Voxengo Soniformer version 3.2 update is now available for download.  Soniformer is a spectral mastering dynamics processor plug-in for professional music production applications, available in AudioUnit and VST plugin formats, for Mac OS X (v.10.4.11 and later) and Windows (32-bit and 64-bit) computers.

This update includes the following changes:

  • Oversampling filter type "Min-phase/Lin-phase" switch added.
  • Global "Auto Oversampling Level" 1X (off) option added.
  • Graphics drawing performance improved.
  • Level meter's "density mode" look improved.
  • Control point on underlay envelope deletion bug fixed.
  • Control surface crosshair option added (can be switched off in the global options).

Every parameter in Soniformer is defined by means of a graphic envelope which is freely-modifiable and which may contain unlimited number of control points.  Beside usual threshold, attack, release and compression/expander ratio parameters Soniformer offers you control over “stereo width” and “panning” parameters making Soniformer an effective tool for stereo field adjustments.

Soniformer features:

  • 32-band dynamics processor
  • Envelope-driven parameters
  • 32-band “analog” spectrum analyzer
  • Stereo balance and correlation meters
  • Multi-band panning
  • Narrow-band sweeping
  • Stereo and multi-channel processing
  • Internal channel routing
  • Channel grouping
  • Mid/side processing
  • Up to 8x oversampling
  • 64-bit floating point processing
  • Preset manager
  • Undo/redo history
  • A/B comparisons
  • Contextual hint messages
  • All sample rates support
  • 11 ms compensated processing latency

Soniformer is available for purchase on-line for USD 109.95.  Demo version of Voxengo Soniformer and other pro audio plug-ins can be downloaded at the Voxengo web site: https://www.voxengo.com/product/soniformer/


Some of us asked for a range feature, but the one you implemented, though useful, is not exactly what I had in mind.  It would be great to have a 'range' feature that defines a db range of operation - i.e. the dynamic action only takes place betwen x - y.  A good example is upward expansion: a range set to -35dB FS to -15dB would only expand signals within that range.  Therefore, the noise floor would not be risen by the expansion (if it is below -35dB FS), but the low - mid level signals would be brought up.

The way it is set up now, an upward expansion configuration would raise everything below the threshold, including the noise floor.

Same with compression - it would be great to only compress a certain dB range, like -18dB FS to -8dB FS (leaving a limiter to deal with the peaks)..

Regardless, you still make some of the best plugins in the industry, Aleksy!

Thanks

Your idea about the "working range" may be a bit complex and unintuitive to operate.  It's like having two threshold envelopes.

I suggest you to engage the "Downward mode" if you want to do expansion and reduce the noise floor.

Ah, yes!  A little like the good old Neodynium compressor, originally developed by Elemental Audio Systems.  I love that one!

Unfortunately, some time after EAS was acquired by RNDigital Labs, both the acquirer and the compressor vanished from the market. (Hint, Aleksey! ;))


Hello, might you put a zoom to edit better the lines of the compressor multiband?

goodbye and thanks

PD: sorry my english is very bad


No, zoom-in function isn't planned, because it is simply unnecessary, because Soniformer has only 32 spectral bands - there is little sense in a better horizontal line resolution while vertical resolution is adequate already.  You may also hold the Shift key for a finer movements.

Hello ok thank you, but do I believe that you might implement this option, to visualize better the graph?: " wide meters and stats " of the SPAN

Goodbye and thanks


Sorry, but I do not understand what do you mean by "visualize better the graph".  As I've replied already, having only 32 spectral bands, zooming in won't give you any benefit.

I do not complain for the number of bands, I refer that if you implement the option of " hide meters " of SPAN, would meet bigger the graph, it would turn out to be to my myself more comfortable, not if he understands me .... only it was a suggestion....

Does he understand me?


If you want to hide the meters, you can use the "Display=Off" option.
