Posted by: DontCrack Sep 18 2011, 11:31 AM

Dear friends,

As stated in our product pages :

Once you have purchased or upgraded to http://store.dontcrack.com/product_info.php?manufacturers_id=72&products_id=888, all subsequent plug-ins released for the V.I.P. bundle will be free of charge ! In 2012 we will expand the DontCrack V.I.P. bundle to over 40 plug-ins - and as you are a V.I.P. customer we wont ask you for any more money.

Therefore, if you have any suggestions about new plug-ins you'd like us to create, please let us know. Keep in mind that DontCrack plug-ins must be simple and quick to use. So don't ask us to create a new DAW or a complete multi effect plug-in. That is not the point...

We look forward to completing our DC V.I.P. Series bundle with nice & easy plug-ins that inspire creativity, not restrain it !

Thanks in advance for your collaboration.

Kind Regards - Peter

Hi,

I suggest a panner plugin, like Melda's Autopan or the Pan Station from Audio damage. Something like these.

Cheers smile.gif

Hi Morpheus,

Doesn't this one work for you :

Posted by: Morpheus Sep 19 2011, 05:51 PM

Yes, it's o.k., but I mean a pure stereo panner, without or not based on soundeffects like tremolo or so on.....you know? smile.gif

Since I use my DAW rig for mixing live concerts with SAC (softwareaudioconsole), I would like to see something really simple:

A Tap Delay with a dedicated tap button! Nowadays there are billions of delay/echo plugins available. Most of them can do sophisticated things like: F.e. Ping pong, rhythmic delay patterns, inverse dealy and so on. But there a only very few tap-able (by mouse clicking) delays out there! The sync-option is nothing you can use in a live scenario, a simple tap button would do the trick. Maybe add sweepable a hi- and low-cut to it. And it would be really cool, if you could add a simple one-knob overdrive/distortion feature to this plugin. Distorted delays are quite "hipp" in modern rock mixes. So this would be three knobs in total.
1. Hi Cut
2. Low Cut
3. Overdrive

and one Tap Button. That's it. I'm quite sure, there are lot of live sound techs out there, that would really appreciate a plugin like that. Even if you don't use SAC, there are vst-host out there (f.e. the "live-professor": http://ifoundasound.com/?page_id=8 ), that can replace a lot of common outboard gear needed for mixing concerts. The "poor mans Waves Multirack" ( http://www.waveslive.com/html/multirack.aspx ) as one may say wink.gif

Hi Christian,

Thanks for this great suggestion ! We'll discuss this ASAP.

Kind Regards - Peter

Posted by: lobsterinn Sep 21 2011, 05:42 PM

ideas for future DC plugs:

-bit crusher / lo-fi plugin
-spring reverb
-speaker simulator
-models of specific distortion pedals (i.e. Big Muff, Pro Co Rat, Ibanez Tube Screamer, etc.)
-"tilt' EQ
-Electro-Harmonix Memory Man
-pitch shifting delay
-vocoder

Posted by: Morpheus Sep 21 2011, 08:47 PM

An expander and perhaps a frequence shifter or a granular pitch shifter?

Cheers
Morpheus

Thanks guys,

All of these sound great and we will start evaluating asap.

I'd like to see a collection of "maintenance tools".. e.g. Denoiser, Declicker etc.
A De-Esser would be nice too.
But one plugin I would love to have (and I have so far never found a way to achieve this via one single plugin,.. it usually involves a lot of delicate handling), is .. a "De-Popper"...
You have a great vocal track (no possibility of re-recording it), but the singer didn't use a pop shield.
Now, build us a "virtual pop shield" that works like "the morning after pill", and I shall love you forever! tongue.gif

Posted by: FrankydT Sep 25 2011, 04:52 PM

+1 for the panner-balancer.
Especially a good MONO panner. Only Pro Tools offers a +/- 100 range-resolution panner. (I work in Logic Pro)
And I can't simply find just 1 mono pan plugin around.
It would save me.

We are working on all suggestions that have been posted above. Really cool ones too !

The good news is that we should have a new version tomorrow or thursday at the latest. It wont be 1.0.2 but 1.2. Ain't that good food to speculate... wink.gif

Posted by: rogerking Sep 30 2011, 08:15 AM

Just bought the collection - great value as a bundle and some really nice individual plugs in there. What's missing, and hard to find anywhere, is some genuine multichannel dynamics. The compressors are particularly good, I think - would love to have them available for 5.1 mix compression or drum busses.

Hi rogerking,

That is good food for the mind... We'll talk our devs into that !

Thanks for the kind words and the useful comment. We'll try to follow-up on that.

I'd really appreciate a decent Leslie cabinet.
There are already some very good ones out there (e.g. the one in AmpliTube 3), but they all involve loading some large plugin (Amplitube 3, Guitar Rig 4+ etc) or loading an actual virtual B3 as an FX. The Dont Crack ethic of "one plugin for one job" would be perfect for this wink.gif.

Hi Peter,
kudos for being so fast in reacting to us DC-plug-in users' suggestions.
Always nice to know that one is not talking into the deep black void.

Anyways, here's my two cents:

The DC-Retro Equaliser could use a low cut filter IMHO, so that you don't have to use up the nice low band controls for it.
How about two push buttons to the left of the V.U., one with "40 Hz" cut when pushed, the other with "80 Hz" and pushing
both together would give you... "150 Hz"! (Did I do my math? No waaay!)

It would keep the simplicity of the GUI and the whole concept intact, but would free up a whole band of EQ.
I photoshopped that into the original, like so: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/25038534/DC-RetroLowCut.jpg

One plug-in that could use additional pizzazz is the Beatles' EQ (DC brightness).
Yes, the 2.8 Hz - 3.5 Hz - 10 Hz peak boost/cut was what they used. BUT, to my knowledge, this was
an addition to what they had in the EMI mixing console, namely a 100 Hz shelf cut/boost
and a 10 kHz shelf/5 kHz peak boost.
...there is space for one smaller pot each left and right to the big knob - again, totally in keeping
the looks and easy layout of the original. I would buy the improved version!!!

Thanks for listening to my babble.
Best, mojoboxx

+1 for restauration plugins like a (useable) denoiser, a declicker and decrackler. I don't think it is possible, but it would be great If we could get a hint if they are coming within the introprice period...

I think the effects sound cool & are fast and easy to use - fine.
EQs & compressors are already available in every possible flavour - so I think its a waste of time to build more....
. whats definitely missing is automation/midi capability!!!!!!!!
for further development Id like to see:
. tube leslie simulation, syncable and fast/slow/brake switch (midi!!!), amp controlls
. a good wah wah pedal - like the fulltone clyde deluxe - that doesnt click(step) when the pedal moves fast (also midi controlled)
. simulation of the digitech whammy pedal
. a few more cool echo units (like memory man deluxe, binsonette, space echo, tc 2290.....)
. something like the moogerfooger pedals
. tc 1210 chorus/flanger

looking forward to new developments

best regards
joerg

like the plugs Peter. Very easy to use and some of them have some really interesting preset sounds. I have just bought them and will be looking forward to the next series of plugs.

Do you have any plans on making a killer vocal rider? That would be awesome!

Thanks for the nice series,

Don Reynolds

Posted by: ramadev Oct 8 2011, 03:57 PM

+1 for a de-esser. Hopefully this is already in progress?

Great sounding plugs, thank you for making them available!

Posted by: SmeeNZ Oct 9 2011, 01:51 PM

A couple of pluggins I like to use you might consider:

Reapers ReaGate: Very nice plug, but the main thing I use this for is the MIDI triggering. You can send MIDI notes when the gate opens. Perfect for replacing drum elements (kick, snare etc).

VarietyOfSound DensityMK11: Bus compressor. Kinda like a 1176, but not really. Just something big and transparent that like the Density sounds better the more you crank it. Omg I love that comp haha. Stillwell Audio also has one that sounds amazing, but I cant get the UI through my head, its crazy (someone mentioned it looks like the dash in his Nissan Maxima haha)

What about a range of plugs that really focus in on certain instruments and offers 3 or 4 knobs of options to tweak. Much like the Waves signature range or perhaps the Toontracks EZmix?! I've tried both and found them to be handy little tools.

Couple of ideas for the pile for ya. Keep up the great work. Really digging the VIP range so far.

Posted by: mojoboxx Oct 9 2011, 10:12 PM

Hi, some may say I have too much spare time at my hands...

Agreed, so here's the photoshopped GUI of the improved DC-Brightness (aka Beatles Abbey Road EQ) I was talking about in a previous mail:
http://dl.dropbox.com/u/25038534/AbbeyRoad-EQ.jpg

The 10 kHz shelf cut and 5 kHz peak boost on the right side knob may seem positively odd, but that was what was available on EMI's REDD-Console.
Of all the plug-ins dealing with the subject, this would be the one to REALLY offer what those lovely Liverpool lads had!

Best, mojoboxx

Posted by: Medienhexer Oct 10 2011, 07:56 AM

Hi

Great suggestions so far. I'd like to add:
- rhythmical gate (pattern gate, stutter gate, trance gate, whatever you'd like to call it). The MOTU Digital Performer has one which is quite nice
- Autofilter (Which reacts to the volume of your signal, see Logic Pro for example).
- Autowah with resonance filter
- Bass-Synth effect (see Boss Bass-Synth effects pedal) which is triggered by the audio signal
- comb filter with resonance, ring modulation and metalize parameters for robot voices, crazy drums and aetherial pad sounds
- Fuzz (different characteristics, plus Octaver on/off)
- A noise gate with a switch that allows you to activate a LoFi on/off sound like that spooky effect in the Cosmonaut Voice? plugin for Pro Tools
- Phase shifting effect that allows you to create pseudo-surround effects

Posted by: grahamdwc Oct 10 2011, 03:56 PM

Hi Peter and Co.
I was thinking over the weekend about what ya'll could come up with next.
And i was thinking it would be really nice if there was a nice Mono to Stereo Plugin (Pseudo Stereo effect) in the VIP Series.

Graham

A stereo width plugin could be cool. A big knob that would move the L or the R channel(adjustable?) a few ms forward, an Lp/HP/BP filter and a dry/wet knob. Something like the Waves doubler only cleaner and simpler (the waves doubler has at least 6.7ms delay).

What Im thinking is a tool for something like backing vocals if I dont have the takes to pan it manually. This could be a simple and clean approach to something many people use frequently.

Also, an additional Mono maker knob (which adjusts the frequency the mono starts in the low end) would be cool with

Posted by: Medienhexer Oct 14 2011, 09:18 PM

Oh and one suggestion concerning the Mac installer:

Please add a "select all" button. It might be okay to select 22 plugins one at a time, but the closer we get to 40something, the more likely severe injuries from the clicking-strain will become.

YES! I've heard the difference between bass panned in the center and no bass in center but distributed to the far outer sides. I didn't think this possible but there is such thing. I think a M/S processing could do that. So maybe a frequency-selective stereo width effect? Say, a band pass to select a frequency range and then a width control?

Maybe also have a look at this Stereo width compressor effect by Crysonic. They never delivered in terms of stability and performance for me but the idea is quite ingenius. Don't compress the dynamics but the stereo width!

+1 from me too.. especially if installing VST and AU and RTAS.. that's a lot of checkboxes! smile.gif

Posted by: mojoboxx Oct 23 2011, 08:02 PM

Hi, I have been using the DC Echoflex a lot lately. It's my go-to delay plug in.
So, "all's well that sounds well?" Not quite. Frankly, the order of the control knobs is somewhat irritating, IMHO.

Me thinks that the huge knobs should be labeled ECHO TIME - SUSTAIN - MIX - OUT and the small knobs top left
and right should be TONE and VARIATION. Looka here: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/25038534/DC-EchoflexKnobs.jpg

Why?
Because that would set the focus on the major controls that are essential to a delay and make the additional stuff less prominent - after all, a delay would still be a delay without a tone or flutter control, but not without TIME, REPEAT (=SUSTAIN), MIX and OUT.

It also would have the nice side effect of making these important controls easier to fine tune as the knobs are bigger :-)
Just my two cents...

Best,
mojoboxx

+1

A collection similar to (but better, of course) the Waves restoration collection of plugs seems like an essential for a comprehensive plugin suite. Until hiss, pops, clicks, and other nasties have been eliminated from the world no DAW is safe. Can I vote more than once for this? smile.gif

Lobsterinn mentioned a spring reverb that I also think would be great and is in keeping with FX that can have simple interfaces. Maybe include a randomized "accidentally whacked the box" button just for fun.

Also, Medienhexer mentioned a, "comb filter with resonance, ring modulation and metalize parameters for robot voices, crazy drums and aetherial pad sounds", and, "Phase shifting effect that allows you to create pseudo-surround effects", that both sound like winners.

I think Medienhexer is on to something even bigger, however. With the inclusion of a restoration suite and maybe multi-band dyanamics your bundle would then cover more than enough bread and butter processing and standard FX (imo, of course). Perhaps what could further differentiate DC from other devs would be to begin concentrating on a few esoteric FX in the spirit of GRM tools.

I mean, how many straight-ahead flavors of distortion, filter, and time domain plugs do we need?

I'm just sayin'. smile.gif

Posted by: Fytr41 Jan 22 2012, 11:42 PM

Hello. I am really using these plugins in a lot of my productions and on top of everyone else's excellent suggestions:
I would like a Mid/Side encoder and decoder.
I would like to be able to sidechain/key input all of the current plugins.
For something different I would like a voice to midi converter.

Cheers,
Colin.

Posted by: F4LLOUT5HELTER Mar 28 2012, 11:32 PM

First I must say that I disagree with most of the suggestions here. The spirit of the V.I.P. bundle seems to be classic analog emulations of compressors, eq and modulation and enhancers.

I would like to see a:
Neve 33609 emulation for buss compression.

Russian Big Muff Pi guitar pedal. The best sounding Big Muff IMO and never emulated.

Amp Head and Cabinet simulator. Please keep the gui scheme though because I hate the speaker looking plugs. It should look like a hardware amp simulator, cause that's what it really is anyways.

Chandler Limited Germanium Compressor. I love the EMI sounding hardware.

DBX 106Vu

Channel Strip with selectable preamp saturation to VCA clean compressor with HP filter, to sweet Eq (I'm thinking NightEq aka Maag Eq4) to limiter for overs.

The bundle is pretty complete IMO. I think of it as UAD for the hardware impaired.

Hi Peter not sure if its been asked for but how's about a "tilt" type eq plugin. I think it would fit well in DC range.

Graham

Posted by: Medienhexer Sep 22 2012, 10:22 AM

Is it too late to suggest a vintage Vocoder?

I know there's one in Logic and then there's... Not much, really. I predict the second coming of the vocoding if only someone got it right. Just give me a side chain input to feed my modulation signal and let the vocoder vocode the channel I insert it into.

And then give me some basic parameters and the iconic vintage sounds. If you want to go crazy, add something more modern as an additional mode.

Looking forward to the upcoming update

Posted by: Medienhexer Sep 22 2012, 10:26 AM

Oh and the obvious one these days - a console emulation which is easy to use. Don't really need any more saturation, I think. Just the cross talk / cross modulation part. I'm really tempted by the current Waves NLS pricing and you could relieve me and possibly others from those urges :-)

Posted by: riteshreet Nov 6 2012, 10:19 AM

Nowadays there are millions of delay/echo plugins available. Most of them can do sophisticated things, But one plugin I would like to share with you is a "De-Popper".

Posted by: Davoe Dec 21 2012, 07:39 PM

A light-weight CPU usage plug-in similar to:

FreeG

http://www.sonalksis.com/freeg.htm

Primary objective would be light CPU usage so it can go on every channel of very high track count sessions, and comply with Automap for hardware control.

I realize if you stick with your GUI the meter won't be able to perform the same level of detail, but that's not what I'm after. I don't think Sonalksis will be making an AAX version of this, and I currently use FreeG and Automap on every channel as an alternate mode of mixing for high track count post-production sessions, as opposed to the Pro Tools channel faders.

Automap has announced that AAX support is coming, and thankfully you also do AAX.

Features of it I'd say should be:

- Big knob should be the fader, that drops to infinity as well as +12
- a smaller knob "Trim" (critical in preserving a previous pass move but just wanting to adjust overall level)
- Pan knob (that pans stereo as well as mono sources)
- Flip L & R

Optional:

- MS Decoder

Your plug ins work very well with Automap, especially since there are so few controls everything fits easily on one page.

Hi all, first post so I think I'll add my biggest request for a native plugin that I've wanted for many years and just maybe DC can can be the first and only dev to listen, seeing as they have listened to many of the requests posted in this thread already, and also I think it fits the P&M ethos perfectly! A very simple but very accurate Moog 4-pole ladder filter? No bells No whistles,just a well emulated Moog Low Pass Filter. Please

I would love a trancegate. nomad maga has one, the tough thing would be to supply the tg with less gui space...

Posted by: MARIU5 Apr 3 2013, 07:40 AM

Quick suggestions : The Electro Optical comp needs a mix knob and a x2 or x4 sidechain freq switch to get more hi pass frequency options, very useful when mixing vocals or drums.

The Echo Flex needs a better ping pong delay, it's ok in stereo but when using the ping pong function the left tap is a lot louder, it would be nice to have the second right tap as loud as the first one, otherwise the left channel appears louder all the time, also it would be cool to have the option to have the first tap start on the right channel too, and of course a reverse delay effect ...

Hello Marius,

The "Less-More" knob does function as a "Mix" knob as the less you have the drier the signal is, when you add "more" there is more of the "wet" or the limiting function.

Hadn't noticed the difference in level in the ping-pong as I use it a lot in mono myself, I guess the devs thought that each repeat should lose level as the it jumps from left to right while it decays. You're right that the right should hit as hard as the left to establish the stereo on the first repeat. I'll pass it on.

Quick suggestions : The Electro Optical comp needs a mix knob and a x2 or x4 sidechain freq switch to get more hi pass frequency options, very useful when mixing vocals or drums.

The Echo Flex needs a better ping pong delay, it's ok in stereo but when using the ping pong function the left tap is a lot louder, it would be nice to have the second right tap as loud as the first one, otherwise the left channel appears louder all the time, also it would be cool to have the option to have the first tap start on the right channel too, and of course a reverse delay effect ...



Hello MARIU5,

Almost missed the side chain comment, yes it is very useful and something that a lot of people are using right now.
I will add it to the developer's "must do" list.

Hi Jay,

Thanks for the kind words and your business of course :-)

New plugs are on the way but not yet a Moog filter. I do think it is a great idea and have past this along to the devs...

I was just re-reading this topic, to see if a Noise Gate (i.e. "expander"-type, rather than "rhythmic gater") was already on the request list.
Not quite sure which of those two you were referring to as being already no the "to do list" (hopefully, both? smile.gif )

Hello vic_france,

If this is a definition of the tools you want to see then yes they are on the "to do list".

Expander/Noise Gate Filter
An expander increases the dynamic range of an audio signal by attenuating (reducing the gain of) the signal when it drops below a certain level (the threshold). This has the effect of making relatively quiet portions of the audio signal even more quiet proportionally, so the difference between the loud and quiet parts of the audio are increased.

An expander makes quieter portions of audio even quieter by decreasing the audio level if it drops below a specified level. The lower a level is relative to the specified audio level threshold, the more it is decreased, depending on the Ratio setting. An expander with a very high ratio value is called a noise gate and is used to make the level of all sound below the specified audio level threshold as close to silence as possible.

Best Regards,

Nick

Yes, ideally with each step controllable both in level and in length (i.e. variable percentage of the step itself, but also with possibility of tying to the next step).

Hello vic_france,

I will pass it along to the developers to see how easy it would be for them to build it in.

The trick is to incorporate tiny fades as digital hates cutting audio that isn't at a zero crossing point, gives us those nice little audible clicks that most people don't appreciate at all.

There are very few options out there, the soundtoys micro shift which requires an ilok (UGH) Schwa's CMX (Really great sound BUT 32 bit only, never gets updated) Waves doubler (not a fan of the sound and waves in general) and I think that's about it, the pitch chorus effect is extremely useful on vocals, there is an algorithm in older Lexicon hardware that lets you run two micro pitch shifters per side in stereo for a super lush and thick sound, no one makes this type of effect as far as I know ...

Hello MARIU5,

A great suggestion, I remember that algorithm in older Lexicon hardware, it had lots of great uses when you want to keep the timing tight.

You can do something similar with delays with a slight oscillation but you add a timing offset to the signal, not really great when you want a voice or guitar to stay in the groove.

I will pass the suggestion along to the developers.

All the best,

Hi Nick,

a couple of suggestions for improvements in your existing plug-ins :

Octaplexer : could we have a 3 pole switch added, giving the options of the regular 2 octaves below (sub-octaves) mode, 1 octave above / 1 octave below mode, and 2 octaves above (would that be sur-octaves?) mode.

Ambiosoniq : could the throw of the graphic EQ faders be extended / enlarged. Whilst the current design is adhering to the general aesthetic principles of P&M, the faders are rather bunched up, which makes them difficult to use when subtle changes are required.

I'm slowly getting used to the oblique naming conventions for some of the plug-ins (that's all part of the charm), and I'm gratful that you've taken the time to tag the plug-ins in terms of functionality, or I'd probably never find some of them in Pro Tools.

Please don't go too way out there with the names of future plug-ins, as I do sometimes find myself hunting around, and auditioning several of your plug-ins, whilst trying to find a specific one which isn't immediately obvious in terms of it's name - that may just be me, but all those minutes add up at the end of the day, and considering the manifesto of Plug & Mix, it's a little ironic that whilst the plug-ins themselves sound fantastic, and help speed up the workflow, finding the right one can slow things down because of something as simple as the plug-in's name.

Love the product though, and really looking forward to the new additions.

Cheers!

Hello Carl,

With the Octaplexer, we thought that having the 2 octave spread would be enough as a lot of the instruments that would be treated would into go into a region where they would be conflicting with those all important Bass Drums and Bass guitars and synths. Going down another octave would also put a lot of energy into the sub-sonic range that can cause compressors to react in a way that causes all kinds of weird behaviour and should be filtered out. Most of the instruments we all use are in the lower end of the spectrum and would fall into this category.

Yes, Ambiosoniq has a tight arrangement of its faders, could suggest automating them with your DAW? I sometimes do this with other plug-ins that have a busy interface, using the DAW interface to enlarge the parameter in question until it is on a large scale that I could do microscopic edit if I want to, listen back and adjust till its exactly what I want. I'll pass your suggestion to see if there is any way to make it more comfortable.

With ProTools now there is a way of grouping the effects according to their "family" EQs, compressors, etc on the inserts, maybe your DAW does this as well as it really helps sorting out your plug-ins when you have a lot. So when you have discovered what they do you can put them a "family" with all the similar "brothers" and "sisters".

The good news is that there are another five coming very very soon smile.gif Stay tuned.

Best Regards,

Nick

Hi Nick,

with regards to Octaplexer, I was suggesting adding two octaves above the input signal (not another two octaves below the existing sub-octaves).

For exactly the reasons you stated, it can be really useful (on occasion) to take a bass instrument, and generate higher octaves above the input signal.

Often you'll get guitarists using octave dividers to create the impression of a doubled up bass line. What I'm suggesting would be the exact opposite - a bassist adding upper octaves to create the impression of a lead line.



I'll take a look at your suggestion for using automation lanes to adjust the controls of Ambiosoniq .

Generally I prefer to dial the sound in, before adding automation, as it can upset the workflow a little downstream, and I also had a feeling that in the past I was automating a P&M plug-in (can't remember which right now) and the units displayed in the automation lane bore no relation to the units used on the plug-in GUI - like one was in dB, and the other was in percentages - which made things a little tricky.


I am using Pro Tools, and as I mentioned, your plug-ins are sorted by category, as well as manufacturer, which has certainly helped me track down some of the more obliquely named plug-ins - I just found that some of the names were not immediately obvious as to the plug-in's function, or one did what you expected another to do, going by name alone (the number of times I've pulled up Liquid Air Q, when I was looking for Ambiosoniq, or I've been hunting around the amp simulations, unable to find the Vox simulator, because it's name does not adhere to the convention established by your other three amp sims, and it's much further down the list of plug-ins available).

I totally get where the names come from, or how they are derived, and it's certainly part of the charm.

Like I said, It's probably just me being a bit thick at times, but I feel it definitely is a case of having to learn the P&M plugs by names, as much as function - and I feel that slightly goes against your original ethos.

If perhaps there were additional meta-data / tags that could be included "behind the scenes", so that for example, all your amp simulations appear next to each other in the plug-in list (whether in the manufacturer list, or the category lists), and likewise with your EQ's and dynamics, rather than being scattered around alphabetically - which relies on numbskulls like myself actually remembering the names (though I am getting there).

It's not so much a problem when manufacturers only have a handful of plug-ins to choose from, but as we're now looking at 45 plug-ins - only a handful of which I use on every mix, the others being pulled up as and when the situation demands - that's a lot of names to remember.

Still, I really can't wait to get my hands on those five new plug-ins!

Cheers!

Hello Carl,

As we have a lot to do and responded quickly here I missed the "octaves above". The logic of the plug-in is to add bass not move things up, so I jumped on that.

It is a great idea but it will mean some added development time to pitch shift up rather than just down.

And it is a difficult thing to do and sound "natural" unless you want a strange sounding guitar. have you heard some of the "octavizers" on guitar that give a 12 string sound? Some of them are not very pretty, unless you like "trashy" sounding 12 strings, which can work in certain styles of music.

Strange coincidence, we just sent out a newsletter with the focus on a fantastic pitch shifter by IRCAM LAB that is unbelievably musical. I really thing you should check it out, if you didn't get the newsletter, drop me a line and I will pass on the link where you can try it out until the 10th of June.

With regards to Ambiosoniq, I also prefer to dial the sound in like you, then add automation to correct the details. If there is a different in the naming of the scales dBs become percentage, it is hard for me to know why as I didn't program them, to know if this is P+M problem or ProTools. In the end it all comes down to the sound. Sometimes I close my eyes while adjusting a plug-in to not be influenced by the settings I see in the plug-in and it is a good thing as the settings are at +20db in some cases, but it sounds right for that particular mix or track. blink.gif

About the names I can see your point even with the sorting one can do with ProTools, I have never looked into whether one can "rename" or "nickname" the plug-ins, but I doubt we can in ProTools so they have an order that corresponds to our usage.
It is a bit late to re-adjust them now and we are going to add to your problem by adding another 5 that have some interesting names as well dry.gif

All the best,

Nick

Posted by: Carl Kolchak Jun 5 2014, 05:12 PM

Cheers Nick, I'll keep an ear out for the IRCAM - although I'm probably not in the market for another timestetch / pitchshift plug-in right now, what with Melodyne, Elastic Audio, and a couple of other tools I have.

To be honest, I don't think I've ever heard a real-time pitch shifting effect that sounds completely "natural" on guitars, it's just an interesting sound / effect in it's own right, to my ears.

If you want to get down with the kids, here's a pretty good example of pitch shifting a Bass guitar up, to give the impression of a regular guitar doubling up :

Yes an expander/gate/ Hush type unit would be great, I really enjoy your tube amp plug-ins but there is some hiss to deal with afterwards, cheers


Hello richardsstudio,

Yes a gate would be helpful, especially with the guitar amps when the saturation is turned up.

It is on the list.

Hi, I suggest an EQ to differently deal Mid/Side and Left/Right wink.gif

Hello Pentacheese,

That is a great suggestion, a stereo EQ dealing with Mid/Side and Left/Right.

I guess it would be basically for Mastering?

Nick

Hi Nick,

Basically yes smile.gif
To give you some examples: EasyQ (Rs-met) or Pro-Q (Fabfilter)
But they are EQ parametric.

Thanks in advance!

Hello pplecha,

Agreed, it has been right put right on the top of the list with the other favourite , noise-gate.

Thanks for your input.

Hi together,

I'm new here on this forum and bought these really cool Plugin-bundle yesterday - I'm really happy - nice tools! :-)

I've one question regarding the Transcontrol and maybe it could be a new feature:
I tried to get a similar sound like on the SPL Transient Designer preset I use and I'm almost there. But, I think the big difference is that the Transcontrol is Input-Gain-dependent and the SPL is not. So I had to boost the signal before the Transcontrol to get more effect from the Attack-knob.

So, is there the possibility to integrate an input gain knob? An alternative would be to make it input-gain-independent, but then it would be important to have a higher 'standard-input-gain' or a wider range for the attack knob.

Best Regards,
Todd

Hello Todd,

It wasn't part of the original design but I see the logic in your question as the effect does depend on the level of the input.

One could as you probably did send the channel to an AUX so you have control over the level going into the Transcontrol, but it would be much easier to have control over the input level in the plug-in itself.

I will pass on your request to the developers;

Thanks for your input.

Best Regards,

Nick

Hi, I just realized that Digital Reverb (unlike Digital Plate) sums the input signal to mono before processing. Could you change it so that it keeps the stereo information like Digital Plate does? Sometimes I like to pan the reverb send of some instruments to the sides of the stereo field but that can't be done if the input signal is summed to mono.

Hello geroyannis,

I did a little test and you are correct, although the Digital Reverb doesn't sum the left or right signal to mono. The pre-delayed or initial signal stays where it was positioned in the stereo field.

The source stays in position but a less intense part of the signal does go to the opposite side to be present in the overall 'picture' of the reverb as it would in reality. An instrument played on the left of the stage in a hall would flow out to all parts of the space and be less loud in the furthest opposite corner to a listener. It is an accurate representation. But I understand what you would like it to do.

The Digital Plate if you send on the left, the source like that of the digital reverb stays left and the reverb is totally left as well, the right does the same, if hard panned right.

Both reverbs were based on vintage analogue models that had these characteristics.

Maybe in a further revision, we could add a function where the pre-delay, early reflections and tailing off stay in place according to the assignment in the stereo field. It would be less 'real' if you see what I mean but would accomplish the 'effect' you are looking for.

Best Regards,

Nick

hello there,

i am not sure if anybody came up with these things already, but i'd just throw in a couple of ideas...

- a (stereo) delay with further effects on board - phaser, distortion, ... maybe even with the ability to assign bespoke effects to single taps (ok, might be a little over the top, but absolutely awesome after all wink.gif )
- similar reverb plugin, meaning where you can add effects to the tail
- some kind of metering-suite-plugin for loudness/stereo field/dynamic range...
- multi-mode filter plugin with some kind of lfo/envelope stuff going on to get rhythmic filter effects

i guess thats all for now wink.gif

however, keep up the work guys - your plugins are absolutely great! couldn't think of a session without using at least some of them wink.gif

Hi, I was wondering if it's possible to add the VIP bundle license to an USB stick to make it easier when traveling between studios? The 5 authorizations would run out in no time, also I haven't found a way to deactivate the license when my job is done at lets say studio X... as it is not my intention to give every studio a free VIP bundle on my expense. A transportable license would be an awesome addition. Thanks

Hi Notes,

Thanks for your interest in DontCrack and Plug&Mix.

Copyright protection is a necessary evil, but we have tried to make it real easy for our clients by making it a simple "serial number" authorisation.

As you said you can authorise up to Five machines/studios with your license.

So you could install the P&M V.I.P. Bundle at the site you are working. When the DAW reboots it will ask for your "serial number" that you can carry with you on your internal drive or USB Key (in case you forgot it, you can even log in to our store look at your order history and retrieve it from there.)

Of course when you install and authorise at another site, you are effectively giving away one of your licenses, so it would be advised to trash the P&M folder after finishing the job.

As you are using an external drive as your boot disk, you won't have to do this if the DAW you are using is on that drive as well.

If you are using the client's DAW, it will have to find the plug-ins in the folder where that DAW needs to find it. (where the plug-ins are, for example with ProTools in the Library/Application support/Avid folder) Just trash that when you are done.

You should be able to do this quite a few times with your serial as the fact you trash the folder resets the count on that machine.

I you ever find you have exhausted the license, just send me a support ticket and I will get you a 'fresh' serial.

Here is the link for that:

http://www.plugandmix.com/about/contact/

Hope this is clear enough and helps you out.

Best Regards,

Nick

Thank you for the info Nick.

If I understand it correctly the license gets stored in to the Pro Tools plug-in folder itself. As in my documents folder there's also a folder containing a file called VIP1.dc (C:\Users\*******\Documents\Plug and Mix\Licensing\VIP1.dc) do I need to trash this folder as well when leaving the location DAW behind? All the rest sounds pretty clear to me, thanks again

Hello Notes,

Yes, it would be a good idea to get rid of the VIP1.dc file. It helps to 'reset' of the license and will help keep the count of license from increasing.

hey there,

i'd like to suggest a clipper plugin for upcoming p&m products - although there's plenty of limiters on the market, what i miss is a high quality clipper, maybe with two main settings for soft and hard clipping respectively. the vu meter could function as some kind of gain reduction meter. what do you think?

cheers!

Nice,would be great with a waveform display to see how much of the peaks are being clipped.

Hi,

I bought a "Pro Series" of p&m product.
Everything is a very wonderful plug-in!

But I propose that knee setting and the Look ahead function are necessary to a compressor.

I'm not good at English and am sorry.

Thanks for the nice series.

looking forward to new developments.

Posted by: uguno Jan 25 2018, 08:08 PM

mistake!

Not a Look ahead, but high pass filter.

Hi Gonbee,

Thanks for the useful comments. I passed along to the development team.
