it with the ability to enhance certain frequency areas on the attack portion of a sound.

Do you have a source that is too buried in a mix?

Do you want to make certain frequencies pop?

SpikeQ enables you to add huge boosts of eq but not making them too boomy and loose (in the low end) or too splashy (in the high end).

  • It features 4 semi-parametric eq bands (low and high shelves and 2 peak bands);
  • 2x Amount to use on sources with low dynamic range or to have extreme effects;
  • A Clipper to avoid big spikes on the audio;
  • Oversampling for the clipper section, to avoid aliasing;
  • Attack and Release controls to shape the behavior of the transient shaper;
  • Output gain (pre-clipper);
  • Dry/Wet control to mix between the processed and unprocessed signal;

T-Force Delay

 T-Force Delay is a dual mode delay effect device. It can be used to add an echo effect to your sound. Its feedback signal can be modulated with filters and a degrader, to emulate the old vinage style analog tape echo effects. It can produce simple stereo delays, but also can be switched to ping pong mode for that typical left/right pingpong echo effect. it  also has a flanger to create some crazy flanger effects on the feedback signal.

Burier Saturation

 Burier is a saturation/filter combo.

Burier has a large central “BURY” knob controlling the amount of saturation applied. Below that is a mix dial to blend the wet/dry signal, an output dial, and a link switch that links the output gain to the BURY level. When linked, the output dial will adjust automatically to compensate for any level adjustments you make. The filter section features IIR (Infinite Impulse Responses) low cut and high cut filters.

Inphonik PCM2612 Retro Decimator Unit

PCM2612 Retro Decimator Unit is a free bitcrusher effect. It is based on Inphonik’s previously released RYM2612 Iconic FM Synthesizer plugin, which emulates the Sega Genesis sound chip.

The PCM2612 is based on the PCM playback feature of Inphonik’s RYM2612 Iconic FM Synthesiser. The RYM2612 is an emulation of Yamaha’s YM2612 sound chip famously used in the Sega Genesis.

The PCM2612 has a large central knob that controls the amount of 8-bit decimation applied to the source. Below is a mono switch, a dry/wet mix knob, and an output filtering switch. The output filtering switch lets you choose between the Crystal Clear digital output and the Legacy line output of the Sega Genesis Model 1 output circuit.

Low Wave Studios Track24

Track24 focuses on tape saturation without the more mechanical artifacts like wow/flutter.

Technically, that should mean you get the warmth without any of the other noise. Track24 has a tone section offering four different filter presets inspired by two different tape machines.

Type I is a preset created from a Swiss-made tape machine running at 30ips. The second preset, Type II is based on a Japanese tape machine running at 30ips. The same Japanese machine was used to create Type III, this time running at 15ips. There is a Neutral preset, which is a completely flat response.

Texture slider:  When you apply saturation, you are adding harmonics that warm or thicken the original tone. There are even and odd harmonics, and some analog gear will add more evens than odd or vice versa. In simple terms, even harmonics can feel like adding warmth, support, and stability, much like playing octaves on a keyboard. Odd harmonics can be a bit brighter and grittier. Being able to control that texture with a simple slider is a nice touch.

You also get a pair of high and low-pass filters that are pre-saturation, which means they are shaping the incoming signal. There is a 4X oversample button to help avoid aliasing, although it may introduce slight latency issues. Lastly, there is a dry/wet mix control to blend the clean and saturated signals.

Big Apple Compressor

The Big Apple plugin is a feed-forward dynamic range compressor based on the ideal VCA mathematical model. This audio processor allows you to use the parallel compression mixing technique (also known as New York compression) in your everyday work. The parallel compression works inline without any additional routing inside your DAW.

The "Big Apple" plugin also available as a simple unit!

HarmonicBoost

Harmonic enhancer. 

  • Polyphonic pitch tracking to boost the signal with harmonically matching content.
  • Real-time synthesis of octave and interval shifts.
  • Separate interval controls for left and right channel to enhance the stereo field.
  • Smoothing control regulates the compromise of tracking speed and accuracy.
  • Dropdown menu to compensate tracking latency and report it to the host.
  • Visualizations to illustrate the boost signal.
  • Supported sample rates: 44.1, 48, 88.2, 96, 176.4 and 192 kHz.



Chorus GAS

Chorus GAS consists of four independent modules of delay lines, which are tuned to the required notes from the full MIDI range (from C0 to G10), which allows you to get quite interesting combined effects - chorus, flanger, phaser, vibrato, etc., within one plug-in. Thanks to the tuning of the delay lines to the key, quite interesting types of tonal choruses and flangers are realized, imitating interval, chord, pentatonic and other sound combinations that cannot be realized through other effects. Another distinctive feature of this effect is the presence of an adjustable high-pass filter in the feedback loop, which gives a peculiar flavor to the sound, reminiscent of flight.

HY-ESG Euclidean Sequencer Gate

HY-ESG is a gate sequencer (aka a trance gate effect) with a twist. It uses a Euclidean sequencer instead of the standard step sequencer seen in most other trance gate plugins. 

HY-ESG is a gate sequencer. Its sequencer module controls the gate effect, which uses an ADSR envelope to modulate the volume. It can add rhythm and movement to static sounds.

To make things more interesting, HY-ESG substitutes the standard grid-based step sequencer with a Euclidean sequencer, unleashing the age-old rhythm-generating powers of ancient Greek mathematical algorithms in the comfort of your DAW.

Flux Mini

Flux Mini is an audio effect that adds life, character and dynamism to your tracks. The customisable graph creates a shape which affects either the amplitude, low-pass filter or high-pass filter. You can emphasise the frequency modulation with the resonance knob too!

Pre-loaded with 20 presets to get you going, it won't be long before you've built a plethora of shapes to accentuate your fantastic music. From simple side-chains to manic modulations, sculpt some life into your sounds
