Roger Nichols Digital will unveil Detailer at NAMM2007, to be held at Anaheim Convention Center, January 18 thru 21. Detailer is the first RND plug-in to be developed specifically by Roger Nichols, using his in-session experience across literally hundreds of projects. Having worked with the crème de la crème of the world's most successful artists - and picking up seven Grammy® Awards in the process - Roger Nichols knows of what he speaks. His proven hands-on experience is now offered to all DAW users in this plug-in, available in Universal Binary RTAS, VST, AU for Mac OSX plus RTAS and VST for Windows®.
What's in the Details?
Detailer - originally codenamed "Bitchin-izer" - is a stereo mastering tool or a final mix plug-in for a DAW's master fader. Detailer offers a new way of increasing the "detail" or clarity in a final mix while still allowing increased loudness. The process involves a combination of a three-band limiter and dynamic widening using psycho-acoustic processing. Roger Nichols has fine tuned the process so that you can produce the most effective result with the least amount of adjustment.
Three is better than one
Detailer splits the incoming signal into three frequency bands that are each processed independently. Great care has been taken to eliminate phase shifts at the crossover points, a common problem with multiband plug-ins. Once the signal processing is complete, the three bands are recombined into a full frequency band signal.
Dynamic widening without the mud
Detailer uses spectral harmonic detection and intelligent parameter adjustment to apply its innovative dynamic-widening processes only where and when they are useful.
Make it loud, please
Using the advanced limiting algorithms from RND's highly acclaimed Finis plug-in ensures maximum audio levels - if that's needed - while preserving audio dynamics. Using Detailer along with Dynam-izer will give you the loudest mixes on the planet, and leave your dynamics intact.
What you see is what you get
A comprehensive set of meters lets you adjust Detailer settings to perfectly match the specific characteristics of your audio signals.
The full line of RND DAW plug-ins is available as 14-day evaluation copies from the company's website.
