About our signature plugins

PHILOSOPHY

 

Our goal is to create plug-ins that sound amazing and don’t cost an arm and a leg.  We don’t see any reason to charge hundreds (or thousands) of dollars for a plugin. Musicians have it hard enough, so our products will always be affordably priced.  Always.

 

We hope you enjoy them as much as we do.

THE PARALLEL DRUMS PLUGIN

The Parallel Drums plugin is Parallel Compression to the max

No phase shift. No artifacts. No overloads. No delay. No flanging. No extra routing.

Just "the sound".

We think it's the best Parallel Compressor ever. Absolutely killer

The internal gain structure, compression, limiting & functionality of the PCP is exactly how it is done on an analog console.  All the settings, processes, filters and algorithms were compiled from Rob's personal gear and recall sheets from his mix sessions for P!nk, Christina Aguilera, Will Smith, LeAnn Rimes, Pat Monahan (Train), Josh Todd (BuckCherry), Janet Jackson and more.  Very cool.  

 

The Parallel Drums plugin uses a patent-pending process that preserves all the integrity of the direct (dry) signal as you add fully processed, New York style parallel compression from -144dB all the way to +24dB.  Creamy and cool, like parallel compression should be... for your Drum Aux, Kick, Snare, Toms, Overheads & Room.

THE MIX BUSS LITE PLUGIN

 

The three most common “mix buss” questions I am asked are:

    “How can I make my mixes LOUD without sounding over-compressed?“ 

    “How can I get my mixes to sound like a record?”

    “How do I get the bottom end right?”

 

The MixBussLite is the answer.  

 

For years, mix engineers have been using ‘secret’ signal chains of compressors, limiters, equalizers and other equipment to infuse magic into their mixes.  The MixBussLite has it all in a simple, easy to use plugin that everyone can appreciate. And it sounds great on everything.

The MixBussLite will add volume, color, depth, clarity and warmth to your mix. From the first time you use it, you will quickly discover the sonic character of your mixes will be vastly improved.  Creating loud, competitive mixes has never been easier. 

THE DRUM BUSS LITE PLUGIN

 

The three most common “drum buss” questions I am asked are:

    “How can I get my drums to sound LOUD without killing my mix?“ 

    “How can I get my drums to sound like a record?”

    “How do I get my drums to sound MODERN?”

 

The DrumBussLite is the answer.  

Inside the DrumBussLite is a chain of signal processors that create a more exciting drum sound.  The DrumBussLite is incredibly simple and easy to use. With the turn of a knob, your drums will begin to “sit in the mix” and sound more modern.  From the first time you use it, you will improve the sound and feel of your drums.

THE M1 LIMITER LITE PLUGIN

 

The three most common “Master Fader" questions I am asked are:

    “How loud should I print my mixes?“ 

    “What is a good output level for CD burning or Video?”

    “How much headroom should I leave for the Mastering Engineer?”

 

The M1LimiterLite is the answer.  

 

The M1LimiterLite is a transparent compressor and brick wall peak limiter with intelligent attack and release controls. The input control drives the limiter section to make your mixes as loud as possible without overloading the Output. The Headroom control allows you to easily select the perfect output level for Digital Releases, CD Burning, Video Broadcast or for sending to a Mastering Engineer. 

 

And the amount of level you can get WITHOUT creating a mess in the low end is astonishing.

Eliminate the doubt. With the M1LimiterLite, your mixes will be at the correct level every time. 

And you will NEVER lose the level war again. 

We should have named the M1LimiterLite the OMG plugin. 

THE SYNTH BUSS LITE PLUGIN

 

The five most popular keyboards are:

    Piano.

    Rhodes.

    Wurlitzer.

    Organ.

    Synthesizer.

 

The SynthBussLite handles all of them in the most complimentary way.   

 

The SynthBussLite is our newest signal processor.  It was specifically designed to help create a more modern and exciting keyboard sound.  With the turn of a knob, the SynthBussLite will enrich the natural tone of your keyboards without overpowering the vocal.

THE BASS BUSS LITE PLUGIN

 

The three most common “Bass” questions I am asked are:

    “How do I get the low end right?“ 

    “How can I get the bass to be loud without taking up too much space?”

    “How do I get the low end right?“

 

OK. That last question was a duplicate.  But, that’s how important it is.

 

The BassBussLite is a simple and easy to use plugin that helps the Bass sound the way it should.  The BassBussLite has been in the works for 3-years. 

Inside the BassBussLite is a chain of signal processors that create a more exciting and modern Bass sound without overpowering the mix.  The BassBussLite is incredibly simple and easy to use.  From the very first time you use it, your Bass will begin to “sit in the mix” with clarity, weight and definition.   And every time you use it, the sound and feel of the Bass will be noticeably better.
