Electronic Musician – November 2020
Electronic Musician is not merely a recording magazine but covers all aspects of music production—performance, recording, and technology, from studio to stage. EM finds the top artists and producers – as well as all the musical trendsetters – and gets them to advise, mentor, and detail their craft. Each issue gives you the tools you need to make better music, from production to performance. Plus tips and techniques, gear reviews, and insights from today’s top artists.
MAAT DRMeter MkII v2.1.3 Incl Emulator WiN
The MAAT DRMeter offers essential options for musically responsive, realtime level metering. These include graphical and numeric estimation of DR dynamic range, plus measurement of SPPM Peak, RMS amplitude, digital overs and "digital black.” The MAAT DRMeter release was MAAT’s first step in bringing forward the legacy of the PMF’s legendary TT Dynamic Range Meter, certainly the most popular metering plug—in of the last decade and one that engendered many inaccurate imitators. Inspiring music producers and artists worldwide for more dynamic music releases, DRMeter’s carefully tuned ballistics contributed to the original TT’s broad acceptance. 
MAAT thEQblue v2.1.5 Incl Emulator WiN
A dozen precision variations on "analog,” all in one EQ.
Beautiful analog architectures, twelve in all, that will take your work out of the ordinary.

ThEQblue builds on the groundbreaking foundation of Algorithmix's Classic PEQ Blue, while bringing that reference quality into the 21st Century. thEQblue is a collection of up to twelve minimum phase equalizer architectures, all employing 80 bit floating point internal precision. We reverse engineered a variety of well respected hardware EQs, creating idealized digital versions from that inspiration. Rather than models or simulations that carry analog "baggage," thEQblue has no noise, distortion or other secondary effects inherited from analog.
Bettermaker EQ232D v1.0.0 WiN
The Bettermaker EQ232D is a faithful plugin recreation of one of the most respected analog mastering EQs of the new millennium, developed by the Bettermaker team! The original hardware Bettermaker EQ232P MKII on which it is based is renowned for delivering the lush, supple bottom and clear, smooth top end of the legendary Pultec EQs - but with a clean and modern twist that's perfect for contemporary styles of Hip Hop, EDM, Pop, or even Metalcore.

​This precisely modeled plugin version of Bettermaker's instant classic mastering-grade EQ is no different. Like the analog original, it offers the incredible low and high-end shaping capabilities of the best passive EQ designs ever devised, along with the precision, detail, and features of a high-end 21st-century design.
AOM Total Bundle v1.11.0 / v1.10.0 WiN MacOSX
Nowadays, typical digital audio workstations employ floating-point internal precision. However, for distribution media like CD or streaming, we still need to convert our masters to 16 or 24 bit integer formats. These conversion easily introduces sound degradation caused by re-quantization errors. Dithering is a technique to suppress requantization errors on bit depth reduction by adding slickly crafted random signal.

Sakura Dither is a dithering plugin. It works on the final slot of mastering effect chain, converts input floating-point signal to output 8/16/24 bit integer signal. With well-tuned four types of dither characters, you can add a final touch to your masters.
MAAT RSPhaseShifter v2.1.3 Incl Emulator WiN
The only official digital implementation of Roger Schult/German Audio Lab’s Phase Shifter W2324 pure analog hardware

Analog Soul, Digital Heart

Creating a very high fidelity, phase shifted version of the input, RSPhaseShifter provides a fast, convenient and musical means of aligning individual mix elements for best subjective result. RSPhaseShifter is great for any situation where you need to creatively control tonality, power spectrum and harmonic content through phase manipulation.
MAAT LINearise v3.0.0 Incl Emulator WiN
Dither is the missing link between distortion and clarity.

Irrupt Audio Sound Advice WAV
You’re nearly finished making a brand new track. It’s laid out in the DAW, the drums and melodies are placed in the perfect place. You’re playing it back, listening to all the details, the arrangement, the effects – you like it, but something’s missing. You can’t quite figure out what it is, but the track simply feels unfinished. This is a common problem when working in the studio that even the most advanced music professional encounters on a regular basis. And it can be frustrating. ‘Sound Advice’ is a special production tool meant to help you add those missing details.
