haa5Haa5 uses stereo delays to create what is known as the “precedence effect”, also known as the “Haas effect” after Helmut Haas who’s 1949 Ph.D. thesis first described this psycho-acoustic phenomenon.

The Haas effect creates a sense of direction by using the same system our own ears use to locate sounds in the natural world. By creating a slight delay between the left and right signals the listener perceives a sense of direction depending on which ear hears the signal first. So, if the right signal is delayed, then the left ear will pick up the sound first, causing the sound to seem to come from the left; and vice versa.

Using the Haas effect, one can create a much more attuned and surgically precise stereo image. And, because the concept relies on psycho-acoustics the Haas effect lends itself to a much more natural panning effect than standard rotary potentiometer panning, which merely adjusts the volumes of the left and right signals separately to create an artificial and less real sense of direction.

evouynEvouyn is an attempt to make decisions about the low end in both mix and home mastering situations easier. It measure the correlation between frequencies in the spectrum and warn you if the amount of low end exceed what’s known to sound good. This is not a exact knowledge and the situations where Evouyn will give you a warning  even though the amount of low end is perfectly fine are many. Even so, in most music produced today the correlation between parts of the spectrum can be predicted and with the help of little math you can calculate the approximate percentage that most probably sound good.

Evouyn are developed in collaboration between Noisebud and Saintpid Mastering. The idea sprung from the fact that many mixes sent for mastering either lack or have a crazy amount of low end, in most cases because of poor monitoring and/or the lack of proper acoustic treatment (egg boxes will not do). When you try to master something where you have to cut or lower the low end by sometimes up to 7-9dB (the energy doubles every 3dB) you will change the whole feeling of the track and the mastering engineer pretty much have to guess what you’re after. With a balanced mix you’re in for less of a surprise when the track return from the mastering house.

freegThe Sonalksis FreeG is everything you need in a master fader. A simple, but absolutely indispensable plug-in, the FreeG extends the functionality of a typical audio host by providing a large-format style fader, along with ultra accurate metering.

FreeG helps to maximise workflow with extended, customizable metering, and multiple control features and settings.

When working with digital audio, a lack of fine metering and extended signal flow control in the host is a common issue. FreeG helps to improve workflow in the host by providing these features in the insert chain. By delivering enhanced control of amplitude, phase and pan (stereo version) in the insert chain as well as fine metering, with user configurable industry standard ballistic options, the freeG is the perfect master control.

Specifications

  • Long-throw fader
  • Ultra accurate metering
  • Multiple metering ballistic types
  • Peak and RMS readouts
  • Pre/Post metering options
  • Selectable Pan-Law
  • ‘Fine’ mode for sensitive calibration of the master fader
  • Mono-compatible for use in tracking situations

LFOXLFOX it´s a plugin for woobling and sweep your sounds.

This plugin is gifted of 2 filters and 2 LFO´s. Each LFO has a fully range of targets into the filters, making you be able of woobling cutoff, resonance or both on both filters.
The speed of each LFO goes from 16b into 1/16, has a free speed knob, and each LFO also counts with waveform (sin/ramp/tri/saw) and mode of playing, random and transport run, for sync.
