LiquidSonics Reverberate 1.916
LiquidSonics' Reverberate is a highly efficient hybrid convolution reverb audio processor offering true zero-latency operation for two separate, stereo impulse responses for Mac and PC supporting VST, Audio Units, AAX and RTAS.

Creative Convolution

Reverberate provides a rich and dynamic reverb from impulse responses by modulating an amalgamation of two, separately controllable true stereo IRs using an LFO. Further modulation is possible using the post-processing effects; an all-pass interpolator chorus and delay unit provide a fuller sound and an over-sampled analogue prototype paragraphic equaliser is provided with dual LFOs. These features make for a livelier, more creative sound than typically associated with some convolution reverbs.

In addition to loading impulse responses from audio files Reverberate is able to generate supplementary independent early reflections and tails for additional control over a room’s sonic characteristics.

Audio Damage EOS v1.1.1 Windows Audio Damage EOS v1.1.1 Windows
Soft / Audio Soft 5-10-2015
Eos consists of three high-quality custom-designed reverb algorithms, made with the modern production environment in mind. Two different plate simulators and our own Superhall algorithm give you a broad palette of reverb, and the easy-to-understand interface makes adjusting the algorithms to suit your track incredibly simple.

Want a traditional dark plate reverb? Eos can do that. How about a short, dense room sound for your drum buss? Not a problem. But where Eos really comes in to its own is when you drop Superhall on your piano or synthesizer tracks. The incredibly long modulated hall sounds of Eno-style ambience are where Eos thrives, something that is made of unobtanium with convolution 'verbs. Quite simply, an impulse response can not do what Eos does.

Features:

Algorithms: Three custom-designed algorithms: Plate 1 (mono in, stereo out), Plate 2 (true stereo), and Superhall (true stereo) built with modern production in mind. 
Controls: All standard reverb controls, including modulation rate and depth, attack, diffusion, and full control over the EQ and multipliers of the reverb tail. 
Infinite: An on-off control for "freeze" effects. 
User Interface: Unique visual controls designed for quick and easy programming. 
Optimized: Low CPU usage compared to other algorithmic reverb plug-ins, and far lower than the average convolution 'verb.
MIDI Learn: Full MIDI learn for hardware control of most parameters (VST only).

Discord3 is a comprehensive refresh of our popular Discord series of multi-effects. From subtle ADT effects to completely chaotic granular destruction, and everything in between, Discord3 is a capable and broad-reaching multi-effect plug-in.

The pitch-shifter consists of three separate algorithms: a "vintage" mode (the original Discord algorithm, modeled on the Eventide H910 and H949), a "clean" mode for more modern shifting sounds, and a "granular" mode for experimental effects. Each mode has its strengths, depending on the input material, and Discord3 has a broad palette of capabilities as a result. The P1 and P2 algorithms have full control over the buffer (window) size of the shift effect, for fine tuning the shift to the input signal, or for stranger sound effects. At the extremes of the six-octave shift range, some truly strange aliasing and artifacts can be had with this control. 
Now, to be clear, if you're looking for a nice, clean diatonic pitch shifter for fine surgery and re-pitching the full program, you need to look elsewhere. Discord3 is a tool for sound design, barberpole shifting delays, and special effects; think Eno, Visconti, Bowie, or Dirty Mind-era Prince and you'll be on the right track.

Features

- Pitch Shifting: Discord3 contains a pair of shifters with three separate algorithms (Vintage, Clean, and Granular) for different styles of pitch shifting. 
- Buffer Size Control: The P1 (Vintage) and P2 (Clean) algorithms have a Buffer Size control, from 32 to 2048 samples, for fine-tuning the pitch shifting effect. 
- Delay: Tempo-synced or free-running delays with feedback, cross-feedback, and a sophisticated bandpass filter.
- Modulation: Discord3 has a pair of LFOs that can modulate delay time, pitch shift amount, and filter center frequency. 
- True Stereo Operation: Discord3 has a true stereo signal path, with entirely independent control over each side. 
- All New GUI: Discord3 has a completely re-designed GUI, with animated displays and a unique "grab-the-digit" value adjustment method. 
- MIDI Note Control: Six octaves of pitch-shifting can be controlled with MIDI note input. 
- Full MIDI Learn: Discord3 features MIDI learn for every parameter, for full hardware control.

Add a robust sampler that can import EXS24 instruments and your creative potential is limitless.

Master sound morphing.
Manipulate audio in powerful new ways with the unique collection of tools Alchemy provides. Analyze and resynthesize samples using the various synth engines. Create entirely new sounds by combining distinct elements from up to four different sources. Add a thunderclap to your snare. Let a songbird introduce color and shape to a string pad. Morph seamlessly between sounds at a deep, elemental level — from, say, a breakbeat to a crashing wave and then a handclap — just by moving the puck around the Morph Pad. Or use discrete controls to dial in the perfect blend of each element. Open up an entirely new sonic frontier and experience sounds you’ve never heard before.

Virtually limitless sound shaping.
Great-sounding filters and flexible modulation are key measures of a great synth. And Alchemy delivers on both. Sounds never stop evolving when you can modulate almost any parameter in so many ways. Choose from over 100 modulation sources, including a variety of LFOs, AHDSR and MSEG envelopes, and step sequencers. Sculpt sounds using 38 different filters in a variety of colors, from modeled analog to special effects. Whether you like classic synth tones overflowing with vintage character or more futuristic, spectral timbres, Alchemy filters ensure that you have plenty to love.

Built-in arpeggiation and effects.
Take sounds to another level with integrated arpeggiation and effects. Arpeggiate each of four sound sources independently, generating complex, multitimbral compositions from a single chord. Sweeten or transform your sounds by applying up to 16 effects — including convolution and algorithmic reverbs, modulation effects, stereo delay, compressors, EQ, and a range of distortions — to each sound source or the whole preset at once. There are so many ways to go. Unleash modulation on any of the effect or arpeggiator parameters in Alchemy and hear the difference.

Logic Remote.

Overtone AF2-10M Stereo Graphical EQ V2.4.3 Overtone AF2-10M Stereo Graphical EQ V2.4.3
Soft / Audio Soft 9-09-2015
A versatile graphical EQ with a wide range of zero latency analogue modelled filters and realtime FFT display.

Many digital EQs, including those of some popular Digital Audio Workstations can have an artificially cramped filter response, especially at high frequency settings. This is often cited as a reason for the 'digital' sound of some equalizers.

Conventional solutions to this problem can be both CPU intensive and add extra latency or other artefacts.

By contrast, the AF2-10 uses innovative filter algorithms to accurately model the natural response of analogue designs, even at close to the limit imposed by the sample rate, without requiring CPU intensive or latency inducing techniques.

Up to ten bands are provided covering a comprehensive range of filter types across the full 20Hz to 20kHz audio range together with a sample synchronous realtime FFT display featuring optional pre / post process monitoring and selectable slope compensation.

In addition, the package now includes the AF210M plug-in which provides all the features of the original, together with built-in professional metering options for stereo PPM (IEC I & II) VU and dBFS monitoring pre / post the EQ.

System Requirements - Windows PCs:

32Bit Systems: A PC Running Windows XP / 7 / 8 and a VST compatible host application.
64Bit Systems: A PC Running Windows 7 / 8 (64Bit) and a VST compatible host application.
