RJ Studios releases DRP2a Dynamic Range Processor v2.2.0
Wednesday February 24, 2021. 02:46 AM , from Gearslutz
The v2.2.0 update features a 50% larger GUI to better support high resolution monitors as well as the following enhancements:10-15% reduction in CPU load (depending on plugin format)
New "LED" indicator in the soft clipping section
Gain Reduction meter scale has been remapped for better resolution at low GR levels (was a linear dB scale, now exponential)
The plugin update is free for all current owners.
The DRP2a plugin is an emulation of the hardware unit manufactured by Rocksonics Professional Audio in the mid 1990's - with many BONUS features only available in the plugin. The DRP2a is a "Swiss Army Knife" of dynamics processors capable of a multitude of functions - all within one little plugin interface including:
soft noise gating
pumping and MORE
The DRP2a uses multiple layers of program-dependent RMS level detectors for smooth, low distortion "musical" results while being very simple to set up and operate. A single Threshold control sets the point at which compression and gating occur making it fast to set up on guitars, vocals, bass, etc.
The DRP2a plugin offers the same time constants and controls as the original hardware unit including Ratio - with a continuous range from 10:1 compression thru 1:1.9 expansion - Threshold, Makeup Gain and Release speed. An Expander Gate control allows the selection of two different downward expansion ratios for the soft expander noise gate.
The plugin offers additional features not found in the original hardware unit including:Internal/External Side Chain input with variable high pass filter
Switchable Look Ahead
Variable De-Essing emphasis control for the side chain
Oversampled output Clipper/Limiter with variable threshold
Wet/Dry Mix control
The DRP2a is a 64-bit plugin available as VST2, VST3 and AAX for PC and VST2, VST3, AU and AAX formats formats for Mac OS 10.7-11.x (Intel). A free demo can be downloaded from the RJ Studios website: https://www.raisingjakestudios.com/plugins.html
