New Fangled Audio – Invigorate
Newfangled Audio has released Invigorate, a bus compressor like no other. Invigorate can smoothly transition from compression to limiting to overdrive, making it quick and easy to mix in the right amount of character and ring out your mixes, buses, and tracks. HUGE.
The Invigorate user interface features a unique radar display and intelligent gain compensation engine that lets you hear and see exactly what you’re doing. Three-tone controls (Sensitivity, Input Drive, and Output Tone) give you unprecedented control over the tone of your compressed signal. Invigorate also includes over 200 presets, including some developed by renowned artists, selected for a variety of audio sources, full mixes and mastering.
Invigorate is available from Eventide Audio with an introductory retail price of $49 ($99 MSRP).
Crossgrade discounts are available for owners of other Newfangled Audio products.
Kush Audio – Get high…but with tube saturation
LG Drive is a simple and elegant device and it’s new.
This is a 2-Stage Tube Saturation color box whose thick, creamy distortions are taken directly from the AR-1 variable mµ compressor. When these distortions are coupled with a set of simple yet powerful filters and then mixed with the unprocessed signal, the result is a deceptively powerful tone-shaping tool that rivals (and often exceeds) EQ.
In addition it comes from Kush-Audio – a consistent winner in the YouTube thumbnail war! Comedy aside, Kush is all about quality so it’s definitely worth a look. And if you’re looking for the other kush, you might be disappointed but then maybe pleasantly surprised? In any case, are the resellers even offering Black Friday offers?
Beat Scholar – The Most Interesting Drum Sequencer We’ve Seen This Year
We love this plugin from Beat Scholar. It’s unlike anything we’ve seen and despite the overwhelming GUI, it’s actually very easy to use.
It’s especially suited for musicians looking for a great drum sequencer accompanist (808 anyone!?) and gives you plenty of options to program simple, yet incredibly complex things, easily.
Question: What do you get if Roland and Dominoes Pizza get married and produce a baby?
Answer: Modalics ‘Beat Scholar’.
Universal Audio – Last But Not Least
Last but not least is Universal Audio. There are very few lists where UA would be bottom but this list is not in any order. This is UA after all, a company with amazing sounding software and hardware and some of the most sought after gear.
As a Black Friday special, new subscribers to UAD Spark will be able to get an extended 3-month trial for just 99¢. UA’s native plug-in subscription for Mac and Windows PC, UAD Spark offers a growing collection of plug-ins and instruments, with titles from Neve, Moog, API, Lexicon, Studer, and UA.
