Flux:: announces the release of its Studio Session Pack plug-in bundle that contains eight of the company's plug-ins: Pure Compressor, Pure Expander, Pure Limiter, Epure, Syrah, BitterSweet Pro, Verb Session, and Pure Analyzer (MRSP $299; available until August 31, 2016 for $149).
Pure Compressor offers attack, release, threshold and ratio, plus control of the fundamental characteristics and essential dynamics profile used for the compression, with hands-on controls for every parameter, all in order to achieve the ultimate dynamics processing in every situation.
Pure Expander is capable of anything from mild expansion to hard noise gating, and suited for soft downward expansion to clean up spillage on (live) recordings, remove noise, reverberation and leakage from drum sessions. Pure Expander is designed to automatically reduce the gain below the threshold, providing full control over the general behavior, and of the performance characteristics and how it responds to the incoming audio signal.
Pure Limiter Version 3 is designed to make transparent limiting easy; a dramatic increase of the average audio level can now be accomplished without damaging the perceived audio quality, with the proprietary Flux:: technology generating a release envelope assuring that no artifacts on the processed sound are produced. Unless used as a special effect, Pure Limiter V. 3 is recommended as the last stage in an audio processing chain.
The Epure 5-band equalizer is tuned with Flux:: proprietary State-Space technology to preserve the optimal signal to noise ratio independent of the parameter settings, preventing the signal from deteriorating when the gain is reduced. Epure is designed to be a go-to processor for day-to-day session work, as well as an efficient sharp-edged surgical precision tool for demanding equalizing and filtering tasks.
The Syrah dynamics processor uses real-time dynamic detection and level dependent processing to provide adaptive dynamic capabilities. Using parts of the company's BitterSweet technology, new adaptive-dynamics technology, and level independent dynamics processing, Syrah is well suited as a creative versatile processor for recording and mixing, as well as for delicate and demanding mastering tasks.
BitterSweet Pro is built around an improved design of the algorithm found in the Flux:: transient processor, BitterSweet. One of the main features of BitterSweet Pro is its Frequency Dependent Transient Processing, providing the ability to process only a certain part of the frequency spectrum making it act just like a dynamic equalizer driven by Transients or Sustain.
Verb Session, based on the same technology used in Ircam Verb, is tailored for simplicity with a fast paced workflow well-suited for situations where the desired result has to be achieved within seconds.
Pure Analyzer is a stand-alone application providing a comprehensive range of analyzer options for audio analysis and measurement applications. A SampleGrabber plug-in available in all standard plug-in formats, inserted into the insert chain on any DAW or digital mixing console supporting standard plug-ins, is used to grab the audio samples and send the signal through the network to the Pure Analyzer stand-alone app for instant real-time analysis. The Studio Session version of Pure Analyzer has no hardware I/O support and can not be expanded with the Pure Analyzer add-on options.
