SounDevice Digital unveils DI box-emulating plugin DIFIX

United Plugins has announced the availability of founding partner SounDevice Digital’s DIFIX DI box-emulating plugin.

SounDevice Digital’s DIFIX deploys several independent processes to level the sound and add a little analogue-style saturation so as to effectively work as a DI-box-emulating plugin.

Switch between BASS DI or GUITAR DI to change the internal algorithms to best fit the incoming signal, with the former improving missing bass guitar frequencies while the latter is tuned to be used with electric or electro-acoustic guitar, then decide how much DIFIX should improve the signal using the plugin’s simple controls.

DIFIX is intended as an accessible tool to assist anyone recording in home studios with low-cost audio interfaces.

SounDevice Digital’s new plugin provides pre-eminent audio quality, utilising internal 64-bit processing, and can capably handle any sampling rate — right up to 192 kHz (or even higher). Having said that, it intelligently handles bypassing to ensure that there are no nasty clicks or harmful noises when automating the parameter and also compensates for latency by ensuring that the bypass states are perfectly in sync with each other.

On top of that, the plugin intelligently detects whether it makes sense to perform processing at all. And if not, it temporarily turns on sleep mode, reducing CPU usage.

SounDevice Digital’s DIFIX is available now.
