db audioware has released version 1.1.0 upgrades of Sidechain Compressor and Sidechain Gate, its latest two dynamics processing plug-ins. All the enhancements in the release have been suggested by users since the plug-ins were launched in July 2007.
Sidechain Compressor gets a new manual Gain control, which can either be used independently for manual gain make-up, or to fine tune output levels when used with Auto Gain. This rounds out the Compressor’s feature set and greatly improves its operation as a standard insert effect.
Both Sidechain Compressor and Sidechain Gate get enhanced external side-chain capability. It is now possible to side-chain multiple “receive” plug-ins from a single “send” plug-in, opening the way to one-to-many-tracks as well as one-to-one-track side-chain applications.
Finally, the noise bursts in the demo versions of both plug-ins have been reduced in repetition and volume so as to be less intrusive to potential users trying them out.
Major changes this release include:
* Feature: Added Gain control to allow manual gain make-up and fine adjustment of the output (compressor only)
* Feature: It is now possible to connect multiple “receive” plug-ins to each Universal Sidechain
* Bug fix: fixed intermittent crash when Listen switch selected
* Bug fix: OS X installer was not working for users lacking admin rights
