The plug-in is an easy to use distance “pan-pot” based on several psycho-acoustic models. The idea is to give mixing engineer a reliable tool which allows him to manipulate the “depth” of several sound source in a straight forward and convincing manner.
Several models can be combined:
Distance signal delay by speed of sound
Distance gain loss
Absorption of high-frequencies in air
Stereo width manipulation
Proximity effect of virtual microphone
Distance based early reflections
All models can be turned on and off to taste. Distance modulation options extend the creative possibilities even further. Units can be switched from metric (meters) to imperial (inches).
Utility is a free, lightweight, universal general purpose all in one digital channel strip plugin offering precise controls over various aspects of an audio signal, from mid/side processing to soft clipping.
input routing with separate pans for the left and right channels, or alternatively a pre mono balance control to decide how the left and right channels are blended for conversion into mono
gain, and individual left and right channel gains, mutes
pan and phase inversion of either channel
width control, along with separate mid and side gain sliders and mutes
maximally flat minimal phase high and low pass 12db/octave filtering
optional hard and soft clipping at 0db
everything is fully automatable with sensible parameter ranges/scaling
The Sonalksis FreeG is everything you need in a master fader. A simple, but absolutely indispensable plug-in, the FreeG extends the functionality of a typical audio host by providing a large-format style fader, along with ultra accurate metering. FreeG helps to maximise workflow with extended, customizable metering, and multiple control features and settings.
When working with digital audio, a lack of fine metering and extended signal flow control in the host is a common issue. FreeG helps to improve workflow in the host by providing these features in the insert chain. By delivering enhanced control of amplitude, phase and pan (stereo version) in the insert chain as well as fine metering, with user configurable industry standard ballistic options, the freeG is the perfect master control.
Ultra accurate metering
Multiple metering ballistic types
Peak and RMS readouts
Pre/Post metering options
‘Fine’ mode for sensitive calibration of the master fader
