Plugin Alliance ADPTR Sculpt v1.3.0 VST, VST3, AAX, x64

Next-Generation Dynamics Processing:
ADPTR Audio’s Sculpt represents the future of dynamics and tonal control.
Designed for master and group buses, Sculpt allows you to carefully and cleanly alter your sound in ways that other processors simply cannot.
It’s powered by a wonderfully transparent “upward” compressor, a more traditional “downward” compressor,
and powerful tonal and transient “Sculpt” sections.
Use it to add refinement touches to masters and mix buses,
or to enhance certain elements in samples, stems, and instrument groups.

✔️ Features
Four parallel modules:
Sculpt is built on four dynamic modules working in parallel. The Upward Compression module offers an unusual approach to dynamic control with greater transparency, while the high-end Downwards Compression offers more traditional dynamic control. The one-of-a-kind Tone Sculpt module enhances or suppresses specific aspects of your sound, while the Transient Sculpt module manipulates the onset of each sound for precise control over its sonic “envelope”. Each module has its own mute, solo, and output indicators so you can see and hear how they affect your sound.
Master Tone Manipulator:
Each of Sculpt’s modules features frequency controls that affect how Sculpt analyzes your signal. These serve as sidechain EQ controls in the Compressor modules, tonal balance controls in the Tone Sculpt module, and transient selection controls in the Transient Sculpt module. The Tone Sculpt module also includes a tonal balance graph that displays the frequency balance of tracks, allowing you to constantly monitor your tone. The beauty of Sculpt is that it does not apply frequency-dependent processing. Instead, it acts to amplify the input signal from sample to sample, resulting in incredibly transparent results.
Distortion-free dynamics control:
Sculpt uses an advanced envelope detection algorithm (EDA) that mimics the way humans hear sounds, making it more responsive than conventional compressors. EDA detects the audio envelope with lightning-fast accuracy, allowing Sculpt to perform distortion-free even when processing complex material using ultra-fast attack and release settings. Use Sculpt to apply light to heavy side chain compression without worrying about distortion.
Auto-Gain that actually works:
The problem with most dynamics processors is that they don’t take perceived loudness into account when applying gain, which means you often end up with a “level-matched” signal that sounds much louder or quieter than your input signal. Sculpt analyzes the full frequency response of the incoming audio signal and adjusts its controls accordingly, allowing you to make accurate A/B level comparisons. The presets included with Sculpt also adapt based on the dynamics of the incoming audio signal, so you can hear what they’re supposed to sound like.

✔️ Features
Transparently shape the dynamics, tone and transients of individual tracks, buses and masters.
Four dynamics modules including upcompressor/expander, downcompressor/expander, tonal balance module and transient processor.
A tonal balance visualizer that accurately displays the tonal balance of incoming audio.
Each module comes with low and high pass filters and a tilt equalizer.
Independently bypass each module’s stripes and scale the processing applied to fine-tune the sound.
Envelope Detection Algorithm (EDA) that ensures distortion-free processing even when processing complex material.
Advanced Adaptive Auto Gain (AAAG) analyzes incoming audio and precisely applies gain correction based on how a person hears the sound.
Main mixer panel with bypass control, wet/dry mix knob and mid/side processing options.
Extensive library of presets that adapt to the needs of your material.
