Native Instruments Solid Mix Series Processors
Based on sophisticated component modeling, the Solid Mix Series ($229) from Native Instruments re-creates the essential components of a classic mixing desk. The series comprises three individual modules that provide the tools to create a polished and professional-sounding mix. “Solid EQ” features four parametric bands, as well as the adjustable low-cut and high-cut filters, and switchable EQ types. “Solid Bus Comp” provides a sidechain input as well as a dry/wet control for parallel compression. “Solid Dynamics” provides a combined dynamics section with stereo compressor, expander and a gate that lends itself to the precise dynamics processing of individual tracks. All products can used be used with Guitar Rig (Free) or Guitar Rig 5 and are included in the new Komplete 8 Ultimate (VST, AU, Core Audio, RTAS).

NUGEN Audio LMB Loudness Meter
LMB ($999) from NUGEN Audio is a standard-compliant, Windows-based, file loudness measurement and correction solution. LMB is fully compliant with the latest loudness standards—ITU-R BS1770, EBU R128, ATSC A/85—and many other regional localizations, offering a complete professional solution for loudness and true peak compliance in Mix, Mastering, Post Production, Film and Broadcast. LMB will automatically assess and, if necessary, correct files to current loudness criteria as an integral part of your loudness control strategy. Typically operating at many times faster than real-time, on batches of audio or video files (yes, LMB can automatically de-mux video to analyze the audio content without changing the original file), LMB saves time and prevents mistakes, rapidly generating the information and files you need.

Universal Audio Ampex ATR-102 Plug-In
The UAD-2 plug-in platform is playing host to another legacy hardware emulation. The Ampex ATR-102 Mastering Tape Recorder Plug-In ($349) features settings for four tape formulations (250, 456, 900 and ATR), three tape widths (1-inch, ½-inch and ¼-inch), four alignment calibrations (+9, +7.5, +6 and +3), rotary adjustments for Repro and Record levels, plus NAB or CCIR emphasis curve choices. The plug-in can also simulate tape speeds from 3.75, 7.5, 15 and 30 ips and includes presets from engineers Chuck Ainlay, Richard Dodd, Buddy Miller, and Mike Poole. 

Radial Reamp JCR
The latest-generation passive Reamper from Radial follows the traditional design set out by inventor and patent holder John Cuniberti. The new Reamp JCR ($199) features Radial’s unique bookend design and 14-guage I-beam steel construction for added protection against wear and tear. A full bottom no-slip pad promises stay-put operation while improving mechanical and electrical isolation. Features include 100-percent passive design, variable output, a three-position tone filter, mute switch, ground lift and polarity invert switch.
