DSM V2 - Prismatic Compressor & Mastering Limiter
The DSM V2 supports 32 & 64-bit AU, VST, RTAS and AAX (Native & DSP)
The heart of the DSM V2 is a one-click "Capture" system
This unique feature uses ground breaking adaptive techniques to capture both the frequency-domain and dynamic characteristics of audio program, and uses this as the basis for a highly developed large scale multiband compression process.
This means that it can sympathetically handle programme over a very wide dynamic range without many of the usual compression artefacts, coping even with large-scale percussive events which badly confound conventional compressors.
The DSM V2 now supports live saving and loading of multiple Spectrum Captures.
The DSM V2 also includes a single-button Limiter function
The Limiter has been optimised specifically to work with the compression stage. This allows short term peak events in the programme to exceed maximum peak modulation levels without causing overs or loss of impact, whilst retaining complete transparency for levels below -1dBFS.
The DSM V2 includes a post-limiter output level trim control, so that headroom can be maintained without the need for an additional gain plugin.
Exemplary results in lightning-fast time can be acheived for common tasks
- Loudness enhancement
- Vocal enhancement and character processing
The DSM V2 provides control over both the spectral response and dynamic characteristics of audio material, bringing a whole new dimension of facility and artistic ability to the sound engineer.
Even greater control is available in the DSM V2 with the Dry/Wet control, which offers a balance between the processed and original programme.
The ability to rapidly capture, modify and re-apply sound character to its own source, or to any other program, provides for novel functionality
- Sound character mapping between whole mixes, tracks, vocal parts and instruments
- Continuity matching in mastering
- Character control for broadcast play out
- Microphone proximity correction in video or film production
- Improving problems in difficult outside broadcast situations in post production
