Voxengo Soniformer 400pxVoxengo Soniformer version 3.13 update is now available for download.  Soniformer is a spectral mastering dynamics processor plugin for professional music production applications, available in AAX, AudioUnit, VST, and VST3 plugin formats, for macOS and Windows computers.

Version changes:

  • IMPORTANT: This version has changed its product key format.  If you already purchased this plug-in, to use this version, please visit the Voxengo web site and get a new key at the User Area (if you obtained a product key from a reseller, you will need to add your existing product key there first), or use the Automatic key download feature of the plug-in itself.
  • Added Apple Silicon native compatibility.
  • Enabled the "asynchronous drawing" window mode on macOS; may fix the user interface "lagging".
  • Added "Dry Mix" envelope.
  • Added "Bands" control.
  • "Downward mode" is now called "inverse mode".
  • Automatic instance labeling implemented (not supported in VST2).
  • The "out/in" indicator can now be clicked to trim the output gain knob.
  • The "Copy to" button is now called the "Copy": this button now copies parameters FROM the selected group, NOT TO the selected group.  This should improve the workflow.
  • Improved the quality of oversampling filters.  This may change (improve) the sound of previously created projects where plug-in was used.
  • Added AudioComponents interface to AudioUnit as the ".rsrc" interface may be deprecated in the future.

Every parameter in Soniformer is defined by means of a graphic envelope which is freely-modifiable and which may contain unlimited number of control points.  Beside usual threshold, attack, release and compression/expander ratio parameters Soniformer offers you control over “stereo width” and “panning” parameters making Soniformer an effective tool for stereo field adjustments.
