NUGEN Audio releases NUtility Toolkit Bundle


NUGEN Audio has unveiled its new NUtility Toolkit, which consists of the SigMod, AB Assist, Jotter and Aligner plug-ins.

Designed for entry-level and seasoned audio professionals alike, NUtility Toolkit aims to fill gaps in DAW functionality and speed up tedious admin tasks in order for audio engineers to focus on the more creative aspects of their job.

Introducing these utility plug-ins to your workflow will be a game-changer. It's like finally buying a food processor when you've been using a pestle and mortar for the past decade. Do you have any idea how much more often I make pesto these days?

  • SigMod enables the user to create custom signal architecture in order to enhance the functionality of both your DAW and third-party plug-ins. The plug-in also offers access to functionality like phase flip and a mid/side encoder and decoder.
  • AB Assist 2 receives and compares up to four audio sources – different takes, plug-in options, mix revisions or versions of a master, with support for all surround channel counts. The blind test function randomly labels the streams as W, X, Y and Z for an unbiased assessment of the audio options. Additionally, an auto-level match function allows the user to match short-term loudness (LUFS) of sources, while a mono-check feature compares mono fold-downs and the smooth tool creates fades between sources.
  • Aligner is an automatic phase and polarity alignment tool designed for convenience and speed. With the automatic linking functionality, users can connect multiple instances of the plug-in in order to phase-correct all channels via one single user interface. The plug-in also includes manual phase adjustment for fine-tuning especially challenging audio.
  • Jotter provides easy sharing of timestamped notes and comments between the plug-in and the free standalone Jotter app. The latter allows clients and collaborators who may not own the plug-in (or may not use a DAW full stop) to share their important feedback, and for audio engineers to view this feedback locked to the correct position on the project timeline. With this solution, NUGEN Audio has also rolled out the brand's first accessibility features, such as screen reader support and keyboard shortcuts for users with visual impairments.

NUtility Toolkit is available in AAX, VST3, AU and AudioSuite formats in 64-bit for both macOS and Windows.

The bundle will is available for $99 (A saving of $107 versus the cost of the tools purchased individually). Current users of any of these tools can upgrade to the bundle at a reduced rate.
