SounDevice Digital (part of United Plugins) has released Autoformer, a new dynamic plugin that treats audio in three stages.
Autoformer was created to save your time and treat your tracks' dynamics with minimum effort. It was made to improve your tracks and also to fix unbalanced performances. To iron the dynamic imperfections.
Autoformer features a responsive photorealistic 3D graphic user interface divided into three sections that represent the processing stages:
- Colour: The first processing stage sets the gain and adds colour and warmth using a selection of three analogue PREAMP types.
- Polish: The core feature (BALANCER) is an intelligent volume rider. It is meant to be almost inaudible. Leveller sets the amount of automatic volume compensation while the Seer knob controls the look-ahead parameter – in other words, sets the latency of the track so that Leveller could act as precisely as possible (so do not tweak this parameter during playback).
- Finish: To soothe the dynamics of your track without changing your signal's spectral character engage the fast modern COMPRESSOR. No colour, just fix. And yes, there's also the fourth section which simply controls the output volume.
SounDevice Digital says:
Autoformer is an ideal companion for mixing both bass guitar and double bass performances. It is indispensable when creating vocal or voice-over tracks. But it can be also used to balance drum records. Frankly, you can use it on any track.
