Exponential Audio Reveal Their New Product Excalibur - A Multi-Effects Plug-in

Over recent weeks the team at Exponential Audio have been teasing us about a new product and asking what we think it might be or what we would like it to be

Excalibur Is Here

Today they have ended the speculation and announced that their latest plug-in is an multi-effects unit called Excalibur.

In chatting to the Exponential team they have told us that during development their testers and previewers have compared Excalibur to many classic studio effects units, but why don’t you decide which ones when you hear it? They love the idea of emulation, but they wanted to take that and build on it, adding all the things you could have never have done with the original hardware units. Trusted industry professionals who have previewed Excalibur told us….

  • An audio processing Swiss Army knife.
  • Multi effects box of days past.
  • The most extensive Multi-FX, all- in-one plug-in available.
  • A Sound designers multi-FX unit.

What Does Excalibur Do?

When Will Excalibur Be Available?

Excalibur will be available in Spring 2015. For now, rest assured that Excalibur is in the hands of testers who have already used it in music and television projects.

How much Does Excalibur Cost?

$199 but watch out for special introductory pricing.

Realtime and AudioSuite Processing In Pro Tools

Russ shows the difference between Realtime and AudioSuite plug-ins in Pro Tools.

In the Pro Tools reference guide AudioSuite processing is described in this way.

AudioSuite plug-ins are used to render processing and modify audio files on disk. AudioSuite pro- cessing applies non-real-time, or rendered, audio processing to selected audio clips in your

Pro Tools session. Depending on how you config- ure an AudioSuite plug-in, it will either alter the original source audio file or create an entirely new audio source file. 

Sometimes Realtime processing will be of benefit and at other times AudioSuite plug-in processing will be more suitable. Russ outlines the benefits of using one or the other.
