Easy Mid/Side conversion.What's New in v2.0?
Today we're proud to announce a release that has been in the works for months: v2.0, an upgrade for our entire plugin suite. Not only does version 2.0 look and feel better, it's lightning-fast under the hood - we've spent hundreds of hours of R&D to make v2.0 as quick and lightweight as possible. v2.0 is also packed with some great new features & improvements and a new, free mid/side plugin.
*Side-by-side Advanced pane. See all the controls at once!
*Better automation in Pro Tools
*DSP performance improvements throughout
*~2-4x faster "HQ Mode"
*Better, faster meters. All meters are now hardware accelerated
*Improved UI layouts
*M/S encoding & decoding
*High resolution M/S gain faders
*Large goniometer + metering
Of all the plugins, Lossy 2.0 is perhaps the most different from its predecessor. To be clear, nothing has been lost from version 1.0. We've simply added new "styles" of digital loss - or "modes" as we call them. In addition to the classic Standard Loss (which mimics the compression algorithms of MP3-like codecs), we recreated some other modes of digital "loss":
*Inverse Mode - everything that MP3 codecs strip out of the audio
*Phase Jitter - random inaccuracies in phase and timing
*Packet Loss - data packet dropouts of a bad connection
*Packet Repeat - repeated packets caused by a bad connection
*Standard + Packet Loss
*Standard + Packet Repeat
Want to see all of Lossy's modes in action? Check out a demonstration on YouTube.
Keeping track of all these new loss modes can be a little daunting, so we added a new sidebar visualization to help you see as well as hear them in realtime.
We've also updated the filter controls for easier filtering, as well as included an "Invert" filter mode that allows you to, well, invert your filter.
*New Stereo Spectroscope meter
*Whole new layout
Some of Vulf Compressor's magic certainly resides in its mystery, but we wanted to take just a little mystery of out of the metering. So the IN and OUT sliders now have inline meters for easy monitoring.
One other small improvement: because, sometimes, you don't really want to be faithful to the noisiness of the Roland SP-303's turn-of-the-century electronics, we added a little toggle in the sidebar. When it's lit up, noise is at its default value - that is, quite noisy. But when you click it once, the noise is muted. (Click again to get the noise back.)
Though its catalog number (0003) would suggest Tone Control was our third plugin, it was actually the first interface we designed. When we revisited Tone Control last month, we thought: what would this plugin look like if we designed it today instead of over two years ago? The answer: Tone Control 2.0 - more compact, more functions, more functional. Go ahead: control some tones!
In addition to a new layout, improved metering, and a larger frequency response curve, we've added an "HQ Mode" with a linear phase control. The "HQ Mode," which uses the highest precision filters we've ever built, sounds incredible, and the variable linear phase control takes it even further. Go from analog-style minimum phase operation to ruler-flat linear phase in one smooth control.
Lastly, Tone Control 2.0 adds an advanced "Processing Mode" - making it possible to process only part of a stereo input: left, right, mid, or side. Use it to quickly tone-sculpt your stereo content or fix an unbalanced stereo field.
Trem Control's sidebar monitor now includes an accurate visualization of the current "position" of the tremolo curve.
As in Vulf Compressor, Trem Control also has a new sidebar noise toggle. (After all, one of the great benefits of digital technology is that you don't have to have noise if you don't want it).
*Added a handy Bit Scope meter
*Added an "Auto Blanking" indicator
*Fixed a Pro Tools "Auto Blanking" bug
*Added a "Filter Glide Time" Advanced control
*Wider limiter/saturator range
*Added a gain reduction history meter
*Added a "Master Mix" control
*Added sidechaining support
*New "Auto Gain" control for peak-level matching
*Wider gain ranges
*New "Threshold" and "Output Gain" indicators
*Added a "Pan Glide Time" control
*Added On/Off controls for each panning module
*Added sidebar buttons to quickly change input/output mode
*Level meters now show both input & output levels
*Fixed some mid/side linking issues
*New Advanced layout

All in all, v2.0 is a huge release for us here at Goodhertz. We really hope you like the new plugins, and if you have any issues upgrading, please contact us.- Goodhertz, Inc.
