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 just released my SD1 simulation, and now it is time to explain why is inside this plugin. Not everything in the original pedal was simulated, and different schemes were used to tackle the different stages.
It’s time for a new release of the toolkit. Much has been done in terms of basic filters, but also to simplify usage (static and shared libraries are compiled, no need to reset the pipeline before calling process…).
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.
