Use this plug-in to add vibrancy, liveliness, depth, and subtle changes
in timbre to sounds in mastering applications. As one user said, "It
makes my old tapes come alive again. Better than when they were
originally recorded." Contrast can also be used to create a wide range
of extreme transformations and effects.
Contrast takes a completely original approach to compression/expansion-type processing
Contrast analyzes a user-defined frequency range within the spectrum of
an input sound and groups the frequency components within that range
according to the strength of their amplitudes. The groups are frequency
components with strong amplitudes, frequency components with medium
amplitudes, and frequency components with weak amplitudes. The strength
of each of the groups can then be modified independently.
Why do this? Because this approach allows you to redefine the character
of a sound in a powerful and original way. If you decrease the strength
of the medium and weak amplitudes, thus emphasizing the strong
amplitudes, for example, you'll make a sound more mellow. If you
strengthen the medium amplitudes relative to the stronger and weaker
amplitudes, you'll add vibrancy, liveliness, and depth to a sound. If
you strengthen the weak amplitudes relative to the others, you'll make
the sound more metallic, harsh, and percussive.
This plug-in gives you powerful and dynamic controls to rebalance the
highs, lows, and midrange of a sound. In the stereo version of this
plug-in, you can control the equalization curves of left and right
channels independently or together.
Equalize is a 31-band graphic equalizer. Each band, controlled by a
single slider, is 1/3- octave according to the ISO norm. Intuitive
mouse-and-key commands are used to manipulate the slider controls easily
and responsively. You can create an equalization curve with simple
mouse gestures, for example, or move the curve to higher or lower
frequencies, or control any number of sliders as a group. This plug-in
turns an equalizer into a performance instrument.
Use this plug-in to transpose or transform a sound by any combination of frequency scaling or frequency shifting.
Shift contains two functions that can be used separately or together.
The scale function transposes a sound by multiplying each spectral component by a constant frequency.
The shift function is a frequency shifter, sometimes referred to as a
single-sideband ring modulator, that adds a constant frequency to each
spectral component. When you use a frequency shifter, harmonic sounds
Use this plug-in to transform a sound by rearranging its frequency
components in a completely free and creative way. One user said, "This
is the most far out, the most radical, the most bizarre, powerful, and
effective sound transformation tool I have ever seen."
Freq War allows you to transferring a frequency from the input sound to a
new position in the output sound, and the output sound will contain a
rearrangement of the frequency components of the input sound. This can
result in a radical change in timbre.|
