Maybe they would update the protection again after a while. In cooperation with Brainworx this design was turned into a convincing plugin, whereas the concept was taken to the next level. But why wait til the mastering stage? Musical and magnificent, Magnum-K is a plugin that every serious engineer needs to check out. Maag Audio however, have gone with an entirely different approach. I wonder if someone will release a plug-in version?! The available Ratios range from 1.
A The first big change happened between All Bundle v3. You can notice the big difference between them. On a first viewing of the marketing materials available, this looks like a stunning product, demonstrating there are still new and exciting ways analogue gear can influence production. You can , or on the video below. Adding sheen and presence to anything sent its way, the effect of the Air Band is felt way below the corner frequency thanks to the shape of the slope.
Crank it up and hear those abrasive high-mids melt away. Enjoy the unprofessional behavior of the professional plugins! To be honest we don't know the actual name of that protector. The lift in gloss and power that it gives to vocals, guitars and other instrumentation is heavenly, too. The Magnum-K could take that crucial midrange band right up to the point just before discomfort and controls it, making tracks sound much more powerful as a result. Welcome to compression nirvana and sonic bliss. Fully endorsed and approved by Mäag Audio.
Modeled from the Cliff Maag Sr. This is all great news, often lowering the price of hardware that would otherwise be out of reach for many. At the very end of the signal path, up to 15dB of make-up gain is dialled in, and a soft limiter provides a final stage of compression. Cliff realized early in his career that he needed to be able to control the edginess that often appears in vocals, horns, and guitars, all which tends to occur around 2. The reason is probably because an analogue compressor might be one of the first places you turn for a piece of select hardware. Anyway, it is just a small change.
I can see both mastering engineers and live sound mixers keen to use the unit for this feature alone. As a result, each channel of the plugin sounds slightly different, which provides a much more realistic analog simulation, especially when using it on multiple tracks of a session. Both the hardware and software versions are remarkable for a couple of reasons. Is it removed from R2R release? Each mode has its own set of five fixed frequency detents - between them covering 40Hz-1. A We thought you were paid to complain R2R. Perhaps overly complicated for some and not suitable for every record, but a great piece of professional kit.
The Maag Audio Magnum-K dual compressor plugin is truly innovative and something definitely worth checking out. Each section however has some unique features. It also features a transparent input attenuator, input gain, extensive sidechain capabilities, and makeup gain, along with detented controls for recallable settings and channel matching. The concept is to remove any harshness from a vocal or lead instrument. A Slow loading time, performance affection. This limits the amount of gain reduction applied to 4, 8, 12 or 16dB, making it a set-and-forget solution for preventing over-compression, regardless of ratio.
Interestingly, the compressor is also switchable between feedback and feed-forward routing, the second option taking its sidechain signal before the gain reduction stage and thus being much more aggressive than the first. I really look forward to trying one. . The hardware Mäag Magnum-K on which the brainworx-developed plugin is based launched two years ago to a rapturous reception. At the start of the chain, the Input Attenuation and Input Gain knobs offer up to -12dB and +12dB of starting level adjustment. It delays the crashing but it still crashes by some random seeds time64 and working time. Priced at well over two grand for a single mono channel, the Magnum-K is obviously out of the reach of most producers.
