What is the practical difference between this and your GainRider2 plugin?

GainRider2 has side-chain input with multiple use cases (Ducking etc) and extensive pre-delay functionality. In practise GainRider2 just levels.

DynaRide has special programs for vocal, dialogue and bass material.
DynaRide controls attack and release times. In practise DynaRide sculpts the sound.

I hope this helps:-)

...actually, for the longest time, I've been using MAutoVolume. My SOP is to try any number of the different variants for a given plug-in until I have one that seems to fit the situation the best. (and sometimes just because I'm bored/dissatisfied). So I guess I'm agnostic about all the plugins. Just try'em till you find the one you "like" (today, it's not like you're gettin' married)...hth.../s~

thanx ... i hoped you will say "this vst is the best, get it"
i have no nerves to test them all because i'm not sure if any plugin can deliver the results i need and can get manually and i'm tired of losing time fu**in around with so many sluts i don't even really like ... wanna marry some beauties and then make music with them

Can't stand Waves' offering. Hornet is in the same boat. MAutoVolume is better, but still doesn't cut it. About to audition PowAir.

So far, everything I've seen has the same problem. The attack / release is constant, and fails to adapt to changes in vocal rhythm. I end up having to chop up the vocals manually so the jumps are all during moments of silence in order to achieve a level loudness contour where the envelope from one word or phrase does not adversely affect the envelope of it's neighbors. Sure, I can choose faster or slower, but it's really just a choice between two poorly implemented static options when what's needed is a smarter, adaptive attack/release (probably requiring longer lookahead, analysis period)

Who can compare DynaRide with the usual suspects for (rapid-fire and dynamic) vocal leveling duties?

Also, why is this a separate plugin from GainRider 2? GainRider says right on the website it's primarily a vocal leveler, and DynaRide singles out use for vocals/dialog. It's a mixed message at best. Why one vs the other for vocal leveling?

DynaRide is specially designed for handling individual vocals / instruments.
Of course, with GainRider2 you will achieve acceptable results when dealing with vocals.

That description is no less confusing. If you're implying that GainRider2 ISN'T specially designed for handling vocals, then it's quite odd that it's description on your site starts with "Gainrider 2 is a (vocal-) gain riding tool..."

Not trying to be a PITA, just trying to understand why they are two separate plugs, and which situations are optimized for each. I can't imagine I'm the first person to ever visit the website specifically looking for a vocal riding plugin, and left instead scratching my head wondering whether GainRider is set to be deprecated, etc.

Or, more productively: I'm in search of a vocal leveling plugin to handle rapid-fire dynamic vocals, and have been less than impressed with Waves and others due mainly to their fixed time constants, and inability to dynamically adapt without peaks affecting surrounding words or phrases.

Is there one of your products you would suggest to see if I can get a better result? If so, which, and why that vs the other?

Well, if you work mainly with vocals, DynaRide is your choice. It has more options/functions specifically for vocals/dialogues/instruments.

If you are more in general loudness levelling (e.g. EBU R128), then GainRider2 is the right one. Its flexible sensitivity and pre-delay lets you work better on the "macro" dynamics.

Please try both demo versions, fully functional with small restrictions.

I hope this helps

Is there a mono version? Downloaded demo, only finding it in stereo / Audio Unit Logic Pro X. I'm guessing that the basic algorithm is the same as GainRider2? Compiling the most efficient and transparent channel strip for voice over work.

right, mono is gone because of side chain function.

No, it is not the same. DynaRide has a totally different implementation. The algo focus more on individual voices/instruments.

That is unfortunate, as vocals tend to be in mono.
Using this plugin would add a step to my workflow of converting back to mono after processing.

So do you officially recommend DynaRide for vocal riding vs GainRider2?
The demonstration video of GainRider is featuring a vocal track, so this point is bit confusing on your marketing. Otherwise, your plugins seem to be very high quality, and I'd like to request a mono option. Is PreDelay basically Lookahead?
