Audified develops software applications, software effects and hardware processors for musicians, audio engineers and installed audio. Audified has introduced the DW Drum Enhancer “the only drum processor you’ll ever need”. It is an all-in-one drum processing tool designed and tuned by DW recording engineers.
The DW Drum Enhancer is not just one effect. It has several EQs and compressors inside. By dialing the drum type the plug-in automatically chooses appropriate gate and compressor model and sets the 3-band EQ’s frequencies to ideal values. Five types of valve saturation will give your drum tracks the real-life feel.
Usually, you would need several plug-ins to gate, compress and EQ your drums as you desire. It’s hard to find the right match of the processors, and you have to care about levels between the plug-ins. You also have to tune your sound in several windows at the same time.
With DW Drum Enhancer, all these troubles are gone. One click sets up your system and the only thing you have to care about is the fine tuning and gentle saturation of your sound. You save time and insert slots and CPU power.
The fastest way to get to the desired drum sound is to use the DWDE presets. Those were carefully prepared in DW studios by professionals that specialize in drum recording on a daily basis.
The intelligent and tweakable Gate helps to remove unwanted signal from the recorded material. The compressor type, knee and times depend on the drum type selection. The chance to use parallel compression gives you endless sonic options.
The DWDE EQ was precicely designed by the DW engineers for the perfect EQ sweet spots. The knob’s frequencies, Q’s and high/low pass behavior depends on the drum type you dial in the selector section. The Pre and Post positions are standard.
