There seemed to be an overwhelming consensus that even though many of them were advertised as 'analog modeled', they still didn't have the classic sound of analog compressors. We focused on recreating the unique nonlinearity of the curcursion path, which provides different compressors including transformers, tubes, amplifiers, phase distortion, harmonic distortion and timing. The advanced dynamics algorithm is claimed to be so transparent, you'll wonder if its on. A little push and things got so much more punchy, fat, and aggressive. It will make your tracks and mixes more smoother, punchier as well as more analog. Before Installing Software You Must Watch This Installation Guide Video.
I thought it was odd actually. The attack and autorelease work very uniquely and musically. Some of the top mastering engineers have found ways to combat this sonic degradation by using techniques other then Peak Limiting. It comes packed with seven default Dream Strips although you can remove them and make your own. Compressing a mix with each one doing a very little amount can sound amazing! This new process can make even the loudest masters sound more dynamic, open, and punchy, even though the master has much more limited dynamic range then the mix. So I decided to do something that the original unit cannot. The midrange thickens, the lows get tighter and rounder, and the top end opens up with a beautiful sparkle.
One of the clearest, punchiest sounding rock mixes I'd ever heard come out of my own speakers. Here was this compressor that nobody else seemed to really use, and it was on a setting at 1. Enhance allows you to transparently increase the level of the transients in a mix, increasing the punch and dynamics without altering other elements of the mix. But the real magic we found was in the output section! Engineers can use tape and select the speed to be used upon the material that they are recording as the base response can differ greatly between the two speeds. So Fabrice and I got to work. We had to precisely model it.
Some of the analog compressors had modulations, dynamic harmonic distortions, dynamic phase distortion, saturation, crosstalk, and more. There was only one way to find out. It does not interrupt the recording in the final mastering phase. One of the more popular techniques is the use of saturation in both the analog and digital domain. Be Safe In the rare case that a mix has poor frequency balance or small bursts of low frequency energy such as a quick floor tom hit , the Safety slider prevents unwanted distortions or crackles, that until now have been extremely hard to prevent or tame. With this application it is very easy to clone whole signal chain for comparison all you have to do is to press the right arrow and everything which is currently on path A will be copied to path B. But overall, this is a processor that has tons of analog mojo and vibe for days.
Howie Weinberg, the famous mastering engineer who has a studio on our campus let us in on a little secret. It has got Group option where different plug-in instances can be assigned to the same group so that the changing the settings for one instance carries the changes to all of the other group. For a snare drum transient, it will optimize the algorithm to preserve upper mid range punch. After several months of study and hundreds of listening tests, they made some fascinating discoveries. And what we found was surprising. These are subtle issues but the transformer stage keeps the bottom big and round and the midrange more open, while still retaining the classic sound of the hardware unit.
But you can try cranking it all the way for an interesting effect! This was puzzling because I usually associated a faster attack with a loss of transient punch, but if you've heard Chris's mixes you know that they are the exact opposite of that! This plugin emulates two different Studer reel-to-reel tape decks, swapping between them with a flick of switch. You can also modify the vibe, color and sound of your mix with just a single click and can easily undo and redo your changes. Both static saturation and clipping have a small window of gain maximizing before audible distortion. I hope that you enjoy it on your mixes! The hardware unit tends to start sucking out too much bottom as you start to compress more. It then optimizes a specialized set of saturation curves for that specific transient.
Several months later, we had algorithms that combined the exact compressor topologies, curves, timings, as well as the circuit's nonlinear dynamic artifacts. All of the compressors in this family are modeled with a wide variety of classic analog compressors, and each compressor has a variety of acoustical characteristics. It comes packed with seven default Dream Strips although you can remove them and make your own. Static saturation curves are not universal in their ability to sound good on all transients. Mix bus compressors in the sound industry. When they do use compression, they use only the most transparent compressors that will not alter the tone or balance of the mix. And just like in our Virtual Console Collection plug-in, these artifacts added a sonic imprint to the compression.
This would be compatible with both 32 bit and 64 bit windows. It is your own responsibility to add here to these terms. They started by researching saturation curves and their effect on various types of transient material. Much of the magic tone that has been missing from many plug-in compressors is these nonlinear additives. We took the classic British discrete transformer and added some of the characteristics to the signal path. .
What they found, was that in order to transparently add level to a mix, a dynamic and intelligent transient saturation system would have to be developed. This does something very amazing to the clarity of the midrange and bottom end. If you scan through the presets, you can get a great idea of what its capable of. We did a small mod to the circuit in our virtual model which I think you'll really enjoy. Smooth rich compression, fat warm compression, and even slightly aggressive compression.
Masters have become louder and louder, at the expense of the music becoming harsh and lacking punch and dynamics. We found that just pushing the makeup gain a few db did some insane things to the sound! Was this the magic sound that made the plug-in compressors sound different than the analog compressors? First we needed to examine the hardware compressors and the current crop of analog modeled plug-in compressors to see what was going on! With this application it is very easy to clone whole signal chain for comparison all you have to do is to press the right arrow and everything which is currently on path A will be copied to path B. It can also get slightly 'choked' in the mids. You can select from loads of modules including vintage modeled Eqs, enhancers, filters, compressors, preamps, mixing consoles and many more.

Whenever this application is launched the leftmost Dream Strip always loads first and then you can instantly start mixing with the modules you use mostly.
