Our friends at Quiet Art have announced their latest plug-in Defaulter, a Pro Tools clip gain normalizing plug-in. Quiet Art already make the popular Wave Rider plug-in. Defaulter is compatible with both ProTools 10 & 11.
Quiet Arts say;
Defaulter is the Pro Tools clip gain normalizing plugin. It is a perfect companion for WaveRider, and an excellent addition to any collection of gain staging plugins.
Clip gain is the best thing Pro Tools adopted in recent years. Now, you have a tool to help you get the most out of it.
Defaulter analyzes the clip and applies clip gain adjustments to bring it up or down to meet your specified peak level. It ignores clips with levels below the user set threshold.

If you want to try out the new Quiet Art Defaulter plug-in, there is a demo download on their web site.
Andre Zeugner from Adam Audio has been in touch to tell us that German entrepreneurs with the CWM holding company on December 11th, 2014 have acquired ownership of ADAM Professional Audio . As we reported earlier, ADAM Professional Audio ran into difficulties with capitial funding after taking on too many projects and products.
The new owners have already gone on record that their goal is to invest in ADAM Audio and bring production back up to normal as well as to invest in new products which will strengthen ADAM Audio’s already excellent market position.
A representative of the new shareholder, Sebastian Canzlertold us….
ADAM Audio is known worldwide in the pro audio industry for its superb speakers. Due to the high precision and quality of the products as well as the large technical expertise of its employees, the company has become very quickly a leading supplier of professional audio monitors. All of this provides a very good basis for further growth, which we strive for together with the existing team.
Sven Schmöle, Managing Director of ADAM Audio added…
With CWM we have a partner on our site that supports our passion for innovation and helps us realize our full potential. Our task now is to resume production as soon as possible in order to supply our customers with products again.

Another Pro Tools quick tip, this one is the cool way that Pro Tools HD users can convert volume automation to clip gain and vice versa.
Some people are not aware of this feature but it has several uses including;
- You may want to commit your automation to the track as clip gain and then render it to the audio track for exporting as a completed audio track.
- You may have a track with a lot of clip gain changes written to it and may want to convert that to volume automation instead, leaving the original audio unaffected.
Here’s how to do it.
In their next daily deal Waves are offering their SoundShifter plug-in for the next day or so they are offering SoundShiffter for $49 instead of $149.
What Is SoundShifter?
SoundShifter is a pitch-shifting and time-shifting processor. It enables you to change keys, tempos, durations, and manipulate the time-pitch continuum with accuracy and clarity. For tonal transformation and transposition, SoundShifter is well worth a look especially at this price. It has Parametric, Graphic, and Real-time components with punchy, smooth, transient, and sync modes, with time, tempo, bars, samples, SMPTE, feet & frames, pitch, interval, and frequency controls.
You only have a short period of time to take advantage of this deal so check it out here.

Boz Digital Labs are fast becoming well known for good quality, low cost plug-ins. They make some great plug-ins at good process and have a really nice ‘small-developer’ attitude.
Eli Krantzberg has just done an extended review, including their cool new A/B sound examples over at our sister site Logic Pro Expert. Eli writes;
2014 is a great year to be a DAW owner. New plug-ins of all sorts keep coming fast and furious. Some are hardware emulations, some are hybrids using existing technology to enhance older paradigms, while some are completely new and unique. And the prices are lower than ever. Enter Boz Digital Labs; one of the great new crop of up and coming plug-in developers. They have just released a new plug-in called +10dB, a faithful recreation of the rare and sought after Compex Vocal Stressor. This unit has a unique sonic signature and vibe to it; and has not already been emulated to death by every other plug-in developer. And no, it is not just another hardware channel strip emulation. With the absence of physical hardware restraints, Boz Digital Labs have gone beyond simple imitation. The plug-in comes in three flavours. Dynamics section only, Equaliser only, or the bundle that combines them together into a single channel strip. Here I’ll take a look at the bundle version.
It’s a great review and well worth a read, check it the Boz Digital Labs +10dB review over at Logic Pro Expert
