- Essential Channel
The Essential Channel delivers maximum processing flexibility with minimum space required. The most critical channel processing functions are provided in a single plug-in: 3-band parametric EQ, Hi and Lo Shelf filters, Compressor, DeEsser, Noise Gate, and a Brick-Wall Limiter. This high-quality channel insert is a must for any digital audio project.
- The Essential Graphic EQ
The Essential Graphic EQ is the perfect tool for sculpting the fine detail out of raw digital audio. 15 frequency bands, adjustable bandwidth and brick-wall limiter allow for precise control over each audio channel. For any type of project, this EQ lets each track stand out with its own sonic character.
- Essential Compressor
A quality compressor is an integral part of any studio toolkit. And with the Essential Compressor, every studio can be assured of professional results. This compressor provides intuitive control over the Threshold, Ratio, Attack, Release, and Make-Up gain. For both vocal and instrument tracks, the resulting sound is unmatched.
- Essential Gate / Expander
Don’t lose valuable dynamic range in your tracks. Raise the level without increasing unwanted noise in the audio. The Essential Gate/Expander tames the noise floor so that you hear only the audio you want to keep. This fully adjustable gate allows control of Threshold, Attack, Hold, Release and Range.
- Multiband Loudness Maximizer
Make your mix stand out from the crowd. The Multiband Loudness Maximizer brings the sound of professional mastering to any audio application. The new multiband limiter from Nomad Factory delivers three frequency bands of look-ahead limiting and brick-wall limiting to precisely control and maximize the levels of a mix.
- Loudness Maximizer
The Loudness Maximizer from Nomad Factory is the ultimate peak limiter for increasing audio levels. This Maximizer delivers look-ahead limiting and brick-wall limiting to maximize the levels of any studio project. Use the Loudness Maximizer on mono or stereo channels to get your mix noticed.
- Tube/Tape Warmer
Digital audio can sometimes sound lifeless or brittle. Add some analog warmth to those tracks with Nomad Factory’s Tube/Tape Warmer. This effect gives sterile audio the coveted sounds of tube circuitry and analog tape saturation. Turn up the Drive control for extra bite, add Warmth to hear those tubes, and Blend the sounds of the analog tape and tube warmth.
The Retro-Vox by Nomad Factory provides amazing effects and processing functions for use specifically on vocal tracks. In addition to a Gate and Compressor, this plug-in offers Tone controls and hi/lo pass filters to create a wide range of vocal effects, such as “Gramophone," tape simulation or the mid-range “phone voice."
