Today I release the “prototype” of my look ahead limiter named KRUCZ. Besides being another new and exciting approach of emulating analog style peak compression, a feature that sets KRUCZ apart from the competition is the ability to seamlessly blend soft-clipping and compression.
KRUCZ in its current state is fully functional software, but its labeled “prototype” as the underlying technology will change from “Synthmaker” to native c++, to overcome the current platforms limitations. The Platform change will only happen if there is enough interest into KRUCZ.
Until the “final version” arrives, you can buy a “prototype” license at a discount price. The “prototype” license has the same features as the final license.
- TOY KRUCZ (prototype): 15€ (for non commercial use only)
- TOOL KRUCZ (prototype): 50€
There will be a price increase if it comes to a final version, approximately double the price. The “final version” is expected to have additional features like:
- Mac OSX support (Intel only)
- precise input for parameters via text input
- faster loading times
- skin able GUI
- possible performance increase
- 64 bit processing when and where beneficial (optional to preserve original sound)
- personalized license file (simple key-file)
for now I set the policy to no refund and no license transfer, but this is likely to change on future customer demand.
Any feedback is very welcome! Until an audioD3CK forum is ready please use this forum thread on KVRAUDIO.com to discuss your ideas and issues with KRUCZ.
For more information, a manual and a demo downoad go to the KRUCZ page on this website. Have fun!
