4 Tools 4 Mastering

KeyToSound have announced the immediate availability of The Production Pack, a collection of four audio mastering tools:
  • The Essential Compressor
  • The Dynamic EQ
  • The Precision EQ
  • The Vintage EQ
Here's the lowdown in KeyToSound's own words...
The Essential Compressor is an extremely versatile and transparent compressor, designed for the discerning engineer who does not want any coloration or character added to the signal. The Essential Compressor lends itself perfectly for instruments ranging from classical instruments to rock bass and drums. Features:
  • 64 bit
  • responsive VU level indicator for input and output signal
  • A/B preset switching capable of automated setting changes
  • MIDI CC learn
  • +/- 24db headroom
The Precision EQ is your next go to EQ for precise equalization. Featuring a FFT representation of either the input or output signal, you can see your equalization results, even if your ears deceive you.
  • 64 bit precision
  • 7 bands with Gain, Frequency, and "Q" settings
  • 7 different filter types per band
  • graphical drag and drop curve setting
  • global output metering
The Vintage EQ gets its name from the warmth and character you hear when passing a signal through this EQ. Any seasoned mastering or recording engineer will know that when using a digital EQ, such as the Precision EQ, the frequency reponse appraches 0dB as the signal frequency approaches the Nyquist frequency. The Vintage EQ does the opposite.
A very important element to this powerful EQ is that unlike it's competitors, the Vintage EQ does not use oversampling, since that would require downsampling and pre-filtering (to avoid aliasing) which in turn would ruin the sound.
  • FFT display of incoming and outgoing signal - 64 bit precision
  • 7 bands with Gain, Frequency, and "Q" settings
  • 7 different filter types per band
  • graphical drag and drop curve setting
  • global output metering
The Dynamic EQ is a 64 bit, zero latency signal processor that combines the functions of a compressor with the results of an equalizer. The combination of these features gives the Dynamic EQ an advantage over "static" equalizers in that it can respond in real time to signal input, applying equalization when it is needed, rather than all the time. Features:
  • 4 bands with solo feature and individual metering
  • threshold, ratio, attack, and release settings per band
  • Frequency, bandwidth, and gain settings per band
  • Global metering
  • +12db gain output
  • A/B setting switching
  • MIDI CC learn
Pricing and Availability:
Production Pack: $179.00
Essential Compressor: $39.99
Dynamic EQ: $79.99
Precision EQ: $59.99
Vintage EQ: $59.99
