With the expansion of Soundtoys 5, the complete spectrum of SoundToys audio effects has been brought together into one easy-to-use collection. This plug-in set includes all of the Soundtoys effects.
Decapitator, Radiator, and Devil-Loc add saturation, compression, and distorting effects. EchoBoy and PrimalTap can simulate echo and delay hardware and offer a virtual history of that technology. Little AlterBoy can transform your vocals, if you’re interested. Similar to the conventional studio techniques of chorus and widening, Crystallizer and MicroShift may be used to recreate studio effects like these. There are three kinds of rhythmic effects in PanMan, Tremolator, and FilterFreak. All of these instruments have percussive effects that sync to the beat.
All of these component aspects are widely used tools that have been tested and confirmed by a wide range of professionals in music, sound design, and mixing. However, all of them are assembled into the new Soundtoys Effect Rack, and they are, indeed, the ultimate effects collection.
Soundtoys 5 revolves around the new Soundtoys Effect Rack, which is the core of the app. By converting tried-and-true individual plug-ins into a nearly endless creative multi-effects system, it gives this tried-and-true collection of strong plug-ins a fresh start.
The Effect Rack is particularly well-suited for quickly constructing your own unique effect chains and establishing your own unique sound. And after you’ve built the right effect combination, you can use the Rack’s global settings to treat the complete rack as a single plug-in.
Compress the rhythmic effects to a single pace, or allow them to freely run. Make fine adjustments to the input and output levels, and then use the global mix control to blend your effect in with the dry signal. The next step is to explore with the powerful new Recycle control. The result of connecting the output of the rack back into the input is that you may use the system to generate your own modulated reverbs, convoluted delays, and other creative ambient effects that would typically need more intricate routing in most DAWs.
By utilizing the Effect Rack, Soundtoys has implemented a new system that allows all of the separate effects to be combined into a single plug-in and enhances productivity by presenting a full customized effect processing chain all at once. It’s much easier to work with more than one plug-in window since you won’t have to juggle plug-in windows to update settings, add new effects, or modify their routing. With the Effect Rack, you can keep everything at your fingertips.
It is possible to explore a number of carefully-crafted presets to discover your preferred starting point. Either design, save, and remember all of your favorite Soundtoys effects as one self-contained plug-in, or rapidly design, store, and recall a mixture of your favorite Soundtoys effects.
With USB-based authorisation, you’ll be able to free up valuable USB ports for audio interfaces and MIDI controllers. Studios pros may still use Soundtoys 5 even if they are using an iLok USB key to control all of their plug-in licensing. All of the Soundtoys 5 plug-ins are activated by default. Also, consider getting one for your home computer and a second for your personal computer, laptop, or other device.
To access circuit-level settings for a device’s special effects, just slide open the effect’s Tweak panel. In addition, you are also able to construct your own unique modulation patterns.
With many Soundtoys effects, the Tweak Panels include additional functions that are accessed further inside the interface. To get access to more complex settings for a plug-in, such the ability to pick your own saturation style, fine-tuning of an effect’s groove, or a variety of alternative delay algorithms, you must first click on the “expand” button. The modulation effects here give sophisticated shape and rhythm editors, enabling you to create intricate movements. In order to make sophisticated controls simpler to identify and use, Soundtoys has completely overhauled its Tweak panels. The result: an incrediblely adjustable toolbox of sound components that you’ll find yourself reaching for on every job. At the core of every modulation effect is an LFO (analogous to a vibrato in the analog world), which gives tremolos, phasers, panners, and sweeping filters their unique motion.
Not only is the library of LFO forms far more extensive than ordinary modulation effects, but it also has curves based on classic modulation effects, amps, and instruments as well as more abstract shapes. The Shape Editor enables you to craft completely original unique forms using traditional drawing and sculpting tools. This is perfect for getting your creative juices flowing and thinking about new LFO designs, such as softly ebbing curves or knife-edged waves.
The Rhythm Editor is basically a rhythmic modulation sequencer, essentially. Before you start making new patterns, first decide on a length (e.g. quarter notes, eighth notes, sixteenth notes, etc.) and the amount of steps you want to use (e.g. 16th notes, 8th notes, quarter notes, etc). You may activate and deactivate individual steps to introduce pauses or rests, as well as change the intensity and length of each step to enhance the human quality of your pattern and inject some melodic variance. If you choose, you may make it a bit more syncopated by deciding on the amount of beats each bar. That way, your beats will be syncopated, making your rhythm seem a bit unusual. Patterns are custom just like custom shapes, therefore you may use both of them interchangeably with plug-ins. The one thing that is important to know about working with external effects is that you may lock your own device or DAW to a specific tempo for simple and secure synchronization.
A respected industry resource, Soundtoys effects are utilized, trusted, and recommended by experts in all areas of audio production.
