Nugen Audio introduce SigMod signal flow toolbox
Posted on: Tuesday 29th of May 2018
NUGEN Audio has introduced SigMod – a utility toolbox plug-in – hundreds of ways to enhance your plug-ins and DAW with straightforward signal flow modification via 11 single-process modules that can easily be inserted, swapped, and moved around, allowing for new options to correct, convert, or tweak audio as required.
Put simply, SigMod allows for far more flexibility than is available in DAW setups – especially Pro Tools – by allowing access to creative and advanced production techniques. Single-process modules can be instantiated within the SigMod plug-in: Mid/Side; Protect (for safeguarding digital equipment via virtual protection ‘circuitry’); Mono; Switch (for switching over the left and right — or mid/side — signals); Delay (for delaying in milliseconds or samples); Phase (for inverting either side); Trim (for applying dB offset); DC Offset (for detecting and offsetting accordingly); Tap (for parallel processing); Crossover (for splitting frequencies to apply band-limited effects); and Mute/Solo (for muting or soloing a specific channel).
Combining those modules in any order allows SigMod users to design the precise routing required, resulting in instant inclusion of ‘missing’ features for easy exploration of new creative choices with auto-resizing keeping signal flow and functionality clear at all times. SigMod serves up many useful, creative processes that are otherwise difficult to engage. Though parallel processing – namely, a second audio signal running alongside or ‘in parallel’ with the original sound to enhance and enlarge it in some way (rather than simply chaining a series of effects to interrupt the dry sound of an audio or software instrument track via its inserts) – can prove fiddly to set up, it doesn’t have to be that way with SigMod… simply drop in the Tap module and all is good to go!
Get going elsewhere equally easily using the Crossover module to split the high frequencies from the lows, allowing application of different effects to different frequency ranges – really useful for avoiding muddying up the low frequencies or getting creative with automation or sweep effects.
SigMod is available to purchase as a 32 and 64-bit AAX, AU, VST, and VST3-compatible utility toolbox plug-in for Mac (OS X 10.7 and above) and Windows (Vista and above) from NUGEN Audio at an introductory price of $29.00 USD until June 25, 2018 (rising to its regular price of $49.00 USD thereafter).
