ChannelTools

 

ChannelTools is a freeware VST plug-in to perform various  tasks, primarly to control and analyze the levels of signals and to check and modify the stereo image.




Features:

 

- Written in C++, unique buggy :) DSP algorithms developed by myself.

- Awful GUI designed by myself.

- Purely digital, not analog modeled.

- Two gain faders with leds for activity (green leds) and clip (red leds).

- Configurable gain smoothing.

- Stereo width fader (0 to 200 %) with correlation meter.

- Pan fader with "stereo position meter".

- Swap left and right channels.

- Invert phase.

- Mono.

- Mute.

- Limiter (hard limiter, clipper, not analog modeled, digital).

- Metering (peak and RMS).

- Double precision (64-bit) floating point internal processing engine.

- Double precision (64-bit) floating point audio input/output on VST 2.4 compatible hosts.
- Full automation support.
- Any sample rate supported.
- Zero latency.
- Very CPU friendly.

Click here to download the old 1.0.8 version.
 
IMPORTANT NOTE: It's in "beta version", contains new features and functions that have not yet been fully tested and optimized, use with care.

TheHardLimiter


The simplest, fastest hard digital limiter (clipper), brutal, like the one in ChannelTools, purely digital, not analog modeled. 
Samples over the ceiling level are set to the ceiling level, other samples are unaltered, few CPU cycles, zero latency.



Features:

- Written in C++, unique buggy :) DSP algorithms developed by myself.

- Awful GUI designed by myself.

- Purely digital, not analog modeled.

- Faders with leds for activity (green leds) and clip (red leds).

- Metering (peak and RMS).

- Remove DC offset (configurable).

- A/B/C/D settings slots, slots are saved by the host and can be saved in FXP/FXB files.
- Double precision (64-bit) floating point internal processing engine.

- Double precision (64-bit) floating point audio input/output on VST 2.4 compatible hosts.
- Full automation support.
- Any sample rate supported.
- Zero latency.
- Very CPU friendly.

TheTestComp


TheTestComp is an experimental compressor (and limiter) based on a strange algorithm, it's different from other compressors.
Attack and release times are fixed: zero milliseconds (0.0 ms).

Soon (not very soon...) I will make another compressor based on this, his name will be.... ThePressor, also known as Depressor :)
