Klanghelm has released a major update for their saturation plugin SDRR and its free little brother IVGI. The changes are so involved, both SDRR 2 and IVGI 2 have new plugin IDs, so you can use versions 1 & 2 at the same time. SDRR 2 features new GUIs, GUI-resizing, a reworked VU meter (uses the engine of VUMT 2 now), Automatic Gain Compensation option similar to that used in MJUC, reworked dynamics section of TUBE, DIGI, and FUZZ modes to be less quirky, in Desk mode the operation of the Transients control is more obvious and similar to a traditional transient shaper, a redesigned compressor in DESK mode, and a new HQ-mode. IVGI 2 gets a reworked VU meter (also using the engine of VUMT 2) and a new Relaxed mode, which is a variation of the original IVGI model to enhance the sonic palette.

Klanghelm SDRR 2 is available now for €23, or around $27 USD. The update from SDRR 1 is free. Klanghelm IVGI 2 is also free. Both require macOS 10.6 or later and an AU, VST, or AAX plugin host.
