De la Mancha Releases sidearm
The latest release from de la Mancha plugins, sidearm, is a compressor with options to tweak the sidechain signal for precise control.
It can perform downwards, upwards and parallel compression and limiting, in peak or RMS flavours and with lookahead if you want it.
Whether you choose an internal sidechain or an external audio source, you can modify the sidechain audio with a multi-mode, adjustable-slope filter (up to 96 dB/octave) and adjust the mid/side, stereo balance and gain. You can also gate the control signal so it only kicks in above a certain level.
This brings a level of control that will allow you to define exactly when the compressor kicks in, by isolating specific frequencies, stereo positions and volume levels in the sidechain. There is even a ‘sidechain listen’ option so you can hear what the compressor hears in the sidechain.
Pricing & Availability
The usual demo version is available from the website and there is an introductory price offer of $20 until the end of March 2009, after which it goes up to $29.
