noveltech VOCAL ENHANCER goes native with Plugin Alliance!
“I think the VOCAL ENHANCERTM is an entirely new tool — in many cases better than a standard equaliser — to enhance the clarity and presence of vocals and help them in mixing, without making them sound harsh or edgy. Of course, you can go too far with this, as with any tool, but the palette allows for anything from subtle to aggressive.”
- Bob Katz (Digital Domain Mastering, USA)
WILMINGTON, USA: American pro audio plug-in company Plugin Alliance LLC is pleased to announce availability of noveltech VOCAL ENHANCER, an all-new native version of Alliance partner company noveltech Audio’s unique vocal processing plug-in, as of February 13…
noveltech VOCAL ENHANCER gives vocal recordings unprecedented clarity and crispness without unwanted side effects, thanks to Finnish high-quality audio technologies developer noveltech Audio’s patented IAF (Intelligent Adaptive Filtering) technology that lies at its very core. Unlike conventional enhancers, it dynamically boosts the ‘desired’ characteristics in audio recordings, rather than statically boosting set frequencies, like an EQ, or artificially adding harmonics. However, since the algorithm involved constantly adapts itself to the source material, the results still sound natural when applying high amounts of processing — perfect for making vocals and a whole lot more besides simply sound a whole lot better!
Thanks to that innovative IAF technology, noveltech VOCAL ENHANCER really couldn’t be simpler to use, requiring only two user parameters for basic operation (FOCUS FREQUENCY and ENHANCEMENT) with an additional two-band filter section for fine-tuning purposes — perhaps not quite a make-it-sound-better button, but not far off!
So who better, then, to truly summarise the audio advantages of the noveltech VOCAL ENHANCER plug-in than the brains behind IAF — namely, noveltech Audio’s Dr Ismo Kauppinen: “The IAF technology allows us to take the rocket science out of vocal processing. Even less experienced users will instantly achieve high- end results. And the ability to increase the material’s perceived definition is a feature previously unavailable on any sound processing tool!”
Technology in general, of course, stands still for no one, so — having previously been exclusive to TC Electronic’s now-discontinued proprietary PowerCore platform — now it’s possible to implement this tailored technology to run natively on today’s powerful PC and Mac computers; and, thanks to Plugin Alliance, the noveltech VOCAL ENHANCER plug-in is available for a whole host of popular professional audio formats, including AU, AAX, RTAS, TDM, VENUE, VST. Ladies and gentlemen, choose your plug-in…
Available in 64- and 32-bit versions, noveltech VOCAL ENHANCER can be purchased and downloaded (in all Mac OS X and Windows formats — AU, AAX, RTAS, TDM, VENUE, VST 2.4, and VST 3) directly from Plugin Alliance for $199.00 USD here: https://plugin-alliance.com/en/plugins/detail/noveltech_vocal_enhancer.html
(Alternatively, customers can conveniently purchase any Plugin Alliance plug-in when walking into any Waves VSSD system-enabled store.)
