Flux have been busy recently and have released a new true peak limiter Elixir aimed at the audio post production market for those producing content to one of the new loudness specs like the EBU R128. But this isn’t a loudness management plug-in, it is designed to manage the true peak levels to keep them within the broadcaster’s delivery spec whilst being as transparent as possible and not unduly adding to the loudness. I think this is the first product of its type and so I wanted to see if Flux had managed to meet these expectations. I set up a session with a range of different programme types to see how it would perform and also followed it with a loudness meter to see if it changed the loudness too much. I found it was very good with very few side effects even when working it hard. It is very simple to use with the main Threshold control often the only one I would need to set. Once I had got to grips with the basics I studied the manual because there was a couple of controls I didn’t expect to see on a limiter.Read More
The Pure Analyzer from Flux is a big application with loads of options that displays and measures your audio in so many ways. Separate App The first thing that is different about Analyzer, is unlike their other products that function as plug-ins within the host application like Pro Tools, Analyzer doesn't. It is a separate application that picks up signals from a Sampler Grabber plug-in (similar to ReWire) and routes the data to the main Pure Analyzer application. This threw me at first as I was expecting a plug-in and having run the installer I couldn't find the plug-in. However once I had read the manual the configuration and arrangements were very clear and I had Analyzer running very quickly.Read More

I ran My Pro Tools rig up to do some work and Pro Tools reported that a critical update was required. I was running Pro Tools 9.0.3 HD on a Mac Pro with 10.6.8 OS. So I downloaded the Pro Tools 9.0.5 update and installed it. After the obligatory restart, I ran Pro Tools and it crashed towards the end of the start up cycle. Reading the crash report it seemed to point to my Flux Sryah plug-in causing the crash.Read More

Tutorial 4 shows how how to change the age and gender of a spoken voice using the Voice Forger in IRCAM Tools TRAX Transformer. Tutorial 5 shows how to make a normal spoken voice sound like it's whispering, using the 'Breathy' function of the Voice Forger in IRCAM Tools TRAX Transformer. Tutorial 6 shows how to transform the voice of a singing woman using the Voice Forger; Young/Old, Male/Female, Transpose and Formant controls. Tutorial 7 shows how to Transform the age of a singing woman using the Voice Forger and the Transpose (Pitch) Modulator in IRCAM Tools Trax Transformer. Tutorial 8 shows how to adjust the expression and tuning of a singing voice using the built in tuning modes in the voice forger in IRCAM Tools Trax Transformer. Tutorial 9 demonstrates how the pitch change on a polyphonic instrument is done in order to achieve the best possible result. Tutorial 10 shows how to pitch and remix a loop and change the characteristics of it completely. Tutorial 11 shows how to use the Spectral Envelope in TRAX Transformer to create a special effects sound from an instrument sound loop. and tutorial 12 shows how to transform an ordinary acoustic guitar into a twelve string guitar with a little chorus effect on, using Transpose and Modulation in the Trax Transformer.
These are simple tutorials that show how to use these clever but at times complex tools to do some very smart tricks. The first set is all about the Transformer plug-in and demonstrates how to change the gender of a speaker as well as some finer adjustments.... Apparently there are more of these in the pipeline so either subscribe to the Flux channel on YouTube of follow them on Twitter.
