HoRNet AnalogStage VST VST3 AU RTAS AAX v1.1.1 OSX/WiN RETAiL
HoRNet AnalogStage emulates those sound characteristics usually associated with analog gear (saturation, hiss, non linear frequency response, etc.) and can be used to bring to your mix some analog console flavor if used on every channel or buss.

AnalogStage simulates the response of three different types of analog technology: operational amplifiers (the cleanest and more modern technology), transistor (the discrete transistor designs were popular in the 70s and have some fat saturation) and tube (the dynamic and smooth saturation of the past). Every one of the three different type of emulation can be used inside the same project but for convenience you can create up to eight group of instances so that any change to the emulation type, age, hiss switch and saturation switch is applied to every plugin belonging to the group.

AnalogStage also provide a stereo VU meter calibrated to -18dBFS to help you gain stage the plugin and to help you even more we added our latest auto gain technology.

We also added an "age” slider that can make your virtual console older simulating the effect of drying condensers, this affect both the saturation amount and the frequency response.

Features:
- Three different types of emulation: op.amp., transistor and tube.
- Instances can be grouped so a parameter change is applied to the whole group.
- Age control simulates the aging of the analog device changing saturation and frequency response.
- Adjustable input gain from -18dB to +18dB.
- Stereo VU meter calibrated to -18 dBFS.
- Adjustable automatic gain technology.
- Separate saturation and hiss controls.
- Analog component tolerance emulation.
- Mac OS X (>=10.5 intel only) and Windows support.
- 64-bit compatibility both on Mac and Windows.

Soft / VST Instruments 25-07-2016
Spikes is a transient processor, thanks to it’s intelligent auto settings you need just one knob to manipulate the sound, but if you want to tweak it every control is there at your fingertips.

Working with audio often happens that you need to manipulate peaks and body of the signal, sure you have compressors at your disposal but a compressor needs a fixed threshold to work, a plugin like HoRNet Spikes on the other hand uses a relative threshold so you don’t have to worry about the level of the signal.

The fast peak of a snare or an acoustic guitar is detected using the difference of two envelopes, one with fast attack and the other with slow attack, the resulting signal represents the peak over time. The detected control signal is then applied to a gain stage that reduces or increases the audio level according to the setting of the "spike level” control.

With this simple logic you can change the intensity of every peak relatively to the body level and though increase them to make the sound more "snappy” or decrease them to make it more "full”

The detector logic is the core of the algorithm and while the default settings work most of the times, HoRNet Spikes provides controls for adjusting the "length” of the detected peak and the release of the detector making the plugin react faster or slower to sudden level changes, we added an auto release function that snaps to the song tempo and it’s calibrated to make the most natural sound. Right in front of the detector we placed a 12dB/oct high pass filter that you can use to reduce the weight of low frequencies (such the body of a kick drum or the very low frequencies of a bass guitar) in the detector algorithm.
HoRNet Multicomp Plus VST VST3 AU RTAS AAX v1.2.0 OSX WIN RETAiL HoRNet Multicomp Plus VST VST3 AU RTAS AAX v1.2.0 OSX WIN RETAiL
Soft / VST Instruments 22-07-2016
HoRNet Multicomp Plus is a very high quality and versatile plugin compressor. It’s built on the foundation of the original Multicomp and features three compressor models (VCA, OPTO and FET) and an expander (based on the VCA model).

Multicomp Plus is perfect for every mixing need providing three compression colors, from the dry VCA to the very fat FET model, if you need analog warmth Multicomp Plus provides a different emulation for every model.

You don’t have to worry about gain staging thanks to the internal makeup gain algorithm and the auto input and output gain adjustment.

If you don’t like the hiss that comes with analog you can turn it off, and with the "Analog” knob you can dial the right amount of saturation.

Each model can be fed with an external side-chain, and the side-chain has two filters, a high pass and a low pass, both filters are full range, working from 20 to 20000Hz.

HoRNet Multicomp Plus features the standard attack, release, ratio and threshold controls, but brings compression to a new level providing a waveform display with both input and output signal so that is easy to monitor the processing that is taking place. Like every other HoRNet dynamics processor Multicomp Plus has a "RealGR” gain reduction meter. The meter moves at the speed of audio so you can "see” how fast the gain reduction is being applied, but the meter also has a peak hold function so that the maximum reduction applied in the last 2 seconds is always in front of you. High quality processing is guaranteed by 2 or 4 times oversampling that drastically reduces the amount of aliasing distortion generated by the compression algorithm.

A handy dry / wet knob allows you to create parallel compression with ease, the level of the wet signal is kept at the right spot by the adaptive make up gain algorithm.
McDSP Analog Channel v6.1.0.8 WIN-AudioUTOPiA McDSP Analog Channel v6.1.0.8 WIN-AudioUTOPiA
Analog Channel emulates the sounds of high-end analog tape machines, tape, and channel amplifiers.
Analog Channel is 2 plug-ins:

AC101 – Emulates analog channel amplifier circuits
AC202 – Emulates analog tape machines

The AC101 configuration acts as a digital pre-amp allowing even excessive amounts of gain without digital distortion. A drive control determines where the audio "sits” in the saturation/compression region, and even the attack and release times of the distortion character are adjustable.

The AC202 configuration emulates analog tape machines. In addtiion to standard tape machine parameters such as bias, playback speed, and IEC1/2 equalization, AC202 offers controls well beyond the limits of the reel-world devices including adjustable low frequency roll off and head bump – independent of playback speed. The user can select from several playback head types, tape formulations, and even control the tape saturation recovery time.

Library of presets emulating analog mixing systems
Real-time display of saturation curves and calibrations
