World Cup Horn Suppressor – Zynaptiq’s A.I. Solution to Futbol Noise

World Cup Horn Suppressor – Zynaptiq’s A.I. Solution to Futbol Noise The World Cup may have just ended but the excitement is only just beginning for the NEXT World Cup in 2022. Fortunately for us, this time around fans may have noticed various broadcasts’ signals sounding relatively clean and free of those blaring horns (commonly referred to as Vuvuzelas or compressor horns) that were so prominent in 2010 and 2014. This is all thanks to an impressive plugin developed by Zynaptiq called simply, “World Cup Horn Suppressor”. The technology built within the plugin is capable of suppressing the honking sound of compressor horns in REAL TIME while leaving stadium ambiance and commentary largely unaffected. Zynaptiq utilized a technique called source signal separation (otherwise known as de-mixing) to accomplish this balance in the broadcast audio signal. The coolest part of this process is that artificial intelligence is behind the powerful effect of demixing the audio signals, …

ADHD – Free Tube Leveling Amp Plugin

ADHD – Free Tube Leveling Amp Plugin Audio Tools recently announced the release of their plugin ADHD, an emulation of hardware leveling tube amps, similar to the classic LA-2A Leveling Amplifier. Leveling amplifiers are typically associated with subtle compression for adding flavor and the ADHD stays true to form, it works especially well with a light touch. What sets this plugin apart from other leveling amplifier emulations? ADHD has an unusual amount of knobs for compressors of this type which gives you much more control over your compression parameters. On the interface, you will notice the classic VU meter smack dab in the middle of the plugin, next you may notice the typical two knobs for Gain and Peak Reduction. The developers of this plugin went the extra mile though and gave us controls for Attack, Release, Ratio, and Dry/Wet. These controls make it a much more flexible tool than the …

The Compressors can produce a clean modern sound or when in “vintage mode” will output signals like a CLA-2A tube compressor; the Exciter offers harmonic shaping with 3 XY selectors that each push the sound towards Retro/Warm/Tape/Tube; the Transient Shaper is an awesome addition to have even if you already have one, and is extremely responsive from subtle levels up to when the effect is increased. Each of these modules allows for multi-band processing and deliver sound that stands up to any other high-end plugin on the market, the fact that you get all of them together at such a low price should be enough to pique your interest.
