Wave Rider v3 From Quiet Arts £69 - 25% off
Wave Rider is an RTAS & AAX plugin. It is a virtual fader controller utility that applies intelligent volume adjustments to the Pro Tools faders to maintain consistent levels, and perform ducking, gating, and automatic mixing duties. It has a vast use in audio post production as well as music recordings. Now available for both Mac and Windows. Pro Tools 7 to 11
Wave Rider first became publicly available for Pro Tools users back in March 2009. It’s a unique and innovative RTAS/AAX plugin that detects audio signal levels on the inserted channel, and applies Pro Tools fader movements as needed. Since its release, it evolved into a much improved tool thanks to user feedback.

Wave Arts FinalPlug AAX Native & DSP Plug-in 30% Off
FinalPlug is a professional peak limiter/volume maximiser with extensive bit depth truncation and dither options, making it ideally suited for a final mix. Tame the peaks a bit, or really squeeze all the volume you can out of it.
The FinalPlug interface could hardly be simpler. Select a desired output ceiling level, say -0.1 dB, and then adjust the threshold level. As you decrease the threshold you increase the volume.
The peak limiter section works by looking ahead 1.5 milliseconds. When a input peak is detected that will exceed the desired output ceiling, the gain is quickly ducked to let the peak pass, then the gain is restored relatively slowly according to the release time control. During rapidly changing program material with frequent peaks, a faster release time will achieve better results. During slowly changing material, slower release times prevent excessive modulation distortion. FinalPlug’s auto release feature analyses the input signal to determine peakiness, and selects the optimum release time for the program material.
The truncate/dither section is usually used for CD mastering, where truncation to 16 bits can create audible quantisation distortion. By adding special dither noise, the quantisation distortion can be eliminated, and the dither noise can be spectrally shaped to move it to frequency ranges where it is less audible. FinalPlug contains a comprehensive noise shaping section which reproduces a variety of commonly used noise shapes.
In order to maximize your DSP instance counts, FinalPlug AAXDSP comes with two configurations. The full configuration provides all features, while the Limit configuration provides just the limiter section. At 48 kHz, you can run 4 stereo instances of the full configuration, and 17 stereo instances of the Limit only configuration.
