Elevate uses intelligent, adaptive technology that responds in real time to your music 04/10/17
Newfangled Audio and Eventide have released Elevate, which they describe as the most advanced mastering plug-in ever created. They say that this unique multi-band limiter, human-ear EQ and powerful audio maximizer will increase the loudness of your mix while maintaining or improving its dynamic perception. A spokesperson told us, "Elevate uses intelligent, adaptive technology that responds in real time to your music; creating not only the loudest, but the best sounding master." Features
Presets by APS Mastering, Matt Lange, Jeremy Lubsey, Eric Beam, ROCAsound, Chris Tabron and John McCaig.
Automatically adapts the attack, release and look-ahead parameters for each filter band to greatly reduce "pumping" and breathing artifacts and perceived distortion.
Preserves or emphasizes fast transients to avoid squashing your mix.
Manipulates transients across the critical bands to preserve the attacks from kick drums, snares and cymbals, without affecting the entire mix.
Uses linear phase auditory filters -- based on the Mel Scale -- to manipulate the audio in a way that is natural to your inner ear.
Solo the output of one band (or a number of bands) to hone in on problem frequencies, tweak transients or alter gain.
