Newfangled Audio and Eventide are proud to release Elevate, and they are calling it the most advanced mastering plugin ever created. This unique multi-band limiter, human-ear EQ, and powerful audio maximizer will increase the loudness of your mix while maintaining or improving its dynamic perception. As per EQuivocate, Elevate uses linear phase auditory filters based on the Mel Scale to manipulate the audio in a way that is natural to your inner ear, then it automatically adapts the attack, release and look-ahead parameters for each filter band to greatly reduce pumping and breathing artifacts and perceived distortion. Presets by APS Mastering, Matt Lange, Jeremy Lubsey, Eric Beam, ROCAsound, Chris Tabron, and John McCaig are included.
Newfangled Audio Elevate is available now for $199, with an intro price of $99. You can upgrade from EQuivocate for $79, however, and EQuivocate remains free through October 31. Elevate requires macOS 10.7 or later, an AU, VST, or AAX plugin host, and a free iLok account. An iLok USB dongle is optional but not necessary.
