SKnote XTrim Mixing Tools v1.0 AU VST MAC OSX
XTrim is a set of tools for mixing. It provides fine control on parameters related to phase, level, time, pitch, stereo image and a stereo VU meter with optional offset.

Main features:

• LeftRight channels swap.
• independent Left and Right channels phase controls.
• fine (+/-1dB) output level control with optional coarse (+/-10dB) mode (e.g. for gain staging).
• independent control on stereo panning and width (for mid/side balancing, stereo image size management, stage placement of instruments with position and size control, etc.).
• extra-smooth hi-pass and lo-pass filters for bracketing and mix balance.
• forward and backward delay control (for track alignment and control on groove) with optional left-only delay for stereo alignment and creative uses (e.g. controlling the sound of multi-tracked guitars, microphone alignment, etc.).
• fine pitch control for automated pitch correction and creative uses (e.g. psycho-acoustics on bassdrums, easy experimentation on dynamic tuning, doubling, vibrato, etc.).
• optional "chorus" mode for the pitch control (applies the same amount of pitch shifting, as set by the knob, to both Left and Right channels but with opposite sign).
Simple and light on CPU, it can be used as a general purpose gain staging tool, as a VU metering suite or for more complex purposes.

Soft / VST Instruments 14-11-2015
PHA-979 is a professional audio AU and VST plugin which allows you to apply an arbitrary phase shift to sound material. What is meant by the phase shift here is simultaneous shifting of all frequencies across the active frequency range of the signal by the given value in degrees. This is achieved by linear-phase design.

PHA-979 is useful during mixing sessions, especially when working with the sound material recorded through an array of microphones. In many cases this allows you to solve various phasing problems arising from the microphone placement chosen during the tracking session. In other cases this process may help you to align drums and other instruments to each other bringing punch and time coherence not attainable by the ordinary time-aligning alone.

Beside the phase shifting, PHA-979 features positive and negative time delaying that eliminates the need to move in-track events in the sequencer when doing time alignment over any set of recorded tracks. PHA-979 also provides mid/side channel balance and panning controls that permit you to record stereo microphone pairs into a single stereo track without resorting to dual mono recording (on separate tracks) which usually becomes time-consuming in a further editing.

PHA-979 features multi-band analog-style correlation meter that greatly simplifies phase- and time-aligning process. Moreover, you can use functionality PHA-979 provides to setup headphone monitoring so that it closer resembles sound stage produced by stereo speaker monitoring.

PHA-979 features:

Arbitrary signal phase control
Linear-phase design
Multi-band correlation meter
Positive/negative time delaying
Delay time calculator
Mid/side channel balance control
Stereo output panning
Stereo and mono processing
64-bit floating point processing
Preset manager

PHA-979 version 2.5 includes the following changes:

Implemented color scheme editor with load and save functions.
Added "Brown" and "White" color schemes.
Redesigned the infrastructure controls.
Added 90%, 110% and 150% visual scales.
TDR VOS SlickEQ GE v1.2.0 x86 x64 TDR VOS SlickEQ GE v1.2.0 x86 x64
Soft / VST Instruments 20-10-2015
TDR VOS SlickEQ – Gentleman’s Edition takes SlickEQ‘s concept to new heights and adds an exotic "Tilt”-filter flanked by flexible low-pass and high-pass filters. Five distinct EQ models provide a rich set of predefined EQ curves and behaviours for the three main semi parametric filter bands.

SlickEQ GE offers a switchable EQ non-linearity and seven different output stages. These options offer subtle and interesting textures, from the typical "mojo” often associated with high quality analogue audio gear, up to more obvious saturation.

An elaborate auto gain option automatically compensates for changes of perceived-loudness during EQ (within reasonable limits) and a gain-trim feature helps controlling peak overloads with ease. The 64bit multi-rate processing scheme (a.k.a. "internal re-sampling”) practically eliminates typical problems of digital EQ implementations such as frequency-warping, quantization distortion and aliasing.

Beside the primary controls, the plug-in comes with an array of additional helpers: Advanced preset management, a frequency magnitude plot, undo/redo, quick A/B comparison, copy & paste, an online help, editable labels, mouse-wheel support and much more. Finally, SlickEQ GE allows to exclusively process the stereo sum or stereo difference without external sum/difference encoding (see "M/S” microphony).

Key specs and features

Modern user interface with outstanding usability and ergonomics
Carefully designed 64bit "delta” multi-rate structure
Three semi-parametric filter bands, each with two shape options
Five distinct EQ models: American, British, German, Soviet and Japanese
Low band offers an optional phase-lag able to delay low frequencies relative to higher frequencies
High pass filter with optional "Bump” mode
Low pass filter with two different slopes (6dB/Oct and 12dB/Oct)
Parametric Tilt filter with optional "V” mode.
Seven output stages: Linear, Silky, Mellow, Deep, Excited, Toasted and Funky
Highly effective loudness compensated auto gain control
Expandable frequency magnitude response display including a realtime analyzer
Stereo, mono, left, right and sum/difference (mid/side) processing options
Tool-bar with undo/redo, A/B, advanced preset management and more

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.

New parameters for compression
New saturation system
New shortcuts
