Description: Some entries are almost perfect. Nearly. Desired perfection can be achieved with Autoformer. A tool that can act almost imperceptibly, and can also add excellent coloring to your tracks. Autoformer combines an analogue, such as a preamplifier, with an automatic volume function and a soft compressor. This is the right tool for your vocals or voice overs. Improves the performance of drummers or bassists.
Autoformer is the perfect companion for mixing both bass and double bass. It is indispensable for creating vocal or voice-over tracks, but it can also be used to balance drum recordings.
Inspired by the Front DAW plugin, the BR / US / GE buttons in the preamp section represent three types of analog circuits. BR represents the classic British consoles, US – for the legendary powerful American mode, and switching to GE will give you the velvet sound of a colorful vintage German lamp console.
Section “Balancer” is intended to correct performance errors and loss of volume. His work will make you feel that these artifacts never existed. The SEER parameter determines the lead signal to decide if your material needs volume control.
Turn on the fast modern compressor to calm the dynamics of your track without changing the spectral nature of your signal. It does not stain the signal. Just running out.
Thanks to separate bypass switches in each section, if you wish, you can use any part as a separate effect. Use only the automatic volume control function or only the pre-amplifier in combination with the compressor. Do exactly what you think is necessary.
Five LED indicators give you an excellent overview of what is happening in the Autoformer signal circuit. Each snapshot of the plugin’s state can be monitored so that your tracks are completely under control.
The photorealistic graphical user interface of the plugin gives you the feeling that you are touching real equipment. You can always drag the arrow in the lower right corner to resize it — reduce it to save valuable screen space, or enlarge it to make it easier to use.
The plugin provides the maximum sound quality you can get. It uses internal 64-bit audio processing and can handle any sample rate. 192 kHz or even higher.
The smart way this plugin controls bypass ensures that you don’t get any clicks or noise when automating a parameter.
