Syrah v3 - The Creative Adaptive-Dynamics Processor
[ AU 32 & 64 bit | VST 32 & 64 bit | AAX Native/DSP/AudioSuite 32 & 64 bit* | Waves WPAPI | Merging VS3 32 & 64 bit** ]

 

When we started sketching our new plug-in project, our aim was to create a versatile and truly musical dynamics processor, which handles the dynamics in a way that allows you to be creative, without a complicated user interface.

 

The result is Syrah, a new generation dynamics processor utilizing real time dynamic detection and level dependent processing, providing adaptive dynamic capabilities, which mean that Syrah is always trying to adapt to the music and to the beat of the material.

 

Using parts of our exquisite ‘BitterSweet’ technology, our new adaptive-dynamics technology, and our well-recognized level independent dynamics processing, Syrah will be well suited as a creative versatile processor for recording and mixing, as well as for delicate and demanding mastering tasks.

 

User Interface and Workflow

 

As you may notice, the controls are not the usual suspects found on a dynamics processor, instead, the controls provided typically affect more than one parameter in the underlying algorithms, with everything carefully tweaked allowing for creative processing still ensuring the finest sound achievable.

 

The built in preset manager and the preset morphing slider, provides instant and intuitive control of all parameters and controls. In a second, with a simple one-click operation, everything is copied from one of the two preset slots to the other. even during playback. Except for only A/B comparing two set of parameters, the morphing slider will allow for mixing them, and if desired, record the morph with the host automation.

 

With the built in preset manager, you can save a complete snapshot (called a Global Preset) with all the settings from both of the preset slots, as well as the position of the preset morphing slider, allowing for instant recall of your morphing set.

 

 

*Syrah v3 AAX Native/DSP & AAX AudioSuite supports 32 bit in Pro Tools 10.3.5 and 64 bit in Pro Tools 11.

 

**VS3 32/64 bit versions for Pyramix 9 & Ovation Native/MassCore available only through Merging Technologies

Signal Processing Features

  • Input/Output gain controls for adjusting the levels before and after processing.
  • Dry Mix control (Dry/Wet with gain compensation) allowing for parallel processing or for blending some of the original "peak" into the processed signal.
  • Clipper, a discrete peak limiter at the very last stage of the processing chain rounding off the peaks smooth and musically.
  • Bypass routes the incoming signal direct to the output for a true smooth transition between processed and clean signal.

 

Preset and Parameter Handling

 

Preset/Parameter slots

To enhance the workflow the two Preset/Parameter slots, A and B, can be loaded with two full set of parameters at the same time. Apart from saving each preset, a "Global Preset" containing both the A and B settings, and the position of the "Morphing Slider", can be saved.

 

Parameter Morphing Slider with Automation

The Morphing Slider provides morphing between the parameter settings of slot A/B allowing for really creative and useful real-time tweaking. Enabling the Automation control button exposes the Morphing Slider to the host automation.
