Nomad Factory Analog Mastering Tools

Nomad Factory Analog Mastering Tools
Consists Of Three Plugins
The A.M.T Amp Leveling is a highly optimized look-ahead Brickwall Limiter and Level Maximization. The A.M.T Amp Leveler has been designed to be used for Mixing, Mastering, Tracking and Live use. Using a new proprietary algorithm ensuring a very smooth-warm sounding with maximum loudness and no digital-over-clipping as well as low CPU consumption for lightening-fast processing, the A.M.T Amp Leveler is nothing short of amazing.

* High quality signal processing algorithms
* Look-ahead Peak Limiting and Loudness Maximizer
* Input Threshold (Maximizer) variable from -20dB to +20dB
* Out Ceiling variable from -20dB to +20dB
* Recovery (Release Time) 5 settings
* Full Automation for all parameters PC and Mac OS X
* Easy-to-use vintage interface.
* Windows XP / Vista32
* VST, AU and RTAS supported
* 24 bit / 192 kHz supported

The A.M.T Max Warm is a highly optimized look-ahead Brickwall Limiter, Equalizer and Level Maximizer. What makes the A.M.T Max Warm process unique is the approach used for its dynamic signal analysis. Internally, the A.M.T Max Warm uses a special processing algorithm to accurately maximize the incoming signal level while limiting the ceiling peak levels. This approach tends to produce a more natural warm-sound, the A.M.T Max Warm also includes a two-band equalizer (Shelving/Peaking) with adjustable frequencies, making this plug-in an amazing advanced and versatile tool.

* High quality signal processing algorithms
* Peak Limiting and Loudness Maximizing with Baxandall Equalizer (Shelving/Peaking).
* Look-ahead Brickwall limiting
* Low and High Shelving controls - Boost / Cut up to 12dB
* Low Frequency variable from 60 Hz to 800 Hz (Shelving/Peaking)
* High Frequency variable from 1.2 kHz to 16 kHz (Shelving/Peaking)
* Input Threshold (Maximizer) variable from -20dB to +20dB
* Out Ceiling variable from -20dB to +20dB
* Limit Mode (Compression) 5 settings
* Recovery (Release Time) from 10ms to 999ms

The A.M.T Multi Max multiband peak limiter is a highly optimized 3 band look-ahead Brickwall Limiter, and Level Maximizer. The A.M.T Multi Max uses a special processing algorithm to accurately split and maximize the incoming signal level while limiting the ceiling peak levels. This approach tends to produce a loud and clear natural warm-sound. The A.M.T Multi Max 3 band crossover with adjustable frequencies delivers sweet highs and punchy lows, making this plug-in an amazing advanced and powerful tool. When you need maximum sound with minimum latency and complete control, the choice is clear, use the A.M.T Multi Max plug-in.

* 3-Band crossover high quality signal processing algorithms
* Look-ahead Peak Limiting and Loudness Maximizer
* Low, Mid and High bands gain controls - Boost / Cut up to 12dB per band
* Input Threshold (Maximizer) variable from -20dB to +20dB
* Out Ceiling variable from -20dB to +20dB

Free ePiano VST Plugin

I’ve used LoungeLizard for some time now and it’s great, but it’s not a free plugin that I can offer my visitors.
The only free VST plugin that comes close to LL is this one, I did not expect much at all because lets face it, it looks ├╝ber-cheap.. Boy was I wrong! (as always it seems)

It sounds really good and professional.
All you FL music makers will enjoy this one a lot since it sounds so much better than FL Keys, has more features and presets to tweak around with.

Fishing for Free VST effects

Blockfish - Free VST Compressor

The BLOCKFISH compressor is a dynamics compressor capable of a compact and dense sound (hence the name). But unlike a lot of digital compressors, it does not 'squash' your signal that much.
The focus was to keep your music alive and let it breathe. It comes with a typical 'vca' circuit providing modern compression - best for drums and guitars - and a classical 'opto' unit that recreates the sound of old photo-electrical gain devices and has been optimised for vocal tracks. The basic parameters are easily set up but you have access to futher adjustments that can turn BLOCKFISH into a real 'killer' device.

Floorfish - Free VST Expander / noise gate

FLOORFISH is a classical gate/expander unit that was originally designed to make acoustic drum recording much cleaner. Especially seperately miked snares and toms often unveil a large amount of 'bleeding noise' if you compress them. The FLOORFISH can help to lower this noise floor. Unlike a typical 'noise gate', the signal is not cut off completely if you do not want it to.

Spitfish - Free VST De-esser.
SPITFISH serves as an easy-to-use de-esser. If you ever had problems with loud sibilants and s-like vocals, this device can help to make those nasty sounds much smoother. You can also apply it to other signals that might need some evening out within the upper frequency range, e.g. cymbals and crashes.
The whole character has been tuned to 'nice' and 'gentle'. It should be almost impossible to make your recordings sound unnatural within the normal operational range.

Image Line PoiZone v2.1.VSTi
PoiZone is a subtractive synthesizer designed to bring you "professional quality results", without
a learning curve that hinders your creativity.The concept behind PoiZone was to design a synthesizer
that had the smallest number of controls while providing the maximum flexibility and features.

-2 oscillators that can produce the two most popular and useful shapes for subtractive synthesis:
fat, bright Saw and Pulse shapes, with adjustable pulse width.
-Noise generator.
-Ring modulation.
-Sync modulation.
-16 voices polyphony.
-4 voice Unison with user-adjustable stereo panning and 'Octaver'.
The Octave expands the harmonic range and flexibility of the unison sound to support the creation of realistic 'vox-like' effects.
-2 ADSR envelope generators. One for traditional envelope duties, the other can be user assigned.
-3 Filter modes - low pass, band pass and high pass. Capable of self oscillation. Special attention has been given to precise
filter tuning so that when KEYTRK is set to maximum, the PoiZone filter will track keyboard frequency precisely so it can be used
as an oscillator. The PoiZone filter has bright and clean sound or it can be 'grungy' and 'angry' when resonance is introduced as
it features some light distortion. And even with distortion the filter sounds clean on high frequencies as it has no aliasing.
Keyboard and Velocity tracking for the filter.
-Muti-mode Arpeggiator.
-Noise Gate with an adjustable 16 step pattern. The gate features smoothness control and the ability to import/export patterns to .fxp files.
-Delay effect, with tempo-synced click-free stereo delays and delay time modulation. Lo-cut and hi-cut.
-Chorus with a warm sound with unison emulation.
-MIDI learn feature with the ability to save/load MIDI setups to/from a patch.
-LFO and Mod Wheel modulation. Can be assigned to a wide range of performance parameters in PoiZone.
