United Plugins

Soundevice Digital, part of United Plugins, has announced version 1.3 of Royal Compressor, the vintage-style hardware emulating plugin. Version 1.3 now includes a phase-shifting function.

Soundevice discarded the "useless" Fuse added Dry/Wet control so that you could take advantage of the parallel processing (Preset stored with previous versions will set the parameter to 100% wet).

Users can also use new Trim control to calibrate the overall effect volume (0 to -100dB). A few bugs were also fixed. Some systems wrongly reported the Release parameter values. That is now fixed. Also, minor performance and compatibility improvements were added.

Major improvements have also been made on the core of all United Plugins effects (that includes Hyperspace, FireCobra and close future releases):

  • Added support for VST2 getProgramName used for example by Akai VIP to browse through plugin's presets.
  • Performance improvements for loading and initialization.
  • Removed text edit for parameters, where it didn't make sense.
  • GPU acceleration can now be disabled from the right-click menu.

The update is free for current users - download it from the product page. The free Second-Hand version is updated. But the changes concern only internal fixes. No extra features added. If you have not tried Royal Compressor, get the free fully working 15-days trial version.
