NUGEN Celebrates Decade Of Service At AES Convention

News Image
At the 2014 AES Convention in Los Angeles, NUGEN Audio is celebrating a decade of service to the music and audio post-production communities by introducing MasterCheck, an audio plug-in that empowers producers to create music in the new audio paradigm of loudness normalization in music streaming.

In addition, NUGEN Audio is featuring version 2 of Visualizer, the latest incarnation of the company's industry-leading audio analysis and real-time comparison toolset.
"Over the past 10 years, NUGEN Audio has become the recognized leader in loudness technology — and now we're pleased to introduce the world's first loudness tool specifically designed for the music producer," said Jon Schorah, founder and creative director, NUGEN Audio. "Streaming services such as iTunes Radio, Spotify, and DAB Radio are now using loudness normalization and true-peak limiting techniques. We designed MasterCheck to empower producers to mix audio to the new criteria and understand not only how algorithms from the major streaming platforms will affect the mix, but how the music will sound on consumer playout devices for the optimal listening experience."
MasterCheck is an audio plug-in for professional recording systems such as Avid Pro Tools, Steinberg Cubase, or Ableton Live. Ideal for every aspect of music production including recording, mixing, mastering, compilation, archive, and restoration, MasterCheck is also very useful for producing podcasts at optimal loudness levels for dialog clarity and the listener environment. With MasterCheck, audio engineers can apply loudness matching and dynamic content analysis, using techniques such as peak-to-loudness ratio (PLR), to compare their audio output with existing productions. The advanced side-chain loudness matching can also be used to audition signal paths without the "improvement" of increased loudness to understand precisely how various effects such as compression can change the sound with no influence from the loudness enhancement. In this manner, MasterCheck empowers professionals to re-gain control over the playout environment by providing a precise understanding of how their tracks will sound during streaming. For the first time, producers can take full advantage of the new loudness normalization paradigm.
Also on display at the 2014 AES Convention is Visualizer version 2, the latest update of NUGEN Audio's audio analysis suite designed for high-end music professionals. Ideal for music mixing and mastering as well as audio post-production, Visualizer provides comprehensive audio analysis for recording, mixing, and mastering in a single plug-in. The standardized reference set of professional tools is designed to help audio engineers work faster, avoid mistakes, repeat past successes, and understand the success of others.
Based on customer feedback, this major update to Visualizer features numerous user interface enhancements including a fully resizable interface, a multiview feature that enables engineers to compare multiple sources using a single plug-in, and a difference view showing the difference between two input signals. In addition, Visualizer is now available in a version supporting Avid Pro Tools | HDX, as well as a stand-alone version.
MasterCheck will be available in October at a suggested retail price of $129. Also in October, users will be able to download a beta version of the new Visualizer, with the full release scheduled for later this year.
