Announcement: ATKColoredCompressor 1.0.0 and ATKColoredExpander 1.0.0

I’m happy to announce the release of a colored compressor plugin as well as a colored expander plugin based on the Audio Toolkit. They are available on Windows and OS X (min. 10.8) in different formats. They are effectively replacing the ATKCompressor and ATKExpander plugins by adding several new parameters: RMS filter (set it to 0 to get peak detection from the old plugins), color (gain change around the threshold, positive color adding gain and negative color removing gain), quality (affecting the coloring on a smaller or bigger area around the threshold). The expander also has a maximum reduction parameter, allowing the user to specify the maximum amount of gain reduction below the threshold.

Announcement: ATKStereoCompressor 1.0.0

I’m happy to announce the release of a stereo compressor based on the Audio Toolkit. It is available on Windows and OS X (min. 10.8) in different formats. This stereo compressor can work on two channels, left/right or middle/side, possibly in linked mode (only one set of parameters), and can be set up to mix the input signal with the compressed signal (serial/parallel compression).

Announcement: ATKLimiter 1.0.0, ATKCompressor 1.1.0, ATKExpander 1.1.0

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: ATKCompressor and ATKExpander Implementation

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).
