Sidechain Compressor gets a new manual Gain control, which can either be used independently for manual gain make-up, or to fine tune output levels when used with Auto Gain. db audioware say that this rounds out the Compressor's feature set and greatly improves its operation as a standard insert effect.
Both Sidechain Compressor and Sidechain Gate get enhanced external side-chain capability. It is now possible to side-chain multiple "receive" plug-ins from a single "send" plug-in, opening the way to one-to-many-tracks as well as one-to-one-track side-chain applications.
Finally, the noise bursts in the demo versions of both plug-ins have been reduced in repetition and volume so as to be less intrusive to potential users trying them out.
