SKnote releases Baz (Bass Saturator; Compressor; Exciter) and FD4 (Compressor)

SKnote

SKnote has released two new VST effect plug-ins for Windows: Baz, a bass saturator, compressor and exciter, and FD4, which offers a set of 4 different, parallel compressors in a single rack. MSRP for each plug-in is €79 (VAT and taxes included).

BazBaz is a bass saturator, compressor and exciter. It is a simple but deep effect.

Main features:

  • Frequency splitting (incoming audio is divided in low and high frequencies for separate processing and mixing).
  • Input boost with automatic output compensation (controls dynamics while keeping the output level constant).
  • Level based compression (multistage "full band" compression).
  • Spectral based selective compression (bass range is divided in bands and each band is limited to tame resonances often found in recorded bass).
  • Low band drive. Introduces harmonics to modify the sound or "translate" low frequencies to more suitable range.

Main uses on Bass are:

  • Taming resonances (spectral compression).
  • Leveling RMS and adding sustain (full band compression).
  • Translating frequencies from low to mid-low band (drive).
  • Sound processing and equalization.

FD4FD4 is a set of 4 different, parallel compressors in a single rack, each one with a totally different character and saturation. Inspired by a famous mixing technique, it provides multiple parallel compression, with sample accurate mixing between compressors and dry signal.

  • Compressor 1: Smooth, even harmonics.
  • Compressor 2: Transparent.
  • Compressor 3: Fast, odd harmonics.
  • Compressor 4: Brickwall limiter.

An optional multiband mode routes each compressor to a separate input/output.
