Exclamation SKnote announce Cuttertone AAX (and VST/AU) - A vinyl cutter processor, for mixing.

Here we go! Finally for Pro Tools, too. Cuttertone is modelled after a classic processor for mastering to vinyl.

The intrinsic limits of the medium (the vinyl disk and the storage technique to get a stereo signal mechanically memorised on it) impose a specific, often quite heavy, processing before sending the final signal to the cutter. Mainly limiting of the acceleration of the cutter (related to high frequency content) and the stereo width of the lowest frequency range (that could destroy the groove cut on the surface).

Turns out that a few of the usual processes can be extremely useful as effects while mixing, too.

We modelled such a processor to get those effects available in the virtual mixer.
Cuttertone has been one of our most successful processors to date and now, with our usual titanic times, it is being made available to Pro Tools users, too, as an AAX (Native and DSP!) plugin (32/64) for both Windows and Mac OSX systems (and also for Avid Venue live consoles).

Being released next Oct 28th, with the usual price tag of 19.99$ as a launch price, then going up to 29.99$ on the release (pre-buy option, get VST/AU now).
