SAND is a channel-strip featuring a combination of many devices into a single one.
We have faithfully recreated the sound characteristics of classic British high-end mixing consoles and recording studio hardware. It is characterized by a unique color with new incredible features, first of all the "Control" of the routing of the plugin components.

It consists of four main components:
- EQs (A mode, B mode),
- Filters (A mode, B mode)
- Comps (A mode, C mode)
- Control

Mac osx: we'll try to include the update to 48-88 tomorrow. In the worst case we have a quick and fix solution (files to copy manually)
Windows: we are updating the 48-88 frequency packs, it is an update


Guys, this thing is incredibly good.
Compressor alone changes a demo to a record just placing it on the bus.
I know there are other clones, but imho this one doesn't feel sterile or like plastic. Can you mix without it?

There will be an update with a less cpu hungry compressor.
We preferred a clean release with a prestine quality, we need to check carefully the optimizations are not creating issues to the sound

uhm... demoing now, not hearing that (vs slate grey/duende). Maybe a touch hyperbolic there? 8-)

Needs more time from me to really see (probably needs mixing into), but so far it's quite pumpy and volume is all over the place on a mix (on similar settings to my usual). Maybe user error. :mrgreen:

check carefully.... check insane mode is turned on....
(check also that other compressors don't have a "range" parameter turned on).
This is very very good :D
Unless you are reaching 20 dB of GR this compressor is transparent. Try auto mode, whatever attack, insane mode, compressor A and possibly a threshold around 20.
It is "alive".
Also check interpolation of the eq (even on analyzers). The eq is very very very good, I'm sure the best of this kind of tool, even among nebula libraries. It is a new technique, this is why I'm so sure about it.
