Lustrous Plates - 7 Unique Plates & More
Liquid Sonics Lustrous Plates combines dynamic spectral capture with fusion synthesis to create the most stunning plate reverb plug-in you’ve ever heard! It features seven unique plates and the ability to manipulate them in ways that no other reverb plugin can. Everything Bundle members will add incredible depth and space to their mixes with Lustrous Plates!
Overloud TH-U - Amp Profiles In The Box
Overloud TH-U Slate Edition is one of the biggest additions ever to the Slate Everything Bundle. With TH-U, Everything Bundle members get over 100 modeled pieces, including 30+ guitar amps, 19 cabinet models, 33 effects modules and pedals, and 18 microphones. But perhaps the biggest feature of TH-U is R2M which stands for "Rig 2 Model". R2M allows Overloud engineers to reproduce the famous amp profiles from one of the most popular hardware amp profiler. This means that TH-U's Rig Player can recreate entire amp rigs including the nonlinear and dynamic response of the amplifier, the cabinet, the microphones, the mic preamp and room sound.
Slate Drum Gate
The noise gate is one of the most essential tools in the pro audio arsenal, but in is Slate Digital’s view that there has been virtually zero advancements in gate plug-ins over the past decade. Until now. Enter the Slate Gate Series featuring two unique Gate plug-ins. The first, which will be previewed at NAMM 2019, is the Drum Gate. With unique features such as advanced transient detection and a revolutionary de-bleeding algorithm, you’ll get clean and easy results on even the most horrific tracks!
John McBride’s Blackbird Studios in Nashville, Tennessee is known for having one of the world’s largest collections of recording gear, including 1,400 vintage and modern microphones. Recently, McBride personally hand-picked the five very best vintage tube mics for the Blackbird VMS expansion pack. This pack features the 47 that George Massenburg called “the finest 47 I’ve ever heard,” as well as a 251 serial #584, which has previously been reserved exclusively for John’s wife, recording artist Martina McBride. With the Blackbird VMS Expansion pack, VMS users will gain instant access to the exact tone of five of the very best vintage tube mics in the world!
