Sonalksis Releases SV-719 Virtual Analog Gate/Expander
Sonalksis has released the SV-719, a virtual analog gate/expander. In keeping with the same ideology of the other plug-ins in the Sonalksis ‘SV’ series, it employs unique design methods to provide a gate/expander with true ‘Analog’ characteristics. In order to achieve this, the SV-719 uses a sophisticated ‘state-space’ modelling technology. This enables analog signal path characteristics to be captured in a digital design.
Aside from all the standard gate parameters, the SV-719 features external side-chain inputs, multiple band side-chain filtering, midi triggering capability, and independent left/right channel triggering possibilities. In addition, a hybrid analogue/digital signal chain path allows look-ahead processing if required.
â€¢ Separate gate and expander models, with soft or hard-knee expansion capability
â€¢ Ducking capability – a mechanism often used in voiceover production, but which can also be used creatively for example to de-emphasize effects which might cloud a mix when there’s too much going on.
â€¢ Zero latency throughput – enables the gate to be used in the monitor path for tracking situations
â€¢ Sonalksis ‘State-space’ physical model design for true analogue response
â€¢ 64bit floating point precision internal processing throughout
â€¢ Support for sampling rates of up to 192 kHz
Sonalksis’ SV-719 is available now for Mac OSX (Universal Binary) in VST, AU and RTAS formats for $259.99. More information on the Sonalksis SV-719.
