Software Klanghelm IVGI: new free Saturation for Win and OSX

Hi all,
I've just released IVGI, the little brother of the upcoming saturation plugin SDRR.



IVGI can deliver very soft and subtle saturation, that feels at home on the master buss. It is equally capable of very dense and dirty distortion effects to spice up single tracks.

IVGI's base sound is comparable to the DESK mode in the upcoming big brother SDRR.

Just as SDRR, IVGI reacts dynamically to the input signal. Even the modelled fluctuations react dynamically and also change depending on the drive setting, so that it doesn't get in the way of the SOUND. Stereo tracks benefit from it's modelled crosstalk behaviour. Just as its big brother SDRR, IVGI features a "Controlled Randomness", which determines the internal drift and variance inside the unit. It contributes to the livelyness and realness of IVGI's saturation character. All internal processes are modulated to some extent to make this possible.

IVGI gives you a sensible amount of controls to manipulate the character of the saturation itself. It offers a unique ASYM MIX knob to alter the symmetry of the signal without affecting the harmonic content much. Usually, asymmetry leads to an increase of even order harmonics. But in IVGI's case, dialing in the asymmetry makes the negative part of the signal "cleaner". This way you can preserve the dynamic structrure of the source better and get a more transparent result. Actually, you can think of ASYM MIX as a transparency control.

IVGI also lets you alter the frequency dependency of the saturation with the RESPONSE control.

IVGI is internally calibrated to 0VU = -18dBFS.

IVGI is freeware. Get it here:

Have fun.

Tony

Everything about your products is so full of character and I like that, looking forward to try this! When will the dirty full blood chameleon be unleashed?

I'm sure it will be awesome, I use now almost only dc8c as a compressor.
Congrats!

PS: beautiful skin!

Thanks for the freebie, I got the compressor too but never really dug the saturation models on there. But this is usable and seems quite distinct from other saturation I have which is a good thing. I'm definitely intrigued about it's big brother

As a huge fan of DC8C, I'm really looking forward to the full version of this. Thanks for the freebie, will download today!

Exclamation

A preview of what the big brother SDRR will look like (4 skins to choose from).

And the added features :
- 4 types of saturation (TUBE, DIGI, FUZZ, DESK)
- transient and compression control
- up to 3 stages of saturation

Sounds good !!!

Sorry guys, these are not skins.

It the 4 different modes interface. Each mode has its own.

And different controls, so sorry for the misunderstanding !

Just been fooling around with it for a while and it has a really dynamic and fresh/new saturation character. Sometimes I sense as if it's messing with the timing on individual tracks though?
A linked trim and output would be useful as well as a blend (looks like the blend is there on the big brother)

Really good looking GUI as well!

Fantastic work Tony.
Great controls.
Nice on the stereo bus.
Thanks very much.

(Seems to be a bit of a CPU hit though)

The SDRR looks VERY cool.

cheers

Very good plugin!
I just try it on a drums sampler and it remind me to the sound of analog desk.
In neutral mode it is subtle but add some nice punch and presence in mid and mid low.
You must try it on a good monitor system!
When the big brother should come out?
Will be in the same price range of the other Klanghelm plugins?

Thanks,

\<.

p.s.: why not Osx RTAS version of the DC8C?

thank you all for the kind comments

I hope that SDRR will be ready in about a month. But never trust announced release dates
SDRR will have an intro price of around 22 €. I've not decided yet. But it has to be a bit higher than DC8C, since I've been working over a year on SDRR.

Today I've started working on the next DC8C update too to make it available as OSX RTAS soon, if not before SDRR's release it will be ready shortly after.

because as a dev you have to pay a significant yearly fee to be able to release AAX plugins. I might jump on the AAX wagon later this year, though.

Ok so far very impressed with this. Great transient smoothing without robbing the source of energy. Very nice creamy sound and a brand new flavor to add to my console options. Great job with this Tony. VERY curious about the full plugin and all the options it brings to the table

Thanks, Tony--excited to try this! Still use Dc8C all the time--does the current update fix the focus/keystroke-stealing where you can't start/stop playback without click on the screen? Still kind of annoying--think this is the only plug that I have that does this. I'm on mac/Mlion/studio one 2.5

Congratulations for the release. Do you have plans about porting your plugins to Propellerhead RE format?

Very Cool! If this is up to par with the DC8C im sure it'll be great.

Thanks! Very nice sounding plug!
My drum bus likes it!
Judging from the DC8C release, it seems that you like to give a lot of features for extra tweak ability and fine tuning. Though I appreciate this, I find when mixing I gravitate to intuitive tools that don't require me to do a whole lot of left brain analysis.
That is why I like this freebie.

Still waiting for the big brother, though. And I hope we get a full video tutorial when it comes.

No plan for RE, really. Too much GUI work involved with this.

AAX will be next.

I only had a few minutes to mess with it. Noticed that for the Mac RTAS, whenmoving a knob and maybe later wanting to move it back to it's original setting (option/click knob) doesn't work. Was messing with the trim and other knobs but none of them have this feature. That's really a basic and key function for users. Are you planning on adding that later?

Thanks,

Marc
