Clip Shifter is a plugin designed to provide saturation and clipping effects to your audio. This can be useful for individual tracks, busses, and overall mixes. The sonic characteristics of the clipping distortion can be altered from hard, brickwall-style clipping, to softer saturation with compression. The threshold controls for Clip Shifter's clipping can be set to dynamically change based on the transient characteristic of the incoming audio.

Clip Shifter is available as a Windows 32-bit or 64-bit VST plugin.

Review for version 1.1.0 beta...

Hi,

this is my first review here on kvr and I picked the free ClipShifter by LVC-Audio. Why just a simple clipper? Because this little tool is full of powerful features when it comes to simple clipping up to dynamic limiting, dynamic distorting, dynamic saturating and also a bit of compressing. You can also use it as a simple tool for analysing the transients and the dynamic range of your audio material.

The version 1.1.0 is a bit different from the version 1.0.3. which was a part of the DC'12 here on KVR. The new version include a realy nice waveform viewer and an alias filter with up to 3x oversampling.

With a bit of tweaking you can push drumloops with a huge dynamic range easily into the maximum. And that for my taste in a realy musical and still dynamic way. The secret lies in the possibility to tweak the attack-, releasetime and the shape of the clipping curve. Other controllers like harmonics, initial and end values for the threshold also affects the dynamic.

As a nasty distortion or saturation tool you can put Clip Shifter on material like basslines or leads. You can automate all parameters and so you can get some nice distortion movements in sounds like a simple sinewave or complex reese basses. I think for all you dubsteppers and DnB guys this is a nice extra tool in your distortion arsenal ;-)

I compared ClipShifter with some other free clippers and limiters and have to say that this little gem plays by far in the upper league.

BTW ClipShifter comes in 32bit and 64bit VST format.

Bye, Impulslogik...

Try 2.0!! Great graphical ui showing the transients/waveform in real time. You can pick what frequency bands to clip. It also has oversampling now :) Give it a shot!
