Flux

Flux - Alchemist V3

Be it a serious problem with the dynamics in a mix, a delicate mastering assignment, or a situation with complicated dynamics, Alchemist provides everything you need in order to accomplish.

Designed with professional mastering and re-mastering applications in mind, the intricate design, superior workflow, and sound perfection, makes Alchemist tailored for the high demands of today’s music and pro-audio industry.

Multiband Features

Alchemist's five bands are divided using carefully fine tuned IIR (Infinite Impulse Response) crossovers with selectable slopes (from 18 dB per octave to 54 dB per octave), and variable corner frequencies, each of them providing:

  • Flux:: core dynamics processors all operating in parallel:
    • Compressor
    • De-Compressor
    • Expander
    • De-Expander
  • The BitterSweet Transient Designer
  • MS (mid/side) Control.
  • Auto Delay (Introduces a delay line in the processed signal allowing zero attack time).
  • Selectable level detection mode and dynamics detection profile
  • Dynamics processing envelope control (Attack, Hold, Release with optional Auto mode).
  • Input / Output gain control.

Signal Processing Features

  • Input/Output gain controls for adjusting the levels before and after processing.
  • Phase invert of the processed signal.
  • Dry Mix control (Dry/Wet with gain compensation) allowing for parallel processing or for blending some of the original "peak" into the processed signal.
  • Clipper, a discrete peak limiter at the very last stage of the processing chain rounding off the peaks smooth and musically.
  • Bypass routes the incoming signal direct to the output for a true smooth transition between processed and clean signal.
