WaveArtsTubeSaturator2-web

Wave Arts is pleased to announce Tube Saturator 2. Tube Saturator 2 is a super accurate circuit simulation of a tube pre-amp with analog EQ, which can be overdriven gently for warming effects, or cranked for fat distortion. Like its predecessor, Tube Saturator, TS-2 is based on circuit simulation technology to capture every nuance of an analog circuit. But while the original consumed large amounts of CPU power, TS-2 is now super-efficient. The Saturation section of TS-2 runs about 7x faster than the original and yet the modeling is even more accurate. In addition to this improvement in speed, TS-2 has many new features. You can switch between 12AX7 and 12AU7 tubes for different harmonic characteristics. The EQ can be switched to run pre or post saturation. Saturation and EQ are separately switchable. Also there is a 2x oversampling mode using a very high quality resampler algorithm. Also new is a mix control to blend the processed sound with the original. And finally, TS-2 has a gorgeous new interface. TS-2 is available for AU/VST/AAX formats on Mac and Windows, licensed using Pace/iLok. The price is $99. www.wavearts.com.

ENCO MULTIPLAY-webENCO announces the release of Multi-Play mode, a new feature available in the latest DAD radio automation software suite that greatly enhances Live-Assist functionality within the on-air workflow for music station formats. At its core, Multi-Play mode enables more intuitive console integration and seamless manipulation of audio assets. The Live-Assist Presenter module, when configured with Multi-Play mode, effectively displays to the operator exactly what is playing during segues and makes layering audio effortless. This integration results in Multi-Play Presenter, giving operators a highly agile, logical and easy-to-follow workflow that allows the operator to sequence and layer multiple, simultaneous audio tracks. Multi-Play Presenter ramps up workflow efficiency by simplifying how operators air music segues with multiple shotgun liners, or mix music beds with multiple voiceovers on the fly. Additionally, operators have the creative freedom to play elements out of scheduled order without having to re-arrange the playlist. Multi-Play Presenter also adds an intelligent console interface, which allows operators to control shows from console faders and bus keys with confidence. Importantly, transitioning from manual interaction to full automation with DAD remains as seamless as ever. www.enco.com.

FuzzMeasure-SShot-webSuperMegaUltraGroovy announced FuzzMeasure 4, a major update to its professional audio and acoustic measurement software designed for OS X Yosemite. With over 50 new features and improvements in the product, FuzzMeasure now offers unparalleled flexibility and power for generating, analyzing, and publishing graphs from swept sine audio and acoustic measurements. In addition, many of FuzzMeasure’s calculations have been improved in both accuracy and performance. FuzzMeasure is known for its easy-to-use interface offering one-click measurements with extensive Core Audio hardware support for multichannel devices and sample rates up to 192kHz. Now FuzzMeasure 4 improves greatly on the software’s most valuable asset with its all-new graphing interface. FuzzMeasure 4 allows users to combine any of its 18 graphs with any other—enabling thousands of different.  ways to visualize measurements in ways that were never before possible. FuzzMeasure 4 requires OS X Yosemite. Pricing starts at $99.99 for personal use, and is $499.99 for commercial use. www.fuzzmeasure.com. ►
