News From Musikmesse: BIAS Master Perfection Suite Plug-Ins

April 3, 2009

All six professional audio processing plug-ins from BIAS' Master Perfection Suite will also be available separately as retail editions; plug-ins include Repli-Q (spectral matching), PitchCraft (pitch correction/manipulation), Reveal (analysis; pictured), Sqweez-3 and -5 (multiband dynamic processing), SuperFreq (paragraphic EQ) and GateEx (gate/expander).

Repli-Q is a linear-phase spectra-matching/balancing plug-in designed to analyze, edit and compare the spectral content of audio recordings. Once analysis has taken place, the spectral characteristics of one recording may be applied to another. Repli-Q can mimic or apply an artist's spectral "style" to your own recordings or use it in the mastering process to give a cohesive sound to a collection of songs that may have been recorded and mixed in different locations or environments.

Both Sqweez-3 and Sqweez-5 incorporate advanced new linear-phase equalization algorithms from BIAS. Sqweez-3 and Sqweez-5 offer graphic per-band viewing/editing of threshold and EQ. Each band may be solo'd and/or bypassed individually, and an Auto-Gain button compensates for loudness variations due to compression. Additionally, a variable "digital ceiling" slider controls the clipping headroom of the integrated soft-clip function.

PitchCraft is a real-time pitch-correction/transposition plug-in that also offers the ability to manipulate the signal to achieve creative effects. Professionals can rely on PitchCraft to fix out-of-tune vocals or other single voice instruments with minimal artifacts due to a powerful pitch-shifting algorithm.

Reveal combines seven tools in a single plug-in interface: oscilloscope, peak and RMS power history, spectrogram, pan power, spectral analysis, Lissajous phase scope, and peak and RMS level meters. An All view displays every tool in a single window.

Paragraphic EQ with SuperFreq is a suite of mastering-quality 4, 6, 8 and 10-band parametric graphic equalizers with everything for professional caliber equalization, including -18dB to +18dB gain values; 0.1 to 30 "Q" (bandwidth) values; sweepable frequencies from 20-20k Hz, individual band bypass buttons; 24dB stereo I/O meters; and filters including peak, notch, high shelf, low shelf, high cut and low cut.

Gate and Downward Expand with GateEx feature waveform and graph displays, and a suite of advanced parameter controls. GateEx effectively removes signals below an assignable threshold while the integrated downward expander helps reduce residual unwanted content.

The Master Perfection single editions will be available in April from $59 to $149 U.S. SRP. The entire Master Perfection Suite is also available separately for $599 U.S. SRP. Master Perfection Suite is also included as part of the Peak Pro XT package.
