PreSonus unveils Studio Magic plug-in suite

PreSonus has announced that it is now shipping its Studio Magic plug-in suite for its Studio One 3 DAW for Mac and Windows.

The software bundle includes seven popular plug-ins in Studio One Native Effects format.

SPL Attacker is a micro-plug-in that uses the same Differential Envelope processing technique as SPL’s Transient Designer. The plug-in means that all attack events can be amplified, regardless of their signal level.

Additionally, by focusing on the initial transient instead of specific frequencies, SPL Attacker amplifies just the attack curves of a sound event. This allows instruments to be mixed at lower levels, which opens up space in the mix, while the relationship between tracks is preserved.

Mäag Audio EQ2 delivers the sound of the Mäag Audio EQ2 two-band hardware equaliser. Mäag Audio’s EQ design allows for low phase shift across all EQ adjustments, which helps maintain the integrity of a mix’s original sound while enhancing the very high “air” frequencies.

Lexicon’s MPX-i Reverb delivers seven classic Lexicon plate, hall, chamber, and room reverbs. It includes a streamlined interface and 100 versatile presets, while input and output metering lets users monitor levels at a glance.

The H910 plug-in is a faithful re-creation of the Eventide H910 Harmoniser. Pitch changing can be used to create specific musical intervals and perfect harmonies, spread guitars, fatten snares, apply subtle organic detuning to synths, and add slap-back delays to vocals. Also from Eventide is the 2016 Stereo Room, derived from Eventide’s SP2016 hardware processor, which delivers a ‘natural, distinctive-sounding’ reverb.

The Brainworx bx_opto compressor combines the best aspects and anomalies from several light-dependent compressor circuits, resulting in a powerful dynamics processor. Completing the Studio Magic bundle is Arturia’s Analogue Lab Lite, a “Greatest Hits” collection of physically modelled classic analogue synths, organs, string machines, and pianos from Arturia’s V-Collection of virtual instruments.

The PreSonus Studio Magic bundle is available immediately and is free to registered owners of any currently available PreSonus audio interface or mixer, including AudioBox USB, AudioBox i-series, and Studio-series interfaces and StudioLive Series III, StudioLive AR USB, and StudioLive RML-series mixers.
