Zynaptiq ZAP II Bundle (Zynaptiq Audio Processors)

The Cutting Edge, Season 2

The version 2 upgrade of Zynaptiq’s highly acclaimed ZAP Bundle combines all eight of our AI and source separation based plugins into a single, value-packed processing suite. Restore your sound’s natural frequency response, remove reverb and masking effects, reduce codec/denoiser artifacts, and modify pitches within mixed music on the fly. Create unheard new hybrid sounds, drones and morphing transitions, and boost or attenuate drums in mixed music. Add punch to your drum stems, mutate, beautify, cross-filter or polish your sounds, and even add the only ultra-lush, musical reverb that tracks your audio’s harmonics.


Highlights

All in real-time, a lightning fast workflow, and with award-winning quality. Add the future of audio processing to your toolkit now with ZAP II – The Zynaptiq Audio Processors Bundle, Version 2.

What's included in the ZAP II Bundle:

UNVEIL: De-Reverberation & Signal Focusing

Boost or suppress reverb in your recordings, and fine-tune overall clarity, with award-winning quality.

UNFILTER: Adaptive Tonal Contour Linearization

Remove resonances, roll-offs, comb-filtering and solve any other type of EQ problem including mastering applications automatically, with award-winning precision and quality.

UNCHIRP: Codec Artifact Removal & Transient Retrieval

Restore audio compromised by poor encoding, and add clarity, definition and punch to your recordings.

PITCHMAP: Re-Write Mixed Music in Real-Time.

Change the harmonies and melodies of polyphonic recordings, samples, loops, or even full mixes on the fly, while correcting tuning and suppressing individual sounds based on their pitch at the same time.

MORPH 2: Real-Time Structural Audio Morphing.

Apply high-end morphing algorithms to two input sounds to create a new one that has features of both – and create a whole universe of new sounds.

UNMIX::DRUMS: Boost Or Attenuate Drums In Mixed Music.

Boost or cut the drums in a mix or sample frequency dependently, or add potentially illegal amounts of punch to your drum stems.

ADAPTIVERB: Harmonic Tracking Resynthesis Reverb.

Arguably the most unique reverb, texture synthesizer and cross-filter available.

WORMHOLE: Otherworldly Audio Effects Processor.

High-quality multi-effects processing ranging from the sublime to the extreme. Creature/robot voices, sci-fi SFX and drones, or wide, shimmering, glassy ambient guitars with pitch-shifted tails? You got it!

Copy Protection

This software uses the latest PACE copy protection, which allows you to place your activation on your machine or on an iLok 2* (or newer; not included). You will need a free iLok.com account to use our software, even for the the demos – but you do not necessarily need the iLok 2 dongle, if your machine has internet access (activation of a system without internet connectivity requires an iLok 2 device). All required software is installed along with our plugins, but we generally recommend downloading the latest versions directly from iLok.com.

*Please note: the older, first generation (blue) iLok is not supported!

CPU Load

Please note: While they are highly optimized, our plug-ins use a LOT of CPU due to the complex nature of the magic they perform. Please use the free trial to evaluate whether your system has sufficient resources to utilize the software effectively! We recommend setting your playback buffer size to at least 512 or ideally 1024 samples for optimum performance.

As our plug-ins sport unique features not found in any other software, we highly recommend reading their manuals to ensure you get the most out of them!
