A set of Edit Control Panels allows you to tweak various aspects of the displays, such as digital or channel options, ballistic response and colour choices, so you can customise things to your preference and intended use. This, in turn, allows you to get the best from your mix and your tracks. Great care has been taken to ensure accuracy in the preparation of this article but neither Sound On Sound Limited nor the publishers can be held responsible for its contents. More intuitive than your usual logarithmic curve frequency display, this frequency analyser shows you the intensity of frequencies before and after the filtering with colours.

The Vectorscope display illustrates the stereo width and phase characteristics of your mixes, and also offers some handy extras. Pure continuous tones appear as straight lines, which makes it easy to spot unwanted background whistles and hums, while drum hits produce wider bands of information. Audio metering and analysis plugins are not glamorous, but can contribute greatly to the quality of your mixes, and help pick up on problems such as subsonic rumblings and phase issues. A Link button ensures that the frequency ranges of all visible spectral displays remain perfectly aligned with each other. All four offer 64bit internal processing and support sample rates up to 192kHz. Son mode de fonctionnement dÃ©tonne en comparaison de ce que l'on trouve partout ailleurs sur le marchÃ©. You can also use the A Store and B Store buttons to capture displays for later comparison.
By highlighting the appropriate icons in the righthand View Selector column, you can enable these in any combination to be viewed in the main display area. Not responsible for typographical or illustrative errors. GearMatch technology allows you to transfer impulse responses of high-end analog audio gear to your digital audio, while allowing you to adjust frequency response freely. In both, a large graphical display offers the same versatile clickanddrag zooming and scrolling functions as Visualizer. When it is enabled, the processed sound gets an additional vintage feel.
The resolution can be scaled to suit any task. I've long enjoyed Spectrograms, which display a scrolling sonic fingerprint of your frequency spectrum over time, with the level of each frequency indicated by a spread of colours typically 'hotter' levels are red, while quieter ones shade down to blue. Filters are simply created by designing a spline curve which can be made to adopt any imaginable shape. The final display option is a Correlation meter with an optional scrolling History, which can help you spot phase problems. Update Unrecognized Zip Code Emailed within 24 Hours This product may only be downloaded from the manufacturer's website. Because the scrolling display may well encompass a minute or more of your track, you can examine how compression is affecting the spectrum of your drum hits over time, for example, and spot masking problems when two or more instruments are fighting for the same part of the spectrum.

By rightclicking anywhere on a spectrum display you can also generate a sine test-tone at any frequency and level, which I found really useful in confirming what notes or harmonics caused particular spikes in my mixes. You'll receive an email with the license code to complete your order. You can also zoom in to as low as ±3 dB.
The 10 supplied presets give a good overview of possible arrangements. I was really impressed with the clickanddrag scrolling and zooming functions offered by the four spectral displays, since this makes homing in on problem areas really easy. A direct-draw interface and detailed spectrum analysis make it easy to quickly identify and specifically fine-tune audio. You can also display, save and load static spectrum plots for comparison and matching purposes. I found the thirdoctave setting made it easy to spot audible problem areas without getting lost in hundreds of individual peaks and troughs. Changing parameters, either by adjusting the knobs, the graph or by parameter automation is always done smoothly and creates no audio artifacts.
Linear phase equalizers always require more power than other types of equalizers. Gains are represented logarithmically between -60 dB and +60 dB and linearly below -60 dB. Flexible nodes and a direct draw interface make specific corrections possible in a way that would be very time consuming using a traditional parametric interface. This technology also greatly helps in music disc mastering, since using it allows you to easily lessen any dramatic differences in the area of frequency balance between various tracks. Just turn it on and you will get a great deal of presence effect. You can use the saturator to create professional sounding vocal, guitar and bass tracks. Also has the advantage of not incurring aliasing artifacts.
I found this particularly handy for ironing out the inevitable kinks in a handdrawn response. By sampling the vocal and applying the inverted the curve to the backing, specific space can be gently created without unnecessarily altering the original tonality of the underlying audio. You can create or disable bands by double clicking on the visualisation area of the interface and adjust them either in that area or using the knobs or even the automatable parameter sliders in the host's interface. Abonne toi Ã ma chaÃ®ne Youtube: 2. If you need to dial up something 'tighter' to cure a hum or roll off the low end more sharply, you may need to increase the resolution. Or the same technique can be applied to individual tracks to unify different takes, microphone positions, and more. There's also a global switch between Compact and Large sizes for the entire plugin.
There's also a Stereo Spectrogram that displays how your frequency spectrum is spread side to side in the stereo image over time, although I didn't find as many uses for this. Stereoizer enhances the width of both mono and stereo inputs, Stereoplacer is a parametric equaliser whose bands can be individually placed in the stereo field, and Monofilter can highlight and correct a wide range of bassend and phase problems to give your mixes more definition and solidity.

This is especially useful for restoration and harmonization work.
The views expressed are those of the contributors and not necessarily those of the publishers. Given the uniquely immense gain range there's also a built-in limiter whose knob lights up when over the adjustable threshold. You can modify the curve as a whole using the transpose function to shift the curve up and down by up to 10 octaves, affect the overall gain to shift all gain settings up or down evenly or even change the gain scale to apply a ratio to all gains, thus enabling you to either flatten, exaggerate or reverse the shape of a curve. NuGen's Standard models offer three of these 'quality' settings, while the Master Editions offer nine, enabling much tighter lowend tweaks if you need them, but at the expense of more sluggish audio feedback.
