Program Compressor for SawStudio
The single-band Program Compressor is finally ready for public consumption! Painstakingly designed to actually sound like an analog compressor, it also includes some nifty sidechain EQing options. Although designed for stereo program material, it's certainly useful for individual tracks as well.
Metronome for SawStudio, now with MIDI Clock/SPP output
The SawStudio Metronome has been updated, adding MIDI Clock output. Combined with MIDI Yoke (or another similar program), this allows for very accurate synchronization between SawStudio and Reason, Orion (Platinum Edition), Ableton Live, or any number of other programs. Best of all, it's free.
PanMaster 4000 for SawStudio
The PanMaster 4000 is a fully automated, multiple LFO waveform, variable intensity, variable speed AutoPan and Tremolo. The LFO time can be set using speed (in Hertz), time (in Seconds or Millseconds), using a TAP Control, OR by using Studio's current tempo.
Once again, the real fun of this plug-in comes courtesy of SawStudio's automation. I've been over-using the "slowing down tremolo" effect myself, lately :)
Also, the Autopan is truly equal energy, meaning if you pan something in a mix, and that mix is reduced to mono, the autopanned signal does not pump.
Cue Sheet Generator for SAW (revised)
Version 1.7 of the Cue Sheet Generator is here, with some useful enhancements. Cue Sheet Generator greatly simplifies the creation of CDs within the SAW environment. It features a graphical interface for the placement of CD Track and Index Markers, and includes keyboard shortcuts that work directly from the SAW MultiTrack window to greatly accelerate the placement of IDs. CD Indexes show up directly on the SAW MultiTrack display, for graphical feedback of where you're placing your IDs. IDs can also be placed and removed "on the fly."
Also included is full PQ code support -- such as CD Catalog Number, ISRC Numbers, and all CD-Text fields (for the overall CD, and for individual tracks).
Once your CD is laid out in Cue Sheet Generator, it will generate a .cue file and it's associated WAV files in the location of your choosing, completely automatically. The Cue File can then be automatically opened in the CD-Burning application of your choice, and very quickly burned to disc.
Hi-Resolution Equaliser for DirectX is here!
The JMS Hi-Resolution Equaliser has been so well received in it's SAW Native version that we couldn't help but port it to DirectX so that others may take advantage of it's extremely good sounding, analog-esque smoothness. Not only does it sound fantastic, it's been coded in assembly language for blazing speed. On a modern system, you should be able to run many, many channels of this top-notch EQ without difficulty. The EQ's algorithm took a very long time to develop, but it was worth it. Download the fully functional, time limited demo to hear for yourself.
The 'RC' in RCDelay stands for Really Complicated, or maybe Really Cool... or Rather Complex? In any case, don't let the name scare you. It's capable of creating some very cool effects -- everything from basic slapback to simulating an Echoplex's heads being moved in real time. And of course it's completely automated. Check it out, the demo is free.
Since it's release in September of 2001, our first commercial release, JMS Hi-Resolution Equaliser, has received a tremendous response. Designed for mastering, the Hi-Res EQ is the culmination of months of research into filter design and assembly language optimization techniques, delivering a full 64 bits of computational accuracy. It's got that "silky" API or Neve smoothness. Download the fully functional (time limited) demo; I think you'll agree the sonics speak for themselves.
