Sound Magic releases Neo Dynamic. They says that this is a new concept in dynamic processing technology. Sound Magic Neo Dynamic is based on Sound Magic Award Winning Modeling Technology. This makes Neo Dynamic more like a sampler than typical compressors and limiters. Item bodies several algorithms (such as sample sets) that make this plug-in easy to expand and extend with new compressors/limiters models in the future. Neo Dynamic starts with 10 compressors/limiters, modelled after famous brand names such as SSL, API and TubeTech. Each of these has their own famous “flavors” ready to use.
Sound Magic Award Winning Modeling Technology accurately models every nuance of these famous compressors and limiters. It took years to model each knob and every control on the real hardware, but the results are amazing. When we did phase cancelling tests comparing our models with the originals, we got a result of 43dB decreases in volume indicating a 99.5% similarity with the original hardware.
Neo Dynamic is easier to use than traditional compressors because of it’s by Sensor Network Technology. When using compressors/limiters, it’s easy to hear the big problems such as over compressing and distortions. Neo Dynamic goes beyond this, with Sensor Network monitoring every step in the processing ring. It will tell you when over compression is happening – even when it’s not easily audible. It will even let you know when you set the threshold too high telling you that the compressor isn’t actually doing anything. Neo Dynamic will also calculate the distortion rate based on your settings and tell you whether you will have a transparent, clean sound or a heavy, colored sound.
Neo Dynamic makes the whole dynamic processing experience easier by combining compressors and limiters together. In many cases, compressors and limiters have been treated as two different units. Neo Dynamic automatically combines them both. When you push the ratio knob to max, for example, Neo Dynamic will switch to Limiter Mode automatically. In this way, you can have two units together at your fingertips.
