Bitsonic has released version 2.0 of Godlike, a VST effect plug-in for Windows designed for mastering.
Here's what they say:
The most important aspect of this program is that it is designed to emulate the behaviour of analogue circuits and tape recording. Compared to other mastering software, Godlike 2 is able to create higher volume and less distortion.
Usually, with higher volumes, we need to lower deep frequency volume for the quality to remain. Tube virtualizer is the perfect solution as it allows higher quality in deeper frequencies.
The new Awd function provides a chance for even higher volume, but it's important to note that higher volume lowers the dynamics, and it's not necessarily the better choice.
Digital mastering often leads to an unattractive, harsh sound, whereas analogue systems generally allow greater control of volume and tone to be achieved while retaining the smooth sound that most listeners prefer. The software is designed to allow this sweet analogue sound from your digital studio.
Price: €109, but it's available with a 50% discount for every customer for two weeks.
