It’s very rare that a plug-in can recreate complete workflows in one tiny package. iZotope Dialogue Match is one of those things. Check out the video, this is a game changer.

Traditionally, the process of matching audio clips recorded in different environments or captured using different microphones required hours of EQ tweaking and reverb crafting – until now. With the ability to instantly learn and transfer reverb, EQ, and ambience content between audio files, Dialogue Match helps maintain a sense of space and atmosphere between your scenes and keep your audience in the moment.

New Sonnox Drum Gate

Sonnox Oxford Drum Gate is a completely new kind of smart gate with intelligent drum-hit detection algorithms. First, the Plug-In detects hits with tailor-made transient detection. Then, you simply decide which ones to keep. You can also re-level drum hits and even turn them into MIDI notes. We had a chance to have a quick check of the beta version recently and it’s truly remarkable, it can save lots of time and nerves, definitely worth a try!

Fearures:

– Precise transient detection and intelligent drum-type matching to effortlessly separate the hits you want to keep from the spill you don’t.

– Create custom drum profiles to isolate unusual drum types or fix the occasional kick, snare, or tom mismatch.

– Decay curve which adapts to the velocity of each drum hit, giving you consistent spill reduction on dynamic performances.

– Spectral decay editor lets you preserve the resonance, ring, or rattle of each drum hit while quickly clamping down on the spill.

– The leveller’s dual target and amount controls let you improve level consistency without losing the contrast between loud hits and soft ghost notes.

– Real-time MIDI output and MIDI file capture, for accurately triggering drum samples.
