NUGEN Audio has announced the availability of its ‘Focus Elements’ plug-in bundle, which offers a collective of audio tools ideally suited for small/home studios. Powered by NUGEN technology, these budget-friendly, streamlined versions of the brand’s popular Focus bundle plug-ins include Stereoizer, Stereoplacer and Monofilter.
“Focus Elements bears the hallmarks of NUGEN Audio quality: providing clear, real-time visual feedback to enable rapid control choices,” says Paul Tapper, CEO, NUGEN Audio. “With our Elements plug-ins, beginner, independent and at-home producers and mixers will have access to the same powerful algorithms used in all our software via a streamlined, straightforward interface.”
Stereoizer Elements provides instant stereo enhancement with the assurance of superb mono compatibility and no unwanted artefacts. Like the traditional Stereoizer software, the Elements plug-in affords users a more coherent sound, with polish and spatial balance, to ensure a mix will sound great in both stereo and mono. Stereoizer Elements is a perfect introduction to creating a feeling of natural space or for pushing the envelope for a full, super-wide expansion of the stereo image.
Ideal for restoration projects, Stereoplacer Elements allows users to fix poor recordings, reposition complex audio and reconstruct the stereo image from a mono source. With just the simple position selection, users can fine-tune each band into specific frequencies and move the frequency content around in the stereo sound stage, while preserving the balance of the original sounds.
An essential bass management solution, Monofilter Elements enables users to sharpen, define and align the bass into the tightest, most transparent mix. With market-leading features for accurate control, Monofilter Elements helps define the center of the bass using precise visual feedback and a user-friendly, tactile interface.
The Focus Elements plug-ins are available for $99 USD (+tax) for both Windows and Mac OS in 64-bit AAX, VST3, AU and AudioSuite formats.
