Aradaz Simple Look Ahead Maximizer (SLAM) Release!!!

Hello guys,

This is another maximizer VST plugin for you limiter freaks. The plugin is based on my older maximizer the Aradaz Maximizer, I just simplified the limiter algorithm, add the look ahead adjustment parameter and replace the character parameter to release.

Honestly, the older Aradaz Maximizer is more transparent than this, but the look ahead feature is very useful especially for bass range music (just set the look ahead to large sample e.g >100 samples and then release at 0 s).

These are the features:

  • Maximize, up to 20 dB
  • Look ahead, up to 1024 samples
  • Release, from 0 to 1 second
  • Ceiling, down to -20 dB
Download it from the right side bar of this blog, and donation is very welcome because I'm going to be married on January 2010 he..he.. :)

Thanks guys, enjoy the plugin!

Aradaz Amp Crunch Updated to v1.4

I made some improvements for this crunch amplifier VST. I think there's not much different in sound quality, but it still good as always :D. After a few hours of development, so here it is:

  • Better gain control, the gain knob is now more responsive to distort than the previous one.
  • DC removed, the forgotten one he..he.. sorry.
  • Better cabinet simulator engine, it makes some reducement to the CPU consumption, it's a good thing.
  • All samplerates are 2x oversampled, even the 88200Hz & 96000Hz samplerates are oversampled (not like the previous version), the CPU consumption is still lower.
  • About box added, now you can see who the Aradaz Amp Crunch coder and graphical user interface maker. But, could you find where to trigger the about box?
Thank you,
Please inform me if you found bug(s).

Aradaz is Back

Hello guys,

After 3 months of silence, I'm back.
The last three months were so boring.


This is the story,
a few days after I got my PC worked, I tried to make an impulse response of my Behringer MIC200 preamp. I was using a 5 second sine sweep at 0 dB, Tracktion as the recorder. My speaker was off.

The first trial ran smoothly. I made the IR. Turn on my ESI nEar 04 speaker, and then I tested the IR using a VST convolution plugin. Hmm sounded no good. I had to try to make another one.

The second trial. I used the same sine sweep at 0 dB. Looked around to make sure that all set, press record and played...


Me : "aaarrrgghhh"

a very loud sound came from my speaker, I forgot to turn the speaker off. You know, 0 dB 20 Hz to 20000 Hz sine sweep. My Speaker couldn't handle that. After I pressed stop. A huge ground sound / humming came from the speaker. I blew the power speaker off. A few days later, I sent it to a service center.

I just brought it back yesterday. I kept the speaker there for three months because I had to work out of town.

That's all, I'm not a good story teller.

Welcome back me...
