Cockos updates ReaPlugs to v1.1 (adds ReaXcomp and ReaDelay)


Cockos has updated its ReaPlugs VST FX Suite to v1.1. The collection now includes a multiband compressor, ReaXcomp, and an unlimited multitap delay, ReaDelay.

The other plugs were also updated with this release (including most of them being quite a bit faster, ReaEQ showing better previews of the filters with optional phase view, and more).

ReaPlugs VST FX Suite

ReaComp features:

  • Ultra-configurable compressor.
  • Soft knee support.
  • Sidechain filters, sidechain inputs.
  • Feedback compression mode.
  • Program dependent auto-release mode.
  • Variable RMS size.
  • Oversampling antialias modes (with optional limiting).
  • Optional make-up gain.
  • Optional lookahead.
  • Wet/dry mix.
  • Low CPU use.
  • Useful metering.

ReaXcomp features:

  • Unlimited band compressor.
  • Great metering per band.
  • Fantastic sounding filters.
  • Solo current band mode.
  • Tons of controls per band (ratio, threshold, knee, attack, release, makeup, program dependent release, feedback detector, RMS size)
  • Adjusting bands in graph is easy (modifiers to change ratio, gain, etc).

ReaDelay features:

  • Multi-tap delay, no practical limit on tap count.
  • Up to 10 second delay per tap.
  • Tap lengths can be in time (s/ms) or quarter notes.
  • Feedback, LPF/HPF, resolution reduction per tap.
  • Stereo width per tap.
  • Volume/pan per tap.

ReaEQ features:

  • Unlimited band IIR based equalizer.
  • Support for any number of many types of filters (shelfs, bands, LPF, HPF, notch, bandpass, allpass).
  • Frequency response and phase response display.
  • Display of approximate note+octave for frequencies.
  • Per-band bypass control.
  • Full-view of graph optional for precise editing.
  • Mouse modifiers/mousewheel usable for editing bandwidth of points in graph.

ReaFIR features:

  • FFT based dynamics processor (requires host plug-in delay compensation).
  • Supports FFT sizes of 128-32768.
  • Useful in/out frequency response display.
  • Supports defining response curves both using any number of points, or freehand mouse.
  • EQ - can be used as a linear phase mastering EQ, or as a super-effective surgical EQ.
  • Compressor - can compress at a fixed ratio with a per-band threshold.
  • Gate - can gate with per-band threshold.
  • Subtract - can build noise profiles and subtract noise from the signal.

ReaGate features:

  • Ultra-configurable gate.
  • Sidechain filters, sidechain input.
  • Lookahead for pre-open.
  • Hold control.
  • Hysteresis control.
  • Variable RMS size.
  • Can send MIDI events on gate open/close.
  • Wet/dry mix, noise mix (can add noise when gate is open).

ReaStream features:

  • Supports streaming from host to host of audio and/or MIDI over a LAN segment.
  • Supports streaming from different host software on each end.
  • Supports UDP broadcast for streaming one to many (if local network can keep up).

General features of ReaPlugs:
