D16 Group Devastor 2 v2.00 [k]
Devastor 2 is the second generation of D16’s first FX Plugin from the SilverLine Collection series. Devastor is a deceptively simple yet remarkable Multiband Distortion Unit. It is an enhanced version of the distortion unit you can find in Phoscyon, but with full control over multiband processing. This elevates its sonic mangling capabilities to an entirely new level!

Structure

The plug-in consists of four essential blocks:
• Dynamics-flattener module (one-knob controlled input signal compressor)
• Diode-clipper distortion
• Three multi-mode filter sections
• Optionally activated signal limiter

The plug-in offers nine different connection topologies between its filters and diode-clipper. Filters can process the signal before or after it gets fed into the diode-clipper, but some of the configurations even allow the filters to work alongside the clipper, which greatly increases the possible sonic palette.

Devastor’s filters are not simply the peaking EQ type which are commonly used in classic multiband distortion units: rather, they are like those found in analog synthesizers (low pass, high pass, band pass and band reject) with adjustable resonance and cutoff parameters. As a result, Devastor has a completely unique sound. Just check out the factory content and hear for yourself!

Versatile and advanced
Devastor can be used to distort and enhance a wide range of sounds, from full-on acid synth sounds to guitar fuzz or an analog amp with speaker combo. It can even be used with drums to make them sound dirtier and more dynamic! Devastor isn't just good at creating distorted, monster sounds: it can also be used subtly to improve the timbre and character of gentler sounds. For example, reducing the preamp gain, increasing the threshold, and selecting a soft-knee for the dynamics will bring out more warmth and detail in a sound without introducing distortion.

When designing Devastor, we applied special antialiasing techniques to the output signal to make sure it was devoid of aliasing (one of the reasons why digital distortion units can sound so cold and un-musical). As a result, Devastor has a warm, musical, and very high quality sound.

We would like to invite you to listen the audio examples to whet your appetite and to check out the demo version for yourself if you need any more convincing. Devastor uses algorithms of such high quality that you'd be forgiven in a blind test for wondering if the sound has somehow been sent from the computer to an external analog distortion unit and back into the computer again!

Soft / VST Instruments 17-10-2015
There was something about older drum machines and synths that made them sound punchier and more pleasing than today’s clinically perfect sounds.

"That Thing” is a multi effects processor that was designed to get you "That Thing” missing from digitally perfect tracks today. It features a beautiful wide and deep chorus section great to thicken anything from synths, vocals, bass, pads drums and other sounds. The soundscape generator features 50 samples of old vinyl players, tape machines, old radio, tube gear, atmospheres, ambiences etc. These ad to your sound with an envelop follower, so the sounds add in only when signal is present and move, and pan with the level of the signal. Easily change the pitch of the soundscape to make it work with any audio you pass through it. The plugin features a bit crusher and distortion that emulates the sound of vintage drum machines giving you a choice of 8/12/16 and 24 bit audio. There is also an analog Low Cut and High Cut filter section designed to shape your sounds further. A wet and dry fader is included to blend in the effects with your original audio.

Features:

Multi Effects Plugin- Customize your tracks to sound different.
Bit Crusher – Emulate Vintage Drum Machines.
Analog Modelled Chorus – For wide, thick & rich sounds.
Soundscape Generator: Vinyl, Tape, Tube & Nature – 50 included.
Analog Modelled Filters – Low Cut and High Cut Filters.
Great on Drums, Synths, Vocals, Bass, Pads and other sounds.
Blue Cat Dynamics 4 x86 x64 Incl Patched R2R-Based Blue Cat Dynamics 4 x86 x64 Incl Patched R2R-Based
Soft / VST Instruments 11-10-2015
Blue Cat's Dynamics is a full featured dynamics processor: it can be used as a compressor, limiter, gate, expander, waveshaper or all at once! The dynamics response of the plug-in can be tweaked with a unique two-thresholds system, and provides detailed visual feedback about its behavior.

The plug-in includes several filters to control the frequencies affected by the compression. Its continuous VCA/Opto and Peak/RMS controls let you smoothly and precisely choose the behavior of the envelope detection like you have never been able to.

The plug-in also provides advanced stereo features, with mid/side processing capability, multiple stereo linking options and the ability to choose the channels affected by the processor.

An additional brick wall limiter and clipper protects the output for complete control over the dynamics response.

Three different modes are available for external side chaining, using either the external side chain input, MIDI control or automation lanes.

The configurable visual feedback shows every detail of what is going on inside the plug-in. You can also record this information as automation curves, to monitor the modifications applied to the signal on top of the audio representation of your favorite host application.

All these features can be controlled from a fully configurable and "skinnable" user interface, or from any external controller.

The package includes a mono and a stereo version for optimal CPU usage.

Main Features:

- Full featured dynamics processor: compressor, gate, limiter, expander, waveshaper with a unique two thresholds system.
- Total control over the processor: continuous peak/RMS and Opto/VCA modes selection, peak envelope shape control, depth control to limit the gain range.
- Total control over the signal: dry/wet control for parallel compression, input and side chain filters.
- Stereo or mid-side processing with multiple channels linking options.
- Post brickwall limiter or clipper.
- Optimal monitoring: dynamics response, envelopes and gain reduction real time display with zooming capability. The main compression information can be recorded as automation curves.

Synthblitz Audio DNX 03 Multiband Compressor v2.0 Hy2ro Synthblitz Audio DNX 03 Multiband Compressor v2.0 Hy2ro
Soft / VST Instruments 13-09-2015
DNX-03 is a three-band stereo Compressor (win vst plugin) inspired by the analog models,
with some added features such as noise reduction and wide stereo control for
each individual freq-band.
The DNX-03 is able to split the incoming signal into three frequency-bands using a
6dB per octave crossover.

First-order filters are considered by many audiophiles to be ideal for crossovers.

Each band is passed through a compressor and then through a stereo processor
where compression,gain and stereo image can be altered and improved.
The outputs of the compressors and processors are then re-combined and
fed to the master output.
