Sonic Timeworks announced Version 3.2 of its Sharc One--Timeworks recording channel plug-in for Creamware's Scope Fusion Platform.The Sharc One is available in both stereo and mono versions.
With high-end Timeworks DSP algorithms, users can experience super-transparent compression, desirable "breathing and pumping," and the sound-sculpting possibilities of the 64-bit Perfect Analog Simulation VintagEQ that is unique to the platform. The compressor is based on the CompressorX algorithm, with selectable hard/soft-knee compression curves, and both RMS and peak-level detection circuit. There's also a new analog-style VU meter with peak/overload-detection LED, switchable to display gain reduction or input/output levels. The 4-band equalizer is based on the VintagEQ analog algorithm.Also included are high/low-shelving, two parametric mids and 15 dBs of cut and boost. The limiter allows you to increase the perceived level of the signal without causing digital distortion by using a softclip algorithm.
