MS EQ COMP – FREE Midside Compressor

MS EQ COMP – FREE Midside Compressor Internet Co. recently released a FREE mid-side equalizer and compressor plugin called simply MS EQ COMP. The plugin is available both for Windows and Mac OS platforms. It is a straightforward plugin in design and function which we’re quite grateful for, it’s part of what makes this such a quality plugin. The effect features a 3-band equalizer specifically for adjusting the center or the sides. If you aren’t interested in getting that type of processing you can link the modules in order to work in stereo by pressing a clearly labeled and easy to see button at the bottom of the plugin’s GUI. A bonus feature is a preset manager where you can save and recall your favorite presets. Internet Co. features this description on their website – MS EQ COMP can encode standard STEREO (left/right) signal to MS (middle and side) and add EQ …

ElliptiQ – Elliptic Equalizer by HoRNet

ElliptiQ – Elliptic Equalizer by HoRNet This week we have a very special type of equalizer, an elliptic equalizer. This type of processing tool has its roots based in the history of vinyl cutting. Cutting vinyl made for stereo recordings will inherently produce a sound meant for two channels, left and right. If lower frequencies like bass or kick happen to be out of phase then this can cause cancellation problems and decrease the quality of the recording. An elliptic equalizer works on the stereo field of low frequencies to avoid phase issues. Allow the developer to elaborate, “A tool like this is needed because if the bass frequencies goes in anti-phase or the difference between left and right channel are too wide the needle may jump outside the groove in the final vinyl master, so an elliptic eq works on the difference of the two channels removing part of …

Neutron – Izotope’s All-In-One Auto-Mixing Plugin

Neutron – Izotope’s All-In-One Mixing Plugin   Izotope’s product “Neutron” is a plug-in that comes with a serious combination of tools for mixing, you can chain their Dynamic EQ, 2 Multi-band Compressors, Transient Shaper, and Exciter in any order. The Compressors can produce a clean modern sound or when in “vintage mode” will output signals like a CLA-2A tube compressor; the Exciter offers harmonic shaping with 3 XY selectors that each push the sound towards Retro/Warm/Tape/Tube; the Transient Shaper is an awesome addition to have even if you already have one, and is extremely responsive from subtle levels up to when the effect is increased. Each of these modules allows for multi-band processing and deliver sound that stands up to any other high-end plugin on the market, the fact that you get all of them together at such a low price should be enough to pique your interest.

You’re Doing Too Much: Common Mix Mistakes

You’re Doing Too Much: Common Mix Mistakes We are currently in the middle of two weeks of advanced mixing techniques in our most advanced class here at Beat Lab, and it’s amazing how the more we learn about the process the more we keep coming back to the basics. The simplicity of the concepts of proper EQ, compression, and balance can make these tasks appear to be easy and we often feel we have grasped their importance before we really have. We have all been there and every part of this process of creating records from songwriting, to production, to mixing, and mastering is all it’s own endless rabbit hole so don’t be discouraged. If you feel your mixes still aren’t where you want them to be it’s possible all that is missing is the strongest possible foundation. From there there is often little work left to do. More advanced concepts will definitely …

Waves BSS DPR-402 – All In One Plugin

Waves BSS DPR-402 – All In One Plugin Have you ever been finishing up a track, adding its final touches, and find yourself with a complex of plugins for limiting, compressing and de-essing? Waves just released the BSS DPR-402 which combines all three of those functions in one plugin. Long favored by studio, live and broadcast engineers, the BSS® DPR-402 dynamics processor is known for its punch, versatility, and the explosive sound it delivered on countless rock, dance and hip-hop hits since the 80s. BSS DPR-402 can be used as a straightforward compressor, limiter or de-esser. But it really shows its colors when these processes are combined, and when it is used to selectively process individual parts of the audio band, leaving the rest of the spectrum untouched. The endless possibilities range from low-frequency expansion and narrow-band compression to general dynamic equalization to create surprising enhancement effects. Waves has also added …

PTEq-X Amp Equalizer (Free Download)

PTEq-X Amp Equalizer (Free Download)   Ignite Amps, an engineering company primarily revolved around creating plugins that transform hardware, typically made for on-stage performances, into digital form. Creating everything from classic tube distortion, to mock stomp overdrive pedals, all in digital form. Their recent release includes a PTEq Amp Equalizer which adds power and punch to vocals, guitars, drums, or anything else you put it on. The PTEq-X is equipped with mid range equalizer, program equalizer, and tube gain controls allowing you to hone in onto specific frequencies and either reduce or boost frequencies. For example, you are able to dial into a certain mid range frequency and reduce its frequencies, and then boost certain low end frequencies. The result you can achieve with the plugin is pretty satisfying. It not only boosts your lows and shaves off a bit of your unnecessary high’s, but it also adds a nice warm …

Tokyo Dawn Labs TDR Nova – Free Multi-Function Equalizer

Tokyo Dawn Labs TDR Nova – Free Multi-Function Equalizer   Tokyo Dawn Labs has released a free parallel dynamic equalizer called the TDR Nova. Supposedly loosely based of the Nova-67P, (the bedroomproducersblog.com No. 1 freeware plugin pick,) the TDR packs as much of a punch with a cleaner interface. The Nova is capable of extremely precise refining and makes for powerful dynamic processing and is found with  preset manager, undo/redo, A/B, detailed documentation, copy & paste, which wasn’t found in previous TDR equalizers. The TDR is in the form of a user friendly drag and drop view which runs alongside knob controls which gives the user clean access to a wide range of parameters allowing for maximum processing control. The TDR Nova covers a range of capabilities from parametric equalization, dynamic equalization, frequency selective compression, to multi-band compression and wide band compression. A PDF manual is available for download for those who aren’t all that …
