Voxengo releases Peakbuster - Attack-Phase Boosting and Harmonic Enhancement Plugin

Voxengo

Voxengo has announced the release of Peakbuster, an attack-phase boosting and harmonic enhancement plugin available in AAX, AudioUnit, VST, and VST3 plugin formats for macOS and Windows computers.

Peakbuster is a multi-band transient enhancer effect plug-in that uses an advanced automatic algorithm. Voxengo says Peakbuster stands out from the competition in its ability to always sound natural, even on a full-spectrum master bus. The strength of the effect depends on the material being processed: the algorithm masterfully analyses dynamics of the sound it processes, and applies boosting in quantities that are "exactly right". Moreover, the algorithm has a suitably "fast" reaction time making its adjustments sound "fluid", not "over the place".

The amount of effect can be chosen independently for the lower and higher frequency ranges: this permits use of Peakbuster on a variety of program material, both full mixes and individual tracks.

Additionally, due to the nature of the algorithm's design, Peakbuster applies a unique harmonic coloration or enhancement: so, even if the gain adjustment meter shows only a minimal transient boosting amount at a given time, the plug-in still transforms the sound being processed in a way that to some engineers may sound "on a completely another level"; Voxengo call it "beyond tube warmness".

Peakbuster features:

  • Automatic transient boosting.
  • Selectable processing band count.
  • Stereo processing.
  • Up to 8x oversampling.
  • 64-bit floating point processing.
  • Preset manager.
  • Undo/redo history.
  • A/B comparisons.
  • Contextual hint messages.
  • All sample rates support.
  • Zero processing latency.

Introductory Price: US$49.95 until June 19, 2021 (regular US$59.95).

Peakbuster is free for Voxengo Premium Membership owners. Demo version of Peakbuster can be downloaded freely at the Voxengo web site.
