Couture gives you control over your dynamics, and particularly attacks.
Raw Efficiency. Increase or decrease dynamics. Get a usable result, now.
Fully Volume-independent. Keep the freedom to change input gain when needed. Including the Saturation stage.
Laser-sharp. Couture's 2-bands, half-spectral, RMS, program-dependent detector finds each and every transient. No internal thresholds.
Couture is very versatile:
This is Freemium software.
There are two versions:
Couture is a great shaper for drums and especially percussions. I use it most of the time to add punch or snappiness to the tracks.
I have seen videos of people using it on a master bus, but I'm not sure that is the correct use of this plugin.
We put that in an example on the website, but I agree it can be a bit much on the master bus especially with comple dynamics Couture will struggle. This can be appropriate on the master bus for a dance mix before a limiter or clipper, to smash it more.
Good plugin. I run Reaper 6.03 native Linux, and I have Couture embedded in a couple of drumset track templates. I've been exploring compression and saturation on drum tracks recently, and the ability to add saturation and shape transients in a single plugin is great, especially on cymbals.
I have a couple of drumset templates where I send the cymbals to a separate submix, and send that submix through Couture. The transient and saturation controls give me lots of flexibility while mixing.
I started with the free version, but wanted the saturation, so I bought it. I'm glad I did. I only use the Sin, Bass and Tube saturation settings, (the others are a bit too intense for me) but as I said, they work great on cymbals.
I specifically got it for drum tracks, and it does the job well...
Good stuff.Read Review
