VST Rack Pro
The VST Rack Pro includes an array of more than 30 rich-sounding popular plug-ins created by Yamaha and Steinberg.
These include the Buss Comp 369, which has been praised by RIVAGE PM users; REVelation, which offers high-quality sampled reverbs; and the SuperVision, which is useful for managing loudness, together with other plug-ins that can be used in wide variety of other applications.
Adding the RUio16-D and the VST Rack Pro to your touring system will let you use sounds from the plug-ins you’re accustomed to, giving you the sound you want wherever you happen to be.
REVelation produces a high-quality algorithmic reverb with early reflections and reverb tail.
REVerence is a convolution tool that allows you to apply room characteristics (reverb) to the audio.
RoomWorks is a highly adjustable reverb plug-in for creating realistic room ambience and reverb effects in stereo and surround formats. The CPU usage is adjustable to fit the needs of any system. From short room reflections to cavern-sized reverb, this plug-in delivers high quality reverberation.
RoomWorks SE is a smaller version of the RoomWorks plug-in. RoomWorks SE delivers high quality reverberation, but has fewer parameters and is less CPU demanding than the full version.
REV-X is a reverb algorithm with features such as sound quality with high-density and rich reverberation, smooth attenuation, and breadth and depth that make the best use of the original sound. You can select from three types of reverb according to the sound field and purpose: REV-X HALL, REV-X ROOM, and REV-X PLATE.
This is a mono delay effect. The delay line uses tempo-based or freely specified delay time settings.
This is a stereo delay effect that alternates each delay repeat between the left and right channels. The delay line uses tempo-based or freely specified delay time settings.
*This plug-in works only on stereo tracks.
StereoDelay has two independent delay lines which either use tempo-based or freely specified delay time settings.
*This plug-in works only on stereo tracks.
Cloner adds up to 4 detuned and delayed voices to the signal for rich modulation and chorus effects.
This modulation effect simulates the classic effect of a rotating speaker.
StudioChorus is a two-stage chorus effect that adds short delays to the signal and modulates the pitch of the delayed signals to produce a doubling effect. The two separate stages of chorus modulation are independent and are processed serially (cascaded).
This plug-in is graphic equalizers. The number of available frequency band is 30.
Studio EQ is a high-quality 4-band parametric stereo equalizer. All four bands can act as fully parametric peak filters. In addition, the low and high bands can act as either shelving filters (three types) or as cut filters (low-pass/high-pass).
Dynamic EQ is a newly developed equalizer, and is not an emulation of a particular model. Since a filter that extracts the same band as the EQ is set on the side-chain, the EQ gain changes dynamically only when the frequency band with an input signal becomes large or small. You can apply EQ to a specific band, like a compressor or an expander. For example, if you use it as a de-esser for vocals, the EQ will be applied to that band only when the sibilants and high-frequency noises are at a jarring level. The result is a natural sound that does not compromise the original sound quality. It is also equipped with two full-band Dynamic EQs that can be used in various ways. This plug-in operates in mono or stereo mode, depending on the channel configuration of the rack.
EQ-1A emulates a vintage EQ that is said to be representative of passive EQs. It has a unique operation style in which the low and high frequency bands are adjusted with separate boost and attenuation (cut) controls. The frequency response, which is completely different from other commonly used EQs, has a character that is unique to this model. In addition, the texture produced by the input/output circuits and vacuum tubes is very musical, for a well-balanced sound. This plug-in operates in mono or stereo mode, depending on the channel configuration of the rack.
[VCM] Equalizer 601
Equalizer 601 emulates the characteristics of an analog equalizer from the 1970s. You can get a sense of drive by reproducing the distortion that is unique to analog circuits. This plug-in operates in mono or stereo mode, depending on the channel configuration of the rack.
DeEsser is a special type of compressor that reduces excessive sibilance.
EnvelopeShaper can be used to attenuate or boost the gain of the attack and release phase of audio material. You can use the knobs or drag the breakpoints in the graphical display to change parameter values. Be careful with levels when boosting the gain and if needed reduce the output level to avoid clipping.
Maximizer raises the loudness of audio material without the risk of clipping. The plug-in provides two modes, Classic and Modern, that offer different algorithms and parameters.
MultibandCompressor allows a signal to be split into four frequency bands. You can specify the level, bandwidth, and compressor characteristics for each band.
MultibandEnvelopeShaper allows a signal to be split into four frequency bands. You can attenuate or boost the gain of the attack and release phase of audio material for each band.
This versatile compressor with integrated tube-simulation allows you to achieve smooth and warm compression effects. The VU meter shows the amount of gain reduction. Tube Compressor features an internal side-chain section that lets you filter the trigger signal.
VintageCompressor is modeled after vintage type compressors. This compressor features separate controls for Input and Output gain, Attack, and Release. In addition, there is a Punch mode which preserves the attack phase of the signal and a program-dependent Auto Release function.
[VCM] Buss Comp 369
Buss Comp 369 emulates the bus compressor that has been used as the standard in recording studios and by broadcasters since the 1980s. In contrast to Compressor 276, which excels at creating aggressive compression sounds, it features smooth, natural compression that does not impair the expressiveness of the source. It has both a built-in compressor and limiter, which can be used separately or in combination depending on the application. In addition, the rich harmonics of the input/output circuit audio transformer and discrete class A amplifier add depth and cohesiveness to the sound quality. This plug-in operates in mono or stereo mode, depending on the channel configuration of the rack.
[VCM] Compressor 260
Compressor 260 emulates the characteristics of a compressor and limiter that were widely used in the mid-1970s. This plug-in operates in mono or stereo mode, depending on the channel configuration of the rack.
[VCM] Compressor 276
Compressor 276 emulates the characteristics of an analog compressor that is a staple in recording studios. You can obtain thick, strong sounds that are suitable for drums and bass parts.
This plug-in operates in mono or stereo mode, depending on the channel configuration of the rack.
AmpSimulator is a distortion effect that emulates the sound of various types of guitar amp and speaker cabinet combinations. A wide selection of amp and cabinet models is available.
Quadrafuzz v2 is a multi-band distortion and multi-effect plug-in for processing drums and loops but also for treatment of vocals, for example. You can distort up to 4 bands. 5 different distortion modes with several sub-modes are available.
SoftClipper adds soft overdrive, with independent control over the second and third harmonic.
VST Amp Rack
VST Amp Rack is a powerful guitar amp simulator. It offers a choice of amplifiers and speaker cabinets that can be combined with stomp box effects.
SuperVision is a professional tool suite for monitoring and analyzing your audio. The plug-in comes with several different modules for level, spectral, phase, or waveform analysis. Its up to 9 module slots allow you to create custom layouts for better overview.
SuperVision features two different processing modes: [Maximum Audio Performance] and [Sample-Accurate Display]. You can choose which mode to use for each module independently.
This utility plug-in allows you to generate an audio signal.
[VCM] Vintage Open Deck
Vintage Open Deck emulates the analog circuitry and tape characteristics of a legendary open reel tape recorder.
This plug-in consists of a recording deck and a reproduction deck, and there are four variations available for each.
