NEXT: Mildon Studios Provoc Primer

VST/AU plug-in instrument/effect round-up: Week 34
Mildon Studios Provoc Primer
PC/VST, €14.50

Provoc Primer is the latest plug-in to take the ‘less is more’ route when it comes to options, giving you just a single Shape knob that you can use to apply EQ and compression to your vocals. The idea is that enough to compression is applied to ‘glue’ the vocals together, while leaving room for more further down the effects chain. The price listed above is an introductory one.

Mellowmuse LM1V Limiter
PC, Mac/VST, AU, RTAS, $99

A stereo/mono brickwall limiter that promises to achieve high loudness without adding too much distortion. You can use it on individual tracks or the mix bus, while you get separate attack and release controls. There’s a link button so that stereo tracks can be processed as individual channels or as a pair.
