Auburn Sounds

Maker of Graillon, Panagement, Couture, and Renegate.

Auburn Sounds' mission is to have the largest impact on Electronic Music production, building meaningful products with unprecedented attention to quality.

We leave no stone unturned. Each product is painfully crafted in every detail.

Panagement is the breakout product that found its place among thousands of professional studios across the world, despite a very competitive market.

Graillon not only propulsed itself amongst the best products for Pitch Correction, but was also the first plug-in to provide Pitch Tracking Modulation (PTM) for real-time voice transformation.

Auburn Sounds is not afraid to lead technically, being first in the audio market to use real-time Physically Based Rendering and the ultra-productive D language. Today other developers use our Open-Source framework Dplug to create their own products.

Lens proved to be an essential part of my free toolkit. Beautiful idea and execution, if you're intricately familiar with multiband compression. You could use it without such knowledge, but its utility and innovation really shines when you understand the problems that mb-comp tries to solve - or plugin designers try to solve when sketching the product out.

Up to 64 bands with great fast control in one window, linear phase and a manageable CPU overhead? This is extremely useful for sounddesign, and I can't be grateful enough for the free version, as it makes so, so easy to recommend this to students. Yes, Pro-MB offers a very fine-tuned control, but not only it is around $200, but also it's a different beast at the end of the day.

I don't know anything like Lens, and I became a fan in the first day.

My applause to you, Auburn, you did it again.

Response from Guillaume Piolat from Auburn Sounds on December 28th, 2022

Thanks, it's an honour. It's not "linear phase", it's more "constant phase", you pay a constant phase cost for passing into Lens.

I fell in love with this plugin from first use. I tried many different gates for voice-over tasks with average results. But this one really does the job perfectly. Graphical display is very helpful for making correct settings. Renegate is all you need for cleaning voice tracks. Thank you for this awesome plugin.
All the best and kind regards.

For me, it's a very good mixing tool for deciding where I want to place things in the mix very quickly. It is essentially a volume and stereo pan in a single button, and then add whatever reverb and/or delay to that. These plugins are in my top-tier along with Tokyo Dawn Labs, but these are easier since they have native Linux versions for when I moved to Reaper and Bitwig on Linux.

Hands down, one of the best free pitch-correction plugins.

I use it all the time, with subtle settings, especially during tracking vocals, during playback.

Once a dry vocal take is recorded, enable it during playback, and watch the singer's eyes glow on how well they have sung, as they can't even tell it's there. Gives them confidence and I end up with great vocal takes. Try it.

Couture is a great shaper for drums and especially percussions. I use it most of the time to add punch or snappiness to the tracks.

I have seen videos of people using it on a master bus, but I'm not sure that is the correct use of this plugin.

Response from Guillaume Piolat from Auburn Sounds on January 31st, 2023

We put that in an example on the website, but I agree it can be a bit much on the master bus especially with comple dynamics Couture will struggle. This can be appropriate on the master bus for a dance mix before a limiter or clipper, to smash it more.

One of the best Gate/Expander VST that's also free (limited).

Use it to remove background noise or be creative and add a 'pumping' effect to your track.

I use it as a creative tool for doubling vocal tracks to make certain parts stand out.

Good plugin. I run Reaper 6.03 native Linux, and I have Couture embedded in a couple of drumset track templates. I've been exploring compression and saturation on drum tracks recently, and the ability to add saturation and shape transients in a single plugin is great, especially on cymbals.

I have a couple of drumset templates where I send the cymbals to a separate submix, and send that submix through Couture. The transient and saturation controls give me lots of flexibility while mixing.

I started with the free version, but wanted the saturation, so I bought it. I'm glad I did. I only use the Sin, Bass and Tube saturation settings, (the others are a bit too intense for me) but as I said, they work great on cymbals.

I specifically got it for drum tracks, and it does the job well...

Good stuff.
