I’m happy to announce the release of a mono fixed delay line based on the Audio Toolkit. It is available on Windows and OS X (min. 10.8) in different formats. The three knobs adjust the direct signal (blend), the delayed signal (feedforward) as well as the feedback signal from the delay line injected in the input. The delay can be set from 0 ms to 1 s by steps of 0.1 ms.
I’m happy to announce the release of one new limiter plugin based on the Audio Toolkit. It is available on Windows and OS X (min. 10.8) in different formats. I also updated the compressor and the expander with improved UI controls. The compressor also has now a dry/wet knob, allowing to use it for parallel compression.
Audio Toolkit is now almost ready for its first stable release. Its content will now move toward more advanced DSP algorithms (zero delay filters, amplifiers).
I’d like to talk a little bit about the way a compressor and an expander can be written with the Audio Toolkit. Even if both effects use far less filters than the SD1 emulation, they still implement more than just one filter in the pipeline, contrary to a fixed delay line (another audio plugin that I released with the compressor and the expander).
I’m happy to announce the release of two new audio plugins based on the Audio Toolkit. It is available on Windows and OS X (min. 10.8) in different formats.
A lot has happened in two weeks for Audio ToolKit. This release mainly adds tools for Compressor and Delays design. There will be additional plugins release soon.
I’ve explained in earlier posts how to simulate a simple overdrive circuit. I’ve also explained how I implemented this in QtVST (and yes, I should have added labels on those images!), which was more or less the predecessor of Audio TK.
The main problem with simulating non linear circuits is that it costs a lot. Let’s see if I can improve the timings a little bit.
How to explain the different kind of audio effects and how to understand what their use is? Although I learnt a lot by practice, there is sometimes the need for some theory and for experiments. I tried to find a book that matches these two points: good theory and proper practice. I’ve chosen this book, with tracks on a CD for experimentation. Was it really what I was looking for?
I think I’ve said it already, I have a rock band. Currently, we are recording our first album, and while we used Traktion in the past, I’m considering moving to Sonar (it is continuously updated and has a great reputation, also I’ve played a few time in the past with its ancestor Cakewalk).
So let’s talk about the book’s comprehensive guide.
I’m pleased to announce the 1.0 version of QtSimpleEQ, a plugin with one low-pass, two peak and one high pass second-order filters. Nothing fancy in the algorithms, it’s mainly another show case for Qt VST plugins.
The plugin can be download on the Sourceforge project page.
The plugin was tested with Tracktion 3 (Windows XP).
