Friday’s Freeware: More than words…
Summer has come, it’s warm and it’s a perfect time for resting. Can’t hear of percentages and cents anymore? Then control your plug-ins with words.
Semantic Audio launched the SAFE Project, 4 plug-ins available for free and in open source for Mac and PC (and soon on Linux LV2), that are based on words to adjust their parameters. Do you want a warm sound? Bright? Aggressive? Enter the word in the field and the plug-in will make the adjustments for you.
To recognize these terms, the plug-ins are connected to a server and if the word exists in its database, it will reflect the settings in the interface.
Being a contributive project, you can also manually adjust the settings and save them with a representative word that best describes the type of sound you achieved. The more users, the richer the database and the more accurate the results.
The SAFE Project currently features compression, reverb, parametric EQ and saturation/overdrive plug-ins.
There are available as VST and AU 32/64-bit formats on Mac and PC and you can also access the code at www.semanticaudio.co.uk.
Have a great sonic weekend!
