Master Chain Bundle

FX Bundle by Exclusive Bundles+

Add the final polish to your musical masterpieces and make sure your audience hears your tracks just like you intended. Masterings make all the difference in how your music plays back to the listener. With this essential set of modern mastering tools, we are providing the finals steps needed in your mastering chain to make sure your tracks sound professional.

Pulsar Mu is the most faithful emulation of a modern yet legendary tube compressor/limiter – perfect glue for mixing and mastering.

Sonnox Inflator is a unique and powerful plugin to increase loudness, without sacrificing sonic quality or dynamic range.

TDR NOVA GE is a parallel dynamic equalizer. Appearing in the familiar layout of a parametric equalizer, the plugin also includes flexible dynamics processing options allowing the coverage of an impressively wide range of applications.

The Master Chain Bundle is exclusive to Plugin Boutique and available for a limited time only.

Pulsar Mu

Pulsar's modelling technology guarantees a perfect emulation of the behaviour of the original device. From the saturation of the magnetic flux in the transformers to the precise response of the tubes, to the effect of the tiny calibration defects, everything is perfectly reproduced. If you are curious, take a look at the technical article on the subject.

External Sidechain

The Pulsar Mu, as all compressors should do in the digital age, allows you to define an external sidechain input. This opens a very wide range of applications: ducking, de-essing, filtering the sidechain signal with your favourite EQ, or even applying dynamic processing.

Mid-Side Processing

The Pulsar Mu comes with built-in optional M/S encoding and decoding, which enable to process separately with different settings the sounds panned to the centre and those panned to the sides. Additionally, the “Listen” buttons simplify the setting by allowing you to listen only to Mids or Sides, and the modern visualization can be set to monitor only the channel you’re working on, so you will always know what you’re doing.

Look Ahead, Look Behind

This innovative feature enables to shift the timing of the gain reduction signal with respect to the input. The look-ahead enables the Mu to start reacting to transients even before they are played, ensuring a perfect limiting. Conversely, the look-behind delays the gain reduction, so that fast transients can be left unprocessed, the corresponding GR peak occurring too late. This opens up various possibilities like clipping to the transients after the Mu for example.

Flexible Sidechain Equalizer

The sidechain equalization section is simple but efficient. You can let your mix breathe by preventing low frequencies from triggering compression with the High-Pass filter, adjust the response to vocals or other instruments thanks to the parametric bell filter, and keep the influence of the top-end under control with the positive or negative High-Shelf filter.

Low CPU Consumption

The Pulsar team spent a ridiculous amount of time optimizing the processing so that it consumes very few system resources despite the very complex algorithm inside. The Pulsar Mu takes full advantage of the CPU’s features to do more with less. But if your computer can stand it and you enjoy making it suffer, you can always turn over-sampling on and process at up to 384 kHz!

TDR Nova GE

Be it a master lacking density, the drum bus asking for more crispiness, or a sibilance problem in your perfect take: NOVA has an elegant musical answer.

NOVA GE includes a total of six dynamic EQ bands, each with independent dynamics processing ranging from downward compression over upward compression, upward expansion, up to downward expansion (incl. gating). Flanked by powerful highpass and lowpass filters, the processor covers a wide range of tasks.

In addition, an advanced “Smart Operation” panel offers a unique way of automating and orchestrating the plugin for spectral matching, resonance removal and much more.

A user-friendly WYSIWYG drag and drop display paired with a classic “knob” interface gives quick and smooth access to the various parameters driving NOVA’s powerful signal processing. Elaborate equal loudness functions help to find the optimal setting without getting distracted by loudness differences.

NOVA GE also features all helpers and workflow enhancements you’ve come to expect in a TDR plugin: A preset manager, undo/redo, A/B, detailed documentation, copy & paste, and much more.
