Modeled to a T The characteristic sound of the original hardware unit is a result of both its tube design and the famous T4 circuitry – and the CA-2A T-Type Leveling Amplifier meticulously models both. The T4 circuit is made up of an electroluminescent panel partnered with and an optical photocell that, together, determine the the attack and release time – all based on...
Free Nomad Bus Driver Vintage Optical Compressor – $149

Free Nomad Bus Driver Vintage Optical Compressor – $149

Vintage Optical Compressor with Tube Saturation Bus Driver is an optical compressor that provides a wide range of compression effects, reminiscent of the best vintage compressors made in the ‘60s. Compression is one of those studio processes that is all too often taken for granted and not usually used to its full potential. Today’s producers think nothing of inserting compressors on every single channel of their DAW when mixing, but old school engineers had to learn to make the most of only a few units of compression and this made them learn them inside out to use them to their best advantage. Bus Driver is modelled on the classics from the ‘golden age’ of tube compressors. Also included in Bus Driver is a Tube-Driver Saturation feature. It allows you to add the sound of a vintage tube amplifier giving you the differing electronic characteristics of triode, tetrode, and pentode vacuum tubes. So you can add the vintage warmth of the those models of the classic tubes (e.g. ECC83, 12AX7, etc..) to your tracks or on your mix bus. Nomad Factory designed an Output Stage Soft-Clipping to eliminate digital clipping at any output level and produce a smoother distortion characteristic. This feature is in addition to the Tube-Driver Saturation Modeling included in Bus-Driver. DontCrack and Bernie have taken the decision to offer Bus Driver free for a limited time. It was his way of expressing his gratitude to the audio community for the help he received. Hopefully you will be using every day and that it will accomplish the goal of saying ‘Thank You’ for the heart-warming support you showed...

Variable Tube Compressor Plugin By Klanghelm FREE!

Variable Tube Compressor Plugin By Klanghelm FREE!

It’s a variable-mu design with lots of vibe. Capable of smooth leveling but also heavy pumping effects. With its two gain stages and interstage transformer simulation it offers a very deep and lively soundstage. The three-position timing switch not only controls the attack and release times of the unit, but also the slew rate of the transformers and the timing of the other parts of the circuitry, that are directly influencing the generated harmonics (saturation.) MJUC Jr. is a mix of Mk1 and Mk2 of its big brother MJUC. It’s combining very natural, dense compression characteristics of the early days of this type of compression with a more forward sounding approach and more harmonics creating of the variable-mu comps of the early 1960s.

Tokyo Dawn Labs Releases Kotelnikov Compressor Audio Plugin FREE

Tokyo Dawn Labs Releases Kotelnikov Compressor Audio Plugin FREE

  TDR Kotelnikov is a wideband dynamics processor combining high fidelity dynamic range control with deep musical flexibility. As a descendant of the venerable TDR Feedback Compressor product family, Kotelnikov has directly inherited several unique features such as a proven control scheme, individual release control for peak and RMS content, an intuitive user interface, and powerful, state of the art, high-precision algorithms. With a sonic signature best described as “stealthy”, Kotelnikov has the ability to manipulate the dynamic range by dramatic amounts, while carefully preserving the original tone, timbre and punch of a musical signal. As such, it is perfectly suited to stereo bus compression as well as other critical applications. The concept is “proudly digital” in the sense that it doesn’t try to emulate any previously existing device. This is the original! Key specs and features 64bit floating point precision for all relevant calculations Multi-rate processing structure for highest accuracy “Delta” oversampled signal path (bit transparent at 0dB gain reduction) Super fast, yet natural sounding compression “Crest factor” based control scheme offering independent release controls for peak and RMS events Flexible sidechain highpass filter Advanced stereo linking options optimized for the stereo bus Delta preview mode to preview the difference between compressed and original signal Latency compensated parallel bypass (i.e. processing not interrupted) Get It While It’s HOT Here At The...
