UJAM Virtual Drummer 2 PHAT
PHAT’s all about funky urban drums suitable for everything from retro soul to g-funk. This is the sound of pro drummers playing on some of the most sought-after drums out there, recorded with tremendous attention to detail in great-sounding rooms. The finest microphones and outboard gear available were used in these sessions. The result is thirty different drum styles and 720 patterns recorded across 5 drum kits. Of course, it’s all bundled up in UJAM’s frustration-free user interface, so you can make better beats—faster.

Neutron Elements is the latest addition to iZotope’s Neutron family of mixing plug-ins featuring futuristic, assistive technology and four fantastic-sounding audio processors: Compressor, EQ, Exciter, and Transient Shaper. Like having a virtual assistant, Neutron Elements will listen to your audio, identify instruments, and offer custom starting points for your mix decisions while leaving the creative control to you.

Studio Linked Trophies
Trophies is an intuitive and easy-to-use collection of R&B sounds assembled by nine time Grammy-winning producer Bryan-Michael Cox. You get over 500 multi-sampled presets across 13 categories like Arpeggios, Strings, Poly Synths, Bass, Drum Kits, Pianos, and more that can be stacked in up to four layers for thick, lush, textures. There’s also onboard effects, ADSR controls, and filtering controls. Last but not least, there’s a robust library of chord progressions that you can drag-and-drop straight into your instrument track for quick inspiration and study.
SPL Attacker is a micro-plug-in that employs the same Differential Envelope processing technique as SPL’s famed Transient Designer. Using SPL Attacker, all attack events can be amplified, regardless of their signal level. By focusing on the initial transient instead of specific frequencies, SPL Attacker amplifies just the attack curves of a sound event. This allows instruments to be mixed at lower levels, which opens up space in the mix, while the relationship between tracks is preserved.
Mäag Audio EQ2
Mäag Audio EQ2 delivers the sound of the Mäag Audio EQ2 two-band hardware equalizer. Mäag Audio’s EQ design allows for exceptionally low phase shift across all EQ adjustments, which helps maintain the integrity of your mix’s original sound while enhancing the very high “air” frequencies. An input attenuator lets you normalize levels after applying EQ.
Lexicon MPX-i Reverb
Lexicon’s MPX-i Reverb delivers seven classic Lexicon plate, hall, chamber, and room reverbs. A streamlined interface and 100 versatile, finely crafted presets enable you to quickly get the sound you want. Input and output metering let you monitor levels at a glance.
Add warmth, depth and character to your tracks with Klanghelm SDRR2tube. SDRR2tube can be a saturation processor, a compressor, an EQ, a bit-crusher, or a subtle stereo widener—or it can simply add movement to your tracks. A comprehensive set of controls enables you to manipulate the character of the saturation to make it sit perfectly in your mix.
Transform any instrument, synth, raw sound or full track in real time with Output Movement, an exciting effects plug-in for the studio or stage that adds powerful rhythms to any input in real-time. Movement’s four rhythm engines with sidechains, proprietary Flux mode, LFOs, step sequencers, and macros blend seamlessly. Analog modeled effects optimized for modulation let you add rhythm with reverb and compressors pumping, filters and EQs opening and closing, delays morphing, and tube distortion warming and cooling.
The Brainworx bx_opto compressor combines the best aspects and anomalies from several legendary, light-dependent compressor circuits. The result is a powerful dynamics processor, teeming with character and delivering sounds that can’t be achieved with analog optical compressors.
Arturia Analog Lab Lite.
Completing the Studio Magic bundle is Arturia’s Analog Lab Lite, a “Greatest Hits” collection of physically modeled—not sampled—classic analog synths, organs, string machines, and pianos from Arturia’s V-Collection of virtual instruments. Enjoy models of iconic instruments from Oberheim, Roland, Sequential Circuits, ARP, Hammond, Fender, Wurlitzer, Moog, and Vox.
