Ampire

Ampire is a guitar-rig simulator that leverages State Space Modeling for uncannily realistic re-creations of classic (expensive and heavy) guitar amplifiers, cabinets, and pedals. State Space Modeling is the surgical measuring and digital re-creation of analog hardware on a component level. The behavior of each capacitor, resistor, and diode and every circuitry element of the hardware has been measured, modeled, and re-created— including component-specific non-linearities. The result is wonderfully perfect virtual models of wonderfully imperfect audio hardware. No transformer has been overlooked and no valve left behind. Available in VST3, AU, AAX, and Studio One® Native Effects formats, Ampire will quickly become your favorite master of tone.

Create powerful process racks intuitively, on the fly, via drag-and-drop. Use convenient presets, or create your own custom processes from scratch. Preview and compare in real-time before committing, then process your source file nondestructively.

Utilizing state-of-the-art State Space Modeling technology, CTC-1 captures the character and personality of legendary analog consoles that are otherwise out of reach for most musicians, producers, and engineers. Going far beyond virtual channel strips and mastering plug-ins, CTC-1 brings real analog mixing to the digital domain. Unlike other summing effects plug-ins that only process a single channel or the output of a stereo bus, Mix Engine FX processes every channel of the mixer or bus separately with a single instance of the plug-in. When added to a bus channel or the main output in the Studio One console, every signal routed into that bus is processed independently at the source, allowing the plug-in to transform the sound of an entire mix while still maintaining the nuances and dynamics of every individual channel. The CTC-1 Mix Engine FX plug-in includes three classic analog console models: classic British, vintage tube, and a custom emulation, each with authentic State Space Modeling of input drive, channel noise, crosstalk, and character, plus easy-to-use automatic gain compensation and a pass-thru option for added flexibility.

Tom Brechtlein Drums Vol. 1 – HD Multitrack

Tom Brechtlein is a drummer’s drummer, a seasoned vet with a versatile skill set that is evidenced by the talented artists who have chosen to work with him, including Chick Corea, Kenny Loggins, Wayne Shorter, Jean-Luc Ponty, Christopher Cross, and Robben Ford. So when we decided to make a diverse drum library that could serve nearly any need, he was our first call. The result of Tom Brechtlein’s sessions? Brutal rock grooves, sludgy blues, Louisiana-worthy funk, and tasty jazz and fusion licks that will quickly make this library your secret weapon. His beats and grooves include several of his signature techniques. Recorded with Studio One®, the sample library shows off the beautiful acoustics of PreSonus’® own River City Studio, which was designed from the ground up by renowned architect and acoustician John Storyk of Walters-Storyk Design Group. River City Studio has hosted such artists as Terrance Higgins, Reba McEntire Band, Ethan Hawke, The Blind Boys of Alabama, Nothing More, Mutemath, Charlie Hunter, and Louisiana’s own LeRoux, to name a few. The library features more than 320 24-bit, 96 kHz loops in both stereo and multitrack formats, plus one-shot samples of the drum kit and a multi-layer Impact instrument. The loops include several beats, grooves, and fills from several genres at many tempos and are available in the same formats as the samples. Genres include rock, fusion, jazz, blues, funk, and our new double drum-kit loops that can be mixed and matched for endless combinations. Unique to this drum library, intros and fill patterns flow naturally into the groove, so that cymbal sustain carries over a loop start point to create a more nuanced, natural aesthetic. Other loop packs don’t do this, resulting in unnaturally abrupt cymbal and tom cutoff. Outros that don’t start on the downbeat are often tied into their groove as well, making it easier to place them in the timeline. Count-offs have also been left in many of the intros to allow greater flexibility in creating pickup beats without hours of frustration trying to properly place them on the right beat.

Brutal rock grooves, sludgy blues, Louisiana-worthy funk, and tasty jazz and fusion licks that will quickly make this library your secret weapon. His beats and grooves include several of his signature techniques. Vol. 2 focuses on Latin and jazz styles and includes beats, grooves, and fills from several genres at many tempos. Recorded with Studio One®, the sample library shows off the beautiful acoustics of PreSonus’® own River City Studio, which was designed from the ground up by renowned architect and acoustician John Storyk of Walters-Storyk Design Group. River City Studio has hosted such artists as Terrance Higgins, Reba McEntire Band, Ethan Hawke, The Blind Boys of Alabama, Nothing More, Mutemath, Charlie Hunter, and Louisiana’s own LeRoux, to name a few. Volume 2 features 4 Impact XT preset kits that have been optimized for use with the PreSonus ATOM controller, plus 135 Audioloops in many styles, including Latin, jazz, swing, ballad, bossa nova, mambo, rumba, and more, all recorded at 24-bit, 96 kHz resolution. Both stereo and multitrack versions of each loop are included, along with one-shot samples of the drum kit. Unique to this drum library, Intros and Fill patterns flow naturally into the groove, so that cymbal sustain carries over a loop start point to create a more nuanced, natural aesthetic. Other loop packs don’t do this, resulting in unnaturally abrupt cymbal and tom cutoff. Outros that don’t start on the downbeat are often tied into their groove as well, making it easier to place them in the timeline. Count-offs have also been left in many of the Intros to allow greater flexibility in creating pick-up beats without adding hours of frustration spent trying to properly place them on the right beat.

VU Meter

The VU Meter plug-in provides the best of both worlds for your signal metering needs: analog-style VU meters (with clip indicators) and LED-segment-style peak meters. VU meters are most useful for showing overall signal level, whereas peak meters (like those found in the mix consoles of most DAW applications) are most useful for keeping track of peak signal levels. By referencing both types, you can see a more nuanced picture of your signal. A stereo correlation meter rounds out the trio of meters in this plug-in, giving you insight into the left/right phase relationship of your signal. Available in Native Effects, VST3, AU, and AAX formats, VU Meter will let you analyze your signal levels like never before—and it’s our gift to you for being an audio nerd, just like us.
