Audified Introduces DW Drum Enhancer

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.

Audified inValve Effects Plugin Now on Sale

Audified EffectsThe rise of digital audio production tools has forever changed the landscape of the medium. It might be fun to wax nostalgic over the recording studios of the past, with their rooms of big, bulky gear that looked really cool on photographs inside of a record sleeve. But for all their glory, those studios weren’t accessible to most. You had to be well connected and flush with cash to gain entrance. And while today it’s easier than ever to produce high quality audio with nothing more than a laptop, one thing that many producers long for is that “warm valve” tone that came naturally with all of that big, bulky gear.

Audio engineering companies have worked for decades to try and replicate the richness of valve-based gear using only software algorithms. A recent entrant to this arena is Audified with its inValve Effects plugin. This plugin includes:

  • inValve Preamp: A precise software emulation of a tube amplifier. Adds warmth and smoothness you’ll need for analog-sounding mixes.
  • inValve Compressor: Emulation of a standard analog tube-based compressor.
  • inValve Equalizer: A four-band parametric equalizer with additional hi-pass and lo-pass filters.

The inValve Effects plugin can be used natively on Windows and macOS-based DAWs that run AAX, AU, or VST plugins. inValve Effects normally retails for $49 but the plugin is on sale for a limited time for $19.
