Auburn Sounds Couture v1.2 WIN OSX
Size 10 Mb
Couture gives you exquisite control over your dynamics, and particularly attacks.
Raw Efficiency. Increase or decrease dynamics. Get a usable result, now.
Fully Volume-independent. Keep the freedom to change input gain when needed. Including the Saturation stage.
Laser-sharp. Couture’s 2-bands, half-spectral, RMS, program-dependent detector finds each and every transient. No internal thresholds.
Couture is unusually versatile:
Make individual drum tracks a lot more dynamic and punchy
Remove the “click” out of a kick drum sample
Make a whole bus more or less dynamic in a single click
Give glue to a mix with light compression and saturation
Use a subtle saturation that preserve dynamics
Deess the very start of notes for vocals
Give life to inane lead synths
NEW in Couture v1.2
A more solid peak detection
Couture transient detection was made more systematic with respect to short events.
The difference is usually subtle, but is easiest to hear with the shortest attack times. You’ll find that the gain change feels more “solid”, as the peaks are processed more evenly.
If you are a Couture FULL customer you can change the oversampling in Couture, for an extra-edge:
x1 oversampling can be useful to have a very dry transient shaping,
x2 is the default oversampling in Couture,
x4 is an intermediate which is more CPU-conscious than x8,
x8 is a bit expensive CPU-wise but makes aliasing disappear.
x4 and x8 are a bit darker and analog-sounding than other oversampling rates. This is on purpose!
This parameter is only available in the FULL Edition of Couture. The FREE Edition is always oversampled x2. This oversampling applies to both saturation and transient shaping.
Dry Mix knob
You can now mix Dry unprocessed input alongside with the Wet signal.
Such Dry input will not have the phase change caused by the oversampling stage and/or distortion filters: as such it can be used as a kind of “New York transient shaping”.
Faster audio processing
At x2 oversampling, Couture v1.2 goes 40% faster than Couture v1.1.
Fix volume spikes at startup
Couture used to have long and wild volume spikes on instantiation. Sonic outbursts will now stabilize faster at startup.
