Voxengo is very happy to announce the release of its newest plug-in: Drumformer.  Drumformer is a multiband drum and master track dynamics processing plug-in for professional music and audio production applications.  Drumformer was designed to be a comprehensive solution for the broadest range of sound processing tasks, allowing you to easily implement almost any dynamics processing idea you may have.  Drumformer is available in AudioUnit and VST plug-in formats (including native 64-bit support), for Mac OS X (v10.5 and later), and Windows computers.

Drumformer can operate in broadband, 2-band and 3-band modes, with each band having compressor-expander and saturation modules.  The sound of the compressor can be defined as “gluey with a ping”, because it instantly creates a “tight and glued together” sound while masterfully emphasizing the transients.  The saturation module offers you a choice between six saturation modes, each having a smooth sound and differing harmonic content.

Drumformer features a precise gate module with a round sound and multifaceted controls that is useful when you are processing a multi-tracked drum kit.  The built-in parametric equalizer with its spectrum analyzer will also come in handy.  The “Clipper” module which is a part of the plug-in allows you to get artistic master output clipping effects.

Drumformer will positively enhance your professional toolset and may help you produce even better recordings faster.

Drumformer features:

  • Broadband, 2- and 3-band operation
  • 3-band compressor/expander
  • 3-band saturation module with 6 modes
  • Broadband gate module
  • Parametric equalizer
  • Output clipper module
  • External side-chain capability
  • Real-time FFT spectrum analyzer
  • Stereo and multi-channel processing
  • Internal channel routing

  • 64-bit floating point processing
  • Preset manager

WOW!!!  I am really excited for this.  Will download soon.  I'm sure it will be great.  Thanks, Aleksey...

I want to inform you that the MAC version is not working good!

– The GUI (AU) is partially crippled, no buttons and knobs visible at all.

– The AU gets validated in Logic 9 but not in Logic 8.

– The VST is completely useless, only a black window visible.

Tested on a MAC Leopard 10.5.8 and on a Tiger MAC

in different DAW's and various Audio Editors.

I hope my report helps to improve your product.

Thank you!

Sorry for the issue.  This issue probably applies to Mac OS X 10.5 only - we will be testing it more thoroughly and if possible, fix the issue.

We may need to increase the minimum version requirement since Mac OS X was not very consistent for a developer when going from 10.5 to 10.6.  The plug-in works fine in Mac OS X 10.6.

INTERESTING.  I love playing with dynamics.

It's not happening on Mac OS X 10.5 only – but also on Mac OS X 10.4.11.

Bad fault from the developers side to code a Plug-In only for the newest Operation Systems!

Who would ever buy a product which forces you to change your entire System?

Yes, the plug-in does not work on Mac OS X 10.4.11 either.  This is not our fault - it is Apple who does not code their APIs right, passing all user-related "last mile" compatibility stresses to the developers.  For example, Windows has no such issue - the plug-ins work on XP, XP 64, Vista, 7 - that's quite a long 100% backwards compatibility timeline.

We will try to debug the issue and if possible, we will release an update that addresses this incompatibility.
